Today Ubuntu 5.10 was released – give it a try if you are looking for a modern, stable, good looking linux desktop distribution
Today Eclipse 3.1.1 was released. It contains 263 bug fixes – my favorite one is that auto completion works in the Display view again while debugging.
I wanted to improve the resolution of the console on a linux server. After reading some forums and HOWTO’s I found out that it’s very easy, you just have to add
vga=MODEto your kernel parameters – where MODE stands for the desired screen resolution.The possible screen resolultions are listet here. These values are hexadecimal so
vga=791stands for 1024×768 and 16 Bit Colors (0×317).
