My work machine at the moment is a Toshiba Tecra M4 tablet, and I figured I’d give a Ubuntu live CD a go over the week and play with setting up this disc array. I only have a Ubuntu live CD for version 5.04 lying around, so that’s what I used.
The machine booted fine, once I’d disconnected the USB external keyboard, which stopped the hardware detection from working for some reason. Dunno why. In fact plugging the USB keyboard in at any time killed the X server so that the mouse and keyboard never worked again. Odd.
I thought I would add the conference wiki to the CD as well, but htrack does a terrible job of mirroring PHP wikis — mainly because of the large number of possible ways to view a page. Does anyone know of a better way to provide an off line view of a wiki like this?
I’m bored, so I’m making a LCA conference CD. Given that we have no audio, and that the corrupt video is quite big and will be online soon (I just need to wrangle the data across), I’m looking for other things to fill the CD with. So far I’ve decided that photos of the conference would be cool. So, if you have some photos which you wouldn’t mind being on the CD drop me an email and I’ll see what I can do. I’m happy with stamp the images with a domain name like I do here if that makes people happier.
