Gentoo GCC 4.1.1 Upgrade

Posted by Ben Reubenstein Thu, 31 Aug 2006 16:34:46 GMT

Today I had the pleasure of upgrading several Gentoo boxes to the 4.1.1 GCC and glibc 2.4. Since I had a lot of time on my hands, I pulled information from the forum and the Gentoo Documentation to create a Gentoo Linux GCC 3.4.6 to GCC 4.1.1 Upgrade Guide. Feel free to leave comments with corrections/suggestions.

Remember to use this as a supplement to the gentoo documentation!

New Tutorial: Using Crontab 2

Posted by Ben Reubenstein Sat, 06 May 2006 11:36:00 GMT

For a while now I have been doing a lot of regular tasks manually on my OS X box. On my linux boxes I have been using good old Cron for these tasks. Today I started using crontab, since it is installed by default on Mac OS X. There are several tutorials and sites that have information on crontab, but they were not as direct as I would have liked so I put together this tutorial, Using Crontab with Mac OS X, Unix, and Linux. Enjoy!

Burning .cue / .wav with CDRDAO 3

Posted by Ben Reubenstein Thu, 17 Nov 2005 20:15:00 GMT

I have had some .cue/.wav files that I have been trying to burn for a long time. The long .wav file has every track of the disc so putting it directly into iTunes would be super l@m3.

I downloaded CDRDAO here. After compiling and installing, I ran this command to burn the disc on my Mac (Tiger):

cdrdao write --device IODVDServices --driver generic-mmc my.cue

Of course, replace my.cue with your cue file and have the .wav file in the same directory.
