Finally I've managed to set this up.
Putting my experience here, hoping it will help someone and would be on top of google results.

There are reasons for me to keep 9.64 instead of using 10.x versions. The one reason is that opera 9.64 is somehow more secure, since, most users usually upgrade to newer version (since opera is not windows/linux-bundled) and newer versions look nicely. I don't need new functionality that is bundled with 10.x tree, the other reason for why I'm...

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!

Webcam help in later Linux distros

When installing a uvcvideo compliant webcam with a built-in mic (i.e. Logitech Webcam Pro 9000) in recent Linux distros, you may encounter an issue with pulseaudio and the built-in mic. If using the webcam with Skype, Skype will automatically select Pulseaudio for all Sound Options. A solution for OpenSuse 11.1 is to uninstall pulseaudio, rename config.xml in home/yourname/.skype/yourskypename/, then reboot your machine.

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. First, the recent memory leak fixes in Firefox seem to work in Windows, but it still seems to leak in Ubuntu. Second, Iíve read in some forums that IPv6 might be a contributing factor........
