comment How can I configure the Command Prompt to display French correctly?
It's not the DOS-prompt. DOS is an operating system.

comment Not able to install Ubuntu on Windows 7
To have a window is not the same as to be a DOS-like window. DOS was an OS (hence DOS). On DOS, they were called frames, or boxes, not windows, afaik.

comment Taking a modern hard disk apart?
You will find amazingly powerful neodyn magnets inside. If you don't plan to put the HDD back together later, you can destroy the screws with a power drill - I did so, because of missing Torx-drivers.

comment Not able to install Ubuntu on Windows 7
DOS-like window is a contradiction in adjecto. Better say text screen.

comment Why do printers require drivers?
I have a big, fat HP lj3100 printer, and it will not print with any driver on WinXp, ~Vista or ~7. Throw away, buy a new one.

comment Does Windows still rely on MS-DOS?
-1: Wrong. It's not to DOS (or cmd). There is a command interpreter, cmd.exe, but that's not DOS. DOS had a command interpreter too, command.com, which is very similar in syntax, keywords and usage, but the command interface is just a part of DOS; it isn't DOS.

comment Make a differentiated barchart using numbers
He only wants one bar to be divided, afaik. And I would expect the number of members in total on the y-Axis, but there is not enough data in the example, to do that.

comment Make a differentiated barchart using numbers
Shall the y-Axis show the number of members in total, so for example in the group below 30, there is one of 17 and one of 22 members, so the sum is 39 members and reaches that point on the y-Axis, or like in the sblair-graphic, where he only counts organisations.

Don't you use sudo ... for apt-get?

comment How can I see all the drives on my system, both mounted and unmounted?
What gets mounted is the filesystem on a partition, which might cover a whole disk, but I wouldn't call it mounting a drive.

comment Is there a GUI 'cat'-like program for any platform?
Well - you save it, and make a starter in your panel, or combine a hotkey to it. Shall I explain how to move it into the path (sudo) or how to set the path to include a directory where you have write access. You can start OpenOffice, Gimp, Firefox - every command from the commandline. That doesn't make it a command line app. A command line app would run in the command line, work without X.

comment Out of space while bulding Linux kernel
I didn't compile my kernel for years, but in former times, till about 2005, I did, and I did it on machines which had a total disk size of 2GB. I compiled the whole KDE. It took a whole night on a 233 Mhz machine, but I don't remember hard-disk problems. What is using so much disk-space suddenly? Yes, the kernel grew since 2005, but not that much!

comment If I have a weird IP address, is that a sign I've been hacked?
Yes, KCotreau, I understand that, but why is his IP suspicious, and not the IPs of his friends?

comment If I have a weird IP address, is that a sign I've been hacked?
1) Why? Do you believe they're magic? 2) But theirs is different from yours too! 3) eth0, eth1, ppp0, wlan0 or localhost, ts. 4) Thanks. 5) I don't know what you used - it shows up your ISP for both adresses? Then: What's the problem? 6) (overall): Why should a hacker change your IP? What's his benefit?

comment If I have a weird IP address, is that a sign I've been hacked?
What is your IP, what is the IP of the roommates? Why is yours suspicious and not theirs? Do you check the right interface? How do you check your IP? ~they theirs? Did you do a whois 212.x.y.z and whois 81.a.b.c? Why not? ;)

comment Out of space while bulding Linux kernel
@jcomeau_ictx: A recent tarball on my disk: linux-source-2.6.32.tar.bz2, is 64M in size. Extracted it will be bigger, and during compilation it will generate intermediate files, and the the final .ko-files - in /lib/modules I find files of about 90M. In total you might need 200M or 300M disk space, but not 3G.

@jcomeau_ictx: More than 3.4 GB? Not plausible.

What's the downside of being old? Can software be old? All fresh bytes.

comment Is there anything like HashTab for Linux?
+1 for explaining what it does, and not assuming everybody will know it.
