Problem might be that the daemon is not started? execute ps -ef|grep smb if the daemon is up you should get something like the following root 2335 1 0 Oct01 ? 00:00:00 smbd -D root 2337 2335 0 Oct01 ? 00:00:00 smbd -D if not - start it with /etc/init.d/smb start and make sure it is started as a serv...

apt and synaptic filenames

Hi guys. Have looked around but can't find an answer :oops: Is it possible to set apt (specific synaptic) to use the filenames as is in the reposits and not add all those "%" "_" (percent and unserscore) characters etc? Don't know about you - but to me it is very frustrating to check filenames (I'm ...

motherboards 64bit

Hi. Begged, borrowed and stole enough money to think about building a 64 bit system. What I have in mind is something like a GIGABYTE AMD mobo, but, cannot make up my mind whether to go for the socket 764 or 939 platform. If a 764 then do I go for the Sempron or Athlon64 processor? Where I live, the...

Mozilla is "sticky"

Hi. Dunno if this should be in Redhat/Fedora, but seeing the problem is with Mozilla, I parked it here. Upgraded my FC3 box to FC4 about 2 weeks after FC4 was released. Since then I find my mouse to be "sticky" ie. it doesn't allways move when I expect, a) like the interrupts get lost b) something i...

Touche. One of by really pet hates with *nix "professionals". Few years ago I managed a system running on a Sun box, and the database permissions gave problems - so they changed everything to 777. I bitched and moaned, and was told to go far away (and I was sort of the DBA etc.) So I left. Some mont...

ahemm Yes - now that I saw Voids' reply.. The default is track-at-once and you have to change it to disc-at-once - Not hundred percent sure... but shall try and find out - that is if I can get hold of the guy that burnt the dvd. Just know that one of those settings doesn't do what you expect when bu...

Is the same type of problem I had (wasn't with Fedora though). Maybe this helps. The way the ISO is burnt onto the disc makes the difference. As I don't have a dvd writer, I asked a friend to burn it. He burnt it using Nero 6.?? on a winbloze machine - and it wouldn't boot, everything else was there...

hidden thumbnails

Hi. Got a serious suprise on my system today. Been fooling around with security cameras and "motion" for the past 8 weeks or so. To check everything I list the motion default directory as thumbnails every now and then to check what the cameras are picking up etc. etc. I notices I'm losing a lot of s...

Must say.. :D

I did a double take on "keep it under 4 or 5 pounds if possible"
and my thought was "pounds" as in money, must be a typo,
until I realised it's the weight of the thing.... :oops:

Shows where my mind was at the moment.
