Blythe and I went to Joe vs. the Volcano earlier.... good show.

Ordered pizza with Scott and Eli.

Working on physics now but some retarded person is bugging me on AIM:

day in review

I know you're all craving it, so here it is.... another boring day in review!
  • went to physics. quantum physics is interesting. I wish we did that stuff all quarter.
  • went out to a quick lunch / chat with a sales guy from NetApp ... they have a neat product, but I'm not sure it's ideal for LiveJournal after reading up more on it.
  • cleaned my room... (in the process)
  • talked to dormando a bunch.
  • talked to sarah for awhile.
  • working on installing a new kernel on my new debian system... things I'm trying to learn: debian way of packaging and installing a kernel, ata100 support, raid.
Pretty nice day.... wonderful weather again. Eli says Seattle's in the middle of a drought and we'll be out of water this summer. Hrm... that'll suck.

new kernel!

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
