urpmi.addmedia --update google-chrome http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/$(uname -m | sed -e "s/i.86/i386/")

Define Google Chrome urpmi media source for Mandriva/Mageia (works for both 32-bit and 64-bit systems)

This command adds a urpmi media source called "google-chrome" to the urpmi configuration on Mandriva or Mageia. Needs to be run as root. We specify the option "--update" so that when Google provides a newer version of Google Chrome web browser in their download system then running a system update (eg: "urpmi --auto-update") will result in our copy of Google Chrome getting updated (along with any other Mandriva/Mageia pending updates). To install Google Chrome from this source, use: urpmi google-chrome-stable #install Google chrome web browser
Sample Output
# urpmi.addmedia --update google-chrome http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/$(uname -m | sed -e "s/i.86/i386/")
adding medium "google-chrome"

  • On Mageia (and Mandriva) Linux, this command will clear your existing urpmi configuration and configure it to use only network sources. It can be useful after you have installed from CD/DVD and don't want to continually be prompted to insert CD/DVD each time you install a package. acknowledgement: blino

    urpmi.removemedia -a && urpmi.addmedia --distrib --mirrorlist

  • Update a Mandriva Linux system with any pending updates. This command needs to be run with root privilege. Using the "--force" option answers "yes" to any interactive prompts thus allowing the updates to be left unattended to completion. NB if there is an update for glibc and/or a new kernel then the system would need to be rebooted for these to take effect. A prerequisite for running "urpmi --auto-update" is to have correctly defined urpmi media sources (which can be done by visiting http://easyurpmi.zarb.org/). If there are no new updates the the message "Packages are up to date" is shown. Show Sample Output

    urpmi --auto-update --force # apply all pending updates (Mandriva Linux)

  • Simple Google Chrome profile manager using zenity for profile name input. Place this in a shell script and then use the path to it as the command field in a gnome/kde shortcut. When you start it you will be prompted for a profile to use, if you leave it blank you should get the default profile. Show Sample Output

    /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome --user-data-dir=$HOME/.config/google-chrome/`zenity --entry --text="Enter a profile name:"`

  • This function takes a word or a phrase as arguments and then fetches definitions using Google's "define" syntax. The "nl" and perl portion isn't strictly necessary. It just makes the output a bit more readable, but this also works: define(){ local y="$@";curl -sA"Opera" "http://www.google.com/search?q=define:${y// /+}"|grep -Po '(?<=<li>)[^<]+';} If your version of grep doesn't have perl compatible regex support, then you can use this version: define(){ local y="$@";curl -sA"Opera" "http://www.google.com/search?q=define:${y// /+}"|grep -Eo '<li>[^<]+'|sed 's/<li>//g'|nl|perl -MHTML::Entities -pe 'decode_entities($_)' 2>/dev/null;} Show Sample Output

  • This one liner is to kill all google chrome tabs. This works similar to $ killall firefox command which is to kill all firefox processes.

What Others Think

Eh? Someone marked this as "dangerous" but did not make any comment about why? That's disingenuous. There is nothing remotely "dangerous" about this.

Odd that I posted this almost 4 years ago on 2011-04-30 14:02:34 and only in the last couple of days (2014_04_06) has someone decided to label this "dangerous". Get real.
