Subject: [gentoo-user] Problem with script calling OOCalc on amd64
Date: Tue, 16 Mar 2010 00:09:37
1 Hi All,
3 I have run into a problem which I cannot explain. I am trying to run this
4 script in a amd64 installation:
6 xterm -fg green -bg black -e 'gpg Personal/data.ods.gpg && oocalc \
7 Personal/data.ods; shred --remove -z -v DATA/data.ods'
9 On a x86 system, oocalc launches, I use the file and when I close it shred
10 removes it. On the amd64 system, the file is shredded as soon as it is
11 opened. This is what happens:
13 [snip ...]
14 gpg: AES256 encrypted data
15 gpg: original file name='data.ods'
16 random usage: poolsize=600 mixed=0 polls=0/0 added=0/0
17 outmix=0 getlvl1=0/0 getlvl2=0/0
18 secmem usage: 64/32768 bytes in 1 blocks
19 I18N: Operating system doesn't support locale "en_US"
20 shred: Personal/data.ods: pass 1/4 (random)...
21 shred: Personal/data.ods: pass 2/4 (random)...
22 shred: Personal/data.ods: pass 3/4 (random)...
23 shred: Personal/data.ods: pass 4/4 (000000)...
24 shred: Personal/data.ods: removing
25 shred: Personal/data.ods: renamed to Personal/00000000
26 shred: Personal/00000000: renamed to Personal/0000000
27 shred: Personal/0000000: renamed to Personal/000000
28 shred: Personal/000000: renamed to Personal/00000
29 shred: Personal/00000: renamed to Personal/0000
30 shred: Personal/0000: renamed to Personal/000
31 shred: Personal/000: renamed to Personal/00
32 shred: Personal/00: renamed to Personal/0
33 shred: Personal/data.ods: removed
35 Is this something 64bit specific? Shouldn't xrterm behave the same in both
36 x86 and amd64 with regards to this script? How do I get it to keep oocalc
37 open and shred to kick in only after the oocalc application is closed?
