Windows 95/98 doesn't like to be on other than the first partition for booting ... I think you can hide partitions, which might help.

try this:


CODE
title win98
 hide (hd0,0)
 hide (hd0,1)
 rootnoverify (hd0,2)
 chainloader +1
 makeactive

Well, the only real difference is time ... all the configuration tools and setup is the same.

You should be able to install gentoo via VMware.

The first time you do:

emerge -uD world

it is going to update/recompile all the system packages anyway.

I would recommend stage 1 ... the whole purpose of Gentoo is to rebuild your own binaries ... and kernel, glibc, sshd are the most important ones.

If not doing a stage 1, then do a stage 3 and update later.

That is my opinion

Sounds like you had / have a fan/heaksink issue on your processor, which caused your initial issues in RH9.

What might be damaged is hard to tell ... if you fix the cooling issue, maybe nothing is damaged. Or maybe the CPU is bad, but everything else is OK ... OR the cpu and motherboard could have heat damage.

My experience says that probably there is not board damage caused by heat ... but maybe cpu damage.

At home, I have a windows XP workstation, but I hardly ever use it ... just to do my taxes and maybe to play games sometimes. I don't even have my e-mail setup on there anymore.

At work, I have a dual boot workstation (Windows XP/ CentOS 3) ... and I only boot windows when required to do security updates on it smile.gif.

I do manage a windows network at work, but I do it via windows terminal server or Citrix and open up an Administrator desktop on the Windows server from my Linux machine.

I would not recommend using RH9 ... there are no more security updates from RedHat for this product. Instead, for a server, I would recommend a RedHat clone like CentOS.

CODE
Section "Device"
       Identifier  "Videocard0"
       Driver      "nvidia"
       VendorName  "Videocard vendor"
       BoardName   "NVIDIA GeForce 2 MX (generic)"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
       Identifier "Screen0"
       Device     "Videocard0"
       Monitor    "Monitor0"
       DefaultDepth     16
       SubSection "Display"
               Viewport   0 0
               Depth     16
               Modes    "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
       EndSubSection
EndSection


In the above example, in the videocard section, the only 2 entries are important:

Driver "nvidia"
(which you should also use)

and

Identifier "Videocard0"
(the name in Identifier can be anything ... but the Device variable in the Section "Screen" section must be the same as the Identifier variable name in the Section "Device" section...in this case "Videocard0")

You should install and learn how to use a console editor (vi, emacs, joe, nano, pico) ... and if the you need to quickly boot into console mode, at the GRUB kernel selection screen, press a for append ... then put a 3 in there and you will boot that time to console (text) mode.

Look at the below link and search for loopback:

http://www.physnet.uni-hamburg.de/physnet/...vnc/winvnc.html

But on your windows boxes, you might want to install tightvnc ... it can allow loopback without editing the registry from the client:

First thing to check is if you have the latest BIOS installed for the board ...

According to what I read, the SATA drives are detected as sda/sdb instead of hda/hbd with mandrake 10.1 ... but SATA should work without the need to add special drivers with the 2.6.x kernel series (as should the sound and network card).

You actually have to install the drivers from the nvidia website.

Go here to get the driver:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_display...2_1.0-6629.html

To install, follow the instructions here:
ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x...6629/README.txt

I'm not sure there is a runlevel 5 in Gentoo by default ... just 1 through 3 i think. (but I'm not positive ... i don't have an install to look at right now).

What is up with all these KDE freaks smile.gif ... I switched to KDE for a month (as a test), but then back to my GNOME.

Looks like your python is not the version that the tools need ... did you upgrade (or downgrade) your python for some reason?

And I agree ... use FC2 or FC3 on your machine if possible (if it is a workstation), or CentOS if it is a Server.

If you like RHEL, the CentOS-3.4 is basically RHEL3-update4 (the mp3 doesn't work though ... that is a license issue.) You can get mp3 to work using dag's repo ( http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el3/en/ ). CentOS-3.x has older programs though (gnome 2.2, kde 3.1.3, gimp 1.2, openoffice 1.1.0, mozilla 1.4.3, php 4.3.2, httpd 2.0.46).

The new CentOS-4Beta is based on RHEL4-Beta2. (mp3 doesn't work with it either ... same issue). This has much newer items (Gnome 2.8.0, kde 3.3.1, gimp 2.0.5, openoffice 1.1.2, mozilla 1.7.5, php 4.3.9, http 2.0.52 ... except MySQL is the same in each 3.23.58)

If the programming you are doing is for RHEL, then CentOS would be the optimal solution.

CentOS has gsl (1.1.1 for CentOS-3.4 ... 1.1.5 for CentOS-4beta)
--------------------
Debian is also good, and if you use the Sarge Distro intead of Woody, it is fairly up to date. It depends on your target audience.

is there a redhat-config-soundcard in redhat 9 ... you would type that as root from a terminal

Or is there a Menu -> System Settings -> Soundcard Detection from your GUI Menu

it could be that your .bash_profile isn't being run at all ... so you aren't getting any environment variables.

I don't know what might cause that though ... are you booting into the graphical mode?

I don't have my Gentoo machine any more (well, I have the machine, but it is now CentOS-4), so this is from memory....but what happens if you remove your display manager from the default runlevel with a :

rc-update del gdm default

(and the same for xdm and kdm)

You should reboot into Character based mode...when you login are your terminals as they should be now?

can you startx as a user and as root?

You can put it at the bottom of the file ... after the:

[ -f ~/.bashrc ] && . ~/.bashrc

For your x issue ... do the command (as the user ... before you switch to root):

xhost +

Also ... if you want to run graphical items as root from another users shell, use the command:

su - root

instead of

su

su by itself doesn't change the environment variables, so you are running as root with jim's environment variables. You should limit su to times when you need to do things quickly like change file permissions and then exit back to the original user.

su - root actually logins in as root, and changes the environment variables to those for root ... you will be in root's home directory. This is the way you should normally switch to the root user...

The easiest thing to do is just put:

source /etc/profile

In your home/username/.bash_profile

That card is way to new to use w/redhat 9 smile.gif

Is there a reason you want to install RH9 ... because it doesn't get security updates and unless you really need that distro, I recommend something else (Like FedoraCore3).

If you must install RH9, make sure to install the kernel-source rpm ... then at the command prompt from root use the command (this is all one line if it wraps ... with a space between wget and http):
CODE
wget http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/1.0-6629/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6629-pkg1.run

then:

chmod 755 NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6629-pkg1.run

then after the driver compiles, edit XF86Config and change mga to nvidia for driver and remove the videoram and busid lines.

here is a readme

Pay particular attention to (sec-03) EDITING YOUR X CONFIG FILE of the readme and remove any lines that contain load dri or load GLcore and add load glx

DistroWatch says that SUSE LINUX 9.2 Available for Download on the SUSE Mirrors.

What is great about this release is that FINALLY SUSE has released an installable ISO that is downloadable ... although it is only the DVD iso and it contains both the i386 and x86_64 distros.

I have checked most of the mirrors and most don't yet have the DVD iso yet, but it should only be a matter of time.

Here are a couple of mirrors that do have the DVD ISOs:
ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/ftp.suse...x86_64/9.2/iso/
ftp://ftp.solnet.ch/mirror/SuSE/i386/9.2/iso/
ftp://fr2.rpmfind.net/linux/SuSE-Linux/i386/9.2/iso/

1280x1024 for me at home ... 1024 x768 on my workstation at work.

Command Line Interface (CLI) on almost all of my servers (the couple that have X installed are 1024x768).
