HP Omnibook 550 USB Wireless

Posted 01-11-2006 at 03:40 AM by geirh


I need some help to configure wireless LAN (built in USB) on a omnibook 550. So far without success. So I wondered if there is somebody outhere that could give me some information.

So far I assume that following steps is necessary:

1) The correct driver. (PRISM 802.11b Wireless LAN USB driver - HP Omnibook 550?)? C-code(source code) or exe code?

Vista Iced 'til 2010, Microsoft says.

"In an effort to regain dwindling consumer trust Microsoft has decided to reschedule the release of Micosoft's Vista.
All resources are being redirected to building a more secure O.S. before introducing new bugs."
OK. So that's not going to happen, right? I think it should. Those who (are forced to) pay to use Mockerysofts products should have a vote in what should happen next instead of letting the marketoids reign.

Randomness - iPod 30GB(5g) and linux

Posted 01-08-2006 at 11:15 PM by microsoft/linux

Ok, so I got a 30 GB iPod for christmas, and I have some decent sucess with linux. Below is how I've gotten it working with debian etch.

This guy apparently is a debian developer, and has made a patch for gtkpod to allow transfer of video. This is extremely useful. I use handbrake for video conversion.

First, I made a new directory to mount it on
# mkdir /mnt/ipod
I then added this to my fstab
/dev/sda2       /mnt/ipod
