One of my non-geeky friends is currently trying Linux on his laptop. For some reason, he stopped it incorrectly and on the next reboot a fsck was forced and the fsck failed… he gets this:


*** An error occurred during the file system check.
*** Dropping you to a shell; the system will reboot
*** when you leave the shell.
Give root password for maintenance
(or type Control-D to continue):

Obviously, at this point, he had no idea what to do… He couldn’t boot into his system and he had no idea how to fix it.

THIS IS REALLY REALLY STUPID AND BAD!

And it seems all distributions are doing it, including the supposedly user friendly ones like Fedora and Ubuntu. All non-geeks will be completely lost at this point…

What should be done is: “Repairing your file system may cause errors!!! Do you want to: [F]orce Repair, get to a [S]hell or [R]eboot?” .. ideally in a nice curses front-end. And in the force repair case, just run “fsck -y”.

Hier, je suis allé monter deux sommets des Adirondacks avec Mark et Amélie. Je suis donc rendu a 4 des 46 sommets des Adirondacks (avec Marcy et Giant). J’ai fait ce beau panorama 360, mais je ne trouve malheureusement pas de beau script simple pour l’afficher de manière continue (à la manière de Google Maps). J’ai trouvé celui-ci qui me semble pas mal, mais il n’est pas 360.. Si vous en connaissez, passez le mot.

Je me suis aussi amusé avec le GPS de mon N810 à enregistrer le chemin que nous avons emprunté et à géotagger les photos.. La carte et l’ensemble des photos suivent…
