    The Golden Phone

    A man in Topeka, Kansas, decided to write a book about churches round the country. He started by flying to San Francisco and started working east from there. Going to a very large church he began taking photographs and making notes. He spotted a golden telephone on the vestibule wall with a sign that read, "$10,000 per minute." Seeking out the pastor, he asked about the phone and the sign. The pastor answered that the golden phone is, in fact, a direct line to Heaven, and if he pays the price, he can talk directly to God. The man thanked the pastor an

    A Good Italian Girl

    An 18 year old Italian girl tells her Mom that she has missed her period for 2 months. Very worried, the mother goes to the linuxtore and buys a pregnancy kit. The test result shows that the girl is pregnant. Shouting, cursing, crying, the mother says, "who was the pig that did this to you? I want to know!" The girl picks up the phone and makes a call. Half an hour later, a Ferrari stops in front of their house. A mature and distinguished man with gray hair and impeccably dressed in an Armani suit steps out of the of the Ferrari and enters the house. He sits in the livi
  3. A fifteen year-old boy came home with a new Chevrolet Avalanche and his parents began to yell and scream, "Where did you get that truck???!!!" He calmly told them, "I bought it today." "With what money?" demanded his parents. They knew what a Chevrolet Avalanche cost. "Well," said the boy, "this one cost me fifteen dollars."So the parents began to yell even louder. "Who would sell a truck like that for fifteen dollars?" they said. "It was the lady up the street," said the boy. I don't know her name - they just moved in. She saw me ride past on my bike and asked me i

    Swimming Pool ?

    "Hello?" Hi honey. This is Daddy. Is Mommy near the phone?" "No Daddy. She's upstairs in the bedroom with Uncle Paul." After a brief pause, Daddy says, "But honey, you haven't got an Uncle Paul." "Oh yes I do, and he's upstairs in the room with Mommy, right now." Brief Pause. "Uh, okay then, this is what I want you to do. Put the phone down on the table, run upstairs and knock on the bedroom door and shout to Mommy that Daddy's car just pulled into the driveway." "Okay Daddy, just a minute." A few minutes later the little girl comes back to the phone.
  5. Heightened terrorist threat levels in Europe Finally the Europeans are getting serious about the threat of terrorism. Sounds real serious to me ..... The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent terrorist threats and have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved." Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross." Londoners have not been "A Bit Cross" since the blitz in 1940 when tea supplies all but ran out. Terrorists have been re-categorized from "Tiresome" to a "Bloody Nuisance." The last time the British issu

    Which would you prefer?

    I use two different camcorders. Both use mini-DV tapes. I strongly recommend tape over DVD unless you are going to get a camcorder that supports full size DVDs. The mini-dvd is more expensive than the mini-dv tape and it does not add anything to the quality of your product. I use a $1500 Sony for recording special events and some of these wind up on our local cable channel. For my portable camera, I use a Canon Elura 100. For pure quality, the Sony beats the Canon hands down (of course) but it is large and bulky and not something I would want to carry around a theme park. On the other h

    dual boot

    Describe your system a little better. Are you using a drive for windows and a drive for linux or do you have both on the same drive? Did you see any errors during the Fedora install of grub? P38
  9. i dont run ubuntu but i was able to google a solution to your problem. http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=2493&postcount=2 hope this helps p38
  10. in response to your comments: - You have the option of compiling your own kernel in Fedora. The nice thing about Fedora is you are handed a stable system almost out of the box and this makes for a easy starting point for a beginner. - Gentoo is my preferred system. I have tried several and I settled on Gentoo when Redhat 9 went end-of-life. The package management system of Gentoo is one of it's strengths. Once you learn your way around it, it is extremely powerful. Once of Gentoo's main strengths is the community of users. The community is huge and growing and that makes identifying an

    well, they spent a lot of time on the paint and trim but what is under the hood?
  12. znx is, as usual, correct here. Remove sendmail from the box and install postfix. As a long time sendmail user converted to postfix, I can tell you that you are much better off with postfix and your configuration will be much less of a headache. P38
  13. Welcome to the forum. That is what we are here for. Pick a distro, read the install documentation and get it on your machine. If you get stuck, ask here or join us in IRC channel #linux-noob on efnet and ask us there. Remember, everyone starts out with Linux at the same place... at the beginning. P38
  14. Well, as the saying goes, "Famous last words" Where once it was working, now it is broken and I can find nothing that has changed. I'm not going to start a HOWTO or such on installing the package until after mine is working. Sorry for the misdirection. P38
  15. copy the .config from the /usr/src/linux-??? of your previous kernel in to the /usr/src/linux dir of your new kernel. In the new kernel's dir, run make oldconfig. If there are differences between the config of the old kernel and the new kernel, the script will prompt you for each of them and offer you the choice of Yes/No/Module (where applicable) for each of them. Answer them all and at the end, the script will write you a new .config. After that completes, run make menuconfig and make any additional changes you need/want to make for the new kernel. Then make && mak
