object file Binary (Laptops...)

Mon, 08/06/2007 - 19:22
I managed to talk my yacht design program writer out of an object file this file was written on Red Hat 9 it won't open on any of my equipment. I was thinking that if I 'make' it on my 64-bit computer the result will be a 64-bit prog. I am a yacht designer NOT a programmer so help would be appreciated.

Call for testing: Updated madwifi drivers (General Hardware...)

Mon, 08/06/2007 - 19:22
Hoping for some help from you guys on this one

As has been discussed here before, an updated madwifi was released a few weeks back which includes a security fix among other changes. We now have a candidate update available in 2007 Spring /non-free/testing.

Please, if you have a card that uses the madwifi driver (cards with Atheros chipsets), help us test out this updated version. Follow the instructions at to enable the /non-free/testing repository, and then update all madwifi-related packages. Make sure that dkms-madwifi is included and you have the appropriate kernel-source (or -devel, if you're using kernel-tmb) for your kernel installed. Then reboot and let me know if the new driver works. Thanks a lot!

From the recent newsletter:

"Mobility: Corporate Desktop 4.0 features simplified configuration of
secure remote access (DrakVPN) and simplified configuration of 3G
data cards in order to remain efficient wherever you are."

Any chance of us club members being let in on the arcana of the 3g cards?
