I put my feet in the water. I did not die, nor was I prosecuted.

android 2.2 and fedora 13 tethering

Of course the wifi tethering is easy to use but sometimes you don't want wifi on in order to save battery or you want to charge your phone while tehtering. In that case tethered USB tethering is better and its as easy as plugging in an Ethernet cable is. You simple turn on USB tethering in your tethering and portable hot spot settings panel on the android device an plug it in via USB. Fedora auto detects the connection and connects. No settings - all magic.

Fedora 13 function keys and 3g usb

Well the best part was the verizon dongle. I plugged it in, it detected it and asked me which network I use, I chose verizon, hit apply and it was good to go. I didn't even enter in my credentials which seems kind of crazy but they might be stored on the dongle itself.

The one thing I had a hard time figuring out was how to set the function keys to be function keys and not media keys by default. I did not want to have to hit the fn key to get F1-F16.

Just sudo edit the /sys/module/hid_apple/parameters/fnmode

1 = media mode default
2 = function key default

Fedora 13

It seems pretty awesome so far. I can't believe much more I can do now with my much deeper understanding of the system. I was able to repartition my disk, edit my grub menu and combine a few boot partitions into one and encrypt the whole thing so that I could load fedora 12 and 13 as I transition my stuff over. If only my stupid macbook pro didn't have a fault CD drive I could have done this sooner.

Between that an getting to the bottom of a long term memory issue on a server at work, I had a pretty good night. That and (e:terry) painted the pillars on the dormer so that tomorrow I just have to sand, re-putty and paint the actual windows.

zoar valley

Had a fun day at zoar valley with (e:terry). I kind of felt bad not finishing the dormer but sometimes I need to do something besides work or housework. At the bottom of this journal, there is a picture of me in a creek where you can see my butt, just stop scrolling now if it will be an issue.

The dormer leering at me.
