What's the best linus distribution for newbie? Is linux mandrake is the most user friendly? Also one thing is backing me up not to use linux because it does not support write for NTFS file system only read. My back up HD it is in NTFS file system. And that's my problem. Also if you install linux what are the file system that's available? Is the file system for linux is readable for windows?



Thank you.

linux pedeng mabuhay sa kahit anong file system. kaya din nya basahin ang NTFS. hmm.. alam ko lang na walang native support ang linux sa NTFS pero pwede mong recompile ang kernel para makabasa err.. meron din mga downloadables na kaya nang maka-basa nang NTFS. depende kung sa anong file system mo ilalagay ang linux kung mababasa sya nang windogz. kung linux file system ang gagamitin mo hindi ito kayang basahin ni windogz. sa fat32, NTFS pwedeng gumana si linux tsaka mababasa pa ni windogz ang files mo... meron lang ata performance hit para kay linux kapag ala cya sa native na file system nya.

ANO BA MALI KO ?





PROBLEM = NO DOMAIN NAME SERVER AVAILABLE TO VALIDATE YOUR PASSWORD





this prompts when i try to logon to my win98

       

        kelangan ba tlga ng netbios name pra madetect ng win98 ung domain       name ko na AMD ?





I just put binoy as username





username = binoy

ano ba ibig sabihin ng NETBIOS name ? para san ba to ?


is dis really needed ?





useradd seawolf

ano ba ibig sabihin ng NETBIOS name ?




Mahalaga ang NETBIOS sa isang server running linux, Netbios is short for Network Basic Input Output System, an application programming interface (API) that augments the DOS BIOS by adding special functions for local-area networks (LANs). Almost all LANs for PCs are based on the NetBIOS. Some LAN manufacturers have even extended it, adding additional network capabilities.

NetBIOS relies on a message format called Server Message Block (SMB).

SMB Is used by UNIX to communicate in DOS and Windows Networks.

try this
smbclient -L win98 -I 192.168.0.1 -U administrator

Post by: joelbryan on August 07, 2002, 01:22:47 PM
Hmmm, this indicates that smbclient was built wuth SSL support ...



Are you sure you were connecting to a Samba server? This is the sort of

response you would expect from a Win9X client when you connect to it with

the wrong NetBIOS name, but not from Samba ...



What does the Samba log files say?



Well, this is not going to be an issue until you get a NetBIOS session

going. However, you have to create this file and add users to is.



You can use the smbpasswd command to add users to the smbpasswd file, but

only for users that already exist in the /etc/passwd file.

Using Windows Explorer, share one or more of your Windows drives.



Make sure you can ping the Windows box from your Linux box. If you can't ping, you can't go any further.



Use findsmb to locate SMB shares on your network:

$ findsmb

yup!, it's possible to do that, if your Windows XP filesystem is set to NTFS, you should install Win98 on Drive C (Primary), then you should create a extended partition for other OS, this way, it's much organized on your hard disk, then create a logical partition for WinXP, then the rest of the free patition would be your linux os.

, try both of them if you want to know what's great for you, If you prefer stability and high security and you are 100% GNU License supporter, you should look at Red Hat, however if you prefer ease of use, point and click, graphics and pictures, commercial applications, you should look at Mandrake.

simply put, netbios name is like the name you give your computer in windows.
Title: FREE Linux Tutorial.
Post by: nvictus on August 07, 2002, 07:03:16 PM
seawolf



Your netbios should match the hostname in your linux box.  Make sure your linux box hostname is not "localhost", windows uses "localhost" and kind of picky about that.



Type 'hostname' on command line, without the single quotes.



you'll get something like 'linuxbox.mydomain.com,'  linuxbox is your netbios.

how can i access the files on my C: FAT32 partition for win98se and D: NTFS for WinXP using my Linux on hda6-8 (boot, swap and root) partition? and vice versa. I want to access files on the linux partition using win98se or winxp.
Title: FREE Linux Tutorial.
Post by: dta on August 07, 2002, 11:43:00 PM
Hmm. I'm also a Linux newbie, but I think to access the files on your C: FAT32 partition, you need to mount that partition first using the "vfat" mode.



You need to find out the  HDx-x of your C: FAT32 partition (I think there's a command to do that, but I forgot what it is)



Then you "mount -t vfat [drive] [directory]"... well something like that... as I said I'm very unsure of the syntax... but that should help you get started (use the help feature of Linux)
Title: FREE Linux Tutorial.
Post by: dein on August 07, 2002, 11:45:15 PM
if you're in ur linux system, you can access those other partitions. usually it's found in the /mnt/ directory. on the other hand, if you wish to access your llinux system when you're in win98se or winxp, (correct me if i'm wrong) you can't. well, i can't in my case.  i  have mandrake 8.2 and win98se in my system.  



so what i did was install vmware in my llinux system and had another win98se operating inside linux. in this way, i don't have to reboot to shift from one OS to another.

basically:

first ide slave -] /dev/hdb

second ide master -] /dev/hdc

second ide slave -] /dev/hdd



syempre maiiba pa yan kung raid, scsi, scsi-emulated, etc.



example:

mount /dev/hdaX /mount/point/ -t vfat

where X is partition number

as we all know, you cannot run linux apps in Windows. so you would only want to access linux files from within windows if those files are your data files (i.e HTML, mp3 etc., and not linux executatble). so the solution is, when you're in linux, don't save your data in linux partition. save it in a filesystem that both OS would have access (i.e. vfat)

What is the difference between Wine and VMware?
Title: FREE Linux Tutorial.
Post by: Locohijo on August 08, 2002, 03:31:51 AM
WINE's acronym says it all, it means Wine Is Not an Emulator whereas VMWare is. :)



Here's an excerpt of WINE's "what is" on WineHQ.org ...

Wine is an implementation of the Windows Win32 and Win16 APIs on top of X and Unix. Think of Wine as a Windows compatibility layer. Wine provides both a development toolkit (Winelib) for porting Windows sources to Unix and a program loader, allowing many unmodified Windows 3.x/95/98/ME/NT/W2K/XP binaries to run under Intel Unixes. Wine works on most popular Intel Unixes, including Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris.



Addition ...



In WINE, you would not really need any Windows installed on your PC, it would run any WINE certified Windows apps by default.  In VMWare it's different, since VMWare just emulates an x86 machine (thus creating a virtual x86 machine), you'll need to install Windows on that virtual machine of yours as it need an OS to run.



So what does this means?  in WINE, you would not be able to run *all* Windows apps whereas in VMWare you can, albeit it's usually very slow due to the overhead of the emulated instructions.

I think if you're using 'encrypt passwords = yes,' you need to create a separate samba passwd file.  You cannot use linux passwd file.  Somebody correct me if i'm wrong.  Try commenting the 'encrypt passwords = yes' and see what happens.  If that doesn't work then uncomment it back, and create an smbpasswd file and add it's location to your [global] in smb.conf, like this;



encrypt passwords = yes

smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd



Also, do you have 'ssl CA Certfile = /location of file..' uncommented in your smb.conf?

Can I access my linux files inside windows?




Yes, this is possible, and it's only supported when you have ext3, you will need to download the program called explore2fs.

This is a very handy tool when you can't boot linux, and your going to backup your files outside linux.

I enjoy reading "Linux Newbie Administrator Guide (LNAG)" when I'm first learning linux, some of it are pretty old, but they keep it updated (newest ver. 0.188 2002-06-01), the documentation is entertaining and I recommend it to people who are very new and amateurly experienced to linux.





http://sunsite.dk/linux-newbie (http://sunsite.dk/linux-newbie)





also try reading "Introduction to UNIX" by Max Stallman, this is a great book and it gives you a good overview about UNIX, and will apply in Linux. I think the last time I bought it (2nd copy), it just cost P99 pesos.

mouse and x. how to configure it?



i've tried all the mouse protocols and types



/dev/mouse

/dev/psaux

/dev/input/mice .. mouse0,1,2



but still unfortunate for it to work.



even installed gpm just to test, still no go.



even tried three different mice.



even recompiled kernel (2.4.18) to support all types of mice.



not the ps/2 port 'coz it works fine in XP.

corresponding entry in XF86Config would be:

you can now safely install linux on that partition. In large HD, you can have problems in older linux distributions because of old kernel and bootloader that cannot boot high values of HD geometry settings, install the newest distributions.

if you are referring to the 1024 cylinder limit, the bootloader is the culprit, _NOT_ the kernel.

dual boot win 98 and linux? how? i have a 15 gb HD partition into 10 and 5 gb,the 10 for win 98 and 5 for linux....whats next? wala bang problema mag dual boot pag masyadong malaki HD mo?




Shouldn't be a problem with the new kernels like ^ said.  I think the easiest way to do this is by using dos fdisk to split the partition first into 2 fat32.  Install win98 on the first partition and linux on the second.  When you install linux, fdisk the 2nd partition again.  Some distro will even give you a warning about the 1024 cylinder limit as redhat did when I installed it, but some don't even care like when I installed slackware.  Worked fine both times for me using lilo.

well, if you don't know how to start, just let teh installer do the partitioning for you. however, if you prefer to do the job manually, make sure you create a huge ext2/Reiserfs/ext3 partition for "/" (root directory) more likely to be 90% larger than swap partition, and a 500MB swap would be great.

Why not use WindowMaker, It's small, stable, fast and has great graphics, and if you want to setup your WindowMaker top, there's a lot of sites that support WindowMaker, It used to be my WindowManager before when I have a Intel Pentium 75.

If hda6 is where you installed w2k then it probably will not work since windows likes to be installed on the first primary active partition of the hd.  Windows likes /dev/hdX1 (X=ide channel).



Do an 'fdisk /dev/hda' then 'p' to see the partitions and check where ntfs is.  Also, let us see your lilo.conf.

I've come across with this situation before and it seem that Email addressing are sensitive only to domain name.



I think this is have to do with the way the .(dot) is interpreted  by each protocol:  



In dns protocol the dot represents levels of domain, so if you specify a 192.168.0.1 as an address, it thinks that the 192 is the subdomain of 168 and 168 is subdomain of 0 and so on, which doesnt really exist and cant be translated into ip addrees by the dns host.



Whereas the dot in the ip protocol represents the 8 bits devider out of 32 bits use in IPv4(IP version 4), thus giving you 255 permutation by the power of 4(255x255x255x255) totalling of  4 billion plus bits address combination available for use.



Lastly by default the From: address field can contain garbarge address during the sending by just using standard email client , the client doesnt care, the smtp protocol mostly cares about the To: address field.  In your case since I have not use sendmail much but it make sense to think so that sendmail is more stricter on this situation since it has to operate under a multiuser environment.  Just a food for thought for ya.

You was probably asked since RH (I'm assuming you're using this distro) or other distro for that matter, requires a user account to be created during the installation.

what is the use of the remaining 3 discs?




The last 2 disc is where the source RPMs are stored.  The third CD contains binaries so you must download this one too for the installation.

Also, i want to access my files in my WinXP OS, (i have dual boot- WinXP Pro & Linux 8.0) gaya ng MP3 files, jpeg, etc. pero hindi ko sya makita, paano ba mga sir na gawin yun? Also, vice versa pag nasa xp os naman ako, gusto ko ring makita files ko sa linux, btw both partitions ay NTFS.




To do this you must edit the /etc/fstab file .. you can safely do this with any text editor.  One must know how's the partition on your drive are set up.    For more info, do read this



http://g.unsa.edu.ar:6711/man?=fstab&=5 (http://g.unsa.edu.ar:6711/man?=fstab&=5) and this

http://g.unsa.edu.ar:6711/man?=mount&=8 (http://g.unsa.edu.ar:6711/man?=mount&=8)



However, if still you are unable to access your NTFS partition then you may need to re-compile your generic kernel and enable NTFS (Read) support.

http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/DSL-HOWTO/ (http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/DSL-HOWTO/)



different things have to be done but they depend on what your dsl service is. try to ask about the protocol your dsl provider uses (pppoe, dhcp, etc...) and have the type (connected by usb, ethernet, etc...) and brand/chipset of the dsl modem you are using. when we have those information, i'm pretty sure someone from this forum would guide you in setting up your dsl subscription.



i have a debian gnu/linux sid installation which i use to connect to PLDT myDSL which is a pppoe dsl service using a ethernet based nokia dsl modem.



have fun and happy hacking!



btw, linux is just the kernel, of which the current stable version is 2.4.19. when you say linux 8.0, i assume you are referring to a version 8.0 of a distro of some sort.

my dsl kasi requires username at password pa to get online, hindi sya kagaya ng cable dito na anytime ay naka online.




DSL let's you stay on-line 24/7 also, the only difference is that dsl requires to dial-up and authenticate every time you connect unlike cable which uses the modems mac address to establish a valid connection.



Redhat 8 comes with PPPoE, just run internet-druid in a command line, this should let you add a connection and just select xDSL.

Free Linux Tutorial? Well, here it goes...



I'm a newbie trying to set up a web server with RedHat 8 and Apache 2.0. I got Linux installed and httpd running to the point that if I hit the server IP address with a browser from across my network, I get the default Apache web page. Now I'm trying to set up a name-based virtual host so I can host 2 websites on the same server with the same IP. After entering the directives in httpd.conf for a virtual host for www.flypsyde.org and making the appropriate entries in the local hosts file on my Win2K client (no DNS server on my LAN to resolve the host name to an IP), if I try to go to www.flypsyde.org I still get the default Apache page instead of the index.html file in the folder I created. I checked the error logs and this is the only error I see:



"directory index forbidden by rule"



I stopped here since I couldn't get my page to display so I only defined a default virtual host (this was already there) and the one for flypsyde. Below are the virtual host directives from my httpd.conf file:



#

# Virtual hosts

#

# Virtual host Default Virtual Host

(VirtualHost *)

    ServerName _default_

    ServerSignature email    

   DirectoryIndex  index.php index.html index.htm index.shtml   

    ServerSignature email    

    LogLevel  warn

    HostNameLookups off

(/VirtualHost)



# Virtual host flypsyde

(VirtualHost 10.10.10.103:80)

    DocumentRoot /var/www/html/flypsyde

    ErrorLog logs/flypsyde_error_log    

    ServerName www.flypsyde.org

    ServerSignature email

    TransferLog logs/flypsyde_access_log   

    ServerSignature email    

    TransferLog logs/flypsyde_access_log

    ErrorLog logs/flypsyde_error_log

(/VirtualHost)



I used the "()" symbols since the correct ones don't want to display properly.



The Document Root path has been created with the default permissions (everyone has READ and EXECUTE access to the file and directory) and I did all my configuration from within Gnome using the gui HTTP Configuration Tool.



I've researched this on the internet but I can't find anything specific and I know it has to be a newbie mistake I'm making somewhere. Anyone have some good ideas or advice on where I should start? I can post the entire httpd.conf or specific parts of it if anyone wants to look at it.



Thanks in advance!

Try removing DirectoryIndex within the VirtualHost container flyp, I don't think it belongs there.  Try to put it before VirtualHost Section, somewhere in the middle of httpd.conf.



Here's the virtual host section of my httpd.conf, it works fine with dynamic ip.  It should also work if you have a static ip, or you could always replace * with an actual static ip.  Hope this helps.



NameVirtualHost *



<VirtualHost *>

    ServerAdmin nvictus@email.com

    DocumentRoot /home/nvictus

    ServerName nvictus.ath.cx

    ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/nvictus.ath.cx-error_log

    CustomLog /var/log/apache2/nvictus.ath.cx-access_log

</VirtualHost>



<VirtualHost *>

    ServerAdmin nvictus@email.com

    DocumentRoot /home/nvektus

    ServerName nvektus.kicks-ass.net

    ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/nvektus.kicks-ass.net-error_log

    CustomLog /var/log/apache2/nvektus.kicks-ass.net-access_log

</VirtualHost>

Thanks nvictus! Your advice pointed me in the right direction. I started to manually edit my httpd.conf, instead of using the gui HTTP Configuration Tool, and noticed some odd formatting in the file. I think the HTTP Configuration Tool doesn't work right because after I manually created a new httpd.conf and copied your virtual host section formatting, my Apache server now displays the right web pages.



One other question though. With the 2 virtual hosts I defined, I thought that if you enter the IP address of the web server in the browser on a client machine that it should show the Apache default page again. Instead it shows the page for the first virtual host I've defined. No big deal since it works fine for the virtual hosts I defined, I just thought the main settings in the httpd.conf would kick in if it the virtual hosts weren't specifically called. Any ideas?



Thanks again!

