  1. Don't remove it. You do need its core. You are although not limited to its web-based interface. It's OK. If you do "ls -l /dev/printer", you see that it's just a symbolic link to /dev/lp0. If on the other hand it's not, just type "/dev/lp0" instead of "/dev/printer".
  2. I'm afraid you misinterpreted the meaning of "Location". It doesn't mean "driver location", but rather just describes to the users where the printer is physically located. For example, "Adjacent to John Doe's room" would give an excellent "Location". It says that a printer name may not contain spaces. You've given the printer the "HP OfficeJet" name, containing a space. Just give an alternative name, with no spaces. "HP_OfficeJet" would go nicely.
  3. You're correct, you need NVIDIA kernel module for version 1.0-8756. This "dkms-nvidia" is what would eventually become the NVIDIA kernel module. You need to obtain dkms-nvidia-8756, and to uninstall -7676, in addition to obtaining kernel-source.
  4. Krusader may be used for archiving as well. Select the files and choose the "pack" command. The same goes for Konqueror - select the files, right-click. "Compress", "Zip Archive".
  5. freely (well, almost) available to anybody who may decide to break into them... I'd rather prefer not...
  6. Audacity uses OSS by default and not ALSA. It should be compiled with some special parameters to use ALSA.

    Recently, I've rebuilt and installed Cooker version of 2.0.2 on my "2006 with lots of recompiled Cooker packages" machine. I'd still refrain from calling its startup fast, but it's a lot faster than 2.0's startup.
  8. This option should be muted in case of analog speakers.
  9. Let's go even further :) This minimalistic bootstrapping part may actually replace BIOS, so the kernel would be pure Java ( heaven forbid )
  10. From purely theoretical point of view, (mostly) Java-based kernel is possible. Build some minimal kernel including Java VM, in C, write all the rest in Java, boot the minimal kernel, load all the rest and let it crawl along :) Bootstrapping at its best :)
  11. You're a good bit lucky. They're doing very good work, I personally use their packages, but nevertheless, there have been a lot of bugs in those packages.
  12. Open alsamixer or kmix or any else alsa-based mixer, and check that "Audigy Analog/Digital Output Jack" is muted if you've got analog speakers, or unmuted in case of digital ones.
  13. Got myself iRiver iFP 795 just yesterday, haven't got time to learn it fully yet. So, just several points : - If you purchase iRiver iFP, do your homework and purchase one that has UMS firmware available . There are Linux tools supporting iManager-based players, but I'm personally inclined to think that working with a regular USB drive would be preferable. - iRiver FPs play Oggs encoded with bitrate in 96K-225K range. No less, no more. Although, it may be some limitation of the UMS firmware, and the players may support a broader range of Oggs with their default one. - I've yet to see some more stupid user interface
  14. Not exactly "line by line" as seen on the screen. "urpmi.addmedia .... with hdlist.cz" is actually one command. So, you open a root terminal ( or "su" in your regular terminal), and then you feed in the commands you received, one by one ( you may unite them, as a matter of fact, but spotting errors is harder in this case).
