Re: Need to Get a free fast working vpn best one for linux?

The fastest free VPN I've found is

http://us.hotfreevpn.com/

Fast enough to watch hulu when you are outside of the states. They also have a UK version

http://uk.hotfreevpn.com/

These are through PPTP so you just add the settings to your network connection.

Think of it as a "virtual SMP" (Symmetric Multi-Processing) technology of sorts, only performed all on one ...

Re: LinuxMint 12 lisa IBM T40 bitcoin-qt

Database error??

https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/issues/809
This is a Berkeley DB version mismatch between the last and current version of bitcoin.

Re: plasma desktop broke - windows/panels dissapeared

HI Noobler

I had a similar problem, a few weeks back with the same symptoms as you described.

It turned out to be an outdated widget/plasmoid, that was crashing the plasma-desktop. Try uninstalling them one by one until you find the one responsible.

Re: LM12 - Graphic problems in wine

Try running the programs in a window.

To do this you have to configure wine by running the following command in a terminal

Code: Select all

winecfg
The wine config dialog should come up, click the graphics tab and tick "Emulate a Virtual Desktop" and choose what size you want to use.
