debian configuration (1 of many)



  • This morning's install missed setting up a reasonable /etc/hosts file. Most no
    tably is the lack of localhost.

    Here is what mine looks like now:

    127.0.0.1 localhost
    192.168.1.101 homebrew # home server





  • Get and configure ntp-simple -- I'm using tick.mit.edu s
    ince they are
    about 60 miles and 8 hops from home.


  • Get mozilla-psm to add ssl support to mozilla/galeon



  • apt-get install wireless tools, now configure
    /etc/pcmcia/wireless.opts to look something like this:


  • # Lucent Wavelan IEEE (+ Orinoco, RoamAbout and ELSA)
    # Melco/Buffalo Networks WLI-PCM-L11
    # Note : wvlan_cs driver only, and version 1.0.4+ for encryption support
    *,*,*,00:60:1D:*|*,*,*,00:02:2D:*)
    INFO="Wavelan IEEE example (Lucent default settings)"
    ESSID="10wildcat"
    MODE="Managed"
    KEY="AAAA-BBBB-CC [1] key 9072-ae6a-ff [2] key aabb-ccdd-ee [3] key 777
    7-7777-77 [4]"
    IWCONFIG="key [1]"
    ;;

    (where AAAA-BBBB-CC is my key1)

    Also configure eth1 in /etc/network/interfaces by adding this:


    auto eth1
    iface eth1 inet dhcp
