  1. thanks, it was just my stupidity in the end though! the -use-pthreads no option did the trick. funnily enough, I can't get a shortcut on the desktop (cedega -use-pthreads no /xxpathxx/c3.exe ) to work, just does the usual kde trick of pretending to start and then disappearing without trace.
  2. Hi All. Running MDK10 Official, and I just got Cedega. I installed it fine, I go to the Caesar3 cd (which is supported officially btw), and type cedega SETUP.EXE in /mnt/cdrom2. My only response is said error message about x11drv, 3 times in fact and then it quits. Other games and exe's get an identical response. My system: k62-400mhz Voodoo3 PCI 192mb RAM Tuxracer etc all work fine. Any ideas? I tried the pthreads=off, got the same message.
  3. I do not have the money to fix my cd-rom. If I could, I would. Sigh...
  4. Well, I emailed the guy at mandrake who according to anthill is responsible for squashing this bug, and the only response I get is: "Doesn't your BIOS support boot from usb-cdrom?" Well, obviously not, otherwise I wouldn't be asking for hdcdrom_usb.img, would I? My BIOS is from '99 and no such option is present. Maybe I should look into another distro or something, Mandrake seems to be a bit flaky...
  5. No-one? I tried the 10.0 beta 2 hdcdrom_usb, but I didn't quite like the look of it and it gave some odd errors. So I tried the normal cdrom.img, that of course only worked with my ide (broken) cdrom which is no good. Hm. I have the 9.2 discs, could I install 9.2 and then install 10.0 on top of it, without having to reboot and fiddle around?
  6. Hey all My pc's regular cdrom drive is screwed, so I have to use my usb cd-rom drive. Unfortunately this only works in windows. However, mdk92 allowed a boot image to boot from a floppy and read from a usb cdrom: hdcdrom_usb.img install from a hard-disk or a cdrom connected to USB However, tried to do this, but uh, the image isn't in the mdk10 cd. It was in the 9.2 one though. I'm using the download edition. I haven't tried the normal cdrom.img (maybe they've updated it to include usb support) but if that doesn't work I'm a bit screwed. :/ Can anyone shed some light on this matter? -edit- apparently it's an omission. I wrote the hdcdrom_usb image from 10.0 beta2 (d/led from web), is it a good idea to install from this? any other options? responses soon would be great! also, installing from hd not really an option as my hd is only 4gb in size!
  7. Hi All. I was wondering - due to the average user at this office pc I'm working on being so dense re linux - would it be possible to create a shortcut that you just click on, that logs out, and restarts the pc, and chooses the lilo option for windows? I'm on a dual boot w/ 9.1 - kde 3.1.2 The existing method of logging out, waiting for kde to restart and then clicking on the reboot button may, alas, be too complicated for the average user around here...
  8. Hey all. I'm currently running on my mandrake91 box (p700, 128mb RAM) a very simple website with its own domain name etc. Not planning on anything strenuous. Ehm - I'm new to the business though. First a dumb newb question - how does one access the apache server logs? Ie where is it. I realise I should RTFM. ;) Much more important - I a few weeks back disabled the saslauthd and xinetd services. They were dragging down performance down terribly by generally indulging in hard disk grinding, twas intolerable. Basic question - for my http server, should these be running? And a question - what security tweaks should I make to protect against simple attacks? Thanks in advance!
  9. thanks lads, got most stuff working though don't have write access to the old /home/olduser yet, but hopefully will soon... any ideas on the xinetd/sasauthd stuff btw?

    KDE Annoyances

    Hi all couple of things are a bugging me! Using KDE 3.1.2 on a normal mdk 9.1 install 1) Maximised windows cover the taskbar. How do I fix this? 2) I don't like Virtual Desktops. Therefore I edited it down to 1 vd on the taskbar, but I want to remove it completely. How...? 3) Sub-pixel hinting. Whenever I turn it on in the kde prefs, it supposedly works (can't see much difference). But everytime I reboot or relogin to KDE... the option is cleared again. Why? 4) Any way to make Konqueror open new location tabs by default? Thanks! I have others too but I've forgotten them for now.
  11. Hi kids, sorry to bother you. For some reason last week my primary user account (not root) went very odd, the K Menu vanished into the ether leaving only the logout and a couple of other options, the desktop lost some of the icons associated with .desktop things, konqueror refused to work some of the time, etc, so I logged in as root and created a newuser, and now I autologin into this. So far so good... Problem is, uh, I can't seem to access anything other than my /home/newuser directory. My old user account could at least access the other things.. I'd like this user to be able to view everything and have access to the entire /home dir. But uh, I don't know how to do this - Userdrake seems to be useless, as I can't find anything to do with folder permissions, only some stuff about groups (anyone can tell me about that too, feel free). Anyone? Cheers. PS - I observed odd hard disk thrashing for my newly created user account. On shutdown, I noticed that when the xinetd/saslauthd services (not sure which one might even be atd too) were shut down the thrashing instantly stopped. So I've turned off both services. Any negative impact for doing this? They didn't seem too crucial, though I may wish to run a web server from this machine at some stage in the future. Also, security is set to "High" in mandrake config.
  12. No, I installed Java 1.4.1 direct off of Suns site, by extracting etc according to some guide I read.
  13. Greetings. This $PATH variable, then. Apparently my Java isn't typically found because it isn't in my path, along with some other stuff. 1) How does one edit this PATH variable. I remember it used to be so simple in the DOS days. 2) Are there different $PATHS for root and normal users? 3) Any tips? Thanks in advance. Forgive my ignorance in this matter.
  14. Hm, I had to reboot and then renable supermount again for it to work. Strange...
  15. How does one disable supermount exactly? ah, yes, "supermount disable" ;) hm, will give this a go. do I have reboot I wonder?
