@Mindbender, could you post an MD5 for the file?
There's one here, which is what I got from my download:

Somewhere around there's a driver for the LED(s).  If you set this to "on" or "heartbeat" presumably it would go off on shutdown?

Don't you already know the services running on your network?

If hardware clocks were accurate no-one would have written ntp.
30ppm isn't much.  Far better than my typing skills.

The other way to do it, which occurred to me later and is what I do for the CompactFlash card on my Asus wl500g, is to shut the system down, take out the card and fsck it on another Linux system.

Whoopee do!  My shipping status has changed to "Shipped via FedEx International" this evening!  Ordered 27 June (well - it was for me, but GT's date has the 26th, and they shipped it in the morning).

You're both missing the point.  Use emacs  Smiley.
428  General Category / General Discussion / Re: /etc/rc.local not getting run? on: August 05, 2009, 04:55:26 PM
But, if you are setting the hardware clock it presumably has one.  Why would you want to set it everytime?  Why not read from it to get the time first, rather than hardwire January 2009?
The time to set it is on shutdown. And every hour with a cron job (to cover crashes, which don't have a shutdown).

The "usual" thing to do is to give forcefsck as an additonal boot parameter (or create a /forcefsck file before rebooting). At least it s for RedHat and Mandriva. Have a look in yor /etc/.rc.sysinit file.  It will then fsck all disk mounted at boot time, including the root partition (but if it changes anything there it will reboot immediately afterwards).

You may not want to run that as is anyway.  It's going to set the system time to a fixed time (18:00, Jan 26, 2009), and then set the hardware clock based on that.  Seems a very strange thing for a boot script to be doing.

Your problem is not unique.
This just showed up on slashdot (haven't read any of it beyond the intro, yet...)

432  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: Problem with /dev/random ? on: August 01, 2009, 04:29:42 PM
There is this Entropy Gathering Daemon, which might enable you to gather sufficient randomness?

Perhaps there's hope for my June 26 order seeing progress shortly, then.

On the subject of response to mails I reported yesterday that their website had no horizontal scroll bar in Firefox, but did in IE.  A bit annoying when the LOGIN button is on the R/h side (or, in my case, underneath the bezel  Sad ).  Pointed out that it was caused by "overflow: -moz-scrollbars-vertical; " in the style sheet.  I had a reply back today - and it's fixed!
434  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: Problem with /dev/random ? on: July 31, 2009, 03:28:16 PM
Now, the next questions are why is it empty, and how can I change that?..
You could try using /dev/urandom, which won't block (but won't be "as random" if not being fed enough randomness.
435  General Category / General Discussion / Re: fsck / never in fstab? on: July 29, 2009, 04:42:12 PM
They're all either kernel-based (sysfs, proc), or built-from-scratch-at-boot (tmpfs).
Expect /, which is rootfs.  But I think that is built at boot time too? (I'm sure someone will correct me if wrong).
So there's no point fsck'ing them as they all only just been created.
