  1. vodim - command not found. Since I fixed fstab I tried to mount my /media/cdrom0 as it's done in Debian. Nothing happens.
  2. I tried to burn a dvd .iso yesterday and k3b couldn't find my device. So I tried from command line and it also said it couldn't detect a burner. This is on my laptop and I don't think I've ever tried to burn anything with it before but it's only a year old and I don't think it's bad. Here are some things I checked. debian:/home/mystified# ls -la /dev/dvd lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 2007-06-11 14:56 /dev/dvd -> hdc debian:/home/mystified# dmesg | grep DVD hdc: PHILIPS CD-RW/DVD-ROM SCB5265, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive hdc: ATAPI 24X DVD-ROM CD-R/RW drive, 2048kB Cache, UDMA(33) Here's the interesting part. I tried to manually mount a data dvd and I got an error message that line 9 was bad. Here's my /etc/fstab # /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> proc /proc proc defaults 0 0 /dev/hda5 / reiserfs notail 0 1 /dev/hda7 /home reiserfs defaults 0 2 /dev/hda6 none swap sw 0 0 /dev/hdc /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0 /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows vfat auto,umask=o o o 0 Line 9 is my windows partition. So I tried to mount /mnt/windows and it said it didn't exist in fstab.
  3. That's not the correct link scarecrow. You can try here: http://club.mandriva.com/xwiki/bin/view/Main/ Mandriva 2007 Spring is the latest edition of Mandriva which why they shipped it I'm sure instead of Mandriva 2007. But you can always ask.
  4. Not me. I disable arts in kde. Tis very annoying.
  5. Solved. I got help on the Gentoo forum. It was a variety of problems. Why they occured I don't know. Thanks.
  6. Well it opens but I think I have an .htaccess problem. When I click on Statistics I get cannot open /etc/hosts.conf. When I click on settings I get: Error: Can't open upsset.conf to verify security settings. Refusing to start until this is fixed. I have .htaccess in cgi-bin with the following: <Files upsset.cgi> deny from all allow from </Files> In /etc/hosts.conf I have: MONITOR belkin@localhost "Local UPS" I also added this to httpd.conf. But I think I'm missing something somewhere. According to a nut developer you need this to secure your ups.
  7. I don't have anything that I know of that would be causing problems. I have cgi-bin in apache. These are my permissions: localhost log # ls -l /var/www/localhost/cgi-bin/nut total 629 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 530156 May 11 16:18 htsearch -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 268 May 11 16:18 printenv -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 757 May 11 16:18 test-cgi -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 29120 Jun 1 16:27 upsimage.cgi -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 33024 Jun 1 16:27 upsset.cgi -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 32064 Jun 1 16:28 upsstats.cgi localhost log # ls -l /var/www/localhost/htdocs/nut total 16 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 62 May 11 16:13 bottom.html -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 623 May 11 16:14 header.html -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 503 May 11 16:14 index.html -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2750 May 11 16:14 nut-banner.png apache error_log says [Sat Jun 02 10:51:39 2007] [error] [client] Directory index forbidden by rule: /var/www/localhost/htdocs/nut/ I haven't found anything in htdocs or nut that would interfere.
  8. My document root is /var/www/localhost/htdocs/ Which contains nut and forum
  9. I have nut, my ups monitor set up so I can access it via localhost/nut. My Document root setting is /var/www/localhost/htdocs inside this I have forum, which is my test copy of the board and nut. But when I try to access localhost/nut I get access denied. I don't understand why it works for forum and not for nut. I also have cgi set in httpd.conf because nut uses cgi-bin. Any suggestions?
  10. I want to make sure that if something happens with my harddrive I can use the new one, change the mount points and be able to boot directly into it. It's taken me way too much time getting everything set up on gentoo. I have a fully working, apache, mysql, php server and a DNS server. I really don't want to go through all that again!
  11. Thanks grandson. I'll ignore the old comments :P and try a usb mouse.
  12. I have a problem with my mouse and I can't blame it on kde, Mandriva or Debian because it also happens in Windows. Acer Tech Support told me how to fix it in windows but I haven't tried because I haven't booted into windows in ages. This is what happens, when I click on something like a browser icon it will open up more than one instance of the browser. If I'm typing it will jump around the page but this seems to only happen in OO.org. If I move my mouse across something like My Controls it will automatically go there. Anybody have any ideas. It really is annoying. Thanks!
  13. Well I found this external hd which is not SATA http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16822136022 But I still don't know how to backup. And I have no idea what I'll do with 250GBs. My current drive is only 80GBs and I have plenty of room left. I'm still not sure how to backup data. Is it just a matter of partitioning the new hd and then cp -R each partition onto the new one?
  14. My HD is almost six years old. I have no problems with it but I don't want it to fail so I want to buy another HD and backup regularly. My question is how do I do this? Also, I'm looking at this hd http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16822148142 but I don't understand the SATA part. It's been ages since I bought a new HD! Thanks!
  15. That has to be my favorite geek movie of all time. If you look at the computer in one of the first scenes they're using linux and gnome. It's all prochoice open software.
  16. They've already said they're going to need translators for their wiki. I used to be a contractor for a .com that was out of California. For the most part I worked out of my house on the internet. I did do a 2 1/2 month job in Miami. It was nice cause I got paid California wages. I was really sad when they closed down that division and I lost my contract.
  17. I suggest we set up a new Forum called Beer. Then you guys can discuss away. :P
  18. Is there any topic where you guys can't bring beer into it? :P
  19. I don't know. I just thought it was really tedious. Copy and pasting from the LFS manual and then having to sit and wait for things to comple and then move onto the next one. The manual is pretty thorough as to what you need. As far as Gentoo goes I don't think I'm an above average user (thank you SoulSe :)) I just like researching and problem solving. And I get to do that with gentoo and probably other advanced linux distros as tyme says. I just happen to use Gentoo. Gentoo really isn't that hard to install or use, it's just that when you run into a problem it's really complex and you have to dig for answers. But Gentoo is so well documented that you can find a lot of answers with Google and then the Gentoo Forums hold a tremendous wealth of information and I can find answers through searching a lot of times and then posting if I can't. That's how I happened to luck out and find a NUT developer who happens to be a Gentoo user. Without him, I'd never have gotten anything done.
  20. paul isn't just a geek. He's a guru. ;)
  21. I did a lfs install one time. Never again. Gentoo is fun. lfs sucks.
  22. Well I put paragraphs in there just for you. :P
  23. When I did my Debian install (I think) when it came to the boot loader it asked me if I wanted to put it on /dev/hda, the MBR. There is a /dev/hda but it's certainly not one of the partitions. I don't try and figure it out as long as the distro does.
  24. That's true. I don't know if you read my other thread about trying to get my UPS working but because it's so new the driver isn't in any linux packages. So the developer helped me download the parts of the driver that when compiled made the driver I needed. And all I had to do was take the tar.gz, untar it, add the files to the drivers folder, put it back and compile.
