Bad File Descriptor Error in Linux

In a Linux system, files, blocks, directories, sockets and other items are referred by corresponding file descriptors. If your system is reporting errors that the file descriptor is bad, one of possible causes is that file system is corrupt and thus, you require restoring from backup. But if backup is not valid enough to restore complete information, you need to use advanced Linux Data Recovery applications. As an instance, you might encounter the below error message with your Linux based system: “Bad file descriptor” You might receive this error while trying to access a file or while trying to boot the system. Cause Possible reasons for the ‘Bad file descriptor’ error to occur are: Linux systems use a special file, called /dev/null (also called the null device). This file removes all the data that is written to it after reporting that the write process has succes... (more)

Twelve New Programming Languages: Is Cloud Responsible?

Do we need programming languages? You may think that the answer is no. But, if you go by the recent trend you may need to change your mind. Consider for example the following questions: Why is Google working two (GO, DART) new programming languages? Why has IBM (X10), Cray (Chapel) and Red Hat (Ceylon) working on creating a new programming language of its own? Why did the attendees of a recent conference in London select 5 (HTML5, DART, Scala, Clojure, Node.js) new languages as the most important software development trends for 2012? What does Neil McAllister mean when he says that these 10 (DART, Ceylon, GO, F#, OPA, Fantom, Zimbu, X10, Haxe, Chapel) programming languages that could shake up IT? Why did Anders Hejlsberg of Microsoft, the creator of Turbo Pascal, Delphi and C# launch TypeScript? Are new programming languages getting created just to satisfy the creativ... (more)

Live CD Linux Distributions

Many people feel that if they get something for free there is no real value in it, but that's not always the case. Free doesn't always equate to low quality or "cheap." Especially when it comes to open source and free software. I am often fascinated by the caliber of the many open source and royalty-free applications available and useful to a variety of organizations, from business to government to education. In homage to those people who develop and donate their applications to the community, I am focusing on a collection of tools from the open source community that can be used to solve common PC problems. These solutions are not only without licensing fees, they are adaptable to different needs of various classifications of users. I chose to focus on Linux-bootable CD distributions and the utilities included with them for a range of applications from bioinformati... (more)

The Software Freedom Conservancy – Fundraising Campaign: Non-Profit Accounting Software

The Software Freedom Conservancy has a plan to help all non-profit organizations (NPOs) by creating an Open Source and Free Software accounting system usable by non-technical bookkeepers, accountants, and non-profit managers. You can help them do it by donating now. To keep their books and produce annual government filings, most NPOs rely on proprietary software, paying expensive licensing fees. This is fundamentally at cross purposes with their underlying missions of charity, equality, democracy, and sharing. You can help Conservancy fix this problem by donating now. They seek to raise $75,000 to employ a developer for one year to make substantial progress on this project. Sounds like a good deal.
