  1. By default, your system should be set up to use your install medium for an install source. Just go to your menu and choose Configure Your Computer, enter your root password and go to Software Management -> Look at an install installable packages. You will be able to find and install apache and php there.
  2. Unfortunately, my video stops at the end of the Voyeur commercial still.
  3. Could you please demonstrate where libphp5.so is specified in the httpd.conf file? You are making this more difficult than it has to be. There is no need to compile anything. Everything you need to get php5 running on apache in Mandriva can be installed through rpmdrake (Software Management in Mandriva Control Center). If you have somehow installed apache and/or php5 through a tar.gz, then it may have put things in your httpd.conf that do not need to be there. This is what I have installed on a working config: [root@localhost ohms]# rpm -qa | grep apache apache-modules-2.2.4-6.2mdv2007.1 apache-conf-2.2.4-4mdv2007.1 apache-mpm-prefork-2.2.4-6.2mdv2007.1 apache-devel-2.2.4-6.2mdv2007.1 apache-base-2.2.4-6.2mdv2007.1 apache-mod_php-5.2.1-4mdv2007.1 [root@localhost ohms]# rpm -qa | grep php php-hash-5.2.1-1mdv2007.1 php-openssl-5.2.1-4.2mdv2007.1 php-posix-5.2.1-1mdv2007.1 php-xmlreader-5.2.1-1mdv2007.1 lib64php5_common5-5.2.1-4.2mdv2007.1 php-simplexml-5.2.1-1mdv2007.1 php-session-5.2.1-1mdv2007.1 php-gettext-5.2.1-1mdv2007.1 php-sysvshm-5.2.1-1mdv2007.1 php-ftp-5.2.1-1.1mdv2007.1 php-ctype-5.2.1-1mdv2007.1 php-sysvsem-5.2.1-1mdv2007.1 php-filter-5.2.1-0.1mdv2007.1 php-gd-5.2.1-1mdv2007.1 php-ini-5.2.1-2mdv2007.1 php-tokenizer-5.2.1-1mdv2007.1 php-zlib-5.2.1-4.2mdv2007.1 php-timezonedb-2007.3-1mdv2007.1 php-xmlwriter-5.2.1-1mdv2007.1 php-json-1.2.1-3mdv2007.1 php-suhosin-0.9.18-4mdv2007.1 apache-mod_php-5.2.1-4mdv2007.1 Of course, some of those php pkgs may be superfluous to your needs.
  4. I take comfort in the fact that the advertisement plays. That should mean the plugin is working. Why it stops, I have no idea. Maybe there is some method the plugin calls that is not supported in the Linux version. Hmmmm...I should start Firefox from a console and see if there are any errors. BRB. I got this over and over: Flash Player: Warning: environment variable G_FILENAME_ENCODING is set and is not UTF-8 So, I stopped Firefox and did export G_FILENAME_ENCODING="UTF-8" and didn't get the warning, but the video still stops.
  5. Same here. The video plays the commercial, but then the slider just stops and the video screen stays at the last frame of the commercial. If it helps, I am using 2007 Spring 64 Bit, but had to install Firefox 32 bit in order to view flash, because Adobe doesn't do a 64 bit version for Linux (and also because Java apparently only works in 32 bit, too).
  6. Pardon the semi-hijack, but I seem to only be able to find an exe for Money Manager Ex even though it claims to be cross-platform.
  7. Heh. I'm kinda/sorta going to say use a hosting company. I never could figure out Bind and all that, so I went to no-ip.com and paid a little for their non-free package where they point your domain name to whatever ip you need it pointed to. For free, they will do one for vampyregeek.no-ip.com too. :D
  8. This was the part I found most amusing: I'm running Mandriva 2007 Spring or whatever it's called. All my hardware is recognized except my *gasp* winmodem. Windows XP doesn't work well with half of it. I develop on XP and couldn't tell you the number of times I have to reboot or restart my IDE because it's locked up. (Let's not even discuss Windows ME...or 2000). And for the math-impaired: From http://www.w3counter.com/globalstats.php?date=2007-05-20 (the site the OP pointed out): 1 Windows XP 84.47% 2 Windows 2000 4.28% 4 Windows Vista 1.94% 5 Windows 98 1.55% 7 Windows 2003 0.67% 8 Windows ME 0.52% 9 Windows NT 0.07% ---------------------------------- 84.47% + 4.28% + 1.94% + 1.55% + 0.67% + 0.52% + 0.07% = 93.5% to be fair. And most of that (84.47%) is what came installed on their computer and they are too lazy (or don't even know how) to install something else.
  9. I'm using Windows XP on my laptop now because of work and school. It is already set for this change. I did nothing more than have Automatic updates turned on. I did nothing consciously. I just tested by moving my clock forward till 1:59 tomorrow morning and it set.
  10. Through other means? Could you post the solution here for others or state that you decided not to do it this way (abandoned it)?
  11. In Opera 9.2, I can see the "shi" character just fine on the site (http://www.csse.monash.edu.au/blahblah, not meaning your image :P) Do you have your encoding set to "Automatic Selection" under View -> Encoding? If the font displays fine in Firefox and Konqueror, this would be the first thing I would check. (Also, apparently, it is just the bold character that does not show in yours, because several lines below it appears to be there, but not in bold....I can see even the bold character in mine.) Is this the only character, is it random, or is it several characters?
