Just signed up so saying hi to the world - or at least those that are here anyways :o)
Once I came to have more ambitious career goals, however, I knew that San Francisco was not the best place to live as far as I was concerned. I consulted a few best place to live lists in magazines, but I couldn't exactly find what I was looking for.
The concept of career planning is no simple one to say the very least. Although you've probably heard it before, I will reiterate the notion that selecting the right career field can be irksome and stressful. Everyone on this planet wants to choose a job that they're going to enjoy, or at least partially enjoy. This is why career planning is so essential.
I have installed OpenSolaris on my Core2 Duo E4600 with 1gb of RAM.
What i don't understand, why is it considerably slower in gui, than linux running on the same configuration?
Solaris runs gnome as the default WM, and linux - kde 4.2 from debian-unstable.
So I wanted to play poker the other day and wasnt sure where to go and find people to play with
One day my sibling asked me to help him buy a laptop. So, my brain immediately worked to find one that was compatible with free software. I remembered that Ali Gunduz has ever posted in gNewSense-user mailing list that Asus EEE PC 701 and 900 are compatible with free software except for its BIOS (http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/gnewsense-users/2008-12/msg00122.html). But, my sibling insisted to get a higher one: Asus EEE PC 1000HE. Ali Gunduz mentioned in the post that higher EEE PC model might not be equipped with a wireless device that was compatible with free software. So, I went to take a look and it turned out that ASUS EEE PC 1000HE is equipped with Atheros wireless card, which is free software compatible. Now let me give a review on this laptop.
Ever since the time I started to fiddle with GNU/Linux Ubuntu 8.04 in October 2008 at http://infi-nity.com, I had been wondering as to how I could reduce the opacity of the windows.
One day I had to decide which code versioning system should be used. After reading some articles found via Google, generally I had to pick either one that employs centralized or decentralized repository. At that time, I picked one that employs a centralized repository because I had not understood well how a decentralized repository could benefit us. Now I think I have got the feeling on how useful a decentralized repository is.
"Not all distributions have staff, some have "wheel" instead."
What does this mean?
I am looking the source for U-boot-v2 bootloader for IMX27ADS target.
Can anybody help regarding this to start with??
When I type in "vlc" on terminal in Mandriva 2009 Free, I get a message that it cannot be played and that there's some segmentation fault.
It suggests me to try "cvlc".And it works.
What is Segmentation Fault?
One day when I tried another SIM card with the Huawei E220 modem that I told about in http://kerneltrap.org/node/17017, I got the following error message on bearerbox.log:
2009-04-11 08:19:59   DEBUG: AT2[eus_smsc]: --> AT+IFC=2,2^M 2009-04-11 08:20:00   DEBUG: AT2[eus_smsc]: <-- +CME ERROR: SIM failure 2009-04-11 08:20:00   ERROR: AT2[eus_smsc]: Generic error: +CME ERROR: SIM failure 2009-04-11 08:20:00   INFO: AT2[eus_smsc]: cannot enable hardware handshake
The other day when I was fiddling with JobScheduler (http://jobscheduler.sourceforge.net), I realized that my development machine's system clock lagged by about 8 seconds behind that of the server machine that hosted the JobScheduler because whenever I looked at my local machine's clock to setup a job to run at the next 10 seconds, the JobScheduler in the server machine failed to run the job due to expiration of the schedule (the JobScheduler used the server machine's system clock, of course). I had both machines running the same GNU/Linux distribution, which was Ubuntu 8.04 Desktop, and they were synchronized to ntp.ubuntu.com. But, upon encountering the lagging problem, I decided to synchronize my development machine's system clock to that of the server machine. However, I wanted the server machine to synchronize to ntp.ubuntu.com. It turned out that implementing such an idea was not easy.
One day after I had successfully set up a subversion mirror and kept it in sync with svnsync through svn+ssh protocol as described here: http://blog.codefront.net/2007/03/31/setting-up-svnsync-ed-mirrored-svn-..., I would like to have the sync happen automatically everytime there was a commit. Oh, the blog didn't mention anything about svn+ssh protocol, but it was easily done following the subversion manual itself. So, I coded post-commit and post-revprop-change hooks as described here: http://journal.paul.querna.org/articles/2006/09/14/using-svnsync. However, as Chu Yeow mentioned in his blog that he settled with cron to do the sync because the hooks method didn't work, it also didn't work for me. Both machines were using GNU/Linux Ubuntu 8.04 Desktop.
