    I just got in. It seems we are not an official attack site any more. Mind you, I'm using noscript; I don't know if it is possible to connect without it. I'm not surprised at what has happened. We...

    Shame on you, Rubberman! You didn't read my full post. The chip is VIA, not nvidia. But yes, there is supposed to be a proprietary driver available. I'll try to get hold of it, though googling...

    The smallest Linux browser that I know of is Dillo. You could look at that. Links running in graphical mode is also good (I'm using it now) and very fast but it doesn't do javascript.

    How does...
  4. Problem switching between X and virtual consoles

    I've never seen this before. On my new Samsung NC20 running Dragora 2.2, I can switch from X to a virtual console and I can switch from one VC to another. But when I try to switch back to X, the...

    It's not just the warnings. There really is malware on this site. You can't get a connection using any javascript-enabled browser unless you have noscript installed. Otherwise some kind of rogue...

    Well, I've got a suggestion. Since the jerks who run this site clearly don't give a monkey's about our community, why don't we just all decamp and move to an agreed location somewhere else. We could...

    OK, we're up and running! Dragora install is very basic with rather uninformative prompts, and I needed to have their excellent installation guide up on Bigboy while I was installing on Littleboy. I...

    The headers are all from a site called mmmta50.co.uk, which turns out to be an alias for a legitimate company called mailm.co.uk. I take it this is something like gmail.

    But I just put mstat042...

    I can see where it goes by hovering the mouse over the link text. It goes where it says it goes. But for obvious reasons I didn't want to go to those precise pages, because they might have bad code...

    ath5k is libre as far as I can see. https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/ath5k.
  11. This looks like a scam to me. Has anyone else had one?

    From time to time I get emails, supposedly from a firm called PC Doctor that I once did some business with, offering a free laptop. There are some links to click on, followed by several paragraphs of...
  12. Yeah, same for me too.

    Yeah, same for me too.

    I thought UEFI was the replacement for BIOS, not grub. You still need something for UEFI to boot. I gather that with a single distro, you can boot the kernel directly using its built-in efi stubs;...

    Just tried again with Iceweasel and got the same result. This is serious! If this site gets a reputation for not cleaning up bad stuff promptly, people will just stop using it.

    What on earth are...
  15. So I went and bought another one! Some people never learn!

    Remember all the trouble I had with my last laptop? Just when I had finally got Linux From Scratch up on it, the keyboard broke down. So I sold it back to the shop.

    But afterwards I really...
  16. Iceweasel reports Linux Forums as an attack page!

    I wonder if this has anything to do with the problems I've been having lately with what looks like a malicious script. See my earlier post here.

    I'm typing this out of Links. If I use Iceweasel,...

    It might be an idea to tell us how you solved it. Then anyone else with a similar problem can benefit from your discovery.

    The problem is that passwords have to be so complicated nowadays (and so numerous) that you just can't remember them.

    Some people put them in a locker with a master password and then they forget...

    I didn't know you could put a filesystem on a disk without partitioning it; I thought only optical drives worked like that.

    If you do it that way, what goes in the first sector? Does it have a...

    I think people use backticks from force of habit. It's the way oldsters like me learned to do it. The $() notation is more logical, given that $ is the universal substitution operator, but I keep...

    I already googled that and it didn't work.

    Today I went back into Debian, switched NoScript to "Allow all" and tried again. Still the same result. Then I tried clearing the cache by hand; I used...

    The simplest way to sort out a pipeline like this is to build it up gradually. Then you can see the output at each stage.

    Start with "cat nstat". This will list the contents of the nstat file....
