I looked at your IP to see what kind of router you had.
It appears to be supplied by your ISP, because telnet showed:
Sawtooth Technologies, LLC Stevenson, WA Unauthorized Access is Prohibited
gw-sawtooth.pdx.rain.net 98.10.20-0 For Service Call +1 509 427-4865
Sawtooth Technologies Ether 22.214.171.124 PL/DHGL/109201/ELG 126.96.36.199
So you may need to call them to get the password or to forward port 22
I know the proccess has been covered to death in this list, but has anyone
taken the time to write a tutorial explaining how to install the ATI
drivers (the ones for Radeon and up) from the ATI website?

I've heard a lot about biometrics, but the durned things cost over
$100 (consumer grade) and only seem to work for legacy software. The
cost isn't such a big deal, but the software sure is.
But in the bigger picture, biometrics isn't enough. I know there'll
be a couple of cocky jerks who'll tell you (and me) at great lengths how
stupid the idea is, mostly because they've not looked down the road as
far as I have. Remember the GPG keys on repos and how that wasn't
Keyfobs. These little USB droplets of cyberspace. How about we, as
one of the largest collections of Linux people out there, standardize
some software to fit into PAM to do this:
1. Upon insertion, ask for the passphrase a'la local-agent.
2. When validated, use these credentials for everything.
Sounds like a simple idea, but for some reason the powers that be
can't seem to 'get off the pot' and placate hundreds of vendors to
define a standard. Standards are what we're about. Let's make our
own. When the money stops flying and things get tight, we'll allow'em
to use our own.
1. Web browsing with the key: It needs to unlock the password
storage there. I don't think this is a big deal, but I doubt anyone's
written anything like it yet. I suppose this'll require help from the
Mozilla team, mostly.
If a Linux guy with a key is browsing, how about the Linux server on
the other side accepting this as authentication? (For existing accounts,
2. GDM and logins: this might have to be modified, aye? It would
have to be authenticated before the login. And the name given the login
(username) would have to come from somewhere, no?)
Think of how messed up this whole thing is: every site you have
another password to be lost, every machine on which you work you do
too. People don't remember passwords- they get written down and never
changed. That's why an internal test of the NYT staff was able to crack
70-80% of their passwords just by studying the office area.
It's getting to the point that passwords are meaningless, and we're
only asking for more new ones. Let's change that direction.
What's it take? Do we start a group on Sourceforge? Is Redhat/et al
interested in pushing this? I don't care if Debian, Suse or SCO
doesn't support it; this is something _we_ can do, it's not hard- let's
do it. Let the rest of the world catch up to us.
Gentlemen: Start your flamethrowers! :>

I could use a small simple command line tool to encrypt/decrypt the
files on my USB pendrive, and it could be cool if it was small enough to
be on my pendrive also. And it has to work in both Linux and Windows
(probably to versions of same tool, or two tools that can
encrypt/decrypt the same files).
Does any of you guys know of such a tool, or have any ideas oh how to do
I've a network problem on my Fedora Core 1.
on my switch the 100 led is ok.
But if I make an mii-tool command I've this result :
eth0: 10 Mbit, full duplex, link ok
And it's bad. Why the led on my switch ok in 100 Mbit but mii-tool see
it with 10 Mbit ?
I've try this : mii-tool -v -A 100baseTx-FD
But no changes..
Thanks for help ;D
When it was more difficult, it worked: months ago, i compiled and
installed Cyrus-IMAPd on FC1 and had no issues with it.
Now, when it's simple, it does not work. On FC2, i can't convince Cyrus
to work. I can create the accounts, but Evo does not read the email
Anyone using Cyrus on FC2? What were the steps you took to make it work,
after installing the RPM?
My users like to keep 500 to 1000 messages in their mailboxes and
average about 500K per message (we are a talent management company, so
there is lots of multimedia being exchanged).
So far I have been running whatever came stock with FC1, so I have
Postfix with WU IMAP running in that standard UNIX mailbox mode.
Can I keep Postifix and just change it to Cyrus IMAP style mailboxes and
install Cyrus IMAP? Or do I have to start from scratch?
Fortunately I have only 10 users, so I will have to deal with about 10K
in messages and about 150 sub folders.
as seen there is not the old imapd in FC2, and it did install the cyrus-imap.
Ok, but, when I login I can not see any directory formerly created, INBOX is
And in documentation of cyrus I didn't find anything about that, I thought it
should run out of the box.
So: can someone give a hint, how I convert all /home/<user>/mail to cyrus,
which way I must go, that cyrus will display the INBOX for that user, and
them don't get a "permission denied" when try to create a folder?
Meanwhile I use dovecot, but there are some other problems, too. (filter via
procmail, in cyrus I would make it via sieve and so on)
