    Default Linux & Humor

    I came across this old one, adjusted for openSUSE:

    Ever got bored of posting output in the forums, having to use "cat /this/and/that" all over again and again, wondering why it had to be "cat"? Doesn't have to be like that, take a look here:

    Code:
    Knurpht:~ # dog /etc/SuSE-release 
    If 'dog' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
        cnf dog
    does not work, looks like it's not there, let's try the bin folders
    Code:
    Knurpht:~ # locate dog | grep bin
    Knurpht:~ #
    now the magic:
    Code:
    Knurpht:~ # zypper install dog
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    Resolving package dependencies...
    
    The following NEW package is going to be installed:
      dog 
    
    1 new package to install.
    Overall download size: 23.0 KiB. After the operation, additional 48.0 KiB will be used.
    Continue? [y/n/?] (y): y
    Retrieving package dog-1.7-188.1.x86_64 (1/1), 23.0 KiB (48.0 KiB unpacked)
    Retrieving: dog-1.7-188.1.x86_64.rpm [done]
    Installing: dog-1.7-188.1 [done]
    So the dog-package is installed now, let's see if it works
    Code:
    Knurpht:~ # dog /etc/SuSE-release 
    openSUSE 11.4 (x86_64)
    VERSION = 11.4
    CODENAME = Celadon
    And what does the man-page say?
    Code:
    Knurpht:~ # man dog
    
    
    DOG(1)                                                 User Manuals                                 DOG(1)
    
    
    
    NAME
           dog - better than cat

    as far as i can tell, there is no dog in oss, non-oss, update or
    packman.. :-)

    so, maybe cat is better for the cautious and stable seeker ;-)

    Of course not, I should have checked that. Cat comes from OSS, Dog comes from Contrib. You could have guessed it's no good to keep both cat and dog in the same repo
