  1. Installing the nVIDIA Video Driver the Hard Way

    by , 18-Jun-2011 at 12:03 (James' openSUSE Bash Scripting (and other things) Blog - Your Comments are Welcome!)
    If you have an nVIDIA video card, do you have 3D support enabled? If you look into the "My Computer" icon, what does the display info say there? Here is a look at mine:

    Code:
                Display Info
    
       Vendor:  nVidia Corporation
        Model:  GK104 [GeForce GTX 660 Ti]
    2D driver:  nvidia
    3D driver:  NVIDIA 331.20
    I always install the nVIDIA driver the Hard Way, which is not very hard using the most recent driver and I always run the ...

  2. Switch between English (US) and Thai Keyboard in LXDE

    by , 26-Jun-2011 at 16:23 (oldcpu's meandering thoughts on Computers, GNU/Linux and openSUSE)
    I installed 32-bit openSUSE-11.4 LXDE desktop, with Tumbleweed, on an old laptop computer, that my wife uses a lot. My wife, being a Thai national, wanted to switch between English and Thai keyboards, so I set out to implement this in LXDE.

    This is an old laptop (Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo 7400M with an Intel Pentium M 1400 Mhz CPU), too slow for Windows7 and Windows XP is no longer supported. So GNU/Linux is the only remaining Operating System option for continued support. I chose LXDE ...

  3. Purchase considerations for a new netbook

    by , 24-Jul-2011 at 01:38 (oldcpu's meandering thoughts on Computers, GNU/Linux and openSUSE)
    My wife is looking at purchasing a new netbook, and we have spent the past couple of days looking at new netbooks. Her selecting the model of netbooks she wants to examine, and me checking for GNU/Linux compatibility BEFORE the purchase. She still has not purchased one, but its possible she will do so before end of this weekend (23/24-July)

    GNU/Linux compatibility references:

    For GNU/Linux compatibility I normally check here:

  4. Berkeley Packet Filter Just in Time compiler and The Linux Kernel 3.0

    by , 06-Aug-2011 at 20:10 (James' openSUSE Bash Scripting (and other things) Blog - Your Comments are Welcome!)
    I noticed a new addition to the Linux Kernel 3.0 which was called the "Berkeley Packet Filter Just in Time compiler". This seemed intriguing to me though I admit to not knowing how to make use of it. The H Open link on the subject is as follows:

    Kernel Log: Coming in 3.0 (Part 1) - Networking - The H Open Source: News and Features

    Just in time

    The netfilter code now includes a "Berkeley Packet Filter Just-in-Time Compiler" for x86-64 systems.

  5. new 64-bit openSUSE-11.4 KDE installation on my main PC (Core i7-920)

    by , 30-Sep-2011 at 15:17 (oldcpu's meandering thoughts on Computers, GNU/Linux and openSUSE)
    7-months after 11.4 is released and only then do I install 11.4 ? Yes - I'm conservative. Very conservative ! And after some hours I have to say it runs great !

    Why wait so long ? I like stability. All the apps I want are now packaged (and have been packaged and running for some time, and many debugged/improved over that time). And finally this was a long weekend where I don't have other commitments (which does not happen all that often). An ideal time for an openSUSE install. ...
