why soo much of fuss?

This is my presumption that those taking up Linux hardly bother about whats happening in the outside world or to the economy. They are there because they like doing what they are doing

Frankly I was never formally introduced to Linux as such, even in my college days Microsoft was everywhere(no special disliking for the OS ). I never thought of the market value or the trend in market that will fetch me a job as soon as pass out. It's all in the attitude. One thing is for sure that no one can force Linux on to someone, it's all out there u want to take it.. take it or leave it

Those taking up will work their way up irrespective of what happens from installation, setting up env for development, troubleshooting .. and believe me now a days doing all these are a cake walk when compared to some prehistoric era when yum, apt where not there
Open-source tip: Require less developer time to earn more of it

"There is a couple living nearby who my wife and I try to avoid at all costs. It's not that we don't like them, it's just that they consume so much of our time. We know that saying "hi" is tantamount to opening a filibuster-proof, hour-long conversation, so we try to evade that initial communication."

Has ASUS all but given up on linux?

"The entire range was there, from ultra-portable, touch screen netbooks to high-end, quad core Lamborghinis (I'm not joking). Even Windows Vista was there. There was only one thing missing -- Linux."

5 Best pen-Test Linux Distributions

"Linux distributions are often customized to perform many specialized tasks cater to a particular industry, hobby or business. Security Penetration testing is one such niche where professional (and hobbyists) use customized Linux distributions with the whole purpose of doing security tests on networks and personal computer"
Believe your own instinct and rely on that.. at times it may falter but don't worry since it's your own life that you are putting at stake and believe me it won't last for long.

The Dataone By BSNL

Who in this world is without shortcommings? It's no different for BSNL's dataone, but one thing I am damn sure is that I won't replace it with any other BB service provider.. reason .. I have fallen in love with the way they provide round the clock service that a typical Indian (like me :)) would expect them to ..

- frequent disconnection
- support desk will respond only after 5 to 6 calls
- speed is good
- expect the most unexpected i.e promptness


Happy browsing with dataone

The bootchart app gives a graphical o/p of the boottime process. Even after disabling some unwanted services it's bit slow..

What happens when u use bittorrent...

I ll have bloody DSL connection with the speed of dial-up ... obvious isn't it

restrain, abstinence is the key

People do think that being demanding or having a lure for certain thing is not wrong.. It's true but only when it is confined to that certain matter. Now that is restrain
Always keep in mind that the real thing(s) in life is not atall real. It's really within you not anything that resides out of your body.

It's just a matter of time that will fetch you result but no one can deside on how much of time is assigned for a particular task unless or until that task have been done previously...

Man taking up the role of GOD

Avian flu - lot many avians were killed
Foot and mouth - lot many cattle were got rid off
Swine flu - it's swines in the line of firing .. they were taken care of.. put to rest then why not humans infected with common cold, fever, human acquiring swine flu... the list is endless - why not execute all those. Why the hell humans take up the natural cleansing in their own hand, just because they are in control of hardly few stuffs in nature doesn't give them the right to do whatever they want with any living beings that occupy this planet.

Humanity is not just for humans it is for all the living beings(suffering and non suffering alike) on the planet earth ('cause i am aware of this planet having life-form).

Ubuntu 9.04 Desktop - release Notes

Guys before jumping over to 9.04 read the release notes well for hackers they can figure it out as they go by..


Somehow I figured out the way to newly install windows XP home edition along with ubuntu.

Problematic scenario
Had ubuntu intrepid along with winXp but at the time of newly installing windows screen went blank at "Setup is inspecting your computer's hardware configuration" and there was no response atall besides that the "press any key to boot from cd...." never use to come.. क्या हो रहा है

fdisk -l (o/p)

/dev/sda1 1 1147 fat32
/dev/sda2 1148 14593 Ext
/dev/sda5 2295 2306 linux
/dev/sda6 2307 8385 linux
/dev/sda7 8386 8871 swap
/dev/sda8 8872 14593 linux
/dev/sda9 1147 2294 fat32

Solved:- जैसे मन में आया
Using ubuntu live CD deleted the Win partition and newly installed ubuntu keeping the home partion intact (since intrepid was giving me some trouble related to network - static/dynamic). Now I was able to get over the problem and was able to create partitions using win partitioner, but at the time of instation it would again enter into the "Setup is inspecting your computer's hardware configuration" and would start again॥ soo i did the the ubuntu installation again which got the windows entry in the bootloader and selected the wind option now enter the win boot cd and continue with the installation.. Remember to remove the win boot cd at the time of restarting..

कारन :- I am not even able to fix the MBR using windows cd.. I ll post some images related to this event


जिंदगी मे एसे पल भी आते है जब की अहेसास होता है की मुस्किल से मुस्किल सफर भी ताई करना हमारे बस मे ही है

I like to do things that i can be in ctrol of, let it be life or my interest. It doesn't mean that I like to play boss over anything or anybody rather it's all about the freedom with which I can carry out the task and I know that freedom has it's own setbacks like how much of freedom is freedom or does freedom comes with a set of rules if so how can that be freedom. Hmmm

Qt-4.4.3 installation from src - Jujubuji

There was a time when installation from rpm was a trend then came aptitude and apt-get. Well here the src is compiled to get a workable Qt env.
I have tried to get rid of most err during compilation

make confclean
configure -v
./configure -xshape

firebird2.0-dev --- for InterBase
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lgds

What used to be libgds is now called libfbclient.
ln -s /usr/lib/libfbclient.so.2.1.0 /usr/lib/libgds.so

freeglut3-dev ---- openGL
libcups2-dev - remember there are dependent lib

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lxslt
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lpam

after getting rid of all the cann't find libs I got the following o/p
