  1. dam... Was just searching the mirrors just 12 hours prior to your post hoping to get a jump on the ISOs... and not finding anything... I opted to try a URPMI upgrade instead. Now I keep losing the connection to the mirror with curl errors and having to keep restarting. Going on my fourth attempt to finish this upgrade when I get home from work. Mirrors prolly getting hammered now and will make it more difficult to finish. What's this mini ISO ? Maybe a better option for those such as DragonMage to download and install a new system, and then install other apps later ?
  2. Yes, that should work... as long as the CDs are added as a source in "Software Media Manager" Probally good to remove all previous sources (to avoid any conflicts) prior to setting up those new sources. From the easyurpmi site ;) :
  3. Welcome, Konq needs a symlink for java to work: [scoopy@localhost scoopy]$ su Password: [root@localhost scoopy]# cd /usr/bin [root@localhost bin]# ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_01//bin/java java [root@localhost bin]# then [root@localhost scoopy]# cd /usr/lib/netscape/plugins [root@localhost plugins]# ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_01/plugin/i386/ns4/libjavaplugin.so libjavaplugin.so now goto: K --> Configuration --> Configure your Desktop under WebBrowsing, be sure Endable Java globally is checked and, under Plugins click on Scan for New Plugins. Restart your browser and you should be good to go. Here's a test page: http://java.com/en/download/help/testvm.jsp
  4. First, I like the new direction, and yes, it was a good read ;) The thing that hit me first viewing with Mozilla were missing background images. So I look up what you have there. background: black url(images/mdklogobgdkbl.jpg) 0 0 repeat fixed; This is different than the way I use this feature and may possibly be the cause of why they don't show in Mozilla. For comparison, here's the same line from one of my css stylesheets: color: #00ff00; background-image: url(images/navbar.jpg) I am only making a quick guess/observation here as I am at work and don't have my favorite text editor handy to read the css better. I really don't know css that well either, but I have heard that Mozilla is a lot pickier on its code than IE or Konq. ;)
  5. Welcome to MUB Trio3b, To elaborate... windows does not have to be "reinstalled"... just as long as it is installed before linux. The easiest way is to add that second harddrive and install linux there. I have a similiar setup, Win2k (NTFS) on pri master, and Mandrake 10 (ReiserFS) on pri slave. I have other FAT32 partitions that I use to share files between windows and linux (this could be that 3rd partition you read about) And if your install goes as smoothly as it should (barring hardware problems or bad install discs) you should reboot to a screen (LILO) that will ask you whether you want to start windows or linux. Not too many users need to be fiddling with their windows boot files... the normal problem is the XFree config file that needs to be tweaked to boot into a GUI. good luck,

    Apache 2

    Welcome aboard :D The command to start apache using a console or terminal as SU : apachectl start or you can set it to start automatically upon boot in the Mandrake Control Center... under services (httpd). Files normally go in... /var/www/html
  7. It seems you should have FTP access... according to the admin post on their forums. They say to use this address (w/ IE or w/ a file manager such as konquorr): ftp://{username}:{password}@ftp.aloofhosting.com or with a FTP client... just use: ftp.aloofhosting.com and put in username and pass when asked. It also seems a lot of members do have problems connecting, but they say to keep trying.
  8. I am pretty sure they can be used together. Just put them in and you will know the first few seconds of booting whether or not they work. A RAM check is like the first process during bootup long before the OS kicks in.
  9. Think maybe luizmdk means to use "How do I" instead of "As I" ??? luizmdk, could you rephrase your question ?... or post it in Portuguese? (then hopefully someone could give us a clearer translation here) [edited by spinynorman]
  10. Could tell 'ya how in photoshop... but exact steps in gimp will have to wait till I get to my Mandrake box. I assume you mean that you want to merge two photos (with these faces). Basically, you will want to create a new... transparent layer for each image and make the top layer to something like 50 % transparency. Then flatten / merge the layers... or export the file... something like that. Or you could make the different layers and use the erasor brush to do something like erase the eyes on the top layer to bring the eyes from the bottom layer through. I'll look into the exact gimp terms later... unless someone else can do this before I get to it.

