  1. Free NX is the solution that MANY of us all needed: I'm on a windows or linux box, and need to remote control another linux box... securely... over ssh only... SSL secure... oh, and with GUI too! Enter NX... Server Setup: On your linux box (nx server) Open terminal, and su to root yum install freenx guess what - that's it! The yum install does ALL the config for you! You should only need to copy the client.id_dsa.key from /etc/nxserver to your client, then properly import the key into the client setup Client Setup: Windows Box Download the Windows client from www.nomachine.com Install - take defaults all the way through. Linux (Fedora core 5, 6) download linux client from www.nomachine.com remember where you saved the file - I saved mine here: /home/dan/nxclient/ open terminal and su to root: yum localinstall nxclient*.rpm You have to do it this way, because of dependency issues - it took me forever to figure this one out - you can't install just by rpm -ivh ... that's it, now config the clients... Client Configuration (Win & Nix): The Session wizard: Session name: what ever you want to call it... Host: IP address or DNS name of your server Port: 22 Internet connection - slide to your speed Next> Drop down boxes: Right one is Unix Left one - depends on you desktop environment - choose KDE or Gnome Size of your remote desktop: select your resolution **** Check the box for Enable SSL encryption of all traffic **** Next> Check the box for Advanced Configuration dialog Finish> Advanced Configuration dialog: Click the "Key" button, then Import. Browse to the client.id_dsa.key file you got from your server setup. Save> Save> That's it! If I didn't make myself clear on the client config, click here for a video showing how to do it... NX Client Config - Video Mirror on google video - Not as clear, but works better than mine... Be patient - it's a 6 MB video file Enjoy!
  2. OK, is it just me, or is anyone else having trouble installing these Compiz themes in FC6? Normally, i just drag the theme file over the Gnome Theme manager, and it installs - these all say wrong file format... Any ideas? PS - the Enhanced Desktop Effects are AWESOME! Windows Wiggle... Screen Rotates between desktops... cool stuff!!!

    OK, That problem is fixed. Now on to other problems with this ndiswrapper.... I have it installed - have installed the windows drivers, and Fedora "sees" the Wireless card as "ndiswrapper wlan0". when I go to activate the adapter, this is the error I get: I'm running Kernel 2.6.9-1.667 from Linuxant - to fix the stack4 problem listed in the ndiswrapper FAQ. The Wireless card is a Linksys WPC54G ver 1 - Driver according to ndiswrapper can be found here Hope I haven't let anything out. Thanks in advance for your help!!!!

    ndiswrapper help

    I downloaded the ndiswrapper from http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/ - ver 1.0. I followed the direction localed here: http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/phpwiki...hp/Installation First step is to MAKE Second Step is to MAKE install I'm getting the "Error 2" on both of these, so I'm assuming there is no point in going any further. I did go on to look in the Wiki to find my Linksys WMA54G pcmcia card in the list that WILL work with the ndiswrapper, and downloaded the appropriate driver recomended from from Dell of all places... weird, but Ok... Hope this sheds some more light on it... Any help will be GREATLY appreciated!!!

    Hi all! First I want to say, WOW! I'm SOOOOOO happy to finally find a Linux community that is geared towards newbies! I'm an IT Manager for a large company in the US, MCSE, A+ etc... but have never seriously sat down and learned linux. I've installed in numerous times, and played with it, but never enough to really do EVERYTHING that i need it to do. Last summer was the last time that i did anything serious. Well, now I'm installing Fedora C2 on a desktop. I'm looking forward to getting wine installed, and using some windows programs working under linux. If i am successful, then I plan on dual booting my Home PC with Fedora C2 as well. Anyway, Anyweb, thanks a ton for this site, and for all the helpful items, reviews etc that you have put on your site, as well as all the members that have contributed. I plan on being as active as possible on this board. Thanks again! Dan B.
