That is good, but how to get notification that first task is completed?
We all get bell notification from the terminal.
So why not use it?
In Linux there is a tool called beep, but it is not by default in many distributions.
For the simple notification I found not as elegant, but simple solution.
If you send ASCII BEL (\007) to terminal it will beep.
So to “create” bell command just add to .bashrc
alias bell="echo -ne '\007'"
and reload it
Then you can use bell command to produce bell sound.
find / -name test.txt&&bell]]>
In case you want to see scrollback above your current screen standard tools on your terminal do not apply.
Instead you can use copy function of screen.
To do so:
Press “ctl+a” then “ESC” key.
After that you are able to navigate using arrow keys.
In general process was without major problems if we exclude extremely long wait and need to reboot the computer once more to make it work properly.
Today I’ve decided to start XAMPP to test few scripts.
Unfortunately I was greeted with following message:
8:58:37 PM [Apache] Problem detected! 8:58:37 PM [Apache] Port 80 in use by "Unable to open process" with PID 4! 8:58:37 PM [Apache] Apache WILL NOT start without the configured ports free! 8:58:37 PM [Apache] You need to uninstall/disable/reconfigure the blocking application 8:58:37 PM [Apache] or reconfigure Apache and the Control Panel to listen on a different port
Quick check showed that indeed port 80 is used.
PID 4 is usually associated with services.
Looking at services and browsing down showed that Word Wide Web Publishing Service is started by default with windows 10 upgrade.
After stopping Word Wide Web Publishing Service I was able to start Apache on port 80.
