  1. netstat -tan Active Internet connections (servers and established) Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State It works! I had some trouble though. When I logged off from IceWM, X did not come back up. Running startx from the command line started up KDE. After a reboot though, everything seems to work. So the procedure is as follows: Edit the /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc file and next time X starts, it should be fine. 192c192 < ServerArgsLocal=-nolisten tcp -deferglyphs 16 --- > ServerArgsLocal=-deferglyphs 16
  2. Yes, running ps -ef |grep dm gives /usr/bin/kdm -nodaemon as the dm. However, there is no file for kdm in /etc/X11. There is a directory for kdm in /etc/kde/. The file /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc has an option called ServerArgsLocal which is currently set to "-deferglyphs 16". BTW, the comment next to it says that the default is "-nolisten tcp" (as I had mentioned in my previous post)! I don't know why it was changed to the insecure option. I'll post a follow up if the above changes work. Thanks for the helpful post!
  3. A firewall is necessary no matter what ports you have closed. However, it would be better to close down the port since I am not using it. BTW, it seems that KDE will close the port by default if it is chosen as the desktop environment, so it should be possible with some setting, but which file do I change?
  4. I found that my mandriva 2007.1 was listening on both ports 6000 and 7741. The other one was lisa, which was not active when I installed it. Anyway, I turned it off using chkconfig. I looked up how to prevent X from listening on this site, but the change does not seem to do anything. In the file /etc/X11/xdm/Xservers, :0 local /usr/bin/X -nolisten tcp -deferglyphs 16 I am using IceWM. Any help is appreciated, as I use this machine to access Internet.
  5. Thanks for the reply. That works in Firefox.
  6. Thanks for the reply. I tried it, and it works well as far as it goes. However, I have a low memory machine, and I am not running KDE. I would like a program that does not load all the KDE infrastructure. Further, clearing the contents of the clipboard using the klipper command only makes it unavailable to klipper. Middle click still has the data available, which is the original problem I was hoping to solve.
  7. Is there a way to access the clipboard in Mandriva similar to /dev/clipboard in cygwin? Middle click in Firefox sends the clipboard data to Google, so this is not a minor issue. I would like to have a program (daemon?) clear the clipboard data when I start firefox. I have had this problem for a while in Mandriva. I am running Mandriva 2007.1. Any help is appreciated. TIA
  8. I have downloaded the Scrapbook extension, which seems to do what I want.
  9. I have mounted a file system on NFS over a fast ethernet connection. I am able to copy files off the mounted partition at 10 MB/s, but when I try to play it using xine, it stalls after a couple of seconds. If I copy the same file onto my hard disk, it plays fine. There are no error messages in the logs. Both systems are running Mandriva 2007.1. Anyone running NFS with xine? Are there any other remote file options for Mandriva (other than Samba)? Any help is appreciated.
  10. I tried to download it from firefox and then using curl, and both failed. It seems there is some redirect that they are not parsing. HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 302 Found Location: Anyway, works with wget. Good thing Mandriva has ten different programs for the same function.
  11. Thanks--I will check it out, although the link that is given for the download doesn't seem to work. I am looking for something which can do a little more too--if I could put all the files from spidering a page in a single file, that would be sweet. Thanks for all the replies.
  12. Is there some software in Mandriva to download webpages to a single file rather than the current situation where a large number of small files are created on disk? I have to delete these manually, and moving them is no fun either. I suppose it will have to a firefox plugin for ease of use, but is there a format to which I can convert these? I looked at xchm, but it seems to look at reading chm files rather than creating it. What do people here use? I believe such a system would reduce the files on my disk to a tenth. Any help is appreciated.
  13. To make the sensors modules behave correctly, add these lines to /etc/modules.conf: #----cut here---- # I2C module options alias char-major-89 i2c-dev #----cut here---- To load everything that is needed, add this to some /etc/rc* file: #----cut here---- # I2C adapter drivers modprobe i2c-i801 # Chip drivers modprobe eeprom # Warning: the required module coretemp is not currently installed # on your system. For status of 2.6 kernel ports check # [url="http://www.lm-sensors.org/wiki/Devices"]http://www.lm-sensors.org/wiki/Devices[/url]. If driver is built # into the kernel, or unavailable, comment out the following line. modprobe coretemp # sleep 2 # optional /usr/local/bin/sensors -s # recommended #----cut here---- Looks like the coretemp module is missing from my kernel. A quick google search shows that I the 2.6.17 kernel version doesn't have the module. People have reported success with the latest kernel from cooker. This feature is not worth a kernel upgrade for me. :unsure:
  14. That command comes up empty. I had answered all the questions for sensors-detect program. Perhaps the configuration files have not been updated.
  15. I installed the lm_sensors package and it detected the chip as intel core 2. However, it didn't load any modules at the end, and the sensors command shows no sensors are installed and none of the i2c modules seem to be loaded. I will try again with the ksensors package next. Does this update /proc/acpi too? Thanks for the help.
