This reminds me of another similar joke:
A fisherman releases a small 'gator that got tangled up between some branches and as the little gator goes away papa gator - king of the waters around...

I don't know if this is pertinent but it sounds like it could be employed.. whenever Singularity becomes available...
The part about SIPs.

Cool, given that Simon's been quite lazy recently with his stories... this is the reason, I suspect :)

I think it was supposed to be 'over a Linux one'
UNIX only has maybe support [if you're thinking Solaris because if you're thinking SCO you might as well rot in a dark, cold and lonely place] that...

Hmm known combinations that have worked for me:
+ old machines - DEL key
+ newer and average machines - F2
+ laptops - F1 [if they have a BIOS]
+ dual-cpu I have running a pair of Katmai procs...

Also you have to make sure you've gotten everything in cygwin at the time of the install, I know the devel stuff [gcc & co] don't come in by default and I'm sure there's some other things.

Congrats cdkj and to more of them little baby thingies for you and yours!

Tried it in vmware but couldn't get it to play nicely with my virtual harddrives... so I'll wait for a bit until I free a machine at home to 'handle' it.
But it sounds awesome cool!

It is true that big-name distros are significantly simplifying the installation process with good hardware detection and substantial package repositories that do make it much more accessible for...

So, previous research projects. Everything starts out as research but matures in time. It's the scientific process at work. But the [sometimes good] folks at NSA wanted to make sure it all works well...

Root login can be disabled pretty much completely on the local box, ssh, through `su' or X. You could require multiple authentification tokens to be connected to the laptop before root login is...

Well that might be true, but surviving in the tech world entails different aspects than survival in the real world. Money is a factor in this case, that's true, but if the company had the ability to...

Well I'd consider that SELinux is a kernel patch. It is a research in and of itself but once you patch it becomes part of the kernel. The fact that it's not in the vanilla [yet] is a matter of...

Which means come next year you'll have to configure something else right? :)
I guess this is a classic example of survival of the fittest in the tech world. Sad maybe, but it's natural.

Maybe this could've gone in GCC or Cosmos but here goes... a thought that I was pondering on reading through the numerous /. articles regarding Linux and Windows mainly, but anything goes really.

neo-1 sometimes you'll need to research heavily into crypto. The way cryptanalysis works is that you should know as much about the various common-place algorithms and their output patterns and more...

Or you could simply make another entry that doesn't use the video or the initrd for that matter. Plain text assured :)

Dudes and dudettes, the issue in the Slashdot article wasn't that this thing is new :) Everyone seems to skim through posts...
The EFF has managed to break the meaning of what that stuff actually...
October 18th, 2005 05:22 PM
Well in all honesty you're not that behind, as said, /. did post that the EFF broke the meaning of the 'inkblots'.
October 18th, 2005 05:06 PM
Well then I'm not following something along, if you get the Tux logo it means you're in the 'advanced' video mode where you have a resolution, not the standard 80 column display... So I would suppose...
October 18th, 2005 06:23 AM
Umm I don't want to sound dumb but... do you have an image somewhere too? In the initrd is where I know it usually resides [since the filesystems aren't mounted yet]. I mean if you get Tux than the...

I think PGP has a similar check of passphrase strength. I suppose it's essentially based on the characterset and passlength rather than some complicated analysis on collisions, algorithm...
October 17th, 2005 09:27 PM
That's pretty much the only thing that goes into the initrd for framebuffers though since you need this to be able to enable the higher resolution modes.
I suppose USB drivers could be loaded in...
October 17th, 2005 06:44 PM
You need to read up on making an initramd that will contain the necessary bytecode. Module loading happens later on in the boot process so your framebuffer would kick in pretty late. I'm not sure...

The code is ANSI C :) Yes, ANSI, you're allowed to declare main() like that in ANSI C but not in C++. The includes for C++ usually don't keep the .h suffix.
In terms of warnings I'd append -Wall...
