Installing sun-java6-jre on Ubuntu 10.10


Today I was trying to install Sun Java JRE.


to install sun-java6-jre on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, type the commands below in Terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository "deb lucid partner"
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre




When I ran the first command above I received the following error:

sudo: add-apt-repository: command not found


I ended up having to run this command and everything was made better

sudo apt-get install python-software-properties

Turbo Charge Eclipse / CFEclipse / Aptana

Today I was going through my google reader and I found an article on how to turbo charge Eclipse by Mike Henke.

I replaced my eclipse.ini file with the options he suggested and the startup time and performance has been better.  I will report back after a few days if I have any issues.

Javascript Rounding

I had a javascript calculation that was displaying a ton of decimal points.


Here is a way to round to 2 decimal places in Javascript:



var total = 123.433

total = Math.round(total*100)/100  //returns 123.43

Break up a large filename for transfer

Today I was trying to transfer a file from 1 server to another.  At first I thought the file was too large, so I set out to break up the file.


Credit goes to Techie Corner.


To Split the file:

split --bytes=500m /home/photosrandycc.tar.gz /home/bu



To Restore the file:

cat bu* > photosrandycc.tar.gz


Turns out the real issue was virtualmin actually set a 1GB quota.

Flush Logs on MySQL Without Restarting the Server

For the longest time I thought you had to stop mysql and rename the log files and then restart when on Windows.

That's definitely not the case.

Simply rename the error log file and then run this command and it will reset the error log file.  Be sure to change out the username to your username.
