Running WebAssembly from Windows 10 or * Linux

Linux Questions - Fri, 12/16/2022 - 23:01
First off lets start off with facts. Java, last I checked, if you download the official JDK, can be run from Linux or windows, with "java helloWorld". That would run the Java bytecode program helloWorld.class, which is assumed to come from helloWorld.java.

From official sources, can you do that with web assembly? What command would it be, and would it be cross platform, the same?

I'm trying to find out so I can, in a way, "hook onto it". Nothing malicious.

'Couple in Car Survive 300-Foot Fall Into a California Canyon'

Linux Questions - Fri, 12/16/2022 - 22:55
Quote:
After unbuckling their seatbelts and crawling out of the car, Ms. Fields and Mr. Zelada faced their next challenge: calling for help in a remote canyon
with no cellphone reception. It was about 2 p.m., with temperatures in the 40s, Sergeant Gilbert said. At night, temperatures in the canyon drop into the 30s, he
said.
Mr. Zelada looked for Ms. Fields's cellphone and found it about 10 yards from their car, with the screen smashed. Even though there was no cell service,
the phone had detected that there had been a crash, Ms. Fields said. Her iPhone 14 gave her a prompt to contact emergency services through a new feature called
Emergency SOS via satellite.
In places with no cellular or Wi-Fi coverage, the service allows users to send emergency messages via satellites hundreds of miles above the Earth,
according to Apple. The phone relays the answers users give to a few short questions to an emergency call center, along with the user's location, according to
Apple.

Photos taken by Ms. Fields showed the aftermath of the crash. She said she remembered Mr. Zelada's telling her as the car fell: "We're OK. We're OK. We're
OK."

Ms. Fields said her phone had instructed her to point it toward a satellite and hold it there, which allowed her to summon help.

"It was honestly strange," Ms. Fields said, adding that although she is a "very techie kind of a person," she had not known about the satellite feature. https://www.nytimes.com/2022/12/16/u...ne-rescue.html

Unable to get Hauppauge WinTV-dualHD tuner working on EL9

Linux Questions - Fri, 12/16/2022 - 21:29
I am running AlmaLinux 9.1 (kernel 5.14.0-162.6.1.el9_1.x86_64) and I am attempting to install a Hauppauge WinTV-dualHD USB tuner. According to all of the documentation I can find, this tuner is linux-compatible and the drivers for it have been part of the kernel since 4.17 (please see the linuxtv.org listing here for details).

When I plug the tuner stick into my system, I am able to see it with lsusb:
Code: [user@localhost]~% lsusb
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 007: ID 2040:826d Hauppauge 955D If it were working properly, my understanding is that I should have a few device files; in particular a device file at /dev/dvb. Unfortunately no device files are getting created.

When I plug it in, here's what I see in dmesg:
Code: [ 1678.060191] usb 1-6: new high-speed USB device number 17 using xhci_hcd
[ 1678.186831] usb 1-6: New USB device found, idVendor=2040, idProduct=826d, bcdDevice= 1.00
[ 1678.186843] usb 1-6: New USB device strings: Mfr=3, Product=1, SerialNumber=2
[ 1678.186848] usb 1-6: Product: 955D
[ 1678.186852] usb 1-6: Manufacturer: HCW
[ 1678.186855] usb 1-6: SerialNumber: 0014330228 Based on my internet searches thus far, I should see a lot more dmesg activity. I am assuming the appropriate kernel modules are not loaded (in particular, the modules for em28xx-dvb, si2157, and si2168). It seems like these modules should be part of the kernel, but I don't appear to have them (for example, "modprobe em28xx-dvb" doesn't work), and there are no EL9 packages that appear to include them. I note there are some EL8 packages that include them (see here) as well as several Fedora packages (see here). But nothing for EL9.

I feel like I am missing something obvious. Am I just doing something colossally dumb? Were these drivers/modules removed from EL9 upstream for some reason? Or have the appropriate modules simply not been built for EL9 yet? I would be happy to put in a request to EPEL and ask that they be forked and built, but I'm not even sure what to request (there is no kernel-debug-modules package for EL9 yet...should there be?).

gnome-terminal-3.44.1; Edit-->Select All selects only part of its output

Linux Questions - Fri, 12/16/2022 - 21:15
Hi.

For years the stock Terminal that came with Linux Mint Cinnamon allowed me to Edit-->Select All in order to copy the Terminal's entire output for pasting into a text file.

