Strangest thing recently happened on my Slackware 10.0 box... I can nolonger watch any video files. I'm running KDE 3.2 and haven't had anyproblems. Nothing's changed as far as I know. But now, regardless ofthe application I'm using, videos are all black and I only get theaudio. This seems to be happening for video files of any codec and inany video playing application (the ones that can't handle the error,whatever it is, very well just die).
I'm at a loss as to what.... read more

I decided to install 2009.1 on my main PC (runs 2008.0 now). I worry aboutthe transition KDE3 - KDE4.
As my home partition is separate from the rest, I can imagine there beingproblems running kde4 with kde3 config files? I think I've seen somewherethat KDE4 creates a separate directory, so that would maybe not be so muchof a problem.
The problem might be to transfer a series of settings (knode, kontact,konqueror, may be a few more?) to the new KDE.
I looked around in the KDE site for a ki.... read more

I just switched from red hat to suse and I ran into a problem duringinstall. During the hard drive detection phase of the install suse sees theprimary master and slave drives as hde and hdf instead of hda and hdb. Ihave (4) hard drives on my Linux box and the partition table and drive ID'salways read correct when I ran red hat. Can anyone tell me why suse sees thepartition table backwards? Thanks in advance for any help you guys can provide.

Hi all, I run dhcpd on my fileserver and find, that dhcpd dies every morning between 5 and 6 AM.
I wrote a little script (see below) to restart dhcpd whenever needed and run it every minute by cron. The script fails to restart the server. Log output below.
The timestamps in that log seem to have different localisations - not really a problem but strange.
The command service dhcpd start or /etc/init.d/dhcpd strt works fine and gives peace until next morning.
syslog shows nothing special, a sni.... read more

I can't understand that solution.
----[Q]Consider the queuing delay in a router buffer (preceding an outboundlink). Suppose all packets are L bits, the transmission rate is R bps,and that N packets simultaneously arrive at the buffer every LN/Rseconds. Find the average queuing delay of a packet.
[A]This is easy, you just sum up...
L/R + 2L/R + ... + (n - 1)L/R = L(n - 1)/2R----Is it right?Who can explain the solution to me?

Looking at the One click installation of new drivers available fromNVidia, I did not see my NVidia Geo Force 7600 GS listed among the LegacyDrivers. However, the other One Click option doesn't list ANY of thecards that ARE supported with that choice. I am hesitant to install eitherunless I know that it will be correct. Any input? Thanks, Godzilla