  12. On the main rpmdrake window, you can choose File -> Reset selection and it unchecks everything.
  13. If you can boot LE2005, and you used it to install grub, then it needs to know about the 2006 install. Make sure you have an entry in /etc/fstab for your 2006 boot partition (wherever /boot/blah is), something like /dev/hda7 /mnt/mdk2006 blahblah and then your grub's menu.lst entry would be: title linux Mdk2006 kernel (hd0,5)/mnt/hda7/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.12-12mdk root=/dev/hda7 initrd (hd0,5)/mnt/hda7/boot/initrd.img This is all done inside whichever one controls grub (I assume LE2005). Technically, also LE2005(copy)'s entry should use a similar structure to 2006's entry. It (LE2005(copy)) can boot, because technically it is using the kernel that is located in your LE2005's installation, but you really should point it to its own installation's kernel. I'm kinda new with grub, but I think you then need to do grub-install /dev/hda after editing.
  14. Do you see anything with the command lsusb run as root from a console? Have you tried this in Gnome instead of KDE? My usb devices no longer automount under KDE, but work fine under Gnome (I haven't checked to see if I get any errors). Also make sure that she has her BIOS set to "PnP OS = No"
  15. Well, it kinda makes sense, but I still think Windows will somehow learn to monopolize still. Welcome back, SilverSurfer60!
  16. what kernel are you using, aioshin? ohms@laptop:~$ uname -r 2.6.17-5mdv ohms@laptop:~$ cat /proc/filesystems nodev sysfs nodev rootfs nodev bdev nodev proc nodev debugfs nodev sockfs nodev pipefs nodev futexfs nodev tmpfs nodev inotifyfs nodev eventpollfs nodev devpts ext2 cramfs nodev ramfs nodev hugetlbfs nodev mqueue ext3 nodev usbfs vfat nodev binfmt_misc nodev smbfs
  17. I added two rules to my /etc/udev/rules.d/70-hotplug_map.rules file: SUBSYSTEM=="usb_device", ACTION=="add", SYSFS{idVendor}=="0781", SYSFS{idProduct}=="7411", RUN+="/home/ohms/bin/thumb" SUBSYSTEM=="usb_device", ACTION=="remove", SYSFS{idVendor}=="0781", SYSFS{idProduct}=="7411", RUN+="/home/ohms/bin/remove" The problem is it runs the ACTION=="add" but not the ACTION=="remove" script. How exactly can I run a script when I attach my mp3 player and a different script when I remove it? Solution: Instead of using /etc/udev/rules.d/70-hotplug_map.rules, use /etc/udev/rules.d/60-dynamic.rules and instead of SUBSYSTEM=="usb_device", ACTION=="add", SYSFS{idVendor}=="0781", SYSFS{idProduct}=="7411", RUN+="/home/ohms/bin/thumb" SUBSYSTEM=="usb_device", ACTION=="remove", SYSFS{idVendor}=="0781", SYSFS{idProduct}=="7411", RUN+="/home/ohms/bin/remove" I had to use: KERNEL=="sda[0-9]*", ACTION=="add", RUN+="/home/ohms/bin/thumb" KERNEL=="sda[0-9]*", ACTION=="remove", RUN+="/home/ohms/bin/remove" I wish I could do it with SYSFS{blech} though, so it would be specific to my mp3 player and not just any thumb drive.
  18. This poses one problem I can see right away: Easy implementation of viruses and trojans.
  19. So, what is the fork called? Or is RPM the fork and no work continued on it from RedHat?
  20. Wow. I was trying to figure this out for awhile. Thanks, guys.
  21. I beg to differ. I used TeamSpeak with my friends playing NWN constantly. I even hosted both the game and the TS server...on Linux.
  22. Don't put them here: /usr/local/lib/codecs/ put them here: /usr/lib/codecs/ (If mplayer still does not see them, try putting them in the top-level directory of just /usr/lib) Mandriva does not use /usr/local/whatever, it uses /usr/whatever If you ever install something from source in Mandriva, make sure that when you run ./configure, you run it with at least this option: ./configure --prefix=/usr (the default will be /usr/local). If you don't understand this now, you will understand it as you gain experience.
  23. I, and many others, try to be as detailed as possible when I answer questions (but thanks to starting school again and work, I've been rather busy and haven't had time to help much). We've often been yelled at for 'talking down' to someone, so we tend to take a middle-of-the-road approach...not too technical and not too 'step-by-step'. When you post your question, just say something like "Please be detailed because I have no clue about many things in Linux. Don't be afraid that you'll be talking down to me." Maybe not exactly that, but enough for us to know that we have to say things like "Open a console (the little tv-screen-looking thing in the taskbar if you are using KDE desktop)..." We would love to give you the detailed help you need without you having to come back several times and ask us to explain it in more detail....less frustrating for you.
  24. His wife and kids have been found alive. They were stranded in their car in the snow and he went off to find help. He is still missing. http://www.cnn.com/2006/US/12/04/missing.f...y.ap/index.html
