I have a RHL9 box. The glibc version I have is the std one, 1.x. Now I have downloaded the latest 2.x version. I am able to install the new one but unable to uninstall the existing one. Result is that some applications which require the 2.x version are terminating, giving the error msg that the required glib ver is 2.x, but the existing is 1.x, so aborting....
Just how do you get the new version running?? Help!

When I double-click a html file or a htmlhelp file, konqueror opens it and displays it in bloated(extra-large) fonts so that just on or two words cover up the entire screen. How to correct this?
I have even edited the file type for .html files but I have to explicitly open them with mozilla; konqueror wouldn't do that.
Anyway, I would like konqueror to open my files properly so I can at least read them.

I've RHL 9 (kernel 2.4.20) and the standard gcc/g++ that ships with the distro. I included the iostream header as <iostream.h>, and got an error msg from g++ about some deprecation. Then I changed the header file to <iostream>. Then the compiler fasils to ercognise the cout function. Now can please anyone tell me how to compile a C++ program using g++?

My config is :
AMD AThlon 2000 XP+
ASUS A7N266VM
256 MB DDR RAM
Seagate Barracuda 40 GB (2 Nos)
52X CDR etc etc ...

I was able to install Red Hat 9 without any glitches. And then when the system was rebooting after the install, it just hanged there at the stage 'Finding module dependencies :'
Repeated attempts couldn't make the system boot. This is weird, innit? Can someone help?

Cheers

I think you guys got me wrong. I havent installed Desktop LX as yet. The installation itself is not initialising. I dont think there's any question of boot loader(grub or lilo) coming into play when I am installing from a CD.
Anyway whats the problem with GRUB? I swutched over to LILO cuz of that and would like to know why GRUB cant do what LILO can.

$locate xine yielded something like
/usr/local/xine/...
.....
/../../....xine-config

Well, the point is that there seems to be no executable by the name xine. And yes I installed apt and synaptic as well. It couldnt locate xine either. I am pretty sure that I had installed xine, but then even I am unsure about its presence now. After all, where could it just vanish like that.

JJ I meant that I was trying to install, not trying to boot. Anyway I am presently using RHL 8 and I am using LILO. That reminds me, I had the same problem when I was trying to use RHL with GRUB. That was the reason why I switched to LILO. The same error msg(error 28). Now could you tell what had happened then and what is happening now. I would very much like to install Desktop LX. My h/w config is given below:-


AND Athlon XP 2000+
ASUS A7N266VM (onboard GeForce 2 MX and nforce)
512 MB DDR(Hynix)
40 GB Samsung Puma
15" SVGA Samtron
52X CDROM Samsung

Umm...I think I installed both the lib and the ui cuz first of all the package(.tar I think) was in a Linux tools cd. And I dont think they would distribute an incomplete package. Anyway, I tried finding xine but I dont seem to have any executable named xine anywhere in / but there is one named xine-config, of whihc I cant makeany heads or tails. I will try and get apt-get and lets see if something works out.

I tried Lycoris Desktop/LX from a CD. I got a msg as follows:-

Error 28: Selected object cannot fit into memory

Then I created boot disks(3 of em). That didnt work out as well. I got the same msg.
What's going on here? Can I find a solution to my problem? unsure.gif

I installed xine ( now which version was it exactly, 1.0.0 I think) using the following commands - ./configure, make, make install. I guess it installed fine as I didnt get any error msgs after a long long compilation. Then I dont know where it has been installed and how to run it. Tried typing xine at the command terminal but seems like there's no command as such.
So could anyone tell me where could it have gone and how to run it. And how to create a link for it on my desktop. And why exactly are source files so tiring. Everytime I compile ( install) a src file, I just dunno where it goes.

