The problem that I did encounter was that trying anything more than the basic funtions of a pc was a bit more complicated than I was accustomed to. For instance, installing a new application was...

D-Link DWA 552 chipset AR5008 (AR5416) wireless problems & solution in Ubuntu (Mint) using Ndiswrapper/madwifi/ath9k driver

Posted 08-02-2008 at 12:44 AM by awong

I'm suspecting that my problems may be due to the updates to the madwifi trunk breaking compatibility with the AR5008/AR5416 chipset, and not because of Ubuntu/Mint Hardy Heron. And yes, my wireless works fine under Windows XP.

I've noticed in the madwifi tickets that AR5008/AR5416 wireless was functioning and had been broken in the past due to updates but the regressions were fixed. Also, in my previous install on 2008.06.22, my D-Link DWA-552 was working with wireless...

Quick way to start Xen virtual machines on bootup

Posted 08-01-2008 at 11:25 PM by hardwyrd

Just a quick tip.

Youíre using SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 and you are using virtualization with Xen with a couple of virtual machines (DomU) and you are quite happy with how everything turned out. SLES10 is running ok, Xen works fine, DomUís are healthy and serving as they should. Then again, you need to do a maintenance task and will need to reboot your machine. Then suddenly you found out that you need to manually start all your virtual machines manually! ACK!
