andLinux

Stumbled across a review somewhere of andLinux…. Kind of a play on words, like you can run Windows “andLinux”… Well, guess what? It works! I want to spend more time with it, and the laptop I am running it on has 2 gig, so I gave it 512 meg to run in. Kind of worried, seems like it might tie to the ip address, but since this is a laptop which might be on a wired network, or on a wireless or at the least as a DHCP client, I wish it tied to 127.0.0.1 instead. But I am not sure and could be wrong.

Update – from their FAQ

Chaning the Launcher Port

In case you want to change the port of the andLinux Launcher (port 81), open the Windows Registry (command regedit), and below the key \\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\andLinux\Launcher\ (note that, by default, only the key \\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ exists; you’ll have to create the subkeys andLinux and Launcher yourself), create a value “IP” of type “REG_SZ” with the IP address (default 192.168.11.150) and a value “Port” of type “REG_DWORD” (be careful to enter the port as decimal value; default is hexadecimal). Finally, you have to change the value of “LocalPort” in file /usr/local/sbin/launcher.pl (and restart). Note: this feature exists since andLinux Beta 1.