Does anyone here know how to fix gnome-terminal-3.44.1 so that Edit-->Select All works as it should?

gnome-terminal-3.44.1's Preferences offer neither remedy nor clue.

FTR, I tried mate-terminal 1.26.0+mint1+vanessa. It has the same issue as gnome-terminal-3.44.1.

Specifically: Edit-->Select All only selects the lower portion of a lengthy Terminal output instead of the whole thing.

Something else is going on. But what?

Linux Mint users on MeWe insist that this is an Ubuntu 22.04 LTS package base problem. This, I can believe, given its still somewhat buggy behavior at times. Hence:

Server distribution recommendation

Linux Questions - Fri, 12/16/2022 - 18:46
Dear LQ-members with diverse Linux experience!

I'm looking for a good server Linux (or UNIX) for my home server.
I like the thought of FreeBSD being mainly from one contributor, but because of hardware compatibility and my good knowledge of Linux I'd prefer a Linux. Please help me find a good "alternative" to FreeBSD.


What I hope to get:
  • OpenSource & free
  • point release updating cycle
  • very stable
  • very well tested
  • non-"chaotic" environment / update behaviour (kind of FreeBSD-feeling)
  • slow pace, maybe bit conservative and calm environment/updating (kind of FreeBSD-feeling)
  • no GUI
  • major release support ≥ 4 years
Optionally:
  • able to host VMs
  • NAS optimised
What I'm going to use it for:
  • remote backup
  • hypervisor, if possible, otherwise I'll run all in one system
  • NAS (via VM, but same OS, if possible)
  • web server (via VM, but same OS, if possible)
Hardware I'm going to use:
  • HP ProLaint MicroServer or similar

Not compatible distributions to myself:
  • OpenSuSE
  • Debian
  • Ubuntu
  • Oracle Linux

My current ideas are basically downstreams of REHL
  • Rocky Linux
  • Alma Linux

If you have any further distributions I could use / should try, please tell me, and also let me know, why you think so.

pdfplumber im.show doesn't work but im.save() works fine

Linux Questions - Fri, 12/16/2022 - 18:41
Actually, I'm trying to get table data from a pdf, but the table has not borders. Turns out, it is quite tricky to pick up the empty cells as well! But that's not relevant here!

The documentation for pdfplumber at PyPi clearly states that im.show() should work.

Code: pdf1 = pdfplumber.open(path2pdf + my_pdf)
page = pdf1.pages[0]
cropped_page = page.crop(bounding_box)
im = cropped_page.to_image(resolution=150)
im.save(path2pdf + "test1.png", format="PNG") The documentation also says change /etc/ImageMagick-6/policy.xml from

Quote: <policy domain="coder" rights="none" pattern="PDF" /> to

Quote: <policy domain="coder" rights="read|write" pattern="PDF" /> I did that, rebooted to be sure the new policy was loaded.

But still im.show() won't work. This in the Idle shell:

Quote: >>> im.show()
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/python3.8/idlelib/run.py", line 559, in runcode
exec(code, self.locals)
File "<pyshell#19>", line 1, in <module>
AttributeError: 'PageImage' object has no attribute 'show'
>>> Like I said, I can save the cropped page image.

Any ideas why im.show() won't work?

I do a similar thing for my little multi-choice answer form programme and there im.show() works.

my android phone won\t mount in i3 window manager.

Linux Questions - Fri, 12/16/2022 - 16:44
greetings,

I have two window managers, mate and i3.

In mate when I connect my phone via USB, I get a prompt on the phone to allow the mounting. In i3, I don't get this prompt and so I can't mount the phone.

I know my linux mint distro installed the tools to mount android filesystems because it prompts and then mounts the phone in the mate desktop. Why is i3 not prompting me to mount my phone?

Any help is appreciated.

Cron job output result

Linux Questions - Fri, 12/16/2022 - 16:33
I had recently a system CRASH and was forced to reinstall KDE Neon Plasma from scratch. It took a couple of days to restore and reinstall some apps and it seems to all work OK now.

I am using the built in Task scheduler to run a Backup cron script to an external hard disk. This also works OK, but the script output of the end, DOES no longer show up, it creates an EMPTY log file on the desktop, below is the command line that used to work, but now doesn't.

usr/bin/rsync -a /home/alexe/afolders/ /media/alexe/Elements/$ldow/ >/var/tmp/anajob.out

Nor does this command:

/usr/bin/rsync -a /home/alexe/Desktop/ /media/alexe/Elements/$ldow/ > /home/alexe/Desktop/dback.txt

Any help will be good
Many thanks
Alex
