I am using WinXP and Fedora Core 1... What is the best (most reliable) KVM that I can use?

I bought the M$ Wireless Optical Desktop Pro:

http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/mouseand...ls.aspx?pid=014

What I want to do is be able to use this keyboard and mouse on my Linux distro (Fedora Core 1)... I have my keyboard and mouse, so I know I can plug those into Linux for the time being, and then install the necessary drivers for this wireless keyboard and mouse.

Has anyone tried to get this working with Linux? Any suggestions?

Many, many thanks!

Hughes Jr:

Thanks for the response... I really appreciate it.

Do you believe that my mouse is the problem using the KVM? If I turn Linux on and switch back and forth from WinXP to Linux, everything works (including the mouse). But, if I leave Linux running, I can't perhaps move the mouse (for a few seconds) but then everything freezes including the keyboard. Is there a hot-key that launches the terminal?

In addition, my mouse is a USB.

With thanks,

Unnsse

Hello there!

Specifications:

CPU: AMD Athlon XP 2000+
Motherboard: ASUS A7V8X-X
RAM: 512 DDR RAM
Video: GeForce2 MX 64 MB
NIC: 3Com 3c509 Ethernet Card
NIC: Realtek 10/100 Mbps Ethernet PHY
Hard Drive: 80 GB 7200 RPM ATA-100
Case: Lian-Li PC-5

I installed Fedora Core 1 and it was able to detect my NIC card on eth0!

My problem:

I have hooked up the Linux box to my monitor, keyboard, & mouse using a KVM... When I login to Windows XP and then switch to Linux, I am able to move my mouse for a couple of seconds and then the operating system freezes and I am forced to reboot... How can I prevent this from happening?

In addition, I use a router to connect to the a cable modem... Because of this a NAT address is assigned to my card... How do I find the IP address for this machine?

With thanks,

Unnsse

Mr. Hughes,

You are right, there's a built-in card, and I bought a separate PCMCIA NIC card for $10. I don't have any wireless NIC cards hooked up Linux box. I am trying to configure a dedicated server and in the Red Hat install, I specifically picked Server. I just can't seem to be able to enable any of my eth devices.

Is there any way you can help me? Do you know of any commands (used in the command line) in which I can fix this up? Also, are there any conf files that you need information on?

I really am excited and want to get this dedicated server situated...

Kindest regards,

Unnsse

P.S. Can you provide a URL for the Fedora ISOs? Should I buy another NIC Card?


Cable Modem ---> Wireless Router
| |
| |
WinXP Linux (Red Hat 9.0)

Despite the fact that I use a wireless router, I am using network cables to connect to this router (for both PCs). When I used to have a dual boot system (I posted a lot of questions for it on this forum smile.gif) I was able to set up Red Hat 9.0 really easy and was able to get on the Internet with no problem.

Should I use the second eth card to hook up to my WinXP box?

Many, many thanks,

Unnsse

Hello,

I just bought a pre-built computer from:

http://chipsandmemory.com/

Specifications:

CPU: AMD Athlon XP 2000+
Motherboard: ASUS A7V8X-X
RAM: 512 DDR RAM
Video: GeForce2 MX 64 MB
NIC: 3Com 3c509 Ethernet Card
Hard Drive: 80 GB 7200 RPM ATA-100
Case: Lian-Li PC-5

I installed Red Hat 9.0 on it...

I use a Netgear Wireless Router that is connected to a Cable Modem. I connect to the same wireless router on another box running WinXP. I use the same keyboard, mouse, and monitor using a KVM (USB). Everthing seems to work fine except that I can't seem to connect to the Internet. When I attempted to setup eth1 with DHCP (being it enabled), I get this error message at startup:

3c509 device does not seem to be present, delaying eth0
initialization" (same for eth1).

What I want to do is run a dedicated server for CVS, Apache, and JBoss... Although, I don't ask how to set up JBoss or Apache, I want to install be able to use my WinXP box (running CYGWIN) and ssh into my Linux box (which is connected to my wireless router).

