A pleasant memory of exploring the world, seeing outworldly landscapes, experiencing another life in another place.. I miss it.

     In my experience, some GNU/Linux installations on laptops don’t quite handle the display backlight adjustment well enough. Sometimes the adjustment lags (which is strange as key-strokes are hardware interrupts, should prempt) with an annoying delay, and other times it simply doesn’t work at all. I often find myself having to reconfigure the hotkeys. This procedure may be unsafe, as it changes the ownership of a file in /sys to that of my user. Use at your own risk!

     To do this, we will use xbindkeys-config (XBindKeys_Config 0.1.3 by Laurent Vuibert), a gui utility that helps setup script execution by means of key combinatons or mouse clicks, using the xbindkeys utility (xbindkeys 1.8.6 by Philippe Brochard).

     Installing a new kernel can be tricky, especially building custom kernels. A plethora of configuration options are usually available to produce a kernel that is best suited to a particular set of hardware devices and OS functions. For instance, a fancy option I like to make sure is enabled is the Hibernation option, found under Power Management and ACPI Options when configuring the kernel with menuconfig. This allows the machine to be put in hibernation mode.

     A set of basic steps in configuring, compiling and installing a new Linux kernel can be found here.
