  1. lots of help p38. i purchased the sendmail Cookbook today from O'Reilly also. i think between the guide you sent me and the cookbook I should be ok. thx again
  2. which do you think is easier to install?
  3. I've read alot about both, and I'm failing to see a deciding factor to go one way or the other. Would someone enlighten me as to which currently has the advantage? My biggest concern is integration with Spam Assassin or other anti-spam products. That's the main reason for this new mail server. Thanks in advance.
  4. I've never had the pleasure of setting up a SATA drive in Fedora, so I can't really help you there but... -Have the ISOs already burned to disk. The anaconda Linux installer is very user friendly. -If for some reason Fedora doesn't support your card, ATI has a driver for your Radeon @ http://www.ati.com/support/drivers/linux/r...=6&submit=GO%21 -In this release, the XFree86
  5. Everytime I login as my standard user account, Linux tries to autorun a CD from my CD-ROM drive. I can login as root and it doesn't do this. I'm guessing its saving something in my session? I'm not sure though. How can I stop this?
  6. you made a wise choice CD! fedora, in my opinion, is the BEST choice for beginners and experts alike. i am also pretty new to linux and to this site. the fedora install is really easy, and you can be up and running in around an hour, depending on what you install. note: i wouldn't do the full install with all the bells and whistles, especially apache, php, and mysql. its best to install those yourself. plus it will get you familiar with working with the os.
  7. Just an update on my situation. I removed apt-get and synaptic root@greatwhite /]# rpm -e synaptic [root@greatwhite /]# rpm -e apt I downloaded the atp rpm again, installed it, and I installed GCC fine. /shrug apt-get install gcc doesn't install G++, the GNU C++ compiler, so you will also need to do: apt-get install gcc-c++ These are also required by G++, so you may or may not have to install them. apt-get install libstdc++-devel apt-get install libstdc++ apt-get install cpp It won't hurt to try. If you already have them installed, then it lets yo
  8. Muchos gracias anyweb. That got me past the problem, AND my up2date is working now (it wasn't before). However I have a new problem. When I do apt-get update && apt-get install gcc this is what I get: [root@greatwhite /]# apt-get update && apt-get install gcc Get:1 http://apt.physik.fu-berlin.de fedora/1/en/i386 release [1521B] Get:2 http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/1/i386 release [1992B] Fetched 3513B in 0s (3846B/s) Hit http://apt.physik.fu-berlin.de fedora/1/en/i386/at-testing pkglist Hit http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/1/i386/core pkglist Hit h
  9. Ok I spoke too soon. I ran that command and all seemed to be well at first. It connected to apt and downloaded some files. It then moved the cursor to a blank line on the terminal. I let it sit for awhile, and it didn't do anything else, so I closed the terminal. Went to compile mySQL and I got the no compiler found in $PATH error again. So I try to install gcc again and this is the error I'm getting now. [root@greatwhite /]# apt-get update && apt-get install gcc E: Could not get lock /var/state/apt/lists/lock - open (11 Resource temporarily unavailable) E:
  10. <3 Grep. Thx for the info. I already had apt installed as part of Anyweb's instructions for installing php/mysql/apache. I just couldn't figure out how to get a list of things that apt could install for me. Thanks VERY much for the info!
  11. So far everything I have installed on my new Fedora machine has been an RPM. I am now working on installing Apache/MySQL/PHP using the instructions in Anyweb's tutorial (btw its been great so far!) I'm getting up to the point of compiling, and I do not have a compiler, cc or gcc. I've read several things, tried installing GCC from an RPM I found on google, but it did not work. I'm not sure if it's installed or not. Does anyone know of a working GCC RPM I can use? Is it possible to get a compiler on a machine that doesn't have one to begin with? Thanks in advance. Justin

    Hi I'm Justin

    I've been skulking around this site for a few weeks now, soaking up loads of good information. I came here on a Windows 2000 machine, and I am now making my first post here on a Fedora Core 1 machine. I am loving every minute of it so far. Getting this box up and going hasn't been anywhere close to smooth, but I enjoy a good challenge Anyway, I just thought I would finally post and introduce myself before I start making threads. Thanks, Justin
