Package Manager

Posted 03-08-2009 at 11:58 PM by marty5924

Hi I have an Acer Aspire One, running on Linux OS. When I go to add or remove software, my system starts to load, but doesn't complete its tasks, it just stays there searching, and I have to force it close as well. I am new to this operating system. If anyone can help me, understand how to make my package manager do its job, it would be greatly appreciate.

Making a Local Area File Server

Posted 03-08-2009 at 03:18 PM by Seph64 (Seph64's Lair)
Updated 03-08-2009 at 04:14 PM by Seph64 (changed post to be more of a progress report rather than a cry for help.)

Well I finally bought some Ram (1GB DDR 333) from newegg for my old computer (AMD AthlonXP 2400+ 120GB HDD, 40GB HDD). There's no need for an OS install since Gentoo is already installed. And there is a lot of data on the dead (as of now since it has no ram) computer that I value highly.

Would directories defined as SAMBA shares be sufficient enough for a Private File server?

Of course, I need to configure the system to be access from a different system for system upgrades...

Changes to Changes

Posted 03-08-2009 at 05:47 AM by brianL

Changed my mind about trying newer versions of previously tried distros (Ubuntu, Fedora, OpenSuse, etc). They didn't grab me then, so it's unlikely they will now. I'll keep using Debian, for the contrast it offers to Slackware. I will try Arch, Gentoo, and LFS + BLFS. And I still want a desktop with more all-round clout.

telnet into a device in /dev

If you're looking for something like a terminal program, you can fire up or install minicom. You'll have to set the baud rate, parity, etc., but that's worked for me in the past, for similar situations.
Thanks that seems to be working.

Web design.

Posted 03-07-2009 at 03:43 PM by nenpa8lo

Recently I have started to learn webdesign - and amount of languages that I have to gather is scarry. HTML, XML, PHP, JS next mySQL queries and also would be nice to know AJAX and.... That is enough. Why this could not be simpler? One language, one standard and lets keep moving.
