Completed 2 years at LQ! A note of thanks.

Posted 12-22-2005 at 08:06 PM by vharishankar

I just noticed that I had completed two years at LQ recently (2 years 5 days as of today).

It's been a long journey since I first installed a magazine distro based on RedHat 6.1 to now when I multi-boot 4 distros on my machine (Debian, Gentoo, Arch and Suse) and I have a laptop with Suse as well. Linux has become second nature now. I hardly ever use Windows at all.

I've also made a lot of friends on this forums, had a few flame wars here and there, picked up a few fights...

Newbie cannot even open the system! HELP!

Posted 12-22-2005 at 02:39 PM by Nelda Nolen

Hello, I am of course a newbie in the dark!
I purchased a nice computer at an auction, and have NO idea how to "get in to the OS, and it is password protected. I just want to get in and set up a new OS or at least learn how to use this new system! I am currently attending a vo-tech for computer repair and troubleshooting, but there is so little information about Linux...
I know how to set jumpers to reset bios in other OS's, but don't know if that will work in Linux...........sheesh,...

Debian Gateway/Firewall

Posted 12-22-2005 at 08:20 AM by MbowerARA

I am looking to build my own gateway/firewall using somthing like ClarkConnect or Smoothwall. I am a fan of Debian based distros and was wondering if there is one simular to those two that are Debian based. My other option is to build it from Debian, but I don't have any idea where to start (as far as what packages I need...other than DHCP). It will have to be able to be remotly managed as well (using ssh or some web based GUI). Any ideas?

Some interesting 'powercommands' in linux (i didnt know any of them)

Posted 12-22-2005 at 05:35 AM by carl0ski

I felt the need to read through a big book about Bash commands so far here are some of my favourites

Alias command : allows assigning a long line of commands to a short phrase (alias shortcut='lengthycommand')

bittorrent-curses --maxport 6666 --minport 7777 --maxuploadrate 10 (a pain in the but to type)
but 'bit' isnt

#alias bit='bittorrent-curses --maxport 6666 --minport 7777 --maxuploadrate 10'
#bit suse.torrent
is now the same...

Is it posible to have 2.4 & 2.6 in a single machine?

Posted 12-22-2005 at 12:58 AM by smsundar

I am Trying to install a 2.4 kernel in my 2.6 kernel machine.
I have down loaded kernel-2.4.22-1.2199.nptl.i686.rpm.
when i give my command rpm -ivh kernel-2.4.22-1.2199.nptl.i686.rpm
it says
warning: kernel-2.4.22-1.2199.nptl.i686.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 4f2a6fd2
error: Failed dependencies:
kernel < 0:2.6 conflicts with udev-039-8.FC3.i386

What is the prob and how to solve?
