/etc/asound.conffile as shown below.
/etc/rc.d/init.d/alsasound restartfixes this. Sometimes I have had to issue this a couple of times before sound will get 'routed' to the speakers. Love to hear from anyone if there is a solution for this little problem.
/etc/modprobe.conf. This is basically because, something didn't work correctly while doing this and it wasn't work fixing - since I use wireless about 30% of time and it isn't a real bother for me to manually load ipw3945. I did write a quick hack/script and made a gnome console shortcut (see some comments about console shortcuts in the Misc section) to automate the wlan restart/start. Here is the script (no magic here):
ieee80211: 802.11 data/management/control stack, 1.1.14(Not sure if this was needed, but I was having some trouble compiling ipw3945).
ipw3945: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945 Network Connection driver for Linux, 1.1.0dOn the ipw3945 site, this was only lists as 1.1.0 - but dmesg output says 1.1.0d.
make IEEE80211_IGNORE_DUPLICATE=yand ignored the subsequent compiler warnings. The resulting driver seems fine.
/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conffile. Very simple, just do what it says and read the man page a bit.
wpa_supplicant -ieth1 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf -D wextIt took me a couple of tries to get this right, but eventually the console output read:
/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conflooks like this:
scan_ssid=0 #read in some random post that for ipw wifi cards this was needed. I can't say one way or another.
#psk="the phrase I type in to wpa_passphrase" #which matches the phrase I added as my PSK to my router.
psk=the magic hex string it creates
hdparm -d1 /dev/dvddoesn't work to turn on DMA. We get errors like "
HDIO_SET_DMA failed: Operation not permitted".
combined_mode=libata' after the '
rhgb quiet' stuff in the grub config file, seems to make the DVD/CD drive work much 'faster'. Well at least both of us experience much better DVD playback (perfectly watchable to me - no appearant jerkiness and such). After doing this (and rebooting), my DVD changed from device 'hdc' to sdc0. Which affectively makes the drive act like a SCSI device. At this point, DMA probably doesn't apply and hadparm really can't be used to manipulate the drive anymore.
make IEEE80211_IGNORE_DUPLICATE=yseems to work fine. I didn't do a
make installsince I have a few scripts that use the supplied load/unload scripts and the load/unload scripts seem to work in place.
_POSIX2_VERSION=199209before you run the bin file, the JDK will actually install. Ah, here is a relevant link.
