Does anybody have some old school 4 wire leased line modems (9k6 vintage)
lying in the junk pile that they may want to part with?

I have a laptop running Kubuntu 8.04 and it has begun spontaneously
going to sleep a short time after I log in. After resuming everything
appears to work fine. If I don't log in then it will sit on the greeter
screen without suspending.
I suspect there is something in my .kde/ that is doing this. Anyone
know what I should be looking for?

Sudo has me boggled .....
I'm trying to configure a group %linuxadmins .. My account is a
member of linuxadmins , when I sudo iptables -h I get "sudo: iptables:
command not found". If I sudo /sbin/iptables -h it works fine.
My config is at follows (standard config)
Cmnd_Alias NETWORKING = /sbin/route, /sbin/ifconfig, /bin/ping,
/sbin/dhclient, /usr/bin/net, /sbin/iptables, /usr/bin/rfcomm,
/usr/bin/wvdial, /sbin/iwconfig, /sbin/mii-tool
Cmnd_Alias SOFTWARE = /bin/rpm, /usr/bin/up2date, /usr/bin/yum
Cmnd_Alias SERVICES = /sbin/service, /sbin/chkconfig
Cmnd_Alias LOCATE = /usr/bin/updatedb
Cmnd_Alias STORAGE = /sbin/fdisk, /sbin/sfdisk, /sbin/parted,
/sbin/partprobe, /bin/mount, /bin/umount
Cmnd_Alias DELEGATING = /usr/sbin/visudo, /bin/chown, /bin/chmod, /bin/chgrp
Cmnd_Alias PROCESSES = /bin/nice, /bin/kill, /usr/bin/kill, /usr/bin/killall
Cmnd_Alias DRIVERS = /sbin/modprobe
Defaults env_keep = "COLORS DISPLAY HOSTNAME HISTSIZE INPUTRC KDEDIR \
LS_COLORS MAIL PS1 PS2 QTDIR USERNAME \
LANG LC_ADDRESS LC_CTYPE LC_COLLATE LC_IDENTIFICATION \
LC_MEASUREMENT LC_MESSAGES LC_MONETARY LC_NAME
LC_PAPER LC_TELEPHONE LC_TIME LC_ALL LANGUAGE LINGUAS \
%linuxadmins ALL=(ALL) ALL
I have also tried
%linuxadmins ALL = NETWORKING, SOFTWARE, SERVICES, STORAGE,
DELEGATING, PROCESSES, LOCATE, DRIVERS
with the same results.

Let me know if you have had problem playing flash videos at all, I've
had a fair few problems with it logging up.
I have tried kde, gnome, kdm, gdm, straight X windows without
anything, Brand new login with fresh profile etc and still getting the
bug. Chrome has its own flash plugin which still has the problem,
firefox with standard plugin also has the same bug.
basically after about 2 mins it locks up, the active window is still
usable (ie a konsole) , and mouse moves but can't click. I can use
the keyboard to type but not to navigate alt+tab to other windows etc.
I can get to tty1 and back no problems but again not change windows in
the window manager.
If anyone has got a similar problem, or a fix, let me know.

As far as I can tell, Maverick seems to work just fine. However, I haven't
installed it yet. Has anyone here got a dual-boot system with Windows 7? I've
read about this bug where grub2's bootloader is overwritten after running
Windows, and I don't know if it applies to this distribution as well -- I'm
rather wary of upgrading (a clean install in this case, as I'm skipping Lucid)
as a result.
I would like to upgrade, as it finally fixes the inability of my laptop to mute
the internal speakers when headphones are plugged in (that's really the major
reason why I want to upgrade; the other one is that Karmic's running rather
slowly after a year).
The Waikato Linux Users Group have a meeting in one week from today:
