manthram 05-12-2003 03:14 PM

last time i checked a program named "SAMBA" was really really good. :D

s9722 05-12-2003 03:16 PM

ok I will check it out

............umm looks really complicated...

That was cruel, manthram :D

s9722, I guess you want a peer to peer file sharing app, instead of something to help network local linux and windows pcs together.

s9722 05-12-2003 03:20 PM

how so ?

manthram 05-12-2003 03:23 PM

come on proud I was just telling him, no pun intended on my part;)

s9722 05-12-2003 03:38 PM

yep p2p I guess I should have been bad:(

manthram 05-12-2003 03:42 PM

kazaa works fine

s9722 05-12-2003 03:44 PM

ahh ok cool I can do kazza:)

hey I got a question

how do people get those really cool monitors on their desktops?

I got the crappy default ones and I dont knwo how to change them to the line graphs... ya know the panel monitors for the CPU and memory?

Proud 05-12-2003 03:44 PM

Search for a large list of the popular ones. I think if you have faster than a 56K you might be interested in BitTorrent.

Kazza is gay from all I've heard, at least try KazaaLite. Also, either would need Wine to run in linux, better to get something compiled for linux, not windows.

I have no p2p apps! Waiting for uni broadband connection first... ;)

Get GKrellm and some themes for a nice monitoring app. :cool:

xcpustate is a good cpu monitor. download the rpm and install it

s9722 05-12-2003 03:48 PM

ok I will try it

but I doubt it will work... I cant seem to get anythign installed not even the new galeon.... it says it need a version of mozilla and all kinds of stuff....

manthram 05-12-2003 03:52 PM

yeah that happenes. whenever you are trying to install a X based application it asks for alot of dependencies. one cant help but find a suitable application compatabile with your exsisting environment or install all the dependencies

s9722 05-12-2003 03:57 PM

umm can I get a direct link to this monitor because it seems I cant find a working download link anywhere

once again I am useing redhat linux 7.3 if that matter at all...
