Everything outside "the norm" is a disease/disorder now…

Tags awkward, rant, weird

Blargh. Yet another rant. I swear, the "rant" tag in my tag cloud is gonna get so big as to totally obscure the other ones eventually…

Anyways:

I know I probably spend way too much time on and/or put way too much stock into Wikipedia, but I just got done reading the article on "Medicalization", and I must say, that seems to be the way things are going (at least here in the US): basically a pill for everything that "cures what ails...

Lirc & xbmc time

Posted 09-21-2011 at 12:34 PM by serafean
Tags htpc, imon, lirc, xbmc

The Enna media center project stagnating, and the KDE Plasma Media center being developed in GSoC bursts, I got back to using xbmc. xbmc supports lirc, and having an imon panel with a remote, I finally decided to set it up.

The key here was understanding that the iMon device is now supported in the kernel using the new infrastructure. What this did is make the iMon device send normal input events. (I think this is mostly because it does the IR decoding directly in hardware). What...

Linux compatible hardware.

Opera Middle-Click Functionality

Just a handy hint to fix something which has bugged me for ages - if you middle click in Opera under Arch linux (and probably other distros), rather than scrolling, it tries to paste text and seems to end up searching for whatever's in your clipboard.

Luckily, this can be changed. Strangely, it's completely non-obvious.

Shift+Middle Click brings up a dialog which allows you to change your middle-click settings.

Test on prefix

Posted 09-19-2011 at 02:07 PM by ButterflyMelissa

Restart!

Partitioning, and formatting. Setting up an /etc/fstab and /etc/resovl.conf.
As a test, I downloaded lynx, and did

Quote:
./configure --prefix=$DST
where DST is the destination: /dev/sda3...

And...the install went straight to the right place: the hard drive instead of the ramdisk.

The first step is made.
