Hello gentlemen how are you. All your base are belong to us ????

My X server just shut down leaving me with a black screen full of messages, mostly relating to vlc.
In the middle of all this was the above message.

Do we have a developer with a sense of humour or is this something I should be worried about?
I never run the system as root although I usually leave a root terminal open.

Bizarre.

$ cd vlc-0.8.6f/
$ fgrep -R 'All your base' .
./doc/ChangeLog-2001:      * All your base are belong to us.
$

It's not from VLC. I suggest grepping the source of other software you were running.

That's odd. This thread is on Reddit.

Anyway, since I posted earlier I actually got the message myself. Turns out Openbox prints it when it crashes, as a sort of easter egg.

Re: Hello gentlemen how are you. All your base are belong to us ????

This is ringing many, many bells with openbox.
*scratches head*
*greps openbox source*

-> grep -r "your base are" *
Binary file openbox/.libs/openbox matches
openbox/mainloop.c:            fprintf(stderr, "How are you gentlemen? All your base are"
Binary file openbox/openbox_openbox-mainloop.o matches
->

Hm, maybe someone decided to get all funny with their error messages like the OB devs did... or maybe it was the other way around.

The most likely cause is that this message is a SIGSEGV (segmentation fault) trap - a message that is printed to std{out|err} when the app crashes, since OB prints the AYB when it's crashed too.

You can actually segfault apps manually with `kill -SIGSEGV <PID>' or killall -SIGSEGV <processname>'

Windows was made for looking at success from a distance through a wall of oversimplicity. Linux removes the wall, so you can just walk up to success and make it your own.
