Building a router, need to buy a little router case.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 20, 2005
Hello. I'm trying to build a router for work. I just want to load a small install of slackware and when a user sshs in, it will foward the port. Easy, easy. I saw a few banners for a motherboard,ram,cpu & small HDD in a tiny box that looks just like a router. Do anyone know where I can find these? Or what they call them? I don't want to blow a couple of grand on a server, and these small boxes would be suitable. They were not mini-atx, they looked like a barebones router. Very small.
Thanks for any help,
Edit: I was just thinking I dont know if slackware will run on that processor (probably an Hitachi-SuperH). Suggestions are appreciated for the most compadible UNIX like O/S.
Need a little help creating an init.d script
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 13, 2010
I'd like to have a simple application I need automatically start on startup and stop on shutdown. I planned on using update-rc.d to automatically configure the run levels, but I guess I first need a script in the init.d directory.
I tried doing this based on a Python template I found but failed miserably. I was hoping, if this is easy, someone could bang out a quick script for me or at least point me in the right direction of where to find a basic template and how to modify it...
I have a dynamic DNS update client provided by my ISP that came with next to no documentation.
As best as I can figure out it's a simple binary that encrypts and stores my username / password somewhere (I hope) and regularly updates the dynamic dns service.
I put the binary in /bin/ and found the options when you run it are:
--status (display current status)
--help (displays list of options)
--stop (sets status to Offline and exits)
--start (this is the default optio
Need a little push...

So... been around linux for a number of years, beginning with Slackware, Redhat (before Fedora existed), SuSE, Debian, etc. Last few years I've been using Ubuntu - both Unity and XFCE.
Lately I've been wanting to go back to an RPM based distro... no concrete reason, just a feeling.
I'm kind of torn between Fedora and openSuSE... both should support the newer hardware that I need, hopefully with minimal hand-editing of config files. Part of me leans towards openSuSE, because 'back in the day' it was one of the first Linux distros I really really liked (something like v.5.2 or 5.3), but a while back I had a less-than-positive experience with 12.1 on my last laptop. The other part of me leans towards Fedora because openSuSE doesn't really have a fully supported LTS version (yes I'm aware of the efforts behind 'Evergreen') and I'm mostly... curious.
It sounds like both distros have made the leap to systemd, and may or may not have all the kinks worked out of that transition
New to Debian need a little help.

I just installed debian 64 testing via net install to one of my computers.
Everything went very smoothly.
I have two questions.
1. Apt-get is having trouble with the security repository. Here is the message I get:
W: Couldn't stat source package list http://security.debian.org etch/updates/main Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/security.debian.org_dists_etch_updates_main_binary-amd64_Packages) - stat (2 No such file or directory)
W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems
apt-get update did not correct the problem.
2. I did apt-get install kde and here is what the error message was:
DeadPenguin:/# apt-get install kde
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have

need a little help with a partition.

I know this is a ubuntu forum but I need some help to create a partition in Damn small linux and this is the best help forum I know.
I use this command to try and start cfdisk in order to create a partition.
Sudo -s cfdisk /dev/hdb
and I get
cfsisk: /sbin/cfdisk: cannot execute binary file
I hope some one can help.

First time building PC, need hardware help/suggestions for a budget poweruser/gamer
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 15, 2004
I found an awsome looking case on Ebay for about $50 that i am really interested in, and something caught my eye. I'm really new to buying hardware, so I need some help. The case starts with "ATX" but some Maxtor and western digital drives start with ATA, will these not be compatible in this ATX case?
Also, I want to get the most bang for my buck, because I recently got quite a bit of grad money, and making more while working with my father. Right now I have $400 to spend on this system. Can anyone recommend Video cards, sound card, hard drives, motherboard and processor, RAM, and in general everything in the guys of a PC? Anyone know some pretty reliable sties that offer low priced hardware?
Wasn't sure if this belonged in the Hardware forum or General, because it is not Linux specified, so sorry if it's in the wrong forum. And thanks for any help anyone can give me.
Trying to compile game, need a little help
- date: March 9, 2010
Hi i got this program from one of the editors at www.linuxformat.com. He has a small write up in search of beta testers. I decided to become one. I also wanted to sharpen my skills with compiling code. Here is the link if you want to try it out. http://www.tuxradar.com/files/brainp...arty003.tar.gz
I've ported my iPhone game, Brain Party, to Linux. It's now stable enough that I'm looking for a handful of testers able to give it a whirl and help find bugs. So, if you a) know what SDL/OpenGL are, b) are happy compiling stuff from source, and c) have 30 minutes to spare, please drop me a line at [email protected]
and I'll set you up.
I tried to compile the program but i didn't work for me. I cd to the folder and typed make and it went through this process
g++ -g -c -Wno-deprecated `sdl-config --cflags` -I/usr/X11R6/include -o balloonblaster.o balloonblaster.cpp
Need a little help in running jsp pages(Tomcat server).

I found this gem nestling in the 'Native games' list. And my son, aged 4, adores it!
Now, i've installed this game into my /home folder. My son normally plays using my account so not a prolem. However, yesterday i set him up with his own account - he can't write yet but he can 'type' his name and hit the 'enter' key...
Which would be a better folder choice when installing games for more than one user?
And can anyone help me with adding this game to the 'Applications/Games' menu and/or adding a shortcut to his desktop.
I tried creating a launcher, it doesn't work from his account or from my own account, i'm afraid i don't know why...
The readme that comes with the game tries to explain a few things, but is just giving me a headache after an hour of trying to sort this out myself, sorry but I'm as green as the grass arround linux.
Any help or tips will be very greatly appreciated, now let me go and find the paracetamols...
Brain teasers, puzzl
