You may need to enable a restricted driver to turn on Hardware Acceleration, if GLX extensions are missing then the current driver doesn't support it. Ubuntu should have a Restricted Driver Manager under your System Menu in gnome. The driver may be listed there and just needs to be selected to enable. You can also try running sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg which will reconfigure X again.

Hello Guys,

I'm wondering if anyone of you are proficient in Tck/Tk. I'm about to Google and look for examples but I figured I'd ask here first.
Basically I'm just looking to learn how to make a "Very" simple GUI application which contains labeled buttons which if I click will
run a shell command. Actually it reminds me of the Damn Small Linux control interface. I've found alot of info on creating the gui
aspect of the app with Tk, but not of how to apply shell commands to the application. Anyone know of any examples.

Thanks and have a good day,

Matt

I use WinRAR for all my conversions back and forth from my Linux Server to my Windows Box. and i find it works great for most linux formats. tar, gzip, bz2. 7zip is another good program but WinRAR takes care of 7z files as well smile.gif

QUOTE (matt @ Apr 14 2008, 06:55 AM) *
Hey Guys,

I'm trying to install a color theme into Emacs. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zenburn as a reference. All I have is a .el file which does open in emacs by default but just displays the script. I also tried renaming the file to .emacs and placing it into my home but no go.

Any Ideas?


As its turned out i was missing the emacs color-theme which I have downloaded. But when running a make on it I get a "Variable binding depth exceeds max-specpdl-size" Error? Any ideas?

Hi, from what I've learned Pink Tie is just a free Red Hat Enterprise with red hats updates similar to CentOS and whitebox, The GUI Based installer should have asked you at one point to set up a user account for the system as well as asking for a root password. root being the administrator account in Linux. If you didn't possibly set a password for your account it should have asked you for a user name for a account that may work withough a password if you didn't set one. You may have to reinstall it again and double check your settings. Its rare to have a Linux system thats password less.

Corey has written a guide on getting that spec card to work. http://www.linuxhelp.net/guides/tvtuner/ It worked for me with slackware 12. as for TvTime I coulnt not get it to compile as well without errors but the version on linuxpackages.net works fine. Try testing your card in MythTV as well. I know dagmar from the dropline project has tgz's built up for MythTV with every dependency package and add on module . http://dagmar.droplinegnome.org/slackware/MythTV/
Once you get your kernel patched with coreys guide and everything recompiled. download those packages, install, and Enjoy.

Which Distro are you using?

I know when I upgraded my Slackware server from sendmail to postfix i find it now looks to save mail to.
/var/spool/mail instead of /var/mail and I had a few issues reconfiguring everything. But thats about
all the help I know of. sad.gif also check your permissions. The postdrop group had to be set for my inboxs and
owned by postfix. and overlook default directories in your postfix config /etc/postfix/main.cf.
just 2c's worth.

Cheers,

Matt

Do anyone know of a good open source php calendar.

I have seen many online but they are more advanced than what I need.
I basically need to embed a small calendar with a mysql back end. Each
sqaure of the calendar would simply contain a the date number and a
query of the string of whats happening on that date. I can even add
events through phpmyadmin if its easier. Just need a very basic system for a
events cal really. Any ideas.

I play wow in a program called Cedega. http://www.transgaming.com/products/cedega/ which you can see a wow screen shot here http://www.transgaming.com/imgs/transgamin...en_cedega01.jpg. It offers more stability and support than WINE. Although I find wine is more faster then cedega. There was a issue a while ago regarding people being banned playing wow with wine and cedega seems to offer a more blizzard trusted environment. http://www.cedega.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=41042. But since then transgaming has been in talks with blizzard but i'm still not sure on the risks of still playing on linux.

Hey Guys,

Quick question. I'm using Ubuntu for a server and I just noticed that if I have users connected to the server via ssh with a user and I call /etc/init.d/ssh stop or ssh restart the user is still connected with the shell. I also notice from ps -aux that sshd spans threads for each user connecting. Is this normal or a new feature? With slack if i killed sshd then it was dead and every user disconnected. Also if it is a feature. If I apply any changes to ssh's config and I restart it does it apply to users still logged in or will it apply to them once they disconnect?

Thanks

Matt

You could give some of the Slackware based distros a try.

Slackware 12
Zenwalk
Arch. which has pacman or something, I haven't tried it but it's a different package system at least to toy with.

just my 2c

I'm a main cedega/wine user. I use Cedega to play most of my windows games including. World of Warcraft. Battlefield 2, Battlefield Vietnam. and alot of oldergames. You can visit the cedega game database at http://games.cedega.com/gamesdb/ to get an idea if the games you want to play will work. as well you can try wine. In most cases some of the games have a lower fps in cedega. But its a trade off for running the joys of a free OS. I also use Wine at a school i work at to add support for older educational games that required Windows 98 that we would have initially trashed before switching to linux . Wine is a awesome tool indeed.

Hey guys just a question.
I have a SB Live value because of the excellent support it has had with Linux so far. But now that i have a new board I'm wondering if the card is worth having in the system or should I save the PCI space. I'm personally I headphone junkie myself. The GF doesnt really allow me to have any high end speaker systems. So I know theres prob not a true answer here, more of a opinion.

Cheers.

Are you able to stitch to terminal one. Ctrl + ALT + F1 and login? if you can you probably don't have X configured correctly. and GDM is looping. once you switch you can login in and stop gdm with "sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop". Then reconfigure your xserver by typing "sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg"

Hope it helps.

If the laptop is an older model. I would recommend using Xubunbu. Its a mix of Ubuntu which is a fairly easy to use distribution for first time Linux users but uses XFCE as its default desktop environment. You'll learn more about desktop environments as you get more into learning Linux. Googleing KDE, Gnome, and XFCE will give you an idea of what they look like. As for hardware support ubuntu does a pretty good job out of the box. if you run into problems along the way feel free to ask more questions.

Check within firefox to see if http://localhost brings up your website.
If not Apache isn't running and you may have to start the server.

If you don't have apache from the terminal.

# yum install httpd

To start apache

# chkconfig httpd on
# /etc/init.d/httpd start

As well you may want to verify port 80 is Open.

# netstat -tulpn | grep :80

BUT Most importantly make sure 80, 443 and any other imp ports like 22
if your using ssh over the net are properly forwarded through your router
to 192.168.0.25. Its under applications on the wrt router... But im not sure.
I modded mine with OpenWRT firmware so i could just use Iptables to do the work
but thats another story.

Hope i'm some help

You can search the Synaptic Package Manager for GNU parted / Gparted and use that Utility to resize your partition. I know it supports ext3. So it depends on what file system your using. As well if you don't need to resize it if you can just format it as another Linux partition using the command line tools cfdisk or fdisk and just mount it where ever you need it.
