  1. Well thats not working. As far as I can tell, parts of the URL are interpreted as shell commands producing errors. I get a blank screen. And if what you say is true then if it did work I would have a static image, refreshed at the specified interval. I need the live radar. I can always just open it in a browser to see it but was hoping I could put the live radar in my desktop.
  2. Well thats helpfull. I am going to assume that because of the nature of the URL it is simple not possible. I base this on the errors I get.
  3. I am using the kwebdesktop feature.
  4. Ok I am using LE2005 and I am trying to get this image... http://radblast.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/r...bels=1&severe=0 To run in the lower right corner of my desktop. And I cant get to work at all. Please help. [moved from Everything Linux by spinynorman]
  5. Yeah it shows file creation time to be at reboot. Here is the output from the find cmd.. grep: /proc/sys/net/ipv6/route/flush: Invalid argument grep: /proc/sys/net/ipv4/route/flush: Invalid argument grep: /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc/register: Invalid argument grep: /proc/sysrq-trigger: Invalid argument After that the cmd Hangs and does nothing.
  6. You may not even need to be running your Font Server. You only need to run it if you want a remote X terminal to be able to use fonts from your system, or if you want to use fonts that your X server doesn't understand. It can be disabled by modifying your start up scripts. Before you do that though, issue the command, as root, "service xfs stop" And see how your apps run without it.
  7. Try it. Add a simply line to it. So it looks something like this like this... "Welcome to my Computer" Mandrakelinux release 10.2 (Limited Edition 2005) for i586 Kernel 2.6.11-6mdk on an i686 / \l Or which ever version you are using Then go to a text mode login screen, Log in then log out. You should see your addition. Then reboot. On mine, when I reboot, my addition is gone.
  8. Tried that. The file is read only and POW, it is now back to the MDK default. And I dont like this at all. I am sure it is some kind of security feature to protect system files, and thats all good, but does this mean that the numerous customizations I have made to my configuration disappear? What other files does it do this to? Am I going to have to find a different distro or even build from scratch to get the full customization I need? I am NOT going to go back and check EVERYTHING after a simple reboot. (Which I am going to have to do later today because I am rebuilding the kernel to remove built in support for hardware I don't use.)
  9. Well I took the path I know best. I used the "Konstruct" package from KDE.org to install KDE 3.4.1 It is all working just fine.
  10. We are using 2005 LE and I have REPEATEDLY edited the /etc/issue file to show Company name/Logo and computer name and domain. It works just fine and then, then next day it is back to MDK default. WHY?? FYI, the /etc/issue file controls what is displayed on a text mode login screen. [moved from Software by spinynorman]
  11. After they import into separate folders, move them to the inbox then delete the extra folders.
  12. I had serious trouble with the nVidia driver and LE2005. I solved the Problem by preloading the nVidia module by adding the line "nvidia NVreg_SoftEDIDs=0 NVreg_Mobile=0" to my /etc/modprobe.preload file.
