ldd /usr/bin/gaim worked just fine, and gave me exactly what I was looking for. Maybe not good news... So the command I tried first was the one you suggested, which I read as ldd 'which gaim' , which totally did not work. Can you please explain what this which thing is all about? I assume it works k...

Well, it's true that OSX is not totally open source. But it is based on OpenBSD, and I do a lot of work with tcsh, and I have compiled all of my libraries/tools from source. Most Mac forums/users out there ignore the beauty and usefulness of the BSD subsystem, and it is difficult to find help from t...

Library querying

I have this open-source program called gaim (maybe you've heard of it?) and I want to do a resource port to OSX. For more information as to how this is done, check out gimp.app at gimp.org - the gimp port works dandy. I have all the dependencies for gaim installed (fontconfig was the worst). Now I w...

Perhaps they are a bit embarassed by how shitty the card is? Okay, now is the time where I ask you what the hell the problem really is. Obviously, your graphics card does work, because you would not be able to use Yast or a gui of any kind if it did not. So then why in the world do you need a driver...

heh, the Radeon 7200 seems to be fully supported on the new X.org. Does Suse have it? Or are you stuck with XFree86?

Weird, if you go cruising hardware databases for a Radeon 7200, you find nothing. Nothing. It's like they just disappeared.

Guess not that many people around here have a Palm m515. If it connects via a USB cable, simply figuring out which /dev has been assigned to it and setting up the fstab would be chores in any distro. Now I'm kinda curious - how well do PalmOS and Linux mesh with each other generally? Is the m515 wel...

I guess my primary concern in security is to keep anyone who gets ftp access from gaining further access into my computer. I want to keep the ftp port open to share my data with colleagues and interested parties around the world, but I do not want anyone leaving the anonymous ftp area. Currently, th...

Wow, it should be connected to the internet, but I'm having trouble accessing it from home. I'm at a large university, and from inside their network, I can access it via foo.bar.edu. Obviously, that name means nothing outside their network. Call me a newb, but just how the heck do I access it from o...

Any ideas what I can do to increase security without reducing access? I certainly don't want any warez doodz crapping up my ftp space, and I don't really want anyone to gain access to any higher directories. I'll keep a good watch on the logs, but is there anything beyond that which might prevent an...

Okay, I downloaded the Slackware proftpd package to my Fedora2 box and extracted the default .conf file, and then transferred it to the Slackbox. No surprise to you, it worked perfectly! I have since made a couple adjustments, and now everything works according to plan. So my proftpd troubles are ov...

Yes, ftp has been commented out in etc/ftpusers. Sorry, I had that taken care of long before I came here for help. And ftp does exist in etc/passwd. In that file, ftp's home was not the home I had selected in my .conf file, so I changed it. From now on, I will address all questions in the order that...

Day Hackers?

If you ever read up on any hacker folklore on the net (ERS being a good source), you hear a lot about Unix coders pulling all-nighters at least once a week. I know I can't go to bed until I have fontconfig installed (dang fontconfig!). But this place is totally empty after normal business hours. Per...

Yeah, I suppose I have it misconfigured. I wanted to be sure that the access was set up exactly the way I wanted it, so I made my own proftpd.conf file. It works just fine if I login as myself (nonroot user), and that can even be done from a remote computer. But it is not accepting anonymous logins,...

I am able to ping and telnet the server without problem. I have a new problem now: I want total anonymous access - no password required. I thought I had taken care of this when I added the following line to proftpd.conf: AnonRequirePassword off So, it is asking for a password, wanting an email addre...
