  1. Solaris 10 "roxxx0x0x0" as a server So does RHEL/Debian/FreeBSD, all the other crap can stay home on the desktop/laptop...... B) I used RR(pre-saby) like a year ago or longer, it was decent then. I just get tired of all the 500+ distros that are .000001% change from an up stream distro but eh, whatever. :P
  2. Thanks though, I know my way around pretty well, it was just extremly weird how two systems were all bugged out. Tested my RAM too and it was fine.
  3. I had it on 24, I'm happy in fedora land, just giving ubuntu a try again.
  4. Nice, what gtk engine/theme is that? Controls - Neutronium-High Window Border - Neutronium-Rounded-2px-Border Icons - OSX Emerald Theme - MacTru
  5. Firefox, at least once a day. xchat several times gnome-terminal.... chaning themes/gnome-theme-manager rhythmbox several times banshee dialy Pretty much a lot of the apps I use daily.
  6. Alright, I tried Ubuntu for about the last 3 weeks, two box's laptop and one desktop. It's ok, seems a little slower response wise that FC6. Other than the same sudo complaints others have it "would" make a nice desktop, however both of my box's programs crashed left and right, I couldn't believe how many times the bug buddy stepped up to the plate. I've ran/tested Ubuntu before, but WOW, the bugs over took me, I started filling some, but after last night when nothing but BUG BUG BUG flashed on my screen for 5 minutes with all types, I happyily went back to Fedora :) YMMV, but 2, thats 1, 2 Box's bugged all over the place, thats good enough for me to say bai bai....

    Java GPL'ed

    I think its AWESOME! Next hopefully opensolaris along with zfs/dtrace/zones and some other goodness go GPL2/3 and we could get some really cool stuff in Linux ;)
  8. Right, some people care more about certain laws than others and would rather play it safe. ;)
  9. Sure Fedora must have a PLF source to added into the repo? http://dag.wieers.com/packages/w32codec/ http://dag.wieers.com/packages/w32codec/READTHIS
  10. New icons $ su -c "yum --enablerepo=development install echo-icon-theme" Newer artwork: $ su -c "yum --enablerepo=development update redhat-artwork fedora-logos"
  11. Try this: $ sudo ln -sf bash /bin/sh $ sudo chroot FOO $ sudo ln -sf dash /bin/sh
  12. This basically sums up what I said already http://kernelslacker.livejournal.com/62413.html
  13. ipv6 seems to be a pita.........causes all types of problems..
  14. You might try atrpms http://atrpms.net/dist/fc6/ # vi /etc/yum.repos.d/.atrpms.repo [atrpms] name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - ATrpms baseurl=http://dl.atrpms.net/fc$releasever-$basearch/atrpms/stable gpgkey=http://ATrpms.net/RPM-GPG-KEY.atrpms gpgcheck=1 enabled=0 # yum --enablerepo=atrpms install ndiswrapper That should get the bits you need. Keep in mind I don't use ndiswrapper, but I use 3945 from atrpms and keep in disabled by default and just grab the wireless stuff.
  15. In theory it should, replace your current kernel on the fly method :)
  16. http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Bugs/FC6Common # yum install yum-utils # yumdownloader kernel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.i686 # rpm -Uvh --replacefiles --replacepkgs \ kernel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.i686.rpm
  17. In the same token, Fedora's point is one of principle. If its closed, you wont find it in Fedora. Simple eh? If your principle and Fedora's principle don't meet, then you simply use another distro :)
  18. Or you can follow this: https://jdk-distros.dev.java.net/debian.html
  19. Eft seemed it bit slow on two box's I installed it on. The part about Security bothers me too. I think artics point about firewall/iptables is FC for example during firstboot lets you set things. e.g. # cat /etc/sysconfig/iptables # Firewall configuration written by system-config-securitylevel # Manual customization of this file is not recommended. *filter :INPUT ACCEPT [0:0] :FORWARD ACCEPT [0:0] :OUTPUT ACCEPT [0:0] :RH-Firewall-1-INPUT - [0:0] -A INPUT -j RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -A FORWARD -j RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -i lo -j ACCEPT -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -p icmp --icmp-type any -j ACCEPT -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -p 50 -j ACCEPT -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -p 51 -j ACCEPT -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -p udp --dport 5353 -d -j ACCEPT -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -p udp -m udp --dport 631 -j ACCEPT -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 631 -j ACCEPT -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 22 -j ACCEPT -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -j REJECT --reject-with icmp-host-prohibited COMMIT Ubuntu, nothing is set, heck openssh isn't even installed...... No SELinux, I like that too :) Xen is a pita to install on Ubuntu. No multilib for x64 users. Speaking of x64 users, Ubuntu 64 doesn't even boot on my Core 2 Duo so um.... negitve points for that one.
  20. Yup, there was a kernel bug in the install were you could end up with i3/586 instead of 686. Easy fix. # rpm -e kernel && yum install kernel If the ndiswarppr might have already d/l the kernel. You can check here: /var/cache/yum/core/packages/ Then just run: # rpm -Uhv --replacepkgs --replacefiles kernel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.i686.rpm
  21. oooo the double duper!
  22. Your using the radeon driver to and not the fglrx so that doesn't work for me (x1400) :) But I'm using Xen anyways so no biggy, thanks anyway.
  23. I just put it in both :huh:
