According to an colleage of mine, the Linuxkernel 2.4.5 and up seem to be a little unstable, so I am usine up2date to update to RH 7.1. (it will give me the 2.4.3 kernel instead.)

I am also studying some more fun stuff like perl and more general Unix like things.

I am also still trying to get the WVlan card to work. No such luck at this time :(

I am happy :) I am wireless an have updated to RH 7.1 with the 2.4.3 kernel and an update of modutil did the trick .


Bought a Laptop of my own this weekend. Monday I started out configuring a wilelessLan card. No luck so far, but I have all the time I need :)

Currentley I am compiling a 2.4.6 kernel for better pcmcia support, so I have time to update my diary here and some time to study.

The Xircom card is working fine, it does not come up at boot, but if activated it works fine.

I hope to get my ownd card next Thursday. So I don't need this one anymore, because I am borrowing it from my colleauge Bas

Currently I am having fun modifying my Dune RPG with some new rules (AD&D style), I am also planning a move from Yahoo (egroups: dune-rpg@egroups.com) to coollist.

Go to http://www.coolist.com and learn more or subsribe to dune-rpg@coollist.com. The rules and a new story will be posted within the next 2 months.

All goes well here at the Lodge. They have found an Successor for me, so my job here is done. The gap has been breached. I can keep the Laptop, so it's worth it.

I am leaving somewhere in July/August to an new job, if any available at that time, but Snow will take care of that. In the meantime,I can continue my Perl & Unix studies :).

I got my SnowCar Yesterday. It is a blue VW-Golf TDI (a red I to be exact) The car is filled with little funny gadgets, I like it that way.

My Celluar rang at about 0400 last night, so I didn't get much sleep, 'cause I didn't get to bed before 0130 so I am pissed and sleapy and so on....but It pays my Bills and I can save it all for more gadgets all toll/VAT/Tax-free so it is for a good cause.

Some of my colleagues have seen the light. It will not take long or some wil start using Linux vary soon :))


When it comes to kill users when the lost their TTY, the internet is not much help.

Randakar was And I mean A LOT The guy is great. Thanks pal.

Currentley I am testing it, it seems to be working. It is to bad, the users close their app's as they should.


I started out writing a script that kill a users PID when it has lost its TTY (i.e. pts/8) They are generic users called vvoplan. The script now produces a .csv, so I don't have to filter them out manulally. The problem is, I cannot add the kill -9 if I don't know what PID the users are gonna get. :(

As we all know the PID is at random. How do you kill that one.


The card works fine now, the problem seemed to be the Xircom adapter-cable from the card to UTP.

When working with AIX, I found out (as a newbie to AIX that is) it is a lot easier than other Unixlike OSses. It uses Smit As a tool when configuring the Server. Now I am configuring a testsystem for mirroring.


Shopping for a Laptop of my own, is a dirty job. I have to, but am in no hurry. I will have one for the duration of this job.
