Rebuild a package without commiting changes?

Sometimes I want to quickly pull a .deb package, modify its source code, rebuild it and install for testing purposes. Quite often I need multiple takes to write a correct patch and dpkg-buildpackage -uc -us -Jauto complains that I first need to run dpkg-source --commit. Is there a way to bypass the checks and just build the package without creating a new patch and a CHANGELOG entry?

Rebuild an .exe as a Java package

i have some server files for an online game (silkroad),

and they all are .exe and infected

i want to make a clean, bug-free and virus-free clone of them that does the same job but in java for learning and experimental purposes and also i wanna run it on Linux

so the question is

if i have an .exe, how to look at it’s code so i can make a clone of it? or what are the available ways to do the task?

I’ve searched many times and found dis-assemblers and debuggers but this is gonna be pain

Besides a rebuild, how can you become native to Toril if you currently aren’t?

So, let’s say you are a prospective 1st level kobold ex-paladin but, alas, you failed to decide to be native to Toril. Besides the rebuild rules present in PHBII, what methods exist that allow you to alter your native status?

Official 3.5 material, including dragon magazine material, and un-updated 3.0 material is okay, but no third party stuff. This question is about what works, not what is balanced (I mean, it’s a question about a facet of Pun-Pun-ness, so hopefully that was already clear). Our criterion for judging whether your history is sufficiently altered or not and to what extent is how unambiguously it qualifies you as a potential target for the Manipulate Form ability of the Sarrukh from Serpent Kingdoms provided you count as a Scaled One.

Taking over a project. Should I scrap and rebuild? [on hold]

I’m taking over an Opencart solution for a client. This is for my capstone at College. I’m to create a simple CRM (Customer Relationship Management) software that will live as a single page application in the site.

Opencart is a free, open-source e-commerce platform based on the LAMP stack.

Currently, the client’s site is live, but it is not a store, and will never be a store. They have 5 registered users. The site just has content, and little functionality.

Should I convince the Client to scrap and rebuild what he has?

I have some concern with the current solution because it seems to be far too complex for the needs of the project.

Thanks for any insight.

ninja – how to rebuild incrementally?

I am trubleshooting LTO compile of the webkit-gtk.

Its build infrastructure is cmake-based. Cmake generates ninja files and ninja does actual building.

Project is big and its compile fails at the end. Each time I make a change, and use “ninja” to rebuild the project, it starts from scratch.

Is there a way to make ninja rebuild just the changes, like “make” usually does ?

RAID 5/6 rebuild time calculation

I plan to build some storage schema but I have to anticipate downtime, maintenance and rebuild Time.

Some guys said to me that a 10 disk RAID6 of 10To (SATA) rebuild will last for about a week ! an some company policy ask for stopping activity on Array when rebuilding.

If I use RAID 5 or 6 or 5+1 or 6+1 is there an approximate formula that can give me hint on rebuild time depending on disk size and type (SAS/SATA/SSD). something like rpm x size(Mb) x type-factor x nb-of-disk …

I would like to be able to anticipate all rebuild time scenario depending on Size/type of RAID/type of Disk.

I know it may depend on hardware quality, but let says I am out of dedicated hardware like 3PAR / STOREWIZE / NETAPP or likes. I am using conventional servers with traditional SAS or SATA drives with software RAID.
