new to linux
during startup, linux checks for new hardware.
this process takes about 1 minute.
I was wondering how I could disable this feature to decrease
boot time. If new hardware is to be added, I could enable this feature manually.
oh and another thing:
the mandrake 9.1 distribution had an older version of Gaim.
I understood that there is a newer version, and one that is GTK2,
meaning with the nice fonts
I uninstalled the previous Gaim using the ordinary "package uninstall" option, but when I try do run the new gaim-0.68-1mdk9.1.i586.rpm,
it just says that everything is already installed.
or for a konsole transcript:
[mxz@HOME Downloads]$ rpm -Uvh gaim-0.68-1mdk9.1.i586.rpm
gaim-0.68-1mdk9.1.i586.rpm: read manifest failed: Success
thank you in advance for help
and please be tolerant
