I'm a geek who loves Linux. I do my best to help other Linux users, but oftentimes, I'm the one who needs help.

My personal favorite software:

  • Chromium
  • VLC
  • TrueCrypt
  • 7-Zip (or p7zip)

I've recently switched from Ubuntu to Arch Linux, and I'm absolutely loving it. I really appreciate the control it offers over your system - instead of trying to stop a user from installing software just because it doesn't have the "correct" license, it lets you decide what software you do or don't want on your system. (It's yours, after all.)

comment Ethernet not detected whatsoever
Running mii-tool while 8139cp was still loaded said it couldn't find interface eth0, but after loading 8139too running mii-tool exited with no output (and no effect.) I've already tried ifup/downing the enterface, and ifup eth0 still doesn't exit cleanly while running 8139too. However, even though the command never exited, I can still close the terminal. mii-tool only exits cleanly after ifup-ing eth0 while running 8139too. So I have no ideas. :/

@grimpitch rmod was an invalid command, but sudo modprobe -r 8139too seemed to work. Adding the module 8139cp didn't fix it, though - the network tray icon now says "no network devices available", and running ifdown and ifup doesn't work - ifup says "could not configure hardware" or something like that.

comment Can't mount SD-cards in ubuntu, in windows on same machine works fine
Okay, try this: Use Windows to back up all the files, then use Gparted to format the card: sudo apt-get install gparted, then open your SD Card in GParted (it's probably going to be /dev/sdb,) go to Device>Create Partition Table, make an msdos table, then create a new fat32 partition in all the free space. Whatever utility formatted the card in the first place (e.g., the Manufacturer, your Camera, You, etc.,) messed up the partition table. Fortunately, GParted is powerful enough to read+format any drive, no matter how corrupted it is (barring physical damage, of course... ;)

If you're considering connecting, just to test my "solution", don't.

comment Wireless is unusably unstable with my D-Link DWA-160 Wi-Fi adapter!
Uugh, when this Wi-Fi adapter either dies or gets replaced, I'm going to dig it a deep grave.. near the septic tank. Then I will dance on its grave.

@AndrejsCainikovs pastebin.com/NmKenVpD Line 18 makes mt think that my firewall isn't the issue, though.

comment Firefox “clone” for Ubuntu
@cipricus Umm, I use both Firefox Nightly and the "normal" build side-by-side, and I can tell you, as a fact, that, unless you've intentionally merged the config directories, they're going to have separate profiles. If you run ls ~.mozilla, you'll see that firefox and firefox-trunk are different directories.

@AndrejsCainikovs I'll be very happy to oblige with any logfiles needed. Just tell me what you need, and I'll Pastebin it and post it here. As of now, the output of ssh -vvv pi@192.168.2.128 is exactly as appears here: pastebin.com/Nc1W8Mja
