Menggunakan script otomatis untuk mengatur settingan network di notebook yang dipakai di lokasi yang berbeda

16 October 2008 |

Memakai Linux di notebook merupakan suatu kebanggaan tersendiri, sebab menginstallnya kadang memerlukan usaha lebih dibandingkan bila menginstall di PC desktop, sebab driver­driver Linux yang tersedia untuk hardware notebook masih relatif lebih sedikit dari PC desktop, terutama driver network card, modem, infrared port (irda), dan bluetoothnya.
