  1. Like jboy says, if you add a trailing slash, it works fine.


    Below is a conversation with your server WITHOUT using the trailing slash:


    david@inspiron:~$ telnet pwks.no-ip.org 80
    Connected to pwks.no-ip.org.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    GET /photoworks HTTP/1.0
    HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently
    Date: Wed, 26 Jul 2006 21:04:42 GMT
    Server: Apache/1.3.33 (Mandriva Linux/3mdk) PHP/5.0.4
    Location: [url=][/url]
    Connection: close
    Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1
    <TITLE>301 Moved Permanently</TITLE>
    <H1>Moved Permanently</H1>
    The document has moved <A HREF="">here</A>.<P>
    Connection closed by foreign host.


    If you don't use the slash, you're asking the web server for a file, not a directory. Because you have a directory, the web server responds with a redirect notice (the HTTP/1.1 301 notice). The problem is that it redirects any of your web site users to the site ''. You may know that this is the localhost, the computer your customers are sitting at, not your web server. I believe this would happen if your ServerName directive is set to or maybe localhost. Try changing it to pwks.no-ip.org


    (all just a hunch)



  2. I'll probably make roberTO's Milk2.1 available as well, since he disappeared 6 months ago and has not returned.

    That would be great. I lost my copys of the Milk themes. :sad:

    I'm sure a lot of people have. I don't have the other Max themes of roberTO's, but I figure since I have Max's permission to port anything from him as long as he gets due credit, I will carry it, and if roberTO has a prob with that he can let me know.

    I think I have all of his themes somewhere backed up.

    If anyone wants a specific theme they can remember the name of, I should be able to find it. (pm me)

    Alternatively, he's a nice guy and he's left his email on his web page: http://www.users.monornet.hu/linux/Good%20By/By....html

  3. You need to add a line to the bottom of /etc/shorewall/rules


    ACCEPT   net	 fw	  tcp	 843,655,111,671
    ACCEPT   net	 fw	  udp	652,668,837,840,111


    This is the format from my file, where I'm "ACCEPT"ing connections from the "net" zone (defined as my external interface) to the fw (firewall - i.e. computer shorewall is on). The information on protocols and ports is from aioshin's post. If you're only allowing access to LAN computers, you'll want to find out what the zones your computer has. It's quite likely mandrake will have named it "net", even though in your case "lan" would be more appropriate.



  4. VMware needs to run some code in the kernel to reinterpret code from your physical processor. In Windows, you would install a driver to do this (the windows vmware install does this for you). The process on linux is a little bit more involved as you have to 'compile' the driver yourself.


    Best idea is to download it: http://www.vmware.com/products/server/ and try and follow the install procedure. If you run into specific problems, ask here. Once you have it installed, it's a very nice easy to use program. I have no idea what you mean by 'w/ Paralles' (sic?) so can't compare.

  5. I reckon you're doing the right thing to achieve your aim but...


    Is it really worth the hassle just to stick to a tutorial, to the letter?


    Some people like to put their software on a separate /usr/local partition to save it in case of filesystem corruption, but when it's built against software elsewhere, in the gentoo way, and other software may depend on it, it's seems like storing up problems for yourself.


    Let us know how well it works anyway :D

  6. My point was, who actually cares about exchange, a microsoft product, when you can use pop3 and IMAP, which are not microsoft products?

    You go and tell your boss that he should throw away his thousands of $ in exchange because you want to use mandriva on the desktop. What Exchange does is an easy to manage all in one solution. the closest thing open source has at the moment is hula, which is only available through subversion because there hasn't been an official public release.


    I'm certainly not a fan of Exchange btw, but there are reasons it gets chosen.

  7. Possibly even better:


    X11 EvIE extension library

    libXevie provides an X Window System client interface to the EvIE

    extension to the X protocol.


    The EvIE (Event Interception Extension) allows for clients to be able to

    intercept all events coming through the server and then decide what to do

    with them, including being able to modify or discard events.


    More information about X.Org can be found at:




    This module can be found as the module 'lib/Xevie' at


  8. I don't think you need to go quite so low level, GUI I/O is managed by X, so you need to find if X has a key logging ability built in.


    This post: http://linux.ucla.edu/pipermail/linux/2003...ber/008868.html suggests not, but given the modularisation of X, it wouldn't be too hard to modify the source to the Xev module and add a couple of lines of code to open a log file and echo the code of each key press to it along with a time stamp :)


    Good luck

  9. Setting up an ftp server without a router is easier than using a router. On the mandrake computer that has a direct connection to the internet, open ports 20 and 21 in your firewall. You can use wizard in the mandriva control centre.

    You'll also need some ftp server software, vsftpd seems to be generally considered the best. Configure it as you please using the file in /etc but do remember to make sure anonymous access is not enabled unless that is really what you want.


    Edit: users and passwords. With vsftpd, you can use your normal mandrake users and passwords, just add another user as you would normally with the mandriva control centre and allow local users to login using the vsftpd.conf file in /etc

  10. It depends on which particular libraries he wants to link to. glibc is licensed with the LGPL and so he can link to that without making his application open source. I assume it's similar for openal because it's used in commercial games, but don't take my word for it. If it's a GUI app he should bear in mind that the gnome libraries are LGPL and the kde libraries, or at least QT, are GPL without a commercial license from Trolltech.

  11. 5222 is to HTTP as 5223 is to HTTPS

    (They do the same thing but the latter is encrypted)


    edit: Newer clients can also talk to the server and arrange encryption on port 5222. Gaim can do this so it would be best to connect on 5222, whereas ichat cannot (i guess), making it a legacy client.

  12. It gets fast towards the end, are you sure you're not running it at the same time as some other cpu sapping application?


    other thoughts...


    GLX with composite is buggy, try turning that to false and commenting out your extensions section
