I got a little problem after upgrading my Fujitsu’s Ubuntu 8.10 to 9.04, I removed some of the kernel files and directory by hand some time ago, and it turned back as a problem after the upgrading was complete. To make it short, I can not update anything before the broken dependencies is fixed, but I can’t fix the broken dependencies because all the files were already manually deleted by me. Lucky me the Synaptic Package Manager list the directories and files that were deleted, so here’s what I’ve done

1. Created all the directories with mkdir
mkdir -p /lib/modules/2.6.27-7-generic/volatile/

2. Created all the files with touch
touch /boot/System.map-2.6.27-7-generic
touch /boot/initrd.img-2.6.27-7-generic

3. Fixing it with
sudo aptitude -f remove

And finally I can use the Update Manager again.

When I was on Junior High School, I found one interesting book wrote by Erich von Daniken, there are many amazing stories (or fact) there, and one was the Piri Reis Map, the stories of this map really amazed me (imagine a Junior High School boy – knowing the fact that someone in ancient era already map the world from a high attitude), I was reading about an ancient computer link posting on facebook made by special someone (which covered on Erich’s book too) and suddenly a flash of Piri Reis Map comes to my mind, I made a quick googling and found this interesting link: Piri Reis Map

SurfNet asked me to block youtube (youtube was taking almost if not all bandwidth in our cybercafe said the owner), after some research I found that an iptables rules can help me, and since youtube owned all 208.65.153.x subnets it make things easier, so here it is:

/sbin/iptables -A OUTPUT -d 208.65.153.0/24 -j DROP
/sbin/iptables -A FORWARD -d 208.65.153.0/24 -j DROP
