D945GLC how-to todos

* * *

Dear LJ,

IOU:

  • an explanation of why I recently bought an Intel D945GCLF Atom motherboard (short story: my laptop died spectacularly, G45-based motherboards won't hit retail channels for another two months, I can't wait that long for a new system, and I wanted a low-power standalone file server anyhow);
  • an explanation, and perhaps explanatory pictures, of why the abovementioned motherboard is currently housed in a cardboard box tied with pink wrapping ribbon;
  • how-to documents detailing how to get Damn Small Linux 4.4.2 playing nicely with..:
    1. a D-Link DGE-530T gigabit PCI network card (PCI ID 1186:4b01, rev 11);
    2. the built-in RealTek RTL8102E 10/100 network chip (PCI ID 10ec:8136, rev 02);
    3. the 82801G audio controller built into the ICH7 north bridge (PCI ID 8086:27d8, rev 01);
    4. Firefox 3;
  • news about my recent awk hackery;
  • an update on the job search.
Current Mood:

Also a response about dinner. Although maybe not to all of LJ.
