  1. It works, you just have to scan three times before it auto (once you set it to do so) connect. Open a terminal and do the following: sudo iwlist wlan0 scan press the wifi button repeat till you get entries (usually the third try) By this time you'd start to see entries in your Network Manager and you can go on your marry way. Why you have to do this, idk, but I know this works for me. And the new Ubuntu has got the led for the wifi switch to work, so I'm loving it!
  2. Where are you from

  3. Thanks for the links, looks like I have reading ahead of me! A lot of this just went right over my head lol.
  4. I made a list of the files commonly said to use when setting up cygwin; though the "possible" section is just what I think can be useful for building software, but not absolutely necessary. I'm really looking for stuff to put into "appeneded" that would help me atleast get started building software from CLI/source. If you have any suggestions, please add! # default coreutils binutils findutils diffutils bash bzip2 tar perl python # appended make patchutils gcc gcc-mingw zip unzip # possible imagemagick nano vim cvs git Qt (idk the exact package) libX11-devel xorg-server ncureses libncurses-devel ncursesw libncursesw-devel subversion
  5. So VLANS instead of subnetting? The school does have roughly 1560+ computers (assuming all classes rooms had around 15 computers and a few rooms with 30). Maybe grouping all the way down to the classroom level isn't the best, but would grouping the whole building better? Any good places to learn TCP/IP? I read a lot of that subject on wikipedia, but I either forgot most of it or it was ridiculous figuring out what the hell it was saying (i.e. subnet calculations)!
  6. I work as a Tech Support student for a high-school and I was curious if splitting the network down into little subnets would help the school's performance and manageability. The school is setup up as so: Whole School | | - 100's - 1 - ... - 24 | - 200's - 1 - ... - 24 | - 300's - 1 - ... - 24 | - 400's - 1 - ... - 24 | - 500's - 1 - ... - 24 | - 600's - 1 - ... - 24 | - B's - 1 - ... - 24 | - Faculty - 1 - ... - 24 Where the "<something>'s" is the buildings and the "1..24" (not always exactly this many, but for brevity's sake) is the rooms. Would it do anything to break it down so individual rooms get a subnet or would it be better so that the whole building gets it's own subnet? I don't fully understand subnetting or TCP/IP, but I heard a talk where this network admin (I can't remember the show I heard it from or what his job title was) broke his business's network down and let only the PR people use Facebook instead of letting the entire network use Facebook. I also read that subnet reduces packet collisions.
  7. Cool solutions guys. I'll have to look into them. Thanks!
  8. I'm posting this in hopes that somebody knows how to make a script that can correctly read and display rss, atom, and opml files as I'm pretty erked at the fact that Thunderbird and GreatNews nolonger read the opml file I have (GreatNews says that it can't accept the file because there is a semi-colon in one of the entries -- Hak5 forums rss url to be exact -- where there really isn't one!). The reason I say php script is that it's possibly the fastest way to get this done without having to create a GUI, but rather just spacing for the WebUI. Now I don't know how to program in php or even if this idea is possible, but I thought it worthy of just being out there for anybody to possible stem off of *shrugs*.
  9. You can install Sandboxie Portable (mostly portable I think) and just carry around the sandbox with you. It's said to help with trailware, delete sandbox after trail is up. Be warned, Sandboxie is nag-ware and only comes with one sandbox for free users. Uniextract works awesome for about 90% of applications. Just use the app to extract from the installer and move the files around where they seem fit (it's kinda obvious). http://www.portablefreeware.com/ awesome site for how-to's and links to downloads. Lots of users comment on the applications so you can see what's up with the software before you download it.
  10. Do I need 'mercurial libasound2-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev libnotify-dev libxt-dev libiw-dev mesa-common-dev autoconf2.13' for cygwin to work? I pulled this off mozilla's instructions for building firefox on ubuntu. This is gnash's './configure', it's quite long!

  11.

Stop. I understand that './configure' needs to work before I move onto make, but it's the same error that I get for gnash. I'll post the results of gnash next.
  12. I've been messing around with cygwin recently, but haven't gotten it to install anything. I've done research, but they always talk about stuff you don't really need quite yet. I'd like to install gnash so I can play swf files then later install firefox with gnash support. The problem I have is that after the initial './configure' the make command doesn't do anything! So I propose that we have a thread that might solve a lot of problems users like myself have. From my searching I found out that I need make, gcc, g++, and xorg. I'll post the script I use to start cygwin. It's not the default and it doesn't have the stuff you see in the other scripts on the internet as I couldn't find out what they did (again, the documentation didn't say anything about it or how to use some of it), but it works! You find out that '/cygdrive' shows windows drives and '/proc/registry[32 or 64]' shows the registry to their respective version. If you have anything to add please do! P.S. The script I mentioned above: @echo off set "here=%~dp0" set "path=%here%\bin;%here%\usr\X11R6\bin;%path%" :: interactive login bash --login -i
  13. Does anybody know how to combine the three discs that you have to install? I'd like to make it just one disc so I can easily install without replacing the discs every time. I've attempted it, but I can't mount the iso for some reason. Maybe it has to do with the fact I did: # cat <folder>/*.* diablo2.iso The mount command I use is: # mount -o loop -t iso9660 diablo2.iso /mnt/ For the cds, I just copied them to my HDD. Then combined into one folder, taking out what I don't need like the .ico, autorun.inf, and the manual. I also did some basic searching which resulted in nothing on my topic (mostly in-game cheats).
  14. I got it! It required a "%%~zg", notice the double %% instead of the %~zg (or a numeric value). Credit goes to farhankazi for providing the working script. I just modded it and compared to my script to find out the %%~zg and that the shift was redundant! http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programmin...Q_22944345.html
