All those libraries seem to be provided by rpm-4.2-0.69. You can find a copy of it here: http://www.wesmo.com/rpm2html/contributed/RPMS/rpm-4.2-0.69.i386.html FYI, pages like this come up pretty consistently if you google for a specific library file. This page was the first hit of a google search fo...

Awesome. Aside from transcoding video and dvd production, 99% of all the files I process are under 1GB. So I don't really run into filesize limits all that often. In fact, I've only hit any sort of wall just once. I was using GMT to mathematically surface a 1.9GB file, and it just plain gave up - ga...

Windows has its place, I guess. What I'm concerned with is that it shouldn't be every place. If Microsoft's share of the desktop OS market was even as low as 70%, we'd get more hardware that was Linux-ready, and more corporate development of Linux. In our current situation, the only effect Windows p...

We use Dell laptops exclusively at work, so I have had the opportunity to explore their capabilities at length. It is true that low-priced Dell laptops are only available to home users with Dell Wireless 1390 mini-cards, which are not out-of-box compatible with Linux. However, small-business custome...

computer shopping

I want a laptop computer I can install Linux on. It needs to have at least a GB of RAM, a decent processor, sound, and a graphics card that doesn't require 3rd party drivers. A wireless card that works out of the box would be nice too. Finally, I don't want to pay very much. I can get a Dell that me...

Simplest thing to do: launch Firefox from a terminal window instead of from an icon or menu. Then when those error messages get sent to stderr, you can see them, and maybe find out why the 'fox is crashin. That's what this is, by the way - when Firefox crashes, it just closes, usually with no warnin...

I've used 0.9b and maybe 1.0b, but haven't had a chance to hook up the new one yet. There's a lot of things I like about Firefox, but I still know more about whipping straight Mozilla into shape. Occasionally I will run into a problem in Firefox that I can't sort out, but I can always get it solved ...

That's true, I guess. I was more referring to drinking as something that alienates your family and friends, can cost you your job, and can very easily kill -- negative. AA does none of those things -- positive.

That doesn't answer your question (it's not a player), but it'd be a good thing to have it anyway.

Agreed - the 12 steps are just a program, a method. They give you a set of goals to work toward. The real benefit is the support group. You can go through the steps by yourself at home, but you don't stand much chance of succeeding without support. And friends/family are great to have, because they ...

That 5% is probably right, but it might not be giving you the whole picture. Based on what I have read, AA (and sister-programs like CA and NA) only works well when you "come in". Unfortunately, as alcoholism progresses, most people will get to a point where they either shoot themselves or make a ph...

I knew something bad had happened - this site is almost never down. But during my mid-morning forum run, Void's Forums were non-responsive. I figured you fried a hard drive or something. Thank gosh it's only a brown-out! :wink:

The Canopus boxes that professional video editors use run around $300, so $150 is quite a bargain. Thanks for the suggestions.

analog-digital converters

I'm interested in purchasing an analog-digital audio/video converter. Something I can connect to my computer that allows me to capture VHS video or LP audio, that sort of thing. There's a couple at BestBuy for like $120, but they are Windows only (lame). I've seen a few for Macs as well, but they tr...
