We will not go down – Song For Gaza

WE WILL NOT GO DOWN (Song for Gaza)
(Composed by Michael Heart)
Copyright 2009

A blinding flash of white light
Lit up the sky over Gaza tonight
People running for cover
Not knowing whether they’re dead or alive

They came with their tanks and their planes
With ravaging fiery flames
And nothing remains
Just a voice rising up in the smoky haze

We will not go down
In the night, without a fight
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
But our spirit will never die
We will not go down
In Gaza tonight

Women and children alike
Murdered and massacred night after night
While the so-called leaders of countries afar
Debated on who’s wrong or right

But their powerless words were in vain
And the bombs fell down like acid rain
But through the tears and the blood and the pain
You can still hear that voice through the smoky haze

We will not go down
In the night, without a fight
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
But our spirit will never die
We will not go down
In Gaza tonight

Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex in Thinkpad T61

leave a comment »

Just a week ago, i bought Lenovo Thinkpad T61 as a replacement for my shiny Compaq Pressario V3103 that already accompany me faithfully for the last 2 years and 2 months. This compaq pressario then goes to my wife.
The exact model for the Thinkpad was T61 7664-A26 with following specifications :

Intel® Core™2 Duo processor T8300 (2.4GHz, 800 MHz, 3MB L2 Cache)
DOS
1024MB (1×1024)
160GB (5400rpm)
DVD Recordable
nVidia Quadro NVS 140M 128MB discrete
14.1″ WXGA+
Intel® PRO/1000 Gigabit LAN
Intel® PRO/Wireless 4965 agn, Bluetooth
WebCam
6-cell Battery
3-year Parts, Labour & Customer Carry-in Limited International Warranty

Actually i didn’t bought it directly since i was in Egypt and things quite old here, I can’t find a good laptop with a good price compared to Indonesia. So i ask for a help from a friend of mine to bought it from Indonesia and he carry it to egypt since he will get a job here for a couple of months.
What i’m surprised is in the formal specs in lenovo website, for this model, there is no Windows Pre-Installed, but in my case i have Windows Vista Basic.
But when it come here, I make the Hard Disk Clean and install Intrepid Ibex in it.

There are so many resources about Linux in Thinkpad. There is Thinkwiki and Linux ThinkPad Mailing List. We can get many assistance from these resources.

Mostly all the device is working out of the box using Intrepid Ibex, i can mentioned it below.

1. Sound
2. TouchPad
3. WebCam
4. Networking, both WiFi and Ethernet
5. NVidia Graphics Card, even if we want to enable compiz we need to activate restricted driver from NVidia ( but it is already exist in Ubuntu Repository ).
6. Thinkpad Button & Function keys ( Adjust Brightness, Lock Screen, Toggle ThinkLight )

Some Stuffs need further effort to make it work.
1. FingerPrint ( can be used for GDM & sudo authentication ).
2. ACPI ( Battery , Fan )
3. HDAPS

Things doesn’t work until now:
Suspend & Hibernate ( i think because of Nvidia Issue ).

Many things can be explore in this ThinkPad, not like any other notebook, it has many hardware feature that is very interesting. Some of them can be easily activated in linux , and some is difficult (need a major hack involving pacthing the kernel , like HDAPS).
Hopefully, in the next releases of Ubuntu 9.04, we will get everything out of the Box 😀

Start XAMPP at boot – Ubuntu way

with 6 comments

I Installed XAMPP inside Ubuntu JeOS in Virtual Box. Using this XAMPP, i create a blog to manage all note & tips my work that can’t be posted in public because of proprietary reason.
This lightweight JeOS is only having Operating System without any Graphical User Interface and i need to start XAMPP service automatically at start up of the VM. So, here i go.

( I installed XAMPP in /opt . Full path of lampp binary is /opt/lampp/lampp )

1. Create an init script in /etc/init.d/

cd /etc/init.d/
sudo vi lampp
copy and paste this lines:
#!/bin/bash
/opt/lampp/lampp start

2. Use update-rc.d to install init scripts to all runlevel.

sudo update-rc.d lampp defaults

In the next restart, XAMPP will automatically started. We can verify using this command.

user@jeos$ ps -ef | grep lampp
root      3842     1  0 20:42 ?        00:00:00 /opt/lampp/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL -DPHP5
root      3869     1  0 20:42 ?        00:00:00 /bin/sh /opt/lampp/bin/mysqld_safe –datadir=/opt/lampp/var/mysql –pid-file=/opt/lampp/var/mysql/jeos.pid
nobody    3903  3842  0 20:42 ?        00:00:00 /opt/lampp/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL -DPHP5
nobody    3923  3869  0 20:42 ?        00:00:01 /opt/lampp/sbin/mysqld –basedir=/opt/lampp –datadir=/opt/lampp/var/mysql –user=nobody –pid-file=/opt/lampp/var/mysql/jeos.pid –skip-external-locking –port=3306 –socket=/opt/lampp/var/mysql/mysql.sock
nobody    3929  3842  0 20:42 ?        00:00:00 /opt/lampp/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL -DPHP5
nobody    3930  3842  0 20:42 ?        00:00:00 /opt/lampp/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL -DPHP5
nobody    3931  3842  0 20:42 ?        00:00:00 /opt/lampp/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL -DPHP5
nobody    3932  3842  0 20:42 ?        00:00:00 /opt/lampp/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL -DPHP5
nobody    3933  3842  0 20:42 ?        00:00:00 /opt/lampp/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL -DPHP5
nobody    3957  3842  0 20:42 ?        00:00:00 /opt/lampp/bin/httpd -k start -DSSL -DPHP5

we can enhanced the startup script to accept argument like start, stop, restart.
