DD-WRT and openvpn...........SUCCESS !

Posted 07-20-2010 at 12:34 AM by damgar

Well it took most of my free time today, but I finally got my DD-WRT with openvpn working perfectly. As is often the case with open source (in my experience anyway) the tools were there for the taking, but the directions required a bit of hunting, plus some trial and error. I am posting this with a full tunnel from my neighbor's "borrowed" wifi back to my LAN and back out through my ISP and then back through the tunnel again! I'm really not the paranoid type and mostly wanted access...

Microsoft and the National Health Service

Posted 07-19-2010 at 03:43 PM by rich_c

I saw a ĎThe Registerí article late last week regarding the rebate deal between the NHS and Microsoft coming to an end. I didnít think too much of it apart from hoping that alternative (FOSS) solutions will get proper consideration. The benefits being cost savings, which would seem to be a very high UK Government priority and avoiding a situation in the future where a monopolistic vendor might feel they can feather their nest with an initial generous deal followed by less favourable terms once...

Webcam help in later Linux distros

Posted 07-19-2010 at 02:39 PM by Peepaw07

If using the webcam with Skype, Skype will automatically select Pulseaudio for all Sound Options.

Fix to slow internet in Ubuntu

Posted 07-19-2010 at 09:10 AM by WantLinuxHelp

I have been having slow internet response times for a while with Firefox under Ubuntu. I think there are probably multiple reasons here.

Linux Boot Process

Posted 07-19-2010 at 05:21 AM by QueenZ

The beautiful thing about Linux is that you can actually get to know it. Iím writing my own Desktop Environment right now so it should be really great.

  2. BIOS contains the Boot Sector Loader. What this does is it loads the first 512 byte sector (Master Boot Record at address 0000:7C00) into your RAM. It is a very small program that loads the rest of the boot loader. Since itís small size,
