  1. I have a slow dialup connection and I do most of my downloading of large files at night. What would the the command line look like for dounloading Mozilla-thunderbird 1.5, mozilla- firefox 1.5 and say gimp 2.3 and then turn the computer off after all downloads are finished. many thanks maparus
  2. Anyone have any idea when the stable version of Mandriva 2007 is sceduled for release. I have a slow dialup and will have to wait until the CD's go on sale at Edmunds or Frozentech. maparus
  3. I couldn't see how to change the ip address of ny Windows XP puter so I left it at 192.168.2.253. I then assigned my Linux puter with 192.168.2.1. I pinged my Linux puter from my Windows XP puter and recieved the following Pinging 192.168.2.1 with 32 bytes of data: Reply from 192.168.2.1 : bytes =32 Time <ims TTL =64 Reply from 192.168.2.1 : bytes =32 Time <ims TTL =64 Reply from 192.168.2.1 : bytes =32 Time <ims TTL =64 Reply from 192.168.2.1 : bytes =32 Time <ims TTL =64 Ping statistics for 192.168.2.1: Packets: sent =4, Recieved =4, Lost =0 =<0% loss> Approximate round trip times im milli-seconds: Min. =0ms Max. =oms, average =0ms I then pinged my Windows XP puter from my Linux puter and recieved Password: [root@margie maparus]# ping 192.168.2.253 PING 192.168.2.253 (192.168.2.253) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from 192.168.2.253: icmp_seq=1 ttl=128 time=0.104 ms 64 bytes from 192.168.2.253: icmp_seq=2 ttl=128 time=0.074 ms 64 bytes from 192.168.2.253: icmp_seq=3 ttl=128 time=0.072 ms 64 bytes from 192.168.2.253: icmp_seq=4 ttl=128 time=0.099 ms 64 bytes from 192.168.2.253: icmp_seq=5 ttl=128 time=0.099 ms 64 bytes from 192.168.2.253: icmp_seq=6 ttl=128 time=0.097 ms 64 bytes from 192.168.2.253: icmp_seq=7 ttl=128 time=0.099 ms 64 bytes from 192.168.2.253: icmp_seq=8 ttl=128 time=0.099 ms 64 bytes from 192.168.2.253: icmp_seq=9 ttl=128 time=0.074 ms 64 bytes from 192.168.2.253: icmp_seq=10 ttl=128 time=0.097 ms 64 bytes from 192.168.2.253: icmp_seq=11 ttl=128 time=0.072 ms 64 bytes from 192.168.2.253: icmp_seq=12 ttl=128 time=0.071 ms 64 bytes from 192.168.2.253: icmp_seq=13 ttl=128 time=0.072 ms 64 bytes from 192.168.2.253: icmp_seq=14 ttl=128 time=0.072 ms 64 bytes from 192.168.2.253: icmp_seq=15 ttl=128 time=0.099 ms 64 bytes from 192.168.2.253: icmp_seq=16 ttl=128 time=0.075 ms 64 bytes from 192.168.2.253: icmp_seq=17 ttl=128 time=0.086 ms 64 bytes from 192.168.2.253: icmp_seq=18 ttl=128 time=0.098 ms 64 bytes from 192.168.2.253: icmp_seq=19 ttl=128 time=0.086 ms 64 bytes from 192.168.2.253: icmp_seq=20 ttl=128 time=0.100 ms What does all this mean.

  4. Thank you this I can understand Many thanks maparus
  5. I was able to follow you until I got here (and then allocate a static ip address with the correct subnet mask.) I don't know what this means. I did come to a place called DHCP host name.
  6. Thank you for the information Can you walk me through as to how I assign an ip address to each machine and explan about how to enable file sharing? thanks maparus
  7. My old HPPavilian 512 has a plug-in on the back panel that says Ethernet. My new computer I built has a simular plug-in on the back panel that says RJ-45 Port. Are they the same thing? Is this where the crossover cable plugs in to transfur files from one computer to the other. My old computer is a Celeron with Windows XP and my new one is a Sempron with Mandriva 2006. Will that cause a problem? What else do I need to connect the two computers?

  9. I just bought a NEC ND 3550A DVD burner. I've read about flashing the burner and I am just as confused now as I was before I read the first article. Can someone tell me why I need to flash and which filmware I need to use and how to do it in Newbie language I can understand.

  10. When I first tried to install aMule I couldn't get any servers so I went to the aMule forum and did a search and this is what I found http://forum.amule.org/thread.php?threadid=10183&sid= This poor guy was as lost as I am and the only thing (Kry Kry is a male Main Developer / Admin / Rude ) said was update to aMule2.1.2. I found a few other searches where they only argued over what the correct answer was so it was certain I was not going to get a straight answer there so I started looking for aMule and the only aMule 2.1.2 I could find was a tar file. I have never been able to install a tar successively so I thought I would try this one well it looks like I picked the wrong one to try because it has been one problem after another. I tried to use urpmi again and have the same problem when trying to get a server list. I updated Failed to load server.met file '/home/maparus/.aMule/server.met.download', unknown format encountered. & Not connected Kad off I did learn a few things though I know NOT to compile in root only at the end where I make file. And I may have the tools now to install a tar file that is less complacated than this one was. I would like to install a tar just once to see if I can do it. After 6 months of using Linux it has become a quest. So that's the whole story in a nutshell

  12. Here's ny latest attempt. Permission is denied unless I'm in root I would think that is because I extracted it in root. I know not to do that now. As you can see I still have some no's showing so what do I need know?

  13. I checked urpmi for compiler and found nothing I then did a Google search for c++ to get more information and several said to install gcc. I then checked Urpmi again for C++ and GCC and GCC is already installed Which file do I need to install then ?

  14. I installed aMule from urpmi and because of some problems I had the aMule forum said I have to upgrade to aMule- 2.1.2. The only version I can find is a tar.file which I have always had problems with but Thought would try again. This is the result. What is it I need to do?

  18. Most of my learning of Linux has been trial and error so I've had to reinstall the urpmi sources many times but I never noticed the box on the easy-urpmi site that you can click to get a condensed version of the sources. What normally would take many hours to get all my sources was done in a matter of a couple of hours. So I'm ready for another guestion. I ran urpmi --auto-select --unclean and it did exactly what you said it would do. 148 packages at 865mb. WOW! That's a big chunk Two questions 1. For future reference how do I add --resume to the configuration and how do I pause the down loads and how do I get them started again? 2. The main programs I would want to make copies of are Firefox, Thunderbird, Gimp-2.3 ect. So what would I type in the terminal for say Gimp-2.3.6-1.2006.sos in order to download the package with dependaceies and maintain a copy in /var/cache/urpmi/rpms many thank maparus
  19. You're right ! I don't have them all I'll post again in a couple of days when I have them all If I have any more problems Thanks maparus
  20. Now I'm really embarassed. I thought it was a program Do I type urpmi --auto-select --noclean in a terminal. It didn't seem to work. It brought up [root@localhost maparus]# urpmi --auto-select --noclean Some package requested cannot be installed: k3b-0.12.15-1.1.20060.SoS.i586 (due to missing libk3b2-0.12.15-1.1.20060.SoS.i586) libk3b2-0.12.15-1.1.20060.SoS.i586 (due to unsatisfied libmpcdec.so.3) Continue? (Y/n) I said no and canceled
  21. I have a slow dial up and would like to make a copy of the RPMS that urpmi installs for future use but before I can get to /var/cache/urpmi/rpms to get a copy urpmi has already deleted it. How can I stop urpmi from deleting them until after I've made a copy? many thanks maparus [moved from Software by spinynorman]
