Debian live nonfree boots to console login? Why?!

Posted 08-14-2015 at 04:02 PM by WestCoastSunset

Can anyone tell me when booting to the nonfree kde version of Debian live 8.1 it boots to a console login, yet when using the the second option (failsafe, I believe it is called), I can boot into xwindows? This is why I find linux very frustrating.

unetbootin is the worst!

Vonets mini 300 wifi bridge/repeater - part 3

Posted 08-14-2015 at 03:11 PM by WestCoastSunset

Well, after having used this device for a couple of months, I have discontinued using it. I have come to discover that using a wifi bridge with a cordless phone so I can use my magic jack was not working out too well. There was an annoying buzzing on the line when using the repeater that is not present when plugging the magic jack directly into the router.

ATX Bench power supply build

Posted 08-12-2015 at 01:04 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

Still waiting on parts, but I've gotten the rails toggle switch and standby/power LEDs soldered in, and I have the load resistor in as well. Binding posts are holding up the entire show. Should be delivered today, I hope. After desoldering half of the dead electronics in the house, it felt good to put something together (even if I'm still not done).

In other news, my ATmega328P board is coming along nicely (not that I've actually *tested* it, as I'm waiting for the *ahem* bench...
