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.

revised What is the difference between ./ and sh to run a script?
ha ha, 7 edits and not one person noticed the word "fun" instead of "run". Also fixed a grammar error.

@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

comment Why can't Ubuntu access my Raspberry Pi across LAN?
@MeerBorg I'm already a user there, and I actually considered asking this there, BUT Ubuntu is the only one having issues connecting. If I couldn't connect via any method, I'd suspect an issue with the Pi itself, but since Ubuntu is the odd one out here, I made the decision to ask it on this site.

HTTP(S) connections are also not available locally, BUT I noticed that Ubuntu can connect to my external IP.

Hey... another good DNS provider is Google's DNS - they don't screw up nxdomain like OpenDNS does. Primary server is 8.8.8.8 secondary 8.8.4.4.
