i asked u all abt obfuscation, u guyz responded well. i got a few
ideas and did my best in the competetion and....
I WON THE SECOND PRIZE for the debugging and obfuscation
the feeling was gr8, 2 dyas before u dont know what obfuscation is
and after 2 dyas u stand 2nd in an obfucation contest.
wud like to thank u all for that ;)
i was in goa engg coll lately for a competetion and got to meet a
few ppl.what i observed was that, the popularity of linux and the
desire among the students to be thorow with linux was clearly
i spoke to students from goa and a few from belgam. these guyz do
have their local lugs and do what ever bit they can. after talking
to then it struck me that why no have some communication between
what i propose is that, since a lot is going on the lugs on the
mailing list and these things are really useful, why not share the
popular topics every week on each lug with the other lugs. what we
can do is (manually/ or automatedly) select 5 most popular topics
on the mailing list, pile up all the discussion on those topics in
1 mail and mail them to every lug so that we can have thier
we may also share the "off the mailing list" activities of each
for further discussion on this i have invited a few students from
goa lug and belgam lug to attend the workshop @ our college.
just an idea....
I am having RH7.2 installed on machine. On this machine samba is also configured for windows connectivity. From this machine i need to access folders on unix machine. For this i added two lines in /etc/rc.d/rc.local
smbmount //raman/exp_ob /n_exp_ob
smbmount //raman/imp_ob /n_imp_ob
Here raman is unix machine name. n_exp_ob & n_imp_ob are linux machine folders where unix machine folders mounted.
exp_ob and imp_ob are unix machine folders.
Folders are getting mounted correctly, but after some time I am getting following messages on screen continuously and machine stop working.
smb_proc_readdir_long: name=\*, result=-2, rcls=1, err=2
Anybody know solution for this.
You got divine hands :-). Though it worked, you should still allocate
memory to arg itself for holding array of pointers. Something like
arg = (char **) malloc(sizeof(char *) * 6);
arg = NULL;

I dont need to, I believe you about what it does.
This reminds me, there was once a feller who got down *the* "yugandhar" with a simplistic email client he was writing... remember that occasion?
I dont think there is any system which is 100% secure. But I confess, I should have been a little more specific in saying that win2K is the most stable from the M$ stable. :D
umm... May be I should keep a copy of the program as NCST seems to be partial to win2K which they have on most of their machines...
howz life sir? will you be there for the ACM meet tomorrow 1830hrs?
I dont think any standard would say to have 'page not found'(no page)
as first page. My suggestion would be to have list of mailings
lists on front page, because I wanted to change my preferences of
list, and to find link to change it, I had go to my trash and open
one of the emails after finding 'page not found' on
mm.ilug-bom.org.in. I dont have good memory to remember long link. :-)

Sorry, Wrong calander :-)
I am in... Let me know the schedule, venue and topics...
Also one more Seminar is finalized for SPCE, Andheri. I have spoken to Mr. Balasubramaniam.
The dates for SPCE is 18-19 Oct. (Sat-Sun). I need speakers for this event as well. Pls come forward with the topic(s) you are interested in speaking about.
Looking forward to favourable response.
With warm regards,

Sorry, I was under impression he used arg array as from
main(int argc, char **arg) directly. I noticed it now that he
has defined arg separately.

Firstly no need for all the hassle of cloning linux use freebsd. It's
license is unencumbered. Infact this is where they got their TCP/IP code
A compiler is smart enough to de obfusicate code and will finally generate
machine code very close to the original, which will be very difficult for M$
to defend. While small parts of similiar code may no doubt be attributed to
coincidence, it would require some stretch of imagination to forward
coincidence as an argument for an entire kernel.
We must also presume that M$' developers worked in complete isolation and
did not at any time consult any of the free developers - another tall order
considering that the orginal code writers can barely understand what they
have written in the first place.
Apart from the above hypothetical case, the real problem is about the
development model used by closed and open software. The M$Developer will
have to pick cut off date for the code they plan to copy. By the time they
come up with something useable, the open version will have moved so far
ahead that the old version will become pretty much useless. Also it is not
the kernel which is the key, it is the applications which produce the $. So
all applications on the windoze platform will have to be ported by the
developers delaying the deployment by ages.
