  • 2. [9fans] Plan 9 port namespace directory and $DISPLAY in leopard
    Hey, How do you guys deal with the the $DISPLAY variable in leopard? The default on my machine dies because $DISPLAY contains a directory name(something like: /tmp/launch-hAKQ0T/:0) which messes up getns when getns tries to make the ns directory(tries to make a non-existent path). I fix this by starting X11 from the terminal and setting $DISPLAY to ':0'. How have you guys been getting around the problem? Noah

yeah, I'm seeing this here. Linux is into "fail because it fails" mode. 

Funny: I have an old X24 and a new T41. Last set of upgrades to SuSE, it
turns out the old X24 can only run new kernels, since 2.4.xyz busted
somehere; 2.6.10 is fine on the X24. The new T41, however, can only run
old kernels. So for the newest kernels I use my older laptop.

Of course, a lot of this is the fact that PC hardware sucks so bad, but 
Linux is still getting pretty complex pretty fast. I think it passed 
Solaris a while ago.

5.[9fans] [9fans ] What's the best access method to Plan9 from Linux

Hi all,

Currently, I installed a Plan9 system on a computer while I still
usually work under Debian Linux running on another computer.  So I
wonder how I can conveniently access the Plan9 system from my Linux
box?  That is, what is the best way to access Plan9 from Linux?  SSH?
or any other more Plan9 welcome methods?  And, of course, I have tried
to learn them from Plan9 wiki but feel yet difficult to understand
some concepts there, such as u9fs etc.

BTW: I have used ``Plan9 from user space'' port on my Linux box for a
while.  Is it useful to meet the mission mentioned above?
