#107358 wifi connected but cant connect to the internet

Posted by Rongxiang LIN on 03 December 2017 - 03:51 AM

Hi I have a connection on anotherr wifi network that was set up a couple of years ago downstairs. The issue may relate to adding a new wifi network upstairs this morning. I have connectivity then go to midori and It defaults to a bodhi guidance page regarding connecting to the internet. When I try to serarch it says theres no connection to the net. Regards D

For nobody in particular, some home networking terminologies since internet works like water irrigation:

  • The source of your internet connection is known as your modem. In case of a working internet connection, any decent Ethernet cable should be capable of connecting a Linux box with the modem hence enabling internet access.
  • The source of your wifi signal is known as your router. Assuming that the modem is a separate device and works, the router collects via an Ethernet cable the internet signals from the modem when directly connected, and the router also is cable of connecting a Linux box via any Ethernet cable.
  • In some cases when building premises are too huge, some administrators configure what is known as repeaters. Repeaters are typically routers whether wifi or not, and they can make use of either Ethernet cables or wifi signals in extending the internet range that begins from a primary modem.

Shall stop here at this point as the above descriptions this far barely points out where the pain point might actually reside.

Shall we mark this as answered, perhaps..

#106794 Not Software Request

Posted by Rongxiang LIN on 02 October 2017 - 01:20 PM

Hi Jeff and Team once again,


This is my fifth or sixth year exploring Bodhi Linux and sensitive money matters aside, I am thankful of my time here and still prefer keeping a low profile. I felt obliged to contribute to this community moving forward in monetary terms by affording a paid membership even though I have gone back to using Microsoft Windows after completing some key modules of my M.Divinity course in Buddhism. Monasticism is not my cup of tea, but I needed to take some moral precepts after all, this year with a Korean lineage. Intuitively, it is a voluntary effort on my end to take sides with South Korea - not really bodhi, but - in case the DMZ breaks out during my lifetime i.e. I needed to take precepts and study bodhi, not exactly become a Master of ministering followers.


As my good degree qualifies me to complete my PhD, this quarter I have applied for two programmes in Information Studies and / or Computational Science, possibly with a sponsorship. Even though I was a programming geek during my teenager years, as I age I can hardly code anything anything more than what comes off my memory, which means even though my ideal was to establish either Bodhi Linux, Moksha or a supplementary feature as my primary research effort, my point is that I will build a teaching curriculum along the way for my local university syllabus potentially that revolves around Bodhi Linux. For instance, if I am admitted in the PhD in Information Systems, along the way if a masters coursework is necessary I will be building some tutorials and orientations on Youtube or social media as well as tidying up the Wiki that are basically what we were talking about sometime back. If it were research, my gut feel is that whatever is on GNOME or KDE4 can be installed on Moksha too, inventing the wheel is the last thing on my mind usually. Ultimately, I may check out some bodhi sources from Git and publish a couple of research papers on Bodhi here in Singapore mainly to keep the project savvy, while also paying for my USB stick with a subscription membership.


This is something longed to do since Bodhi 2.4.0 but it took me five years (more like eight) because I wanted to go beyond carnism voluntarily and completely launch the 84000.co Tibetan Kangyur whilst studying the Mahayana till Access to Insight libraries many of which have since been preserved as a legacy database as well as on Git.


My fantasy is seeing Bodhi Linux being used in applied agrotechnology, but I am quite clueless about going about it all. May let serendipity take over.

#106780 Midori browser

Posted by Rongxiang LIN on 28 September 2017 - 04:54 AM

I quite like Midori. :) In fact, this is a pain point because I ever considered doing my own cross platform browser on Xamarin Mono as Midori was too light for Facebook & Youtube while Firefox was too "aged" for new ideas, I got stuck exploring Vivaldi and Opera and Yandex then at a certain juncture I forgot all about it until this thread revived this old affliction.

#106753 Bodhi ranking

Posted by Rongxiang LIN on 22 September 2017 - 04:03 PM

Wayland imho is a bottleneck where Enlightenment inspired Linux distributions are concerned, which is why imho it has not been a bad idea that Jeff got started with Moksha sometime back.


My take on ranking matters.. eight worldly winds: with praise comes blame, with success comes failure, with pleasure comes pain, with victory comes defeat. Take ladders with a pinch of salt perhaps, and enjoy the good natured linux community here. :wub:

#105732 Jobs and stuff

Posted by Rongxiang LIN on 19 July 2017 - 03:56 AM

Hello friends,

I was just wondering, what do you people do for a living? I just started working as a junior .NET developer(oh the irony).

What's your current position, do you like it and would you rather be doing something else? If you don't wanna answer any questions, that's fine too :)

I farm. :) Before I started farming, I was a solutions consultant at Fujitsu Asia, and briefly an on-demand engineer at IT startups too. Am doing a M.Divinity in Buddhist Ministry this year.

Agree with both the above. :)

#105463 So Far harvest season has been extremely good

Posted by Rongxiang LIN on 04 July 2017 - 03:29 AM

Glad hearing. We spent a fair amount of effort experimenting with micro greens, it made sense to the rest but not really to me, and only in the recent weeks did we decide that we would go back planting what offers bigger leaves and hence more filling in our tummies. Had some home grown vegetables as a soup with anchovies this week too, helps with the digestion when we eat less meat. ^_^

Thanks Bodhi Linux in making the start possible. Dedicate any successes and merits to all benefactors and debtors alike. Needn't reply.

#105342 So Far harvest season has been extremely good

Posted by Rongxiang LIN on 27 June 2017 - 09:05 AM

harvested around 250-270 garlic, 275 onions, beans, slad materials, herbs, tons of potatoes, and still more to dig, tomatoes already and peppers enough that i am making a big pot of spaghetti sauce right now,  strawberries and blueberries for fresh eating and jams that i made, cukes, raspberries, figs are all over the tree, carrots, bunching onions, chinese cabbages, and a few more.


earliest we have ever gotten tomatoes and the onions yellow candy and red candy - the yellow candy a lot of them are the size of a softball and even bigger.  what a year for my onions.  3-5 eggs everyday.  apples and asian pears are doing nicely.


some ales and porters i have made and a decent looking binch of grapes n the vineyard for wine!


I am smiling!

I understand your happiness perfectly!

Enlightenment is possibly worth having a look at depending on what happens with Wayland. :)

#104864 Swami Control Panel Priorities

Posted by Rongxiang LIN on 12 June 2017 - 11:12 AM

For some reason beyond conceptual thought here in Singapore, the keywords that Bodhi Linux uses as well as how the voluntary welfare organisations are intertwined at times make magical sense. I am not in charge of this but this is one of my social services team with the retirement Swami Home this year, whereas Little Bodhi Student Care started by my alma mater's Buddhist Society - which I was a member of - they are all within the same neighbourhood here in Marsiling-Woodlands. I would love to help out with the coding and documentation, failing which, I will be offline doing more voluntary roles practising metta instead imho.



#104678 Bodhi Linux introduced in my company

Posted by Rongxiang LIN on 02 June 2017 - 04:17 AM

Refuse. Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. :wub: Thanks in going green. Awhile back at the theravada buddhism inclined Firefly Mission in Singapore we would refurbish these workstations and ship them in support of orphanages and underpriviledged boarding schools in developing countries across South and South East Asia. Ever since the rise of Communist China we paused doing a lot of such shipping since the 2010s focusing on more humanitarian supplies such as food and sanitation because the logistics at times are too costly.
