NT-Hell installed at last

10 October 2004   |   Anil Madhavapeddy   |   tags:   |   all posts

It only took 7 days, 10 phonecalls, and 16 hours of waiting around for engineers to show up to get my NTL cable modem installed at the new flat. The hassle always seems to be getting hold of the installation guys; once they actually arrived, the process took about 15 minutes! I see why this website was set up though...

While moving all the computer kit around, I took the opportunity to upgrade my Soekris NET4521 to the latest snapshot of OpenBSD. I use the flashdist scripts modified to include a few extra things such as ntpd and symon, as well as bring it up to date with the latest snapshots. You can grab the custom kernel config NET45x1 and the distribution set.