Once you configure virtual hosting the first VirtualHost becomes the main/default host and ignores any other host defined outside the virtual hosting section.  Sometimes, if you use a static ip, it's a good idea to setup that first VirtualHost as an error/unauthorized access page, in case somebody browses your server using that static ip.

It will do both, send smtp mail and recieves pop3 mail.  But if you're looking for something easier... qmail is just as hard to get started as sendmail sometimes.  Try http://www.extremail.com (http://www.extremail.com), never tried it myself but I heard is easier to setup.

what linux groupware application would you recommend?



ganito kasi ang workflow e. our office collect data/info from other offices, and our analyst would take a look at it and write out their recommendations.



sometimes, the senior analyst may want to add additional comments/recommendations or even totally find the recommendation/analysis unacceptable and write out another analysis or ask them to review what they have written.



tapos at the end of day, we have to release these recommendations/analysis to another office.





what i am looking at?

- exploring the use of XML because our information sources dont produce the same output and their data is quite diverse.



- groupware for work/document collaboration. am even looking at ZOPE

Because Linux uses pure OpenGL API mostly, running tux racer and other OpenGL dependent games would require you to have an OpenGL supported video card.

However, implementations of other projects like WineX does support DirectX supported features, it does runs almost 80% of today's Windows compatible games throught compatibitity and using wine.

Post by: /dave/null on October 30, 2002, 08:40:53 PM
stavros,



Packages are group together so that dependencies will not break. There is no Add/Remove equivalent in RH8. The Packages system under the System Options is like the Windows Setup in Windows. It won't track third party Apps for you. So it's a good idea to keep track what RPMs you're installing.



seawolf,



Sendmail is an MTA only. It accepts incoming email from another MTA (Postfix, qmail, etc) and delivers them via a local delivery agent, say procmail. To retrieve messages, you need a POP3 or IMAP service running.

I haven't tried running wine yet, but I assume you need to do the following:



1. Install nVidia drivers

2. Restart X

3. Install game via wine setup.exe

4. Enjoy!



I bet only OpenGL compatible games are supported at the moment.

rpm:



To clarify a bit more, rpm does function similar to add/remove programs in windows but in more flexible way, it does track what you are installing(this is easily seen when you use gui rpm, it scans the rpm database for you as soon as you run it and display all the registered package), in text base rpm this is located in the query switch with the rpm command(its just not easily seen and can be difficult to interpret of its switching mechanism).  However it is right to say that rpm does prevent dependencies break ups but its main aim is just to bundle all the required files in a careful fashion thru its advance feature, compare that to windows install.exe where it can be made to just replace and delete things whenever it please.  This is also one of the main reason why developers prefer to use rpm rather than tar archive.

To clarify some more ;-)  Sendmail will send and receive mail primarily via smtp.  However, it will only receive mail locally as most remote clients uses pop3 or imap.  So, for instance, if you need to retrieve mail remotely with Outlook Express from a mail server, you'll need a pop3 service.

kppp sometimes rewrites /etc/resolv.conf after connecting, check your kppp settings for your dns. a quick check for dns resolve problems would be:



ping www.google.com

and

if you can ping the ip but not the fqdn, you have errors in /etc/resolv.conf

Samba is usually pretty straight forward and easy to setup.  In smb.conf, you need to make sure "encrypted pass" is enabled.  Then add users and pass to samba.

1. Does it prompt you for a user and password when you access samba in both linux and win98?

I've heard of this problem with w2k and older versions of samba, 2.2.0?  But not with the newer versions, and you said you're on RH 7.3 which comes with samba 2.2.2??



Have you tried using a different user instead?



1. Create a new user, has to be an Administrator Account, in w2k/xp; eg. seawolf (make one up)



2. Create a new user in Redhat;



$ useradd seawolf

$ passwd seawolf



3. Create password for the new user in samba.



$ smbpasswd -a seawolf

Post by: joelbryan on December 11, 2002, 01:31:38 PM
seawolf: is it because sa filesystem ng redhat 8.0, alam ko yung ext3 partition is masbago ng version, kaya yung luma distro could' not detect new ext3 partition, kung ganon, may chance na hindi mo ma oover write using incompatible version, kelangan mo is to delete all the filesystem red hat 8.0 created, under red hat installation.

BTW, bakit mo pinili yung lower version kaysa Red Hat 8.0, kasi maganda naman yung Red Hat 8.0, the best para sa akin compare sa ibang distro, last months ago I was Mandrake, pero ngayon, nagandahan talaga ako sa Red Hat 8.0, kasi can configure things like samba thru an icon, so easy to use, napaka organize, at halos lahat ng .tar.gz ko na me- "make & make install" ko without problems, unlike dati, spending hours and hours to compile an application, and recieve lot's of problems, "ease of mind" ako sa red hat 8.0, wla masyadong hazzle, ayus ang pagka gawa ng red hat 8.0, and impressed ako sa OpenGL compatibility, kung dati sobrang bagal ng tux racer sa not so cool video card ko, ngayon I can play tux racing w/out geforce or ati, and games thru winex are much faster, if you want "ease of mind", go through red hat 8.0.

make sure you have the ntfs module in your kernel libs. usually, it is in the /lib/modules/kernel-version. you can create a mountpoint in your /mnt or any directory and issue a mount -t ntfs /dev/hdax /mnt/directory. you can access it in read only mode though, as the write is still in experimental. :)

what do you mean on a partitioned hard drive? if you plan to run linux and win98 on a single drive I suggest you get parttition magic it would be easier to make a linux native partition and linux swap. some distros comes with their own partitioning software but I wouldn't recommend you using it PM is easier to use specially if you used to using win98.



Yup it can dual boot with win98se just read first about lilo you might destroy your MBR (master boot record) if you use it incorrectly.

not really sure about other distros i use slackware and during installation it asks if I would like to auto enable numlock during boot check you distro documentation dude

if your using redhat 7.2 i think they are using rpms to install softwares. Try http://www.rpmfind.net or http://www.rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php.



its like an install thingy gaya ng sa windows  you just execute the rpm and autoinstall ung package na dinownload mo. just make sure you do a search with the right system in your case system mo is "redhat 7.2"

not very well versed with debian distro. So far distro's I have tried in order:



redhat

mandrake

slackware



hmmm redhat is starting to be commercialized and well known kaya nagiging bloated ung distro nila daming mga programs na hindi kelangan for workstation purposes.



If you want a stable GUI desktop I would recommend mandrake so far as I have read on many linux websites mandrake is stable specially when it comes so X Desktop. Last time I used mandrake you can choose the packages you would like to install and meron GUI ung install program niya



right now i'm sticking with slackware been using it for 2 years already maybe it doesn't have the GUI install program like mandrake has, and its not as famous as the redhat distro but it gets the job done.. the installation script is plain but powerful. 1 good thing it's not bloated 1 CD lang and you can have a nice server/workstation up and running... only drawback is some of the config files are not auto setup.. you have to configure it up yourself...



hmm as far as i know these are the packages (its like the .exe install file) files distro's use:



redhat = rpm

mandrake = rpm too (not sure here)

debian = apt (or is it apt-get)

slackware = tgz



most distro's nowadays use rpm's coz most of the distro's were based on redhat just like philippine's very own linux distro known as "bayanihan linux" which was conceptualized from redhat 7.2

most distro's use rpm for packages



i would just recommend you downloading the ISO's for debian so you can have backup copies incase something goes wrong and hindi ka maka go online.

pero how does directories like /usr/bin work? automatic ba when you compile something dun napupunta yung executable?

Post by: IchorZephyr on April 06, 2003, 08:06:35 PM
usually pag compile sa /usr/local/<package name> pumupunta, pero kung rpm more often than not sa /usr/bin



/bin is where the supposed the very basic executable go

/usr/bin is where the other 'default' install goes, actually its supposed something like /usr/bin/<packagename>/<executables*> but the red hat released some early version where they placed their executables under /usr/bin and the trend has continued...



recommend you put programs you add under /usr/local or /opt

maraming possibilities kung baket ayaw umandar ung X server mo one thing is kung tama ung video driver that your using.. another thing ung mga refresh rates for the monitor baka malit ung settings... If you using Geforce or Gefroce2 cards I would recomment you download the linux drivers from:



http://www.nvidia.com/view.asp?IO=linux



Choose the one that suites your video card if i'm not mistaken IA32 is for 32MB Vidcards and IA64 is for 64MB vidcards just not sure what the AMD64 is for...



its an automated installer script just make sure you connected to the internet and run it from the console/commandline..
Title: FREE Linux Tutorial.
Post by: IchorZephyr on April 10, 2003, 02:26:56 PM
IA32 is for intel and amd based processors



IA64 is for itanium based processors



AMD64 is for 64bit amd processors



if your vid card is nvidia tapos walang rpm para sa inyo, make sure install mo yung linux kernel sources.



regarding the problems sa screen, as loudnesspunk said madaming possibilities.
Title: FREE Linux Tutorial.
Post by: pektus on April 10, 2003, 04:38:20 PM
@toppy001

try 'cat /proc/pci' or 'lspci' to see what card you have in your rig. then edit the XF86Config or XF86Config-4 in debian.



i encountered a special case in my setup here in the office. both commands stated above tells me there are 2 vidcards available on my machine (of course there is only one located in my agp) with an asus a7v333 motherboard. what i did was to target the physical id of the device..



from 'man XF86Config-4'



Screen  number

This option is mandatory for cards where a single PCI entity can drive more than one display (i.e., mul­tiple CRTCs sharing a single graphics accelerator and video memory).  One Device section is required for      each head, and this parameter determines which head each of the device sections applies to.   The  legal values  of  number  range  from  0  to one less than the total number of heads per entity.  Most drivers    require that the primary screen (0) be present.



the problem with this is, once you get to X-windows,  you can't get back to CLI (pressing ctl-alt-f8 then ctl-alt-f2, or quitting xwindows just gives me a blank screen).
Title: FREE Linux Tutorial.
Post by: toppy001 on April 10, 2003, 06:18:23 PM
ok. i'll try getting that from nvidia.



anyway, i'm running an old rig. 16 mb asus3800 with a vanta chipset yung video card ko.



i told xf86config and xf86cfg na rivatnt2 yung vid card ko kasi that's the one that worked nung naka-rhl7.2 ako. saka tiningnan ko yung XF86Config-4 tapos narecognize niya na vanta yung chipset ko with an "nv" driver.



btw ok lang ba na nilagay ko 16384kb para sa vid card ram ko? hindi ko kasi sure kung ilan yung 16mb in terms of kb so ginawa ko 4096kb * 4 = 4mb * 4 = 16384 kb = 16mb

Post by: pektus on April 11, 2003, 09:10:44 AM
@toppy001

if you already downloaded the nvidia driver from nvidia.com, you should read the docs included in it. afaik, you should at least replace "nv" with "nvidia", delete the dri line and add a glx (in the Modules section), etc...



also from "man  XF86Config-4"

VideoRam  mem

This  optional  entry specifies the amount of video ram that is installed on the graphics board. This is measured in kBytes.  In most cases this is not required because the X server probes the  graphics  board to  determine this quantity.  The driver-specific documentation should indicate when it might be needed.

System is Redhat Linux 6.0, S3 Virge graphics. Kasi, when I first installed Linux on the system, I had a serial mouse. But I've changed the serial mouse to a PS/2 mouse and the mouse pointer doesn't appear anymore in X Windows (I think "Enlightenment" is the desktop manager).

Normally drivers are written for a specific chipset and not for brands. Look what chipsets your board has and search for it on [url]www.google.com[url]. And it's not specific to any Linux distro since it resides in the kernel.

Sir,



pano mag clear memory sa redhat linux?



kasi may crond kami ..then dami nya load...



example...  memory ko is 192MB SDRAM



at first boot , hindi pa running crond namin consumed ko lang

sa memory is



35 processes: 33 sleeping, 2 running, 0 zombie, 0 stopped

CPU states:  0.9% user,  0.4% system,  0.0% nice, 98.5% idle

Mem:   191216K av,   46240K used,  144976K free,       0K shrd,    7324K buff

Swap:  128480K av,       0K used,  128480K free                   22916K cached





pero after matapos processing ng crond ko hindi na sya

clear memory. kya pag nagrun utli crond nagagamit na nya pati swap memory ko.. hindi nagrereset memory..



36 processes: 35 sleeping, 1 running, 0 zombie, 0 stopped

CPU states:  3.9% user, 11.6% system,  0.0% nice, 84.4% idle

Installing nVidia drivers for Mandrake.

The following are steps i'ved done for Mandrake 9.1.

uname -r >> 2.4.21-0.13mdk

cat /proc/version >> Linux version 2.4.21-0.13 mdk (xxx.mandrakesoft.com) (gcc version 3.2.2 (Mandrake Linux 9.1 3.2.2-3 mdk)).



1. Download NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4349.run

{had problems with NVIDIA-xxx-4363.run on both MD9.1 and RH9.0 (2.4.20)}.



2. In BIOS, plug and play os = off, assign irq to VGA.



3. Install kernel source (if it hasn't been installed yet).



4. Goto root, shutdown X.

Ctrl-Alt-F1, log in, su, /sbin/init 3



5. Goto /etc/X11, backup XF86config-4 (cp XF86Config-4 XF86Config-4.orig)



6. Goto directory where you placed NVIDIA-xxx.run file.

sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4349.run



7. Verify if it installed properly. Check /var/log/nvidia-installer.log , it should pass sanity check.



8. This step may not be necessary but it worked on older os and drivers install (i did it anyway :) ).

Goto /etc/security, vim console.perms, change <DRI> contents to <DRI>="/dev/3dfx*" (delete the "/dev/nvidia*").



9. /sbin/modprobe nvidia



10. Goto /etc/modules.conf and verify - alias /dev/nvidia* nvidia .

Change if there is another alias for nvidia.



11. This step i did just to make sure.

chmod 0666 /dev/nvidia*

chown root /dev/nvidia*



12. Edit XF86Config-4 in /etc/X11.

It should have Load "glx" in modules section and remove Load "dri" and Load "GLcore".

Change Driver "nv" to Driver "nvidia"

You can also do this step after step #6.



13. /sbin/depmod -ae



14. startx

You should see red background and a warning that you are running as root.



15. logout, reboot.



16. You see the nvidia logo and you can now play tuxracer :) .



# the above steps should also work for RH9.0, though you change XF86Config. I havent tried it yet though.

thre's a lot more sites for beginners, though suggest ko lang if you can find this disk - Pearson PTR's Interactive Training course for Red Hat Linux by Mark F. Komarinski. Once it is installed (in windows) you can see it as Prentice Hall Cyber Classroom - System Administration Multimedia Cyber Classroom. It discusses the 6.x version but its an excellent resource.



try to get also the sybex book on linux , those in tldp.org are updated though. if you are on dialup, the cd and book will be very helpful.



may documentation din included with your linux, it should be updated as well.



if you are serious in studying linux, suggest ko lang start ka on a separate hdd (or comp) for linux install so you can experiment and explore. read up on lilo and/or grub before going to dual boot with windows (have windows rescue/boot disk on hand, the "fdisk /mbr" will be of use in case of ... ). suggest ko lang, try to use ext3 also instead of ext2. to quote from - http://www.mandrakeusers.org/viewtopic.php?t=6388 (http://www.mandrakeusers.org/viewtopic.php?t=6388)



"I'll try to explain the filesystem types briefly.



First I need to subdivide the fs types into two categories: journaling and non-journaling.



Journaling filesystems include: xfs, jfs, reiserfs, and ext3. There might be one more but these are the major ones.



Non-journaling filesystems include: ext2, swap. The swap is a special partition type so I don't know if it really counts or not, just threw it in for completeness. It IS, however, it's own fs type, whether you use reiser or whatever, swap is swap.



