D-Link Karte...

unter Mandrake 10: SourceForge.net: Open Discussion: "Good news..It works.

All you have to do is to put the precompiled module from /3rdparty/acx100 to ../drviers/net directory.

Then type in a console all the things described in acx100 Craig HowTo.

What is annoying is that Mandrake 10 Comunity isn't checking the dependencies between modules at boot so i had to type depmod -a everytime."

Java Technology and the Mission to Mars

Auf der Sun Website gibt's den Artikel hier: Java Technology and the Mission to Mars: "Q:How does the public version of the Maestro application work?

A: If you go to the Maestro website (http://mars.telascience.org), You will find that they've got two sets of downloads. One is the Maestro application itself, and the other is a first teaser set of data from Mars. There are different versions for different platforms. There's one for Solaris, a version for Linux, there's a version for Windows and more. The fact that they've got all those versions just shows you how portable Java is, how cross-platform it is. It's exactly the same program in all of those, they are just packaged differently.

So when you download the first set of data. There's a script that walks you through looking at some of the data. Using the 3-D model they have there, and using your mouse, you can actually manipulate the 3-D model and you can get a view as if you're standing off to the side of the landing looking back at it. You can actually wander around the landing site. You can see the rocks. You can see one of the places where one of the air bags didn't deflate completely. All of this 3-D, walk-through visualization is using standard Java APIs like Java 3-D API, Java Advanced Imaging API, Java networking APIs and the user interface APIs.

Using the Maestro version they are distributing, not only do you see a 3-D model of the terrain, you see a 3-D model of the Rover. You can actually drive the Rover on this simulated terrain. It has this 'video game' aspect to it. Except that you're actually driving it on a terrain model that's real. It's real Mars data that's constructing this terrain. It's not like playing Dune, where you're going through this maze that's completely fictitious."

Hmmm... Das sollte man sich wohl mal angucken...

Mandrakelinux 10.0 Community and urpmi...

Slashdot | Mandrakelinux 10.0 Community is Available: "If you have broadband, one of the first things you should do with mandrake is remove the cd's as package sources (in the gui, just to to packaging->manage media, or something like that, and delete the cd sources) and follow the directions at http://urpmi.org/easyurpmi/index.php to add ftp mirrors. Then you can install programs on the command line (as root) by saying 'urpmi package.' For instance, urpmi gaim will install gaim. 'urpmi -y blah' searches. 'urpme package' uninstalls. 'urpmi --auto-select' updates everything. The gui tools can do all this too."
Hmmmm.... :)

Rosetta Stone for Unix

Rosetta Stone for Unix: "A Sysadmin's Unixersal Translator (ROSETTA STONE) or What do they call that in this world?"
Eine Tabelle, in der diverse Tasks und die zugehörigen Befehle/Dienstprogramme der verschiedensten Unices aufgeführt sind, frei nach dem Motto: "Das will ich machen, dieses System habe ich -- und wie geht das nun?"
