Where do I go from here?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 1, 2011
I have installed Suse Linux Enterprise Server 11 onto the box that I am using as a server. Connected to the "server" is a Windows Vista PC.
Beyond installing the O/S with all the options I need - I am stuck. The Windows PC will not connect to the internet whereas the Linux server will.
What do I need to setup and in what order to get the pc working on the internet?
The path that I think I need to take is to disable dhcp on the broadband router and setup the server as dhcp (how and what); setup the rules in the firewall (how and what rules?) and setup dns and dhcp (how and what?)
Many thanx in advance for constructive answers.
Where do you come from?

In terms of using Ubuntu, i.e.
I'm really curious, are you:
1. Experienced Linux user, switching to ubuntu?
2. New Linux user, Ubuntu first Linux distro?
If this is the case, could you post your age group too? Something like less than 16, 16-35, 35-50, greater than 50 .. if you don't mind.
This could also be first time computer user, Ubuntu first operating system .. you get the idea.
3. New Linux user, trying out distributions till you found Ubuntu and stayed here?
If possible, a list of what distributions you tried and what kept you on Ubuntu.
4. Introduced by a friend/self/advertisements?
Huh? What advertisements!?
5. Do you run Ubuntu with English or your first language?
1st language - English or
1st language - Spanish or
2nd language - English
As far as I could see, there wasn't a thread like this before .. there is Kassetra's thread about what type of Ubuntu user you are, but that isn't what I am looking at here. Please note: don't
"Unix is a real OS", "Windows is a toy": Where does this come from? Please no bashing
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 22, 2011
I have heard and read phrases like "Unix is a real OS" and "Windows is a toy" in various places. (Removed a link to another post because that person did not approve of my linking to his post. My apologies to you.) I can even remember one of my college professors calling Windows a "toy". These are educated people, not mindless teenage boys we're talking about.
Fanboy-ism aside, I've always wondered exactly what people mean when they say these things.
I've always wanted to ask:
By what criteria could one judge Windows to be a toy?
What are the criteria for a software system to be a real OS?
Are they merely expressing their own biases, or do they really have some objective measures to base these statements on?
In what historical context did these phrases come into use, and in what groups? (I'm guessing Microsoft employees are out here.)
What I'm hoping for here is some perspective on the roots of these ideas and the nature of the people who express them. O
Lamp server 11.04 where do I go from here?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 22, 2011
Hello, I need somebody to point me in the right direction. Below is what I have done up to this point
ubuntu server LAMP 11.04 installed in VM
openssh (putty good)
apache2 website test is good. I can get to "it works page"
I need to know where I should go from here to accomplish my goals. Maybe it would help if somebody can help me break it down into smaller steps.
I need the following;
create user logon/access and account creation plus verification emails
users will need to be able select choices from multiple drop down menus. Inputs selected by users need to be stored in an mysql db. Any recommendations for books,links, or howtos videos will be most welcome. Thanks
newsforge article :Debian: Where we should go from here
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 14, 2005
newsforge has this interesting article :
Debian sarge has finally been released -- now what? If you ask me (and you didn't, but I'm going to tell you anyway), Debian should have two overarching priorities for the next release: 1. putting a timed release cycle in place, so what happened with sarge never happens again; and 2. keeping the growing family of Debian derivatives united around a common core -- namely, Debian itself. What's at stake? If we don't do something about both of these problems, actual and potential, Debian will be irrelevant by the time etch is out.
I agree with the time based release cycle.
I don't know much about LSB ...... I assume he's right.
about the common core ... it's great if every package in debian also works in ubuntu and vice versa ..... but this only makes sense IMO if the release cycle of debian is not too long ..... maybe 12 months.
In learning about fiber, where do I go from here?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 1, 2010
I have some very old qlogic qla2000 cards and fiber hard drives. Trying to learn how to use them before dropping big bucks. I found a driver set for linux written in 2004 that I believe the kernel at that time was 2.6.15 (don't hold me to that). I will need to compile during install is what I am told, but need to find an old release of redhat (or compat) with this kernel. Think I recall people having issues with 2.6.18 and above.
Someone mentioned Centos but isn't that newer than 2.6.15?
LXer: Where does Linux go from here?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 20, 2007
Published at LXer:
Linux is now mainstream -- so mainstream, in fact, that two of the top three Linux distributions are commercially successful operations, and the third aims to be. Every day, more and more old-school IT firms shake off their initial doubts, get in line behind their customers, and try Linux and other free software projects. In the face of such success, will Linux remain true to its free software ideals and to the community which created it? Or will it morph into a corporate byproduct, driven by the bottom line, and complacent with all forms of predatory intellectual property (IP), including software patents and closed, proprietary standards which are standard fare in the IT industry.
I trashed /usr/include/sys/mman.h where did it come from?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 18, 2009
Linux LinuxAtom 2.6.26-2-amd64 #1 SMP Fri Aug 14 07:12:04 UTC 2009 x86_64 GNU/Linux
About a week ago, I somehow overwrote /usr/include/sys/mman.h with an empty file. Rather than leaving it empty, I wrote myself a note in it as I figured soon or later that would come back to bit me, and it would be nice to know where/when it was used.
After cross compiling a linux kernel for ARM (this could have been before erasing mman.h I don't remember), I was just going to build the modules for my cross compiled ARM/linux kernel. Anyway, that's where I first saw this header /usr/include/sys/mman.h try to be used.
after typing "locate mman.h" I found that they existed all over the place and had many of them on my machine. Thought it's clear it has something to do with memory management, they are all radically different.
I have tried "substituting" but so far, the thing still won't build and all errors point back to not having the right /usr/include/sys/m
Where does bloat come from?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 16, 2010
I hear this thrown around a lot and how Ubuntu comes with it, but where does it come from. As in are you guys saying that having several programs on your computer is bloat, or applications running that use system resources, or UI designs or something? What is bloat to you?
