NTP Server and Client Configuration in debian

Posted 10-03-2007 at 04:37 AM by sridhar11

The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is a protocol for synchronizing the clocks of computer systems over packet-switched, variable-latency data networks. NTP uses UDP port 123 as its transport layer. It is designed particularly to resist the effects of variable latency (Jitter).

How to create a transparent terminal session as your desktop background

Posted 10-03-2007 at 04:37 AM by sridhar11

This technique - utilizing devilspie - will create a transparent terminal session on your desktop that will remain for the duration of your login (unless you exit the terminal session for some reason) This particular how-to addresses Ubuntu specifically, but Iíve done this successfully in 3 or 4 distributions.

Why is Mplayer and Xine the only working Video Players?

Posted 10-02-2007 at 04:07 PM by Chargh

I have had lots of troubles getting good video players for Linux. The one Fedora comes with Totem, works great at playing Ogg Vorbis Video, but all other file types it cant play. Then I tried Helix Player, but I could not get it to play anything.

recovery with sBackup

Posted 10-02-2007 at 09:00 AM by jwillar

I have been using sBackup on Kubuntu 7.04 (placing the data on a local NAS drive) for a while. I have even been able to recover data using the recovery tool. Then my system crashed and I had to reinstall the OS. Now when I go to recover my data using sBackup, it errors out and will not allow me to see/access my data. Have I screwed up when I reistalled the OS? Is there still a way to acess my data within the compressed files?
