Verisign again / FYI: Synaptic.


[VeriSign spokesman Brian] O'Shaughnessy said the service has been embraced by end users. "We've seen nothing but very positive results from the Internet community," he said. "Usage is extraordinary. Both individual users and enterprises are giving very positive feedback."

Give me a break.

FYI: Synaptic

When using synaptic with apt, do not run it in the background. It will download what it needs but it won't install anything. It just stops (or stalls or freezes or locks up, whatever you want to call it).

In other words, use

# synaptic
and not
# synaptic &

That's my Linux tip for today.
