  1. I didn't know, so I looked it up for you.
  2. Sorry, I've been away for a while. It has a Broadcom chipset... which isn't well supported in Linux. (Complain to Broadcom, and tell them to release technical specs, so someone can program a driver, or tell them to write one, so they can compete with the likes of Intel, Atheros, and Ralink). Broadcom really isn't well supported at all. At any rate, it should work fine in ndiswrapper. To install it in Ubuntu (you need a network connection of some kind), you can install it simply through "sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-utils ndisgtk". Then you should have a shortcut somewhere in the menu for a nice graphical application to install the windows drivers. You may need to enable the universe and/or multiverse repositories though for those apps. (not hard, check out www.ubuntuguide.org).
  3. I was actually the one who Photoshopped the stars for Beyond Hope. I was the only one in the group when it was first established. I created the thread "What do you think the admins look like" or something like that. I'm sorry, but I really hesitate to mention my name, as I was a very different person then. I think I also was voted "member of the year" the first year that NGEmu held awards for that sort of thing. (not anything I am proud of... just trying to give obvious hints without saying my name). I still hate Kane however.
  4. Well, I didn't go by Grey back then. I'll give you a hint. I liked my purple stars, and the name for people with over 10,000 posts was aimed at me. =P
  5. Samor? Do I remember seeing you on NGEmu from the days when I used to go there? If so, it's good to see you. I don't really remember that place so well anymore... but I think I liked you.
  6. With due apologies if the author did not want this posted. http://www.scumways.com/dslurper/dslurper-0.1.tar.gz I don't have a CF or SD card reader for my DS, so I'm unable to test it myself.

    http://kbs.cs.tu-berlin.de/~jutta/toast.html Seems to have a lot of info on the GSM format. And IIRC, there's a GSM decoder available for GBA. I doubt it would be too terribly much work to implement a voip application much akin to a telephone with a DS.
  8. Sorry everyone, being lazy again. But I've decided to take a break from rewriting my station connecting code to write the playlist parsing/manipulation code. (I rewrote the station connecting stuff, and it completely died on me, rewriting it AGAIN revealed the problem, but I am sick of dealing with it, so I need a change of pace. Truth be told, I think most of my code needs to be thrown out, now that I know what I'm doing). Anyways, regarding the post I quoted, I am trying to connect to that station with XMMS, and it just endleslly prebuffers. Anyone else experiencing that, or is it an XMMS problem?
  9. I would strongly suggest scouring the web for UNIX socket programming. I based my code largely off of this tutorial. (I had never touched low level network programming before Dissonance) I also used this directory. So when I developed Dissonance, I coded a test application alongside it, so I basically wrote a Linux internet radio client in addition to Dissonance. Anyways, good luck with your project.
  10. XFCE is another GTK based DE, like Gnome, but extremely light and fast. I was never really happy with XFCE before, but Dapper has the most awesome XFCE build I've ever seen. It's simply incredible. You can find a screenshot tour here: http://shots.osdir.com/slideshows/slidesho....06+screenshots
  11. Yup. Ubuntu's KDE is actually quite nice, and I actually do have it installed on my laptop. To install KDE: sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop To install Gnome: sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop To install XFCE (EXTREMELY nice): sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop
  12. I have a friend who loves KDE, and can't deal with Gnome. I'm the opposite with KDE... it's just too busy for my liking, although I use some KDE applications on a regular basis (K3B, KStars). And no, none of what I posted is hard to do. That's the real beauty of Linux, is the amount of customization available to you. I can easily give you my scripts for the more complex stuff too. (which were in turn taken from someone else, and customized for my liking)
  13. Okay, I'm going right out of my mind, trying to get this crap working. I am trying to get it set up as a thin client, reading off of my server, which has an NFS share set up properly. (I can access it from my desktop, and it's currently mounted). The problem is that my GameCube cannot seem to access it. It tries a couple of UDP ports, then claims it mounted the root file system as readonly. Then it just kind of dies. It responds to ping, but I can't SSH in (connection refused), or do much of anything, as it claims it can't spawn a console. Now, what I am currently thinking is that there's a bug of some sort in the dol. My subnet is, rather than, so I changed the numbers with a hex editor, and they seem to be responding properly, according to the GameCube's boot sequence. I am very very reluctant to change my subnet, as this one is set up just the way I like it. So my question here is if anyone has ever got it working... and if so, can you please post what it says after IP-Config? I am also reluctant to use the gbd version, as NFS seems like the proper tool for the job. But I might try that tomorrow anyway. But in the meantime... help would be much appreciated. I'm going quite insane. EDIT: Nevermind, it's working. I'm a dumbass. Basically, I hadn't untarred the root filesystem as root. I did it again, and it works fine now. (I just need to figure out how to get my keyboard working, and I gather there's a kernel patch for that.)
