Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

http://www.linuxquestions.org/rules.php

You posted pretty much the same question in Linux - General. Do not start the same conversation in more than one forum please. Its against the rules and causes confusion that is unecessary.

Regards.

Let's keep this in the other thread as this one will be closed since its a double post. If you knew the rules, why did you insist on starting the subject and topic in another forum? Don't double post.

And I do have a answer to your question most likely but this has been asked so many times, you should try searching first, you'll probably find the answer that way before even having to ask here.

Regards.

PS. Again, don't start discussions in multiple places around the forum. This is a busy forum, if you don't recieve a reply to your questions within about 24 hours, feel free to bump the existing thread, but don't start new ones. Also you have to consider this is a free forum, there might be a good chance you might never recieve an answer to a question you may have. Now reply to the other existing thread if you need to respond or wait for an answer there. Thanks.

I don't understand this really. They run off for getting caught breaking a rule. Some just take things too personal.

Advice for others who break a rule and its brought to attention: Don't take it personal, just move on and ask your questions if you have them. No need to run off crying about it really asking to delete your posts, etc. Geez....
