The 'black card' talk makes me think you have a different version than mine (1.54 from Introversion's direct download, followed by the 1.55 patch) -- but at least in -that- version, you can use /usr/local/bin/or/wherever/you/put/it/uplink -graphics_fullscreen (the option should be saved so you don't...

I think it's been pretty much a neglected genre, in the CRPG world anyway.  The sword-and-sorcery genre is FAR more popular -- perhaps because it's more heroic, while cyberpunk normally aims to be quite dark, gritty, amoral, and violent. If you can get people together for a PNP RPG game, you mi...

With libraries... hmmmm. First, identify what ones it needs that you don't have -- running <i>ldd</i> on it will tell you, as missing libraries should be flagged as 'not found'.  Write 'em down. For each, if you don't recognize it sufficiently well to figure out the package name, you'll need to...

Um... to "crack" a password, you can't do it one letter at a time Hollywood-style. Ex.  Many Unix systems use password systems based on one-way hashes, which are designed to be impossible to algorithmically invert.  The principal ways to attack them are -- 1.  Con the user i...

You need both 'ifconfig' and 'route', and also you need to edit /etc/resolv.conf.  Use 'ifconfig' to bring up the NIC, give it a netmask, and an address.  Then, 'route' gets used to build the routing table -- e.g. specifying the gateway.  Finally, the IP addresses of nameservers serve...
