    Fedora 2

    Sorry, got a bit carried away (distracted...) on my last post.. This site is not for n00bs, soory. However, the coolness in linux is the ability to actually get your hands dirty trying to get things working the way -you- want. Also, this is a site that is actually based around ACPI vs. APM but it does have a link to some radeon drivers that should help. http://www.sas.upenn.edu/~vbraun/computing/T41/power.html

    Fedora 2

    Kinda. ATi just has slooow driver support for linux. Ditto on the nVidia comment. However, if you are determined to use ATi (like I am..) you will have to get the updated drivers through ATi's web site. After installed, you can use fglrx config utils that install with the drivers to generate the XF86Config file. However, if you run Fedora, like myself, you will have to cut and paste the pertinant video card settings from the generated XF86Config to the xorg.conf file. Also take note that there are some nasty issues with running a dual head setup with ATi cards, and your 'puter will most-likely hang if rhgb is still enabled on boot. I have gobbs of information on that if you happen to go that route. It also has alot to do with what version if xfree86 that you run too. This is a hot topic on bugzilla for people with my type of setup.
  3. Ummm.. 1. Bios Temps via MBM or MB software. 2. CPU temps via probe /w AerogateII ( ihave one, and it is a b**** to setup the probes right...) 3. Your tounge . If it burns, its too hot.
  4. F'n good distro. I have it running on my laptop for ..ehem.. wireless networking...and have had great results. Props for stock hardware compatability... however.......................................... I have had bad problems with dual-head & ATI. ATI has no support for xf86 .6+ btw... Ever had a console crash b4?
  5. 1. download tar.gz or RPM that you want to install 2. ctrl-alt-f1 3. login as root 4. type 'cc' 5. type 'gcc' 6. if both of those produce command not found, download cc or gcc RPM's. (i goto http://rpm.pbone.net to get rpms that i need..) 7. <if RPM> rpm -i <rpm.name> will install rpms..) 8. <if tar.gz> change directory to the tar that you want to install 8.1. tar -zxvf <tar.gz application name> 8.2. cd <untar'd directory> 8.3. ./configure && make && make install 9. if you are still getting the cc or gcc not found error let me know. 10. ctrl-alt-f7 will get you back to X
  6. As posted before, your X console isnt your only choice. It -typically- resides on console 7. (ctrl-alt-F7) .. Now if you would like to go to traditional linux, switch consoles. ie: ctrl-alt-F1. ii typically boot to runlevel 3, which is all text, and i have to start X by hand... At first glance, this is not really usefull unless you can multitask very well. I jump through consoles like there is no tomorrow, so you will get the hang of it.... Now, if you notice, there is little to no difference between an X terminal window, and a text-based console, however there are differences on how they operate. Currently, I am doing my research on the subject for you before I try to start spouting of some of the more specific console differances, so just trust me for a sec .. But for the most part, you will be able to do anything you want in any type of console or terminal window... Also, you need to see if you installed cc or gcc... I have never had an install of linux that didnt atleast have cc installed... Even better, install the RPM. http://rpm.pbone.net has it... (do an advanced search and you can select your distro..)
  7. Hmm.. seems like the $PATH statement is not set correctly. Also, you might want to take into account that environment variables in an xwindows console and a regular text console are different. Before we get too complicated here, go to an xterm console and type 'cc' and see if the c compiler runs. Also, do the same with 'gcc' and see if -it- runs. If not under xwindows, then do this under another console. (ctrl-alt-F1 through F9, F7 being the x console.) If cc or gcc is not installed, which I -highly- doubt, we will work on your $PATH statement changes, aight? (you should find a gcc or cc RPM with google.....) (oh... cc is C Compiler, and gcc is GNU C complier... it sems that either/or should work if the other doesnt... dig it?)
  8. As an add on to this, you can also do the same with YUM and APT.. ie: yum install gaim / apt-get install gaim That should download and install gaim and its dependancies..
  9. Ditto. 7Gb of swap is just way too much. Think of it as the windows page file instead of a partition and you will have a good start on how it works. It is just alot more efficient than the swap methods from M$.. But the basic rule still applies.. you want about 2 (good) to 3(a little too much) times more swap space than RAM. This is flexable too... if you have 3 or 4 gigs of RAM, you could prolly match the size of your swap space instead of doubling it or tripling it. Now lets look at the partition structure of linux for a sec. Your install partion will be ext3 and your swap partion will be, well, swap space. Typically, the 'install' partion is refering to where the root directory will be mounted too. Now, you can mount other partions, and other drives to different directories. In example, on one of my other computers, I have my root '/' (not /root) on hda0 and my /home directory on hdb0 both ext3, and also had a fat32 partion '/mnt/windoze' on a third hdd. Getting down to it, the actual install requirements are easily bent, but that is all you need is one ext3 part, and a swap part, but that is not a -requirement- either! You can install linux on dang near every file system, but I would stay away from NTFS or FAT if possible ...
  10. I am just asking around to see if anyone has installed Fedora 3 yet... Good? Bad? Ugly? Anyway, I am downloading now and will install it anyway, however, some heads-up would be good..
  11. Ok.. just to make life alot easier with dependancies, it is alot easier to get the right RPM for your distribution. If it is easy for you to work through dependancy issues, then compiling the program is cool. Also, it helps alot to get the right RPMs for your distro... ie: gaim-1.01-FC2.rpm for Fedora, MDK.rpm for Mandrake and so forth. This will nail down alot of dependancy problems too. As far as the ./configure&&make&&make install (short cut, btw.. the && will only do the next step if the first one completes cleanly, nifty, eh?) This needs to be used with the tar ball sources. I use RPMs, sources, whatever. Souce zips are usually smaller than RPMs so it really depends on my connection speed that I have at the time. But back to it... i think that GAIM is installed by default with MDK isn't it?
  12. Some easy ways to upgrade FC2. Dowload one (or both!) of these programs: YUM (an updated Yellow Dog linux updater..)-- http://linux.duke.edu/projects/yum/ APT -- http://freshrpms.net/apt/ I -think- that yum is installed already with the FC2 distro, but it doesnt hurt to get the upgrade. I use a combination of them both to update all the software on my PCs and it usually does a good job. I have had -slight- problems with YUM, but they were not too hard to work out. Also, there are better yum.conf files out there to use and stay away from the stock one... it is as slow as the RH updater. Both of these take into account all the installed RPMs that you have and should upgrade them all. Take note that these programs will also upgrade your kernel automatically as well, so you will have to specify manually if you do not wish this to happen.
  13. Ok, I don't have direct experiance with gamespy, but if I wanted to track down an IP address of some one, I would first find out how the chat network is setup. For example, AIM has all traffic going through dedicated servers. So, the actual IP addresses for people are translated there, and very hard to get. However, if game spy does not do this, I would use a good network sniffer to find out... Ethereal is a good (free!) sniffer, btw.. I use it all the time. You should be able to associate the chat text with the source and destination addresses fairly easy..
  14. (long time no see folks...) I am not supprised that he is getting results like that... look at the timings.

    Installing Snort

    That is exactly what I use, actually... (PHP /w GD mighta been a giveaway) Even so, I am still pushing ACID to its limits, even with heavy rule-tweeking and FlexResp. It simply is starting to crack under the load.
