  1. slack is for people that like to think they are "leet"

    Install Eterm

    get all of the rpms in the same directory and rpm -ivh *.rpm
  3. gtar -cf - . | gtar -tvf - | egrep "^d|\/\."
  4. check /var/log/messages also try running the command from a shell, you can usually use -v switch to get more output. At the very least try program --help to look for debug options. Break away from the gui and control the apps from cli.
  5. wget http://some.website.com/somefile.tar.gz tar -xvzf somefile.tar.gz cd somefile ./configure && make && checkinstall This is a very simple short example of getting a source file from the web and compiling it. You then use "checkinstall" instead of "make install" to create the rpm. This also installs the newly created rpm to the system and places the rpm package you created in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386. Hope that helps clarify the process for you. - grep420

    Thank you webster. I appreciate your confidence in me.
  7. I finally switched all my desktops from redhat9 to fedora, thought I would post a new screenshot.
  8. I know for a fact that comcast and att.bi did it. I had to do what I suggested to you, to get my network up and running on my linux gateway/firewall.
  9. can you swap the network card from the XP box to the linux box? I ask this because your cable company uses the MAC of the nic to auth you on their network. If it is pci and you can swap it, you can easily setup the linux box as the cable gateway/firewall/router.
  10. // First you need a file to store your user/pass info. You should keep it somewhere secure like in /root, so for an example we will use /root/.cred Here is a quick way to create the needed file. Supply your own username and password of course. // echo "username=Administrator" > /root/.cred echo "password=YOURPASSWORD" >> /root/.cred // Note the first line uses a single > and the second uses two >> to append to the file. // // Make a backup of fstab and add this line to the current one. // cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab.bak && echo "//xbox/f /mnt/xbox smbfs defaults,credentials=/root/.cred 0 0" >> /etc/fstab // Now to test it. First make sure its not mounted. // umount /mnt/xbox mount -a // This will read /etc/fstab and attempt to mount all entries. If successful it will drop you back to the prompt. Now you can cd /mnt/xbox to verify. //
  11. /sbin/iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i eth0 -p tcp --dport 2525 -j DNAT --to this will forward all incoming tcp traffic on the eth0 interface to port 2525 over to internal machine on port 25

    So happy!

    anything that takes a full day to install, especially after doing it before, is more trouble than its worth.
  14. Not until april 30th. You should try out fedora, as its the continuing branch of community redhat releases.
  15. no, just pointing out that redhat is easier than gentoo, and much less of pain to set up.
  16. Here is a screenshot of win2k running cygwin with XFree86. I have my fedora desktop X forwarded to it, as you can see. I did this by installing cygwin (http://www.cygwin.com), and using my cygwin term i just type startx. with my X session running on the windows box, I then open a terminal and [ ssh -X linuxbox ] this turns on X forwarding to the windows box. Once connected with ssh just type [ nautilus ] to open the remote desktop gui.
  17. Dallas, Texas - dual ds3 network with 6 admins on it. It is usually pretty fast for me, but sometimes I have noticed some pretty bad lag.
  18. you can also try using redhat-config-network.

    So happy!

    why the hell do you guys torture yourself with that distro?
  20. I can do it in a single line with redhat: apt-get install kernel-smp#2.6.1-1.141
  21. No problems at all for me. I have done this on 9 and fedora. [root@xwing root]# date && cat /etc/redhat-release && uname -a Thu Jan 22 11:11:19 CST 2004 Fedora Core release 1 (Yarrow) Linux xwing.dal2.mindspring.net 2.6.1-1.141 #1 Wed Jan 21 04:33:51 EST 2004 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
  22. I use BitchX because I like console irc clients and I am very comfortable with it. I have used BitchX for about 4.5 years.
  23. luckily I learned linux before I ever got onto windows. So to me windows makes much less sense, and I can never seem to find what I want without hunting through gui menus. All IM programs can get annoying, I much prefer IRC.
