The problem with hard drive clicking is better described as a “repeating tick tick tick type of ticking sound, or a faint beep at random intervals” (ThinkWiki).
This is a dangerous and annoying issue, yet not addressed on major Linux distributions, so one has to fix it manually.
Create file /etc/pm/power.d/95hdparm-apm with the following contents:
hdparm -W0 /dev/sda
Note: make it executable: chmod a+x /etc/pm/power.d/95hdparm-apm
UPDATE 2011-07-19: Following instructions also work with Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal.
Programming for mobile in Linux was a pain in the neck 6 years ago and it is still a pain in 2011. The following articles may help you in your journey:
If you survive let me know :)
Lua is an embeddable scripting language. If you are trying to embed it in PHP follow this instructions that may help you:
$ sudo apt-get install phpize liblua5.1-0-dev
$ git clone git://repo.or.cz/phplua.git src
$ cd src/
At this point you are almost done, BUT please edit the file Makefile and change the line:
LUA_SHARED_LIBADD = -llua
LUA_SHARED_LIBADD = -llua5.1
Then is time to finish cooking:
$ sudo make install
Almost done, do a test:
$ make tests #all will fail, that is fine by now
$ sudo apt-get install apache2-mpm-worker liblua5.1-0-dev
$ sudo apt-get install libfcgi-dev libapache2-mod-fcgid
Download latest version from: http://luarocks.org/releases/, extract it, open a terminal and do a "cd" into its directory, then:
$ ./configure --with-lua-include=/usr/include/lua5.1/
$ sudo make install
$ sudo luarocks install wsapi-fcgi
If you are an screencaster, for sure you know that there are not much options to grab your desktop + microphone at the same time. Perhaps you have tried some java programs, or simply switched back to windows and used a virtual machine. Too complicated!
Hopefully, there is still an opportunity: recordmydesktop+jack. I will not describe how to install jack here, sorry, google is your friend :)
But once you have jack up & running, do the following:
$ apt-get source recordmydesktop
Install development dependencies
$ sudo apt-get build-dep
Realmente me gusta Firefox y familia(Swiftweasel / Iceweasel), para mi trabajo y uso personal, porque son mis herramientas clave(soy desarrollador y themer Drupal) pero me estresan mucho porque algunas veces pueden consumir todos mis recursos junto a mi servidor web local: Apache, MySQL y PostgreSQL, por eso uso una alternativa ligera: Iceape(versión de Seamonkey en Debian).
I really like Firefox and family(Swiftweasel / Iceweasel), for both: work and home, because they are key tools(I’m Drupal developer & themer) but they stress me sometimes because can consume all my resources in conjunction with my local webserver: Apache, MySQL and PostgreSQL, so I use a lighweight alternative: Iceape(Debian version of Seamonkey).
Update: Don’t use this method any more, please install hplip instead, and make sure to remove foo2zjs and hannah, because they conflict with hplip.
