HP-UX patch structure

Saturday, April 12th, 2008

Hunting patches for HP-UX is not a simple task. Patch IDs are different for newer versions of the same patch, meaning that a newer version of a patch will have no meaningful connection to the previous version of that patch.

I have discovered that the best option is to track the patch is by finding out what is the subsystem which has been fixed by its predecessor, and searching for this subsystem in this HP-UX patch search engine or in this entire list here.

Good luck.

Fujitsu special keys

Wednesday, July 20th, 2005

Last night, after I finished writing the previous entry, I was looking for Fujitsu & Linux related sites, for somewhat more information about my modem.

I found out a site, which reminded me of the Fujitsu special keys which I’ve never used nor managed to setup. Well, the version the site pointed at was old, and I could not compile it, however, the newer version (courtasy of google) of fjkeys and apanel allowed me to finally, for the first time, to comile and insert this module. I was so surprised to find out that there was one led of which I never knew.

Nothing is perfect, of course. I have tons of message such as this:

i2c_adapter i2c-0: Error: command never completed

but besides that (which does not damage nor slow down my suspend/resume), all seems to work. Good. This blog existance (no readers so far, and still no search engine index) pushed me towards solving some of my problems, and towards a better laptop-wise life.

Another set of reasons are that it’s damn hot in the house (but in the balcony it’s cooler, and there’s some wind), and that I have a new set of two batteries (Extended primary battery, and the modular bay battery) which allow me up to 8-9 hours of work. Under high loads, this time tends to get shorter, but not less than 5 hours or so. Cool.
