LFS by a newbie, part deux progress report...

Posted 01-07-2007 at 05:05 AM by threekgtvr4

Well, since my last post on building <a href="http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/">LFS 6.2</a>, I've completed chapter 5 with no further problems and moved on to chapter 6. I should have finished with the LFS build in 8 days, but it's taking me some extra time because I am using the <a href="http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/hints/downloads/files/more_control_and_pkg_man.txt">More Control and Package Management Using Package Users</a> hint. The reason it's...

A Rude Surprise

Posted 01-06-2007 at 11:15 PM by Oblivia

OK, so I got Ubuntu installed and slowly running (slowly, until the replacement RAM comes in. I hope.) so the next step should be to install stuff I want to run on it, right?

As it turns out: Ubuntu doesn't like RPM files - you have to use something called deb files to load new software. Of which I have none. Aaargh! I guess this is why they call what I'm doing the "School of Hard Knox"....

Progress!!

Posted 01-04-2007 at 09:47 PM by Oblivia

OK! So asking dumb newbie questions on the forums <strong>does</strong> work. Between this site and linuxforum.org, I got the idea that this was probably a hardware problem. Generally, the advice was "bad CD drive" or "not enough memory" -- as it turns out, everyone was kinda right: it was actual RAM that had gone bad. Of course, it took a <strong>lot</strong> of Googling to find the documentation for the PC and a long time to pore through it all and...

My First Blog!

Posted 01-04-2007 at 02:19 PM by Oblivia

Now I can say I'm a blogger, too! I guess this will be the way I chronicle my journey from Total Linux Newbie (my Linux experience, to date? I saw some guy at work using it once) to..... Linux Geek? Dunno -- I think Competent User would make me happy enough.
So, where am I now? One of my New Years resolutions is to get smarter about this computer stuff. I inherited a cast-off PC from work that has a really old version of Windows on it -- nobody knows of any logins or passwords so I'm starting...

Change your Network card MAC ( Media Access Control) address Using macchanger

Posted 01-04-2007 at 06:43 AM by sridhar11

Media Access Control address, a hardware address that uniquely identifies each node of a network. In IEEE 802 networks, the Data Link Control (DLC) layer of the OSI Reference Model is divided into two sublayers: the Logical Link Control (LLC) layer and the Media Access Control (MAC) layer. The MAC layer interfaces directly with the network medium.Consequently, each different type of network medium requires a different MAC layer. On networks that do not conform to the IEEE 802 standards but do conform...
