To edit grub, when the grub screen comes up, press 'e' to edit the boot line, likely this is pointing to the wrong drive, it should be the first.
(It probably has sdb, it should be sda.) Once booted, go to /boot/grub & alter the configuration file with the same drive.

Thank you, Fatmac!
I read the manual and the page:
and you really answer my question! Grin

Likely you could use an awk script, see man awk. However, I think gnumeric may be able to import your files to work on.

It's the curse of this forum striking again.

I just click the "Report to Moderator" button on a few of them and wait 'till John loggs in next. Last login was October, so it shouldn't be too long (if we're lucky, he checks once a month or so).

Hello, friends:
I have some .xls files.
I want to get the value of specific cell, F1 (for example) of all the files and print the results as .csv, .txt. or .gnumeric.
Could it be posible with scripts?

What, if I may, does this have to do with DSL 4.11rc2? Looks more like an advertisement for clothing, thus being thoroughly off topic, and as such, is spam.

I realize it is a while since the last post, but having used DSL on and off for years I have just discovered that it includes a C compiler as standard: tcc. It's a very neat compiler, which compiles very quickly and has some nice built in features including a memory checker and a stack trace output on error, so no need for a separate debugger to find out where your program crashed.


This won't help you with c++ but if you install gcc (gcc1-with-libs.dsl) you get gcc and g++ so can compile C and/or C++, this package also contains make. The gnu debugger is separate however, you need to install the gdb.dsl package... however this looks quite an old version.

Hi, OK thanks. The page you mentioned seems to give quite a good explanation of the ethernet situation on the eOne - I can see it seems problematic. When you say you don't know how to compile the driver, could you be more specific? The webpage mentions some instructions. Is it that you get errors when you follow them, or are they the type of instructions that assume you know/have things that you don't? Happy to help if you're stuck. Regarding the C-compiler, DSL has tcc built in, but you may need to install GCC, which can be found in the system section of MyDSL.

Thank you, Raffles!
I have a problem with the tulip driver for the ethernet port of eone emachines.
I have read the article http://electron.mit.edu/~gsteele/eone/ 
but I don't know how to compile the driver.
I tried to use an usb-adapter...but I can't get one for

I'm assuming the spam answer above didn't help. To use netcat, you need a working network connection between two computers. It seems unlikely you'll manage this with an audio cable - although soundmodem does sound interesting, but something fun to experiment with rather than get a reliable connection.

I'm not familiar with your hardware but I believe the eOne has a 10base-T ethernet port and the Compaq Presario V2415LA a 100base-T port. Assuming the laptop supports both speeds (not just 100Mb/s), all you need is a crossover ethernet cable to connect the two together. Once you have a network connection there are lots of ways to transfer files.

Even though the E1 has very old and slow ethernet, it will still be vastly superior to a sound modem type connection - maybe 1000 times faster.

I hope this helps.
