Hmmm - ditto that Void - for the joy of working with RH AND for having a choice to change as and when we feel like it. I just finished installing Oracle 9.2 on RH 7.3.

tx.

That gave me the right place to look.

Had to however add "pts/[0-9][0-9]*" to the "<console>"
class to make it work correctly.

Having a problem with vnc - but'll try and see if the above fixed that as well.

permissions for sound and video

Hi. My problem :oops: - signing on as a non-root user after a reboot the /dev/dsp and /dev/video* permissions have reverted to 600. Which means using su to change them. Where and how do I make the permission changes permanent, except through a startup script? or is there something I miss? I do somet...

Athene OS and X11 alternative

Anybody have any experience with either the OS
or the X11 frontend?

Encountered the site by accident.
Is it worth the $30 odd for the product to investigate?

The site - http://www.rocklyte.com/athene/index.html -

Regards.

ahem. Right - lets get the terminology right. Am 'course talking about raid 1. Reason: it is a straight forward, simple solution and disk space is cheap. Raid 5 - I'm not sure whether a 300Mhz mac-hine will do the job. Also the following was in mind when deciding on Raid 1. "Note If you are making a...

Pointers please

hi. Client gave me a 300mhz machine -no drives, only cd- and said "go build us a file server". I asked - "any prevs?" - "nah he said - make it work, and while you're at it - put a mail server on there". So my plan in brief.

No - it is only Mozilla that acts up. The rest of X is ok! Tx for the pointers - but that wasn't the problem - have read the Nvidia readme - but was non the wiser. In desperation - reinstalled Mozilla with the "--force" options, and it now seems to work again. :roll: Will have to check the other pro...

All the URL's for my bank end in ".asp"
and only really renders proper with m$ internet exploder.

That should be enough proof that the website is m$
based.

Is there another way of getting some more info?
eg. using pinky,finger or some such? to see the rev
or type of system/engines used?
