Could someone provide me with the 6 cd versionof this
.. I don't have an adsl connection .. that is the 3 binary
disks plus the 3 srpm disks .. I'll pay media cost and postage .. just give me an address
The easiest I've found to do this is to use rpmbuild on the spec file,
the problem is including your own patches and getting them in the right
place without conflicts. The problem I was having was that my patch
(LIDS) wasw conflicting with the redhat patches. Never actually tested
if it would work.
Otherwise there's a base kernel.org spec file available from somewhere
but I'd have to find the link to it first in the large heap of
Gerwin van de Steeg
Could someone help with advise please
I have a netgear mr814 wireless router with a dedicated adsl
connector and 4 10/100mBPS utp sockets.
Currently I have my main linux box hocked up via a cable to this ..
the mr814 does dhcp allocation ..
I do not have an adsl connection, but use a 56k internal
modem to connect to my isp who assigns me a dynamic ip number each time I connect.
I have found that if I connect to the isp (using kppp)
I cannot access the internal netwrk .. including the
router (which has its own 192.168.x.x ip number ..
similarly although I can dial using kppp and make a connection .. I cannot access the internet when the
intenal netwrk is up and running. I presume this is due to confusion about where to send the packets .. to the modem or the lan card.
What is the best way to separate out these 2 networks and
get them running so .. say I could use a browser on one of the boxes with a wlan card to connect thru the main linjux box and modem to the internet?
This is an area of confusion for me .. does ipchanins do something here?
I'm running a 2.6 kernel on my desktop (Red Hat 9) machine, with a RPM
from Arjan van de Ven at
I want to take the standard RH kernel (which I try and keep to as much
as possible) and patch it for a couple of things, and then build an RPM
which is as close to the original version as possible, with just the
added extra features.
When I unpack the SRPM of the kernel source, I get a
/usr/src/linux-2.6.1-whatever directory, and I can run 'make rpm' in
that directory after configuration. However, this gives me an RPM that
doesn't insert itself in grub.conf and doesn't build an initrd.
I assume there is a similar method to Debian's make-kpkg that will build
me an all in one RPM, and I just can't find it.
I expect one of our local Red Hat gurus (orj?) has battled this before,
and I'd love to know what other people do in this situation.

Forget the VGA. If you want a used 15" monitor with built in speakers I
have one here you can have for $20 + Shipping ($30 Mainfreight, so $50
total). Then you could at least use 800x600 which might be acceptable.
640x480 is ridiculously small.

A while ago I posted a question asking if it were possible for Open
Office to work with Red Hat 8 and an old VGA monitor, because there is a
problem that the fonts are far too big, e.g. "file" takes up 3/4's of
the screen. The response was basically "no" nothing practical could be
done about the problem.
However, that does not appear to be the complete story for two reasons.
Firstly, I have seen a posting saying that it is a Red Hat 8 bug to do
with the initial specification of the screen size. The message
indicated that if the screen size was specified in mm's then there was
no prob., but if inches were used then there was a problem. Red Hat have
supposedly posted a fix, but I have not been able to find it. Can
anyone tell me where to find the fix or how to specify the screen size
on an installed system please?
The second reason that Open Office must work with my configuration is
that it does for one of the users. This user has been the most
uncontrolled and cavalier in his use of the Internet and downloads.
Initially, I thought it was due to the fact that he had Macro Media
Flash and the others didn't. However, this proved to be not true. Can
anyone suggest where I should look to find the difference that makes
Open Office work for this one user, please?
Thanks in anticipation
Sorry about the late notice (The meeting reminder bot _will_ be fixed by
next meeting) but we are having a WLUG committee meeting on Wednesday,
so anyone with any business for the meeting should get it to me before
Just a reminder that the January meeting is tonight. Lindsay picked the
short straw for tonight, and the topic is "Cisco to Linux Interoperability"
Cisco to Linux Interoperability. At Open2View (cnr Grey St and Cobham
Drive) at 7:30pm.
I've just fixed printing support for the WLUG Wiki
(http://www.wlug.org.nz/). If you print a page on the wiki, it'll now
strip off the sidebar, top and bottom navbars, and anything else thats
not really content for that page.
This is done using CSS, so if you have a browser that can change style
type, you can select the 'Printer' style to see what it will come out like.
EG: in Mozilla, go to "View | Use Style | Printer"
Or, you can *probably* use 'Print Preview' and it should more or less
display right, although Mozilla is a bit broken here - it'll look like
the text is overlapping, but it will print out just fine :)