The difference between journaling and non-journaling filesystems is that journaling fs's keep a log, or a journal, of bits written to the disk. This is also called a meta-data system, because in effect, data is stored bout the rest of the data on the disk. The benefit of keeping a log/journal of the rest of the info on the disk is for safety. Look at it this way:



Newbie lets his server run all day and all night. Once in awhile the power goes out and resets his computer. With a non-journaling fs like ext2 he may lose data and may experience filesystem corruption when the machine resets because the disk isn't properly finalized and unmounted safely. With a journaling filesystem, the filesystem compares the dates on the log with other info on the drive, replaying the log to repair/replace lost data. Did I mention it's really, really fast too? Ext2, in the event of a crash, forces fsck to run. Fsck is the filesystem checker utility that checks/repairs partitions much like scandisk on windows. Journaling filesystems don't require a fsck very often, if at all. They replay their logs and keep going. "



hmmm, you might want to try out Mandrake also (mas friendly newbie install). for automatic partition ng MD, it'll give you /, swap and /home. see also http://www.mandrakeusers.org/index.php (http://www.mandrakeusers.org/index.php) and their tutorials http://www.mandrakeusers.org/tutorials/linkster.php (http://www.mandrakeusers.org/tutorials/linkster.php). their faqs are also good - http://www.mandrakeusers.org/viewforum.php?f=29 (http://www.mandrakeusers.org/viewforum.php?f=29)

as for booting (or multi-booting), search for stuff about lilo (linux loader) or grub, depende kung ano yung default ng distro na gamit mo. with most distro's i think pwede ka ring mag-boot from a floppy.

if you're planning to use the entire disk space as a (Bayanihan) Linux partition;



1.  After booting from the Bayanihan Linux CD you'll get a list of different mouse models.  Select the type of mouse you're using (3 button PS/2, etc.)

2.  Disk partitioning setup screen: choose "manually partition with disk druid"

3.  if you've got 2 HDs and the 1st HD has 2 partitions you will see something like this:

/dev/hda

     /dev/hda1    NTFS,vfat (not sure about this)

    +/dev/hda2

     /dev/hda5    dos,vfat (again not sure)



your 2nd HD:

/dev/hdb, /dev/hdc, etc.



select your 2nd HD and delete its existing partitions if any

click "free" under your 2nd HD entry

click "New" > select "/boot" as the mount point and ext3 as filesystem, size in MB is 50 then ok

again "free" > ""New" > filesystem "swap" > size (swap space shall be 2x your installed RAM) then ok

"free" > "New" > mount point: "/" > filesystem: ext3 > size: leave it blank > select "ill to maximum allowable size" > OK



4.  timpla ka muna ng kape then nood ng senate hearing para malaman mo kung sinu-sino sa kanila ang di mo iboboto nxt election habang ini-install ang mga packages.



5.  apter 30 minits or mor mainit na ang ulo mo sa mga senador at mag-iisip ka nang mag-lead ng kudeta kahit di mo pa nakokontak si Honasan pero kool ka lang kasi pagkatapos mainstall lahat ng packages and mainstall ang boot loader magrereboot na ang system mo at babatiin ka ng grub boot loader menu.



6.  dahil sa katuwaan pagpapasensiyahan mo na silang lahat at pipiliin mo sa grub menu ang Bayanihan Linux then press enter.



7.  for Bayanihan Linux v.2.0 ang default username ay "root" (case sensitive dude) at ang password ay "bayanihan".



8.  Enjoy Linux.



9.  Try other distros too.

Halos ganun din and procedure.  I-defrag mo na lang muna yung 2nd HD mo bago ka mag-add ng bagong partition  using partition magic.  Di ako gumagamit ng partition magic kaya di ko alam ang options na meron yan pero oks lang din kasi once na mahati mo na yung 2nd drive pwede ka na mag-procede dun sa procedure na naipost ko above.  Just be very careful though kasi baka ang madelete mo na partition ay yung partition na merong laman na files.

Look for "Smart" relay in your sendmail.cf. You should see something like this:



Quote
DS




change it to:



Quote
DSyoursmtphostname




You didn't answer my last question. Maybe it's a lot better for your PHP script to connect directly to your sendmail server.

i'm using dual OS (Windows XP Pro and Linux Mandrake 9.1). i'd like to enjoy both OS sa internet pero, may problem sa modem. (di ko maconfigure). my modem is 3Com U.S. Robotics 56k V.90 (Serial) and i'm just new sa linux.



kapag pinapa autodetect ko sya, WINMODEM ang pagkakakilala sa kanya... may nababasa ako about kppp. this has something to do daw with the modem para gumana sa linux.

i found "SMART" relay and change DS to my semdmail server but nothing change, my script does'nt send any mail. why?



Actually, if this does'nt work, i want to directly connect to our mail server? but how?



my PHP config set to



             /usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i



i think the path is from my linux server, isn't it?

how can i point to my mail server? i think this is the best solution.

Post by: /dave/null on September 07, 2003, 11:36:50 PM
Seawolf,



by default, sendmail 8.12.9 in Redhat 8 only allows localhost to relay outside email. You just need to:



1. cd /etc/mail

2. edit "access" file to allow only your internal IPs to send mail

3. type "make"



to allow your eudora and outlook users to send email to the outside internet. Add the IP addresses of your dial-up pool as well. This is the most simple solution.



You can also try SMTP authentication via SSL. I'm not sure if Eudora mail supports it but Outlook does. I haven't tried it though.

cutnpaste from http://www.mandrakeusers.org/viewtopic.php?t=6873&start=45 (http://www.mandrakeusers.org/viewtopic.php?t=6873&start=45)



"What most people don't know is that:

 - All dvd-rom drives that are sold nowadays (at least here in Europe) are region limited. But they don't have a region selected, for the purpose of being able to sell the same model everywhere.

 - on windows, the software player asks the dvd drive what code the dvd disc is, and what region code the drive itself is set to. If the drive is not set to any code, the firmware tells it to set to the region of the disc, if the (windows) software itself is also set to this region. Then the disc can be played, as all other discs of the same region. If a disc is played from another region, the drive firmware will count up by one, the max count is 5. Meaning: after 5 changes of region, the drive will not change it's region code anymore, but remain set to whatever region it was last locked into.

(Btw for Linux there is a tool to set the region, it may be that if you don't use that the dvd drive refuses to play -- think it is called regionset... )



So: if you have some region 2 discs (europe) and some region 1 discs (America), and 1 region 4 disc (Australia), and you swap a bit, then the fifth time you decide to play your one and only region 4 disc: it better be good, since that will be the only one that you are going to be playing!



Now, some drives were sold without this counting mechanism, they are called 'RPC-1' drives. They cannot be sold in most parts anymore, the drives that count to 5 are called 'RPC-2' drives. On the web you can find plenty of firmwares for RPC-2 drives that turn them into RPC-1 drives. See also: http://www.firmware-flash.com/



After that, you have no more problem in linux since xine and mplayer don't check the code anyway; on windows you need something like dvd-genie to fool windvd/powerdvd that the disc is from the same region as the player."

Animate Lilo

Procedure below for MDK9.1

cutnpaste from http://www.mandrakeusers.org/viewtopic.php?t=2837 (http://www.mandrakeusers.org/viewtopic.php?t=2837) by post made by MottS.



1) Download the modified lilo and gfxboot with those links:

http://www-personal.umich.edu/~lrsmith/Linux/Rpms/gfxboot-1.4-30.i386.rpm

http://www-personal.umich.edu/~lrsmith/Linux/Rpms/lilo-21.7.5-54.i386.rpm



2) Download one of the 4 (you only need one!) animated lilo boot splash:

http://www.gamers.org/~quinet/lilo/xray-green.boot.gz

http://www.gamers.org/~quinet/lilo/xray-blue.boot.gz

http://www.gamers.org/~quinet/lilo/penguins.boot.gz

http://www.gamers.org/~quinet/lilo/breakout.boot.gz



3) Open a console (CTRL+T), su to root (su + password), cd to where you put the files and type the following commands:

Code:



gunzip AnimatedLiloBootSplash.boot.gz

mv AnimatedLiloBootSplash.boot /boot/

urpmi lilo-21.7.5-54.i386.rpm gfxboot-1.4-30.i386.rpm



The first two commands gunzip (unzip) the animated lilo boot splash and move the unzipped file to /boot. Replace 'AnimatedLiloBootSplash' by the file you downloaded in step 2. The last command install the modified version of lilo. The system will tell you that you need to uninstall the current lilo version. Just press enter here and it will uninstall lilo for you and install the version you just downloaded in step 1.



4) Modify /etc/lilo.conf to load your new boot splash instead of the boring one (message). Here is my /etc/lilo.conf. Notice that I only changed 'message=/boot/messages' for 'message/boot/xray-blue.boot'. I left the rest as it was.

Code:



vga=normal

message=/boot/xray-blue.boot

boot=/dev/hda

prompt

map=/boot/map

lba32

timeout=100

default="Linux"

image=/boot/vmlinuz

        label="Linux"

        root=/dev/hda6

        initrd=/boot/initrd.img

        append="quiet devfs=mount hdc=ide-scsi hdb=ide-scsi acpi=off"

        vga=788

        read-only





5) Run lilo !

Code:



/sbin/lilo -v



Reboot and enjoy !



---------------------------

for the complete text, see the link above.

my lilo.conf didnt have the "lba32", dinagdag ko yun sa bagong lilo.conf ko, la namang problem.

The default RedHat kernel has it enabled me thinks. All you need to install if it's not there yet are the dhcp RPMs.



AFAIK, RedHat tweaks the kernel that comes with RedHat Linux. Some kernel developers (e.g. Alan Cox) work for RedHat.

RedHat 9 has more recent RPM builds than 8. You can use both for desktop or server. If you research further, there are other viable alternatives for a Linux server than RedHat Linux.

with ssh you can login as root but i don't recommend this because if your server is open on public everyone can try brute forcing your system.

try mo change ang display manager mo, you can change it at - Configuration / Mandrake Control Center (will prompt for su pass)/ Hardware / Display Manager Chooser /

You can select from GDM, KDM, MdkKDM, XDM.

Am using MdkKDM.



Kung ayaw pa talaga, try mo sa Configuration / Mandrake Control Center (will prompt for su pass)/ Boot / Drakboot . Change mo yung  system autologin to KDE. word of warning though, sometimes this does something wierd to lilo (i meant using Drakboot to change the parameters).....



yung sa logout, sometimes kulang ang lumalabas, sa reboot blanko (KDE), pero if i choose another user, log in then log out, lumalabas ito. hindi rin masagot ito kahit sa ibang forums.....

i was able to run adsl connection using rp-pppoe (roaring penguin 3.5), but when i installed another NIC (eth1, facing our private lan) for connection sharing i began to have problems connecting to adsl. here's the error i got every time i issue /usr/sbin/adsl-start :

Installation



Before installing make sure you have the Mesa development package and the XFree86 development package installed.





What's the Mesa and XFree86 dev packages usually called, at least in debian? I got most of the xlib* packages just to be sure.



And wine/tools/wrc/lex.ppl.c always causes an error during compilation... Does the version of the compiler have anything to do with this? I'm using gcc-3.3.

how to sync samba and windows users using winbind?



any ideas?



If you have a Windows domain controller in your organization, Samba allows you to authenticate Linux users via the domain.

i d/k as am on Mandy. the one's in my system are these though...

----

Name: XFree86-devel

Version: 4.3-5mdk

Name: libMesaglut3-devel

it seems that the XFree86-devel is crucial as from other sites kailangan daw talaga, am using nvidia drivers so sa tingin ko lang di na ginagamit yung mesa, though nandiyan na rin yung mesa devel ;) .

domeng,

finally got it working (pppoe), your suspicion is as good as my friend was...

the nic "did" change their name, dunno why though.



here's what i did (also for reference to some who might encounter this)

i removed the nics' configuration, restarted the system, let kudzu detect the 2 nic, let them active but did nothing to their net configs (hence both dhcp enabled)..and connects successfully.



one thing though, when i issued "adsl-start", the connection timed out..but if when i used tkpppoe (roaring penguin's gui) .. it connects easily.



anyways, ok na naman siya..thanks for your help!

i am using samba with winbind in redhat linux with

security = domain in smb.conf however a windows client can access a share in the samba server only if the samba server name is added in the logon to restriction option in the Win 2k Active Directory.

 For example: username john can login only to computer ALPHAONE, he

can only access the samba share if i add the samba server name for ex. SAMBA in the list of  the computers he can logon to. Any suggestions on how to bypass this?

testnburn. I think separate ata ang config files ng gui and non gui.

tkpppoe stores it at "/etc/ppp/rp-pppoe-gui/conf.something" and the non-gui (adsl-start) stores it in "/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ppp0". I just found this out by grepping a little :) anyways di ako masyadong sure so feel free to correct me. Oo nga pala. You can config your connection thru "adsl-setup".

Conextant-Rockwell based internal modems usually won't work with Linux by default. I think it's a patent issue or something... Anyway, check out www.tldp.org. Look for their modem-HOWTO. There's a link there that would point you to the latest Linux driver.



As for sound, I have an 8K9A and mine's using a VIA module. Myabe you should get the Linux nForce support from www.nvidia.com.

Even better, postfix + mailscanner + spamassassin.



You can't really compare spamassassin to mailscanner. Mailscanner can use spamassassin to enhance it's anti-spam function. Mailscanner can also be used to scan viruses from emails. Mailscanner can also query DNSBL sites to check the origin of mails and check if they came from servers known to be sending spams.



Mailscanner can also detect possible vulnerable mails that can exploit Microsoft Outlook and can block certain files like .exe, .pif, .dll, etc.

Title: FREE Linux Tutorial.
Post by: Guest on December 14, 2003, 01:31:06 AM
i havent tested this as am not using XP (sa 98/ME dual boot, fdisk /mbr lang eh)...



1. Make the CD-ROM the first Boot Device in the BIOS.

2. Boot from the XP CD or the installation disks.

3. At the Welcome screen, press F10.

4. Select Repair.

5. Select Console.

6. Type in - and then press [Enter]

      FIXBOOT

    Answer Y. You sometimes must specify the system partition (read FIXBOOT).

7. Type in Exit to exit the Console/reboot. Rectify BIOS's first Boot Device. Test.



May nakikita rin akong instructions na pressing F1 instead of F10...

Boot from the first cd, hit F1 at the splash screen, type "rescue", and choose the option to restore the mbr.



To those who can still access the root...

As root type # lilo -u and say good-bye to lilo. This will not only remove lilo, but it will also reinstall the XP boot loader.

could you boot slackware with the CD?



by passing the command... (for the Slackware CD.... {disc 1} )



boot: bare.i root=/dev/hdaX noinitrd rw



this should let you get in your Slack system...



then just liloconfig your way out.

I searched and you are right, there had been problems in the past with lilo and ntfs.

@Disneycute,

Am using Mandrake 9.1,



Quote
pano gumawa ng shortcut para sa dial-up connection??


This came from mandrakeusers.org - www.mandrakeusers.org (http://www.mandrakeusers.org)

"Well.. kppp is the easiest to use, at least for me. It is not installed by default (which is a stupid decision by mandrake imo), but it's available in your installation disks. To install it, just type this command as root

urpmi kdenetwork-kppp



Or use mandrake control center -> software -> software -> install software and search for kppp"



Am guessing na you did a normal install ng Mandrake at ginagamit mo KDE.



Quote
pwede bang 2 or more ISPs???


Yup, sa KPPP menu, you can press setup para makapunta ka sa KPPP configuration. Press "new" in the accounts section.

After you input the details, you can select isp to use sa KPPP menu by selecting in the "Connect to".

Press the "help" then "KPPP Handbook" sa KPPP menu for more info.



Quote
pano makita yung connection speed?


hmmm, as Teejz had stated , in KPPP, mayroong KPPP Statistics where it will show

bytes in, bytes out, packets, vcomp, etc. May graph din showing input bytes in blue and output in red (you can change the colors in KPPP Configuration/Graph), with current and max values (d/k if this is up or down or averaged) in kb/sec . Sa download naman, if you use kget, kita mo kung gaano kabilis ang download.



ok, here's my shameless plug:

Disneycute, since you are using Mandrake, would you like to visit MandrakeUsers.org? Home -www.mandrakeusers.org (http://www.mandrakeusers.org)

Its a friendly community of Mandrake users, its not affiliated with Mandrake, tons of useful info on Mandrake Linux, and did i mentioned it is a friendly board? :)

Yung board "attitude" is like PPC, you'll feel right at home. my nick there is "james", some Pinoys there are Ramfree17 (he's a mod there, also known in PLUG as Ramfree26), Ral (d/k if he's the same Ral we have here...), etc.



btw, i dont get any financial or monetary reward for plugging the site, its just that the info in the site helped me a lot with Mandrake Linux and i wont hesitate to recommend the site to anyone using Mandrake. :)

Conexant Modem Drivers (Free Source)



Saw this at mandrakeusers.org...



"Linuxant have started charging for their conexant modem drivers for Linux. They do offer a free version of the drivers, but they limit the modem's speed to 14.4 - useless.



The windows drivers are free!  Of course, they are produced by the manufacturer and are not third party, so I guess I do understand this.



