Ok, this will definitely work

Use an Alternate Source Viewer with Internet Explorer

This will also let you change the "View Source" on IE.

How to play with Source in Debian

Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 Released

Slashdot comment originally written by Phil Hands (Slashdot ID #2365)

Here's the content:

so, you want to recompile package foo, well first you need some source

apt-get source foo

or maybe some newer source

apt-get source foo/unstable

or maybe you need the source that became available 5 minutes ago, in which case you do one of the above, drop the new tarball in the current directory, go into the old Debian source directory, and run uupdate and maybe fix some patching problems in the new directory that got created for you.

Next, you need to build this stuff, so let's get in the source directory:

cd foo-1.2.3

oh, but we might need some other development libraries to build this, so lets grab what we need

apt-get build-dep foo

that's better, now we can tweak some source or options maybe, and make ourselves a package


right, so now we have a new package, so we install it

sudo dpkg -i ../foo-1.2.3*deb

and it gets installed (or maybe it has some dependencies, if you got this far, you can work it out yourself) just like it was an official Debian package, which means you get to remove it cleanly, etc. if the need arrises.

Who ever said source was difficult to play with in Debian? Debian is by developers, for developers -- we like source. That's why we're into Free Software

How to fix RPM hanging

How to fix RPM hanging when you try to do anything

I started having this problem where apt would just hang. So I strace'd it, and found that it was freaking out trying to read the /var/lib/rpm/Packages file (or something). Eventually, I realized it was rpm that was cheezed, and not apt. Anyway, after many dead ends, I finally just googled for:

select(0, NULL, NULL, NULL, {0, 1000}) = 0 (Timeout)

I found the above post. If only I'd googled to start with...

That link is dead. I think the post I wanted is now here.
