EDIT: very useful trick if you cant get wireless access for whatever reason but have a computer with a spare ethernet port that can connect to your wireless network
something everyone should learn how to do because its very useful
Only have one ethernet port which connects directly to the AP/WA thingy (technical term I know) I got. And now I know what you're talking about. Never heard it called it crossover. But then again I'm not in with networking so, that might be beyond my skill set right now.
The other thing is that I think I may have failed to fetch the libraries for stupid v8. Good god getting chromium everything it needs is a pain in the @$5 when distro makers don't include it in repos. I'm honestly surprised that openSUSE still refuses to included it in the default repos. Hell Kubuntu10.10 included it. But I guess that's the reason for the database of theirs.
On the plus side I think I found the upstream 4.6 release so I'm hoping that will free me of having mozilla's taint. Then I can source compile and install things and pretend I'm using slackware. jk.
EDIT: I think I'm recommending a skip of 11.4 for now. Seems the KDE4.6 upstream I got is still 11.3 so I'm going to give that a run. Hopefully, the 11.3 repos won't be full of sh17 like the 11.4s are. I'm just disgusted with the useless error outputs I got in 11.4 trying to get chromium to work. What's the point in having a package manager if it's not going to tell you what you're missing for dependices? If someone has a solution to getting chromium to work in 11.4 I'd love to hear it.Edited by Rookie1337 - 3/16/11 at 9:20pm
