Acer Aspire One hosts file

On the Acer Aspire One Linux (Linpus) version, the /etc/hosts file is restored to its original state on each restart. After much fustrating googling, I finally gave up and tried to locate where in the startup the file is restored. The causing script is /etc/rc.d/rc.5 - Modify this if you want to customize the hosts file.

Problems installing anjuta on Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon

I had problems getting Anjuta installed on my Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon. Synaptic tried to install a version with 3 broken dependencies, but forcing the version to 2:2.2.0-1ubuntu2 did the trick:

sudo apt-get install anjuta=2:2.2.0-1ubuntu2 anjuta-common=2:2.2.0-1ubuntu2
