Einmalnummer.de dead.

Thecus N2100: Testing kernels

Posted by coldtobi | 1 Jul, 2009, 23:40

Some time ago, I wrote how to test a kernel on the Thecus (here).

As I did not update the kernel for some time, I decided  to update to 2.6.30. As usual, I wanted to try it before flasing it permanently. To enforce this, I do not have the package "flash-kernel" installed. But unfortunatly, this time the testing method did not work or the kernel did not boot...

To help Windows understanding, that your local samba server does not support a printer, add to your smb.conf in the [global] section

A Recent Eclipse On Debian

Posted by coldtobi | 9 May, 2009, 13:58

Eclipse is WAY outdated on debian. Even the unstable release ships a basically unmodified version since 3 years.

So today I decided to remove the ancient version -- which did not start anyway -- and try the new nice release from eclipse.org:
