Sleek and light as a feather, this Ubuntu derivative may be 'The One'
As I took a picture of its best parts, I began to ask "Who was she?". What gave the sculptor the inspiration to make her

Step 1: Add
to your /etc/modules
Mine already had an entry so I just added the code directly below it and then hit enter to add 1 blank space at the end of the file. Basically it should look like this:
# /etc/modules: kernel modules to load at boot time.
# This file contains the names of kernel modules that should be loaded
# at boot time, one per line. Lines beginning with "#" are ignored.
You may have other modules like fuse or p4_clockmod or whatnot. That's ok. So long as you put in "apm power_off=1" and keep a blank entry at the end of the file you should be ok. The blank entry might not be needed, but it was there when I started so I kept it.
Step 2: Add
to your /boot/menu.lst so it looks like this:
## ## End Default Options ##
title Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.18-3-k7
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-3-k7 root=/dev/hda2 ro acpi=off apm=power_off
You probably have other entries in your boot stanza like quiet splash and the like, but that's ok. So long as the acpi=off apm=power_off is there it should work.
Please note that just about all the code and what not are shameless rips from Kross's excellent posts. PM him a pat on the back if this worked for you, since it looks like he really took initiative and tracked this problem down well.
To help celebrate its 10th birthday, the ambitious Internet giant is launching an initiative to solicit, and bankroll, fresh ideas that it believes could have broad and beneficial impact on people's lives.
Playdeb includes an APT software repository, and a games list that can be used to install games simply by clicking an install link. The repository can be easily added by installing a DEB package. The install links in the games list require AptURL, which is standard in Ubuntu since 7.10, but Playdeb requires an updated version to be installed. A DEB package for this is also provided.
[UPDATE] 10-08-08 Now Torvalds has a real blog? Is this really him? Who knows. Whatever. I found these on Digg:
The homepage of a WWW-illiterate
Why does this exist at all?Frankly, I don't know. I got a default homepage (in Finnish) made automatically for me, and now I wonder what I should do with it. If you have any great suggestions, feel free to mail me, and I'll probably feel free to ignore you.