Anyway, if you don't want to pay for the drivers, I've found the free driver source, which you can download here:"



HCF Drivers - http://www.geektyme.org/~soulse/conexant/HCFPCIMODEM_0_99LNXTBETA0304.tar.gz (http://www.geektyme.org/~soulse/conexant/HCFPCIMODEM_0_99LNXTBETA0304.tar.gz)



HSF Drivers - http://www.geektyme.org/~soulse/conexant/hsflinmodem-5.03.27.tar.gz (http://www.geektyme.org/~soulse/conexant/hsflinmodem-5.03.27.tar.gz)



Download the hcf or hsf according to your setup and install as follows (you must have the kernel source installed):



CODE:



$ tar -xzf package.tar.gz

$ cd /directory_that_was_created

$ su

<passwd>

# make install

# hsfconfig _or_ hcfconfig

You're welcome Disneycute. :)



------

Para sa system mo, use the 4496 driver (Linux IA32) - NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2.run.

Instructions to install here - http://www.mandrakeusers.org/index.php?showtopic=4567 (http://www.mandrakeusers.org/index.php?showtopic=4567)

kung magkaproblema ka, i had posted before my alternate procedure here - http://www.pinoypc.net/tehboard/viewthread.php?thread=5206&page=19 (http://www.pinoypc.net/tehboard/viewthread.php?thread=5206&page=19). Step 11 has to be done para magload ang nvidia drivers kahit di ka nakaroot.



Am currently using 4620 Beta - NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4620-pkg1.run - Download - http://public.pny.com/quadro/FX3000g/Linux/ (http://public.pny.com/quadro/FX3000g/Linux/)

If you installed 4496 and X is working pero you are experiencing lockups during application, try to use the 4620. (Nope, i did not experience lockups sa 4496, am just testing out 4620 :) ).



For you to install the nVidia drivers, you need the kernel source installed. unfortunately, it's not included in the cds.

check mo muna kung ano ang kernel mo by typing "uname -r"

If you are using the download edition, it should be kernel 2.4.22-10mdk.

Download the kernel source for kernel 2.4.22-10mdk here - ftp://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/os/Linux/distr/Mandrake/Mandrake/9.2/i586/Mandrake/RPMS (http://ftp://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/os/Linux/distr/Mandrake/Mandrake/9.2/i586/Mandrake/RPMS)

Yung nasa ibang mirrors kasi ay yung updated na kernel source na kasi may problema ang kernel 2.4.22-10mdk with LG cdrom drives.



download kernel source, then urpmi kernel-source[your version that matches what uname tells you you are running] should do the trick.



More info here - http://www.mandrakeusers.org/index.php?showtopic=10098&st=0 (http://www.mandrakeusers.org/index.php?showtopic=10098&st=0)

Here are some stuff that I still _have_ to learn in Linux.



1.) how to dualboot using GRUB.

- I've been using LILO for dualbooting since I have a FAT partition and Windows 98 on dualboot.



2.) learn how to make PPP dialup scripts. (asides using KPPP).

- Since I am on cable... and on my dialup days.... I just use KPPP.



3.) know how to samba... (done)

- Just finished this, when I had to transfer my /home directory to my brother's Windows's box so I could backup. Google is my friend... ahehehe..... and the manpages too.



4.) run WINE.

- why use WINE when I have tons of free software lying around... well... since I don't have load everytime, I had to use Chikka on my sister's box just to text. And the friggin JavaLite on Chikka won't work after I downloaded and installed the Java plugins.

pagkaalam ko, wala pang shockwave support sa linux, though supported na ang flash player.

Post by: Guest on December 31, 2003, 08:56:15 AM
Yung dinownload mo ba yung sa mplayerhq? That should be in tar.bz2.

From here - http://www.ece.mcgill.ca/~wentsern/index3.html (http://www.ece.mcgill.ca/~wentsern/index3.html) ...



Tarballs Bzipped

.tar.bz2 - Tarball compressed with bzip

localhost]$ bunzip2 <file.tar.bz2>

localhost]$ tar -xvf <file.tar>

(the command is done in CLI / terminal )



that should uncompress you a directory with same name as the compressed file.

cd to the directory

"./configure --prefix=/usr" , normally gusto ng MDK na ilagay sa /usr ang progs mo. standard command though is "./configure" . You can also use "./configure" if you prefer.

"make"

su

"make install"



if everything goes well, the program should be installed.

in installing from source, you normally have a lot of progs installed, you will need Qt, probably bison, and some other programs that the source requires para macompile siya.

Missing Screensavers in Kde of Mandake 9.1 and 9.2



This came from post of AussieJohn of www.mandrakeusers.org

----------

Open up Konqueror and click on VIEW then click on SHOW HIDDEN FOLDERS.



Go to /usr/share/applnk-mdk/.hidden/screensavers.

in there you will see a .directory, open it with Kwrite and you will most likely see a text something along the lines of

[Desktop Entry]

Name=ScreenSavers

Icon=applications_sections.png

Type=Directory

Name [eng_Gb] = ScreenSavers



This entry is wrong and needs to be edited to read PRECISELY as follows:-



[Desktop Entry]

Icon=go.png

Type=Directory

X-KDE-BaseGroup=screensavers

Name [en]=ScreenSavers



Upper and lower case must be correct as shown.



Save the changes and reboot. All your screensavers should now reappear in KDE.

Keep in mind that this must also be done in your account.

Cheers and hope this helps everyone.



PS this only applies to Screensavers that have got lost and not to screensavers that have not already been installed.



A previous reader of my original post very kindly posted it to Mandrakes help site.

The tragedy is that my solution is only a repair of the problem. The cause of the problem has existed in Mandrake9.1 and it is now also in 9.2 and seems to be caused whenever you do rpm updates or upgrades. It rewrites the .directory into an unusable form for no good reason at all.

----------



To edit the .directory /usr/share/applnk-mdk/.hidden/screensavers, you need the FileManager (Konq) in su. (or use terminal / CLI in su to edit)

In your account (no need for su), the .directory will be in /home/XXXX/.kde/share/applnk-mdk/.hidden/ScreenSavers where XXXX is your account name.

Did anyone change their isolinux.cfg in their Slax (Slackware Live) ISO?



I have tried both 2.9.x & the latest 3.x release. I used Nero to burn the ISO, providing right burning options. Now when I bootup teh CD, the whole contents load (vmlinuz, etc) and then I get an error.



Quote

Cannot find IMG files!

Specify it using livecd_subdir





I forgot what it says, but that's pretty much how it looks like. I thought burning the ISO would be boot & ready for use.



There are no problems with the CD-ROM I'm using. It can read all the contents, but I'm confused tho...



I haven't tried to bootup with livecd_subdir=/base/ (where the IMG files are?). I thought it would be in that dir, since they're all IMG files. The default livecd_subdir value is =/, but that doesn't seem to work.



I'm too lazy to copy again, since I've wasted a couple of CD-R's from the authors mistake :p

Missing files huh. No wonder my SLAX can't boot... :|



teejay, could you please try out the latest SLAX when it's released. para maka save ako sa mga CD-R discs, in case there should be any troubles.



I haven't even tried the Slackware LiveCD 2.x releases. I tried out the last 2.x version, but the CD ISO had some problems I guess. When the whole thing loads, I'm getting some CD badsector problems. It's probably the CD writting software I used, or I could had used bad CD ISO writting options. I used DiscJuggler, but now I'm using Nero.

Thanks for teh info teejz :)



I'm gonna give Slax another chance, but this time, with a CD-RW disc...



I just tried out damnsmalllinux, which is based on Debian/Knoppix, and it turns out that it doesn't like a few monitors. Uppon bootup, the screen would go into sleepmode and such. This was tried on a generic monitor, not branded tho.

Err... DSL worked fine for me... that was my pocket distro before because it could fit in a calling card CD, and I could slip it in my wallet. But I still liked the feel of SLAX since I'm more accustomed to using Slackware. So I got Slackware-Live... a bit larger 8cm CD but it packed more features. I got it to fit in my wallet.. and I have both SLAX and DSL handy just in case. :)



Good luck on SLAX.

I'm trying to install Red Hat 9.0 on my system with Windows XP Pro with SP1.



I have two hard disks, a 20 G and 40 G.  The smaller hard disk is partitioned into two equal sizes while the bigger HD is not partitioned. Drive C: has only about 1.97 G left, D: has about 7 G and F:(my 40 G HD) ha about 12 g of space left.



My question is where is the best place to place Linux system/swap files.  Do I have to partition my 40 G hd(using Partition Magic 8) to allot space for the Linux installation? I bought The Mastering redhat Linux 9 CD but the installation instructions are just too simple to be true.



Browsing to HOWTO guides at the Linux Documentation Project it is not that simple. Do I use LILO or Grub or just follow the GUI installation instructions?  Do I have to edit the boot.ini upon installation of RH9 as I read like so:

Quote
Boot into Linux and copy the boot image from the first sector of your boot partition. You'll want to take 512 bytes of this partition once, and write it out to a file called bootsect.lnx. The entry should look like:



dd if=/dev/hdX of=/bootsect.lnx bs=512 count=1



Move that file onto your c: drive and edit boot.ini, adding the following line:



c:ootsect.lnx="Linux"

My floppy controller is shot right now so that I cannot make bootable linux rescue diskettes.  Has anybody tried creating a bootable cd that includes all the files in the 3 diskettes?

I think you can make a boot cd that includes the diskette images.

Post by: meateater on January 17, 2004, 08:59:05 AM
@spolarium I don't think you need those rescue diskettes.

You can try to boot from the rh9 disk 1 and type in linux rescue. It will let you go to the command prompt at single user mode. You can then fix your problem from there.

For the swap file, usually the practice is its 2x bigger than your current memory. And also the norm for placing it is on the same drive as your "/".

Anyways the swap can be changed easily on /etc/fstab just in case you would want to.

For installing. If you already have winxp pre installed on your drive. Just follow the gui install it wont crap out your mbr. But if you have linux already installed and want to install xp, that is a different story since winxp doesnt care if linux is installed and it will overwrite the mbr, thus you would have to boot using your boot disk and fix the boot thru the grub commandline.

I hope this helps. :)

I've read this also and reflects the monopolistic attitude of MS.  After reading your input, I feel more confident in installing RH9.



Another question, will RH9 able to recognize built-in LAN in the mobo? I have an nforce2 mobo and anticipating this might be a problem.

Redhat should detect the built in lan if its a realtek chip. If its the Nforce lan, you should use the ia32 drivers from nvidia. Take note that the installation of the drivers edits your /etc/modules.conf.

The behavior of the nvidia nforce drivers sets the nvnet (nforce lan) to eth0, thus overriding your current config.

So you might have to fix your network settings a little bit.

In my case, what happened is im using the realtek lan as the default. After I installed the nforce drivers I was suprised that I wasn't able to connect to PLDT  DSL. It turned out that nvidia messed with the modules.conf.

Well the solution is pretty straitforward. Just edit the modules.conf and set it as you want.

Cheers!!

Plan:  Dual boot Windows XP and RH9.0



Rig:

Athlon Barton 2500@3200+

768 MB RAM

GF4 Ti4200 video card

Soundblaster Live! DE 5.1

Promise TX2 Ultra 100 ide controller

USB 2.0 4 port card

12x cd-rw drive

16x dvd-rom drive



20 g HD:  C: and D:

40  g HD:  F:

60 g HD:  /dev/hde



Initial install of RH9 I opted to load the boot loader at the / partition of /dev/hde and chose Windows as the default.  So on booting up, it only boots to Windows and no RH.  Googled and saw the same problem in this link: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/archive/1/2002/12/3/36063 (http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/archive/1/2002/12/3/36063)



Reading on old RH7.2 boot loader installations, it states that it is safe to put the boot loader on the MBR which on my drive is located on the 20 g drive with the C: partition and where Windows is installed.The link:  http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/RHL-7.2-Manual/install-guide/s1-guimode-bootload.html (http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/RHL-7.2-Manual/install-guide/s1-guimode-bootload.html)

Is this still the same with RH9?



Further reading saw also this:  http://www.jalug.org/learning/triple-boot-system/view (http://www.jalug.org/learning/triple-boot-system/view) but I don't know if it's any help.



Appreciate feedback from the Linux gurus.  Thanks.

Doc Spol,  recommended na ilagay sa MBR para mas madali dual boot. I have to agree with Teejz na mas madali gamitin ang grub in dual boot with xp (grub ang default ng rh) since up to now i still see some people having problems with lilo (though a lot are using lilo with xp without any problems).

mas cute nga lang lilo as you can animate it (it's somewhere in this thread though the instructions are for mandrake).

Post by: axelj96 on February 03, 2004, 05:19:40 AM
@jdg

same hd but different partitions?

yes, it can be done. ganyan nga most dual boots (even triple boot).

no problem if winxp is in ntfs as long as the whole drive has not been allocated to winxp. use partition magic  to create / resize your hdd partitions.

if you install grub or lilo bootloaders in mbr, it wont matter even if winxp is ntfs.

hirap nga lang sa redhat maginstall sa unpartitioned space (mandrake can easily do it).

even using partition magic is not the optimum, mas maganda kung pwede mong i-fdisk uli, make 2 partitions, put xp in ntfs sa una, place rh9 sa second partition.

Title: FREE Linux Tutorial.
Post by: axelj96 on February 03, 2004, 12:36:26 PM
nope, ok na setup mo. nagkakaroon lang ng problema kung yung buong hd ay isang partition lang na ntfs. afaik, di kaya ng redhat install na i-resize ang isang ntfs partition safely to create space for linux (mandrake install can this safely, but this will enable ntfs write capability which is not recommended, though you can do it ...).

25Gig is more than enough even for a complete options install....

well you can delete partitions e, and f thru disk management.

Then install linux from cd. And partition with disk druid. Make sure to create a swap partition (size is 2x your ram size), your root partition (labeled "/"), also you can create a home partition which is optional but a better practice to put it as a separate partition, so you can keep it during a clean install ( labeled "/home" )

Boot into Windows XP cd, there's an option to  install, repair, etc.  Choose the option to install, WinXP will detect your previous XP installation and will ask you the option to repair, then say yes.  This will repair and overwrite the GRUB boot loader.



Check also the /Fixboot and /Fixmbr options as I am not that sure about these.

Spending most of my computer time with RH 9.0 today and I seem to have a problem of my built-in lan card not detected.  Installed the latest Linux drivers from Nvidia.  The card is seen by RH9.0 but on activating the card an error message states that, "eth0 is not present, delaying configuration..."



Any ideas?



On the bright side, I was able to install Linux Nvidia drivers for my GF4 Ti4200 and Tux Racer looks more fun to play now.



I got this great printing utility, Turboprint 1.86, http://www.turboprint.de/english.html (http://www.turboprint.de/english.html), which has a lot of drivers for different kinds of black and color printers.  I had a problem with my Canon i850 printing with faded colors with black and colored inks and this printing utility did the trick of solving my printing problems.  Thanks to Matthew Stavert at the  ph-linux-newbie mailing list for suggesting this utility.

Post by: spolarium on February 08, 2004, 10:02:25 PM
TurboPrint is great if you pay for it.  The free demo version prints out the Turboprint logo almost 3/4 of the page.  



I went to LinuxPrinting.org and got instead the compatible printer driver BJC 7004 and the test print was satisfactory.  My printer is the Canoni850.  



Put the blame on Canon for not really putting an effort to make Linux drivers for their printers.  See their report card here:  http://www.linuxprinting.org/vendors.html (http://www.linuxprinting.org/vendors.html)



So moral of the lesson is,  if you're shifting to Linux, get a printer with robust Linux drivers.  Another good tip from the ph-linux-newbie mailing list.

@meateater, na-solve ko na :)  Thanks for asking.



I installed a driver for the Nforce2 chipset that is not compatible with my kernel so I downloaded the source rpm and compiled it with my present kernel.  Two guys from ph-linux-newbie list suggested this approach.

Hi,



I'm just about to start using linux for the first time. I've borrowed the redhat 9 cds from my friend and was just about to install it, to have dual boot sana with my windows xp.



i have 2 harddrives, drives C and F. drive F contains the windows xp installation, while the boot.ini of XP is in drive C (kasi dati may installation din na XP sa C, e nasira XP, so i reiinstalled XP to F, tpos ung boot.ini nandun na sa C).



drive C and F is NTFS. drive C is 32.2GB used, and 4.99GB free.



Can I install redhat 9 on drive C? i don't want to touch drive F kasi andun yung windows XP...pero my boot.ini is in drive C, will this cause a problem?



ano yung una ko dapat gwin? i read on the internet na prtition daw...may kasama na po bang tool/utility ang red hat 9 sa cd na magpapartition? will 4.99GB be more than enough?



thanks!

