How Secure is Ubuntu?

I got an email today about a bug in ubuntu:

It seems that the user's password created during the instalation is listed in, at least, 1 file.
Read the whole thing here

Isn't that funny? Thank God I came back to Debian 🙂

Back to Windows?

Well, my lovely old NIC is broken (a RTL 8139 Chip) and I don’t know why 😦 so I went back to my old Nvidia NIC (Nforce3) and then…everything was slow again 😦

I’m going to buy a new NIC tomorrow 🙂 and hopefully it will work ok…but hey, lets wait until I have the NIC

Changing Distro!

Well, it seems that (K)Ubuntu has some bug in the network because is really slow accessing webs, Firefox and Konqueror waas sooooo slow that I was really pissed off every single day I used. But then I had an idea: Debian! yes!! I'm installing Debian right now, upgrading the system and then I'll install KDE or Ubuntu (it depends on the version). Right now it's almost finished so later I'll get my hand on this. I have to go to Eva's house…c-ya 😛

PS: This post was made with Lynx, works just fine 🙂

Usando Tarjeta de Red Nvidia NForce3

Al parecer, luego de instalar los drivers de Nvidia, el driver que instala (k)ubuntu sigue cargándose y sigue siendo utulizado por el kernel como driver primario. Para que esto no suceda, se puede llegar a una solución algo lógica:

Creamos un archivo llamado:

sudo gedit /etc/init.d/nvnet

en el archivo ponemos esto:

#!/bin/sh

rmmod forcedeth
modprobe -r nvnet
modprobe nvnet

y ejecutas

sudo ln -s /etc/init.d/nvnet /etc/rcS.d/S40hz_nvnet

Ese 40 pone el script después del hotplug, pero antes de que se configure la red 😉 y para que el archivo pueda ser ejecutable:
sudo chmod ugo+x /etc/init.d/nvnet

Y bualá 😛

Changin my FTP client

After dealing with so many error with KBear, I get tired of it, so decided to change to my old loved Gftp, it’s Gnome based ftp client but is really good one, so I won’t be using Kbear anymore 😉

Playing arround with Kubuntu

After some Kubuntu-hollydays, I came back to Kubuntu. I was wondering about win32codecs (something like DivX) and I remembered that there is a Video player which includes all the codecs you need in order to play any kind of video: VLC.

From package:

VLC is the VideoLAN project’s media player. It plays MPEG, MPEG2, MPEG4, DivX, MOV, WMV, QuickTime, mp3, Ogg/Vorbis files, DVDs, VCDs, and multimedia streams from various network sources.

VLC can also be used as a streaming server that duplicates the stream it reads and multicasts them through the network to other clients, or serves them through HTTP.

VLC has support for on-the-fly transcoding of audio and video formats, either for broadcasting purposes or for movie format transformations. Support for most output methods is provided by this package, but features can be added by installing additional audio plugins (vlc-plugin-esd, vlc-plugin-alsa, vlc-plugin-arts) or video plugins (vlc-plugin-sdl, vlc-plugin-ggi, vlc-plugin-glide, vlc-plugin-svgalib). There is also a web browser plugin in the mozilla-plugin-vlc package.

It’s perfect!!!

Using a MousePen with Kubuntu

I just edited the xorg.conf file following some directions but it seems that it’s not working 😦 I’ve been searching for some more info about it, but I have to do it harder 😛

I’ll keep searching…
