robotics stuff

Posted 07-27-2010 at 03:53 AM by William (Dthdealer) (Whaling the FOSS)

Code:
Filesystem            Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda5              20G  8.2G   11G  44% /
/dev/sda3              89M   64M   21M  76% /boot
/dev/sda7             169G   30G  131G  19% /home

My desktop computer doesn't need a lot of configuration, but my old IBM A22m Thinkpad does. Over the years I've found a few links to good information on setting up the laptop to do exactly what I want.

The first thing I need to do after installing a new version of Slackware is get my wireless card working. Here's how I do it:
