    Oh No!!!

    Crossover I had to dig up an old DWMX Trial CD.

    Oh No!!!

    Just a follow up: It's better than anything else I've found for linux. But it's still not nearly as good as running under win. The directory system is screwy, many of the little features (niceties) don't work, and the balance is still kind of buggy. Bottom line, use it under Windows, especially if your making a living at it as it is simply not time-effective to try to use under linux. Bluefish or Quanta are what I have started using for small hand-code issues that come up a page at a time. Edit: It never did crash on me :)
  3. So if I set the samba usernames and passwords(in webmin or linux) to the Windows values it should work? That makes sense, except for the fact that the first win98 machine did not need this... Edit: tried syncing the usernames/password w/ the windows box, didn't work.
  4. Ok guys, here is the lay of the land: Linux box (server) running Mandrake 10 samba/webmin Various local PC's running Win98, Win2k and Winxp. One the Win2k boxes, browsing the "network neighborhood shows the server, upon opening it prompts for a username and password. Both win2k boxes can connect fine. On the win98 boxes, clicking on the server in network neighborhood brings up just a password prompt, no username. I was able to get one win98 box up by typing in her password, I guess it decides who the user is according to the password? The other win98 box was not so lucky, it just keeps prompting for password. The only difference between the two is that the 1st(working) boxes user was already there. I created the other and made sure passwords matched ect... WinXP. None working. Prompts for a username and password, none of which seem to work. Any ideas or suggestions? I've been dicking with this for two days after removing WIn95 from the original server
  5. It is the only computer named localhost.
  6. I set up samba in accordance w/ this page: http://static.kdenews.org/content/siddhuwa...rrier/20030610/ I can see the computer on the network as localhost, but when I try to connect I get "//Localhost is not accessible: a duplicate name exists on the network" I have specified a users Documents folder as one to be shared. What am I missing? Is there an easy way to do what I'm trying to do (like win) I have a LAN that is win based, I have this linux box that I would like use as a file server across the network. That's it. Thanks - Mike
  7. File Sharing across a lan only.
  8. Ok guys, I got the Aptiva working(slowly) It will be connected to a windows LAN, how can I set it up as a local server? ANy suggestions? Mike
  9. Just decided to reinstall since it was fresh anyway.
  10. OK, I found an old Aptiva and installed 10.0 on it. Everything went great until boot up, the resolution is too high 1028xwhatever. How can I reduce this via command line? When I type kde - it startts then crashed due to insufficient video memory to support the resolution. Mike
  11. If it's just a single project - Download the Dreamweaver trial, do it on Windows and be done with it. Is she trying to pass the class? Some of Frontpages code is horrific - then again Yahoo site builder and a free account will let her get an A in all likelyhood. From what I've seen, unless it is a web development class the teacher's expectations are pretty low ;)
  12. I saw that - but couldn't figure out how to install it....

    Oh No!!!

    I did a small site just now with it, it seemed fine barring the css handling of 04 (more hand coding). Installation was a breeze - it did install into the good ole C: drive, and all files are stored on some sort of virtual C: drive. When defining a site, you can not create a new folder - so the folder structure needs to be there. Previewing is fine - though KDE sees my default browser as Koqueror (which is fine with me). Other than that - the font is a bit different, but everything seems to work ok. No crashes yet :) Ammendment: I appears that previewing in the browser does not work... Probably a setting that needs to be tweaked. :huh:

    Oh No!!!

    Ha ha ha... It's alive!

    Remote Terminal

    Sweet!!! That was easier than I ever dreamed of. By SSH front ends you mean a GUI? Thanks!
  16. That would be the day that I finally had no use for Windows. :)
  17. Back in the old days, when using windows I would use putty to log in to my sites that had ssh. How do I do this w/ linux. I can't seem to find any way to do this with the regular terminal program... Mike
  18. Yes definitely a thanks to all here that helped out :) I think this linux thing might just work for me...
  19. Crossover does not support DWMX04. I upgraded from Ultra Dev to 04 - skipping regular old MX... Crossover supports MX. I can still boot up XPprof and use DW04 - looks like I'll need to.
  20. Too easy ;) From one of my personal sites, seems nice and clean so I've used it ever since.
  21. Two come to mind right away, Mambo and wcms. If you can install Fantastico on the server, it will make trial and error go a lot faster. Or, you could just set up a regular website. If you have access to DWMX04 I can walk you through it - otherwise I'm new to linux and haven't found a replacement program yet... The premise is to have an entry page that directs login to a test page. Upon verification via the db, users are directed to the main page. There they can update the db via form based input. This would only require one MySQL db, with as many tables as needed. Editing an entry get a little tricker, as you need to populate the forum prior to it loading. All of this is a walk in the park w/ DW - or if you are fluent in php/MySQL (not me) and can hand code the whole thing. That's about it. You can make as many pages as needed to call ot the db and display the content however you like, or have it sorted in a certain way. Mike
  22. It looks like the switch just might take :) I have a work around for all of my other windows based apps except these. I understand that Gimp is a decent replacement for PS? Fron what I've seen the learning curve is a bit steep and I don't seem to have the agility I have in PS. Is there anything better? As for DWMX, I have installed Crossover, but I can't seem to find a place to download Dreamweaver MX... I have a few older discs with trial versions on them I think, but the file structure is unusable so I'm told. Are there any native linux programs that even come close to DW?
  23. When setting up Mandrake, does anything special need to be done to support either hyper-threading or dual processors. When I look at system load, I see CPU usage. In Windows there are usually two or four panes of CPU usage, one for each processor, and another for each virtual if HT is turned on. What setting if any do I need to chage to support both processors, as well as their virtual counterparts? Also: is there a RAM limit? I only show just over 3GB, but 4Gb is installed...
  24. What am I thinking? I have integrated sound (DellPrecision 650)... That means there must be a solution.
