    I am a fish?
  1. msn minesweeper? thats a quality time wasting game...
  2. As for Q1/ Nautilus enables you to browse networks -> select the "Network" (I think its called..) option, and then do as.. You will still need the samba client installed, but that should be it. If you want Nautilus to act as an "explorer" rather than just show the current folder (i.e. have a directory tree on the left h/s, look at this
  3. Fedora Fedora Fedora (Thats Fedora Core 3...) I'm running solely Core 2 now, having binned Mandrake. Fedora is so fast, smart and clean for me, and soo damned easy to work with... even more Gnome is the default dm, so its been well setup within Fedora, and I love Gnome :D - makes KDE look too horibly clunky :P So in conclusion, Fedora I think, and seeing as I use it now instead of Mandrake...
  4. Alternatively, look into bash / shell scripting and make your own script to do it..
  5. The issue is as stated above, the resolution that is passed out by the card. I cheated when I sorted it on mine, and loaded windows to see what the optimum setting was via NVidia's control center - one advantage winblows has still is that for refresh and res changes, you don't have to restart the X server and start all over again.. I found the NVidia stuff about gettting TV out also, so look here: http://www.sorgonet.com/linux/nv-online/ --> I forget who sent me the link, but its hidden on this board somewhere...
  6. Does anyone know what I need to do inorder to pusuade Firefox and Amazon to communicate on their secure servers? I have TLS, SSL (both versions) all enabled, yet when I try to process an order I get told "Firefox and Amazon can't communicate because they have no common security protocols". Konquerer can however do so... suggestions on a postcard please... [moved from Software by spinynorman]
  7. ftp://people.redhat.com/ckloiber/mkdvdiso.sh Roll your own DVD isos using this script. Get the latest CD isos into one directory, then run: #mkdvdiso.sh /path/to/the/cd/isos /location/and/name/of/dvd.iso #growisofs -Z /dev/scd0=/location/and/name/of/dvd.iso A script for Fedora that allows you to just get the CD ISO's and re-make them as one DVD ISO... like I did. Saves on spending ages on getting the actual DVD ISO, which I always had problems with (would only get half way through..)
  8. Intersting.. I'm using FC2, and have plugged it into my tv too.. what I found odd was that at CLI it runs through the telly using my normal Xorg.conf but using X it goes to the monitor. There is an article at fedoranews.org regarding setting up monitor & tv out with FC and Xorg, I suggest you read it... when I get home tonight I'll dig out my xorg.conf for you... I have two - one for tv out when I want to watch me dvd's, and one normal "default"
  9. javascript login check is crap if you want to use encrypted passwords. - You need to give the passwords to the client to validate against what the entered. This doesn't matter if its not the most important thing int the world, but bear in mind it would be quite simple to hack. PHP would be a much more elegant approach, and you can either use the html authentification system, or use a mysql server holding some users and passwords. Then just compare the text-field username and password field password against the database entries..
  10. Wander around the house with the laptop? is that wise? surely uou should be not letting her near technology so she can get on with cooking your tea, washing up etc... Sorry
  11. NTL, just like Telewest don't have a Linux (or even Unix) skilled workforce, thus they refuse to support the relevant OS'.. There is however no issue with the services - just plug the modem into your NIC, and set the NIC to DHCP... that is about it. The reason there is a windows CD is cause windows seems to need more drivers, and they install their own "help" and "diagnostics" programs - which you don't really need...
  12. Saphrone, I'll get back to you this evening with regard this - I'll be back on my Fedora box then (rather than the WinNT they make me use at work :( ) and I can check what I have. However, if JBoss has an entry begining with S in both rc.d/rc5. and rc3 then it should work fine.
  13. OK... what you need to do is actually add an entry to rc.d/ run level you want it to run at. I can't walk you through this right now, but someone else here might be able to, otherwise I believe its available in the tutorials. Basically, you need to add K (kill) files for the service to all runlevels you don't want the service to run at (say 0 (halt..) and S (start) to all runlevels you want it to run at - such as 3 (CLI) and 5 (GUI). If you also add a script to init.d you can use "service jboss start / stop". I'll try and write how you do this for you on sunday / monday, otherwise have a look through the tutorials, there should be one about manual rc.d and init.d scripts. Otherwise, take a look at the files in /etc/rc.d/rc.3, rc.5 and rc.0 and copy them making your own changes. Also look in /etc/init.d and do the same there. This really is the best way to do it I'm afraid...
  14. I'm confused because my understanding of JBoss from what I've done, is that you simply start JBoss as a service, and then you ensure that the application you wish to deploy is within the deploy folder of JBoss. That really "should" be all you need to do. I don't understand why you want to start the application as a second service - if you have more than one, just put it in a second folder within JBoss deployment folder, with the relevant jini settings etc within the application.. The idea with JBoss is that it has the application available, but doesn't load it until someone requestes it (thus keeping it out of memory and wasting space). Therefore to load it, you just need to go to the URL that you wrote in the jini file as belonging to the application. If the app isn't being used, JBoss will remove it from its memory and keep it sat in the background until its requested again. Therfore, in answer to the question, have JBoss running, "deploy" the application to JBoss, ensure it works. Add JBoss (and ONLY JBoss) as a service if you wish to start it automagically, sit back and enjoy.
  15. I believe you, but you never told me either! I found it at 0.6 (I think)... still on 0.9 in Linux (Fedora haven't released 1.0 yet, and I can't be bothered compiling, or risking things by going up to devel packages...) and 1.0 in windows (they make me use NT at work... could be worse I 'spose, some machines still have '95 on em!)