    My eyes hurt

    I guess we need to figure out what sort of video chip your running on. You told me: Which is not helping any. Maybe tell us the brand and model number of your computer and someone would be able to look up which video chip it is running on. Then someone here may be able to find a cure for the green man.
  12. Spellchecker is working here with Mozilla.
  13. Images, whether a normal placement on a web page or as a background image... can be tricky to scale to size (percentage). It is possible --- if you want to go through all the hassle of adding a script that recognizes your screen resolution and then displays a custom page for that size. Your best bet is to size the image down to what most web surfers use. According to my figures, 95 percent of users have either 1024x768 or 800x600. So with that in mind, I inserted this image on the page as a normal image and displayed it at 800 pixels wide. Now this leaves some blank space we can dress up a bit. I added a background color and a border. I also don't have the font "creature" installed, and I imagine others don't either. This made for a very unreadable title on your page. To correct this, I added a couple alternate fonts to use instead. *see index page attached for the code and jpg for how it looks w/ 1024x768 * As for logins and passwords... I haven't done anything like that from scratch ( I use those ready made web apps that come with logins ) but I would search google for a script you could add to your index page. http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&ie=ISO-...G=Google+Search php is best, but you may find a javascript one that would be much easier to do. Kindex.html
  14. You can try telling Konqueror to identify itself as explorer? Worth a shot I guess. Settings --> Configure Konqueror Browser Identification --> Click "New" button and choose something under "Use the following indentification"
  15. Stop that ! :P Look at your source... where did this line come from in between your <head></head> tags? <a href+"./http://216.98.xxx.xx/kilimanjaro">kilimanjaro</a> PS: while your in there editing your index file... don't forget to change this line if you want the background image to show to your visitors... this: url(file:///home/kilimanjaro/Pictures/2003/eaglecap/eaglecap%20%232/p1010002.jpg) to this: url(p1010002.jpg) ( and if you put a copy of the photo in /var/www/html )
  16. rename kilimanjaro.html to index.html then let me check what I get from here.
  17. It works good here. The link even takes me to your "kilimanjaro" folder and I can see a list of your files there. I think you are getting forbidden...because you need to use the local address within your network and not the real IP address. so for the world to access your stuff... http://216.98.xxx.xx/kilimanjaro or for you to see the same from your local machine... use this instead... I also notice the background image does not have the right path. This is a fault of composer and not you. To change this --- or to change any of the code --- open up in any text editor --- kate works good for me --- maybe gedit for gnome people ? you will want to change: url(file:///var/www/html/kilimanjaro/fotos/Glass%20lake.jpg) to url(kilimanjaro/fotos/Glass%20lake.jpg) and I think you should be able to figure out where that page title is too. your getting there
  18. Good.. glad that's fixed... cause I had no idea. So now... inbetween those coffee breaks... you gonna mess around with composer? don't think you can do much damage there.
  19. Don't know what you could of done to do that ??? Did you try a file that you know worked before ? Maybe you tried a different file and don't have the right codec for it ?
  20. I think he means to edit out your IP in your posts on this forum... so they are not published anywhere. This will make it harder for any would be hackers to find you. I think you will just need to start playing with one of the editors and see what it does before worrying about doing anything great. Open up mozilla and then open up a composer window ( Click on the composer icon in the lower left side corner of mozilla ) . Either start by just typing things in and changing the font or moving things around... OR try saving a simple web page (such as google.com) and then open that up with composer and try to understand the layout and tags they use and how it produces that page. Composer has like 4 different ways to view a page. Normal view (which is how it first opens and looks pretty much like a word type doc, but shows some other extras), HTML tags (this is kina confusing and I don't bother with it myself), Source (this is good to see your text with the HTML tags used), and preview ( to see what it should look like when viewed in a browser) You can save your page with any name you like, including index.html (or .htm even) and will be viewable with any browser... as long as the code is valid.
  21. try this to start leaning some html: http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_primary.asp OR, if you want to try a gui editor... any chance you got mozilla installed ? Try out the editor that comes with (full install) mozilla-composer.
  22. Try this: put a few files in your test folder. then make a new text file with the following line and name it .htaccess (make sure it begins with the dot) Options +Indexes this should give you a listing of everything in that folder... BUT you can not have an index.html page in that folder. and yes you can change that apache index file to whatever you want to come up when someone goes to your IP address.
  23. did we change the owner of all the files ? to root ? The files should come up as a list, which you can just click on... and it will either open in the browser or become a download... that's if you are allowing directory listings (we can deal with that later) If you want to put a link to your files on a web page (possibly even index.html) you can do something like this. Say we want to make a document available for download. Place a copy of this document (ex: school.doc) in your "test" folder and pretend the index is one level above this. You would link School Document to /test/school.doc What I do to make folders... I made me a "superuser" konquorer browser for this purpose. (In KDE) Right click on desktop and choose Create New --> File --> Link to Application. Link it to kdesu konqueror. This gives you a file browser with root's permissions. That's a whole new ballgame there. Let's take this step by step. Just don't go posting any of those "special" photos of Sarah yet ;)
  24. all my web files (under /var/www/html) are owner: root and group: root that could be the problem... how did apache get ownership ? I would try changing the folder "test" and its "index.html" to root and then see.
