Planet Manipal Fixed

with 5 comments

Planet had a very bad habit of replacing the title of your post by your nickname or the image description of the image that is there in your post , finally i got a way to make planet not do that and well it was damn  easy just switching the feeds from RSS to Atom works and no other setting is required. I am going to switch over to a proper hosting so will host Planet Manipal properly there and the updates will be more regular till then enjoy!!!!!!!

Configuring WiFi with Ndiswrapper on Debian

leave a comment »

Note :- If you want the way to make ndiswrapper work just skip the first paragraph its total crap

Well as i have a Broadcom BCM4312 on my HP 6515b laptop, i face a lot of problems with WiFi and the only solution that i know of is using ndiswrapper with makes the windows driver work on Linux, anyway i installed Debian on my laptop around 1 month ago and then never looked back at it, ya i love Fedora, so yesterday when i rebooted my laptop after around a week i saw the Debian entry on my grub i booted into it and tried to connect to the WiFi network which reminded me that i have not configured ndiswrapper and as i have all 3 DVD’s of Debian with me i was sure it wont be a problem, but it didnt work and i was left wondering what now, and i started searching the DVD for any other package then i thought ok lets try to build the driver and there i was with a working net in just 5 min

Ok so lets start, you need module-assistant as you have to build the ndiswrapper from the source saperately, so type
apt-get install module-assistant
then prepare the build environment
module-assistant prepare
this will download the kernel-header and setup the symbolic links, now install the ndiswrapper-source package
apt-get install ndiswrapper-source
if you have internet access only via WiFi the download the packages from and then install them, next build ndiswrapper
module-assistant build ndiswrapper
now type
apt-get install ndiswrapper-utils-1.9
now you are ready to install the drivers for that follow this enjoy

I reached home 2 days ago and i have already completed 1/3 of my To-Do list’s task but still a lot remains to be done.
the things that i have completed are, First setting up of a LAMP server and MediaWiki on that >> done this with a Fedora 8 based server on my desktop, it was really easy to do but i still have to learn a lot about MediaWiki as we are planning to use it for LUG Manipal’s Wiki. Second was trying to SSH form my cell >> done this by using MidpSSH as putty for symbian was giving me trouble with my E61i, i was able to do almost all the things through it like writing a simple C++ hello world program and compiling it by g++, but the best thing is that now i can run 3D effects on ati 1250 on Ubuntu 7.10 , yes i finally found a way to make it work and it works pretty well without the need to downgrade xorg but still the process comprises of things taken from here and there so the final and the best part will come up shortly, so till then bye cya
