== List em please ==


Can someone do me a huge favor? please... i know you guys are nice in here and i would really appreciate it if you help me out.

Can someone please post the programs / patches / add-ons / plug-ins that i need for redhat to play mp3 files, go online through aol in RH. Also any other cool little programs and stuff that Redhat has to offer? and also please post the links to the download?

Thanks.... i tried to do it myself and i got a bad copy of xmss and messed up my whole rh installation.

Thanks again in advance and this means alot to me. i dont get online alot and i want it all on cd's so i can mess with redhat and learn everything i can...

there are lot of threads that have addressed this ;

quicky : mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows (/mnt/windows should exist)

(assume hda1 is your xp drive , replace it with appropriate one)

one more thing : read trickykids footnote , i am sure it will help you .....

i think more specifically, you need to go here and install this xmms package to play mp3s

for your winxp, go here and download/install the ntfs drivers matching your version of redhat and the kernel version your running.

http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/info/redhat.html#down

is windows xp on the first partition of your hard drive? i'm going to assume it is. open up a shell terminal. type these commands in order exactly as posted for mounting your windows partition (remember to install the ntfs driver rpm first!):

1. su
2. mkdir /mnt/c
3. kwrite /etc/fstab

now in fstab add this line:
/dev/hda1 /mnt/c ntfs auto,owner,ro, 0 0

save your changes

4. mount /dev/hda1

you may or may not have to create a desktop icon. depends. if you do use the device block label. in this example, it's /dev/hda1

if you're not using ntfs for you windows partition and are using fat32, skip the downloading and installing of the ntfs driver and proceed to the commands. in fstab, change ntfs to vfat

cool thanks... now one question.. shel term is like cmd right?

thats where i type everything pretty much?

yes my xp is my first partition... messing these steps up wont fuck up my xp installation will it? i can not lose my shit on here.
too much money and its not all backed up.

so after i do all this.... i can go to "home" folder and click on left and go to devices and browse my hd's?

cool thanks man...

any other programs or tips for me?

how exactly do i install rpm's? my RH crashed and i cant get back into it because of a faulty install. how can i recover it all without reinstalling?

you mean you can't boot into redhat right now? huh? you aren't going to do anything until you get back into redhat. try using your installation cds and booting into recovery mode.

i have no idea as i don't know the particulars of your system. but type first:

linux rescue

basically if this can help sort out your rh problem.
http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/l...mode-boot.html

it may also be more cost effective time-wise to just reinstall.
