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: localhost homebrew # home server

  • Get and configure ntp-simple -- I'm using 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
    INFO="Wavelan IEEE example (Lucent default settings)"
    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
