    Ika Musume Wallpaper For Arch Linux 

    Inspired by: http://m4he.deviantart.com/art/Ika-chan-invades-my-Arch-Linux-253854891

    You know what grinds my gears? When someone posts in-use wallpaper without sources. It doesn’t even have to be the wallpaper itself, but at least provide a working link! Sheesh!

    Well, I’ve done one better. Just want the wallpaper? Download the PNGs. Want to to move Ika Musume around, use a different background, or replace the Arch logo with another Linux distro’s logo? Download the XCF and have at it.

    Linux And Flaky ATL1C Support 

    Linux Logo Here’s something I thought I’d never see — the day that wired networking in Linux could ever be considered anything less than “it just works.”

    I recently purchased a laptop (Toshiba Satellite C655D-S5518 to be precise) and had trouble out of the gate after installing Arch Linux.  The computer would seem to hang whenever the network was involved.  (E.g., running netcfg, networkmanager, or the ip command.)  I assumed that it was wireless support that was causing the headaches, so I ran hwinfo --netcard | grep "Modules\|File" to find the kernel modules related to my networking devices.

    Device Modules: "atl1c"
    Device File: eth0
    Driver Modules: "rtl8192ce"
    Device File: wlan0

    I blacklisted rtl8192ce but that didn’t solve my problem.  (More …)

      I had exactly the same problem with atl1c it caused the console to freeze when the cable was unpluged,do you know the maintainer of this driver,so we can file a bug report,the problem is worse with a 3.4 kernel.
      Linux Jesse 3.4.0 #2 SMP Wed May 30 09:01:55 EST 2012 x86_64 GNU/Linux

      I really need to upgrade my kernel before submitting a bug,but scanning round it seems the bug is still there as of current kernel release.

        Unfortunately I do not. Which also means I do not know how much work is going into the driver. If there’s a dedicated team, then they just need time. If it’s a single person, he could probably use some help even it’s nothing more than yet another environment in which to see how the driver code behaves. Just be prepared that this might entail setting up a debug environment (e.g. compiling and using a kernel that spits out debug symbols, etc.). If you can code, all the better. 🙂

        Either way, as the driver is listed as EXPERIMENTAL, it’ll do no good to file normal bug reports as the people behind this driver already know that it is not 100%.

      As of Aug 12, 2013 this atl1c bug is affecting my Acer V3-771G laptop running Kubuntu 12.04.2 with all updates. On my system it shows up as a random disconnect and reconnect. Most of the time the reconnect is almost immediately, but sometimes it may take as much as 30 seconds. I switched from NetworkManager to WICD and the problem remains, but perhaps not as frequent. From once every 5 minutes to once every 10 minutes. There is NO messages indicating the disconnect & reconnect in any system log.
      I am using the 3.8.0-27-generic kernel.

    Problems With Arch Package Signing 

    Arch Linux LogoUpdate: This was all addressed on 2012-06-17 with the introduction of the archlinux-keyring package and the pacman-key --populate archlinux command.

    Arch Linux finally has package signing. However, if you follow the directions blindly, you may miss important details. This will usually lead to error messages about keys being of marginal trust or no trust at all.

    The code posted on Arch’s wiki page for pacman-key gives you the code you need to use the five main keys used to sign everything else.

    for key in FFF979E7 CDFD6BB0 4C7EA887 6AC6A4C2 824B18E8; do
         pacman-key --recv-keys $key
         pacman-key --lsign-key $key
         printf 'trust\n3\nquit\n' | gpg --homedir /etc/pacman.d/gnupg/ \
             --no-permission-warning --command-fd 0 --edit-key $key

    But if you’re not paying attention, you’ll miss the fact that some keys failed to import due to server issues.

    Arch Update Notifications Using Cron 

    Arch Linux LogoOne of the great things about Arch is its hands-off approach and KISS approach. Unfortunately, that can also be one of its greatest killjoys.

    Update notifications fall victim to this approach. If you’re left to build an Arch system to your own accord, how can the Arch devs know what will work on your system and what won’t? Therefore, instead of worrying about GNOME vs KDE vs Any Other Desktop Environment (that is, if you’re running a GUI at all) and possibly forcing dependencies you don’t want, no package management system will ever be officially supported by Arch outside of pacman.
