ATI Radeon drivers

Blah blah blah. The ATI Radeon driver for my video card doesn't work with a simple emerge. I may have to compile the kernel again. Blah blah blah. I'll just use VESA for now. Blah blah blah. It's slow but it works.

ping!!! I'm alive goddamit

My fucking via-rhine NIC now works using this fucking vanilla Linux kernel. I can now proceed installing xorg, fluxbox, and other stuff. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee...

Linux via-rhine support

Not again. I thought they've fixed this stuff already. Linux doesn't support my VIA Rhine NIC, even though I've disabled ACPI already. The other Intel NIC works perfectly fine though.

Lemme recompile the kernel using vanilla-sources. This better work. :)

With all this hoopla about K/Ubuntu, one would think that this is a revolutionary distro of some sort, sent by the messiah.

Meh. I'm gonna replace my other PC with Gentoo. :)

I hope I can resume my Xen experiments

My experiments on Xen was stopped a few months ago since the amd64 machine that I was working on was needed by the company.

Fortunately, I now have two CPUs sitting at my desk right now. I'll be installing Kubuntu on the other CPU so that I can use it for "official" work. I've been using it as a prototype box for our network appliance, but I figured that I can maxmize its use by using VMWare instead (hence the decision to use Kubuntu, even though NetBSD already has a stable Xen support; VMWare doesn't have a native port for BSD). Since the prototype will now be running inside VMWare, I can now use Xen kernel for the host OS. Weeeee...
