If you insert the Mac OSX (Leopard) Install DVD; the only thing you see is the WindowsSupport part of the DVD. If you want to access the OSX Install content of the DVD you need some extra tools.
  • download & install multipath-tools
    In a terminal as root
    • tar -xjf multipath-tools-0.4.8.tar.bz2
    • cd multipath-tools-0.4.8
    • make && make install
  • Map the dvd to a loop-device
    losetup /dev/loop0 /dev/sr0 (/dev/sr0

Upgrade to Karmic

Posted 12-17-2009 at 05:22 AM by bhupendra

After my first upgrade to Karmic Koala, virtual box stopped working. After several attempts, went back to Jaunty. Several days later, upgraded to Karmic. Virtual box worked fine, but Skype stopped working. Tried several things including re-installation of pulse audio. Nothing worked. After a few days tried Skype, it was working. Can't explain why it started working all of a sudden.

I now have a mailing list set up for the project. If you would like to be informed of the first release, or if you have any questions, please consider subscribing to the list:

Recommending KmPlot

Posted 12-17-2009 at 01:58 AM by CoderMan

I would like to recommend KmPlot, the "Mathematical Function Plotter." I have been looking for a software tool I could use to make quick displays of functions, for the purpose mainly of double checking my math homework.

Previously I used Fung-calc, but evidently the code is getting rather old and has a number of issues causing the software to be marked as not-recommended in my distribution. I do not use KDE, but KmPlot provides an attractive and versatile user interface...
