  1. Adding the comma fixed the problem. Here is my fstab as it now stands: # This file is edited by fstab-sync - see 'man fstab-sync' for details /dev/hda1 / ext2 umask=0022,nls=iso8859-1,ro 1 1 /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom auto umask=0022,user,iocharset=iso8859-1,sync,codepage=850,noauto,ro,exec,users 0 0 /dev/hdb1 /mnt/windows ntfs umask=0,ro,users,auto 0 0 none /proc proc defaults 0 0 /dev/hda6 /usr reiserfs notail 1 2 /dev/hda5 swap swap defaults 0 0 /dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom1 auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,utf8,codepage=850,iocharset=iso8859-1,managed 0 0 /dev/sda1 /mnt/removable vfat pamconsole,exec,noauto,codepage=850,iocharset=iso8859-1,managed 0 0 Thanks again!
  2. Made your changes, same result. Here's my fstab: # This file is edited by fstab-sync - see 'man fstab-sync' for details /dev/hda1 / ext2 umask=0022,nls=iso8859-1,ro 1 1 /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom auto umask=0022,user,iocharset=iso8859-1,sync,codepage=850,noauto,ro,exec,users 0 0 /dev/hdb1 /mnt/windows ntfs umask=0 ro,users,auto 0 0 none /proc proc defaults 0 0 /dev/hda6 /usr reiserfs notail 1 2 /dev/hda5 swap swap defaults 0 0 /dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom1 auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,utf8,codepage=850,iocharset=iso8859-1,managed 0 0 /dev/sda1 /mnt/removable vfat pamconsole,exec,noauto,codepage=850,iocharset=iso8859-1,managed 0 0 I also tried removing the ro (read-only?), and changing the 0 0 at the end of the windows entry to 1 2, to match your suggestion with no success.
  3. Hello, everyone: When I try to access my windows partition as a regular user, I get... [???????@localhost mnt]$ cd windows bash: cd: windows: Permission denied [???????@localhost mnt]$ But it works as root.... [???????@localhost mnt]$ su Password: [root@localhost mnt]# cd windows [root@localhost windows]# In my attempts to solve the problem, I have attempted to use mcc to set the permissions for /mnt/windows/ for my user account to 744, and gotten the same results as above. Thank you, MrMorden
  4. I got it working; it was that X configuration utility from Nvidia that fouled things up. Fortunately, it saved the previous version of xorg.conf, which I reverted to. Thanks for your help! -MrMorden
  5. I'm afraid I don't know all the information that site asks for.
  6. I was using the MCC "configure your monitor." Edit: clarification
  7. ...and I managed to make it worse. In further attempts to find a solution, I opened up MCC, went to "configure your monitor," and changed it to a 1280x1024, 60 Hz (I have an LCD monitor, so I didn't think the refresh rate would matter) Now X won't come up at all, and I had to reboot back into Windows to make this post. I tried reinstalling the drivers again and let it run that X configuration utility, and the Nvidia splash screen comes up before dropping me to a command line. Help! Thanks again, MrMorden
  8. I recently reinstalled my drivers because I upgraded to a GeForce 6800. My desktop had been set to 800x600, so I told it to go back to 1280x1024. When I did so, it gives me more desktop space, but the extra space appears off the edge of the screen! To see my entire desktop, I need to move the cursor to the edge of the screen so it scrolls. In my attempts to fix this problem, I searched google.com/linux for Desktop does not all appear on screen Desktop doesn't all appear on screen I also tried rebooting, and I also tried reinstalling the drivers and let it run that X configuration utility that comes with the NForce drivers. Thank you, MrMorden
  9. What did you do to solve your problems? Others may be having the same difficulties.

    Anarchy Online

    Well, there's bad news, then good news and then more bad news. The bad news is that Anararcy Online doesn't have a Linux client, which means that it won't work out of the box. The good news is that Anarchy Online is an officially supported title for Cedega, a program that is meant to run Windows games on Linux. The more bad news is that, despite it's status as "officially supported," there is still some chance (pretty small since it's playability rating is 4 out of five, and the "Unnoficial TransGaming wiki" says that the game works with no problems) that you won't be able to get it to run on your system. Furthermore, unlike Linux, Cedega is not free software, so you will have to pay for it. The price is $15 for the first three months, and $5 for every month afterwards. The $5/month is the cost you pay for upgrades; canceling your Cedgea membership will not break Cedega. Your chances are better if you have an nVidia graphics card instead of an ATI card, since nVidia's Linux drivers are orders of magnitude better. Here are some useful resources: http://www.transgaming.com http://www.transgaming.org http://cedegawiki.sweetleafstudios.com/wiki/Anarchy_Online Hope this helps! MrMorden
  11. Amen MrMorden Amen .. :D <{POST_SNAPBACK}> I'm kind of surprised that Linux doesn't advertise itself more extensively on these grounds. People can say "OMG Linux does all of the same things that Windows can do for you!" (If "you" means a typical user.) But until people percieve a NEED that Linux can fulfill that Windows can't (cheaper, more secure) then people will stick with the default. (Windows...unless they shop at WalMart. And who wants to do that? And who wants their OS associated with WalMart in any case?)
  12. I used to use Cedgea to handle all of my Windows gaming needs (Temple of Elemental Evil) and the other game I was really interested in (Neverwinter Nights) runs natively. However, I recently bought Battlefield 2. When they get BF2 working in Cedgea, I'll transfer that over. However, until Linux gaming support improves, I'm going to need to keep Windows around to handle any new games that I decide that I absolutely must have. (BF2 has been the first such game since ToEE) I don't consider dual booting "betraying the movement" at all because I don't consider myself a part of any OSS "movement." I use Linux because it fills a need that Windows doesn't; namely, a stable OS that isn't quite so vulnerable to the remote-exploit-of-the-week, spyware, viruses, &c, and also doesn't require new hardware. (So OS X doesn't fit the bill.) Edit: Style, precision Edit2: Spelling
  13. Hello again, people: I just upgraded to 10.2 (aka LE 2005) and I'm having problems with permissions again. Under 10.1, I would go to MCC and set rules regarding permissions for non-root users. However, MCC>Security>Permissions is gone in 10.2! How do I properly set permissions in 10.2? In my attempts to solve the problem, I searched www.google.com/linux for how to set permissions Mandrake 10.2 mcc how to set permissions Mandrake 10.2 how to "set permissions" Mandrake 10.2 and a few other variants. Thank you, MrMorden Edit: Clarification [moved from Terminal Shell Commands, etc by spinynorman]
  14. I basically play NWN. Since that's what my computer gaming has been reduced to recently, Linux fits my needs just fine.
