you don't need to restart linux,

just ctrl-alt-backspace, wait for the swap to be annihilated & re-login

The ~200 Line Linux Kernel Patch That Does Wonders

lethalwp Re:Compiling the kernel (603 comments)

Hey! i was in that case, but later: used a 486 (i think it was DX2-66Mhz?) as router with dialup, when it wasn't connected it acted as a BBS

So it was not "on demand" internet, but still ppp connection, with a 14k4 modem (got one of those to replace a 2400bauds, that was a real pita =) )

Anyway, i didn't know enough of linux those days, and thought it was required to recompile the kernel (iirc it was a redhat 5), to enable the gateway/routing feature.

All i can say: after 24H of compile, you notice you forgot some option
and there you go again for another 24H....

Now i've grown up & live with a standard kernel, only compile it when really needed for debugging purposes or so

I have a Samsung Galaxy S for 2 weeks, experienced the same problem, it happened when receiving an incomming call while ending the previous one, after that, couldn't hear anything through the hear-speaker until reboot.

Sony Update Bricks Playstations

lethalwp Re:Haven't Installed it (510 comments)

It's fine if you want to play games. And the update is required if you want to play online games.

the update is not required to play online games, there are several ways to bypass the firmware check, and it's quite easy to do actually (mainly changing the dns server for the ps3)

just google for it if you need it

"Install Other OS" Feature Removed From the PS3

lethalwp Re:what are the security concerns? (739 comments)

That's where the hack comes in: it breaks the hypervisor and give you access to all of the ps3.

The only thing being done as today is to flash a a new 'theme' in the original flash of the ps3 through the other os.

Ubisoft's New DRM Cracked In One Day

lethalwp Re:It only takes one. (678 comments)

would you do the same thing to ask for games that run under linux?

This is nonsense, $$$ is the mighty word, no letters/mails will change that. But in the case of linux, it's even worse: they don't dare/invest porting games to linux, and don't talk to me about games that are 5 years old.

In the mean time, i got a ps3, never played & bought so many games these last 2 years than in my whole life.

lethalwp Re:Google must be a treasure trove... (127 comments)

I'm trying to find my treasure girl using google maps, but either:
  - the area isn't covered by high definition
  - even the 'high res' isn't suffisent to wacht ppl's face
  - not enough updates, no "earth movie"
  - still didn't found a infrared option to see what ppl are doing at night through the roofs!
