whos responsible?

Posted 03-06-2012 at 04:02 PM by hplc

Much of the different souces for help regarding BSD and GNU/Linux is about forums and irc channels, people in need of help quickly jumps in and in a stressed out sentence close to "demanding" an answer, and fast shouts out for help.

These people (unless the problem is truely complicated and sounds decent enough) gets shunned off. I myself is no exception, theres still situations when one could use a fast solution, but unable/unwilling to pay for support, and by all means,...

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...
