Make sure you have the right dependencies installed before installing your lightbulb:
socket, switch, wiring, and electricity.

I know I should ask this in "lightbulb security" but

well...
I have a local area network of 100W and 75 W lightbulbs running Mandriva Lite 2009, and they connect to the grid using IP-Cop lite to prevent bad electrons, and everything runs smoothly inside except there is a streetlight out the front running windows.

What can I do about this annoying streetlight ?

apt-get install blackout-blinds

EDIT:-

for RPM based installations

rpm -i blackout-blinds.rpm

Please don't use words like urgent and help, it's only urgent to you since you have to wait so long to see the light. Try:
Code:
apt-get remove boot-filter energy-save-option
Kind regards,

Eric

Sorry, but the bulb is in the bathroom and I was bursting for a pee and couldn't see the toilet bowl and made a puddle on the floor and blamed it on the dog.
