ATI, X11 and kernel screw up

Posted 02-11-2006 at 10:48 PM by carboncopy

Had my linux machine X11 server screwed up.

What when wrong was, I had compiled a new kernel but never "install" it. /usr/src/linux was pointing to while I was booting 2.6.15.

Those were ok until X11 was upgraded to version 6.9.0 (Slackware-current), which normally requires a reinstallation of ati drivers. After downloading the latest ati driver and install it, X11 still works but only for about half a day and it will crash the computer....

VPN on Mac

Posted 02-11-2006 at 10:40 PM by carboncopy

VPN on Mac works now.

The VPN server is M$ PPTP server. Which requires the setting of encryption to 128 bit only. Other settings won't work.

Mac OS X routing table is an issue after connection to VPN. To do a quick and dirty trick. Get digitunnel, install it and connect using digitunnel. After that remove digitunnel and your routing table will automagically change whenever you connect or disconnect your VPN connection in Mac.
