Compile the Linux kernel

Well, i’m on a debian box and  i have to upgrade my kernel, my actual version is 2.6.18 .
The debian repository suggests a kernel image version 2.6.26 and i can get it by a simple:
sudo apt-get install linux-image-2.6.26-1-686.
For more fun, we will try to get the latest version (2.6.28) of kernel and install it.

let’s start :
$ sudo apt-get install initramfs-tools ncftp
$ ncftp ftp://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/
ncftp/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6>get linux-2.6.28.tar.gz
$ tar xzvf linux-2.6.28.tar.gz
$ cd linux-2.6.28
$ cp /boot/config-2.6.18-6-686 .config
$ make menuconfig
$ make
$ sudo make modules_install install
$ cd /boot
$ update-grub
$ sudo mkinitramfs -o /boot/initrd.img-2.6.28 2.6.28
$ sudo reboot

Card credit checker

Card credit checker, allows you instantly check credit card number for validity. It can verify Visa, MasterCard, Diners Club, Carte Blanche, American Express (AMEX), Discover, card numbers. CC Checker uses LUHN10 algorithm as well as first digits verification.Not a bad start, right? We’ve learned how to launch a Python application, something about the kinds of dialog support Python has built in, looked at a couple of sample applications, and then edited some source code not once but twice.
We’ll be producing more of these widgets on other aspects of Python’s use.

Dig it


The first step towards scripting is to choose something that you need to do and focus on.
Also, making design of application and reading the documentation, is the way to build a correct project.

In my case i’ve work out java and c, and i focus on python, a simple interpreter language object-oriented.Anyway, i was scripted that dig_it, a widget based on dnspython, and wxwidget to provide passive information from domain name server.
