  1. Hello everyone, I have noticed that when I select what type of session I log into (gnome, kde, etc) I can also select the langauge, I was wondering if there was a way to install and use the Italian language, but have the option to use either english or italian. Thank you -Neocytrix
  2. Hello all, I have been trying to make my windows drive accessable from my user account. However, everytime I try to open it, a message box pops up and says that I don't have sufficient privilages. So I log on as root and when I got to change the privilages, it says that it cannot change the permissions. Below is a copy of my fstab file. # /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> proc /proc proc defaults 0 0 /dev/hda6 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1 /dev/hda5 none swap sw 0 0 /dev/hdb /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,auto 0 0 /dev/hdc /media/cdrom1 udf,iso9660 user,auto 0 0 /dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto 0 0 /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs rw,user,auto 0 0 Any help would be appreciated, im completely stumped. -neocytrix
  3. Hello everyone, I am trying to install the Java compiler onto my Debian system. I downloaded a file called . Can someone please enlighten me on how I would go about installing this type of file. I thought I had done it before using something like but all I get with that isj2eesdk-1_4_03-linux.bin: cannot execute binary file . Any help is greatly appreciated -Neocytrix
  4. Got it!!!! Thank you so much to everyone who helped me with this problem. I really appreciate it :-)
  5. Okay I changed it to what you wanted and now I get the option menu :D But I still can't boot Windows, it says unexpected EOF, Does this mean that maybe theres a syntax error in my lilo.conf? neocytrix

  7. Okay I think I changed it but it still just boots linux without giving me the option to boot windows.

  8. Hello Again, When installing Debian, grub for some reason failed, and I was forced to install Lilo. However, now I can only boot into Linux(I have a dual boot system with Windows XP) Where could I edit lilo to reconize and give me the option to boot windows? Neocytrix
  9. Hello all, I just recently installed the newest version of debian(testing) and everytime I go to use "apt-get", it confirms how much disk space will be taken up after unpacking, then I get the following: Media change: please insert the disc labeled 'Debian GNU/Linux testing _Etch_ - Official Snapshot i386 Binary-1 (20060810)' in the drive '/cdrom/' and press enter Where do I get this CD, and why haven't I ever needed it before with Debian? Thanks Neocytrix
  10. Hello All, I am running both Windows XP pro and Debian on the computer I am currently on. I recently formatted the Windows partition and since then, its booted right into Windows. Is there a way to only re-install the bootloader without having to do the whole OS? Thanks Neocytrix
  11. Hello all, I wanted to install limewire on my debian system. I downloaded software called alien and installed limewire with it. However, when I go to run it, I get the following: Starting LimeWire... Java exec found in PATH. Verifying... OOPS, you don't seem to have a valid JRE. LimeWire works best with Sun JRE available at http://www.java.com OOPS, unable to locate java exec in /usr/lib/ hierarchy You need to upgrade to JRE 1.4.x or newer from http://www.java.com ls: /usr/java/j*: No such file or directory OOPS, unable to locate java exec in /usr/java/ hierarchy You need to upgrade to JRE 1.4.x or newer from http://www.java.com ls: /opt/j*: No such file or directory OOPS, unable to locate java exec in /opt/ hierarchy You need to upgrade to JRE 1.4.x or newer from http://www.java.com Now when I type java -version, it returns that I have java version 1.4.2. I have no idea what to do. Thanks -neocytrix
