Tips for Giving a Great Wedding Speech

As if weddings were not nerve-wracking enough, there is the added element of the possibility of having to give a speech.

Skype, Yahoo!, AIM, ICQ - WTF?

Posted 05-26-2008 at 07:55 AM by ax11

No serious IMs/VoIP-clients are mentioned in the user profile. What's wrong with Jabber/XMPP or SIP? Not proprietary enough? Too safe? Not really privacy-smashing and no annoying ads?

SU in slackware

Booting into xdm, kdm or gdm with Slackware

Posted 05-25-2008 at 01:04 AM by shannonbay

Edit /etc/inittab to boot into runlevel 4

runlevel 4 kills all the gettys except 6 for cli and 3 or 7 for X.

Then edit /etc/rd.d/rc.4 to choose your desktop manager.

Recommend the slackbook for more info.

Telstra Clear BroadBand in Slackware

Enter details into netconfig command. Also edit addresses in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1

This does not set up routing however. Use
route add default gw <gateway>
Now everything should work until you reboot.

To make the gateway permanent, you will need to add that line to rc.d - since rc.inet1 contained code that is supposed to make this happen anyway, I edited the top of the file to remove the case statements on the variable assignments.
