    I am thinking of buying this little guy for at work.
    Stress Penguin
    Cute little mascot, then he can sit next to my linux machine and when anyone wants help fixing their Windows machine, I can redirect them to Tux. :D

    Speaking of work, I've been unwell since Wednesday..... perhaps some bad valentines cooking? So, I opted to work from home, which seemed to confuse a few of my work buddies.....

    "err, how can you work from home without your laptop mate?", "what do you mean you can do your work from home, your laptop is on your desk?"

    to which, my reply seemed to confuse them.... a lot.

    "not a problem, VPN Into work, ssh with X window forwarding, don't forget to use aes128-ctr cipher for best performance".

    Hello work laptop, hello nautilus, hello sublime, hello picocom, hello all my code..... hello being able to work just as effectively from my home PC as if I was at work......

    Pretty sure you can't do that on Windows..... well, I suppose Windows users do have LogMeIn :whistling:

    I would predict that if people really log what they do on a pc, it would result in mainly surfing and maybe word processing for a lot of them and if you broke in to their houses at night deleted windows and installed Linux with win10 theme, they would never know, unless they asked why their pc had suddenly got quicker lol

    The install process could have a code name of "Tux it in"

    old thread alert

    I've been using Ubuntu since I accidentally deleted windoze off my old laptop about 9 years ago,
    a guy at work said he'd sort it and gave it back to me with Ubuntu on, and it just works, and I know NOTHING about computers,,,,,,
    I now have a few different versions on my computers, and have Kali on a 3way boot on one of them, thats a scary OS when you realise what even a numpty like me can do with it.....

    any linux dorks who want a little challenge to help me out, please do so


    in trying to run openvpn on my xgemma i was getting an error message:

    ERROR: Cannot open TUN/TAP dev /dev/net/tun: No such file or directory (errno=2)

    I solved this using the follwing commands:

    cd /sbin

    modprobe tun


    no my problem is that i have to connect to my box via my pc and enter these commands everytime i want to use my vpn.

    i tried to put the following two line script saved as a .sh in my init.d folder

    cd /sbin
    modprobe tun

    but nothing...

    can anyone come up with a workable script that will automate the commands for me.

    help defo needed

    Hi thanks.

    I imagine that was the problem.

    I managed to solve the general problem via other means however.

    Cheers !
