(Re-posted, as original sems to havev gone astray...) Looking for a genealogy program for Mandriva (2007).
Having Googled, I've seen a reference to a port of Gramps to Mandriva, butMCC doesn't seem to know about it.
Also looked at the Gramps site, which said that - with Mandriva - one justdid urpmi gramps, but the response when I tried that was: No package named gramps (and I have 'contrib' as a source in urpmi setup).
Ideas welcome!

I run SuSE 8.2. I loaded both KDE and Gnome. A few days ago, I tried usethe Gnome desktop and found I could not -- suddenly no gnome entry on theKDE login window. I also tried to log on as root, using KDE. No go. TheKDE menu (which stated KDE) opened up another provider's desktop.
Something odd has happened. Has anyone a hint as to what might havehappened and how I might set about to fix it? dj tuchler

Hello, I got an automatic update of the X packages on my Debian machine lastnight and it has made my system not work. I have tried to generatea new XF86Config in a number of ways but they all fail in the same way.
For instance, I used XFree86 -configurefollowed by XFree86 -xf86config /root/XF86Config.newand I get a gray screen (actually, I have to first adjust the mousesection to use /dev/psaux and the PS/2 protocol). I figure that I'min business. I then cp /root/XF86Config.new /etc.... read more

Fellow SuSE(rs), Below is an email I sent to SuSE programmers about issues I felt had to be handled, but they did nothing. Read and tell me what you think. I have also attached the graphics explaining my gripes. I am no programmer otherwise I'd have fixed these long ago.
(Update) I sent this long ago but the message did not get through. So I remove the attachments and leave the message.

I created a symlink from /usr/bin/last to lastb - slackware doesn't have one? Did it ever? Or did I break something? Am I the only one who's ever used it? :) Ray(still learning one new thing every day...)

I clicked on the clock to bring up the calendar.
There is a field at the bottom showing the date and a spin box showing 15.
The date is 18'th.
I wondered what it did.
I clicked on the down arrow and it highlighted each FRIDAY in each month despite the day being Sunday.
It ran back to 5 and then froze.
When I clicked on the clock to dismiss the calendar, I got a BSODblack screen of death.
I had to Crtl Alt Backspace to logon to the desktop again.
Isn't that strange?

I just set up a mailserver that serves imap and imaps. The distro is White Box Enterprise Linux. In the /etc/xinetd.d directory there are two files -- imap and imaps. The wierd thing is that the syntax is identical in both files. I'm used to the xinetd sections for secure protocols using stunnel. For example, this is the imaps setup on my OS X mailserver: service imaps{ socket_type = stream protocol = tcp wait = no user = root.... read more

installed in slack 10.2 after i built it from source. Now i can start the program if i log in x windows as root. but if i log in as a ordinary user i get 'command not found' when i type firestarter at the command line.
i guess this is something to do with rxw --- --- --- permissions, but can anyone tell me what file i need to change to allow this program to be started by a ordinary user account? thanks

Have just installed 10.1 and am very impressed with the speed and smoothlook. In 10.0 Nvidia drivers were available from Online Update, this seemsto be no longer the case? Before I attempt top follow the instructions on the Nvidia website, can someone tell me if there is a way to do it similar to the way it was in10.0? I can find no comments in the release notes as to why this haschanged.