  14. I'm making some progress on playlist support. (Yeah yeah, I know it's not that hard, I've just been lazy, and I've made some absolutely bone-headed mistakes, so really I've just been moving my code around for the last few weeks). At any rate, the next version is likely to include playlist support, by compiling in a playlist at compile time. This should make it fairly easy to change the playlist for the more advanced users. But I also want a fairly robust default playlist. So, does anyone have any suggestions for stations to be included in the default playlist? The only one I really care about is Virgin Radio Classic Rock... so I'll leave it up to the community to decide the remaining stations. Post your response here, or email me at matter.grey@gmail.com.
  15. Hmmm... Well, the icon sizes are adjustable. Just open up Nautilus and go to Edit->Preferences, and you can change the scaling of your icons, to make them smaller or bigger as you choose. I believe that those icons are either at 50% or 75%... but I'm on my laptop right now. And yeah, that's Gnome 2.14.1, which comes standard with Dapper. Of course, I've made a lot of customizations to it though. A few things that I've done... 1) Swapped the top and bottom panels 2) Moved the drive icons to the bottom panel 3) Added temperature monitoring to my bottom panel 4) Added CPU, Memory, Hard drive usage graphs to the bottom panel 5) Enabled transparency on both the top and bottom panels, with a black background colour. 6) Wallpaper image is randomly rotated every 30 minutes. 7) My laptop has a wallpaper image of the earth, which has accurate cloud cover to within 3 hours, and shows the light/day map to an accuracy of within 10 minutes. It also features accurate stars in the background. On my laptop, I am running AIGLX/Compiz, so it's a lot lot fancier. Transparency is all over the place, as are other 3D accelerated effects, such as wobbling windows, and the whole thing being rendered on a cube.
  16. Sorry, regarding icons, this is a shot of my desktop's desktop. Are your icons bigger or smaller than this? (my resolution is 1280x1024). And let me know what you think of Ubuntu, or any problems that you have. I'll answer them to the best of my ability, or let you know where you can get help if I can't.
  17. Sorry, I've been a little distracted, and forgot to reply to this thread. I've tried Fedora... it stayed on my PC for all of about a half hour before I completely got rid of it. The repositories are terrible, the OS is painfully slow, and the overly-frequent releases just make things a nightmare for maintenance. Fedora does have its uses, but as a desktop machine, I think it's just terrible. Linspire I haven't tried... Mostly because I just don't have any interest in it. It tries to be a Windows replacement... I don't really have a whole lot of interest in making Linux exactly like Windows. I am also not interested in the non-free nature of Linspire... Debian and Ubuntu are a lot closer to my philosophy... Free. Anyways, here's a few things of note about Ubuntu 6.06... (Just so you know why I love it so much). is working just fine on both my laptop and my desktop. Beagle Search is up and running, and working fine. Network Manager makes wireless networks simple, even with WPA. It's FAST. If you are new to Linux, then Ubuntu Guide is your answer. I've been running the alpha/beta versions for the last 4 months, with barely any problems. The release is just nice. And the final version should come out tomorrow.
