Time Event
VMware, Mandrake, and 2.6, oh my!
For anyone who cares, the newly released version 4.5 of VMware installs and runs perfectly on Mandrake 10 with kernel package 2.6.3-7mdk. I'm sure there are people out there who can't sleep because they are so worried about that :-)
Linux compatable MP3 player recommendations?
Anyone have an MP3 player you can mount under linux and copy files without any proprietary software? I'm looking for one preferebly with an SD card slot and small enough I can wear around my neck.


Current Mood: energetic
hey all
So, I don't think I've ever posted on here, but I've been reading this community for a while now. Anywho, I'm primarily a gentoo user and have been ever since my windows install totally borked itself almost a year ago. I love it. :) I recently stumbled upon a very awesome piece of software called BashBurn that is very easy to configure and use. I had been looking for an easy way to burn audio cds, but didn't find anything good until I ran accross bashburn... Check it out, and comment on it if you so desire. :) I don't really have any questions, but I thought I'd share this program with you guys if you didn't already know of it.

later... ;)

Current Mood: geeky
Sort of a newbie question...

I'm running suse 8.2.

I've just installed LM sensors, and the following was kicked out for me to do:

WARNING! If you have some things built into your kernel, the
below list will contain too many modules. Skip the appropriate ones!
To load everything that is needed, add this to some /etc/rc* file:

#----cut here----
# I2C adapter drivers
modprobe i2c-viapro
modprobe i2c-isa
# I2C chip drivers
modprobe w83781d
modprobe via686a
#----cut here----

I have no idea what file I'm supposed to insert these commands to... I do know that if I just run them as root, I can get the sensors to work, but if I reboot, they don't.

Here are the options:

patrick@boyle > ls /etc/rc*
/etc/rc.d.README /etc/rc.status


there exists a file called: lm_sensors, but it was created later in this output:

Do you want to generate /etc/sysconfig/lm_sensors? (YES/no): YES
Copy /usr/share/doc/packages/sensors/prog/init/lm_sensors.init
to /etc/init.d/lm_sensors for initialization at boot time.

these two files are identical.

any thoughts?
