Reddit: Installing gcc without internet access

3 hours 6 min ago

How do you do this? I have the source file, and when I run

../configure/ --prefix=$HOME/.local --enable-languages='c c++'

It spits out this

checking host system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking target system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu

I'm scratching my head as to why this doesn't seem to work.

Reddit: Pro-tip when archiving entire disks: overwrite each filesystem's unallocated space with zeroes for a perfect compression ratio

5 hours 13 min ago

If you're archiving personal disks and don't care about the pseudo-random unallocated data, write a file containing all zeroes to each filesystem:

$ dd if=/dev/zero of=zerofile

Once it's done, delete it:

$ rm zerofile

Later on, if you archive your images, the empty space will compress to a near-zero total size where it would otherwise be wasting space for no benefit. This works kind of like a zip bomb, but intentional. This also applies to pushing an uncompressed image over a network: if you use compression, you'll use minimal network traffic for the zeroed areas in the image.

I'm archiving a disk over a network right now, so I thought I'd share in case it would help anyone!

Reddit: Are there terminal only Linux distros similar to Amazon Linux AMI's?

Sunday 1st of February 2015 02:24:51 AM

I have to configure a barebones Amazon Linux AMI at work, which doesn't have access to internet (deals with sensitive data). I was hoping to access it over the weekend but their instances seem to shutdown on non-work days.

Is there a way to get access to something similar? I was thinking of getting my own Amazon Linux AMI, but I have to transfer a few large files and I don't have the fastest internet (Australia).
