x86_64 part 2

Posted 03-06-2012 at 09:57 AM by Rod3775

When XWindows was ported to 64 bit architectures, the decision was made (probably for legacy compatibility) not to add a 64 bit data format to routines that return overloaded pointers, specifically XGetWindowProperties. Pointers, which are 64 bits, are returned in 64 bit elements that are claimed to be 32 bits. There is no way to cope with this in user code, except to check which architecture you are running on. The compiler define "__x86_64" is set on Intel 64 bit compilers. wmctrl (not...

x86_64 software issues part 1

Posted 03-06-2012 at 09:39 AM by Rod3775

This was my first experience with 64 bit software. I did a stock install of Slackware64, and ran into the following issues:
(a) wpa_supplicant could not reauthenticate after a disconnect.
(b) wmctrl did not work correctly (could not return window list)
(a) I tried to patch wpa_cli to monitor wpa_supplicant and restart it, and discovered that when it is compiled with -O2 (as specified in its Makefile), gcc-4.5.2 compiled bad code - the return value of a function returning...

Multiple server certificates with Apache 2

Posted 03-06-2012 at 07:22 AM by kavinga (My experiences using linux)
Updated 03-06-2012 at 07:24 AM by kavinga (Spelling mistake)

Now it's possible to use multiple certificates with Apache 2 server.By default Apache only permit one certificate for each virtual server.So to deal with more than one certificate we have to create 2 virtual servers and assign 'ServerName' variable for each.

Intel DP67BG motherboard issues, pt 2

Posted 03-05-2012 at 07:23 PM by Rod3775

The wireless dongle that comes with the DP67BG has the USB ids for an MSI 3070. It contains a Ralink 2870 chip, which is not really very documented. Slackware64 comes with dueling drivers for it. Loading both is a bad idea. The ra2870sta driver needs to be blacklisted in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf. The ra2x00/ra2860 set of modules (4 in all) will be loaded. Needless to say, you need to go to the modular kernel to make all this work!

At this writing, there are problems keeping...

Intel DP67BG motherboard issues - pt 1

Posted 03-05-2012 at 07:11 PM by Rod3775

This motherboard comes with a wireless dongle for connection to an internal USB header, cable included. It also comes with enough SATA cables for army (at least in the retail package). The metal backplate that goes around the external connectors is very fat a springy, and I had to pre-mash it in order to mount the motherboard in my tower. The wireless dongle stays inside the case, and must be mounted on a plastic surface so the signal can get out. Unfortunately, my tower has only metal panels for...
