I bought this laptop Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Si 1520
http://www.e-shop.gr … .phtml?id=PER.906260
sometime in 2006.
Its amazing. This laptop is keep working almost every day for a lot of hours without any complains.
Only two problems so far:
a. the screen isnt as clear as in the beginning of my trip &
b. the battery seems to be holding just for an hour or so.
I’ve recently figured it out, that the touchpad can identify multi touch events!!!
And i can now scroll up & down using my two fingers.
And even more recently i tested to see if the cpu is 64bit. And it is!!!!
This dual core cpu is working perfectly on 64bit.
I’ve decided last friday to rebuild my current machine to an arch 64bit core distro.
This time i’ve used lvm and converting my sda partitions to logical volumes wasnt pretty!
A lot of hours (in fact after 3 full days) later my current machine has:
- winxp home partition
c. encrypted home
other logical volumes.
Just for a moment remember that i bought this laptop back in 2006, but fujitsu inform me that this build is from latest 2005!!!!
I dont have any SSD disk at the moment (i leave testing to other people) but the magic with this laptop is that it can support natively kvm (Virtualization extensions).
I mean thats a good old fashion laptop.
if you have a lot of files with comma separated values and you want to see them more humanly: $ column -x -t -s’,’ * | more
Unfortunately thats a known fact by xmarks it self.
Is there a work around ?
The disable proxy suggestion isnt a solution, especially if you cant access internet directly.
In my research for solution and gazillions test i think i’ve figured it out.
a. Using proxychains.
- Chain your proxy
export -p LD_PRELOAD=libproxychains.so
before running firefox (or alter firefox startup script)
works even with an http proxy!
b. Using a socks proxy.
Using a socks proxy, xmarks can connect to your custom (or not) webdav server and sync!
So if you arent using an http proxy (directly), xmarks will sync.
kvm on lvm: # lvcreate -L 5G vg01 -n winxp # kvm -cpu host -m 2048 /dev/vg01/winxp -cdrom winxp.iso -boot d
The nightmare: # du -sh -x /lost+found/ 10G /lost+found/
!firefox 11 ctrl+shift+i (insept) 3d view ccs
!citrix note: # xe vm-list # cd /opt/xensource/packages/files/transfer-vm # ./unistall-transfer-vm.sh && ./install-transfer-vm.sh
