Yesterday I managed to
OK, so Goole has finally released a first version of Google Earth for Linux (beta, of course).
~/.lokidirectory is created with some stuff in it.
~/.googleearth/crashlogsdirectory contains log files which are generated when the application crashes, and sent to Google upon the next restart of the application automatically. The README says that you should basically
chmod 000 ~/.googleearth/crashlogsif you don't want that. They say these files don't contain personal information. I haven't seen one yet (didn't crash, yet), so I cannot tell if that's true.
I'll have to play around with it a bit more, maybe it's an issue with the NVIDIA drivers or something. But as I don't have the source I can basically just make stupid guesses...

Next up: a SUSE 10.1 install. It's been a few years since I touched a SUSE distribution (it was something like SUSE Linux 5.3 or so), a lot has happened since then... Here's a rough sketch of the installation and a few superficial remarks and facts related to security.
/etc/passwd), LDAP, NIS, Windows Domain.
hwinfo, according to that text. More on that later, maybe...
Update 2006-06-05: Added netstat output, and answered a bunch of comments.
Update 2006-06-02: Shortened the length of the article on my main webpage as well as the RSS feed. But you can always read the whole article here, of course.
apt-get install sun-java5-jdk(and a few other packages) in Debian, as Sun has finally relaxed its license a bit. Note that it's still not free, it's just free enough to be distributed in Debian's non-free section now ;-)
Oh great. I have experienced random hangups of my Laptop recently, and I had absolutely no clue what caused them, even after a reboot and looking into the logfiles. Today, after another hangup/crash I think I found the problem (but not the solution):
May 16 00:08:35 localhost kernel: NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth0: transmit timed out May 16 00:08:35 localhost kernel: sky2 eth0: tx timeout May 16 00:08:35 localhost kernel: x45 [sky2] May 16 00:08:35 localhost kernel: [pg0+943960755/1069376512] sky2_poll+0x469/0x548 [sky2] May 16 00:08:35 localhost kernel: [pg0+953407031/1069376512] nv_kern_isr+0x31/0x63 [nvidia] May 16 00:08:35 localhost kernel: [net_rx_action+82/199] net_rx_action+0x52/0xc7 May 16 00:08:35 localhost kernel: [__do_softirq+52/125] __do_softirq+0x34/0x7d May 16 00:08:35 localhost kernel: [do_softirq+34/38] do_softirq+0x22/0x26 May 16 00:08:35 localhost kernel: [irq_exit+41/52] irq_exit+0x29/0x34 May 16 00:44:32 localhost syslogd 1.4.1#17.2: restart.

Note that I could do absolutely nothing on the laptop anymore, no moving the mouse, no typing on the keyboard, no switching from X11 into a text console, no CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE to kill X11, no CTRL+ALT+DELETE to reboot, nothing.
I guess I'll have to file a bugreport somewhere...
