Hello! I am not sure if you don't like this, but I am going to ask anyway since you use emerge more than me.
I tried to find Emerge sources from web so that I could compile it for Fedora 2. But I didn't found anything useful. So then I extracted Stage-3 2004.0 gentoo pakage to hard drive and seeked out files of emerge. I copied those files into same spots on Fedora Core 2 tree.
Okey first error while driving emerge was this: root@localhost anxa]# emerge portage: 'portage' user .... read more

I've been a mandrake user, but I have Suse 10.1 installed on a dual os as of yesterday. When I boot into Suse it all goes well until login comes up. Then I put in my u/n and password, and login comes up again. Is there a command on Suse to go to the gui desktop? In mandrake it booted right to the desktop. Can someone please advise? Had no luck on google. Thanks.

Apache lost mod_rewrite when upgraded to 11.0.

Hi there, I was wondering if there were tools to resize the size of apartition under linux. I know there is one for Windows calledPartitionMagic, and I was wondering if there were the same kind ofthing for linux.
In other words, what I would like to do, is free the end of apartition (fdisk says it is a HPFS/NTFS) so I can resize the partitionwith fdisk, then in the free space I can put a swap partition...
It is not possible for me to backup the stuff on the partition, I amready to play w.... read more

<snip /><snip /><snip /> Very interesting, Rick.
Just out of interest - and not in relation to this program in particular - I wonder would, say, WINE run an attachment if you saved it to the file system and then clicked on it to execute it, in Konq for example? If this were possible, wouldn't it execute even without execute permissions set (because WINE is the executable)? Would it be possible for, say, mono to do the same thing? Just thinking out loud (and perhaps not to.... read more

I went to www.linux.com with the opera and firefox browser.
Opera seems to be more up to date with the news on that site.
http://home.quicknet.nl/mw/prive/gch/Opera-Firefox.png I hit the refresh buttons on both browsers several times and it made nodifference, even closing and starting them made no difference (why wouldit?)I did this for several minutes.
How can one browser show a different page than the other at the same adressat the same time? At the moment i'm writing this firefox also sh.... read more
