Couple of questions...
(1) if i pick a video mode at boot which has a nonstandard
(!=25) number of lines, it gets set back to 25 during boot (just
after mounting user filesystems, just before turning on quotas) -
anyone have any idea on this one? Redhat 5.2 system, very
recently installed, S3 video card. Interestingly the number of
columns is left alone, so if I e.g. select 132x50 at boot it
becomes 132x25.... very strange.
(2) Anyone going to the chaos computer club event in Berlin in
August? ( http://www.ccc.de )
(3) anyone have any experiences, good or bad, with 3com
combined modem/ethernet pcmcia cards under linux? Model
number I've been offered cheap (trade promotion / discount) is
3ccfem556b-eu. I've also been offered 3cxfe575bt or a pcmcia
winmodem for the same price. The hardware compatibility list
suggests the ethernet-only card is supported quite well but
ymmv a lot for the combined card...
(4) Anyone have any idea why download speeds are crap on
my machine? Using a diamond supra 56k modem which goes
like the clappers on windows without any initialisation strings, I
never seem to get over 1k/sec (this applies to both indigo and
tinet, serial port at 115200 in both cases).
