Installing Slackware 12.2 On An Old Dell Laptop

Posted 08-17-2009 at 01:31 PM by stuartd

I have an old laptop computer that I have had an old distribution of Fedora running on for ages. I wanted to use the laptop with QCad to create drawings of a brake van that I am helping to renovate at my local steam railway.

I could have installed QCad on the Fedora setup but it was very slow and clunky and I thought that with a more stripped down installation it might be quicker. So I decided to install Slackware 12 that I got on the DVD that came with a copy of Linux Format Magazine...

nfs (tcp & udp)

Posted 08-17-2009 at 02:30 AM by your_shadow03

My Last Interview went finally well and that too one of the questions asked was "Does NFS support TCP or UDP?" I was lucky I had read this blog before I attempted the interview. THis is what Sysadmin should read about:

Debian Testing

Posted 08-15-2009 at 06:33 PM by FredGSanford

About three weeks or so ago I installed Debian on a Dell Inspiron 2650 laptop and everything was going pretty smooth.

I did a netinst with LXDE desktop and plugging in my USB Dell 2 button wheel mouse worked. It has the 2.6.26 kernel.

Around Aug, 09, I did a safe-upgrade and now the mouse is not working at all. The touchpad continues to work.

When I run dmesg | tail, I see 'New USB device found' after unplugging & re plugging the mouse in the port....

I mean, I'm very sorry, but!

I shouldn't do, but I had to laugh this morning when reading some news about the Boxer ex-world super middleweight champion, Chris Eubank. He paid 31,000 for 28 porcelain crowns fitted to cure his lisp! It worked! but now he has a whistle when pronouncing "s". I mean I'm sorry but I fell off my chair laughing!!!
