in Thunderbird's prefs.js (of course put in the correct path to your firefox).
1. Download the JDK which you want from http://java.sun.comActually this procedure is able to apply also on the JRE )
2. You need these packages: java-package, fakeroot (install them -> apt-get install java-package fakeroot
3. Now we make a debian package from the JDK installation package by running this -> fakeroot make-jpkg jdk-1_5_0_04-linux-i586.bin (of cource you are able to do this with any jdk package)
4. Now we install the created debian package -> dpkg -i sun-j2re1.5_1.5.0+update04_i386.deb (you have to be a root to do this)
5. Now you have your choosen jdk installed as a system default. Relogin now.
6. Check the functionality -> java -version
#!/bin/bash echo "Greetings from "$(uname -n) exit 02. Execute this script on a remote machine by running this:
cat simple.sh | ssh user@remote /bin/bashYou should see this output:
Greetings from remoteIt's unbelievably simple isn't it ? You send content of the script file through the pipe to a remote machine on which you connect via ssh and where you run the bash in which you execute the script that come from your computer . Due to these nice features i do really love unix
- press CTRL+ALT+F1 (you has moved into the text mode but X server still running -> you can switch back by pressing ALT+F7/8)
- now login as root (use command "su" )
- move into the runlevel 3 -> run command "init 3 (the X server will be switched off)
- run the nVidia installer -> run the downloaded file -> "sh [downloaded-file]"
- pass through the installer (maybe you will need the kernel pre-compiled headers -> for this use google )
- now the nvidia kernel module is installed
- edit your XFree/XOrg config file -> for XFree edit the /etc/X11/XF86Config and for XOrg edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf (which X server you are using you can find out by running this command "X -version") and in this file you have to change the line where the video driver is specified. Mostly the video device section seems like this:
Section "Device" BoardName "name of your card" BusID "1:0:0" Driver "nv" Identifier "Device" Screen 0 Option "Rotate" "off" VendorName "NVidia" EndSectionSo you have to change the line Driver "nv" for Driver "nvidia".
- now restart the computer by running command "reboot" or if you don't want to restart load the module into kernel by running command "modprobe nvidia" and than back into the runlevel 5 by running command "init 5".
- now you have the nVidia drivers running and you can avail the advantages of OpenGl or Direct3D. For settings use the nvidia-settings utility (you can get it from here). Enjoy it !