Well I must say that Ted didnt look around properly. I had the same problem and I had posted here repeatedly looking for a solution, in vain though. Anyway I got past that problem after long hours trying to figure out why exactly it was happening. I didnt come up with an answer to the 'why' part but I did find a solution. I have posted my configuration at the bottom and this solution may not help but give it a shot anyway.
First, dont try to install on existing a Linux partition. Just create a DOS partition to install to (dont choose a logical partition if you are using the other logical partitions for DOS) or just leave some disk space free. Then install in text mode (''linux text"). Then as soon as 'Running Anaconda.....' appears, start pressing F2 repeatedly, not very fast, lets say 2 presses per second. This did the trick for me. Hope it takes you beyong the Anaconda 'menace'. In case, it doesnt help the first time around, reset the system and try, try again. I got it right around the 6th attempt. All the best!!

Config:-
AMD Athlon XP 2000+
ASUS A7N266VM
512 MB DDR RAM
40 GB Samsung Spinpoint HDD
15" Samtron Syncmaster
52X Samsung CD-ROM

I am learning RHL 8 with the help of this book : 'Red Hat Linux 8 Unleashed' Author: Bill Ball & partner Publishers: Sams publications. Seems to be quite easy on the jargon and explanation. Oh I think it'd be good idea to learn Unix simultaneously. I am referring to this book called 'Learning the Unix operating system' by Jerry Lang(O'Reilly). Small but informative book!

Hello yet again!!
Finally X is up and running. I d/led the NVIDIA kernel modules and display drivers as well as the motherboard drivers(unified). I didnt get things right in the first attempt cuz I installed the display drivers before the kernel module. So instead of trying to unistall and stuff, I just formatted the Linux partitions and installed everything from scratch. And this time around I installed everything in the correct order:-
1.kernel
2.diplay(GLX)
3.nforce(unified)
Now I am rocking on GUI linux smile.gif Just left with encoding my mp3s into ogg!!
Thnx to all who took time to post replies.

The system hangs! This I can tell cuz I did the numlock thing and the LED just remained at whatever state it was in. Then even <ctrL><alt><del> doesnt work. I just have to reset the system.
Anyway, I think I will d/l the nvidia drivers from their site and try installing it. Will keep you guys posted on any new happenings/queries?? smile.gif

Hello ppl! Thnx for all the help. Can do with a lil more of it.
Like I said I had been trying to RHL8. Last night I finally did it! Well it might interest you how I managed to do it. I had been running RHL 6.3. First of all I formatted my linux partitions and then started again from scratch. Right after anaconda gave the msg 'Monitor: Unable to probe' (and on previous attempts the system used to hang after that) I started pressing F2 like crazy thinking it might take me back to the first installation screen and lo behold, I get the next screen instead 'If you have bought RHL from RHL Inc, pliz register blah blah' and I was able to install without any hitch. But I was acreful not to configure X. After the install was over, configured X. But when I entered 'startx' the screen just went blank and no key combination could bring it back to CLI. I think it was a system hang again. I had to reset. Then the same thing happened in the next 20 attempts or so. I tried all different commands but got the same result everytime. In other words, X just simply wont start. I am really perplexed now. What could be so utterly wrong with my system. sad.gif
BTW where are you guys from?
/me is an Indian.

Hello ppl,

Sorry I couldnt ckeck on in here earlier. Thnx for the effort. I forgot to mention that the install CDs came with Sams 'Red Hat Linux 8' authored by Bill Ball. I think something is wrong with my monitor and not with the cd. Anyway I have installed RHL 7.2 (official) and although installation was not a problem, it said the same thing during installation 'Monitor:Unable to probe'. And when I tried to configure X, everything went fine except when I gave 'startx' the screen went blank and I got a msg something like 'Unable to connect to server. Then I tried 'kdm' as well as 'gdm'. I get a graphical login, but the resolution is a lowsy 640X480(16 bit) with an even worse refresh rate. I tried changing the settings but nothing seems to work. In fact I couldnt figure out how to change it.
Well...can anyone help me out now??
