Re: possible to connect a USB external hard drive to an Andr

Possibly, sort of. It depends on what type of 'phone you have as to how easy it is. Phones that have the lapdock option automatically get 2 USB ports from the factory when they are plugged into a lapdock. They read SD cards in a USB adpater and USB thumb drives just fine. I've recently installed an ...

Re: Finding any Linux to run on my laptop?

Hmm. Well, I'm not too keen on Puppy as I've tried it before; but an old Ubuntu 9.10 disk I have does boot into Live mode successfully. I used 9.10 for two years (I don't update every six months!) so I know my way around it. However, in Live mode it didn't recognise the wireless, nor the wired conne...

Re: change password without knowing current password?

Might be quick and dirty but add in insecure as well. You can easily implement sudo to run what you need without passwords, etc. If you're going to run a user with the UID of 0, basically making it another root user, you might as well just login and use root, there's no difference in what your doing...

Re: can ubuntu's update manager be hacked?

Whilst of course it is possible to hack package management systems it seems strange that somebody would do so and remove the need for the root password. Seems a good way to let a victim know there's something wrong and seems also to serve no other purpose. Before assuming "hacking" learn how a syste...

Re: Creating a Wi Fi hotspot with a 7 inch Android Tab?

You can buy dedicated 3G WiFi hotspot devices, a quick look on Amazon makes me thing they're not cheap though you could probably buy one with contract from a network for less.

Re: What phones can run GNU/Linux?

OMG. I like and use EMACS but I cannot conceive of using it on a 4" touch screen, or trying to program on one.

Re: Sony Vaio and Linux

It sounds solid enough.Give win 7 60 or 80 megs in case you want/need a m$ system (I find I use one a couple of times in a year), and install the distro of your choice, and configure it carefully & lovingly.I promoted myself to slackware, and haven't looked back. Less maintainance, I find.

Re: Nebie with RSYNC

How is it possible to only update the changes of a file. For a Word (.doc) file for example, it isn't just a text file, so how would it know how to update the changes of the file without messing up the file structure? Also... The -a option, isn't that for archive? Not sure what that does. Finally, s...
