I was trying to get Songbird to recognise my ipod and it wouldn't because the ipod was automounted under /media. I put the UUID of the iPod_Control partition in my fstab. I used blkid to get the UUID of that partition.

After installing SRSS we tried to setup a gnome kiosk session. There were no prototypes for this installed. After scouring the net we only found an example of something that didn't work :-(.

We use a retired netapp as a backup with snapmirror. We don't have support on the device anymore and one of the disks failed. I took the drive out and discovered it was a SEAGATE ST3146807FC. I found this site that said it was possible to flash the firmware on a generic drive for use in a network appliance.

The latest vlc seems to compile fine with only a few modest dependencies. Using qt4 instead of wxGTK helps out a lot. I started a fresh rpm this time and didn't build upon the 0.8.6 spec. You'll need a fairly recent ffmpeg compiled with --enable-swscale.

I prefer a dark theme. I've lived with thunderbird doing a bad job of that for a while. I finally decided to fix it. I found this page which had what I wanted.

It seems like the interface for creating modules has changed a bit, and udev is the way to go. Here is a short, quick and dirty module that creates /dev/pi with anonymous major and minor using udev.

I followed the simple guide in the forum but was still unable to use my keys. Turns out my keys were DSA, and FreeSSHD only seems to know about RSA keys. I generated some RSA keys and everything was fine.

Trying to use sshfs to mount in an nfs mounted home directory and we were getting this error: fusermount: failed to open mountpoint for reading: Permission denied It must have something to do with userid's, the solution was to make the mountpoint world readable and executable. The containing home directory is not world readable anyway... Hope that helps someone. PS - To umount the sshfs mounted filesystem, use fusermount -u

I'm having trouble resuming on my T60p. With gnome-power-manager if I sleep and resume within 5minutes everything is ok. If I sleep (close the lid) and wait more than 5 minutes the machine never comes back, the video remains black but otherwise it appears to be running, not crashed.

We tried dual booting my N810Wimax but the default initfs kept crashing with the error: wimax init Also, you couldn't use the direction pad to select any options in the menu. Thankfully my friend Brian was able to fix the problem. linuxrc needed a few hacks and the applications fb_update_mode and evkey needed to be added to /usr/bin

Bootmenu needed to be patched to correctly set the memory card location. The mmc cards change numbers during boot, which can be confusing.

Here are the patched files:
