  1. hey Digerati thanks mate, so far my favorite is number two, the one with LN in the penguin but i want you to keep trying !! well done mate cheers anyweb
  2. How to I see what version of Kernel I have installed? You should be able to see the version as a normal user, so open up a console. Once done type uname -ar you should see something like this:- [anyweb@localhost anyweb]$ uname -ar Linux localhost.localdomain 2.4.22-1.2115.nptl #1 Wed Oct 29 17:00:00 EST 2003 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux That tells me that my kernel version is = 2.4.22-1.2115.nptl.
  3. Login as root by typing su - in a console. Once done type cat /etc/redhat-release you should see something like this:- [root@localhost root]# cat /etc/redhat-release Fedora Core release 1 (Yarrow). That tells me that I am using Fedora Core release 1 on this linux box.
  4. If you are using Mozilla 1.2.1 (shipped as default with Red Hat 9) then go here or if you want to add the Java plugin to Mozilla 1.4 then read on... Mozilla 1.4 and later, and Mozilla Firebird, are compiled with gcc 3.2.3. A gcc 3.x compatible version of the Java plugin must be used. JRE 1.4.2 contains a compatible plugin. go here java.sun.com and download the file j2re-1_4_2_02-linux-i586-rpm.bin. Now, make the file executable as root by typing:- chmod +x j2re-1_4_2_02-linux-i586-rpm.bin then (as root) run the file by typing:- ./j2re-1_4_2_02-linux-i586-rpm.bin
  5. How to change the default login to Xwindows to console or vice versa. do as follows: open a console and login as su - then, as root type the following:- cp /etc/inittab /etc/inittab.org That has just copied (cp) a text file called 'inittab' to a new text file called 'inittab.org'. The reason for that is incase you accidently screw up the text editing that comes next ;-) once done, type the following:- vi /etc/inittab that opens a pretty cool (or anal depending on how you think) console based text editor, and opens a text file. Use your up and down
  6. First things first i'd suggest you PRINT this document if you have access to a printer. By default, and out of the box with Red Hat 9 you will have no OpenGL acceleration with your Nvidia card. It will not be optimised for 3D games, or opengl applications. Installing this driver will hopefully fix that and allow you to play Quake 3 and more ;-) To get this support back, you'll need to get nvidias 3d accelerated linux driver and install it as follows, so click on the nvidia link below (for Intel Pentium based systems) or, go to their website directly to download your computers version
  7. To take a screenshot of your beautiful desktop in Red Hat you could either try pressing the 'Prt Scr' key on the keyboard.... or if that fails (and it sometimes does) then try this. Open a console and type the following:- import -window root filename.ext Where filename.ext is the filename you want to give to your work of art. You can then check the directory you are in, and there will be the screenshot waiting for you. If you want to add a delay BEFORE the shot is taken (so you can move stuff out of the way) then add a sleep command as follows:- sleep 3s; import -windo
  8. First things first, why would you want to install these fonts ? Well, the default fonts provided with Red Hat just don't look as 'smooth' and 'clean' as those standard Microsoft TrueType Fonts (especially if you ZOOM into them). This is my own humble opinion of course, but users of Open Office who like to print documents, or just read them clearly on screen will know what I mean. Ok, I assume that you have access to a Windows machine, if so, copy the TTF fonts from the /fonts directory on your Windows Machine (usually c:\windows\fonts) to a cd or local or network based directory that
  9. how do i do that mate ? do i need a paypal account or something ? cheers anyweb
  10. The version of Mozilla shipped in Red Hat 9 is Mozilla 1.2.1. Since then, some newer versions have arrived, and if you'd like to install the latest version (at the time of writing this it's 1.5 which is alpha, but we'll use the 'stable' version). To start with, get on over to http://www.mozilla.org and download the latest rpm's, or actually, the latest fully packaged installer, for Version 1.4 you need this:- mozilla 1.4.tar.gz Once you have downloaded it, you'll need to decompress the file. Open a console and type this:- tar zxvf moz*.tar.gz -z processes the g
  11. thanks mate ! see you in #redhat on EFNET cheers anyweb
  12. my original wine guide (with screenshots) is here http://anyweb.kicks-ass.net/computers/os/l...wine/index.html ---------------------------------------------------------------------- To install Wine for Red Hat 9 or Fedora Core Release 1/2 choose a link below corresponding to your CPU/Processor type and download the appropriate rpm from SourceForge:- Pentium 4 Other Pentiums Athlon Please note that a full list of available WINE downloads and up to date rpms is located right here http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/wine ok to make this easier for y'all
  13. How to enable NTFS read support in Red Hat Linux 8/9/Fedora Core Release 1/2/3. NTFS partitions can be read and even written to in Linux, but by default in Red Hat, it's not included for legal reasons. I do not recommend write support unless you don't care about your data. Windows NT/2000/XP/2k3 Server all use NTFS so using this howto will allow you to mount shares on a dual boot system. To find out what your kernel version is open a console and login as su - then type uname -a The console should display something like this That's your kernel version
  14. I assume you have some sort of dualboot already setup, i'm not going into that here, but in my examples below i have a triple boot win98/winxp/red hat 9 linux system. Open a console and as root type fdisk -l to list the partitions on your linux/windows system. the output should look something like this:- Disk /dev/hda: 40.0 GB, 40007761920 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 4864 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/hda1 * 1 1360 10924168+ c
  15. I've installed fluxbox (http://www.fluxbox.org) in Red Hat 9 and Red Hat 8.0 and for those of you who haven't tried it yet perhaps now is the time If you want to install Fluxbox in Fedora then read this instead Fluxbox is perfect for those with old video cards... and new video cards too To installl Fluxbox in Red Hat 9 (or 8.0) do this:- First go here (click on the link) http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/fluxbox...x-0.1.14.tar.gz Once you are done, gunzip it and then untar it to some local folder. cd to the folder you have untar'd it in and do this:- ./config
  16. How to install the Java PLugin in Mozilla 1.2.1 in Red Hat 9 First of all, be aware that the version of Mozilla Web Browser that ships with Red Hat 9 is 1.2.1 (does not have the Java Plugin included) and at the time of writing this, version 1.3 is already available. If you want to stay with the default and need to install Java then read below. If you want the latest version of Mozilla then don't bother with this and get over to Mozilla's website. You may want to print this out for easy reference as you will be logging in and out. First of all, create a new (hidden) folder in your ho
  17. Speed up Red Hat 9's default disk access. To do this it helps if you have knowledge of vi (a console based text editor). As root issue this command in a console vi /etc/sysconfig/harddisks This will open a text file with certain settings disabled by default, we are going to enable those commands and as a result increase the speed of hard disc access in Red Hat. First, lets find the line which reads as follows #USE_DMA=1 and now delete the # so that the line now reads USE_DMA=1 Now, scroll down and find the line which reads #EIDE_32BIT=3 and delete the # so
  18. First things first, to do this i assume you have TWO working network cards in your computer, one is connected to the internet (WAN) and the other is connected to your local network (LAN), or think of it as eth0 (WAN) and eth1 (LAN). I also assume that you want eth1 to share the internet with others, however, i am not going to enable a dhcp server, so your 'clients' will have to have their ip settings entered manually. If you want to try this then read on... First off we need to know the ip address of our WAN network card (eth0 the one connected direct to the internet ;-)). So, as root typ
