That's probably the most insightful comment I've seen yet! Though it does go both ways doesn't it? I mean, usually the Linux app might do things "better" or "faster", but the learning curve tends to keep new users at bay.

Note: I'm referring to new users as those wanting to swap over from the Windoze platform. But it might equally well apply to Macsters.

Home and small business financial software, for the life of me I don't understand how to get gnucash to talk to my bank. Something plug and play like Quicken.

Guys pleas read the following page and don't forget to drop them a really positive email that's given at the bottom of the website. Thanks. Let them know you're willing to buy the product again if necessary to have a native Linux copy of your favorite valve game. Thanks

WinSCP but being able to use multiple key files to authenticate, since I yet to find a way of allowing me to gain access to my root account on my sever from my client software, it's truly annoying!

scp is native in Linux. Usually the root account is disabled for SSH, that might be the reason that you cannot login as root.

No it's not, depends entirely upon the user who admins the server.

That's illogical, essentially I am able to login to my servers root account if I login to my clients root account.

Just if I login to a user account like 'myuser' on my client, every time I attempt to login to my servers root access account I get a timed out error but can login to the equivalent (same user name) account on the server.

If I had SSH configured to stop root access logins using SSHD then I wouldn't be able to use my root account on my client to login to my root account on my server, it's the first part I'd like to get around that's annoying me a fair bit, because I don't like having to login to my root account on my desktop to have to login to my root account on my server.

But when thinking about it logically I bet it's some config problem somewhere, actually the reason for my time out is, when you have key authentication enabled (or rather the only method of logging in) you need to use your current users password then to gain access to a root user or another user on a remote computers passphase key, it has nothing to do with having SSH access blocked, in a networking sense, why would it send me back a prompt if it was blocked?

Apophysis 7x

Apophysis & Apophysis 7x the fractal generators that are in the software of Back Track 5 are of no real use.

Poser works fine in wine but since it uses python I would like to see it ported along with adobe cs 7 as gimp has limitations in ease of use gimp is ok but I like Adobe better more functionality with it. I tend to use both programs for whatever my needs are and it sucks to have to go back and forth in Windowsif I'm building for Linux I'm glad to see Maya has been ported.

FreeOTFE, please.

There is no Linux version, I've been looking for how to mount a volume created the normal way, and absolutely nobody on the internet seems to know.

Ported to Linux

I would like very much to see Turbo Tax ported to Linux. I dislike keeping one computer around to dual boot XP just to do my taxes. Usually the machine is only powered up once a year. I gues it may last forever that way, however!

It is true that root logins are not blocked by default in many distro's, but you are probably being foolish in the extreme to allow root logins under any circumstances. If you look at your Auth logs, you will undoubtedly see thousands of attempts by crackers to break into your server via ssh, and having root logins permitted really increases your risk. If you want some good advice, formally disable root-logins. When you need root access, login as yourself and then either use sudo on an application by application basis or bash your way into the root account using su. If you really care about security, you can also insist that all logins are by rsa/dsa key pairs by disabling password logins altogether - Just make sure that you put your public key on the server before you do so.

It is also odd that you are seeing some kind of time-out only on root logins. You could look at the log files to see what's happening. Also look in the ssh configuration files and see if there are any odd timeouts set. I hope that you haven't already been compromised and are now seeing the symptoms of some kind of denial of service.

Not sure what FreeOTFE is, but linux will mount almost any available file system. This is a standard feature of all linux distro's. Read about the mount command and /etc/fstab. Start with "man fstab" and "man mount". It's quite a load, but you will find a lot of answers there. You may also want to read about the loop device (google it - there's a nice article on Wikipedia). If you only need a way to mount CD or DVD images, most modern distro's will mount standard iso files directly from the GUI (Right click on the file name and select the mount option).

Hope this helps.
