I have an old Compaq Deskpro Pentium 166 PC that I use as my internetgateway/firewall/mailserver/webserver. It has Redhat 8.0 installed onit. I want to 'upgrade' it to run Debian. (Maybe I should just heedthe advice that if it's not broken, don't fix it.) I can't get the CD drive to work, so I can't do a CD install (Sarge).
I remember having some trouble with the CD drive when I did theoriginal Redhat install, but at any rate, I can't get it to work now.
I've.... read more

I have installed Redhat 9.0 on an older PC with a Belkin Wireless networkcard but I can not get the system to see the card. When I go to the NetworkConfiguration tool and try to add a new connection there is not an entry forthe Belkin card. Are there any updates available to get around this? Thanks, Chas

Back when it was new I installed mdv2006 on a friend's computer, and it has been running fine ever since. Fine with one exception: sound, which had been working, was lost a couple of days ago.
Running xmms -p from a terminal, both as user and as root, shows: oss_open(): Failed to open audio device (/dev/dsp/): No such file or directory Sure enough, /dev/dsp doesn't exist. And watching the bootup messages scroll by, I see: Loading sound module cmpci: cmpci module not found.

Hey Guys, This is just a quick rant. I had a job interview at a semi-largefacility the other day. They run a Novell shop, 2 IT departments andhave multiple stores throughout the US. I met with VP of Technologyand everything was going decent. After speaking to him for a fewminutes, the conversation turned to linux (naturally). I asked himbasically Have you looked at linux for a rollout they were planning.
His answer was basically because of the SCO lawsuit, I wouldnt putmy ass on the lin.... read more

I have freshly installed Suse 9.3 on a few desktop machines with no issuesso I decided to give my widescreen laptop a try. The install wentsmoothly until it had to reboot for configuration. At that pointthings got tricky. Basically Grub would not find /dev/hdc1 for swap or/dev/hdc2 for the linux kernel. After rebooting the computer just quit5 seconds into the boot and dropped me into a worthless shell prompt. Ifigured Grub should not be looking for hdc2 on my laptop so I bootedOscar(Which i.... read more

Hi Group, One of my processes ( a newsgroup binary assembler to be specific ) was running in the background when I logged out from the controlling tty. The process is still running and has been 'adopted' by init and is running with no controlling tty. Is there a way I can attach it to one now ? Usually I use screen to run it inside a virtual session that I share between work and home, but this time I wasn't using one.

Hi I needed to reformat my /var partition from reiserfs to ext3 on a workingDebian system. So, I copied the contents of /var over to anotherpartition /backup. Went down to run level 1 (telinit 1). Unmounted /var.
Reformatted it (mkfs -t ext3 /dev/sda8) and then made a blunder : mv /backup/* /var Now /var was not mounted then. So, I guess the above just created adirectory named var under /, and then I rebooted. You can imagine whathappened next - /var ended up being empty. The boot would now han.... read more

This is new. I've been getting these directly to me too after I post.
What can Debian do about this? It seems that some newsgroup has decided to tie into the list but then rejects everything noisilty back to the posters. Doug.

First some history, I 'ghosted' a Linux image to a computer and at thesame time replaced the Gigabit 10/100/1000 NIC. The original NIC was adual i/f (no name brand). I replaced it with a better card (also a duali/f).
Now the problem is, that all four of the eth's are shown in 'ifconfig'.
Let me clarify, there are four i/f's listed, they are: eth0, eth1,eth2, and eth3. My presumption is that I should have only: eth0 andeth1. That is, two eth's, one for each of the two.... read more

As you can see I'm no programmer :( I have a directory where email attachments that meet some criteria areextracted. Files in question are .jpeg.
This I've got working now.
Then I have made a #!/bin/sh script that works on with these files.
If there are files there, everything goes smoothly but if there are nonethere will be several errors in the process.
I'd like to run this as a cron job but the errors are annoying althoughthey obviously break nothing. Here's the result: .... read more

(I probably shouldn't even be touching this.) I have downloaded from Sourceforge a CVS checkout that hasn't been updated since 2005. The first step in compiling it is to run . bootstrap That command is installed, but it can't find ELF (all in uppercase.) Neither ELF nor elf is found by the whereis command. I would expect it to be a dependency. I have gnutils installed, but it isn't listed there.
What do I need? TIA, Doug.

I just emerged and installed kde as per the instructions on the gentoo website. I tried adding hal,dbus, and ivman. They all emerged but hal wouldn'tinstall via rc-update. (couldn't be found error) I setup kdm as per the instructions.
I can only login as root. If I try to login using a user accountkdm starup stalls at either the 'system' or 'perphials' stage, times out, and leaves me with a blank pale blue screen.

Yes, but a client can respond to keep alives only for days. You probablystill don't want to keep the socket open.
That should be part of the protocol you're implementing. Follow it'srules for timeouts.
