  1. that was probably your temp linux directory, you can boot from your xp cd and do a recovery to restore the xp boot loader, or vice versa for Fedora (reinstall fedora, should fix it)
  2. Fedora 14 Evolves Leading-Edge Open Source Technologies in Free Distribution The Future of Open Source Emerges in Fedora With Compelling Features for Developers, System Administrators and Open Source Enthusiasts RALEIGH, NC - Nov. 2, 2010 - The Fedora Project, a Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT) sponsored and community-supported open source collaboration, today announced the availability of Fedora 14, the latest version of its free open source operating system distribution. The Fedora Projects leads the advancement of free and open source software with a new distribution released approximately
  3. i love it, please change it, yep you can as you have access to everything now
  4. it's for a variety of reasons, backup is one, also having a server available in the us is another, it doesn't have to be an instant copy and i assume that one will be the master and the other the slave, or am i thinking wrong ? i'm just investigating this, not totally sure if i'll do it. cheers niall
  5. hmm so are you saying rsync wouldn't manage the databases ? what i ideally want is (for example) if a post is made on one mirror, that the mirror site (the other one) will show/reflect that change in a period of time (say, one hour or something) ? as there are databases involved is this doable ? have you ever tried it on a live database ?
  6. that looks like what i need, thanks Peter, basically if i can setup the box myself then rsync can do the rest, i'll have to study that guide and see if i can get it to mirror the sites from the current location (amsterdam) to my home server (sweden), if that works successfully then i'll see what options are available for mirroring a box in the us thanks !
  7. hi guys, i'd like to (if possible) mirror my webserver setup (centos 5.5) so that it's running simultaneously on one server in Europe and one in the U.S. and any changes that happen on one will be mirrored on the other the setup is all via rpm, and it's apache, mysql, php, there are two websites with databases to consider (this and another) and that's about it, is it doable but more importantly is it hard to do ??? any tips/ideas/guides ?
  8. depends on the type of laptop, what specs has it got ?
  9. getting cacti to work

  10. so this happened after an update ? have you tried a yum update + reboot since then ?
  11. the wep encryption selected in the router setup is different to the one in the first screenshot
  12. if you could bump it up to 256mb ram then yes i guess so, otherwise you could use an older release (not secure though) from a few years back
  13. are you sure it's asking for the wep/wpa key and not another prompt ? can you take a screenshot ?
  14. interesting, next time Fedora is released i will give that tool a try and report back, thanks for the info
  15. hi all, well i logged on this morning to see a 'database driver error' here on the site, and the usual fixes didn't help, after trying many things i had to resort to restoring yesterdays MYSQL backup for linux-noob.com the end result of that is it has resovled the database issue, but it may mean that a post (or posts made between yesterday and today) are lost I apologise for that and thank you for your patience cheers niall
  16. if you are already dual booting then you can boot into xp and run Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 sp1 or use Sun's Virtual machine, and then have a linux vm within windows, or do it the way i suggested, i'm not really following your issue... if you have xp already and already have fedora then you will need to have a virtual machine on one of them to do what you want
  17. here's how i did it https://www.linux-noob.com/forums/index.php?/topic/3806-how-to-run-windows-xp-in-fedora/ cheers
  18. welcome to the forums and i loved reading your post, very interesting
  19. actually no, apart from Firefox looking different, it feels much the same as it did probably because I had F12 totally up to date, or maybe i just havn't explored enough yet
  20. heres my laptop running Fedora 12 and here it is running Fedora 13
  21. today I decided to upgrade from Fedora 12 to Fedora 13 to see what the new release was like, to do so I did as follows open a console and logged in as root su - then downloaded two Fedora 13 release files needed for the next step wget ftp://ftp.sunet.se/pub/Linux/distributions/fedora/linux/releases/13/Fedora/i386/os/Packages/fedora-release-notes-13-3.fc13.noarch.rpm and wget ftp://ftp.sunet.se/pub/Linux/distributions/fedora/linux/releases/13/Fedora/i386/os/Packages/fedora-release-13-1.noarch.rpm then rpm -Uvh fedora-release-notes-13-3.
  22. It's Fedora release day! The Fedora project has pushed out version 13 of its cutting-edge Linux distribution. There's a whole boatload of improvements, some of which come from the wider Free software ecosystem, but of course, there's also a lot Fedora/Red Hat-specific stuff. There's some cool stuff in here, like using PackageKit for automatic printer driver installation as soon as you plug in your printer. The Anaconda installer has also been streamlined to improve the installation experience, especially in the storage devices and partitioning aspect. NetworkManager has been improved c
  23. it will say centrino as long as you have an intel wireless card in it (it's a marketing term) so did you change wireless card ? and are you running linux on it or what >
  24. No, Fedora 13 Linux is not coming out today (and if you read my blog last week you'd know that!). The release was pushed back by a week to fix a number of blocker bugs, among them is an interesting one that many users might simply consider to be just a papercut nuisance. GRUB (GRand Unified Bootloader), the loader that most Linux users see when they first boot up, had a very small issue in it that might have affected users. For some users (myself included) GRUB is a critical screen where you can select which operating system you want to load. That could be a different Linux kernel on the s
  25. silly me, i missed that ! what an easy update
