Toshiba Sucks

I got IP_MASQ working very fast on my desktop thanks to the good HOWTO available. have been trying to get the ethernet PCMCIA card for my toshiba to work without much luck. According to the Howto, Toshiba released incorrect information on ther chipset and this driver is buggy because of that. I sent a mail to toshiba saying "I want to buy a Laptop and I heard that the PCMCIA ... ( you can figure the rest )". The PCMCIA author must be very pissed towards toshiba since he has a note in the HOWTO stating "I do not recommend buying toshiba laptops ...", well I am too. Just wait a couple of years and they will be begging him to apply some patches to that same drivers.

gnome-print and GNOME Entry level too high

Need to work on gnome-print. I now have a good idea on what to work on. More on this latter. I have not been hacking for long and I think the entry level to hack on gnome has to get lowered, its hard to find small tasks you can use to learn more and become a better hacker.


This site is cool visit here is the spanish version of slashdot. Visit the gnome link.
