    RE: Games which are Linux-only
    Penumbra is a nice commercial Game too. They have it as Linux Version. There was news that the game will be going opensource soon. Bought the Collection Pack a year back and have started playing recently.

    RE: All Linux Network
    Also check http://www.ltsp.org/ If your clients are not going to use a lot of resource and you do not need powerful machines at the client end then this is a good choice. Here is one more: http://linuxgazette.net/124/smith.html This is a multi-seat technique. One PC, several Keyboard, mouse and Displays.

    RE: getting a USB2VGA to work
    No Succes yet. but it seems like someone at OLPC managed to get their hands on the same identical piece of Hardware and has been trying to work on it with little success. http://wiki.laptop.org/go/User:Samir/USB2VGA_UVT-100_dev The developer (Samir) seemed to be discussing the drivers with some hardware vendors for more help in JAN http://lists.laptop.org/pipermail/peripherals/2009-January/000155.html But there is no updates on it. When I diffed his drivers they turned out to be sisusb driver with modifications. Still No success.

    getting a USB2VGA to work
    I recently bough a SheevaPlug Dev Kit and a USB2VGA adapter made by Startech in the hope of getting a cheap light PC to run at home for the very basics. As i understand, these USBVGA devices are supported by the sisusbvga driver. The custom kernels for the Sheeva available online from various sources do not have the sisusbvga compiled into it. So i took the pain of compiling it myself. But unfortunately I havent been able to get any kind of display on the USBVGA. Neither console nor X. When starting X, it claims to not even find the device. The usb.id for the device is "0711:5001 Magic Control Technology Corp. SVGA Adapter" (I added the SVGA Apater manually into the usb.ids file) Could any one help me figure it out and get this thing working? Thanks

    RE: getting remote output with expect
    I did find a solution to my woes. I needed to use the interact command in order to execute the commands in the remote shell. However now I cannot execute it if it is run from a cron.. nevermind thou, I found another solution to my original problem(which was taking snapshot of the device's memory)

    RE: getting remote output with expect
    I know about SSH. and the box in question is not a computer. It is a Set-top-box. Since it is a box with a very limited footprint, SSH cannot be installed on it. "expect" is what I expect to use over here.. "man 1 expect" for details on the expect interpreter

    getting remote output with expect
    I'm working some embedded boxes with limited functionality. They run Linux(busybox shell). Its not fullfledged. only some of our custom code.. I need to reboot the box at times or run commands like top on it. I tried my hands at using expect using simple expect, send, send_user sequences. However, although I can login to the box, I cannot issue any other command once in. I've tried to [b]expect " # "[/b] thinking that it will wait for the # in the bash prompt and then send a [b]command\r[/b] But doesnot help. Can any one guide where I'm going wrong?

    RE: Trouble burning
    Copy data to a folder lets say "/path/to/data" and you want to label your disc as "Disc_label". Also lets suppose the device node for your recorder is "/dev/XYZ" Now enter this command [b]mkisofs -o - -Jvr -V Disc_label /path/to/data | cdrecord dev=/dev/XYZ -v -eject - [/b]

    RE: What distro is best for a webserver?
    I agree with Ajay. I use Slackware for my own site [url=http://www.tuxopia.net]Tuxopia.net[/url] Slackware can be installed and tweaked to be lean by installing only those packages that you really need. A server doesnot require any X packages. You wont need any media capability as well, neither will you any other services like bluetooth, etc, etc. so use any distro that allows you to customize what you install.. Other examples are Debian, Arch and Gentoo.
