If you can ssh from one box to the other and are using konqueror you can use the fish protocol from within the file browser (fish just being a graphical ssh session) fish://user@192.168.x.x and you can log into the other box, after that it's just a matter of drag & drop from one window to the other...

I think i have a thing against RPMs (or maybe YUM? ).


But also, i just started using KDE 4.1 Beta and i am quite enjoying it. Still a lot of things that need to be updated. And supposedly it should be more memory efficient than kde3 because of qt4??

XDMCP and KDM

(edit: this isnt really Kubuntu/Debian specific, so maybe it shouldnt be in the debian section?) In the past i've successfully configured XDMCP and GDM to login to a server from a laptop terminal. Now I cant figure out how to do the same with KDM. I've edited kdmrc and enabled xdmcp, specified port ...

Groupware

Has anyone had good experience with groupware, there was the thread on eGroupWare and it seems good.

Has anyone tried horde? I'm looking for something to manage some major development projects and dotProject isnt cutting it (my current groupware solution).

After many many attempts i still cant figure out what i made it. Any ideas to getting root access. Lilo is installed, but doesnt pause or anything it loads ...

the iPod players work fine on linux, but you have to use gtkpod or amarok to put songs on it (its these applications that build the db on the player, not the player itself as is the case with RCA players). RCA players are good because they are just a removable media device formatted as FAT. The play...
