Debian and Google Chrome

Posted 08-09-2011 at 06:52 PM by DJ Shaji

I'm really beginning to like Google Chrome. It is definitely fast, loads web pages quickly, and uses just about the right amount of memory. The only caveat I've encountered is that there are still not many quality extensions available. Hopefully that will be fixed soon.

Missing Debian Sound Control

Posted 03-18-2011 at 11:18 AM by drask

Apparently "update-rc.d" does something essential

Posted 09-04-2010 at 10:20 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

I thought all it did was to create symlinks with the proper prefixes in a automated way for a given script, something that one could do manually... but apparently it does something more.

But perhaps I just did something wrong when trying to do it manually, like using the wrong runlevel folders. Or perhaps it was just the difference from priority 20 to 19 that made the difference even though I thought the key was to be a higher priority (i.e., a lower number than) than 22.
