Window-Jacking

Posted 03-26-2009 at 10:25 AM by thebusker

Grabbed me a USB, these instructions and altered the boot order on her machine. I give it about two weeks before she's a convert.

My main machine is a Frankenstein beasty. The box was some old Pentium III which was gutted and overhauled. Old 1999 monitor, industrial strength sound card, wireless only, 64 bit chipset... it's a study in contrast.

Day < 5...

Posted 03-25-2009 at 11:14 PM by thebusker

Right-o,

Been tackling this Linux beast for some days now, and I have settled on Debian.

I don't have sound and I don't have internet, but I have Linux. It's a start.

This whole thing began as some sort of immersion therapy attempt to learn C. Got myself a K&R, a Debian Distro and have just downloaded Emacs with my *cough* Vista box.

The plan is to work my way through K&R, get my audio and net up with some help from LQ, et.al.,...

I got wireless working on the Asus 1000HE. It was pretty easy: I installed the madwifi drivers and -tools from slackbuilds.org, as well as wicd from the Slackware /extra repository, rebooted and ...

New Blinkenlights II: Blinkenlights vs. Predator
