Re: Route to LAN subnet via OpenVPN client

I think it might require something in the OpenVPN config itself, I will have to RTFM. At this point I've just read an example configuration and modified it.

Route to LAN subnet via OpenVPN client

I have a VPN client with a LAN subnet I would like to reach from the VPN server. I've never done this before but it should be pretty easy. So I turned on forwarding on the VPN client, and tried adding a route on the server to that subnet. I got an error from route that it doesn't know how to reach t...

Re: Strange issue with Firefox and Nightly

Update: The box that appears on the screen seemed to reload the page after pressing enter. I just had a look at phpinfo(); on a script. The text you enter becomes the browsers user-agent string on the request to reload to page. Incredibly strange stuff.

Strange issue with Firefox and Nightly

This one is a little hard to describe Basically firefox and nightly on debian stable are having a strange bug. When I press shift-u a little box appears in the middle of the browser window with "default/ios/android/custom" written in it, cut off at the end. I can't get a screenshot of it, it disappe...

fglrx problems

I am using debian squeeze, and I tried installing the fglrx drivers from the AMD website. My xorg would not start and gdm would hang (10 years ago gdm quit trying after a few times, what happened?) - so I installed the fglrx drivers from apt and removed ATIs drivers. I am getting segfaults now from ...

Re: Debian "Wheezy" troubles

I managed to fix this myself, I don't know how it happened. It was a lot easier to fix that I thought, manually editing package stuff seemed a little out of this world. I was expecting a cleanup program to exist. That whole thing could have been automatic. I wish the Debian community was so daunting...

Promiscous mode just means your network card can 'listen in,' you are worried about nothing.

Windows RAID

Oh Windows RAID, You would let my files fade. I had you striped and you spanked me. You don't commit writes for some mystery. I've lost so much data I'm glad I had Steam. Oh Linux RAID even though you're software. You are just as fast it seems, and I trust you. You've not lost anything on me! And no...

Re: Google rips off Linux GPL code for Android?

As far as I can tell Calum you're a consumer rights advocate in a consumption driven recession. All you care about is you. What about the developers? I might need a few patents, to secure a meal. I don't want a damn ration card! EDIT: I forgot to point out that this patent system should be abolished...

Debian "Wheezy" troubles

I've got a strange one I've never had from apt-get, but it seems oddly familiar. I was using Fedora for most of this year after many of using Debian. Only now I have no Windows anymore, never again needed in my home, since Minecraft is the only game I'll ever need. I can't install any new packages u...

Re: Ubuntu running alongside Android on Android phones

There is an installer in the Market for Ubuntu and Debian called "Linux Installer," which does all of this for you. Consider the howto a no-gainer. I have debian sid running, vncserver, tor, and firefox. The iptables settings are really annoying, keep posted if you find a way to get rid of them.

Re: Google rips off Linux GPL code for Android?

Well Void has an incredibly good point there, it seems the precedent is on Google's side. Anyway Calum, I thought you were against intellectual property.