My Red Hat distro doesn't seem to be picking up the particular eth cards so I can I fix this? How can I download / install 3Com NIC drivers onto Linux if it is not even connected to the Internet?

Many, many thanks!

What do you think of the Java Desktop System?

Walmart has them in stock, ranging from $200 - 400...

I am too lazy and don't have the time to go out and assemble a dedicated server, so I am thinking about just buying the Java Desktop System.....

For information on the Java Desktop System (its an altered version of Suse running GNOME):

http://java.sun.com/developer/technicalArt...sktop/jds2.html

Check this out at Walmart:

http://www.walmart.com/catalog/search-ng.g...2&Continue.y=12

Tell me waht you think!

Hello,

I am interested in building a dedicated Linux server (running Apache and CVS)… I want to build a very efficient machine and use a KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) that is connected to Windoze XP…….

Any stores that sell prebuilt dedicated servers? I am interested in Mandrake, Debian, and/or Red Hat (I used to have a dual boot with Red Hat 9 and Mandrake, but don’t know of which parts to buy for a new machine)…

I also use a cable modem that is connected to a wireless router… This makes my IP address into a NAT address à 192.168.0.1, how can I configure Apache, Twiki, and CVS on this? And also, I wish to use TightVNC… Is there a workaround to the NAT address?

I run cygwin on Windoze XP. I want to be able to write Perl, Python, Java, & Ruby src and check them into my dedicated server……

Can I anyone help me?

All the best,

Unnsse

Ok...

I fixed the mouse problem... I am very impressed with Mandrake, so far...

I created two users:

1) root
2) untz

When I start-up Mandrake... The setup screen only gives me the option of selecting "untz" (along with the avatar I chose) and doesn't let me pick "root" anywhere... How do I change this so I can type in either "untz" or "root"?

Also, what's the software to use to verify my sound blaster is working (MP3 player?) and also for MPEGs?

Many, many thanks!

Hello,

I just installed Mandrake 1.0 (Community Edition) and couldn't get my Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer (USB) working with Mandrake, I selected in when I did an install and it doesn't work at all. Also, in the verbose startup it said that ETH0 (LAN) failed. Therefore, I have no access to the Internet.

In addition, I don't know what this is but IPVS 1.0 failed also in the "verbose startup".....

Is there anyway some body can guide me in get my mouse and Internet to work? I enabled DHCP and I don't get this? Can anyone tell me how to start up and per command line basis help me configure everything?

Many, many thanks!

Please e-mail me back at untzkhan@yahoo.com or I'll just check back here.... Thanks again!

Thanks guys!

Tell me more about Suse and Mandrake... How many ISOs do I have to download for each distro?

Novell bought Suse and IBM & HP have signed deals to establish Suse in their prospective work places.

Any positives regarding Suse?

Hi... I've been using Red Hat (7 - 9.0) for the past two years, and feel like its time to try other distributions.

I run a P4 Dual Boot using GRUB:

I have:

1) ATI Radeon 9800 XT 256 DDR Video Card
2) 1 Gigabyte of DDR Ram
3) Sound Blaster Audigy
4) Hauppage WinTV Capture Card
5) Plexthor DVD-RW (& DVD+RW)

My question is... What distro should I use to that is the easiest to install and has a very awesome GUI?

Mandrake? Suse?

In addition, what is better KDE or Gnome? Don't most Linux distros have both that you can select as the default GUI?

I just want something that is easy to configure (along with my hardware) and am tired of Red Hat (no offense to any Red Hat fans!) smile.gif

Kindest regards,

Unnsse

Hello...

This is a really embarassing question. I have Red Hat 9.0 and have these two users:

1) root
2) untz

I forgot my password for user "untz" (this is the main account I use). Is there a way to login as "root" and manually change / look at user "untz"'s password?

