Chrome for linux? A sneak preview available and it’s bloody fast

Posted in Uncategorized with tags on May 24, 2009 by Bartosz Radaczyński

Take a look at the snapshot build of the chromium (google chrome) for linux:

It is still missing the flash plugin (a major flaw), and a few other features (like the preferences) but it is REALLY fast (notice the startup time). I want this to be released, and soon!

P.S. I would also like for it to have the adblocking, but that is just my wish list ;). If I had the prefs in chromium, I’d just use the privoxy ( and be done with it, but since there is no flash plugin up till now it does not bother me that much.


Getting unxutils’ sort to work on Win

Posted in Uncategorized on May 18, 2009 by Bartosz Radaczyński

As much as I love the unxutils’ stuff (really, learning a whole lot of new stuff from Win is a little bit too much for me), the sort always displays this bloody error message that drives me nuts:

sort: read error: Not enough space

This happens when you have not given it any input! What a maningful error message right? Wait, it gets better:

sort: /tmp/sort0188000000: No such file or directory

This happens when you do not set the TMPDIR variable. Set it properly and you are good to go.
