The linux war stories: episode 1 - SCO...got to start somewhere

Posted Yesterday at 11:11 PM by binary_pearl

While I should keep the company I worked for a secret out of respect; it was a major retail chain in the US with about 7000 locations at the time.

The year was 2007. I had only been working for 2 years in my career, and I had already advanced to the infrastructure team. At that time we were still using SCO Unix 5.0.5 or 5.0.7 on all of the servers at each location.

Ethernet disconnects on battery power/ac power is unplugged.

Posted 01-22-2015 at 01:18 PM by s.verma

This problem may be due to the fact that laptop-mode tools is running and it's configuration has entry

DISABLE_ETHERNET_ON_BATTERY=1
in file /etc/laptop-mode/conf.d/ethernet.conf

DISABLE_ETHERNET_ON_BATTERY=0

(If you do not know how to (re)start a service, then search on google for how to start/restart a service...

Gnome 3.14 is winning back disillusioned Linux users. I have installed Nvidia’s proprietary graphic driver 340.65 in this new version of DebEX. Furthermore Google Chrome to make it possible to watch Netflix movies. All other installed packages have also been updated to the latest version as of 150122.
