  1. pick a new session from the startup login screen.
  2. You can also set the path locally in your shell profile file. If your using bash { echo $SHELL to find out } then it will be ~/.bash_profile. Or set it manually from command line PATH=$PATH:/new/path but doing this is only temporary.
  3. should be more of the matching blue theme from the forums, and damn thats a huge penguin!!! oh and too much white makes it hard to read text with my transparent terms

    My work

    we keep the lights down most of the time. I like the dark.
  12. save it as a text file like rename.pl for example, chmod +x rename.pl, ./rename.pl
  13. Need to rename some directories with spaces in the names? Here is a little perl script to do just that. You will need to edit the $startpath. // Begin Script #!/usr/bin/perl use File::Find; $startpath="/path/to/dir"; do { $flag=0; find sub { my $foo=$File::Find::name; if (-d $foo && $foo=~/ /) { ($foo2=$foo)=~s/ /_/g; rename($foo, $foo2); $flag=1; } },$startpath; } until ($flag==0); exit; // End Script
  14. Thanks mate! I will try to keep more howto's coming.
  15. If you happen to find something you need but is not in rpm, the easy way is to use checkinstall to build one. Get the checkinstall binary here: http://freshmeat.net/projects/checkinstall...C41%2C147%2C257 The only trick to using checkinstall is you replace make install with it. example using fluxbox: untar and gunzip the file [jsw34@shadow sources]$ tar -xvzf fluxbox-0.1.14.tar.gz cd into source dir [jsw34@shadow sources]$ cd fluxbox-0.1.14 configure; make; and run checkinstall [jsw34@shadow sources]$ ./configure && make && checkinstall The package documentation directory ./doc-pak does not exist. Should I create a default set of package docs? [y]: <ENTER> Please choose the packaging method you want to use. Slackware , RPM [R] or Debian [D]? R <ENTER> Please write a description for the package. End your description with an empty line or EOF. >> My rpm >> <ENTER> you can edit the build values on the next screen or just hit ENTER to continue with the defaults. Now it will build the rpm and install it. Done. The new package has been installed and saved to /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/fluxbox-0.1.14-1.i386.rpm voila! If you have to use source, I highly reccommend using this tool. You will have accountability for everything you install and its really simple to remove or upgrade the package. The rpms you build will be for the architecture you are using, however you can usually use them on newer releases, It may ask you for some newer dependencies though.

    Athlon 2500+

    You probably need to update the bios for it to handle higher cpu speeds. This is a common problem and as long as you get the bios update from the manufacturer you should be fine. I had to do the same to get my 1.5 amd working.
  17. If you want to check out other players, I suggest xine, vlc, and ogle.

    welcome to the forums. still have the beard?
  19. I have built a working rpm for fluxbox 0.1.14 for fedora. I was able to successfully install and run the newest fluxbox on fedora core1 with it. http://grep420.net/rpms/fluxbox-0.1.14-1.i386.rpm. If your default runlevel is 5 you need to add the session to dm. Here is an example of my session file. Make sure it is chmod 755 as well. [root@xwing jsw34]# cat /etc/X11/dm/Sessions/fluxbox.desktop [Desktop Entry] Encoding=UTF-8 Name=Fluxbox Type=Application Icon= Exec=/usr/local/bin/fluxbox [root@xwing jsw34]# ls -al /etc/X11/dm/Sessions/fluxbox.desktop -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 95 Jan 7 12:19 /etc/X11/dm/Sessions/fluxbox.desktop For those of you with default runlevel 3, then you need to create an .xinitrc file in your home dir. [jsw34@bullpen jsw34]$ cat ~/.xinitrc #!/bin/bash /usr/local/bin/fluxbox don't forget to chmod +x ~/.xinitrc

    hi all~

    welcome to the dark side.
  22. you need to delete /dev/fd0, remove the fd0 line from /etc/fstab, remove the floppy cable, reboot, plug the cable in, reboot
  23. Make sure you do not have /dev/fd0 in /etc/fstab. If the device is gone it will only cause problems trying to mount it. You can comment out that line with # and then remove the cable reboot, it will detect that it is gone. Then plug the cable back in and reboot, kudzu should now detect it and go through the config again.
