first let me describe the setup I have.
I have an G3 ibook running 10.3.9 using an airport card which is
connected to a Netgear router. The Desktop is running Fedora 4 and is
connected to the router via an ethernet cable. Firewalls are turned off
and I'm using samba, To cap this off I am rather new to Linux and
Using the desktop I can see my home directory on the ibook and do
everything I want (that part is great)
while on the ibook I can connect to the Desktop I can ssh, ftp with no
problem but I can not see the home directory on the desktop. Every now
and then I see in the Network folder an icon for the desktop computer
but it's faded and when I click on it I get "The alias "ODEN" could not
be opened, because the original item cannot be found" when I try to
connect to the server with the address smb://username@ipaddress/share I
get "could not connect to server because the name or password is not
I have searched the net looking for an answer, but I guess the problem
is with me and not a bug because it seems I am the only person who has
Any ideas on how this idiot can fix it ... :)
Anyone know of a package or product that can do this. I'm hoping to install a
package that can emulate SCO-ANSI to telnet into a legacy app machine and
replace some dumb terminals with LTSP clients.

Little Linux tip, if you're not sure what a file is, use the file
~]$ file /etc/ssh/sshd_config
/etc/ssh/sshd_config: ASCII English text
### or an executable ###
~]$ file /usr/bin/ssh
/usr/bin/ssh: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV),
for GNU/Linux 2.2.5, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped
### or a gif for example ###
~]$ file /var/www/icons/php.gif
/var/www/icons/php.gif: GIF image data, version 89a, 120 x 64
Its not perfect, but it'll give you a good idea.
After an update to X11 I had some errors in the
gnome desktop, and canceled the restart of some items
when they failed to start.
Since that time I find that when I minimize a
window, I can't get it back again.
Does anyone have any ideas what I need to get
Thanks for your help.

I tried to 'ymu remove firefox' but received hereafter errors.
Now 'yum list installed firefox' indicates wrongly that firefox is already

I have a core 3 install I started installing sql-ledger on a few months
ago. Today I started working with it again and cannot start apache without
getting errors. I can't remember if I had ever started apache prior to
this, so I am not sure if the problem came from working with sql-ledger.
Is there a way to fix this, or should I start over with apache? When I did
the server install I thought I included just about every module offered.

I am very happy with the kernels from Matthias Hensler:
But you do have to install them one by one.
Works for me.