Can I install redhat 9 on drive C?




Yes.  Allocate about 2 Gb for the /root, 100 MB for the /boot partition,  for the  /swap partition (about 500 mb to 1 G or more, depends on the amount of memory you have, usually the swapfile is twice the amount of your memory).



Quote
may kasama na po bang tool/utility ang red hat 9 sa cd na magpapartition?




May kasama siya ang tawag ay Disk Druid at graphpical ang interface.  Kaya hindi naman masyadong problema.  I recommend manual ang partition para mailagay mo doon sa drive c na free space.



Print out the pdf file on the installation or you can read it here:  https://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/RHL-9-Manual/install-guide/ (https://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/RHL-9-Manual/install-guide/)



Use the GRUB boot loader and usually it will identify and include your Windows OS in  that option when you boot again after finishing installing RH9.  It identifies WinXP as DOS but you can always edit it and name it as Windows XP.

Use Partition Magic 8 to recover or convert the partition from ext3 to FAT32.  Some say FDISK will do it but have not tried it yet.

I did not see that your drive C:  is a NTFS drive.  You might have a problem installing RH9.  You might have to convert that free space in C: into FAT32 as RH9 cannot read NTFS.

@spol, rh9 can read ntfs but not write. But you have to install the ntfs rpm in domengs link.

From what I know, legal issue is the cause why ntfs was not supported in rh9.

But this requires that RH9 is already installed so it can recompile and include the modude into the kernel.  His setup is he has NTFS partitions, can Disk Druid see these partitions and remove them?
Title: FREE Linux Tutorial.
Post by: meateater on February 18, 2004, 10:05:56 PM
yes. RH9 can see the partition per se. but not the contents of the partition. so you can even use disk druid to delete the ntfs partition. if you choose expert mode. fdisk (linux cmd line) can also see the partition, its has fstype HPFS/NTFS.

People with the latest  Linux Kernel:



Linux Kernel Flaws Uncovered  

Quote
The vulnerability affects the 2.6.x branch prior to version 2.6.3 and the Linux kernel memory management code.



Experts note that the latest bug is unrelated to a previous vulnerability in the same internal kernel function code.



Users are urged to update to version 2.6.3 at the Linux Kernel Archives.



According to an advisory issued by Secunia, a boundary error in the "ncp_lookup()" function causes the privilege escalation flaw.



"This can be exploited to cause a stack overflow and may allow execution of arbitrary code with escalated privileges," the Copenhagen-based research firm warned.



The bug could also cause denial-of-service attacks (define) on the available system memory.

Section "Device"

   # no known options

# ingat ka kasi baka "nv" yung saiyo, palitan mo ng "nvidia" pagkatapos mo install yung # driver ng videocard mo!

   VendorName  "NVIDIA"

   BoardName   "GeforceFx 5600"

   VideoRam    131072

   Option      "NvAgp" "1"

# NvAgp kung ano gagamitin mo driver mo sa agp mo, agpgart or nvidia (1 is nvidia 2 is # agpgart 3 is pagwala agpgart then nvidia)

   Option      "RenderAccel" "Enable"

#   Option       "UBB" "on"

# UBB is for quadro card only, default on if quadro card is use, no effect on geforce   

#   Option      "WindowFlip" "Enable"

# WindowFlip is for quadro only enable UBB first

#   Option      "Overlay" "on"

# Overlay for quadro only

   BusID       "PCI:3:0:0"

   Option       "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "DFP, TV"

ito yung config file ko! ingat ka sa BUSID magkaiba yan depend sa mobo, pwede mo rin alisin yan wag mo na lang specify, hayaan mo yung driver maghanap.

where are you connecting from ? the fwall box or behind it? if from the fwall, then yes you could login to the servers via ssh. if from a machine behind the fwall, then yes also since there are no forward rules and the default is accept.



the logic if initiated from the fwall box, it initiates an ssh session and is allowed since you have no output rules and a default accept policy on the output chain. the reply coming back from any of the servers will be accepted also via this rule

to test your firewall rules if they have been traversed, do the ff:

1) zero out all packet and byte counters ( iptables -Z -L), the -L option list the counters immediately before they are cleared.

2) from the remote machine, initiate a session.

3) list out your running rules ( iptables -nvL chain name ) where chain name is optional and note the packet and byte counters. the counters will show what rule was hit by the packet.

actually successful naman boot mo sa linux kaya lang naka-runlevel 2 ka kaya default lang sa shell. gusto mo siguro mangyari yung boot mo is graphical interface such as kde. kung di mo naisama sa installation ang kde, gnome, etc. try mo reinstall ang mandrake.



you can make gui as your default interface by clicking yes when you were asked to boot in gui. but of course you must test your video card setting para di ka magkaroon ng problema sa startup process.

@crazysniper

depends on who you're talking to. some would talk about the free apps they can get, or the open-source nature of the apps and the os, for some they like the unlimited opportunities of being able to tinker and tweak their systems they way they want it to be. some would talk about security and less vulnerabilities, other would want it simply because it's not windows. right now, gaming is not one of the strengths of linux. so keep that windows partition there for gaming. :)

yung mga clients ba gumagamit ng active directory service? your problem is actually windows related, not linux.



from windows help and support center:



Quote
When the computers belong to an family Active Directory domain, Windows Time Service configures itself automatically, using Windows Time Service that is available on domain controllers. Windows Time Service configures a domain controller within its domain as a reliable time source and synchronizes itself periodically with this source. These settings can be modified or overwritten, depending on specific needs.







to synchronize the client time with a time server:



w32tm /resync



To synchronize an internal time server with an external time source:







Type the following, where PeerList is a comma-separated list of Domain Name System (DNS) names or Internet protocol (IP) addresses of the desired time sources:



w32tm /config /syncfromflags:manual /manualpeerlist:PeerList





Type:

w32tm /config /update

Slackware 10.0 is released!



Summer's here, and the time is right for a new release of Slackware (so start dancin')! As always, thanks to the many dozens of people who contributed during this development cycle to help make this the best release of Slackware ever.



Highlights of the 10.0 release include GCC 3.3.4 (with GCC 3.4.0 as an alternate in /testing), the Linux 2.4.26 kernel (with Linux 2.6.7 as an alternate choice in /testing), X11R6.7.0 from X.Org, Mozilla 1.7, GNOME 2.6.1, and KDE 3.2.3. Of course, there are many more improvements than can be listed here (considering that the ChangeLog has grown more than 2000 lines since the last release).[/b]

If you're going to dual-boot, don't use fedora core 2. Several users have mangled their boot partitions. It can be recovered but do you really want that hassle?



All the distros you listed are good. I started from Slackware, tried Mandrake and stayed with Redhat/Fedora.

hello to all the guru's



i am planning a network installation (NFS) to install RH9 in my laptop. but when I type the command ifconfig it only displays lo and deosn't show any eth device (i have 2 built in ethernet)



i ran setup and choose the Network Configuration Tool. I assigned IP address as well as the subnet mask.



i went to the directory /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ and looked for ifcfg-eth0 file



it is existing but the color of the text is white while the others are green.



i edited it and currently have the following figures:



DEVICE=eth0

IPADDR=192.168.XXX.X1

NETMASK=255.255.255.XXX

NETWORK=192.168.XXX.X0

ONBOOT=yes



i then restarted the network and it seems ok. but after executing ifconfig again, the device isn't appearing.



i wonder...

amd-nforce ba ang board mo?  if yes,  nvidia main site has the linux nforce UDP drivers for RH9  which include the nvnet module.   i use these myself so it works!

I copied the contents of RH9 intallers to /root/data/rh9 directory.

medyo rusty na ako on NFS but i recall that you need to be run the ff on the NFS server (not sure kung sa client din):



/etc/init.d/nfs   start

/etc/init.d/nfslock   start

/etc/init.d/portmap   start



nfs script will run the nfs daemons while nfslock will run the nfs file locking services while portmap will run the RPC Portmapper.

OT:



a couple of months ago i enrolled at MFI and took Linux Sys Ad and Linux Network Ad.



Naintindihan ko ung sys ad kasi magaling yung instructor. he even uses the projector to present the topics being discussed.



On the 2nd module which is linux network, i was surprised nung nakita ko na iba ang instructor (kasi umuwi ng province yung dapat na instructor namin kasi may patay sila).  first day of class he's an hour late. and he has always been for the whole week. pag pasok niya uupo at magkakape while listening to his FM capable cellphone. then magsusulat ng topic and will say "O, alam niyo na gagawin, check ko mamaya kung mapapagana niyo". bihira siya mag discuss and magsulat sa whiteboard. and kapag nag discuss siya he thinks all of us (students) know or at least has an idea what we we're talking about.



in short wala ako masyado naintindihan. kaya eto ako nagtatanong tanong...



i tried to post my question (re: NFS) to the yahoo groups they have created. at ang reply sakin ng instructor ko sa linux network ay:



Quote
] Enrolled kaba ng linux 2?

] Kase halatang di ka nakinig or di ka enroll hehehhe




oh well... ang sinabi ko na lang is:



ah ok... nice reply... oh i forgot may google nga pala.



btw? what's this group all about? linux? it seems that this is an ASL group.

mount: st-ype ntfs not supported by kernel




It means the ntfs driver is not compiled in or not loaded yet (assuming you already have the rpm installed). Unlike other distros, RedHat/FC packages exclude these stuff together with MP3 support to avoid litigation. Either you:



1. Compile the driver yourself

2. Quick and dirty: http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/rpm/fedora2.html (http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/rpm/fedora2.html)



Be sure to read http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/rpm/instructions.html (http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/rpm/instructions.html) carefully if you decide to use #2.



I'm using FC1 and no problems mounting my NTFS partitions.

Post by: morpheus08 on July 15, 2004, 10:54:32 AM
use a custom kernel with ntfs support enabled. you can also check if modules are available for ntfs in /lib/modules/{kernel version}/kernel/blah-blah... it has an extension of .o. then use insmod to load it. lsmod to list all loaded modules.

i used to install RH9 without a problem on the PC with a Radeon 9100 card and a MAG 770fs. Lately, with the same hardware, I can't seem to do startx. The error presents a problem with the display which indicates that it is an unprobed monitor. I'm guessing that it has something to do with the bios but I already tried modifying the settings a bit with the same "unprobed monitor" outcome. Any inputs regarding on fixing this?

@teejz, you dont need to recompile if you are using stock kernel.

Due to legal issues kaya alang native ntfs support.

kaya download tayo ng kernel rpm, pero di sya kernel module. I was able to do that on fc1 and rh, but not with fc 2.

It's just that I wasn't aware that Red Hat/FC doesn't have NTFS mounting compiled in the RH/FC base/stock/default kernel by default. Since I got so used to my distro having that compiled in the stock kernel. I was just reading up on NTFS mounting on RH/FC, and I guess you _don't_ need to recompile, kelangan mo lang ang RPM for NTFS support. Heheh hindi kasi ako nag-re-Red Hat eh... kaya assume ko sa previous post ko na pwede mounting sa NTFS sa RH.

By the way, Linux is just the kernel, The gui, application etc etc bundled with the Kernel is a distribution. Eg, redhat,, suse, Slackware, lycoris etc etc



So I think the proper question for you to ask, is what distribution is ideal for you.

yes, you're right, but fastest way is boot ka single mode sa linux, unless naka lock ang single mode mo, as long as nakakaboot ka pa sa system mo, it is recommended na single mo as a recovery method. unless na ndi na mag boot.



here is the grub boot loader single mode



1. pag nag prompt na yung grub boot manager press 'e' as edit

2. then select your kernel 'vmlinuz-xxx.xxx then press 'e' uli

3. at the end of kernel parameter type mo 'single' note: without quote

4. then press 'b' for boot and enter, mag sisingle moda na yan



note again: pag password protected ang grub mo, you have to supply the right password otherwise ndi mag sisingle mode.



Suse Enterprise 8.1 is grub boot loader ko sa 9.1 ko professional lilo gamit ko :-)

Heya,



You'll have to mount your FAT partition.



eg.



# mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows

hello,



i want to set aside a hard disk for linux and linux only. i don't want to mess with my boot disk. takot pa ako. too many files to think of eventhough i have backups. what i want to do is to boot to that particular hard disk via the bios. parang ala knoppix but instead of the cd linux will boot on that drive. paano gawin to? pwede ba sya sa mandrake?



got any ideas?

"For mounting Windows 95/98/ME FAT32 filesystems on Linux, use the command: mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows. The /mnt/windows directory must exist on the system. Unmount by executing: umount /mnt/windows simply. For readers who are using the NTFS filesystem, there's bad news! They have to include the NTFS filesystem support in the configuration file and build a custom Linux kernel. Readers must note: NTFS writing support is DANGEROUS and limited" .--------]this answered my question. tnx



now another question, how could i make a directory in the system? so that i could mount my slave hdd, tnx again

creating directory:

#mkdir dirname



deleting directory requires that the directory has no contents:

#rmdir dirname



deleting directory and everything in it

#rm -rf dirname

  r - recursive

  f - force





@headlessspider

Kaya po yan. First unplug your boot disk, then install linux on your desired hard disk. Then when installation is finished, plugin your old bootdisk. When you want to boot your linux just press ESC key at the bios [this works for most of the motherboards] and select your harddrive.

Post by: GOwin on October 06, 2004, 07:42:23 PM
suggestions please.



situation:

i have a laptop with two network connections. lan1 is my DSL connection, lan2is my office network connection. internet connectivity is also available in lan2, but i prefer not to use their proxy server because of congestion, and use my dsl connection instead. for me, lan2 is just for accessing files and applications in our office network.



what i want to do:

i have been assigned another desktop for use as an experimental server for web apps we deploy/develop/evaluate. i'm thinking of converting it from xp to linux. i have several objectives:



1. the server is primarily for testing and deploying our internal web applications, and therefore, would be running apache and some database (mysql and/or maxdb, or postresql)

2. i want to move my dsl connection to this computer and in turn, i want to run it as my own proxy server to the internet; and

3. configure it as my dialin server so i can work from home (and the benefit of a free internet dialup for me)



i have no problems with #1. my concerns for goals #2 and #3 are:

1. security

before i plug it into the internet, i want to make sure that i am secure from unauthorized access. i would definitely want a hardened server.



2. access

i want to limit access of this proxy server service to our team - a bastard IT workgroup. the *real* IT office has control of the windows-based network services (email, internet proxy, etc). we still need to connect to the main network but i would like my team to have the benefit of a faster internet connection of this proxy.



how do i go about it?



3. etcetera



my background is in systems development and technical training, not systems administration. in general, i'm comfortable with computers running windows but i have been a linux n00b for several years now - it's an off and on thing for me. my laptop still has empty partition from my last linux adventure. (but that's another story)



i tried gentoo, but i got overwhelmed by all of it. (the reviews of gentoo are true enough: absolutely not recommended for n00bs). i would probably try it again at a later time, but i have deadlines to meet right now.



am now looking at "friendlier" distros (MEPIS, YOPER, SME Server .... what else?).  i want a distro that can get me up and running fast, and hardened by default. it should be friendly enough for n00bs, simple enough that I don't have to spend most of my time learning how to administer it (that, not being my job), and highly configurable so i can optimize it for performance when i acquire the skills for it.

I'm new with linux. I have installed mandrake linux 9.0 on my laptop and the installation works perfectly. My laptop has a pre installed win xp home. So after installation of mandrake linux 9.0, it ask if I want to choose linux or windows to boot. So I choose linux. But it goes for a prompt to enter the username and password. So I entered the username and password I added during installation. After that, it has the command prompt. What shall I do in order to go through the x-window? I have tried startx, xinit but it just gives an error message.



Is there also a way that it automatically goes to the x-window when I choose the linux OS to boot?

@mouth,

let me give you a sample about how I did mine.



you only need one primary partition on each drive.

also, you can choose either if you want to install knoppix on your windows drive, or the other drive.



In my case, I installed fc 2 on my other drive. You can install it either on the primary or the extended partition of the other drive.



just make sure that you install it on the partition you alotted. since im sure that the selected partition will be formatted into another filesystem.



hope you get it to work

Doc Spol,
Mayroon po akong Ubuntu 4.10 (3 disks: 1 live, 1 x86 install, 1 for AMD64), bigay ng isang kaibigan sa tpc. Yung livecd ko gamit ay firefox 0.93 , open-office 1.1.2 .
Mas mabilis nga ito kaysa knoppix (well, ung knoppix na na download late last year was still using kernel 2.4 with 2.6 option , hindi iyun yung gaming edition, 256 lang mem ko). Looks better also (nasanay na ko kde kaya siguro familiar na knoppix though slick ang look ng gnome).
tried computer / system config / network setting /creating a  network connection / ....
na recognize naman ang modem ko, pero bigo magconnect. and most of the programs would not run (screenshot, network config, etc) after network configuration ...
siguro naubusan ng memory, baka kailangan bigyan ng hdd space ...

What's the best linus distribution for newbie? Is linux mandrake is the most user friendly? Also one thing is backing me up not to use linux because it does not support write for NTFS file system only read. My back up HD it is in NTFS file system. And that's my problem. Also if you install linux what are the file system that's available? Is the file system for linux is readable for windows?<br />
<br />
Thank you.
Is linux mandrake is the most user friendly?
-- Mandrake are more like M$ Windows so newbie can relate to Linux GUI

NTFS
-- the only way to access NTFS in Read/Write mode in Linux is using Captive NTFS, BUT you need a Windows XP not Windws 2000 and below. Coz it needs the ntfs driver from XP  :-(
Well I use it in my dual boot PC coz my wife uses Windows XP

Anyone here tried Mandrake Linux 10.1 Mini?

It's just a ~350MB installation, maybe it's kinda good for those who want functionality of linux at the same time getting some eyecandy. I haven't tried it though.

Anyways, what's the most minimal installation I can get from Mandrake Linux 10.1? I just want the bare necessities. Although the GUI, Wine and networking is important.

Do not try the Mandrake Linux 10.1 Mini! It will download most of the stuff you will need, if you do not download you would be left with a very bare system. Imagine no gcc to compile anything with.

If you're looking for a single disc distribution, which is aimed at functionality/eye candy, I'd point you to Vector Linux. The VLSOHO 5.0 RC2 can be downloaded from ibiblio.org, just check their forums for the link.

Fedora Core 3 and Mandrake 10.0 have the options to setup a server with samba.  They are not installed by default as far as I know, you have to check the options.

Mandrake 10.0 Mini is a bare linux installation. It's like an OS for embedded systems for a specific purpose (e.g. File server). During its installation, you are asked for what purpose the computer will be. No added fusses.

However, there are other simple linux systems to start with.

Not a problem -- exactly the setup I maintain at our lab (RH9 on the server, win98 on the workstations).  Just make sure you include the samba server package when you install redhat.  I assume this would be included by default if you select the standard server installation (I always select packages manually so I'm not 100% sure.)  Documentation on samba in the web is very good.  You can find a lot of sample smb.conf files to help configure the settings you need.

Hindi tumutuloy sa Windows XP. NTFS partition. I don't know jack why its not booting and tried tinkering with the Grub configuration for various boot combinations and it's still having the same problems.

Uck. Back to Fedora/CentOS land where everything is safe and sound.

If you don't want a bloated linux distro... get FreeBSD instead :).
Seriously if you wanna do hands-on administration without the automatic tools and configurators use Slackware. I used to run version 3.4 on my 486DX system long time ago and (if I could remember very well the basic system fits on 9 floppies) I stripped it down to the basic functions and utilities that I only needed then installed some network services afterwards. Although it has different configuration structure and startup procedures compared to other distros, it's fair to say that it's more manageable when you get the hang of it. Also, it'd better if you just stick to CUI cause anything graphical will just slow your system down.

try 'bunzip2 ./filename'

if that didn't work, read the man pages for bunzip2...

<man page snippet>
.....

bunzip2 (or bzip2 -d) decompresses all specified  files.   Files  which were  not  created by bzip2 will be detected and ignored, and a warning
issued.  bzip2 attempts to guess the filename for the decompressed file
from that of the compressed file as follows:

              filename.bz2    becomes   filename
              filename.bz     becomes   filename
              filename.tbz2   becomes   filename.tar
              filename.tbz    becomes   filename.tar
              anyothername    becomes   anyothername.out

i already tried this procedure but still wont boot to single.. (hanged in "no init find...")

Single User Mode
When things go wrong on your computer, single user mode can help you correct things. Single user mode is like safe mode for you Windows users. Single user mode brings up the basics of the operating system to a point where you can make modification and not start services which might get you in trouble. In single user mode, you can fix/disable services that might be preventing your from booting.

Getting into Single User Mode
To get into single user mode from GRUB, highlight the linux operating system you want to boot. After the line is highlighted, press 'e'. 'e' will get you into the GRUB editor. Next, highlight the line that begins with "kernel" and press 'e' again. 'e' the second time will allow you to edit the "kernel" line. Add the word "single" to the end of the line, "single" will tell the kernel to boot into single user mode. After adding the word "single", press "Enter" and then 'b' to boot the operating system.

That means you don't have gcc installed. If you think you have it then you need to find what directory gcc is installed then add that dir path to your (/etc/profile)... maybe  nakalimutan mo i-check yung gcc sa package options during installation kaya ganyan.

bash# PATH=/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/X11R6:/path/to/your/gcc

bash# set PATH

Check if the Development Tools are installed.  In GNOME, click on Application > System Settings > Add/Remove Application.  It'll then prompts you for a root password, then when the Add/Remove Apps appears, check if the Development Tools are marked, if not then marked it.

You'll be prompted for the DVD, and this will install and configure all the compiler needed for you to compile packages from source tarballs.

Shameless plug: Try Ubuntu, it'll make your life easier. ;-)

@Locohijo:
I have this problem mounting usb flash drive: for USB 2.0 boards, I always have to force linux to use USB 1.1 just so it can detect my flash drive.

I remove this module: ehci_hcd
I ensure these modules are loaded: uhci_hcd, usb_storage, scsi_hcd

But of course when ehci_hcd is removed, it affects other data storage devices in the computer (cdrom and hard disk among other things).

Bug in kernel 2.6?

By the way, I'm now downloading Fedora Core 4. Yehey! Core 2 is now obsolete.

s0lid: use pppoeconfig instead, make sure your kernel supports pppoe or download the pppoedriver

chagascon: using ubuntified vanilla 2.6.11.10, able to use usb 2.0 flash drives and card reader no problem. it may be a problem with that specific ehci chip or the flash drive itself.

nagbrown-out sa amin sorry... i followed some intructions on how to install wine and mount (or should i say mnt) my windows...tapos ok naman i can access my windows files and everything...my problem came when i tried running a windows program in linux. the book used mspaint as a example...
eto un example:

# cp /mnt/win/Program\ Files/Accessories/mspaint /bin/

i used a different directory for mspaint kasi the .exe file in a different windows folder

#wine /bin/mspaint.exe
the book mentioned that a error might appear next

err: module:PE_fixup_imports Module (file) MFC42.dll (which is needed by Z:\a\mspaint.exe) not found

a similar error (instead of MFC42.DLL, MFC42u.DLL ang lumabas) displayed when i tried the command above

sabi ng book to do this

# cp /mnt/win/windows/system/mfc42.dll /usr/share/wine-c/windows/system/

this was the books example pero my mfc42.dll was in system32 not in the system folder and wala akong /usr/share/wine-c/window/system/ so i made directories namely /usr/share/wine-c , /usr/share/wine-c/window/, /usr/share/wine-c/window/system/

pero the same error message appears when i try to run the wine /bin/mspaint.exe command...i also tried changing /usr/share/wine-c/window/system/ to /usr/share/wine-c/window/system32/ pero wala parin...

Hi! tinesting ko the other day yung Knoppix 3.9 and everything was detected and configured just fine. Pero the one thing that wasn't working was my 160gb hard drive.

It was formatted using seagate's disk manager to NTFS that came with ultimate boot cd (http://ubcd.sourceforge.net/). But since my old motherboard (GA-BX2000) doesn't support drives higher than 136gb (i think), it was formatted at 136gb.

whenever I double click the desktop icon for the 160gb drive it says something about an invalid filesystem or soemthing like that. Hindi ko rin ma mount manually. My other NTFS drives are read without problems.

What's casuing this kaya? I'm planning pa naman on ditching XP and migrating to Ubuntu soon. Please help.

Thanks in advance! :)

Most likely, partitions were sort of screwed.

Try mo i fdisk -l or take note of your dmesg after you boot and see if it is detected properly.

Is there by any chance a BIOS update to help you detect the drive properly?

Mga linux gurus may ask lang akong simple, and I can't get it working.

There's a file na gusto kong i-copy sa multiple folders.

so here it goes,example

/var/www/html/filename.txt <--- file i want to copy

/var/www/html/(*folders*)

I want to copy filename.txt inside those folders and here's the command I did.

cp filename.txt /var/www/html/*

and here's what happen...

cp: omitting directory `/var/www/html/folder1`
cp: omitting directory `/var/www/html/folder2`
cp: omitting directory `/var/www/html/folder2`

...care to tell me what's wrong with my syntax?

from http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php...9&highlight=dma (http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=30949&highlight=dma)

do "sudo gedit /etc/hdparm.conf"
then add these at the end:
Code: [Select]
/dev/cdrom {
dma = on
}

Where "/dev/cdrom" you can add your device. Then restart your pc.

Firefox versioning in Ubuntu is somehow flaky, fix/changes made on 1.0.4 were already implemented on the Ubuntu's FF 1.0.2 version however the version didn't changed for some reasons I don't know.

-ubuntu (latest version)
- my modem is supported in this distro, well i think so.. cause when i looked at the device manager, i saw there the chipsets... but the thing is..when i tried to autodetect the modem when i set up my internet connection... an error message saying that the modem was not detected.. any ideas what seems to be the problem???

many internal modems are winmodems. winmodems lack the necessary DSP that constitute a true modem. these modems would use a proprietary driver to offload the DSP functions to the processor/system.

mga Linux Gurus,
tanong ko lang po kung possible itong naiisip ko:
may plano kasi ako gumawa ng Downloading and Web Server on my P3 Machine (linux).

ung Web Server would be running LAMP setup.
ung Downloading Server (ito meron po ba nito) - bali ginagawa lang nya nagdodoload ng mga files na iaadd ko using a control manager via HTTP website. para kahit nasa office ako.. mamomonitor ko ung mga dnaDownload and pwede rin ako magadd ng mga pwede pa idownload (kahit torrents). tapos.. nakaShare na lang ung mga FILES na thru Samba para makuha ng Windows XP machine ko.

bali ung Linux Box ko would be running 24/7. masmakakamura sya ng kuryente since p3 setup lang sya.. and masreliable sya.

anu po magandang distro to implement this? sus, slackware, Debian or anu po?

and if ever.. what scripting knowledge do i have to know para maimplement itong *dream* ko. sa VI lang alam ko magedit. hehe

ayan po plano ko gawin once na nakapagupgrade nko.. siguro mga January pa :D

salamat

Suggest ko gawa ka na lang ng php script for that job. Take a look at PHP ftp functions at PHP.net. It has everything you need for downloading files. Gawa ka na lang ng simpleng webpage where you can enter ftp links of the files you want to download. Problema nga lang regarding PHP, it is not multithreaded kaya you can only make one download at a time. To fix that you may consider using pcntl_fork and exec() functions. Yung exec() functions will enable you to issue terminal commands inside a PHP script, para mag mukang multithreaded dagdagan mo ng "&> /dev/null" para mag run sa background.

Any scripting knowledge will do! Choose between PHP, PERL, python, and BASH scripts)basta research-research lang yan! Good luck! =)

# ssh -l alvin 192.168.1.131 (alvin is the username, the ip is the server)

You will be prompted for a password and please give so. After authentication, walah! You're given a shell to work into!

to copy:
(from server to your PC)
scp alvin@192.168.1.131:/home/alvin/file.txt . (the first parameter is the file to be copied and the dot means copy the file to the current location)

(from your PC to server)
scp file.txt alvin@192.168.1.131:/home/alvin (just like the first command but its vice versa!)

That's all the basic knowledge you need to work with ssh! Happy Tuxing! :-D

I currently using windows and I'm trying to migrate to linux. I was thinking of using Mandrake or Ubuntu. My concern is I have an existing customized program use on my windows computer. The customized program is using ADO with Access Database. It's just a regular application with access database. I would like to inquire if it's possible to make the customized run on linux environment. How do I do this?
maybe you can try open office. it opens up access databases.

open office (http://www.openoffice.org/)

i tried the 2.0 beta and it does open access mdb files and open office can also open word and excel files.

Actually, I don't need to open MS Access. My database format is in mdb format which is the file type that is produce from MS Access. But I'm using the mdb file only to hold the database. The mdb file is access thru the customized program that I have. I could run the program without the MS Access program. It's only the mdb file that is needed for the program.

My question right now is I need to run the cuztomized program on linux.

Did you use the CVS source? If that's the case do:

       #make uninstall

If you used the rpm build it is simple as:

If you're going to make a partition for linux on a Disk that already have files, use PartitionMagic. You need to create an ext3 partition for you linux box and a swap space. A rule of the thumb when creating a swap space is setting its size 2x your system memory. :-D

Post by: pythonista on October 21, 2005, 11:21:03 AM
@Dark_Side

For python you can use: "httplib" or "urllib" modules for that. I've used urllib modules in python to send http_post or http_get to other script. It works like a curl in PHP. Using urllib, you will be able to fetch the generated HTML code from a script that you've called.

For PERL, I don't have first hand experience on parsing HTML data since I only use it for building SOAP clients.

If the website requires authentication. You have to consult the webmaster on how to be authenticated and what script that you need to put username/password into. Sir Orly_Andico's PERL code is one good example on how to login on a website. You can see it somewhere here in the forums. Just type on the search PPCnet "perpetual babe" and open the "Get Pictures from Perpetual Babe Thread".

If you need more help. Join pythonista mailgroups listed in "www.python.org" :-D

Post by: pythonista on October 21, 2005, 11:31:22 AM
Nga pala pahabol lang:

Once you've fetched the HTML code to a variable. You can use regular expression to search through the HTML code for matching strings. In python you have to use "re" module "regex" is still available but it's obsolete though. In PERL meron din regex pero I don't know much about it.

THEN ADD UR VIRTUAL HOST.

# Use name-based virtual hosting.

# VirtualHost example:
# Almost any Apache directive may go into a VirtualHost container.
# The first VirtualHost section is used for requests without a known

Tnx..
Title: FREE Linux Tutorial.
Post by: BOFH on October 21, 2005, 02:37:22 PM
yes, same IP. kaya nga virtualhosting hehe.  
when you open www.frends.com on your web browser, DNS will resolve it to 203.216.103.50 and apache httpd will be the one to determine which files it will serve.

here's a tip when managing a lot of vhosts:
create a directory, like ./vhosts and call it from your apache config
put your virtualhosts into a separate file. call it like www.frends.com, www.birthday.org, and so on.
it will be a lot easier to edit the virtualhost directives compared to when your virtualhosts are consolidated in one file.

/bin : system-wide binaries essential to the running of the system
/boot : often separated from the root filesystem (ie on another partition) and contains the actual kernel as well as bootloader config files
/dev : a directory full of devices, populated either by the "devfs" filesystem, or more recently "udev". Really old systems had to have this directory filled with device nodes manually.
/etc : contains configuration files for the system, as well as stuff which doesn't fit into any other directory
/home : contains users' home directories
/lib : system-wide libraries essential to the running of the system
/lost + found : the directory to find things after your drive has been fscked (fsck = file system check)
/media : removable drives (such as CDs, DVDs, floppies) should be mounted to a sub-directory of this dir
/mnt : static filesystems (such as windows drives, etc) should be mounted to a sub-directory of this dir
/opt : used for add-on apps and some other software packages
/proc : a virtual filesystem which contains information about your system
/root : the root user's home directory
/sbin : system binaries, where things that are essential to system maintenance but not to normal users go
/sys : another virtual filesystem, which gives information on the running kernel, and can be used to pass options to the kernel during operation
/tmp : system-wide temporary files
/usr : this directory normally contains a whole new filesystem heirarchy, with its own bin, include, lib, and sbin subdirectories. This is where most installed software should put its binaries and libraries, as well as default option files (normally in /usr/share/<appname>). The /usr directory helps to keep files essential to the running of the system/OS separate from user-installed applications.
/var : contains variable data files such as mailboxes, news directories, spooling files, and logs.

It's good to install Windows XP first before any Linux distros. If you also have partition magic handy, you can use that to create ready made ext3 (or reiserfs) and a swap partition that the Ubuntu installer can use.

You can configure the bootloader to have Windows selected at default. Since Ubuntu use GRUB edit the /boot/grub/menu.lst and change the "default" parameter. :-)

I haven't encountered that kind of problem. Mas maganda sana kung nagdump  ng error log during bootup para malaman natin. Kung nakakapagboot ka pa naman with your method of using the GRUB console, could you check the permissions of your /dev/null folder if its at read-write mode baka lang kasi read-only just like what happened here in office. Kung ganun nga chmod it to '666'.

You can also check kung nagkaroon ng changes sa grub.conf causing that problem.

Ok here's a rough steps to get you started with:

1. Pop in your linux LiveCD.
2. Once you have your shell prompt. Check if the LiveCD has mounted your linux partition in your Hard Disk. You can do that by "mount" command. It will give you a list of partitions that are mounted and where they can be accessed.
3. Assuming that the LiveCD mounted your partition to "/mnt/hda1" do:
        $ cd /mnt/hda1
        $ cd dev
        $ sudo chmod 666 null
4. Then reboot without the LiveCD.

You can also see you grub.conf by:
$ cd /mnt/hda1/boot/grub
$ emacs grub.conf
and make any necessary changes if you got problems in your bootloader.

i hope this helps ubuntu users who are planning to use XFS with GRUB.

i got this from a source @ distrowatch.com

Quote
So let it be stated for the record: if you want to use XFS, you should install GRUB to a separate /boot partition formatted with a different file system (ext3 will work fine). How large should a /boot partition be? Surprisingly, bigger than I expected. I checked how much space is being used in my /boot directory and have discovered it's hefty 18MB. Your mileage may vary. On my Dapper installation there are two kernels and two bloated initrd files (probably because I updated the kernel once and didn't delete the old files). Anyway, I would guess that 30MB would be a safe size for a /boot partition. If you keep installing kernels, be sure you clean out the cruft, otherwise your /boot partition will fill to the bursting point. As it is, too many sedentary geeks are plagued with bulging waistlines - last thing we need are bulging /boot partitions as well.

Mail logs are usually saved on "mbox" file on your home folder. Kung gusto mong idownload yung logs you have a lot of options:

1. Use a windows SSH & SCP Client to download the file (Putty).
2. Via FTP if the linux box have ftp server setup
3. Symlink the mbox file on the htdocs folder if you have apache webserver installed on the linux box. Then download it via browser.

   I followed your 1st suggestion and I was able to download the logs using a windows SSH client.

I don't know much about Squid pero kita sa error logs mo na walang permission yung squid user sa /usr/local/squid/var/cache. Try mo "ls -al" yung directory to see who own's it. If you find that squid user don't have permissions on the said directory then make adjustments by adding the squid user on the group that owns the directory.

if you really need to use the source, try to package the thing:

@ noobinator

You need to install the drivers if you need to. But most of the time it's covered by the installation.

@ kenshin

I too experienced those. Some distros have different installation engines that don't work on certain hardware configuration. Like what I experienced at Redhat 8.0 on ECS K7VMM which is using anaconda engine. If graphical installers don't work, try the text mode installations. It's more compatible than graphical installations (from what I've experienced).

guys pwede bang separate drives ang winxp and ubuntu?, what I want is on my second drive i already have a 40 gig partition that I used for windows vista pero ifoformat ko na sya and then replace it with ubuntu, now can i do that?

second mababasa ba ng ubuntu yung drive ko na isa na may mga media files na ntfs ang partition?

do I have to partiton my 40 gig partition na para sa swap files?

anong ok na file extension to use

its been awhile since i installed linux eh.

btw ito ang disk chart ko:
250 gb sata drive 2 partitons into two: 30 gb for win xp and 200 gb for my files (i don't want to tpuch this sana) primary channel

120 gb pata drive: 2 partitons: 40 gb for win vista (which i like to use for ubuntu) 70 gb for downloaded softwares

I suggest that you use your 40gb in which your Windows Vista is residing. It's more than enough for linux. Take a piece of space from your 40gb for your swap partition (Rule of the thumb, swap size is 2x of your RAM).

Linux will be able to access all your files on your NTFS drives but don't expect to have write access on it since NTFS kernel modules is not perfect yet.
Title: Re: FREE Linux Tutorial.
Post by: vanmidy on August 04, 2006, 01:37:15 PM
i can't write on ntfs, i see.

but can i copy files from linux to windows (using windows xp)?

how about partitioning my 40 gig into two, 30 / 10gig (gagawin kong fat32 then I will place my temp downloaded files here) then the contents of the 10 gb will be transferred either sa 70 gb partition or doon sa 200 gb pwede ba yun po?
Title: Re: FREE Linux Tutorial.
Post by: pythonista on August 04, 2006, 02:04:17 PM
Yup actually yun ginagawa ko. I store my files onto a FAT32 partition so that windows can easily access it. You also have an option to use "explore2fs" to access ext3 partition in windows. But in my own experience mabagal to.

sir may tanong po ako sa installation ng Fedora core 5.

i have 2 sata drives, seagate and samsung. Windows XP is installed in my seagate and i am installing fedora to my samsung.

im using the x86-64 dvd version installer because my processor is athlon x2 4200.

i successfully installed fedora but after the first reboot it shows an error "missing operating system". i don't know what's the reason for that error because im a total newbie in linux and im just starting to learn it. i already read all the installation instructions but i can't find a link for that error.

everytime i reboot im getting the "missing operating system" error and cannot boot to XP normally. so what i did is i go to quick boot and choose my seagate hd to boot in xp.

i installed the bootloader GRUB to /dev/sda MBR and i set the default boot to fedora and add Winxp for the other boot option. i also tried modifying GRUB and installed it to /dev/sdb and it also shows the same error.



help po thnx hehe

kapag nakatanggal yung 2nd hdd hinde ako makapagboot sa 1st hdd papuntang xp. na install yata yung grub sa mbr ng 1st at 2nd hdd kaya ganun. bali ang way lang para makaboot ako sa xp e dadaan muna ng grub na galing sa 2nd hdd.

eto po tanong ko, pano pag irereformat ko na yung 2nd hdd ko e pano po ako makakapag boot sa 1st hdd ng inde nakakabit ung isang pang hdd. meron bang way para hinde na magload yung grub sa 1st hdd tuwing boot up ko?

Post by: pythonista on October 06, 2006, 09:10:47 AM
Edit first your grub.conf by removing or commenting out the boot entry of the OS that you're going to remove physically. Let's take for example my configuration:

timeout 15
color cyan/blue white/blue
foreground ffffff
background 0639a1

gfxmenu /boot/grub/message

title MEPIS at hdb1, kernel 2.6.15-1-586tsc
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.15-1-586tsc root=/dev/hdb1 nomce quiet vga=791

title Windows at hda1
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

title MEMTEST
kernel /boot/memtest86.bin

My grub is written on the MBR of hda1. If I remove my second hard disk without commenting out the MEPIS hdb1 entry mageerror talaga yung grub ("Disk not found error"). Before removing the second disk, comment mo yung entry like this:

timeout 15
color cyan/blue white/blue
foreground ffffff
background 0639a1

gfxmenu /boot/grub/message

#title MEPIS at hdb1, kernel 2.6.15-1-586tsc
#kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.15-1-586tsc root=/dev/hdb1 nomce quiet vga=791

title Windows at hda1
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

title MEMTEST
kernel /boot/memtest86.bin

And now pwede mo na tanggalin yung hdb1 mo without affecting your bootloader. If you want to completely remove the bootloader in your mbr. You can use the windows xp repair console and type the command "fixmbr".

Noobie question: How do you remove a linux partition? I have a linux partition on my laptop and I want to remove it and recover the space for use in Windows XP. Can I use a bootdisk and simply fdisk or P'Magic the partition? Reluctant ako galawin kasi this laptop is my work PC. Also paano yung Grub loader? How do I remove all references to linux? Para automatic na siya sa windows agad.

fdisk /mbr http://support.microsoft.com/kb/69013


What I do is use fdisk /mbr to remove the Linux loader and partition magic to remove the linux partition.

Or you can use the fixboot command:  http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/bootcons_fixboot.mspx?mfr=true

But you have to install the recovery console:  http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/recovery_console_overview.mspx?mfr=true

Thanks Doc. Already done it 2 days ago. Took awhile to get Windows to boot though, since nag-error 17 yung GRUB boot loader. Luckily Google works. Had to boot the Windows CD and do a fixboot.

@solid,

i just downloaded it from the DOST website. 

encountered problems...

installation finished without any glitch.  pero nung pag-boot ko, naka-default siya sa 1024x768 res.  so i tried to reconfigure the res to 800x600 (yun lang kasi kaya nung old dell laptop).  bayanihan crashed, and tried to reboot, first with the "recover" option (no go) so tried to reboot using the usual boot.  pero hanggang "loading" lang talaga.  will try to re-install again.

OT:  i can burn you a copy and give it to you sa dec 10 EB, if you want.  pero beta 2 pa rin lang yun, hindi pa stable release...

I'm downloading LinuxMint (http://distrowatch.com/?newsid=03851#0) right now and will install it in my computer at home.

Quote
Linux Mint is an Ubuntu-based distribution whose goal is to provide a more complete out-of-the-box experience by including browser plugins, media codecs, support for DVD playback, Java, and other components. Linux Mint 2.0, code name “Barbara”, was released yesterday: “This release is based on Ubuntu 6.10 and uses the Ubuntu installer. The desktop is GNOME 2.16.1 and the kernel is 2.6.17. Barbara comes with the following plugins: Macromedia Flash 9 beta, Sun Java 1.5 Update 9, RealPlayer 10. Support for MP3, Windows and various codecs, encrypted DVDs is installed by default. Barbara comes with Amarok 1.4.4 instead of Rhythmbox. The default artwork is a blue version of the ‘Human’ theme.”

LinuxMint2.0 is based on the latest Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft distro.

windows and linux are in in the same hard disk (test hard disk pa lang).
now, I'm having problem when adding my data hard disk. Di ba sa windows, pag bagong kabit yung HDD mo, kita na agad sa explorer. Sa linux, di ako marunong wehehe. Pano ba yun?

i'm pretty sure na kita ni linux yung drive kasi nung tinignan ko sa gpartition, 2 hard disk na yung nakita nya. di ko lang ma-mount ng maayos. patulong naman.

the partition will be visible sa /mnt/win

ei, this is my question. matagal ng akong linux user pero til now i dont know how to remove the lilo (linux loader) from the mbr. i quit linux already then thats my problem to remove the lilo.

step 1: create a backup of your mbr (in case of a disaster, 99% at a time)
dd if=/dev/hda of=MyMBR.img bs=446 count=1

step 2: erase your mbr
dd if=/dev/null of=/dev/hda bs=446 count=1

step 3: reboot and cross your fingers.

Incase of a disaster, boot from a live cd, backup your data, or
restore your mbr and run dos fdisk /mbr

dd if=MyMBR.img of=/dev/hda bs=446 count=1

To use rescue mode, use a live-CD/Rescue-CD
then from the command prompt,

fdisk -l (to list your linux partition, hda2 is an example)
mount /dev/hda2 /mnt
chroot /mnt
from there, perform the dd operations to restore your MBR, or backup your data.

If your partition table had been altered, use gpart, http://www.stud.uni-hannover.de/user/76201/gpart/

formating mbr under linux is risky, better use fdisk /mbr from dos,
but hey! at least you know how to format your mbr under linux.

You can use dosbox, by simply creating a dosbox.cfg in your home directory, and add this command in the last line.

mount d /mnt/your-mounted-samba-dir/

you can mount a samba directory by

mount -t smbfs //servername/sharename /mountdirectory -o username=mywindowsusername,password=mywindowspassword

hope this helps.

In ubuntu i install dosbox using synaptic and follow the instruction in the "ReadMe.txt" file that came along with the CVS build. is anyone knows how to make it work? what must i download? what will i do?

if you're using version 0.2.0 (from SVN), go to Beryl Settings Manager, and in the Visual Effects category, enable the "3D Effects" plugin. in older versions, the plugins are organized a bit differently, but the 3D Effects plugin should be in there somewhere

undecided,
thanks! i have read that before, it only install the official release of DOSBox. This release have no support for printing. what i need is to make the CVS build work. here is what i do. Please tell me what is wrong.
Install Dosbox using Synaptic
Download DOSBox CVS build for Linux that came from this site: http://ykhwong.x-y.net/cvs/frame.html (http://ykhwong.x-y.net/cvs/frame.html) and save to desktop. 
Extracted files to desktop
Open a terminal and copy these two files to /usr/local/lib:
sudo cp libSDL-1.2.so.0.11.1 /usr/local/lib
sudo cp dosbox /usr/local/lib

Link them to use OpenhlHQ:
sudo ln -s /usr/local/lib/libSDL-1.2.so.11.1 /usr/local/lib/libSDL.so
sudo ln -s /usr/locallib/libSDL-1.2.so.0.11.1 /usr/local/lib/libSDL-1.2.so.0
Copy dosbox.conf to my home folder
cp dosbox.conf /home/kenzhin
Test if it works:
Open dosbox:
dosbox
z:\>dir >prn
this only display the directory z:

hello linux gurus,

i'm a newbie trying this sabayon 3.26 distro 32 bit version kde. i like it a lot for the eye candy out-of-the-box experience and hopefully will be using it over xp. here's my test setup.

-sabayon on sdb1 which is a pata hdd formated to xt3
-data files on sda1 which is a sata hdd formatted to ntfs
-windows xp on a sperate/unplugged hdd.

sda1 is multi partitioned ntfs and sabayon automounts it when i double click on them.

but when i do a file open within an application, those mounted ntfs doesnt show up. for example, i want to import my firefox bookmark.html which is located in sda1. under Places, only my usr, desktop and file system are listed.

so what should i do so that mounted ntfs partition shows up under Places?

thanks,
bk

btw, ive spent 2 nites figuring out why my monitor would go out of range when i was testing the sabayon live cd as well as trying to install nvidia drviers in ubuntu to get beryl working. i tried editing the xorg.conf using specs from the manufacturer as well as search for this problem on most forums. the solution for me?
"res=1680x1050_60"
yay  :silly:

==solved==
nm, editing fstab to mount the ntfs worked. lol.

actually depende na sa setup mo yung ibang mount points. ang pinaka-importante yung /boot at swap.

Another linux newbie chiming in.

I've got a 6 month old installation of openSUSE 10.2 x86.
Everything was going real smooth.  Unfortunately, the past two months, a nasty problem started to occur.

If I leave my system running idle for like...an hour or two, the whole thing will just freeze up.  Pati yung mouse ayaw gumalaw.  The only thing I could do is to hit the reset button.

I don't know what caused this.  Di kaya one of the system updates?

Anyway, any tips on how to start diagnosing this problem?  Assuming i've just did a h/w reset after the system hangs, what should I check first after I finish booting up?

Thanks.

Probably a bad disc or a bad copy. Try downloading and/or burning again. You can also try ordering a copy from Canonical. Free naman yun.

Yung CD na un eh bigay sa akin ng kaibigan ko at un ung ubuntu free cd. To further isolate I'll backup all my files and just repartion my HD and see what will happen.

Oo nga pala I also downloaded the latest version of ubuntu ok lang ba ung ubuntu 7.04 alternate?

I'd say if you want bleeding edge go for feisty fawn (7.04). If you want better support use Dapper (6.06) since it has LTS (long time support). The Dapper repository gets updated often than other versions.

Post by: Speedup on July 02, 2007, 10:30:02 AM
@pythonista
I like to try the 7.04 I like fancy things hehehe, at gs2 kong masabi na I've found something more than Microsoft can offer. Ang downside nga lang nito eh kailangan kong start from scratch kc wala akong alam sa linux so kailangan kong mag aral kailangan ko pa rin ng windows kc ung mga games na gs2 ko eh di ko sure kung may linux version ung mga un. Pero the rest ay sa linux ko na gagawin.

Another question, do I need to install the drivers for Nvidia, kc sa website ng Nvidia eh mga drivers pa or automatic na recognize ng linux ung vc ko.

If I were you I'll leave it alone. If you remove it you won't be able to boot to your kernel. If you really don't like how it looks, edit your /boot/grub/menu.lst file and reduce the timeout value.

Title: Re: FREE Linux Tutorial.
Post by: lahar on September 01, 2007, 09:06:19 AM
Because you don't have the proper codec, thats like trying to play a Divx file w/o the Divx codec. Plus the Windows Media codec is proprietary and not open source w/c runs counter to the Linux ethos and so they do not include it in the original installation. You'll have to download and install it separately.
Title: Re: FREE Linux Tutorial.
Post by: Sephiroth on September 01, 2007, 10:07:49 PM
I see. The .wmv file was selectable at the filter so I thought Kaffeine can play those types effectively.

