  1. I love having multiple desktops... it is like having 4 different monitors./..(well not really but it is close enough) :) But... ya, you should try using them at some point... you will grow to love them...
  2. Well i dont know if it said it on the box but, from the HP website i just got my HP office jet 7210 networked printer working as a networked printer and scanner using an hp-toolbox program.... I can scan items to xsane from my printer which "has" to be on the otherside of the house.... But it works great... i dont even think that it is possible to scan over the network in windows.... Lz, good luck with COX..... ive had problems with them since the getgo...
  3. My music and pictures server, My shared network storage server, sheet music editor, etc....
  4. Jees... how do yall keep your computers on for so long.... i am sometimes scared to leave it on for more than 3 days in a row!!!! lol..... but Gentoo all the way!!!!
  5. yes, i did emerge -C ndiswrapper that got rid of it then i emerged it again
  6. ok so i had trouble getting the thing to compile (emerge).... but... i did, (i had to reccompile my kernel, changing a few options) so i did and it compiled fine.... so i try to do ndiswrapper -i: david david # ndiswrapper -i /home/david/wmp54g_eu_driver/Drivers/bcmwl5.inf Installing bcmwl5 Forcing parameter IBSSGMode|0 to IBSSGMode|2 Forcing parameter IBSSGMode|0 to IBSSGMode|2 Forcing parameter IBSSGMode|0 to IBSSGMode|2 Forcing parameter IBSSGMode|0 to IBSSGMode|2 david david # dmesg . . . ndiswrapper: disagrees about version of symbol struct_module ndiswrapper version 1.5 loaded (preempt=yes,smp=no) ndiswrapper (wrapper_init:1830): loadndiswrapper failed (1792); check system log for messages from 'loadndisdriver' ndiswrapper (wrapper_init:1837): ndiswrapper: initialization failed ndiswrapper version 1.5 loaded (preempt=yes,smp=no) david david # now i dont know if some of those entrys are from where before i had issues getting it to modprobe..... (befor i recompiled my kernel) and i dont know what all that stuff about Forcing paramater is,.... but here is some more information david david # lspci 02:0e.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.

  7. ya, every thing worked, the only thing is that i could not get my wireless card to work... but other than that, everything was fine...
  8. ok actually the day that you put it on kazaa i got a friend to download it for me.... it is nice, i like the chem programs
  9. is there any other way for me to get this iso... i do not use kazza.... or p2p stuff (my own reasons),.... i would really like to try this ( i am an AP chem student and i think that it could be useful...)
  10. i would like to try this.... how would i get an iso from you??? also one suggestion, if you havent already done it... knoppix includes a great ndiswrapper utility in its live cd wich allows you to set up your wireless card if you need it.... i think that that would be a great addition to any live distro....
  11. well, iwould do rpm -qa | grep pyhon this will output he exact name of the rpm for python that is installed.... then rpm -ev --nodeps thenthenameof.therpm.file that will remove that rpm with out dependencies but if you are using mandrake then urpmi will automatically update python to the newest version that is in your sources.... just do urpmi python and it will install a newer version if it exists...
  12. try this.... it seemed to help when i had the same problem. when i did urpmi kernel-source it gave me a diff version that the kernel that i had.... i had to specifically say "urpmi kernel-source-2.6" and then everything worked.... oh, and fully specify the path to the driver and the name, ie, ndiswrapper -i /home/txwylde/driver.inf
  13. make sure that you have entered you DNS servers (you can find those on your router's status page) and your gateway (which is the ip address of your router)... after it says connected, try opening your router's web utility by typing it's ip address into the addressbar of your browser...
  14. Fixed, in ifcfg-wlan0 change line: key="open thenmykeygoesherewithoutthes:"
  15. i see, i could possible change this line,,, key="open s:myencryptionkey"
  16. no, i have already created a ifcfg script, i just either need to know what line to add to is or how to add that line to some command script.... in my ifcfg script i already have a line that says "key=thenmyencryptionkeyhere" i mean i dont know do i add a line to the script that says SECURITYMODE=open ?
  17. ok i have everything set up for my wireless card and infact i am using it right now... but the only problem us that when i boot up i have to specify the command iwconfig wlan0 key open after i do that i am able to connect and everything works fine...but untill then i have no connection at all... per the suggestion of Liquidzoo i have added the line iwconfig wlan0 key open to the end of rc.local but this has not solved the problem, any ideas? btw here is my boot order (if that is helpful?) [david@localhost david]$ ls /etc/rc3.d/ K09dm@ S01udev@ S12syslog@ S18sound@ S25netfs@ S55ntpd@ S85numlock@ K59dund@ S05harddrake@ S13partmon@ S20xfs@ S30upsd@ S56rawdevices@ S90crond@ K59hidd@ S10network@ S15cups@ S24messagebus@ S31upsmon@ S56xinetd@ S95kheader@ K59pand@ S11portmap@ S17alsa@ S25bluetooth@ S40atd@ S75keytable@ S99local@ [david@localhost david]$ in short, i need to automate the command "iwconfig wlan0 key open" i have to type iwconfig wlan0 key open to get the wirelesscard to connect to the network, apperantly my network is no longer restricted since i got my new router, is there a way to automate this command?
  18. dowloaded the real one from fedora, then rpm -ev --nodeps yum, thin rpm -ihv yum :D

  20. well i figured out that it is port 515 TCP that i am supposed to open up.... i tried to do that and it didnt work. so i tried installing shorewall to configure iptables, but i didnt understand that, so i uninstalled that and then i installed firestarter. i set the ip addresses of the printservers to be trusted and to allow all incoming connections from it. i also set the outgoing to be permissive by default... still not working....
  21. all sould be... i dont know what brand i have but it works...
