change Redhat timout


Greetings-

I am new to Linux, having grown tired of trying to keep my PC running smoothly w/ Microsoft Windows. I have installed Redhat Fedora 8 and evrything except modem (Intel 536EP Data/Fax)is working nicely.

I have two questions, first why cant I run the LSPCI command from a shell, even when logged in as a Super user? Second, how can I change the time out when my computer is inactive? I am the only one who uses it & I have to re-log in all the time. I would like to reset it to maybe 10 - 15 minutes.

As long as I am at it- anybody have any success getting this kind of modem to work w/ Linux? I am just beginning to explore the web for this fix.

Thanks for your time people.

Gary

re: lspci
it is likely that it is not in your $PATH. You should be able to call it by absolute path (/sbin/lspci) to confirm this.

If you 'su' instead of 'su -' you won't get root's $PATH.


Hope this helps.

Also, just in case you weren't aware, fyi Linux is case sensitive, so LSPCI will never work...
