Hello everyone..

Well... there is a new problem now..

The following lines were in the gurddog README file...

--------------------------------------------------------------
Guarddog generates a shell script at /etc/rc.firewall which
should be run at boot time.

* Mandrake Linux - runs /etc/rc.firewall at boot time by default
which is good. But most other distributions are not setup like
this. The firewall should be run before any network interfaces
are enabled.
* SuSE & Debian - can be setup to run the firewall at boot time
by appending the following lines to /sbin/init.d/boot.local for
SuSE and for Debian
use /etc/init.d/bootmisc.sh.

# Guarddog
if [ -r /etc/rc.firewall ]; then
. /etc/rc.firewall
fi

* Other Distributions - I expect that running the firewall
script at boottime on other Linux distributions follows similar
lines at SuSE above. Basically find a suitable boot script and
add some lines to execute the rc.firewall file if it exists.
--------------------------------------------------------

I did find the /etc/rc.firewall file but there is nothing that
resembles /sbin/init.d/boot.local file!!! in Slackware9.1.
So how do I make guarddog start at boot time??

Thanks

You could add the if...fi line to /etc/rc.d/rc.local.


Slackware's boot scripts can be found in /etc/rc.d/, and you can use them to control your services, for example:

Code:
/etc/rc.d/rc.ssh start   # start ssh (also done at boot time)
/etc/rc.d/rc.ssh stop  # stop the ssh service
The slackware scripts use a if [ -x ... ] line to run the script only if it has executable rights. In other words, you can disable serviced with the chmod command:

Code:
/etc/rc.d/rc.inetd stop
chmod -x /etc/rc.d/rc.inetd
chmod +x ... restores the executable permissions, thus allowing you the run the script again. (and it will run at a next reboot too)

Mplayer prob...libdvdread.so.3??

Hello everyone..

I am a newbie using Slackware9.1; I have just installed the package "mplayer-1.0pre3-i686-1rob.tgz" and here is my problem...

bash-2.05b$ gmplayer
gmplayer: error while loading shared libraries: libdvdread.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I googled around a bit but I am still confused, so I was hoping that maybe one of you guys could help :-)

Thanks in Advance

This means that you don't have a certain library installed.. the dvdread library Try to look for the dvdread library at linuxpackages.net

Something similar also happens in Windows when I miss a DLL.. The big difference is the fact that Windows calls these things DLL's, and we call them "shared libraries"

..you could have posted another topic though