  18. Ah, so I take it that you are new to Linux? That being the case, I might suggest using something that's a little more newbie friendly, such as Ubuntu or Suse. Ubuntu is getting a new release in another 3 days, that I assure you just plain rocks. Debian is a very nice distro, but tends to be obsolete before it even comes out, and is better suited for servers than for desktop usage. Ubuntu on the other hand is based off of modern software, while still being firmly grounded in Debian. This makes it rather interestingly suitable for both desktop usage and for server usage (although I very much doubt that it will ever be as stable as Debian. It's for people who like to be on the bleeding edge). Anyways, back to the problem at hand... A repository is a staple of any modern Linux distro. To put it simply, it's basically a massive collection of all the free software that the distro developers can find, and placed in one spot. The Debian/Ubuntu repositories are the envy of every man who owns a computer. Apt-get is the front-end to that repository. You tell apt-get that you want to install something like Firefox or a new kernel, and apt-get will download the package for you (along with any dependencies), install it, and set it up for you on your computer. It's a rather amazing program. Anyways, to use it to install the 2.6 kernel on your PC, I will assume that you aren't running a graphical environment. (If you are, I might suggest using Synaptic, which is a graphical version of apt-get). apt-cache search --names-only linux 2.6 This command will search through the repository for anything matching linux and 2.6. I'm not sure what the kernel package is called in Debian, but in Ubuntu it's something like this: linux-image-2.6.15-23-amd64-k8 When you find the package you want to install, you can install it like this: apt-get install linux-image-2.6.15-23-amd64-k8 You will need to reboot the computer at this point... (Kernel upgrades are the only thing that necessitates a reboot). After you reboot, in your grub menu should be a new entry for the kernel you just installed. Select it, and you should be good to go. You can test it by entering this at the prompt: uname -r
  19. I'm an Ubuntu user, and it's dead simple for us to install ndiswrapper... so I am afraid that I can't be of much help. But I can provide you with a link that seems reasonable It suggests upgrading to the 2.6 kernel, if you haven't already. It would seem that NDISWrapper is in your repositories, but is only available for 2.6 kernels. I have been running 2.6 for a very long time, so I can assure you that it's fairly safe (and has lots of nice new features)
  20. Thanks for the link. I'm doing playlist parsing right now, but when I'm done, I'll see what I can do about the stream directory. I had a look at the screenshots, and that seems to be exactly what I am looking for.
  21. My girlfriend actually got me one for my birthday last year. It's a really nice keyboard. The keys are pleasing to the touch, it makes a nice clicking sound when typing, and the layout is perfect. But yeah, it is way overpriced.
  22. Well, here's mine. Case + Power Supply ----------------------- Lian Li PC65B (I have this) Enermax Noisetaker II EG701AX OS --- Ubuntu Linux 6.04 Internal --------- AMD Opteron 280 2x ATi Radeon X1900 512Mb Turtle Beach TBS-3300-01 4x 1GB PC4200 DDR 4x 750GB SATA (RAID 5) Optical Drives --------------- NEC ND-3550A (I have this) Monitor -------- Samsung 244t 24" LCD Keyboard + Mouse --------------------- Das Keyboard (I have this) Standard Logitech Mouse (I have this) Other ------ Quiet fans (I have this) Zalman CPU fan (I have this) Regarding liquid cooling, been there, done that. Don't want it anymore. (Too much upkeep for my liking, and doesn't help with noise levels)
  23. Thanks sgstair. I just built Dissonance against the CVS library, and it didn't really help my problems too much, probably due to a generally lousy connection. But if anyone wants to try it, here's a binary (no source, as it's built off of 0.2.1, just a different library). http://grey.drunkencoders.com/projects/dissonance-cvs.zip I'll try to get some work done soon. I've been playing Half-Life the last few days, as Half-Life 2 Episode One comes out soon, and I needed to get my fix in. But I just finished Half-Life, Half-Life: Opposing Force, and Half-Life: Blue Shift in the last week, so I think I'm good now. I'm back in Linux where I belong, and preparing to boost the volume.
  24. That's the current plan. I'll make it fancier in future releases, but for the next release, I want at least a bit of playlist support, and that's the easiest solution to implement.
  25. Ack! So soon? Yikes, I had better get to work. Thanks for the answer though. If nothing else, I'll try to have higher volume next release. The volume is already all the way up on the DS, but I might be able to boost the samples. The shoutcast directory might take me some time. I had a brief look at the shoutcast directory in Winamp... and it looks like it would take quite a bit of effort on my part, and that's going to take some time. But consider it officially added to the planned feature list.
