Python & Gtk: virtualvenv (Test Post Ignore)

Updated 03-27-2016 at 02:34 PM by taupist

I'm thinking about writing a series of blog posts about my experience with Python and Gtk programming. For this post I'm going to get started by telling you how to set up a basic virtual environment for project development.
Okay, so if you don't already have a Projects directory, then you should create one in your Home folder. The path should look like this;
Code:
/home/your_username/Projects/
Next, you should open a terminal and navigate to that folder, and enter this command;
Code:
virtualenv

Centrino / IPW 2200 Wireless for Mandriva 2007

Posted 02-23-2007 at 10:52 AM by taupist

It's absolutely critical that you get the right firmware for your driver . . .
http://ipw2200.sourceforge.net/firmware.php
For Mandriva 2007 that would be the 3.0 version of the firmware.
You then have to create a soft link to "/lib/firmware" (which is where your firmware should be); As Root, issue this command in the terminal ln -s /lib/firmware /etc/firmware Next, open "Configure Your Computer", go to "Set up a new network interface" and you should

Wireless security and MITM

Posted 08-20-2006 at 01:26 PM by taupist
Updated 03-27-2016 at 02:11 PM by taupist (corrected formatting)

Most of us have heard of "Man In The Middle" attacks, one form that MITM takes is this:
You go into a coffee shop that has a WAP and log on, pretty soon a guy comes in and sits down a few tables away from you. When he logs on (unknown to you), he activates a virtual WAP. This is possible with the Atheros wireless chipset which can be both a wireless client and virtual WAP at the same time. If he can find a way to interrupt your wireless signal then your system will automatically

Ethereal on Mandriva 2006 Community

Posted 08-04-2006 at 10:34 AM by taupist
Updated 03-27-2016 at 01:47 PM by taupist (corrected formatting)

Well, I downloaded and installed Ethereal from the mirror and guess what it wouldn't capture packets. Several error windows kept opening up on top of each other. Finally I hit on the idea that the first error might be causing all the others. It was saying that it couldn't find '/usr/sbin/dumpcap'. When I looked, I found '/usr/bin/dumpcap', so I created a soft link;
Code:
ln -s /usr/bin/dumpcap /usr/sbin/
I don't know if it is the right way to fix it (might be clumsy), but it seems to work fine

Trying different Linux distros.

Posted 02-01-2006 at 11:46 AM by taupist
Updated 03-27-2016 at 02:14 PM by taupist (corrected formatting)

In the time since I started out, I've bought copies of Mandrake 6.0, Suse 8.2 Pro, Mdk 9.1 Personal, RH 6.0 & 6.2 and Mdk 10.0 Powerpack. I've upgraded to an Inspiron 6000 and Mdv 2006 Free, gave all the others away except the first (Mdk 6.0). I'm still kind of attached to that one, hope to get it running again sometime. I was really put off by the password issues with RH, not meaning to beat a dead horse, but I just can't excuse that.
Maybe someday I'll be able to get a big HD and install