Put this in your crontab (Assuming that your htdocs folder is /var/www/html)

Execute this every 12:01am. I leave the cron scheduling up to you.

@to anyone

got another problem...


When I installed Fedora Core 8, I set the partition to use up only 30GB (of a 160GB HDD) for the reason that I wanted to avoid the long wait for the entire 160GB to be formatted by Linux.  Now that I'm fast running out of disk space, I would like to expand the partition to use the rest of the remaining disk space. 

Problem is, gparted doesn't support LVM and so far all I've found out is that it's possible to resize partitions WITHIN the volume but it's impossible to resize the VOLUME itself.

Any ideas on how to solve this without resorting to a reformat and reinstall?

They even got S.T.A.L.K.E.R work on it.

sorry wala ako background sa linux, but i need a finger daemon it seems.

built in na ba yan? o package na kailangan pa idownload?

if builtin, how do i use it?

Finger is some kind of a primitive presence checker. It checks who's currently logged in and their details. Sa Ubuntu Desktop built-in na yan sa while Server editions doesn't. To install:

Debian/Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install fingerd
Redhat/Fedora: yum install fingerd (Just check the exact rpm package for this)

Finger output is something like this:
alvin@alvin-desktop:~$ finger
Login     Name            Tty      Idle  Login Time   Office     Office Phone

All hardware seems to be working, except that I cannot use my bluetooth headset with Ubuntu's bluetooth service. It's pairing alright, but no out-of-the-box applications seem to support A2DP to stream audio to my bluetooth headset. And I thought PulseAudio was a solution to this but I haven't RTFM. The bluetooth headset in question is a Dell BH200. But looking at google for a possible soIution, have yet to try this:

http://fosswire.com/2008/01/11/a2dp-stereo-linux/

In Vista, the audio subsystem could switch outputs automatically with a push of a button on the headset. However, the solutions provided by the link above involves the use of scripts. Initially, it looks cumbersome but i will nonetheless try to work it out. Why, developers should start integrating A2DP service to the Sounds control panel.

And yes, I haven't (natively) booted Windows for the longest time and I'm happy that wine can run SimCity 4 with only a mouse click. The only thing that keeps me to booting Windows is that I am currently developing a project which involves C# and the use of a serial port, and the Outlook+Google(mail and calendar) combo. And no, MonoDevelop isn't up to Microsoft Visual Studio (express editions) usefulness and friendlyness to beginners.

its Software Freedom Day today...

I've just attended an seminar in MSU-IIT today and I learned a lot of good things about Linux and the world of Open Source... since I'm totally new to world of Linux

I'm interested about learning the Ubuntu OS.. now where should i choose..? Kubuntu (KDE) or Ubuntu (GNOME)...?

Title: Re: FREE Linux Tutorial.
Post by: Sephiroth on September 20, 2008, 04:45:58 PM
I chose Kubuntu becaue I felt it looks more neat and more user friendly than Ubuntu. I used Ubuntu 7.10/Xubuntu 7.10 then upgraded to Kubuntu 8.04. GNOME apps work in KDE and vice versa (thanks to Lahar for clarifying this way back). It's just some (as in very few) applications look better in one environment, but all are functional.

BTW, a few tips:

1. Try your hardware first if everything works by booting into a Live CD or installing Ubuntu in Windows through Wubi (included in the CD)

2. When installing I found it better to have a separate partition for the /home, so that if ever you want to reformat your installation, you only need to do it on the /. Almost all setting and documents will be saved.
Title: Re: FREE Linux Tutorial.
Post by: boom_box on September 20, 2008, 05:28:29 PM
@Sephiroth

thanks for the tip...

the only problem is that I do have only one Hardisk with 2 partitions.. 50 GB XP OS and 250 GB Storage...

another question.. is Kubuntu bundled in the Free CD Ubuntu..?

anyway I'm still waiting for the free copy of ubuntu.. 6-10 weeks of waiting time.. =(
downloading it is a good idea.. but I dont have DSL connection.. =(

Post by: Sephiroth on September 20, 2008, 05:39:58 PM
You either get Ubuntu or Kubuntu.

Order your Kubuntu CD too!
https://shipit.kubuntu.org/

I think it would be wise to back up your valuable data first before installing Ubuntu. Or you can do it safely with Wubi.

Post by: boom_box on September 20, 2008, 06:03:46 PM

i guess I'll just buy separate HDD.. 160 GB perhaps... divided with 2 partitions.. 1 for Vista and 1 for Kubuntu...

You can order again. ^_^

Take a look at this partitioning guide:

Review (http://www.itlure.com/2009/08/distro-hoppin-linux-mint-7-kde-edition.html)

I have been using Linux Mint 7 (the GNOME edition) and I can say that Mint is the MOST n00b friendly Linux distro I have tried. It's fast, stable, full of features and requires minimal tinkering (which is a thumbs down for some :lol:).
I'm downloading LM 7 KDE and install it in another drive.

I usually run the "script" command prior to running shell scripts to log all terminal activity in a "typescript" file.  After the shell script has completed I just type "exit" to stop the logging activity.

My question is how do I call "script" from within a bash script and have it terminate without terminating the bash script itself?  Kinda like an auto logging feature.

Currently, if I simply put "script" at the start of the bash script, succeeding script commands won't execute anymore.  I'll need to type "exit" for the rest of the script to proceed.

Thanks in advance.

Help sephi, i do recall you buying a laptop recently, and mentioning about installing linux unto it.

Is it linux mint by any chance? Is it straightforward to install in a lappy (dual boot) like in a normal rig or have you encountered a few issues?

Older hardware should work better in linux. Newer ones *might* need some tinkering (not most of the time though). In my own experience, I just had to install a PPA kernel to get my Suspend/Hibernate to work. You can try it out first by booting to liveCD.

Hi, Altec! I haven't bought a laptop because The product whose specs I want comes with Vista. And of course I don't want to pay for software I won't use. I'm still in the process of contacting the manufacturer (HP) to ask if I can get rebate.

Linux Mint is easy to install and almost nothing to do after installation (it comes Firefox for web browsing and with Pidgin IM so your dad can communicate with his friends at YM, if he wishes).

What I suggest is that you burn it in a CD or USB drive, boot from it and see if there's any problems. Or you can use Virtual Box to test the OS by installing it without partitioning. Afterwards if all is well, you can wipe out Windows.

Hope that helps!

BTW, even some recent hardware runs fine with Linux. HP does a fine job in providing excellent Linux drivers for its printers and nVidia as well for its video cards.

Fixing fsck:
- Open terminal
- Add arand's PPA repository which fixes the mount_all bug: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:arand/unstable
- sudo apt-get update
- run update manager and update your whole system

Fixing slow boot-to-desktop problem:
- Go to BIOS
- Disable Floppy Disk Drives

That's weird, installing grub should auto-detect the available kernels. If that's the case, why don't you try running update-grub2 before restarting.

There's also a possibility that grub was installed in a different harddisk, not replacing the old ones.

how's the graphics performance for the latest ATI cards? thinking of linux-ing my laptop (mobility radeon 5470), but i read that drivers for the radeon cards suck (through no fault of FOSS i must say)...

Older radeons 8xxx,9xxx are well supported by the opensource drivers. Newer cards are less well supported by the opensource drivers. However Catalyst supports newer cards, with functional 3D acceleration. However, the Catalyst drivers are a bit finicky, they often lag behind Xorg releases for months. I hear Catalyst works on Ubuntu 10.04 for now, I don't know if they're compatible with Xorg in Ubuntu 10.10.
Title: Re: FREE Linux Tutorial.
Post by: borgy_t on July 27, 2010, 07:22:54 PM
so i guess the 5xxx series aren't as well supported as of now... driver performance compared to windows, how good (or bad) is it? and aside from fglrx (the catalyst for linux), there's also radeonhd? dapat ata nag-nvidia na lang ako hahaha

i guess i would just like my hardware to be performing the best it can regardless of what OS it runs in, also in case i would need the performance boost. pero onga, mukhang hanggang VESA lang ma-eexpect ko ngayon. might be wise to wait.

aside from fglrx, there's radeonhd and a radeon package too. ugh confusing.

i wish these companies provided better support for the linux community.

Post by: r8dhex on July 27, 2010, 09:26:17 PM
Well, since you already have the laptop, You should try the livecd first to see if the oss drivers support your GPU. Can't install proprietary drivers in the livecd environment though, since you'd need to reboot, and when you do, it's back to square one.

You'd need to install ubuntu dual-boot to try the Catalyst drivers. If it works then all is good, if not, then  wait for the next Catalyst release to try again :)

BTW, ATI actually supports the opensource drivers indirectly by providing docs and whatnot. Nvidia on the other hand doesn't support the opensource developers in any way, they only provide a binary blob, devs have to reverse engineer to be able to write the opensource drivers.

In the ideal world, ATI's drivers would be better than nvidia's. But for now, nvidia driver quality is better overall.

Just upgraded to Maverick Meerkat (Ubuntu 10.10)

(http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4001/5075356641_ca766a16e1_b.jpg)

The release doesn't drastically make any desktop changes from Lucid except for the emphasis on the Cloud service which I have yet to try, I'm liking default desktop font though.

EDIT: I can see "Sync to Ubuntu One" everywhere. It seems they integrated their cloud service on gnome itself. Awesome.

I recommend that you wait it out for a few weeks before you upgrade your work machine. I did a hot upgrade, after a reboot, X won't start. There's a very famous bug in ubuntu forums closely related to guys who did an upgrade. Apparently, 10.10 doesn't fallback to VESA when there's no video driver module. I'm using VESA on Intel 4500MHD since 10.04 and I was hit by the bug. I managed to fix it by following the bug tracker suggestions here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-video-intel/+bug/633593

For Nvidia Based Video Cards read: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nvidia-graphics-drivers-96/+bug/616394

The fix should be released soon.

baktol,

In a word, great!!!

It requires less installation work than Mint (which is already a goodie-filled distro). Despite the added features, it's sill snappy and responsive. I welcome the added pre-installed (functional) eye candy like Docky and Conky. I love Mint, but Pinguy is definitely better.

There are some cons, though which I shall detail in my upcoming review.

yup, installed the driver via Jockey. video playback is sometimes so-so, there are some flashing / flickering (tearing?) very noticeable on fast scenes and gun fight scenes. also, i don't know if it's my browser or not, but playing youtube video is not that smooth as that of windows, a bit laggy and browsing / cuing the video becomes very slow. hope that this could be improved. i am more inclined on sticking with Ubuntu for a while. =]

EDIT:
after much googling and trying the different solutions found on the net, i finally found one solution that worked for me.

I did the following changes...
In VLC:
-I changed the output mode to X11 video output instead of the "default" settings
-changed the XVideo Adaptor number from -1 to 1

In CompizConfig:
-go to General Options ->Display Settings and put a tick / check mark on the Sync to VBlank option.

In Catalyst:
-under More Settings change the Wait for Vertical Refresh from OFF to ALWAYS ON

I also read that you can also edit the XVideo Adaptor in your X config for overall display improvement (for games), but i have yet to try it.

i imagine it would be hard for them to maintain two separate versions (rolling and i imagine an LTS?), with their manpower.

+1 on LTS being stable, traditional-style released milestones. i also wonder how appropriate rolling releases are for corporate environments.

as an aside, has anyone used Granola? http://grano.la/software/ (http://grano.la/software/)

Post by: pythonista on January 29, 2011, 10:58:32 AM
Arch Linux user here. Installation is not as painless as ubuntu. You will only be given a core install: kernel + shell + coreutils then you will have to build your system from ground up. I do recommend you to have an extra computer that has the beginner's guide open: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Beginners'_Guide and a broadband internet since you will be doing "pacman -S <package name>" a lot during installation. You will be also editing a lot of config files. All in all, I might take you a half day to get a usable system with WM.

Ubuntu started to feel bloated for me when I upgraded to 10.10. My laptop ran ubuntu for almost two years: 9.04->9.10->10.04->10.10 but the hardware support wasn't perfect still. This pushed me to go back to minimalism and try rolling release distros. I was supposed to go back to Slackware but tried Archlinux out of curiosity. Building your system from scratch and having a total control of everything is quite a joy. You'll get a bleeding edge machine whenever you want to with "pacman -Syu". All the features of my laptop are working well thanks to rolling releases. My kernel as of the moment is dated "Jan 24, 2011".

I'm pretty sure you'll be bit by the "pacman -Syu" sickness once you get a hang of it. I myself run it several times a day out of whim. =)

Post by: borgy_t on January 30, 2011, 02:24:01 PM
well, around 2 weeks ago i tried out Arch Linux by installing it inside Virtualbox. unfortunately my experience wasn't 100% all good.

i got around to installing and setting up without a hitch until i had to install KDE and start it up at boot. configured it but after i login through KDM i was stuck in a loop, logging in forever (had to use failsafe mode to login successfully). furthermore, shutting down using the GUI was broken - had to go to a terminal and issue the commands as root. (i have setup sudo already, so not sure what was going on there). also i realized setting up KDE for me was too much of a chore.

Arch isn't at fault here however. i only used 3 nights to set up my installation, clearly it isn't enough. Also it seems like it's KDE that is causing the problem (i'm having another problem with Kubuntu 10.10 on VBox too). Clearly i have to invest more time in this.

one concern i have with rolling releases pertains to having a proprietary graphics card driver. kernel and fglrx versions have to be in sync to have a working system, and these doesn't happen, resulting in a broken system until fglrx (usually) releases a driver compatible with whatever kernel.

if i can be enlightened on my concerns and problems i have encountered, please do so. i think Arch is wonderful once you get the hang of it - i just haven't invested enough time and effort on it.


currently im trying Pardus 2011. Looks good except it seems a bit buggy and the selection of packages is not as big as ubuntu/arch.

adizero, if the error message involves permissions, you'll have to prepend the mv command with sudo.  /var is owned by root and it won't work unless you have the proper root privilege to do so.  so, either log in as root or sudo your way to an elevated privilege.

teka why are you resorting to the CLI when doing it via GUI is easier?  if you are using the Gnome desktop version 2.30 or better, open nautilus with elevated privileges

sudo nautilus

then press F3 (or click View > Extra Pane) to split the nautilus screen.  Now it's all just a matter of changing the location of each pane and do a drag-and-drop.

and one more thing, hindi kaya improper yung pag-gamit mo ng pipe?  you're piping the output of the find command as standard input to the mv command.  the way i understand it, the mv command requires a source and destination as parameters, and not as standard input.  yung mv command mo only has one parameter (the destination directory from what i surmize) pero saan yung source directory mo?

text base lang ung server namin pre eh.      find / - user  student  |mv /var/student      yung out put sana ng find / -user student   >  ang automatic mamove sa folder /var/student.    we need this sana dahil we have 100 k users and we cant do it one by one.   kya ok sana kung after ma find  all fiules owned by student  mapupunta sya sa /var/student

ah ok i get it.  well, try mo itong suggestion.  instead of using a pipe, gamiting mo ang command substitution.  basically you surround the first command with backquotes and use it as your first parameter in the mv command:

mv `find / - user  student` /var/student

bale ang mangyayari ay the output of the backquoted `find...` command will now serve as your mv command's first n parameter(s). /var/student is the last parameter which, according to the man page for the mv command serves as the destination directory.

pero bago mo gawin yung above changes mag-test ka muna.  make sure that the output of the find command is what you expect.

here's an example:

administrator@asus-a8jn ~ $ ls -l

You need to use the -exec option in find or xargs. Read about it here -- http://www.softpanorama.org/Tools/Find/using_exec_option_and_xargs_in_find.shtml

current hot topic in the desktop linux world now is this ~200 line patch to the kernel that improves desktop interactivity.
http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=linux_2637_video&num=1 (http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=linux_2637_video&num=1)

for those who do not want to compile the kernel, there is a userspace alternative that achieves a similar effect.
http://www.webupd8.org/2010/11/alternative-to-200-lines-kernel-patch.html (http://www.webupd8.org/2010/11/alternative-to-200-lines-kernel-patch.html)

tested the 2nd method on Mint 10, flash playback and some javascript animations are much smoother. i think it did make my cpu warmer though, will test it out more.

Kernel 2.6.38 just merged this patch already.

http://kernelnewbies.org/Linux_2_6_38#head-59575a6aeafa38490226a560ee02de89829a5b20

Waiting for archlinux to do a rolling release for this. :)
