Today I wanted to install a game 😀 but I needed some Windows libraries. I decided to fill them with winetricks and when I started the script I received the following bucket message –

$ ./winetricks
 ------------------------------------------------------
 wineserver not found!
 ------------------------------------------------------

Quite a fun situation and at the same time extremely obvious. Winetricks does not find the wineserver binary file. Generally normal because I use x64 Debian Linux and the packages I use are not from the official source. The solution is elementary in 2 steps

1. We find the path to the wineserver

$ locate wineserver
/usr/lib32/wine-unstable/wineserver
/usr/share/man/de.UTF-8/man1/wineserver.1.gz
/usr/share/man/fr.UTF-8/man1/wineserver.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/wineserver.1.gz

And we create a symbolic link to /usr/local/bin/wineserver where the script in question looks for the default file but in my case it is /usr/lib32/wine-unstable/wineserver

#ln -s /usr/lib32/wine-unstable/wineserver /usr/local/bin/wineserver

I haven't scratched anything for a long time that I'm on vacation and I'm spending a lot of time testing my new 9600GT video card. True, the 9800GTX is not what I wanted to buy, but the price of this one was temptingly low and I decided to spare the money.. I think it's a good buy. The map exceeded my expectations several times. So far, except for GTA IV, all other games at 1440x900 are running at max with AA & AF 😉 😈 The video card belongs to the company Gainward which is relatively unknown to me. The card has 512MB of DDR3 memory with 256 household bus 😎 generally good performance is 😉 The important thing is that it is actively cooled and carries on a clock, although for now I will refrain, so far the games don't start to lag at me then we'll see I can just change the bottom with one that supports SLI instead of knocking and frying the poor card. I also put Windows on because of her 7 and I can say that the gentlemen from the micro-soft have done great – they removed all idiotic things from the worm that they irritated unnecessarily, the system works stably and most- the important thing for me is to support dx10 to test the optimum on the card. As a final word I can say that 9600GT is a good and cheap solution if you decide to upgrade the old video, for me the difference was huge from 8300 (bottom) to the present 🙂

I look like a kid, I test games a lot, I read which one with which graphics and so on. I scrolled through Devil May Cry 4 great game with great graphics supports dx10 and dx9 modes according to the hardware you have 🙂 I would test to see the difference between the two versions but I forgot, maybe some day I will download it again and then I will write a static on whether dx10 makes sense 🙂

Finaly again in the world of mobile 🙂 and only in ultra mobile. I bought this a little too much jewelry Asus EEE 1000H with Linux Xsandros My EEE is a 160GB HDD 🙂 which is the optimal option for these machines at the moment. At first I thought that 10″ inch displays (254mm) it will be too small for me or something, after about 40 I know him, that there are no problems, will satisfy my needs completely. First impressions are more than good with 14% He spent about 40 minutes on the battery, which he will do roughly 5 hours of battery life достатъчно absolutely enough with similar parameters of battery life can only be praised by Apple machines. The compact weight of 1.45 kg provides comfort of carrying and use unlike before 2 days I sat on a 17″ who gave me the trouble to lift it 😉 My impressions of the Xsandros are extremely deplorable, first it comes with some tricky KDE that is so modified that it looks like a pig. Secondly, I did not see the console, third and most striking I saw a section with antivirus 😆 is already a movie, for which my antivirus is on linux. True, there are some tricks called lin viruses, but they are so far from the truth 🙂 I'm waiting for him to load like people and put something like that on him, I have not yet decided what it will be but there are enough specially adapted distros for the EEE, almost all known 😉 The nicest thing is that 1000H supports MAC OS X with a few screws it can be installed almost 100% working hackintosh. At the moment, only the lacarta does not work, but I expect to put it on soon. Windows I think this animal does not see, there is no need for such meetings 😉 it is no coincidence that I took it with a Linux version, I will not pour money into its micro-soft ones 😉 Separately, the fact that with Windows XP such a netbook is about a hundred levs more 🙂 its attachment is without problems even if you do not have an external CD / DVD reader with only one flash drive it is not a problem to install anything. So I thought to proceed and for the moment to drive without an external optical drive. For now, this is what I can write about the little one, with more experience I will share interesting things about it.

ps If you are hesitant whether to buy such a thing, it is not worth the hesitation, it is worth every lev 😉

Windows is losing popularity I came across this interesting article today while looking at IT news and so on. The truth is that the share of M $ is hellishly large, but it is obvious that people are looking for alternatives - especially mania is conquering both Europe and Bulgaria.. For example, see how many people are willing to do it hackintosh And for Linux I will not comment. Everyone who has managed to jump the barrier of another OS sees its differences… draw your own conclusions. In general, I'm writing the statics not to stock up on the bad M $ and the good Linux 🙂 it's just interesting that there is really hope at the end of the tunnel. And now something a little more interesting I played to summarize the statistics on my site to divide them into 3 branches to see what the visits are 😉 The numbers are happy

Windows 81.8%
Ubuntu Linux 17.3%
Mac OS X 0.9%

In general, Linux users are a serious number which can not help but delight my soul 🙂 The hegemony of Windows users is clear but 🙂 in the end everyone uses what is convenient but there is no way to know if there is something better when you just tried 1 😉 For every loyal Windows fan I can recommend Mac OS X a beautiful and easy to use operating system that generally does not require top knowledge except for its installation 🙂 But once installed everything will be fine

I decided to use Sunday afternoon for a little chewing 🙂 I took it off Microsoft Windows 7 32Bit Build 6801 🙂 and I let it install on my virtual machine, as well as I set aside 12GB hard disk space and 1GB RAM, Debian Sid host. In general, the installation is quite normal, as well as complete 😆 the installer has the same interface that Windows Vista uses. In general, the installation went relatively quickly, faster than the worms I installed, but not for 3 min as long as Sidux is installed on my machine 😈 Then the first login again in the familiar way on Vista asks for a name and password. And I logged in… hmmm at first glance clean vista with a wider task bar and a little better looking 🙂 on the second third and fourth too Vista is his shit. In general, I did not notice any drastic change in the folders and settings, etc. from the previous version. The vision that is the most- the insignificant stage for the assembly development of the operating system did not excite me much 🙂 The settings, etc. are made in an almost uniform way. I was unpleasantly surprised that there was no VPN support, may appear in the final version because a lot of people in jitsin use VPN networks to connect to their workplace 😉 In general, after about 10 min work managed to give me the wonderful inscription Not Responding while I was reconfiguring the IPs of the link and so I managed to spend 10 minutes then a long troubleshooting wizard started (understandably this is a beta people need to be aware of their bugs) Overall, I liked how it worked in a few very rare moments, managed to reach the limits of CPU power, which I had allocated 2.6Ghz, the frame maintained levels around 350 ~ 600MB, which I think is a lot, given that I am almost no psaukl programs, mainly explorer. I didn't see many programs in the beta, that's why it was of dubious size 2.32 GB although there is an ultimate edition. Overall a little summary the beta is quite unstable unsupported old devices like AC’97 audi emulated with the virtual bus and didn't catch it anyway 2 type of Intel-ski links. Quite cumbersome and heavy it seemed to me that although I did not try it on my normal machine I think we will not see anything who knows how much better than Windows Vista, but there is plenty of time until the final release and the boys from M $ can try 😆 🙄 😈 … Hardly
