s2ram configuration with plasmoid battery monitor

March 23rd, 2009 Comments off

Some time ago I have writen a post about configuration of s2ram with kpowersave … now I faced the same problem with KDE4 plasmoid battery monitor, but with a bit different solution, in the file /usr/lib/pm-utils/defaults just update the line:


That should be enough to get You laptop/PC sleep without any plays with s2ram params.

why I chose openSuSE again and howto make updates faster

March 22nd, 2009 Comments off

Today I have tried few distros for my Wife laptop as replacement for Vist.

My first choice was gOS 3.1, screen-shots were very nice, but old kernel prevented it from booting on laptop, after few hours of googling and trying many tricks it still did not booted.

Next was SimpleMEPHIS 8.0, shown it as one of the distros for beginners, so i gave it a try, and I was quite surprised, everything worked fine, I was able to boot, install the os, wifi configuration took only few seconds, but after some time, it got some kernel panic, during next boot it got next kernel panic, it was enough.

Then I have gave a try to Kubuntu as recently I have possibility to play with another laptop with Kubuntu on board, but unfortunately it got the same issue as gOS – I was not surprised as both are Ubuntu based.

After this failures last try was with Knopix which recently got new release 6. Unfortuantelly it did not allowed me to work without swap, and I do not need it on machine with 1GB of RAM, so I droped it.

At the end I have returned to one of distros that I like because of its great management tools – openSuSE, setup was quite fast. There are problems with suse download site, but I already knew about nice trick which switches all the repos to quite fast mirror – from the root command line run:

zypper lr --uri | awk -F"|" '/http:\/\/download\.opensuse\.org\// {print $2}' | while read repo; do sed -i 's/\/pub\/opensuse/' /etc/zypp/repos.d/$repo.repo; done

This allowed very fast update of the system, it started to work during update time, which made me quite surprised.

Thats all for this tonight, time to get some sleep as soon is geting up shortly.
