About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    Thanks. Got any hints as to where gnome.help might be hiding?

    Looks like the cisco vpn stuff is going to need more than just some extra packages for (null). *sigh*

  3. katzj says:

    gnome.help no longer exists in GNOME2 iirc.

    As to the VPN stuff, no, the Cisco crap is very unhappy with our current kernels. There’s Geoff Keating’s userspace stuff (http://people.redhat.com/~geoffk/vpnc) which worked reasonably well when I played with it. I just happily continue to use cipe, but I don’t think they’re giving out new cipe keys anymore :(

  4. alchemist says:

    yeah, I knew about the cipe keys – the cisco stuff is much more secure, ut if it hates the kernels, there’s not much hope for it right now. Bleck.

    Time to get an ssh tunnel set up, then *grin*

  5. katzj says:

    I’m not convinced the Cisco stuff is more secure. Have you read the source to it? ;-)

    Some of the things I’ve read about the Cisco client doing just haven’t made me feel warm fuzzies, but then again, I haven’t actually used it, so I probably shouldn’t judge it.

    *grumble* Damn binary objects in a Source RPM.

    Computer: “This was compiled with gcc 2, and it won’t work”
    Me: “the hell it was, I just rebuilt the SRPM with…oh….damn proprietary bat-fuckers.”
