How to fool Realtek

with 5 comments

I’ll keep it short don’t worry….I don’t like the people who makes it long. by the way I’ve searched for another way to do this but there’s no way other then this.

If you want to hear the movie from a laptop and your friend wants to hear it from his headphone….what would you do :

  1. Plug the headphone into the computer.
  2. Press OK so the voice enters the headphone.
  3. Disconnect the headphone.
  4. Then plug it again and ignore the window of realtek and to do that you’ll have to click on the movie’s window.
  5. And then watch the movie peacefully (you can watch the movie with the sound of your computer and your friend watchs it by his headphone )

Please ask if you have any question, and if you’d like comment.

Running Windows 3.1 in Linux

with one comment

Requirements:
1. DOSBox, ways to download it:
a. Open the terminal and type sudo apt-get install dosbox
b. Open Synaptic and download it (assuming you’re using ubuntu).
c. Go to its website and download it.

2. Windows 3.1, finding this was a problem, but I found a website that lets you download it for free, but you’ll have to make an account. Here’s the link: http://vetusware.com/download/Windows%203.1/?id=3391

Steps:
1. Move the -downloaded- Windows 3.1 file/folder to a directory of your choice (Do not change its place after placing it, cause some steps depend on its path), extract it if it was zipped.
2. Open the directory that contains Windows 3.1’s files, you’ll find several folders named “Disk1”, “Disk2”, “Disk3”, …, “Disk7”.
3. Make a new folder named “CombinedFiles”.
4. Return to the directory that contains the disks. Now, move all the files in every disk folder to “CombinedFiles” folder.
5. Open “CombinedFiles” the folder that contains all the disks files, search for a file named “SETUP.EXE”, and open it with DOSBox. Once you’ve pressed it, DOSBox should start running, and then the installation begins.
6. Install it, it wont take time, and every time it asks you to put another disk press “Enter”. The installation should finish without any problems.
7. You’ll be asked whether if you’d to restart your computer or switch to MS-DOS, at that point switch to MS-DOS and quit DOSBox. So type in “exit” and press “Enter”. If that didn’t work, press “Ctrl + F9”. FYI If you didn’t exit DOSBox, Windows will not work in a good way and -probably- you wont be able to use your mouse.
8. Now go to “/home/YourName/” and make a new text file and name it “dosbox.conf”, copy and paste the following (don’t forget to change the path):
========================================================
[autoexec]
# Lines in this section will be run at startup. Type the following in on a new line:
#mounting
mount C: /home/...path.../CombinedFiles/
C:
========================================================
9. Now you have two ways to run Windows 3.1:
a. Open DOSBox, type “cd WINDOWS“, and then type “win” and hit the “enter”.
b. Open any *.EXE from “CombinedFiles” with DOSBox, type “cd WINDOWS“, and then type “win” and hit the “enter
“.

Notes:
1. To kill DOSBox press “LeftCtrl + F9”
2. To get out your mouse from DOSBox prss “LeftCtrl + F10”
3. It boots in 3 seconds! (if not less)

…enjoy!
