Pen Drive Linux – Ubuntu 9.10

October 15, 2010 Leave a comment

I was trying to install Ubuntu on my sister’s Netbook ASUS Eee 1005P, only way was to have a USB boot.
Here is how we can create a USB Ubuntu Drive.
Download the latest netbook Ubuntu here

  • Insert a USB stick with at least 2GB of free space 
  • 1GB is fine if you are installing Ubuntu, but 2GB recommended if you are not planning to install but to have Live USB.

  • Download the Universal USB Installer
  • Click ‘Run’ when prompted
    • If the security dialog appears, confirm by clicking ‘Run’
    • Read the licence agreement and choose ‘I Agree’ to continue
    • Select Ubuntu Desktop Edition from the dropdown list
    • Click ‘Browse’ and open the downloaded ISO file

    • Choose the USB drive and click ‘Create’
    Once completed.
    Goto the BIOS and set the USB Harddrive as the first priority (Make sure the USB is connected to the Netbook)

    I was looking in to a nice socket programming document which we in chm
    , but this does not work in linux so I googled around and found stuff
    I use the below command ‘apt-get’ on my Ubuntu. But ‘yum’ will work on
    Redhat variants.
    # apt-get install gnochm
    # apt-get install kchmviewer
    Gnome Desktop User
    $ gnochm file.chm
    KDE Desktop User
    $ kchmviewer file.chm

    AsteriskNOW and Cisco 7940G

    October 9, 2010 Leave a comment

    Was working on Asterisk configuration with CISCO 7940 IP phones.
    There are many links which let configure this phone, this is just an overview of what I did to get this up and running
    Configuring AsteriskNow is very simple. Below are the details to setup a IP-PBX.


    1. Old CPU laying somewhere.
    2. IP Phone (Cisco 7940/7960)
    3. DHCP and TFTP Server (for Firmware upgrade)


    1. Download AsteriskNOW
    2. Configure Asterisk. (More howto later, for now important is to create users without NAT)
      1. Create a Trunk
      2. Create a Dialplan
      3. Create users (On catch here is when we create a User make sure to uncheck “NAT“)
    3. Configure IP Phone used the link here which is very helpful (Attached are files required firmware / conf files etc).

    Thats it !! IP phone should be up and running.
