Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Hello, I am posting this from lynx because it seems to be the only browser I have that supports cookies right now. I thought it was just a kde (konq) problem but mozilla and dillo aren't working either.
I was trying to sign into LQ and I logged in fine but as soon as I changed to a new page I was signed out again, so I can't post or do anything but read. I made sure that my cookies are on in konq but I got this usefull message:
"This control module cannot start the cookie server process, it will be impossible to manage cookies."
OK, so I deleted all my old cookies...restarted kde, no joy. I am at a loss for what to do. I know this is kind of a vague question, but does anyone have any idea what might be up? Keep in mind that cookies didn't work for mozilla or dillo either.
It's not my firewall though...because they are working fine in lynx.

I've had that problem with vB forums before. Do you remember changing an option in your Control Panel which read:
Browse board with cookies?
No it wasn't an upgrade. I don't have a clue what it was...the only thing I can think of is that I like to poke around in my ~/.kde/ directory and play with things, I probably pooched something in there. I think that kcookiejar handles those things, so I may have fuddled a setting.
I always use kde...and it seemed that all my X browsers stopped working...so I blame kde (and myself of course)
Even though I am tempted to say "I didn't do anything...it just stopped working" we all know that is rarely true.
It would seem like they are not being stored at all...
It isn't happening right now, but what happens is I have to login to LQ manually, but as soon as I change pages it logs me out instantly, that is, it doesn't log me out (ie: "thanks for logging out, bulliver", it just forgets me.
Hmm, if this only happens in X/KDE, I think you maybe turned on that KCookieJar deamon and it's interrupting all cookie actions, but it isnt running when out of X, so that's why Lynx works.
Which version of KDE do you have?
I dunno if the kcookiejar deamon would interfere, but you say the problem is only in X so it's either some difference between runlevels (if you arent just using startx), or it's the processes and deamons running in KDE. Are you running Mozilla via that soundwrapper thing?
I always boot into runlevel 3, and startx manually. Not sure what soundwrapper is?
I'm crossing my fingers, but it hasn't pooched in a couple of days now. When it does happen I have to logout then log back in, so it's not too bad. I am really thinking that it is a bug in kde. With the distro I use I recieve my updates from the 'current' repository, rather than the 'stable' one, so perhaps this is just the price you have to pay for being cutting edge
My menu entries for Mozilla have the command soundwrapper /usr/bin/mozilla, and the contents of /usr/bin/soundwrapper are:
if [ `/sbin/pidof -s artsd` ] ; then
if [ `/sbin/pidof -s esd` ]; then
So I'm wondering if starting your browser triggers starting sound deamons and services (artsd/esd) which could at the same time trigger other kde deamons and services (kcookiejard)... which is already sounding like a bug to me too
