Upgrade to Ubuntu Maverick Meerkat

Posted 11-08-2010 at 12:54 PM by bhupendra

The upgrade to Maverick went smoothly. I quite like the Meerkat. Following all the excitement about Fedora 14 Gnome, I installed it in the Virtual Box. The problem was that it kept crashing after installing the guest additions. It seems there is a bug somewhere. So I have trashed it for now. Ubuntu is just fine. I have managed to install peppermint 2010 on some friends' pcs and laptops, to replace winxp. They are not computer literate but were quite impressed. If they keep on using Linux, I shall...

My experience with NetGear WNR3500L

Posted 11-08-2010 at 11:43 AM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

My first mistake was when I uploaded dd-wrt. Actually, that was sorta minimal build, not so fresh also, I am not exactly sure what went wrong but I started to tweak it instead of moving right ahead with uploading tomatousb. When I applied some settings and rebooted it no longer...

rss-glx: 3D fireworks screensaver and more

Posted 11-07-2010 at 06:03 PM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

About two years ago, when I wasn't yet a linux user I saw a video on youtube, a comparision of two laptops, one running Ubuntu, another windblows vista.
at some moment of video the guy starts some ugly screensaver from windblows, something looks like old "pipes" from older versions of the system and then, starts this outstanding 3d screensaver with fireworks exploding under the clouds in ubuntu laptop. Which is free and opensource, yeah.
I never actually used screensavers...

Using gzip Compression in Apache to Serve Pages Faster

Posted 11-07-2010 at 07:13 AM by Focused4Success
Updated 11-07-2010 at 07:15 AM by Focused4Success

Enabling gzip compression in Apache will dramatically reduce the amount of data transmitted. This is easily accomplished by doing the following as root:

cd /etc/apache2
cat <<\! > httpd.conf.local
SetOutputFilter DEFLATE
SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI \.(?:gif|jpe?g|png)$ \
no-gzip dont-vary
SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI \
\.(?:exe|t?gz|zip|bz2|sit|rar|7z)$ \
no-gzip dont-vary
SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI \.pdf$...

This article *does* give good instruction, but if you're more experienced at building GNOME Shell, you might want to see just what GS will look like when it's closer to 3.0. Here's how to do it:

After building GNOME Shell from the main branch, remove and re-clone GNOME Shell from the repositories:

Code:
rm -rf ~/gnome-shell/source/gnome-shell
git clone git://git.gnome.org/gnome-shell
