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 . . .

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"...

Wireless security and MITM

Posted 08-20-2006 at 01:26 PM by taupist

<div class="alt1">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Most of us have heard of "Man In The Middle" attacks, one form that MITM takes is this:

Ethereal on Mandriva 2006 Community

Posted 08-04-2006 at 10:34 AM by taupist

<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Finally I hit on the idea that the first error might be causing all the others. It was saying that it couldn't
<br />find '/usr/sbin/dumpcap'. When I looked, I found '/usr/bin/dumpcap',...

Some good, some ?

Posted 02-01-2006 at 11:46 AM by taupist

<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; In the time since I started out, I've bought copies of Mandrake 6.0, Suse 8.2 Pro, Mdk 9.1 Personal,
<br />RH 6.0 &amp; 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...

My early experience with Linux.

Posted 01-16-2006 at 02:20 PM by taupist

<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The first experience I had with Linux was in about 1999, when I found a copy fo Mandrake 6.0 in a
