Plop Linux - Plop Boot Manager and Plop Linux is a small distribution that can boot from CD, DVD, USB flash drive (UFD), USB harddisk or from network with PXE

Plop Boot Manager and Plop Linux is a small distribution that can boot from CD, DVD, USB flash drive (UFD), USB hard disk or from network with PXE. I have used Plop, to Boot from Floppies, CD's and USB's for several years. It can Boot, a PC from many Mediums. I like, that it can Boot to a USB Stick, on a PC that does not have USB Support in the BIOS...

Dtrx – An Intelligent Archive Extraction (tar, zip, cpio, rpm, deb, rar) Tool for Linux - dtrx Intelligent archive extraction

I you work in the Terminal and need to extract Archive Files, of different types. Check out Dtrx – An Intelligent Archive Extraction (tar, zip, cpio, rpm, deb, rar) Tool for Linux. I almost always, just use Krusader File Managed to do this. But, sometimes you may be on a system, without Krusader, installed. Or run into an Archive File format, that is not supported by Krusader. I just installed Dtrx on my Fedora 23 System, in the Graphic Yum Package Manager App. I imagine, DNF, the new Fedora Package Manager will have it too. I tried out dtrx, on a Archive file in my Downloads folder. And it unpacked the Archive, into a new folder of it's own, in my Downloads folder. A pretty cool, app and easy to use. See the ScreenShot Below...

dtrx: Intelligent archive extraction

Introduction

dtrx stands for "Do The Right Extraction." It's a tool for Unix-like systems that takes all the hassle out of extracting archives. Here's an example of how you use it:
$ dtrx linux-3.0.1.tar.bz2
That's basically the same thing as:
$ tar -jxf linux-3.0.1.tar.bz2
But there's more to it than that. You know those really annoying files that don't put everything in a dedicated directory, and have the permissions all wrong?
$ tar -zvxf random-tarball.tar.gz  foo  bar  data/  data/text  $ cd data/  cd: permission denied: data
dtrx takes care of all those problems for you, too:
$ dtrx random-tarball.tar.gz  $ cd random-tarball/data  $ cat text  This all works properly.
dtrx is simple and powerful. Just use the same command for all your archive files, and they'll never frustrate you again.

Features

  • Handles many archive types: You only need to remember one simple command to extract tar, zip, cpio, deb, rpm, gem, 7z, cab, lzh, rar, gz, bz2, lzma, xz, and many kinds of exe files, including Microsoft Cabinet archives, InstallShield archives, and self-extracting zip files. If they have any extra compression, like tar.bz2 files, dtrx will take care of that for you, too.
  • Keeps everything organized: dtrx will make sure that archives are extracted into their own dedicated directories.
  • Sane permissions: dtrx makes sure you can read and write all the files you just extracted, while leaving the rest of the permissions intact.
  • Recursive extraction: dtrx can find archives inside the archive and extract those too.

Linux App Record my Desktop can rescue a Failed or Interrupted Video Render - recordMyDesktop Man Page

The Linux Desktop Recording App "record my desktop" can rescue a failed video render. Read more below. Run the listed commands. Check out the info links too, on how to work with "record my desktop" in a Terminal Command Line App...

Don

Quote from the recordMyDesktop Man Page

-rescue path_to_data

Encode cache data from a previous session, into an Ogg/Theora+Vorbis file. The file name will be the one that was chosen initially. Any other option specified with this one will be implicitly ignored and recordMyDesktop will exit after the end of the encoding. This option was added in recordMyDesktop 0.3.7 and it will not work with cache files produced from earlier versions. When using this option, remember that recordMyDesktop's cache is not safe, in respect to type-sizes and endianness.

Here is the Command Line - Terminal Output. From a couple of my "-rescue" runs. That I did on two different "recordmydesktop" "tmp" - "cache" Folders. I let this run for 4 or 5 hours. Then a Thunder Storm, came in and I wanted to go to bed. So, I had to shut down the computer. I can't stand the noise and heat, from this Computer running, while I'm sleeping. After all that time. I started it again, the next day. We'll see how long it takes. Unless I have to stop it again. The file, so far was 92.5mb in size. And it's not Not a really long video, at about 17 minutes so far. That's the Problem, with rendering these Desktop Videos, on a Core 2 Intel System. That's only 1.8GHz and has 3Gb of Ram. It just takes too long to render them...


[don@RedBlackBioStar rMD-session-24324]$ recordMyDesktop -rescue
bash: recordMyDesktop: command not found...
Similar command is: 'recordmydesktop'
[don@RedBlackBioStar rMD-session-24324]$ recordmydesktop -rescue

[0%]  [Cache File 2]

(That's were I stopped and shut down the Computer...)

Here's the Test run, I am doing on my Lenovo i5, Intel Quad Core System. With 4Gb of Ram. This is a much smaller set of "tmp" - "cache" files. So, it should take allot less time. Especially, since this system is more powerful. I noticed, that the % is counting up the bytes, as it works. Here's the Terminal Output, from this run. It finished, while I was writing this. Took about 5 to 10 minutes... 
Note: this is the command I ran "recordmydesktop -rescue /home/don/Videos/rMD-session-19217". But, I got an error. Saying, it Can't write to the File. Which is pointed to the Directory, from the Specs.txt file. I'm pasting the Specs File info below... I fixed the problem. By making a Folder, with the exact name. That the Specs File was looking for. The Directory Names are Case Sensitive. I'll Paste in the Terminal Output, below...
