OK, I had a great time at the meeting on Wednesday, just let me say that
first off. The great thing about linux is community, and WLUG certainly
Now, at this moment I'm listening to a Nickel Creek .ogg on my iPAQ
using Opie's media play w/ libvorbis. It's a little unstable, but once
I get a decent flash card I'll finally be able to take my music files
It took a while to get to this point. I disliked wiki before, now I
positively HATE it (and I think Linux Magazine is on drugs for liking it
so much). Stuff is just, missing - like how to make sure your iPAQ has
dns entries by copying one file.....arrrgh!
I could ssh in right away, and on usb, that was the easy part; but for
some reason iptables weren't working at first and I had to wipe them and
start over, now I've got dns AND iptables forwarding my packets, and the
ipaq is on the internet (no, I'm not writing this e-mail on it, an iPAQ,
no keyboard, remember?).
The only problems I have are with the todolist (it won't start), and
qtopia desktop (it won't link). The todolist is missing a library,
which I'll find, but the syncing issue is a pain, it just won't see it.
Brad's been great and he think going up to opie unstable may solve the
issue, we'll see (don't you just love debian users? They say, "Go use
unstable" as if that's just what people do...). Now, when I get a
tape-player or mp3 input in a car stereo I can finally ask for that
microdrive for Christmas!
