Remote access to Linux desktop from Windows

Posted 08-01-2010 at 06:56 PM by paulsm4

I have a Centos 5.4 VPS - command-line only, no Linux desktop, no GUI.

No problem. I just set up VncServer, and I can now remote in to a complete, fully functional Linux desktop from Windows any time!

1. Install X VNC server and dependencies (root):
yum install vnc vnc-server
yum groupinstall xfce

2. Enable per-user login (user "mo"):

GCC: error: incompatible types when returning type ‘double (*)()’ but ‘double’ was expected

Posted 08-01-2010 at 06:06 PM by Kenny_Strawn (Kenny the one-teen comittee to stamp out Proprietary $uckware)

Can anyone please tell me what this error means and why I got it while trying to return the outputs of functions?

I decided to post this question in my blog instead of the programming forum, because another member in that forum always responds to posts about compilation errors with vague, 'RTFM'-like responses. Thankfully, I can use my ignore list to ban Stashenko from this blog. Not so much for the programming forum.

So You Want to Surf Gopherspace

Anyone remember the Gopher protocol? I don't---at least, I don't remember it at its height. I first came across gopher in 1999, but only really started exploring it about five years ago, well after most nodes had been shuttered and their content moved to http. But even in its reduced form, there was a charm about gopher that drew me in, and which has taken root. And so, every so often, I wander through gopherspace, just to see what might be new, or old, or forgotten, or simply to enjoy the peace...

After X number of years, I still get very frustrated/disillusioned

Posted 08-01-2010 at 01:23 PM by bigjohn

This is a prime example of what annoys the hell out of me with "things linux".....

Damn I must have been using it for something like 8 years now, and no, I'm not a techie, I'm not even an enthusiast per se.

I'm one of those weirdo's, just an ordinary user.

When it works, it's absolutely fantastic, but when it doesn't, it's a total PITA!

For instance, I've been lured to the darkside (part A) and now use Ubuntu 10.04 - even managed...

Dell loosing the plot?

Posted 07-31-2010 at 03:41 PM by rich_c

Over the past week or so, I've seen a few things that would seriously put me off buying from Dell. Which is a shame, because a lot of my kit at home is Dell and it serves me quite well! The issues are:

Dell's been shipping server motherboards with malware 'pre-installed'. The other quality/customer service issue I've picked up on, on a smaller scale, is a colleague who paid for 24hr response support only to have the engineer that attended his borked laptop make it worse! Instead...
