Old laptops love Linux

Posted 04-09-2012 at 10:46 AM by error_401
Tags laptop, linux

I'm using Linux on 2 own laptops and have installations running on 3 others.

One is a 7 year old siemens-nixdorf laptop used by a retired person for internet e-mail and a bit of card games. He loves it for the speed and ease of use. Especially the order of the programs in the very simple groups such as "Internet" "Multimedia" etc.

One is a 5 year old Toshiba. It came to me with a very ugly virus, trojan, worm infection. Unable to get rid of it under...

Static network config not based on interface name or MAC address

Posted 04-08-2012 at 04:57 PM by Skaperen

Traditionally, static configurations of IP addresses were made based on the interface names, which were always constant. When the kernel started doing device probes in a way that interface names would vary from time to time even on the exact same set of NICs, then we needed udev to keep things orderly. Turns out even udev can be fool when you change NICs, or when moving system hard drives to a new machine. New MAC addresses mean the old interface names are unavailable. So network configurations...

Wishing Linux had partitionable loopback/virtual disk

Posted 04-08-2012 at 04:46 PM by Skaperen
