Trying to get video capability working under Ubuntu 11.10

Posted 10-09-2012 at 05:12 PM by flshope
Updated 10-09-2012 at 05:15 PM by flshope (Took me until now to figure out how to get out of draft mode)

Problem description: I am struggling to get a working video capability on my Pogo2003 machine, which was recently upgraded to Ubuntu 11.10. My specific problem is that I cannot display the magazines from https://www.zinio.com. The Zinio site requires Adobe Flash Player. I use three browsers: Opera 12, Firefox 15, and Chrome 18; Opera is always my first choice. After accessing Zinio and opening a magazine, Opera reports "Shockwave Flash has crashed"; Firefox puts up a mostly blank screen...

It's ugly. But it works.

Code:
#!/bin/sh

set -e

export LOGFILE=/var/log/build_stable.log
export ARCH=`machine`

# DEFAULT: BUILD -STABLE (UPGRADE TO LATEST -RELEASE FIRST!!)
export BUILDVER=OPENBSD_`uname -r | tr '.' '_'`

cat > ${LOGFILE} << EOF


STABLE BUILD - `date` - `uname -a`


EOF

echo "Updating Sources for ${BUILDVER}"

-m recent --rdest or don't trust the man(page)

Looking for a way to block those 404 hoppers I match the outgoing packages from sport 80 for the string 404. Now that I have those classified I needed a way to block them when they would return. Normaly i would use the recent module for this. But as its a outgoing packet and recent normally uses the source ip I would block myself to come back in. But the man pages has the --rdest option which matches/saves on the destination ip. That would be cool but I would need it to block on the incoming package....

The word anyone out there is scared of:

crash

...there, I scared you. Had one just this weekend. Arch update. Somehow the kernel didn't compile, somehow glibc didn't want to update, somehow some manual intervention had to...

how to wake on lan?

Posted 10-06-2012 at 02:16 PM by ted_chou12

Shutdown is easy but wake up is hard, well, in terms of both ppl and machines. Shutdown goes from system to bios, which makes life so much easier, but to initiate the machine, it just needs that physical "touch" to push the system. In fact, there is a built-in capability in your motherboard bios called "wakeonlan" or wol for short. First, you need to go into your bios to turn it on, since the menu may differ from company to company, you have to sort this out on your own. Make...
