Howto set up a Wireless Bridge in Debian

Posted 12-17-2008 at 03:34 PM by sridhar11

A wireless router is great when toting a computer with a wireless interface around, but moving a wired computer to another room or floor often means stringing an unsightly Ethernet cable through the house. The alternative is buying a wireless adapter, hoping that a Linux driver is available for it (there often isnít). Even a wireless interface is no good when used out of range of the wireless router.

Okay, so I got the machine in late yesterday and this morn, I immediately put in Xubuntu 8.10 alternative cd so that I could get the encrypted private directory without much hassle. Also, I kinda wanted the surprise of seeing what I would boot up to and what would be available. I am now writing this entry from it.

Here is the lshw output (removed USB stuff:

The begining

Posted 12-17-2008 at 10:37 AM by KianTern

For some time now I come up with different ideas how to make Linux a better OS.
Mostly I write down these ideas on my PC at home in hope that one day I'll have time to implement them.
Unfortunately I don't, so the ideas are gathering dust.
Some of the ideas are general concepts that are not related to specific application or even OS.
Some I even doubt can be implemented at all.
I've decided that I'll post some or all of them here in hope that someone will like...

Virtual Machines and Ubuntu 8.10

Posted 12-17-2008 at 08:29 AM by proji

So over the weekend I finally got round to installing Ubuntu 8.10 into a virtual machine environment using Parallels Desktop (which I maintain is a great piece of software).

My initial impressions of Ubuntu 8.10 were not that different to my impressions of using Ubuntu 7 in so much as it looks pretty similar. I can't say I've ever been a fan of Ubuntu's default brown look. The system itself always shows great promise, but the default theme feels a little drab.
