Our cat Rubeo was desexed today ;) He is sleeping all day long :)

latest stable version of the Linux kernel is: 2.6.0

Thursday, December 18th, 2003

Jepp – 2.6.0 stable is available. I installed it on my laptop, seems to work at least as fine as 2.6.0-test11 ;) – I will check out some more details (special-keys, cdrom-burning,…) in my christmas-holidays.

The OpenSource-Lab @ TU Graz where I am going to work (maybe) is mentioned in Webstandard (german only – sorry).

linux 2.6.0-test11

I activated linux-2.6.0-test11 on my laptop. It runs quite fast and stable, together with cpudyn Power-Management works much better than with 2.4-kernels.

Debian project machines been compromised

Wednesday, November 26th, 2003

Argl – Debian project machines been compromised. I really like Debian (at least it sucks less than other distributions) but the reaction of debian’s members sucks that much. Only a small notice on bottom of their main webpage, only some generell information on some debian-mailinglists and so on… Argl!

bankaustria / creditanstalt

Sunday, November 23rd, 2003

Ok, BA/CA sucks that much (check out old rant ;)) – I desided to create an account at P.S.K..

I am running QNX at work. I wanted to install QNX at home, so let’s set up a gateway. Anytime I have traffic on eth1 at the gateway the kernel freezes – grml. No network on the old computer, a fast try running QNX inside VMWare was not successfull (ok, I found another QNX-ISO designed […]

Thomas Winkler found out that there exists a cisco-vpn-client which should work with linux 2.6.0-kernels. I test it on my laptop and – it works! So I also activate the 2.6.0-test9 also on my workstation/server – but my mouse doesn’t work then as it should – damn! $ uname -a Linux tweety 2.6.0-test9 #3 Sun […]

Our cat Rubeo had something like an epileptic, algospasm attack. Some more details are available on my Rubeo-Webpage (german only, sorry).

Argl, on my account statement are some charges of 11 cents for “fremde PSK-Gebühr” (my girlfriend transfered money to my account). I went to BA/CA a week ago and tried to get more details about the fee of 11 cents. The chief promised me to call me if she has some more details about it…. […]

Argl, I have tried several kernels and settings with hdparm because my computer could not drive at any mode faster than udma2. Accessing the more detailed BIOS-Settings via Ctrl+F1 (Gigabyte 8KNXP-Board) and setting modes manually (not cable-select) fixed the problem. grml…. grml:/home/mika# hdparm -i /dev/hda /dev/hdb /dev/hdc /dev/hdd | grep udma UDMA modes: udma0 udma1 […]

Marianne and me took our cat called Rubeo to the veterinarian. I was afraid of some troubles with Rubeo but he didn’t cause any disasters ;) Rubeo has fleas and tapeworms and so he got some medicine. More details on Rubeo are available online: (only in german – sorry).

win2k3 vs. apache

Tuesday, November 4th, 2003

Win2k3 sucks that much (ok, I don’t tell news), but at least netcraft’s web-server-survey shows that not all people are stupid enough to use IIS as a webserver.


Tuesday, November 4th, 2003

I have to set up a firewall (bridged network – transparent firewall). I am using a Debian-based distribution from Austria (no, not where the kangaroos live ;)) called Gibraltar. Main documentation can be found in the mailinglist-archiv, Rene Mayrhofer from Gibraltar writes really nice and helpfull stuff. Gibraltar is really a great piece of Software! […]

Someone in the TU-Graz-Newsgroups mentioned isync, a tool for synchronizing a remote IMAP mailbox with a local maildir-style mailbox. I should check this out because my mailsetup is IMAP and maildir ;).
