Re-installing...because of a MOUSE problem!

I decided to completely re-install Arch from scratch on my lappy (save for keeping the /home partition of course).

Why? Mouse issues. Specifically, the newest Synaptic touchpad driver that came with the update to Xorg 1.9. I've been having a hell of a time getting the sensitivity correct (first it was too slow, then too fast), and the pointer would also stutter on occasion (I even posted in the Linux - Desktop forum about this little issue; still hasn't received any replies)....

Future Plans...maybe?

Posted 01-24-2011 at 05:10 AM by brianL

Two awesome, momentous, earth-shattering events are imminent. OK, that's a bit of an exaggeration. The release of Slackware 13.2 (or will it be 14.0?), and Debian "squeeze" becoming stable. This will mean major reorganisation here, on my computers. These are possible options. Out will go XP Pro from my laptop, replaced with "squeeze", giving a dual-boot Slack + Debian. On my desktop, Slackware and Arch. I've recently tried Arch in VirtualBox, and liked it. And I might keep Ubuntu...

Chromium Settings Window replaced with settings page

Posted 01-23-2011 at 10:00 AM by Kenny_Strawn (Kenny the one-teen comittee to stamp out Proprietary $uckware)

For those of you who have the Chromium Daily PPA, what was the Properties window has moved here.

Apparently, Chromium is becoming more and more like Chrome OS every day

What is your opinion?

Please tell me I'm not weird...

Posted 01-22-2011 at 06:02 AM by MrCode

I don't know why I'm posting this...

I seriously feel like a creep. No, really.



Go ahead, laugh. ...or do whatever it is you do when you see someone post something so amazingly immature (e.g. eyebrow raise, head shake, sigh, any combination of the three, etc.).

I'm @#$%ing 19 years old and still have a soft spot for cartoons, particularly anthropomorphized animals...tell me that...

A Journey With 'mksysb'

Posted 01-21-2011 at 10:04 PM by mufy (From A System Admin's Desk)

When the shit hits the fan, you take cover. Or, you cold stay right there, enjoy the spray and get new insights. Well, that's what I did - stood there and it was a learning experience.

It all began with an 'mksysb' backup failing on one of my development boxes. I'd start the backup, leave it for the day, and find the process stuck at one point when I come in the next day.
Code:
Creating information file (/image.data) for rootvg..

Creating list of files to back
