Gobi7: Day 6 (part three)

So this is the day of trial I guess. I just plugged in my Kensington bluetooth dongle to the Gobi7 and then flipped on my bt keyboard... and it works likes a dream. So right now I have the bt keyboard going along with the external mouse.

Update on the built in minibrowser. Word is that that is coming in some new firmware and should be out in beta soon. I was informed that when it is ready I would be able to get a copy and give it a whirl so that testing will be on hold until then.

Tomorrows testing is going to be with the smart card, tonight I am going to log out of my current non-card session.

For what it's worth.

Gobi7: Day 6 (part duex)

Oh success finally, I was able to connect to our east vpn server... I have no idea what I change, I did retype in all the values so I can only venture that I had some value fat fingered. Thanks also to the three guys on the inside that are letting me bounce my questions off.

For what it's worth.

Gobi7: Day 6

So today was a chance to try out an external monitor connected to the Gobi7. In plugging in th monitor while hot (ie up and running session) the external monitor is a mirror of the laptop screen. So I wondered what happened if connected on a cold boot and the same mirroring happens. I was thinking that this is what would happen other than changing up the X session that is running. So I would venture to guess this is the behavior and not be able to create xinerama.

I also took the first pass at switching back to the vpn east server... no joy. I need to find someone in house now that can tell me

  1. if I have the correct ip for the server
  2. what is different in the config of east and sfbay

For what it's worth.
