hm, i thought that it is absolutely not important what kind of system u have, because it is router :D If you just want to access the internet through it and use it with the standard firmware from the manufacturer, then you are correct. We posted about specifically buying the L model in regards to l...

Re: How do people manage software compiled by himself?

Thanks for the tip. No problem. :) I guess I should finish my post by saying that I then symbolically link the newly installed app's actual binary to an entry in /opt/sfw/bin which is in my path. That way I'm not adding a new directory to my path every time I install a new app in /opt/sfw/name_of_a...

mzilikazi took the words right out of my mouth...or fingers, rather. :P

And if you get the Linksys WRT model that ends in an 'L', it's guaranteed to work with DD-WRT or Tomato, as the L stands for Linux! :D

Re: How do people manage software compiled by himself?

Also, /opt, which is designed for just such installs. So if you want to see what is installed and where it is put you could build/install in /opt. This is what I do. Specifically, I install apps to /opt/sfw/name_of_app/version_number because that allows me to install another version for testing or ...

Does anyone regularly use the ncurses interface to aptitude? When I first started using aptitude, I thought I'd use it almost exclusively, but never did. I guess I just never took the time to learn it when 'aptitude update/upgrade' and 'aptitude install <package>' from the cli took care of 99.9% of ...

I've heard people championing screen as a 'must have' application. Maybe I just haven't stuck with it long enough to see the value, or haven't had it save my rear when a remote session disconnects unexpectedly, but I just can't seem to get into the habit of using it. I regularly remote into other ma...

So...maybe I'm missing something, but where does the 'Sex' part come into the 5s+ equation? :?

Funny...I always thought that ATI was the big stick-in-the-mud regarding drivers and getting all the bells and whistles on their cards to work.

I love the aesthetics of the hardware, especially the laptops, but haven't found anything about OS X that is worth paying for.

Basically, I'd buy one just for the hardware, wipe it and load Linux. :mrgreen:

Palm Centro with Sprint service. It's my first smartphone, and is light-years above and beyond the $49 bottom-of-the-barrel phones I'd been using before it.

You can edit the main rkhunter config file (I know it's somewhere in /etc, but I don't remember the complete path) and specify the hidden directories and/or files that you want it to ignore. This should stop the emails.

I use gmail, google calendar, google maps, and searching. I don't use google docs but that's more of a lack-of-functionality issue rather than a trust issue.

I'd like to try OS X for a few months to see what it's really like. Sure, I've messed around with it for a few minutes while passing through the Apple store in the mall, but never for an extended period of time.
