Connecting TMNet Streamyx Broadband while using Ubuntu

I write this because people have been sending me questions regarding how to connect streamyx broadband service on Ubuntu Linux. IMHO, this thing happened for two reasons

  1. Ubuntu has been shipping GNU/Linux for free
  2. Ubuntu doesn’t provide obvious way to connect to broadband

OK now, just cross your finger, open a gnome-terminal, and type :
$ sudo pppoeconf

and follow the step-by-step screenshot! Heh, i’m not being lazy to type the rest of the guide, I just don’t know how to write a proper one!


Ubuntu 5.10 Breezy and GNOME 2.12 LiveCD

Today, I finally had the time to sit down and blog about my experience using GNOME 2.12 via GNOME LiveCD.

I had great experience testing out GNOME 2.12 LiveCD, it has exceeded all of my expectations from a demo cd. I can do most of my work using only the demo cd, like reading and printing documents, get online, watch movies, listening to music/radio, instant messaging and obviously blogging ;). The CD also includes some pictures from GNOME community events as well as freely distributable musics and videos .


Gnome 2.12 LiveCD
Why I haven’t use GNOME 2.12 on any of my operating systems? Because I’m waiting for Ubuntu 5.10 (Breezy) to come out. Just to let you know, the official GNOME 2.12 LiveCD is based on Ubuntu 5.10 which will be released officially on October 13, 2005. I’m satisfied with the LiveCD and thus i’m satisfied with Ubuntu Breezy too!

Well I guess that’s all for now, time to go to sleep.
