WTF is what the fuck?

September 15, 2007 – 10:09 pm by Adnan Hodzic


I haven't posted anything in 20 days (only, I really though ages passed ...)I was kind of in a ... havoc; So in those 20 days, right I just realized that I just might have interesting life ... I mean, well first after years of Slackware, I think I definitely switched to Debian. That has been put into drafts, I'm writing about it, also I switched from glasses to lenses, that is also one nice draft over there, (see the pattern? Debian, lenses ... getting bling bling. Yes, I am growing a vagina)Oh yes, almost forgot, Adnan Hodzic, almost killed his alter ego AbsintheSyringe, that bastard. That was an interesting trip, I guess I could write about that too, for most part, when was the last time you tried moving your inbox from few mb to maybe few gb's? Graphical tools, such as Thunderbird (IceDove), Kmail, definitely fail in backing ...

Slackware 12.0 + ipw3945

August 5, 2007 – 4:14 pm by Adnan Hodzic


I still see these questions being asked, so let's solve it once for all. Mount Slackware 12 dvd, go to /extras, copy intel-wlan-ipw3945 somewhere on your disk. Or if you don't have Slackware 12 dvd, just get it off the web. ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware-12.0/extra/intel-wlan-ipw3945 Version of kernel of this and that, it doesn't matter, for example I did this on 2.6.22.1 Remove ieee80211. If not, just remove while installing/upgrading new ieee80211 1) Install the ieee80211 subsystem #tar zxvf ieee and the -1.2.17.tar.gz #cd ieee80211-1.2.17 #make #make install 2) Install kernel modules #tar zxvf ipw3945-1.2.1.tar.gz #cd ipw3945-1.2.1 #make #make install #depmod 3) Copy the firmware to the right place #tar xzvf ipw3945-ucode-1.14.2.tgz #cd ipw3945-ucode-1.14.2 #cp ipw3945.ucode /lib/firmware d) Compile the daemon #tar xzvf ipw3945d-1.7.22.tgz #cd ipw3945d-1.7.22 If you have a x86 processor #cd x86 (else cd x86_64) #cp ipw3945d /sbin Now make sure the ieee80211 the ipw3945 modules are loaded by the kernel. There is an utility in the ipw3945-1.2.1 directory called 'load' that will do just that, but it also can be (and should be) accomplished by #modprobe ...

Mein teil of free Open Solaris 10

July 31, 2007 – 3:21 pm by Adnan Hodzic


I was the first in our LUG to find out about Free Solaris DVD, I posted something along the line: "Open Solaris looking up on Ubuntu - Short registration, and unbelieveable but DVD's should arrive in 10 work days time period. You'll get 10CD's per "order" and OS is x86-86/SPARC compliant. " I posted that on "14.01.2007 23:11:16" Today is 31.07.2007, almost 8months after that post, I never got my Solaris. Nothing. Today my cuzin who got months ago, gave it to me, so after almost 8months in the end I got my hands on it. I tried this on x86 notebook. root@havok:~# cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep -i model model : 14 model name : Genuine Intel(R) CPU T2400 @ 1.83GHz model ...

Hunting Slackware 12.0 bugs :)

July 19, 2007 – 5:09 pm by Adnan Hodzic


I won't talk too much, few days ago I just bumped into this pretty major bug. Submitted the bug to both Volkerding and xorg team. Here's what's up. "Adnan Hodzic" to "Patrick" (Jul 11) I'm pretty sure you want to be aware of this one. Slackware + 855GM + Xorg 7.2 Enjoy :) Bug: 11544 https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11544 ############################## ###################################### This problem is on Slackware 12.0 (I'll be letting Volkerding about this bug too) xorg 7.2.0, everything out of box, "standard" Intel driver. 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82852/855GM Integrated Graphics Device (rev 01) 00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation 82852/855GM Integrated Graphics Device (rev 01) What's the problem? After you "xorgconfig" your right configuration, (this will happen without even doing this) and when you enable "DRI" in xorg.conf so I can get 3D acceleration, to get my "glx | grep render" to say my exact card name ... now when I got my 3D acceleration, when I played any video, complete X crash, to ...

WD … you bastards >_<

Ok, I wanted this disc for a very long time, until yesterday I just snapped and went to get it finally. It was Saturday, stores on Saturday work till 2, I got it around 1:55. Wow, it's so cool and small and all that. Disc still in "casing" First thing I say is that cord ... is kinda, well not kinda it's short. So I plug it in and what do I get? Soft clicking sounds which was weird ... wait ... wait some more ... time to get pissed. dmesg doesn't say anything new, well try this and that, pretty much what this meant is that hdd is plain dead. That would all be great, return it, I got receipt and all, but I heard guy saying something like "yea we got one more left", and I got it 1:55 so yea ... thing was closed. So I'll unleash my fury on them tomorrow ...
