My new laptop

I just bought a lenovo t410 off of ebay. I think it was used overseas or in Canada, as it has a wimax card and wimax is not very huge in the U.S. (the big isps need to squeeze as much money as possible out of us after all). Anyway, I had an old toshiba satelite p4 (3.2ghz I believe) that I had to put linux on as windows XP ran the fans underneath constantly (fans underneath!? This is what caused the overheat problems on many toshiba models. The brand now goes into my do not buy category along with...

Well, for work at least.

I use Debian Live (Jessie) to do my work, at work, rather than using Windows as installed. The boxes are unfortunately P4s, so not exactly modern and snappy.

For the past few months, I have been using a desktop which I replicated from Crunchbang. Openbox, tint2, a simple conky config and their keyboard shortcuts. I've been happy with it, and accessing the menu with <Super>-<Space> is great.

With a new live build, something...

Datashack Update - Shelves!

Posted 01-01-2015 at 11:06 PM by ttk (Unpopular Positions: One Geek's Take)

I finally got around to hanging a couple of shelves in the Datashack, and I don't think the crazy person who constructed the building used proper 2x4 studs. The shelf brackets had holes on either side, about an inch apart, and I had to toe-in the screws pretty hard to get both of them to bite into stud. They must have used 1x4's or 1x2's or some other wacky thing.

Anyway, two shelves are in, and the equipment on that side of the building is on them (though I need to figure out something...

NEWS 141229
All packages in MeX Linux have been upgraded to the latest version by 141229. Cairo-Dock has been added. The most important change is that I have replaced the install program Ubiquity with MeX Installer. The installation to hard drive is now so simple that a 10 year old child can do it. Watch a SLIDESHOW of the hard drive installation process.

MeX Linux is once again based on Linux Mint. (I.e. Linux Mint 17.1 – codenamed Rebecca, released...

Beware of wrong mount options when mounting /var at a separate partition

So, it suddenly dawned on me that the permission denied thing may be related to the noexec option in /etc/fstab (I'm mounting /var on a different disk than /). Turns out I'd used the following mount option: UUID=b5ae50cf-58e6-46f8-8313-6c1492dcc8ad /var ext4 defaults,users 0 0 and, while defaults implies exec, users instead implies noexec - as the latter is last, it will override the previous one.
