Ipaper – Scribd

Ever thought how good it would have been if you were able to portray your documents in a much appealing format rather than the normal linked form? If you could portray a totally different way of representing your documents? I was scouting for something on those lines when I chanced up on this site. Looked…

OpenSolaris Installation

Replied to

I’d ordered the Solaris 10 DVD from a third party agent a few days back. It did avoid the hassle of downloading the code from the website and burning it on to a ROM and the service by Rainbow Computech was pretty good. I got the DVD delivered to my home in three days with…

Who says Wine ain’t smooth!!!

Just installed WIne on Ubuntu a few minutes back. Installed a couple of other windows based softwares too! Now they really work 🙂 . Haggard installations are now things of the past. Probably it’s time I move over to something more challenging.

Gutsy Gibbon 7.1O – Ubuntu

Finally, Installed Gutsy on my system today! :-)After failed attempts to install it last weekend, I was a bit apprehensive this time. But today, two minutes into the install I realized where I was faltering. I’d created four partitions on my Hard disk of 30 Gigs each for Windows. Fiesty was running on the remaining…

Transition…

Two weeks and counting! 🙂 I’ve got Ubuntu and Microsoft Xp installed on my system with dual boot configured. Still I haven’t logged into Windows for two weeks! The moment I’m in front of my desktop once I’m back from office, It’s Grub> modprobe> Ubuntu. I care a damn about windows now. Last year connectivity…

Ubuntu: BSNL Broadband Connection

Holla… My first post typed in from Ubuntu with it hooked to the net!!! Just managed to configure the Broadband connection in Ubuntu!! Am on cloud nine, given the fact that I’d been struggling in vain for the past few months to get a few Linux flavours hooked on to the net. Believe me, There…

Fedora 7

The OSS and Red Hat community have launched their latest OS. Parting from their age old nomenclature, they now prefer to call it Fedora 7 and not Fedora Core 7. It’s available for download here. For those of you people with access to snail paced connectivity to the internet, there’s a provision to request for…

Feisty Fawn – Ubuntu 7.04

I’ve tried installing almost all flavours of Linux on my old system. Starting from Red Hat and going all the way till Ubuntu. Each installation came along with its appended troubles, thanks to my ignorance then. One main constriction I had was the hardware configuration of my machine. It was a pentium celeron running on…

Linux

I’ve upgraded my old system (the 440 Lx) to a brand new Core2Duo ! If you’ve read a few of my previous posts you’d definitely have come across my ventures with Linux on my old system. I’ve been and I still am a hard core fan of Linux for the past three years and I’ve…

The 440LX is no more!

My first off the system post from a friends machine. My dear system buckled down totally today and looking at the symptoms there’s every reason for me to believe it has breathed it’s last! 🙁 The final moments it did throb to the core and when it missed the beat hell went loose. Moments before…

GParted

A few days back I was trying to edit my login screen in windows. Things really didn’t work out the way I wanted it to and the system was left in an unstable state.I always have a stripped down Win98 installed to have a quick Xp re-installation in case things don’t work out fine. I…

Harnessing the power of the 440LX

Well, If you are still wondering what the 440LX is all about…it’s the chipset that my PC has been thriving on for the past nine years : -)  , and is still kicking on. Taking into consideration the burden that I have put on it for the past two years in terms of incessant formatting…
