[Ribs] CAPSLOCK IS AUTOPILOT FOR COOL
hay Ribs
Psych
What a strange person.
zaei
LENOX!
Gurkan
\o/ LENOX
zaei
Yeah Gurkan!
lenox
yo
zaei
Macbook =]
Integrated graphics =[
Ribs
macbook pro for you dude
Psych
Sup Viza.
         

zaei
Ribs: Yah =o
lenox
i think i'm gonna get a macbook
i've used the core duo mac mini with the integrated graphics. it's no slouch if you use your ram in dual channel config
zaei
Well, I'm thinking of opengl developing =[
But the price tag is pretty sexy =]
lenox
absolutely
price tag, and 100% OS compatibility
zaei
Srsly.
lenox
what os can't you run on it? i dunno yet. os/2?
hehe
amiga workbench
zaei
And nearly as fast as my desktop.
Ribs
AmigaOS!
lenox
and dualcore!
Ribs
that won't run on it
zaei
Haiku.
Ribs
but AROS might :)
zaei
Probably will.
Doesn't OSX have some really nice OGL development tools?
lenox
yes
i am probably going to have to get one of these bad boys
zaei
The integrated graphics makes me nervous, but it's sooo tempting.
lenox
no worries, it's probably better that way, in a way
as long as your ram is in dual channel mode it's pretty zippy
i saw a mac mini running HL2 under windows smoothly
i mean. it's not a gaming machine. but it's capable
zaei
Mmmmm.
How easy is it to put windows + OSX on these things?
damnyankee
Horay smooth instalation!
Any one familar with wireless?
zaei
Things just got a whole lot less smooth for you ;)
damnyankee
Yhea, I was notcing that
Im on a laptop (thinkpad X24) that has a built in 10base-2 NIC.. I have a PCMCIA Wifi card.
the gentoo docs for wifi are kinda vague.
         

zaei
What PCMCIA card?
a-evol
I need an irc-op now
damnyankee
D-link DWL-630
a-evol
damnyankee: that's a good card
zaei
Well, I don't know if it's NOT possible to use that one...
damnyankee
well thats a step in the right direction.
zaei
I can't wait to get a new laptop so I don't have to fu*k with that anymore.
damnyankee
yhea.. I can if I wana get all screwdriver mad install builtin wireless on this bad boy
zaei
No, I just wouldn't put linux on it ;)
damnyankee
*LOL*
I forget where I need to look for it.. I found a post that says it should be under ath0
wich log do i look in for pcmcia events?
zaei
Should be in messages.
or dmesg.
damnyankee
(Action) doesnt use logs enough...
wow.
Psych
Shh viza, it's quiet time now.
damnyankee
ok, its only seeing it as a cardbus card, its not listing any more detail. I wonder if I have hotplug confgured/running.. Hmmm
Hmmm
apparently its the Marvell chipset... wich AFAIK is a manufactuer, not chipset hmmm
well that helps.
do you know if that is a suported chipset?
oh.
I was trying to find it to compile it into the kernel.
ok, thanks
:)
Gurkan
=)
Psych
:-)
damnyankee
I dont supose that was the hard part :/
ok.. steps to complete.. after I recomple and install my kernel, I need to reboot. Then hotplug should Identify the device corectly?
zaei
Ash*taka: You know it's wireless, right?
Yeah.
So I think it's not gigabit =/
damnyankee
Craptastic.
Hrrrm.
well, i can try it, seeing as the compile is done.
yes, D-link DWL-G630
I think i might be SOL
?
zaei
http://www.linuxquestions.org/hcl/showproduct.php/product/2980/sort/2/cat/all/page/1
Is it a vC2?
damnyankee
it is!
zaei
Enjoy.
damnyankee
thanks man
Psych
what a strange person
damnyankee
Im missing something basic
I emerged the madwifi stuff but its telling me the module isnt there when I try to modprobe it.. perhaps i didnt emerge everything
that might be it.
yep, that was it
why dont I have iwconfig?
zaei
emerge wireless-tools
Or something like that.
damnyankee
ohhh right right

Psych

damnyankee

Psych
Ieks, t9k308.
damnyankee
now I need to figure out how to get the thinkpad extras to work.. so I know my battery status
Yhea, I have. Im thinking i may have forgoten to enable acpi in the kernel
nope, there all there.
huh... I dont have anyting in /dev/ that looks like apm/acpi
well, that would explain it
Gurkan
