All the ones I've tried recently have been, sans Debian ( had to enable 32bit on that one ).

There's two different things here. What Shrak is talking about is ISOs that ship both i686 and AMD64 packages for install. What you're talking about is additional repositories for AMD64 systems that pull lib32 libraries so that 32bit apps can use 32bit APIs rather than ISOs that have both a 32bit and 64bit OS.

So then why would you enable 32-bit on Debian for the ISO? The comment seems to make more sense in terms of multi-arch, but I'm confused, please explain.

No idea. You'll need to ask Shrak that.

A non-trolly monologue about the last 2 months I've ran Windows as my primary OS:
I've never been one to take a working ArchLinux desktop for granted, since a lazy pacman -Suy can sometimes be enough to break the system. However I'm really missing the convenience of searching and pulling packages from a repo. Just this evening, I wanted to install a Wake-on-LAN client quickly just to test if WoL was working correctly on one of my media centres, then it dawned on my that I'd have to navigate my way around Google and 3rd party websites, then manually download and install the executable and then find where the damn icon has landed. By which point I know I'll lose all interest in what I was going to do to begin with. So I just gave up and went on OCN instead laugher.gif

Sadly that's not the first time something so easy has seemed like such hard work. Last week I needed to pull a few files off my work desktop, so I VPN'ed in and went to mount my home directory via sshfs (works PC is running Arch), then I remembered that I'm running Windows on this laptop - damn. I'm told there is an sshfs client for Windows, but it just seemed quicker and more convenient for Windows if I ssh'ed into my workstation and set samba up.

It just feels like every time I want to do something simple, I end up having to jump through unnecessary hoops. I can't even do simple things like run a quick system update in the background while I'm working. No, instead I have to time the bloody thing around when I'm least likely to need my laptop and then sit through half an hour of blank screens with a spinning circle (and that's the lesser of two evils because at least this way I'm in control of the updates - so I don't have that annoying "Windows is installing updates" screen when I need to power the laptop up urgently).

I've disliked Windows since XP; most people seemed to love it, but I hated it from day one. However I've always thought of Windows as a necessary evil, one that I could jump into as and when I needed to. But this last couple of months has revealed a fact that even I hadn't realised until now; I never use Windows normally, or in fact nearly ever. I use it so infrequently that I just cannot get my head around how to use it. I'm so stuck in the Linux (and UNIX) mindset, that Windows seems utterly backwards to me.

This is how Windows users must feel about Linux when they use it for the 1st time. They must feel completely alienated because they keep trying to use the PC the way how they've learned how to -the way how they've always done- and Linux just works differently. Because I'm having the same problem with Windows. I keep trying to do simple Linuxisms in Windows and feeling a small part of me die every time I realise that Windows functions differently.

The only reason I've stuck to Windows this long was because I managed to blow up my old laptop, so I've had to use my work laptop instead (they did give me the option of installing Linux on that as well, but since I'm running Linux on my workstation as well, it made sense to keep Windows on one system in case of emergencies as many enterprise solutions have Windows-only management tools mad.gif). But thankfully I get paid on Monday; and the first thing I'm going to do is order a new laptop so I can get back to normality. biggrin.gif

tl;dr: It's a monologue, I need to get a blog.

Don't mind my non-sense, it's been a long month for me, I don't much make sense to myself half the time...

Thought you had one? Or at least a website tongue.gif

And what's ever come of this forum project you mentioned way back?

Yeah I do have a website, but I'm reluctant to put anything on there until I've finished writing the new engine (which is the forum project I mentioned) and I've put the development of that has been glacial lately frown.gif

Anyone here know how to work pfSense? I know, I know. It's FreeBSD based.

I have a network printer (Brother 8460N) that until the switch to pfSense, worked flawlessly. Since the switch to pfSense, I can ping it, it's in the DHCP table, but I can't send any print jobs to it. What gives?


Also, an interesting twist... When I reboot the pfSense box, it pushes the print jobs on to the printer. It's getting stuck somewhere, and it's probably firewall related. I just don't know what.

In fact the name of this club was deliberately chosen to incorporate BSD as well as Linux .

Ive not used pfsense specifically though

I figured it out... doh.gif



I had to allow NAT-PMP mapping.


EDIT: Here's the icing on the cake. I have to wait for the print job to clear from the pfSense box before accessing the internet again. It just bogs down the box that much. It may have something to do with the hardware I'm using.


P3-800Mhz, 512MB non-ECC RDRAM, 12GB HDD, and some really old school 10/100 NICs.



EDIT 2: My wife can't print from her laptop that's connecting wirelessly. BAH!

EDIT 3: Had to force a DNS override to get it to work.
