Installing fink to Leopard

Today, I install the fink to leopard (Mac OSX 10.5 : MacBook(Intel processor)).
I could not install it before days.... Actually, I don't know what was problems.....

1) To download it from fink project
2) Untar the tar package. I use "fink-0.27.7.tar.gz" .
3) To change the directory to the untered directory.
4) To execute the following command.
./bootstrap /sw
"/sw" is the directory what is the ROOT directory for fink.
Maybe, you can select sudo install.

Finally, we should read the readme file.........
Maybe, I didn't read before trying.....

MS SkyDrive

Last week, I can do nothing. Because I had pain at the eye, head, and all of the skins. So, I wan in my bed.

Well, today, I find the SkyDrive. It is provided by MS Windows Live. It is free as Messenger. We can use 5 GB disk space. I try to use it. However...... the file uploading interface was so bad. When we want to upload the some file then we cannot chose the folders.

MS Office 2004 for MacOSX update

Today, I feel tired. I'm in my bed....

Today, MS Office 2004 for Mac OSX got update....
I find a problem about update.
The update system is so smart because we cannot update all version at same time.
Usually, I update just a time when I remind about it.

However, today I try to push update after updating the office.
Then I could see more update packages.
Finally, I update more than 4 times.

It is not convenient to use.....

USB bootable linux(Knoppix)

Knoppix is one kind of Linux distribution that can boot from CD or DVD.
It is useful when the OS get crash.

Well, following site providing the USB bootable Knoppix.
Recent CD/DVD bootable linux can not overwrite all data to there media (without others data media)

[OS] ReactOS

Today, I got new informations from my younger student.
He told me that we will be able to use the new Free OS.

This OS called as ReactOS.

It is looks like between Unix and Windows.
The most special thing is that the OS is compatibility with Windows XP and NT.

They was be able to use Diablo 2, Remote Desktop and etc... on that OS. ^^;;;;

[ Ubuntu ] printer set up

I set up the new printer on my Ubuntu Linux machine.
I had problem about the password.

The printer management system asked my password before finishing to set-up it. However, the system kicked my password. I suspected it. Then I changed password from command prompt. And try it again. However. the system also kicked my new password.
I ask to prof. google then many of person had same problems. The solution is just easy. We try it with as admin users. However, the system need the user that the user have to have lpadmin groups.
So, you can add your account to /etc/group as lpadmin.

#sudo vi /etc/group
and add your account name to the end of lpadmin
lpadmin:x:109:your_user_name, your_username2(if your pc has more than 2 administrators)
