new kernel! [Mar. 7th, 2001|06:46 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
if I don't post for awhile that's because my linux system is hosed. installed my new kernel... time to reboot. *gulp*

make-kpkg is pretty neat, though... so far. :-)

update! everything works.... sound card, raid, reiserfs...

my raid 1 array is syncing now:

papag:/usr/home/bradfitz# cat /proc/mdstat
Personalities : [raid1]
read_ahead 1024 sectors
md0 : active raid1 hdd1[1] hdb1[0]
60026752 blocks [2/2] [UU]
[>....................] resync = 1.5% (939644/60026752) finish=443.5min speed=2219K/sec
unused devices:

# apt-get install reiserfsprogs
# mkreiserfs /dev/md0
# mkdir /raid
# mount -treiserfs /dev/md0 /raid
# cd /raid && touch doot && ls -l

total 0
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Mar 7 19:12 doot

hooray!

Erm, what language are you speaking?

Oh yeah, Brainiac-Computer stuff. Sigh. I am too far into "the darkness" to come out now...

Um...wow, that's a very Quentin Tarantino-ish icon you have there.

Well, sure--he bagged Mira Sorvino, didn't he?

...and as an added bonus, Reservoir Dogs was a rockin' good movie. :-)

Re:

Really? Well, it's the pic--the profile looks like him.

I was told yesterday I look like Deana Carter. I had no idea who it was, but when I saw her, I didn't know if that was good or bad lol. Am hoping it's just the hair.

Who do people usually say you look like?

erm... *ponders a jfs on a 60 gig raid1*

what drives do you have that you made 60 gigs from on your personal machine?

*ponders*

and why is the speed so ungodly slow? 2 MB/sec is crawling... it would seem.

yeah... 2 MB/sec *was* fucking slow.... I didn't turn DMA support on, so my ATA-100 drives were doing a whole 2MB/second. That's fixed now. :-)

i thought you only had two ~30 gig drives?

did you buy a new drive and then turn those 2 into a raid 1 volume?
