Modem Troubles

Posted 01-01-2009 at 05:22 PM by SrDorothy

I wanted to loan an older computer (Dell Dimension v333c) to a friend so she could try out Linux, specifically Xubuntu. But the (win)modem doesn't work with Linux...so I'm trying to figure out how to come by a serial external modem without investing a lot of money. I'm going to try OlyGeek in downtown Olympia and see if they might have something. And ask my OMUG friends, too! Anyway that is my project for right now; besides cooking dinner! Our cook is sick...

Installing Img2pdf Software on Debian Linux

Posted 01-01-2009 at 10:22 AM by wmromine

Chapter 1

Posted 01-01-2009 at 10:19 AM by moonbeam5

My First Blog Entry

Posted 12-31-2008 at 10:32 PM by weibullguy

This is my first ever, anytime, anywhere blog entry. I have nothing to say that anyone would care to read, but isn't that the point of a blog? I'm just waiting for BLAS to build on my "new" machine and looking for something to keep my fingers busy.

I say my machine is "new" because my wife stole my "old" machine. She recently upgraded to Photoshop CS4. Well, CS4 utilizes OpenGL 2.0. Her GPU didn't support OpenGL 2.0, but mine did. She claims I am...

Linux Imaging

Posted 12-31-2008 at 04:23 AM by sathiyadev

hi friends,

I have some basic doubts regarding imaging Linux Operating System (OS).

I have a complete back-up of my root partition and boot partition. Back-up is done using DD Utility. Below are the command i followed for back-up

dd if=/dev/sda1 bs=1k conv=sync,noerror | gzip > /tmp/boot_backup.gz (boot partition of 1 GB in size).

dd if=/dev/sda2 bs=1k conv=sync,noerror | gzip > /tmp/root_backup.gz (root partition of 20GB in size)....
