    Geeklog Newshey all
    this is a forward of a forward, of a forward that I recieved today.
    figured the mythtv enthusiasts would like to read this.

    As mentioned tonight, the broadcast flag is back, and worse than ever.
    The Senate is currently considering telecom legislation that includes
    flags for both digital TV and radio. These flags would "signal"
    copyrighted content to the receiver, which would be mandated to read and
    obey -- preventing you from recording. Your right to fair use would not
    exist, and MythTV would not exist either -- or at least, it'd be illegal.

    Luckily, we can stop this from happening. Tomorrow, the Senate Commerce
    Committee will "mark up" the telecom bill. An amendment will be offered
    to strike the flags from the bill. One of Florida's Senators, Bill
    Nelson, sits on the committee -- make sure he hears from his constituents!

    The markup is scheduled for 2 pm tomorrow (Thursday). Please call
    tomorrow morning to save MythTV and your right to fair use.

    Sen. Bill Nelson (FL)
    (202) 224-5274

    Tell the receptionist that you are a constituent and you want to
    register a comment about legislation. Then ask Sen. Nelson to "support
    the Sununu Amendment to strike the broadcast and radio flags" in the
    Commerce telecom markup. Add something personal about MythTV, Linux,
    your rights, or innovation. Be nice :)

    For more information:

    Public Knowledge has a lot of information from the past week on their
    blog. Additionally, see this great ad from the Consumer Electronics

    Please call tomorrow. It only takes a minute, and it could save your
    future computer from becoming crippled or illegal.

    Geeklog NewsZ4CK, a must read for zaurus users, was pretty good and especially since it was completely written on a Z.
    The sequel again written by Kevin Milne, was just recently released!

      Loaded Debian SPARC on Sun Blade 150   View Printable Version 
    Friday, March 10 2006 @ 08:07 AM EST Contributed by:gregturn Views: 31853

    Geeklog NewsThe past two days have been very interesting, and exciting. I was able to load one of the Sun Blade 150 workstations in our development lab with Debian Etch. It took a lot of homework, research, and fighting with the console, but I got it done. When I found out the chipset had some flaw with DMA on the IDE controllers, and more properly how to get around it, things turned for the better. With a little more struggle, I managed to get GNOME running.

    I managed to stage a clone of our mediawiki web site there, and play with it. And by loading imagemagick (which isn't built for Solaris), I was able to start using thumbnails.

    Well, anyway, after all this, it appears we will probably shoot for an x86 platform to actually stage our site. I will be giving back this Sun Blade console so others can reload it with Solaris. We will probably get some Dell Poweredge rack server. That being the case, I was going to look at loading Ubuntu. Our development lab has Internet access, but the target environment doesn't. I know you can get an entire CD set for Debian. What about Ubuntu? I will need a CD set to walk into our closed network for set up.
