HarzileinDeimos__: use printf
stewDeimos__: echo -n
HarzileinDeimos__: it is the only portable way of doing what you want
claudio`Can't i install Xorg from an official mirror using apt-get?
Harzileinstew: is undefined in posix
Deimos__ty =)
justinclaudio`: are you using a debian release that includes xorg?
claudio`i've installed debian from a net disk
IlovemypuppyI usually use the netinstall
Guerinclaudio`: /msg dpkg which version
IlovemypuppyI dont know if thats what youmena
stewHarzilein: doesn't matter
IlovemypuppyI love the netinstalls, but damn those daily builds are a roll of the dice
stewHarzilein: for instance: dash -c "echo -n foo"
dondelelcaroecho -n works in almost any shell that matters.
stewand /bin/echo -n works otherwise
dondelelcaroand if you really care, you can just use /bin/echo
Harzileinit isn't relevant if it is /bin/echo
it is still the echo command
ewanm89claudio`: What error message
Harzileinand therefor its behaviour if the first argument starts with a - is undefined
stewHarzilein: what is a shell for which echo -n won't work?
claudio`Guerin: would you know my dpgk version? ;)
ewanm89: no errors.. just the xserver-xorg package is not found
dondelelcarostew: there are a few, but you have to go to old unices
Guerinclaudio`: how would I, it's *your* computer
claudio`Guerin: i've big problems with the english language, yet. Can you do a clean answer, please?
ewanm89claudio`: Pastebin /etc/apt/sources.list
actionasg gives Guerin a Handi-Wipe
asggives Guerin a Handi-Wipe
tralalaclaudio`, type "/msg dpkg which version" in your irc software
Guerinclaudio`: type /mag dpkg what version' in your irc client to find out how to check what you're running
/msg, not /mag
Harzileinpublic:/home/indy013 $/bin/sh -c 'echo -n foo'
-n foo
claudio`ok.. i'd get the command
let me run it
Harzileinstew: that's /bin/sh on a still supported aix installation
JordiGHIs phpBB insecure? Or is that just hearsay?
actiondondelelcaro notes that echo -n working is actually mandated by Debian policy
dondelelcaronotes that echo -n working is actually mandated by Debian policy
HardDisk_WPDoes anyone know a configuration program for EXIM4?!
