Code::Blocks 8.02

Long time no watch on Code::Blocks, and I was surprised that Code::Blocks finally released a formal version now - 8.02!
The version numbering scheme for Code::Blocks was changed too as announced on 18 Feb., 2008. The new version numbering scheme will follow the "Year.Month" style, also known as the "Ubuntu version scheme". Great!

Reconfigure VMware Tools after Linux kernel updated

To enable a Linux environment, VMware Player is used in my PC.
I update my Linux often. Sometime after update, I can't start up the network.
It is important to recompile the VMware Tools in the case.

  2. Now it is time to reconfigure the network interface setting by using following commands.
    sudo -s
    /etc/init.d/networking stop
    rmmod pcnet32
    rmmod vmxnet
    depmod -a
    modprobe vmxnet
    /etc/init.d/networking start
