  • lmhosts (Assistance NetBIOS sur TCP/IP) is said to be legacy support for NetBIOS over TCP/IP, but I do not known how to access other shares (e.g. NAS) with this service disabled.

Asus U30JC-QX010X Boot Keys

  • F2 : Enter BIOS
  • Suppr : same as F2, but F2 is more reliable
  • F9 : Restore with AI Revovery
  • F10 : Configure booting options
  • Esc : Choose boot device
These keys do not work upon leaving hibernation. And Windows 7 boot menu is not shown either.

Lost Nvidia Geforce 310M

My graphic card disappeared from my asus. I was trying to load latest linux nvidia drivers (with modprobe nvidia) to use the Nvidia Geforce 310m under linux but it told me no such device. The card is also missing in lspci output when I boot Gentoo. And it is not showing anymore in Windows device manager. I only got the Intel HD video driver. Actually, I am not sure anymore about seeing Nvidia driver there... This started to drive me crazy until I read my previous post and saw the line I was looking for :
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GT218 [GeForce 310M] (rev a2)
I did not find anything disabled in the BIOS. As far as I remember, I only switched boot devices (well using Esc key let you choose the booting device).

Well I am currently restoring the four AI Recovery backup DVD and I will see if it helps...

The card is still missing after recovery.

I just filed a case on Asus support web site... Follow up in comments.

devcon status "USB\VID_0B05&PID_1788"

Digging into Windows 7 (Professional)

When you are used to Windows XP and you do not really know Vista, you got a few surprises as you start browsing folder in Windows 7.

Windows 7 annoyances :
  • Contextual menu of folders has no Search entry. You are encourage to use Windows Search and the input box in the toolbar.
  • Access to many (hidden) items in your personal folder (jonction folders) is denied (like Application Data, Cookies, Local Settings, Start Menu, Models, Recent, SendTo...) Well, actually, you have access to the target folder (somewhere in AppData like AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows or AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows).
  • You realize that the folder tree in the Explorer is not the underlying folder tree on your hard drive. In French version, the Explorer shows you a C:\Utilisateurs folder whereas it is C:\Users actually.
  • Window manager ignore elevated Windows (when arranging windows with Tile, Cascade, etc.). Same problem with Alt-Tab.
  • No dock tool bar for your shortcuts. You must attach your programs in the task bar. Nevertheless, you cannot attach two copies (as a normal user and elevated) of the same program. Cygwin entry is conflicting with command prompt. There is no option to run attached applications as elevated.

Windows 7 : 2 days to get first BSOD

I do not have Windows 7 Professional for a long time and it took me only 2 days to get my first BSOD.

Setup Gentoo on Asus U30JC-QX010X : Part 1

Here is how to setup Gentoo on my brand new asus.

Summary :
  • Resize partitions with gparted.
  • Setup minimal gentoo
  • Update Windows 7 boot loader
Partitioning :
  • Burn last GParted live iso (current is 0.5.2-9).
  • Enter BIOS (sup key)
  • Switch boot devices
  • Launch GParted
  • Remove 30 GB from D: (/dev/sda5)
  • Add / partition : 25 GB (/dev/sda6)
  • Add /home partition : 5 GB (/dev/sda7)
I don't think I need a swap partition.

To install Gentoo, I followed both x64 (last updated in 2008) and x86 (updated in 2010) guides.
  • Boot : gentoo with fr keymap.
  • Set root pasword : passwd ...
  • Load wifi : modprobe ath9k
  • ln -s /etc/init.d/net.lo /etc/init.d/net.wlan0
  • Edit /etc/conf.d/net and /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
Copy them from another box through a usb key or edit them from scratch with nano.

/etc/conf.d/net :
modules=( "wpa_supplicant" "!iwconfig" )
wpa_supplicant_wlan0="-Dwext"
/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf :
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=0
eapol_version=1
ap_scan=1
fast_reauth=1
network={
ssid="freebox_essid"
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
psk="secret"
priority=20
}
  • Start network : /etc/init.d/net.wlan0 start
  • Mount partitions :
mount /dev/sda6 /mnt/gentoo
mkdir /mnt/gentoo/home
mount /dev/sda7 /mnt/gentoo/home
  • Set date
Stage3 :
cd /mnt/gentoo
links http://www.gentoo.org/main/en/mirrors.xml
  • Links keys : Download / Quit.
  • releases/amd64/current-iso/stage3-amd64-20100408.tar.bz2
tar xvjpf stage3-*.tar.bz2
  • snapshots/current/portage-latest.tar.bz2
tar -xvjf /mnt/gentoo/portage-latest.tar.bz2 -C /mnt/gentoo/usr
make.conf :
nano -w /mnt/gentoo/etc/make.conf
  • Got CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS from Gentoo wiki.
  • MAKEOPTS is cpu count plus one.
CFLAGS="-march=core2 -msse4 -mcx16 -mpopcnt -msahf -O2 -pipe"
CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}"
MAKEOPTS="-j5"
mirrorselect (free.fr) :
emerge mirrorselect
mirrorselect -i -o >> /etc/make.conf
mirrorselect -i -r -o >> /etc/make.conf
Chroot :

Elixir setup


Free a lancé le projet elixir poru développer des jeux pour freebox. Ce toolkit se base sur enlightenment mon window manager par défaut quand je retourne sur la banquise.

Pour éviter d'installer Elixir n'importe où sur ma babasse en suivant le tutorial de noob plein de ./configure && make && make install, j'ai préféré utiliser la méthode gentoo en utilisant l'overlay officiel d'enlightenment. De l'aide supplémentaire est disponible sur le wiki gentoo.

Quelques notes :
  • Installation de portage-2.2 (mise à jour nécessaire de package.keywords et package.unmask)
  • Pour chaque package du set, ajout d'une ligne =category/package-9999 ** dans package.keywords pour éviter l'erreur missing keyword.
SpiderMonkey

package.use : dev-lang/spidermonkey threadsafe

Last version of SpiderMonkey in current portage tree is 1.7.0-r1. This version does not support JSVERSION_1_8. We need to create our own ebuild for version 1.8.0.

Create a local overlay to host this ebuild :

mkdir -p /usr/local/portage/profiles/
echo "local_overlay" > /usr/local/portage/profiles/repo_name
Add at the end of /etc/make.conf :
PORTDIR_OVERLAY="${PORTDIR_OVERLAY} /usr/local/portage/"

Create spidermonkey ebuild :

mkdir -p /usr/local/portage/dev-lang/spidermonkey
cp /usr/portage/dev-lang/spidermonkey/spidermonkey-1.7.0-r1.ebuild /usr/local/portage/dev-lang/spidermonkey/spidermonkey-1.8.0.ebuild
cp -R /usr/portage/dev-lang/spidermonkey/files /usr/local/portage/dev-lang/spidermonkey/files
Edit ebuild :
