Need some good distro ideas
location: linux.com - date: May 30, 2009
I have an old Dell Optiplex GS, and I want to work on it a little. I want to put either a Linux Operating system or a windows Operating system.
It used to have Windows 98 SE before I did a hard drive swap.
It is in a Desktop Style, NOT a laptop
The system is old, so i am not sure what the specifications are.
A wild guess would be...
*Pentium Processer (original) $
*64 MB - 132 MB Memory
*40 Gigs Hard Drive $
*Floppy Drive $
*CD Drive $
$ For sure
I will be using the computer for a mix of Desktop to Networking. I will need a Wireless Network Support, With an Eithernet Support too.
Thanks in Advance.
BTW... Heres a Picture that looks exactly like the system
Almagamate different OS Firefox's Bookmarks. Possible? Ideas/Suggestions?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 30, 2013
I am replacing my one and only desktop computer disk with 2 new ones, and with that am going to create a /MEDIA partition on the bigger platter and symlink it with /mnt in the / partition on the smaller SSD, that is going to boot and hold the /root distros.
I regulary have Xubuntu LTS and Debian Stable Xfce installed and will continue with that. I usually have 4-5 others too, but I don't save anything important in those and they are "expendable", Xubuntu LTS and Debian stable Xfce are not. So, with Xubuntu, I can backup Mozilla Firefox Bookmarks with this, and I assume I can do it with Debian's Iceweasel instance of Firefox, too. I cannot do it for both and try to install the backup instances to each, because of this warning:
***Caution: Restoring bookmarks from a backup will overwrite your current set of bookmarks with the ones in the backup file.***
Anyone have any ideas how I can have one instance of "Bookmarks" that is always acc
"GRUB Error 17" Any ideas? Need help with triple boot: Ubuntu/Kubuntu/2000 Pro

OK. So i got back from vacation this afternoon, and turned my two main computers on; my server, a Dell Precision Workstation 220, and my internet browsing computer, a Dell Dimension T500. My server boots up fine, and just used it to start this thread. My T500 however, loaded the bios, and started to load "Grub", the OS manager for Linux. When it gets about half way through, it gives me this exact message in a DOS style Black screen/White text.
GRUB Loading stage1.5.
GRUB loading, please wait...
Then the computer freezes up and will go a _(bleep!)_ step further. I tried going to the bios and setting the CD drive IDE channel to 1st boot instead of the hard drives and then put my 2000 Pro CD in, restarted the computer, and I get the same result (it will not ever begin trying to load the OS CD). By the way as far as OS's go, about a month ago I installed Windows 2000 Pro on the systems 6GB Maxtor Drive set to master jumper. Then a week ago before I left for v
VSFTPD Error 550 I can upload, but Cannot download, any ideas?

Ok so this is my config, is something wrong with it?
I have created the anonymous folder and gave it the proper permissions, yet I can only upload and create files, if I try to download I get Error Code 550 cannot change directory. I would also like to point out the local accounts are fully functional, and my problem is with anonymous downloaders only.
LXer: More Ideas About Ubuntu HUD Design, Mockup

Published at LXer:
Ubuntu team knows how to stay in news. Two months before the release of Ubuntu 12.04, Mark has exploded a bomb which is making everyone talk about Ubuntu. This time its HUD in the spot-light. Both sides, those against the idea of messing up with Ubuntu UI and those who support it are trying to put forth their points in a constructive manner.
Multiseat Configuration in 10.04 xorg.conf file posted, need opinions/ideas.

The title says it all. Anyone have any luck with setting up a Multiseat configuration in 10.04? I beat my head against the wall all day today. I tried a variety of things but here's my xorg.conf file (with this file I get one working monitor and one black screen). It's an nvidia Geforce 7300 - Let me know if anything stands out! Thanks in advance!

[SOLVED] Passwordless SSH setup not working, any ideas?
- date: June 6, 2007
I followed this HowTo http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/152 and I've read numerous threads here at LQ and on the web but I cannot get this to function!
I want passwordless logons for root access to work and client servers.
I have set up an RSA key on my box for [email protected]
(the basic Kubuntu machine name) and I copied/added the rsa_id_nopass.pub file to the end of the destination server's ~/.ssh/authorized_keys2 file, but it still isn't working; I am asked for a password (not passphrase) every time.
I have edited the ssh_config file (both on local machine and server) to use
and restarted the sshd server on both machines.
I want to get root access for servers when I log in using these keys. Unfortunately it isn't giving me root or regular user access at all; 'ssh [email protected]
' is acting like it would had none of my work been done.
My system is Kubuntu 7.04 and the test server is a RedHat Enterprise Linux 9, but th
Need Another Set of Eyes on a Simple Python App
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 26, 2013
Hello everyone. I am a CIT instructor at a technical college and have come up with a small C++ app to clock students in and out (some have coop jobs and it's hard to keep track of 20-40 students). The app I created (C++ version) earlier this year has worked out quite well, but some other instructors wanted to implement this in their class. I decided to rewrite the app in Python and use the Tkinter GUI to make it a lot easier than the previous version: all text/CLI based.
Most of the app is ready to go and the basic functionality is there. There are just a few things I need another set of eyes on, thus why I'm posting here.
Disclaimer: This is my first Python app (more than the basic stuff) so don't judge me. I've basically pieced tutorials together since that's how I learn programming the best.
This app is extremely simple: there are two listboxes(available students and present students) with Clock In, Clock Out and Exit buttons. Students come in, find their name in the AStudent
Home Server Software Ideas
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 20, 2009
What al are you using on your headless home server?
I'm not necessarily wondering about Gnome/KDE apps since Ubuntu server is a CLI driven headless server. CLI or web based and available in the repositories would be best.
Here's my system I have setup recently and am using now:
Ubuntu Server 8.10 Intrepid (8.04 Hardy upgraded, headless troll which lives in my closet)
Ebox - Web GUI, Samba, Squid, Dan's Guardian, DNS, DHCP, PDC (essentially home router/gateway management)
Firefly Media Server - Itunes compatible DAAP server for network MP3 sharing
TorrentFlux - Web based torrent downloading
What else is out there which would be useful? Chime in and out it out there. I have seen plenty of people asking about home servers, so we might as well let everyone know what we can actually do.
One thing I thought of, but not yet found, is some web based stats page to act as a home page. Also a web based file manager, something like AjaXplorer (http://www.ajaxplorer.info) would be useful.
