I recently installed firefox 1.7.5 on my debian system (fluxbox if it matters) when I installed it and it auto loads everything is fine but when I try to open it after its closed I get this...
Rad:/home/rad# firefox
*** loading the extensions datasource
Segmentation fault
Rad:/home/rad#

I cant open it in the menu or use gentoo (the file manager) to open it from its main directory...
Im stuck using WWW-Browser (a text-only browser) now so please help!

I'm running an FTP server on my linux machine, but it's probably insecure as hell. One of the things I'd like to do is set up an IP filter (I believe this is the correct term; it blocks a remote ip address on all ports). How would I go about doing that?

My brother installed Debian, X, and GNOME on his computer but he neglected to make 1024x768 an option for screen resolution. He's locked at 800x600. How can we re run the configuration program to allow him to use 1024x768 ?

Ok, well to stop X from running at start up this is what you need to do. Open you /etc/inittab file in an editor and change the following line from

id:5:initdefault:

to

id:3:initdefault:

Then x wont start at boot.

As for the mouse thing, I really wish I had an answer to that because I have the same mouse more or less and can't get it to work. So.... Maybe somebody esle knows.

It's id:2:initdefault: on mine. Change it anyway?

I'm using Debian "Sarge" with XFree86 and GNOME.

Also, I've got a Microsoft Intellimouse (with 4 buttons and a wheel). How do I configure X (I'm assuming) to use the two side buttons for Back and Forward in Mozilla Firefox (like in Windows).

I'm running a nearly fully configured Gentoo Linux, but I have a couple of problems. First of all, I installed Gentoo and worked for a while as root, but I eventually made a new user because everyone told me that working as root is a terrible idea. So I logged in as my new user and typed "startx." As root, KDE would load, but now, all I get is Xorg.

So I'm posting this as root right now.

My second problem is that after I got ALSA working, my sound sucks. Even MIDI (which isn't technically audio) clips. It clips even worse when I move windows or even wiggle my mouse. I'm configured with snd-intel8x0, if it matters.

Oh, and thirdly, I couldn't play any games as root (nothing happens when I try to open them), but I think that was because I was root and not a user.

Anyone want to help me out? We can kill three birds with one stone.

I've heard of one called "Damn Small Linux," but I don't know how small it is.

Perhaps a bit more information would be helpful.

What messages do you see when they "fail".  You may be able to check your dmesg or /var/log/messages for the information.  Are you sure that you are autoloading the correct modules for your hardware?

"Loading module e100
Failed to load e100"

And I'm quite sure that at least some of them are correct, if not all of them.

EDIT: You were right. All the ones that weren't loading were for the wrong hardware.

As the title says, I had several modules set to autoload. Now they "fail" every time i reboot.

ya, your root (hd0,3) is the root for boot loader, sorry I didn't catch that the first time, if you followed the standard gentoo instructions your boot partition with be hd0,0.

I know you got Lilo running, but honestly man, go back and change over to Grub, you will be much happier, you will probably also never read this post.

I couldn't follow the handbook's instructions because I was already running Windows when I partitioned my drive. My setup is like this:

hda1 -- Win98
hda2 -- Linux root
hda3 -- Linux Swap
hda4 -- 'nix boot

I was going to just use Boot Magic 8, but it wouldn't work.

Honestly, I know GRUB has some more features, but all I need is a timer and a prompt. Maybe you can help me with the new problem I have, which is probably simple in nature.

=====

I got Gentoo installed, but I don't have anything. I can ping anyone I like (google, etc), but I can't emerge. Whenever I try to get files from an FTP server, I never connect (and I get 404s for a lot of HTTPs). So I can't get Mozilla, KDE, or any of the stuff that makes Linux useful to me.

Also, if you've already got windows up and running, and need to split its partition, Partition Magic can do that. That's what I had to do.

QUOTE (erilath9 @ Aug 14 2004, 12:49 PM)
Okay. I know how to partition it. i think.

40 gig HD
-10 gig windows
-10 gig linux (fedora)
-leftover (about 20 gig) fat32


okay... I install windows on the 10 gig first, and leave 30 gig left.
Then i run linux, and using diskdruid, format it into its 10 gig linux, and leftover fat32. yeah.

..... would it mess up windows if i installed grub to the primary boot thingy? (I forgot the real term. >.<) or do i need to make a partition for it, and...... do something.

thanks for reading! hope someone replies.

You mean the MBR? No, it won't.

EDIT: Oops, I didn't see Jim's post.

EDIT: Wow, I'm stupid. Okay, got it.

Okay, I got rid of that one easily, but I'm still getting the other error message, even after I thought I'd fixed it.

(hd0,3) is supposed to be my boot partition (as identified by GRUB), right? And the real_root is my actual root partition (path).

Sorry about the consecutive post, but I'd really like help with this. This is my third day trying to install Gentoo. mellow.gif


EDIT: Problem solved. I did a /fdisk mbr and installed LILO instead. biggrin.gif

I tried to do this on my own (first install), but I've finally screwed it up enough to call on help from above. Anyway, GRUB gives me this message when I try to boot into Gentoo:

Booting 'Gentoo Linux 2.4.25'

root (hd0,3)
Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
kernel /kernel-2.4.25-gentoo root=/dev/ram0 init=linuxrc real_root=/dev/hda2 vga=791

Error 15: File not found.

I think this is caused by an error in my grub.conf file, but I can't figure out what it is. Can someone help me out (I saw something like this in the FAQ, but it didn't help me. Sorry)?
