Hehe good for you. Started out the same. Used to run kppp inside gnome. But gnome-ppp is really more customizable.

But don't erase your KDE libraries just yet, there are still a lot of good KDE programs out there e.g. K3B which you can run inside gnome.

aus9 here having seen your link when you replied to my grubconf thread.

firstly I loved your site.

Nice to see your move to grub as I think you can guess I am a devotee.

I have seen your menu.lst and altho I don't say it on my tut explicitly I have never bothered with eyecandy.

However, grub source does not have graphics enabled in the stage 2 files whereas debian and I think a cvs source does.

If you want splashimage support stuff is here

http://ruslug.rutgers.edu/~mcgrof/grub-images/

OFFTOPIC

Another part of your site mentions blender.

I am interested in stereograph program but failed to install it on my system. There are some other linux ones but I might use wine and traxxdale's 3d stereogram program to generate stereographs.

If you are interested post here.

I am on dial up so sorry you can't spy on my musings.

I've visited that grub splashimage site several times and it's just now that I noticed that the grub images are included in the HOWTO, will download that I guess and try it out. The debian 0.95 packages didn't run in slack, though you can cleanly compile, patch and install it.

Well, yah shifted to GRUB when I started multibooting. It really is more flexible than LILO.

At the start, never really cared about eyecandy, but its easier to turn people away from windows when they see that linux isn't just commandline

Well as for 3d programs, I really can't do much with 256MB of RAM, so I just play around with Blender once in awhile.

Hey wait a minute, I have a bare installation of debian sarge. Maybe I could apt-get grub and install it to hd0 or run grub-install inside debian since I think grub came with the install. And hopefully that will give me splashimage support. Hmmm...

Yup. Grub-installing from debian worked Now have splashimage support for GRUB. Would have felt better if I resolved this inside slack.

Man... let me just say your site and Shilo's site have probably been the most useful things ever. Seriously...

Oh yeah, and really. Don't delete the KDE libraries. Wayyy too many programs use them.

Sheesh. A while ago I tried an install with neither KDE or Gnome and practically nothing else I tried to get worked.

Yah I agree, though I'd like to run everything in gnome, some KDE programs are better than their gnome counterparts. Anyway it doesn't hurt to use the best of both worlds.

Hey insyte, Great site. If you can include some tutorials about installing webservers and mail server with mysql support, it will be more useful for slackers as many things are already included in ur site. Thanks. Again u created a great site, good work. Hey i know that i am asking a off topic question. From where did u get that domain name? How much did u pay for it. Thanks cheers

Well for the domain name it's a free service. Similar to cjb.net and dot.tk. It's really just a subdomain and it forwards to the webpage's actual location which is another subdomain c/o the webhost.

As for webservers, well I've actually finished a section of Apache, but I haven't posted it yet. Will probably post it when I get my home network established (haven't bought the wlans yet) so it will also include samba, mysql. The section I finished only deals with Apache and activating php.

For mailservers, you can check out shilo's website if you want to use squirrelmail. As for me I might try out postfix, but I haven't really decided yet.

Yup, simple tutorials on running the different services are definitely on my todo list.

0. Apache (the one that comes with slack not Apache 2.x) - done but webpage needs editing. (i'm just lazy atm)
1. MySQL
2. Samba
3. SSH
4. Mailservers - probably postfix
5. DSL setup - (once my server installs it I've been waiting for 2 weeks)
6. Wireless LAN configuration (when I buy one )

Like most of you guys I'm also a newbie when it comes to these topics, but I promise to get these out as soon as I get them running on my own system
