I have a Panasonic Toughbook laptop that I have to get working with Knoppix S-T-D. The latest release of Knoppix S-T-D uses the 2.4.x kernel, doesn't come with sky2 or sk98lin and doesn't support the Marvell Yukon 88E8053 integrated NIC. I have tried Knoppix 5.1 and it does work. It is using the 2.6.19.x kernel. I did some looking and found the sk98lin driver for my NIC. When I install that on S-T-D it will then recognize the card and I can configure it, but I still can't talk to anything on my network. I have verified that communication works flawlessly in Windows XP and in Knoppix 5.1 once I manually configure the card. I cannot tell what driver Knoppix is using for the card. I did a modprobe and it has both sky2 and sk98lin. Is there a way to check what driver a NIC is currently using? Or if someone knows what I can do to resolve this that will work too.

I have a 6 year old cd-rw drive in my fedora core 5 machine. It works fine in my other machine. It is visible as the correct drive designation in the BIOS. When I get into the linux environment I can open the drive, but then it will not respond to anything until I reboot the machine. I tried leaving a disk in the drive and then rebooting just to see if maybe the problem starts when I eject but I was not able to read the disk. I immediately put it in my other pc to see if it would work there and sure enough it did. I also used this drive in this exact configuration (jumpers cables and all that) to install my current install of Fedora Core 5. Anybody know what I might be able to do about this?

Okay, I finally managed to get this (I hadn't worked on it in a while). All I had to do was go into the kdmrc file and change AllowRootLogins=false to AllowRootLogins=true. Of course I had done that before and saved it, but it apparently didn't stick. Anyway, I got it fixed and it will let me log in as root now. I feel much better. laugh.gif

If you want proof (and are marginally less intelligent than I am willing to give you credit for) run "rm -R /" as a normal user and then as root, You will quickly see how even a simple command as root can destroy your entire system.

Thanks for the backhanded compliment. wink.gif

GUI tools are easier to make mistakes in than if you have to type everything. A text interface also only lets you do one thing at once making it far more likely that you will notice a mistake and just issue the right command in general.
[/quote]

Okay, makes sense.

[quote]
Sometimes you cant get around being root though, and that is when you use su. With su, only the single process has root permissions so you open your system up to far less potential mistakes. You also only have the root acccess when you specifically need it which is obivosuly less risky than having it all the time. Psychologiclaly, you are also less likely to get complacent when you specifically have to enable the extra permissions.

Okay, I guess with that explanation I get it - but really - I don't want to be protected from myself. tongue.gif Especially without me giving my direct permission for the protection. I suppose it's possible that I inadvertantly did, but I cannot figure out how to remove the unwanted protection. Do you know how I might manage this? I might switch it back later, but right now I really want to find out how to make this choice for myself.

I finally did what should have been obvious to me and went to the KDE website to check on this. I found out that what I needed was in the kdmrc file... I had actually found that before, but was uncertain of the info and unable to locate it anyway. This time thanks to what I found on the KDE website I had somewhere to start looking. I found the file at /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc. I changed allowRootLogin from false to true. Unfortunately it still won't let me log in as root... sad.gif ideas?

Oh, and thank you very much for the explanation. It really did help me understand.

Maybe your system has been cracked. I've never heard of this happening because of changing your desktop environment, though it might be possible. Crackers will sometimes disable your root password and substitute one of theirs giving them full control of your system and locking you out.


Allow me to clarify; I have the correct password. I can even change the password and log in to su mode in a console, but KDE and Gnome tell me "Root Logins are not allowed" when I try to use them to log in to the GUI.

Thanks for the assistance.

I decided to try going another route. Since no one outside of my local network really needs access to my pc, I am blocking all outside access and opening things up for my local computers. Is there some reason I am not aware of why this would be a bad idea?

I am aware of the fact that it is considered unadvisable to log in as root. However, my system currently won't let me, which is extremely irritating especially since I have no idea why. I saw it mentioned somewhere that this sometimes happens when you switch from using Gnome to using KDE which I did, but I am relatively certain that I logged in as root several times after I did that. Can anyone help me fix this?

So why is it a bad idea to log in as root? And why is using su any better?

I have had the same IPs try to use my system to relay spams several times over the past couple of weeks. Is there a way I can block those specific IPs from connecting?

You should probably check out the security tag in your smb.conf. If you changed the hostname and windows is trying to connect to that hostname, the user and pass will not go through. Post your smb.conf.


I should point out that this is fixed to the point where I am not worried about it. Changing my hostname wasn't something I needed to do, or even wanted to do all that strongly. That said, here is my smb.conf file:
QUOTE
# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
# here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options (perhaps too
# many!) most of which are not shown in this example

# Any line which starts with a ; (semi-colon) or a # (hash)
# is a comment and is ignored. In this example we will use a #

Ick - Dreamweaver. Internet Software Developers do NOT use WYSIWYG wink.gif (the design/layout people have dreamweaver though)... Perhaps if it were just a text-editor...

I quite like Crimson Editor for Windows, which isn't OSS but is free.


I suppose that is probably true. To be honest I rarely if ever use the WYSIWYG anymore. You can always just switch to code view and it essentially becomes a text editor. It just has so many other cool features. Codehints, reference books, code completion, intelligent syntax highlighting... I'm sure there are more but those are the main ones I use.

Have you considered Dreamweaver? (It seems obvious but hey, you never know) I have enjoyed it immensely. If there were a Linux version I would just use that. Sadly, they don't seem to believe it's worth the investment yet. Although with so many free programs available for linux already, I can see how it could be tough to talk someone into investing in a retail editor.

maybe you have configured samba so that it won the local master browser and domain master browser role in that network.

Nope, it's just using a samba client. When the machine is off now that I have things working again, the network still works fine...

According to your post you got things working again.....great. I'm no networking expert, but I believe that hostnames play an important role in networking, not only with Linux but Windows as well.

Yes they do. I wish that I had thought to check whether I could access the pcs through their respective IP addresses while I was having the problem. It is also worth noting that while the network neighborhood was inaccessible I was still able to follow a direct link to my roommates pc. I will probably try to reproduce this problem at a later date and figure out what is up if I can.

Earlier today I had my windows network (two WinXP machines one Linux running samba) seemingly dissappear on all three machines. The only thing that I had changed was the hostname of my linux machine. It is not a server for anything on the local network. I tried a couple of things, but once I put things back to the way that they had been everything started working right again. Any ideas for what might have happened? The only thing I am aware of changing before things went haywire was the hostname on my linux box.

I am looking for a linux PHP (and preferably html but not necessarilly) editor with Dreamweaver style codehints. Syntax highlighting would also be a major plus. Something along the lines of vi but with codehints would be great. What I am looking for is something codehints. I would prefer freeware, but something that was inexpensive would be fine too.

P.S. Based on what I have seen of similar questions on other boards I am sorry about starting this thread, but I haven't been able to find a solution.

Wanted to let everyone know that my email server is up and running. It's a wonderful feeling to look at an email and know that you set up the process by which it was delivered. biggrin.gif Thanks for all the help. I still need to get my AV and my SPAM blocking program integrated, my attempts with amavis were not what you could call successful...

Anyway, I was going through my logs this morning and came across this:

QUOTE
Out: 220 mail.spiggyman.info ESMTP Postfix
In: HELO jordan.pp.org.pl
Out: 250 mail.spiggyman.info
In: MAIL FROM: <paypal@paypal.com>
Out: 250 Ok
In: RCPT TO: <bebedulcik@yahoo.com>

In: DATA
Out: 554 Error: no valid recipients
In: Subject: 24.21.65.98
Out: 221 Error: I can break rules, too. Goodbye.


Is that as bad as it looks? Was someone else trying to use my computer to scam someone? I realized that while trying to get things set up I had opened up telnet on my firewall and did not turn it back off. I have now but is there something more that I need to do to prevent this sort of thing in the future?

Okay, so I think I had an epiphany! Is the SMTP server the one that handles receiving mail as well? In which case the pop3/imap would just handle serving the emails to remote locations? So when I said that I wanted to get dovecot set up first I was really showing just how much of a n00b I am... tongue.gif Oh well...

I found in the FC5 Core Packages list "python-elementtree-1.2.6-4.2.1.i386.rpm". I went to install that and it said that the version I already had was newer (python-elementtree-1.2.6-6.2.el4.rf). I uninstalled that one, installed the rpm I had downloaded, then re-installed YUM. It's working again. Thank you for all of the help.

you can use the rpm command directly to uninstall, then reinstall yum. First, run "rpm -e yum" to get yum uninstalled. Then locate the yum RPMS (download them, or find them on the CDs) and run "rpm -i name_of_rpm(s)" (you can use wildcards. So, you could just copy all yum rpms to a folder and run "rpm -i *.rpm")

Thank you, at least I don't have a non-functional YUM installation anymore. Unfortunately, this didn't fix the problem with the missing module. Apparently it is a Python module that is missing. After I re-installed YUM I trie to run it and got an error message identical to the one above. So now I need to hunt down an rpm for that.

have you thought of downloading the python module? Even easier would be to just download the latest version of python and install it.


Actually I have. Unfortunately since I have no compiler installed and (although I couldn't locate an rpm version of python anyway) rpms don't respond (I assume this is because of YUM being non-operational) that's not an option I have been able to run with. If FC5 comes with another way of handling rpms and you can point me to it and an rpm version of python I suppose that would work, but right now I am stuck. sad.gif

While I was fairly certain that I had run "make" on this system a couple of times previously, I must have been wrong as I appear to not have a compiler installed. That said, without YUM working and without a compiler, is there any way that I am going to be able to get arround re-installing from scratch?

I managed to get ahold of a copy of the default configuration file. So my Dovecot is back up. I'm still not really sure how I messed it up to begin with... now, back to trying to get it to work the way I wan it to. cool.gif

Uninstall, then reinstall it

That's actually what I was thinking, unfortunately I seem to have screwed up YUM so that it is unusable (I get a cElementTree error) and when I run ./configure on src packages it tells me that there is no acceptable compiler available, which keeps me from being able to install anything at all. (I have this all in another thread - YUM is screwed - as well) I am hoping to avoid having to re-install Fedora.

I seem to have royally screwed my system. I can't do anything with rpm files, and when I run ./configure I get this:

CODE
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no
checking for style of include used by make... GNU
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl... no
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
See `config.log' for more details.


Everything had been working until a couple of days ago. I think it messed up after I updated my main files for Fedora using YUM Updater.
