Network Scripting, Debian style.

Posted 09-29-2009 at 07:27 PM by ofaring (Debian, This That and the Other)
Updated 01-02-2010 at 02:17 AM by ofaring

Everybody has a different idea of how to get connected. More and more people only look for automagic network connections or fancy GUIs to accomplish their bidding, but that's not me. So, in the interests of old hardware and always knowing exactly where I'm getting a connection, here's my methodology.

This involves modifying /etc/network/interfaces and the use of some simple bash scripting. Pertinent info on the networking process can be found in the Debian Reference Manual, chapter...

Posted 09-29-2009 at 02:34 AM by Mr. ameya sathe (Tantra Yantra Swatantrya)

You are on a much needed holiday. Cooling yourself on some nice hillstation. Clicking digital photographs. Suddenly; you realize that your memord card is full. Still; few more days are left for your holiday to complete.

When should one pay for free software?

Posted 09-28-2009 at 03:10 PM by Lufbery (The Slacker's Blog)

I've been using Slackware Linux since version 11 came out. So, that would be since late 2006. Prior to that, I used a free CD of Ubuntu -- and I just remembered, before that I used a free Knoppix live CD.

So for nearly three years, I've been using Linux (now pretty much full-time at home) and I haven't paid for anything. I figured that this time, I would pay for my upgrade to Slackware 13 -- except that money is very tight right now and the cost of the DVD is somewhat prohibitive....