Thanks again... laugh.gif

Huges Jr.,

Thank you very much for the response! I followed your directions and it still didn't work in the diagnostic tool... I wonder if I have the library path system user environmental variable set up correctly... Here's what my java.sh looks like under /etc/profile.d/

export JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_02
export J2EE_HOME=/usr/java/j2sdkee1.3
export JMF_HOME=/usr/java/JMF-2.1.1e
export ANT_HOME=/usr/local/ant/apache-ant-1.5.4/
export CLASSPATH=.:$JAVA_HOME/lib/tools.jar:$JAVA_HOME/lib/jre/rt.jar:$J2EE_HOME/lib/j2ee.jar:$JMF_HOME/lib/jmf.jar
export PATH=$PATH:$JAVA_HOME/bin:$J2EE_HOME/bin:$ANT_HOME/bin:$JMF_HOME/bin
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$JMF_HOME/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

Here's what my ld.so.conf looks like:

/usr/kerberos/lib
/usr/X11R6/lib
/usr/lib/qt-3.1/lib
/usr/local/lib
/usr/lib/sane
/usr/java/JMF-2.1.1e/lib

When I type ldconfig, nothing happens, so I figured that what the natural response...

After I go to the diagnostics tool, its still says "No Libraries Found!"

http://java.sun.com/products/java-media/jm...iagnostics.html

Here are what Sun Recommends doing:

http://java.sun.com/products/java-media/jm...etup-linux.html

Can anyone help?

Hello...

I am trying to configure JMF 2.1.1 so it could work properly on Linux (Red Hat 9.0)...

After looking at the instructions on:

http://java.sun.com/products/java-media/jm...etup-linux.html

I created a shell script called java.sh (located in /etc/profile.d/

and these are the contents:

export JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_02
export J2EE_HOME=/usr/java/j2sdkee1.3
export JMF_HOME=/usr/java/JMF-2.1.1e
export ANT_HOME=/usr/local/ant/apache-ant-1.5.4/
export CLASSPATH=.:$JAVA_HOME/lib/tools.jar:$JAVA_HOME/lib/jre/rt.jar:$J2EE_HOME/lib/j2ee.jar:$JMF_HOME/lib/jmf.jar
export PATH=$PATH:$JAVA_HOME/bin:$J2EE_HOME/bin:$ANT_HOME/bin:$JMF_HOME/bin
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$JMF_HOME/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

Ok. I saved the file. And then from the command line ran it like this:

$ source java.sh

When I go to the diagnostic applet (in order to test if my JMF is working correctly) this is what I get:

JMF Diagnostics:
Java 1.1. compliant browser....Maybe
JMF classes.....Not Found

The URL for this diagnostic tool is:

http://java.sun.com/products/java-media/jm...iagnostics.html

If I echo the CLASSPATH & LD_LIBRARY_PATH this is what I get:

$ echo $CLASSPATH
.:/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_02/lib/tools.jar:/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_02/lib/jre/rt.jar:/usr/java/j2sdkee1.3/lib/j2ee.jar:/usr/java/JMF-2.1.1e/lib/jmf.jar

$ echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH
/usr/java/JMF-2.1.1e/lib:

From the best of my knowledge, the LD_LIBRARY_PATH is the name of the shared libraries system environmental variable on Solaris... Is there a similar one on Linux, particularly Red Hat 9.0?

Thanks.

I have an HP PSC 2110 All-In-One printer-scanner-copier... I downloaded the HPOJ driver and have followed the instructions to a "T", so far. I encountered a problem which states:

Error:

The printer name may only contain up to 127 printable characters.

This is after step 7 on:

http://hpoj.sourceforge.net/hpoj-0.91/doc/...etup-print.html

It occurs right after I type in the name of the printer, HP PSC 2110 (from the best of my knowledge, this means you can give your printer any name, but the above error occurs and prevents me from proceeding in the tutorial).

Any help, suggestions, feedback, etc. & I will be very grateful.
