  1. I think the problem is that in your main httpd2.conf file (called something like that and located in /etc/httpd/conf/ or somewhere similar) has a localhost site and document root defined which aren't i n your virtual hosts file. You may want to create a VirtualHost *:80 for localhost with the httpd.conf defined document root or perhaps change that DocumentRoot and make localhost a ServerAlias of one of your existing VirtualHosts. Unless you're a guru this is always a bit of a game of trial and error, Apache's log files are usually quite helpful.


    A few other things:


    * Your server alias shouldn't be the same as the server name, I don't know if that would cause errors in apache but its not necessary. You'd use it to point www.yyy.com or maybe zzz.net to the same site as yyy.com


    * I think if you have the "NameVirtualHost *:80" directive, each of "<VirtualHost>" needs to read <VirtualHost *:80> instead.


    * If you also want one of the hosts to use HTTPS as well,

    NameVirtualHost *:443
    <VirtualHost *:443>
    ServerName domain.net
    ServerPath /var/www/domain.net
    DocumentRoot /var/www/domain.net/htdocs
    ServerAlias www.domain.net


    Because the requested website is encrypted in the SSL-ised HTTP packet, you can only have one HTTPS site per IP address.

  2. Has anyone else downloaded it?

    I've got all the zips, the md5sums match. I unzip them, then cat them together as is shown in the installation file but I somehow get a different md5sum for that finished file despite the zips downloading perfectly.

    Has anyone any ideas?

  3. graphical ssh? isn't that missing the whole point of ssh.


    All you have to do is:


    ssh username@hostnameorIP -X


    where username is the user you want to login as on the remote machine. The -X is there for if you want to run graphical applications from that ssh session. It may not be necessary on mandrake, I can't remember.

  4. do you want the proxy server to ask for a username and password or is open access ok?


    If you want anyone on your network to be able to access the net through the proxy without a password you could redirect outgoing traffic at the router to the proxy server except in the case where the traffic has come from the proxy. Shorewall is good for this.


    edit; sorry, didn't read the 'cool part'

  5. You might not find this screenshot aesthetically stunning but its technologically brilliant.

    Movies can be made transparent in totem and dragged around without dropping a frame (though cpu usage does hit 100, perhaps not surprisingly). Been waiting for this sort of stuff in linux for so long :D


    You'll also notice a little glitch in the top left, thats because the menus have a nice fade in/out, and the screenshot has captured the actions menu fading out.


    Didn't want to lose quality with a jpeg, so its here: http://www.mountainpictures.net/screenshot-180105.png (~700k)

  6. I've heard on a few occasions that compiling for i586 actually makes bigger binaries without any extra performance. Not sure how true that is.




    It does seem ridiculous to me though, a system like mandrake really desires a 200MHz+ computer, which means the mmx extensions and an i686 system. IIRC i586 starts at about 90MHz and ends at roughly 150MHz depending on the manufacturer, whats the point in compiling for that tiny range when an OS other than mandrake would be by far a better choice?
