Tags shit-code, xfce

For almost 1+ year I've considered XFCE to be stable and well-optimized. And, well, it was. As minimalist, I have to note, there were two bugs annoyed me from time to time. The first one seems to appeared in 4.6.1 or 2, it was an issue with logging you out anyway once you pressed "Exit", even if you click "Cancel" later on.
The second one was not in xfce itself but in Thunar file manager, when copying address from bar, it copies as file:/// URL + newline, which gave me...

gentoo stage3-x86-uclibc-2008.0 hacking

Posted 01-08-2011 at 02:47 PM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

Long time no posting
Today I'm going to describe my so called experience with gentoo stage3 from 2008, linked against uClibc, a tiny C library for developing embedded environments.
I first met uClibc on my router's tomato-usb firmware. I was amazed when I've seen how small memory usage was, even for coreutils-apps.
Since that I was looking for decent inspiration to try out building my own uClibc-based environment. As I previously wrote (I think I did), I once was an assembler...

My experience with NetGear WNR3500L

Posted 11-08-2010 at 11:43 AM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

Today I've finally make it to reflashing, I was quite busy these days. So, armed with manuals over the net I started the process by uploading .chk of dd-wrt, in order to then upload .bin (renamed .trx) of tomato-usb.
My first mistake was when I uploaded dd-wrt. Actually, that was sorta minimal build, not so fresh also, I am not exactly sure what went wrong but I started to tweak it instead of moving right ahead with uploading tomatousb. When I applied some settings and rebooted it no longer...

rss-glx: 3D fireworks screensaver and more

Posted 11-07-2010 at 06:03 PM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

About two years ago, when I wasn't yet a linux user I saw a video on youtube, a comparision of two laptops, one running Ubuntu, another windblows vista.
at some moment of video the guy starts some ugly screensaver from windblows, something looks like old "pipes" from older versions of the system and then, starts this outstanding 3d screensaver with fireworks exploding under the clouds in ubuntu laptop. Which is free and opensource, yeah.
I never actually used screensavers...

Home router upgrade #2 - NetGear WNR3500L

Posted 11-05-2010 at 08:33 AM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

Yesterday I bought this cute tiny box for my home net. My previous routers were 2 PCs, first one I used since aug 2009 was P1 200mhz, 64mb ram, recent one is old celeron 2.4 ghz, 1g ram which is much more unstable than P1
These ones were using way too much power and make an excessive levels of noise, so I finally decided to trash this stuff and get myself a small box

Initially I was looking for a cheapest router supporting wifi(I have a laptop and I'm already sick of...
