Linux Support / Re: network/interfaces file
November 08, 2013, 10:48:33 PM
Thankyee.   nothing about eth0 ?
I had something, and changed it to:    auto eth0

Does this look good to change the MAC address. I tried the first temp one but it didn't connect at all:

Change your MAC address in Linux (Ubuntu)

Relevant to your use, you can either choose to make it a permanent addition or a temporary addition. Lets take an example of changing the MAC address of interface eth0 to 11:22:33:44:44:66
Temporary Addition

$ sudo ifconfig eth0 down

$ sudo ifconfig eth0 hw ether 11:22:33:44:55:66

$ sudo ifconfig eth0 up
Permanent Addition

1. Open /etc/network/interfaces ,

    $ sudo vim /etc/network/interfaces

2. Add an extra line to specify the new MAC

    auto eth0

    iface eth0 inet dhcp

    hwaddress ether 01:02:03:04:05:06

(A simple configuration, additional configurations will require additions/alterations. E.g. static IP/different interface)

3. Restart the network service

    $ /etc/init.d/networking restart

Though the the latest version of Ubuntu may require you to use the service command to start/stop/restart services

Linux Support / network/interfaces file
November 08, 2013, 09:42:13 PM
Can anyone tell me what the interfaces file is supposed to have in it for Ubun 10.4. I changed it so many times I have no idea what's original and what's my handiwork.

I must configure lappy to use this cable Internet and must spoof the original MAC address of the acct holder, which was easy in Windows- my LAN or network stuff on Ubuntu was always quite balky, though.

First thing- never get a Seagate- I did and they are legendarily junk. I'd go with WD - the most reliable from years ago. I've never had one fail or known anybody else that did.

Linux Support / Re: Login Keyring
September 05, 2013, 05:34:24 PM
ACTUALLY I did this, entering the new password so they should be indentical:


The "Passwords and Keys" window should come up as shown below. Under the Passwords tab, select login, right-click on it, and then click on Change Password:

The "Change Keyring Password" box will come up. Type your old password, and then leave the new/confirm password fields blank. Then press OK, and the information box shown below will pop-up; read it, and then click on Use Unsafe Storage to not have to enter your password at each login:

enter image description here

Close the keyring manager. After you log out/reboot, you won't be asked for your password any more.

I'm getting the different keyring password too- with 10.4.1 if I do

mv -v ~/.gnome2/keyrings ~/.gnome2/keyrings.old

and enter the new password, it doesn't demand the additional step of entering that one also, does it?

I don't want unsafe storage, I'm doing wifi in extremely high threat environment.

It's a real pain cause it just stopped asking for keyring, but afraid it is limiting Wifi

Linux Support / Re: How to test RAM
August 22, 2013, 12:49:50 AM
Can't seem to find the speed of these things in Mhz. That memtest runs forever, seems to finish- no errors, keeps running:
1919Mb total   1085Mb/sec AMD K8 IMC
Settings: RAM : 163 Mhz  (DDR327) / CAS :  2.5-3-3-7 / DDR1 (64 bits)
Does this mean they ran the test at 163Mhz or that I have 163Mhz, no I have DDR 333Mhz??????
The motherboard + FSB is 400Mhz, I think.

Electrically- test all the registers, etc etc. Hmm that first one said 1gb 64 bit, but no speed. Yeah knew I saw some mem test often but couldnt remember where

Linux Support / How to test RAM
August 21, 2013, 04:45:32 PM
Installed new RAM and it seems to fly: 1 gb into 2 gb. What's a terminal command to electricly test the RAM, or even cursorily analyze it? Not sure what speen it is Hynes 2x1gb strips DDR:  Its the same size as 333Mhz though, not 400Mhz (I had one of each), what it's supposed to be. Dont think it matters cause motherboard is only 333 Mhz. Now lets see if the Windows  works. I have a computer again. Only had to pay ~12x more than for modern RAM.

Never mind then. SO maybe it asked me a long time ago if wanted to add Python support, and thought it was installing a bunch of useless stuff you only need if you are writing programs.

The Libre INSTALLATION packages- 76megs, that I want to delete. What folder are they in- do all installation packages downloads store in the same place? So I don't have to download them for 40 min, or find they've been deleted from repositories if I ever need them again.

Linux Support / How to remove Python
August 16, 2013, 03:05:59 PM
I installed Python stupidly at one point at a request, not knowing what it was (it is support for programming, right, which I don't need at all, but it sounded cool). I was unhappy that it was huge, and most programs also install some Python package now. How do I safely remove it for the space; when I tried in Synaptic, it listed essential core functions that also would get removed. ALmost nothing actually needs Python, right?

ALready did that, but waited for your confirmation. Yeah it works GREAT.  Open Office will default to Libre if there no OOo?

And didn't have to reboot- maybe you are thinking of Windows?

Can I save those packages before I delete them?

No, I just want to copy those installation packages to a folder if ever need them again.

Well, sorry to throw any more cold water on you, but Libre does the same weird stuff the last one did: the spell check flags nothing at all, and when you click on a file it opens Sea Monkey first (not when you open it from within the LO).

I know how to purge everything, if I want to install OOo writer, are there any other repositories for it- you think that install core, etc instruction would work, when it couldn't find those dependencies on normal install? Just to complete thread for others with problems- don't plan to mess with it, I think.

What's the difference between installing Pep3 on the first screen or waiting till it loads and doing it from within program. Guess if the LIVE version doesn't load can't trust it to install properly.
