Antonella's Laptop

  • Set MYTITLE = - Mytitle in Laptop
  • Set MYDESCR =
  • Set MYKEYS =

Under /opt it is installed:

  • firefox
    • created an icon on the panel with launch this command: /opt/firefox-
    • installed plugin for acroread 8.1.2
    • installed plugin for Adobe Flash Player (automatically with firefox under desanto's home directory)

  • jdk 6 update 6
    • downloaded jdk-6u6-linux-i586.bin
    • create symbolinc link for firefox
      ln -s /opt/jdk1.6.0_06/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/
    • created file /etc/profile.d/
      export JAVA_HOME=/opt/jdk1.6.0_06/jre
      export PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH
    • /usr/sbin/alternatives --install /usr/bin/java java /opt/jdk1.6.0_06/jre/bin/java 2
    • /usr/sbin/alternatives --config java

  • Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller
    By default it is recognized but it doesn't work. Module loaded snd_azx. So I downloaded alsa-driver-1.0.16.tar.bz2 and I did:
    • cp -ar /lib/modules/2.6.9-67.0.7.EL.cernsmp /lib/modules/2.6.9-67.0.7.EL.cernsmp.orig
    • ./configure; make; make install-modules (NOT make install)
      in this way snd_azx is substituted from snd_hda_intel
    • created a very simple script for managing the wirless. it's /opt/bin/ and the configuration file for every SSID ar stored under /opt/bin/wirenet/

  • for external wireless (NETGEAR)
    • yum install kernel-module-madwifi-`uname -r`
    • added with visudo
      desanto ALL= NOPASSWD: /opt/bin/*
      so now it's possible to use this command: sudo /opt/bin/

  • printers
    • Added "ServerName" in /etc/cups/client.conf

  • Hard Disk for backup
    • Initially it was recognized as /dev/sdb so with udevinfo -a -p $(udevinfo -q path -n /dev/sdb) > udevinfo.diego
      it is possible to find out the field that identify in an unambiguos way the hard disk (ex. SYSFS{product}="...", SYSFS{serial}="...")
    • I used that information to create the file /etc/udev/rules.d/10-local-persistent.rules
    • with
      lshal > lshal.diego I took informations for creating the file /usr/share/hal/fdi/95userpolicy/desanto_bck.fdi
    • I copied the file zz-hda-nightly-mirror in /opt/bin/ and I slightly modified it for supporting the reading of "LABEL=..." and not only "/dev/..." for file /etc/fstab.
