I have just finished installing Mandrake 9.2 on my laptop and want to update it with apt-get.

After searching the web there dont seem to be any active links for apt-get of the Mandrake flavour.

Anyone know where there is an active link for this, or is it possible to install the redhat version?

cheers

I have a compaq laptop that has a glide pad. I have installed Redhat10 but it seems that its not recognising it.

Is there something I need to do/install to get the glide pad working or should I just plug in a normal mouse?

Cheers

I have a 250zip drive that I can mount as root. But as local user cannot delete files move files or even format the disk.

Is there any way I can give medic6666 user permission to mount umount and full control of the zip drive?

cheers

I want to be able to have a sort of alarm clock that will play a xmms playlist at a certain time for a certain length of time.

IE..start @6am play a playlist for 1hour and then stop until next time set.

Is this possible???

The Bible books are good. I have linux 9 bible and also photoshop bible and they help a lot.

The Nutshell books are also very good. Linux in a nutshell is like a dictionary of most commands and options. So far If I needed to look a command up it has been in the nutshell book.

As far as I know there is no d/l for nutshell books. Unless someone has sat and scanned every page in one at a time and made it a PDF. :S

The mobo and bios is old and there is no way to disable the onboard. I have checked the website and have confirmed this.

I am right in thinking that the new nvidia drivers should support all nvidia cards on the market at the moment?

and also that

by using the drivers this means that linux its self does not need to support the card?


I know this is a bit drastic but is there a way to cripple the onboard so that it dont work or would this kill the whole mobo?

Cheers

I have got a new G-Force FX 5200 PCI card. The reason is I dont have a AGP slot on this pc.

I have a mobo that has onboard GFX but there is no where to disable it.

When I go to the display panel and click probe videocard it only find the onboard.

What can I do to get the PCI card to be reconised.

I am actually using it but there is a memory problem because its using the onboard settings and keeps crashing my pc.

Thanks

XMMS - this is good for audio. You need to get the mp3 plug-in

I have managed to also get realplayer working but this is a bit more difficult. There is also the codec for video on their site.


just my little bit. I'm sure there is a lot more but this is what use at the moment.


Cheers

Was you installing this with X shutdown?

Did you make sure you changed the XF86conf file

ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x...4363/README.txt

scroll down and the instructions are here.

just incase.
If you already have an XF86Config file working with a different driver
(such as the 'nv' or 'vesa' driver), then all you need to do is find
the relevant Device section and replace the line:

Driver "nv"
(or Driver "vesa")

with

Driver "nvidia"

In the Module section, make sure you have:

Load "glx"

You should also remove the following lines:

Load "dri"
Load "GLcore"

if they exist. There are also numerous options that can be added to
the XF86Config file to fine-tune the NVIDIA XFree86 driver. Please see
Appendix D for a complete list of these options.


good luck

I dont want to be funny, but.....

If you are using the GUI why do you not use the find option in the gnome menu?

Additional: I did'nt know there was a Linux version of winamp??? are you sure your not trying to install XMMS?


I am new to this as well and something that has saved my life smile.gif is apt-get. This is a program from the heavens.


you can get it here: http://apt-rpm.tuxfamily.org/

Follow the instructions and it is easy to install. Once installed you can install programs and apt will check for and install any dependencys. Its not completly fool proof but so far has had everything I've needed.

If all else fails there is google.


Good luck and welcome

I work for a company that has 3000 users accessing our intranet and databases which all run on Linux boxes. In 1 1/2 years we have not had a single down/bad time.

The company has actually bought the software as they wanted to give something back for the amount of money they have saved.

Ignore the first post. He obviously comiled all the source code wrong or something.

You really don't need to login at the start as root.

When you open a term session just type SU and then you password and you have root access.
You then type exit to leave root and go back to user.

This is a much more secure and safe way of doing it.

But hey ho each to their own biggrin.gif



Good Luck

I was in RH9 and running KDE. There is a prog under server settings I think that says samba server.

I just played around with this. I did restart both my linux and my win2k machine and the networking works now.

I am going to have a look and change things one at a time to see if I can recreate the error. This will then mean that I know what to do to fix it.

Good Luck

I have installed RH9 on my spare pc and have found my old WinTV card and would like to use it.

How much support does RH9 have for TV cards?

What other software would I need to get?

Is there anything else I need to look for?


Thanks for any help given

Hi all, smile.gif


I just installed Redhat9 and selected install everything. After a while installing everyting was ready to go.
It looks great and works quite well, except..........Samba.

Why is networking so hard in linux?
All I want to do is create a folder and share it on my lan to everyone. I dont want any special permissions/restrictions.

I then tried to use Webmin to find its no included in redhat. So I went and downloaded it. Now it wont install.

Could this be a problem with installed everything rather than picking the bits you want. The only reason I did this was that with my old install of redhat I had all sorts of problems with dependecies and could'nt do anything.

Cheers for any help given

I use Redhat 8 Bible (which works with 9) and Linux in a nutshell.

Linux in a nutshell lists all the commands with their options and a brief description.

Redhat Bible this pretty much walks you through the principles of doing things. Things may vary depending on your hardware but the principle is always the same.


Other wise do as I did. Using the books I installed, broke it, fixed it, removed it, installed it, broke it, .........you get the idea..

you can learn a lot by breaking it smile.gif

Just my little bit.

Hi all, smile.gif

I am hoping to run a small game server on the net.
I have the connection and the hardware but am wondering what flavour of linux I should use.

I get the impression its going to be between Mandrake and Redhat.

What your opinions?
I only want to run it as a game server, but would like a gui desktop as I am a novice....(slighty higher than a n00b).
It will be plugged into a netgear web safe router but I would also like a firewall installed locally.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Anyone getting into Linux should get a couple of books.

I would recommend "Linux in a nutshell" this contains almost all the commands you will ever need with all options for each command.

I also have the RedHat 8 Bible. If there is a bible book for your distro then give it ago. These books walk you through most of the things that noobies have trouble with. Now i know these are not always cheap, but they can save you soooo much time.

Good luck

Right I now know how to set the host name when I install, but does anyone know how to change it once Redhat is setup?

Cheers

I have installed Redhat 8.0 and all went well. I included in the install KDE as well as gnome.

My first question is how do I change it so that KDE is my default shell. I am stuck with gnome at the moment and want to be able to play with both.


My second question is: when I did the install I dont remember being asked for a host name. Is there one? if so how do I change it?

Thanks for any help given.
