Hey! Checkout my Ubuntu 8.04 Desktop

I'd modified my Ubuntu Hardy Heron Desktop to look and behave like Mac OSX Leopard. I installed Compiz Fusion for cutting edge 3D effects, Avant Window Navigator and Mac4Lin. Well, who needs Vista and Mac now?
This is a wonderful operating system. Its free, stable, secure and its better than Vista or Mac. So why should I waste money on an expensive, yet worthless piece of crap, when there is a free alternative?

How to Create Self-signed SSL Certifcate using OpenSSL in Debian Etch and Ubuntu 8.04

What is SSL?

Secure Sockets Layer is an application-level protocol which was developed by the Netscape Corporation for the purpose of transmitting sensitive information, such as Credit Card details, via the Internet. SSL works by using a private key to encrypt data transferred over the SSL-enabled connection, thus thwarting eavesdropping of the information. The most popular use of SSL is in conjunction with web browsing (using the HTTP protocol), but many network applications can benefit from using SSL. By convention, URLs that require an SSL connection start with https: instead of http:.

Howto build a Wifi Hotspot using Chillispot and Debian Etch

This is a step by step tutorial how to build a Wifi Hotspot using Chillispot and Debian GNU/Linux.

Configure your NIC

You need at least two network interface cards to make the chillispot working. Install Debian GNU/Linux and configure the ip address of your network cards.

vi /etc/network/interfaces

Your network card configuration should be look like this:

# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
    address 192.168.0.2
    netmask 255.255.255.0
    gateway 192.168.0.1

eth0 (WAN) IP Address assigned by your ISP
eth1 (LAN) no need to assign IP Address.

We don't need to configure eth1 since Chillispot takes care for the role of IP Address assignment using its own DHCP.

Edit your /etc/resolv.conf file and add the ip address of your DNS server.

vi /etc/resolv.conf

Your resolv.conf file should look like this:

nameserver 10.0.0.1
nameserver 10.0.0.2

Installing Chillispot

To install chillispot on your Debian machine, type this command:

apt-get install apache2 ssl-cert mysql-client mysql-server chillispot freeradius freeradius-mysql

This will install Apache, MySQL, Chillispot and FreeRadius. After the installation an ncurses-based configuration menu will appear.
