Question My big linux issues


1.) winex compiled fine and installed, said good luck and all that so it seemed to be fine until I try to run my wc3 installer and get this:


fixme:ttydrv:TTYDRV_BITMAP_SetDIBits (0x4038d1d8, 0x4038d050, 0, 32, 0x408734f4, 0x4038d1a0, 0, 0x0054): stub
fixme:ttydrv:TTYDRV_BITMAP_SetDIBits (0x4038d218, 0x4038d050, 0, 32, 0x40873574, 0x4038d1a0, 0, 0x0058): stub
fixme:ttydrv:TTYDRV_BITMAP_SetDIBits (0x4038d49c, 0x4038d050, 0, 32, 0x40873634, 0x4038d464, 0, 0x005c): stub
fixme:ttydrv:TTYDRV_BITMAP_SetDIBits (0x4038d4dc, 0x4038d050, 0, 32, 0x408736b4, 0x4038d464, 0, 0x0060): stub
fixme:ttydrv:TTYDRV_BITMAP_SetDIBits (0x4038d7ac, 0x4038d050, 0, 11, 0x40875070, 0x4038d774, 0, 0x0068): stub
fixme:ttydrv:TTYDRV_BITMAP_SetDIBits (0x4038d85c, 0x4038d050, 0, 18, 0x40876048, 0x4038d7ec, 0, 0x006c): stub
Segmentation fault


Anyone know WTH that is and how to fix it?

2.) I need to change my root password as during the install it somehow skipped that step and I'm left with a blank root password, all of my attempts to change it have failed (logging in as root and changing, using su and passwd, using su - root, and passwd). This one is pretty vital obviously any help would be appreciated heres the error I get in the console trying to do it:

passwd: User not known to the underlying authentication module

3.) in apache I try to specify a directory under my user file folder as the docroot and it gives me a 403 forbidden error. I wanted to run it on my local space so that I could move files to it without having to use the console and su and cp every time. Maybe I'm just more of an apache noob than i thought =P

Help on any of these would be appreciated greatly thanks much,
Scott

as far as the root password. if u are using kde goto kmenu/ system settings/ root password if it isn't letting u do it from the prompt, try that. mandrake has a bunch of issues as far as i am concerned. the other ones i can't help, sorry.

I think it does not understand how to convert Windows to X Window server drawing schemes. Did you try running programs like notepad, wordpad, calculator, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, etc. You may want to try copying some dlls from your Windows system to your LINUX system. Do not do this while Windows is running because Windows use many dll files while it running. There is Bart PE to do this.

Easy during the count down of the boot loader. Type linux single or linux 1. Then type passwd. It should not ask for your root password. Then you can type in a password. Do not expect to see mask stars for each character you type in. Type reboot and your system should boot. Next you can login as root to change somethings or run dd to zero out your windows partitions.

Apache is a web server not a FTP server. Use ssh. It has both a secured telnet and secured ftp. Also your html files and the directory that you want Apache to read, have to have permission so that all other users can read the directory and file. KDE has a feature to login to a ssh server so you can upload and down files. You have to type in sftp in the address bar of Konqueror. For Windows, there is Secure Shell Client. Go to http://www.ssh.com. Find a link that says non-commerical. Read the agreement.
