Pictures from a developers life

At work I have a Debian box, which serves as sniffer, logger, data injector and a whole array of other odds and ends. All the stuff it's not possible to coerce the company-issued standard Windows box to do.
That's nice. Linux happily goes to work and gets the job done.

Now, my company recently merged with another american company. And as a consequence of this, new, strict regulations apply to what tools we're allowed to use.
This includes ONLY properly licensed software....

Installation of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on an HP 2133 Mini-note PC

Posted 02-28-2013 at 08:43 PM by flshope

I have a little laptop computer, an HP 2133 Mini-note PC, that originally had SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 (Novell) as installed by the manufacturer in 2008.

Wireshark can be compiled on OpenBSD, but it has a reputation for security issues. I need a way to capture with tcpdump (privileged) and decode with wireshark (unprivileged) in realtime. Simple enough:

visudo (add "my_user ALL=/usr/sbin/tcpdump")
Download and compile wireshark (http://www.cromwell-intl.com/unix/co...n-openbsd.html...

Make some apps (mainly KDE apps with text fields) start faster

Just create a folder "~/.compose-cache".

Or better yet, at least in a semi-philosophical level, have your startup script to create "/dev/shm/.compose-cache" every time, and just create it once, and a soft link to your home folder. No unnecessary access to your disk, writing to and reading from memory instead. Which is often assumed to be better for several cache-type usages, both for performance and (supposedly) for the lifespan of your hard disk*. Some people...
