I am running Mandriva 2007.1 on a laptop. Evertime the lid is shut andopened, kdesktop_lock --force is running which forces me to enter mypassword. I DO NOT want this. HOw do I stop it from doing this to me?(Mandriva's nannying really gets annoying at times).
( I can still go to a console so that is how I determined what wasrunning.)

I am trying to get name based virtual hosting going for apache2/gentoo, but I only get served the default apache index page.
Added complications: I have to use a different port since I am on a home Cox account. My www.dyndns.com points pix.isa-geek.com:81 to my external Dynamic IP Address. I have URL redirection to this address (shadowed) for pix.dontexist.com as well. I am behind a linksys router with port 81 open and forwarded to my server (192.168.1.104).

I know that the FTDI FT232RL chip can go as 921600 baud, it works under windows hyperterm at that speed. GTKterm only offers up to 115200 baud when connected to this part. Is this a driver issue, or is the problem in GTKterm itself? If it's NOT a driver issue I'm tempted to look for the source for GTKterm and see if I can ramp up the baud rate selections.

I prefer GNOME, but I don't like the KDE icons in the SUSE's GNOME. As amater of fact, that is the thing i hate most in KDE. If i wanted towatch the KDE icons, I would probably choose KDE instead of GNOME. Thereis no such problem in Novell Linux Desktop, as I could see. Is there anywish list for the new OpenSUSE? I'd like to suggest that.
Thanks.

Hey there :) Really puzzled by this. I had md0 used for /, md1 used for /boot, andmd2 used for swap space. Worked fine.
Okay, so I'm setting up additional arrays using mdadm. I create md5, 6,7, and 8, and reboot just to make sure things are still up to code. Iget a shell as the system won't boot. I check out my arrays, andsuddenly md0 is no longer the old / array, but one of the newer ones,which aren't even formatted. So, I edit fstab to use LABEL=/ andLABEL=/boot instead of hard pa.... read more

I'm trying to configure my ifcfg-wlan1 card so that it can be detected but currently i'm having no luck at all! I don't have enough read permissions. I went to /etc/sysconfig/networks and tried using the chmod command to change permissions and it says that Permission denied. When i look at the file through 'My Computer' it has that padlock on it!! How can i change this? My linux is on a NTFS partition.
