Are you a Linux Newbie? Fell off the Windows Ship Without a Paddle?

Posted 01-12-2006 at 05:05 AM by carl0ski

i just thought i'd make a quick list to aid in quickly understanding and feeling comfortable using Linux.
Since my favourite Distro is Mandriva , and i find it quite easy to learn.
I recommend it.

Ubuntu scp stall resolved

I asked on the Ubuntu forums about this, and yesterday received a fix suggestion that worked for me. The fix entails adding lines to /etc/sysctl.conf that change the default net and IPv4 behaviour, like so:
