BOLO DE BOLACHA (portuguese cookie cake)


2 packs of Maria Biscuits (Maria is a portuguese cookie brand, they are simple cookies, the most simple you can buy :P )
2 cups of butter softened
2 cups of powdered sugar
1 egg
strong coffee


Mix butter and sugar until creamy, add the egg and beat until well incorporated. Set aside.

Start dipping the cookies one at a time in the coffee, don’t let them sit in there long, just a quick dip, then place on the serving plate in the shape of a flower.

Do one layer of cookies, then spread a thin layer of the butter cream mixture.

Repeat layers as high as you want to go. I used one and half packs of the Maria cookies.

Cover the whole cake with the remaining butter cream mixture.

Take some of the remaining cookies and crumble them on top.

It’s best when it’s cold so make sure to keep it refrigerated…..ENJOY!

Kernel Installation

Hey guys!

It seems that some kuki users are having questions about kernel installation.

If during installation, a question regarding the copy of the file menu.lst is asked, you have to say YES!

menu.lst needs to be upgraded so you can boot with the new kernel, you have to accept the upgrade/change or the new kernel will be installed, but you will not be able to boot into it (unless you want to manually edit the menu.lst)

To install Kuki, our kernel or kernel headers please follow our guides at:

If you still have questions after reading and trying our guides please come to our #kukilinux channel on Freenode IRC (please be patient we sleep and work too) or use our support forum

New Kernel Released: 2.6.31-rc3-kuki-20090722!!

We are proud to announce the release of our latest kernel 2.6.31-rc3-kuki-20090722 (go to our download page to get it! This kernel is based on Release Candidate 3 of the 2.6.31 series of kernels. A lot has changed between the 2.6.31 series and the kernel that installed with Kuki 3.0 Pre Release 1.7. A lot has even changed since our last kernel based on 2.6.30!

The biggest change that impacts Kuki and the Acer Aspire One is that the Intel Video driver is once again working! Using the default xorg.conf, glxgears once again reports around 825 fps (yes, we know that glxgears is not a true benchmark, but the last kernel was only around 150fps).

To read all of the changes in the 2.6.31-rc3 kernel, check out the change log at

Besides working video, the left card slot is working with or without a card at boot. Unfortunately, the right card slot is still quite finicky. You may want to try adding “pciehp.pciehp_force=1″ to the defoptions in /boot/grub/menu.lst. (pciehp is compiled into the kernel instead of loading as a module)

The ath5k driver seems to be working very well now, too. And, the problem with the /dev/snd permissions with the last kernel are fixed, so there is no need for the patch in the forums. Also, the webcam is working again! And as before, acerhdf is compiled in.

Finally, to make things a little easier, this kuki kernel also has working bluetooth, ipv4 and ipv6, and the following file systems: ext2, ext3, ext4, reiserfs, jbd.

Before installing this kernel, you may want to uninstall the splash screen (sudo apt-get remove splashy). The kernel will still boot, but, it doesn’t like the vga-0×314 line in the /boot/grub/menu.lst. The kernel will boot, but you will have a blank screen if you don’t remove that line and if you do, splashy won’t work anyway.

Actually, to be on the safe side, you should edit the menu.lst (sudo mousepad /boot/grub/menu.lst), and on the line that begins # defoptions change it so that it looks like this “# defoptions=quiet splash” (without the quotes). If you have already installed the kernel (shame on you for not reading all the directions!), you would want to edit the line with the new kernel and remove the “clocksource=hpet”, “vga=0×314″ and “elevator=deadline”. (The clocksource and elevator are already set to those values and are no longer needed on the line.)

This should be the last kernel update until either a) the next release of kuki or b) the 2.6.31 kernel goes from being a release candidate to an actual production kernel or c) something is still really broke and needs fixing.

We will be opening a new thread in the forum specific to this kernel, so post any problems, or questions, there.


Kernel News

Just an update on the kernel situation. A new kernel is being tested that looks promising. If you’ve downloaded the latest kernel (, you probably have noticed that the intel video driver is really, really slow, and you have to change the permissions on /dev/snd everytime you boot.

It seems that both of these issues have been resolved with 2.6.31-rc3. In testing, glxgears, using the default xorg.conf yields 826 fps (while glxgears is not a good benchmark, the kernel only yields 140 fps). Also, the gstreamer permission error with the mixer also is fixed!

The downside — this kernel takes a couple of seconds longer to boot than the kuki kernel that shipped with Kuki 3.0 Pre Release 1.7.

Anyway, once this kernel passes testing, we will put it on the download page for general availability. We’ll post a notice here, so keep tuned!


New Kuki Kernel

The latest Kuki Kernel is based on the latest stable kernel from ( For anybody who is interested, the changelog for is located at here.

In addition to what was included in the 2.6.30-05-kuki, the 20090707 kernel has the following kernel settings enabled:

The kernel should now support ntfs filesystems and others that require FUSE.

Fan control now works (ACERHDF). To enable fan control open a terminal and type:
sudo modprobe acerhdf
sudo echo -n “enabled” > /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/mode
(if the echo command fails, just edit /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/mode and change the disabled to enabled)

Card readers should work if booting with a card installed. If not,
add “pciehp.pciehp_force=1″ (without the quotes) to
defoptions in /boot/grub/menu.lst
(success of the right card reader is tied to which internal revision of the aspire one you have)

The kernel is compiled with the “unsafe” options, so you should be able to suspend with a card in the card reader.

If you have an aao 150, and are having wifi problems, you may need to add “blacklist acer_wmi” (without the quotes) to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist

Hopefully, with the addition of the above modules, most 3G modems/dongles/tethers should work (no guarantee as I don’t have 3G to test with).

If you have problems with this kernel, there is a special thread in the forum to post issues.

Installation instructions and the new kernel can be found on the Kuki download page.
