    Looks like everything worked as expected, but you didn┤t put any data on
    the cd so just the session information was written to disc. you seem to
    have skipped the step where you select your data to burn.

    Well you said yours is happening occassionally? Mine was occurring all
    the time. I had a problem where when I had switched desktops that my
    Fonts directory somehow became corrupt. So, I had another RH9 box which
    I copied the directory from to fix the issue. Before ever starting X
    you can try to start xfs and check the output to see what type of errors
    it is getting. What messages did you have after your X closed and you
    where back to the main terminal? This will point you to the error.
    Give me a post and I'll try to help you out.

    I get the xfs error, i solved with runlevel 3, but want to know the
    source of the error ? Any idea.

    Also, one of the times you get the computer to start up. You can go to
    /etc/inittab and edit this file. Change this line id:5:initdefault: to
    id:3:initdefault: This will make your system boot to run level 3 (5 is
    Xwindows). Then you will have to type startx to launch X. Now when you
    have the problem you won't have to reboot, and you'll be able to see
    what error message the machine is getting. You may not be able to
    ALT-CTRL-BACKSPACE, but if you let the Xserver die, you'll have output
    on your terminal and you'll be able to track down your issue. This is
    what I ended up having to do. Mine was so bad I had to use my rescue
    disk to get in and change my files. Hope that helps.

    Maybe your disk is acting up and something is happening to the Xfont
    server xfs? I had a whacky issue with xfs. I also think that xfs slows
    X down on startup...(a lot). Has anyone set up X to use a set of paths
    instead of a unix socket for the X Fonts? This is something I wouldn't
    mind setting my machines up to do. It would be a performance enhancer.
    Can't imagine why running a Socket Server for fonts would be very useful
    (aka seperated from the X server?). Anyone else have any comments or
    ideas on the matter?

    I have never been able to get Opera 7.2.x to run on my RH8.0/9.0
    reliably. It hangs after running for 20 minutes or so. Then the only way
    to get rid of it is with xkill. so xStopped using it. If it worked
    better I think I would like it more than mozilla.

    As to writing just the session information.  I thought something like that

    I'm just so confused at this point.  I don't think the instructions in the

    Anyway as I said, thanks everyone.

    Under "Options", you can select "Default Write Options".  There is a
    known bug in cdrecord (for which xcdroast is a graphical front end), the
    workaround of which is to use "Disk-At-Once".  How is yours set up?

    I think the idea wasn't that bad people are only in Far Away Places,
    more that he wouldn't be doing fresh food deliveries to China or
    Europe.
    Yes, there is a Polish company that claims to have nearly a half
    million zombie Windows machines under its control, but many of those
    machines will prove to be in the US.
    I also think the conclusion was that trying to limit on geography was
    a bad idea.

    The reason I'm asking this question on this list is because it should be

    I'm having the compile time error thats listed in the DRBD FAQ here,

    programmer so I'm a little unsure on how to do this exactly.  My guess is
    that I copy this into a text file and use the patch command to patch the
    drbd source?  Maybe a command similar to this, "patch -p0 < patchfile",
    but I'm really not sure.

    Yup, that's right. Alternatively, you could replace the line that starts
    with the '-' sign and replace it with the one that starts with the '+' sign.

    I'm relatively new to bash so any help would be appreciated.
    I know what the local designator does;
    however in the assignment statement
    local base= user= nice= pid
    I'm not sure what is happening in terms of teh = sign.
    What does this mean.
    In addition, there is a ${pid:-}.
    I was expecting something after the -.
    What does this mean (is it returning the null value?)

    I've been having some trouble opening and closing ports. Basically, I
    want to close of all ports except 22 for ssh and 3 other ports to do
    some testing with openmosix. No matter what I do though, the ports
    that
    I want open stay closed and the ports that I want closed are open.
    (Mostly)
    Port       State       Service

    25/tcp     open        smtp

    Looks like I don't even have a firewall activated.
    redhat-config-securitylevel is set to medium. If I change it to hight
    the same ports are open. Trusted device is set to my network card
    (eth0)
    nothing is checked except ssh and dhcp. Like I said above, I want a
    couple other ports for open openmosix but, I have not "other ports"
    section using redhat-config-securitylevel.
    Other notes, I have iptables service enabled. It starts at boot. Also,
    I
    have tried to use iptables directly i.e iptables -A INPUT -p tcp ...

    You can use the Gimp, ksnapshot (if you have KDE installed) and many others
    I 
    cannot remember. Please search the list archive for other suggestions. This 
    has been asked many times before.

    I tried "Disk-At-Once".  This could be one of the options that makes it work

    many different ways that by now I'm hopelessly confused.  
    For example this morning everything seems to work, so far.  I created a 
    multi-session.  I think I forgot to check the option "Do not Fixate after 
    Write".  I'm saying I think because I also remembered setting that option 
    except it's not checked.  Anyway, I repeated the steps as yesterday.
    However 
    so far I have been added to add files to my CD.  Each time I add a file 
    through the the options shown on "Master Tracks" screen.  I "Update Session 
    View" then I switch to "Create session/image" and I "Master to Image file".
    As the result I now have several images, it seems, one for each time I 
    mastered an image.  The last one has a larger size.  I used that image and 
    wrote tracks using "Disk-At-Once".  The point of all this explanation is the
    same steps that didn't work at all yesterday seem to be working to day.
    Please excuse me for the long winded explanation.  I'm just confused and 
    frustrated.  :-/

    Reply-To: redhat-list@redhat.com
    Hi!
    I don't know whether this is the right place to ask, but kindly point me to 
    an FM that I can R if it isn't. Cross-posted to redhat-list and shrike-list.
    My wife is creating lots of Kazaa traffic, and I am using rsync to create a 
    full mirror of Red Hat's FTP site, Aurora Linux FTP site, the LDP site, and 
    some other stuff. Clearly, when one is moving well over 100GB over a 128 
    Kbps link, this is going to take a long time... but that's OK, we're in no 
    hurry.
    However, of course since the link is saturated then email downloads and web 
    browsing become dog-slow and frustrating. I could even live with mail being 
    really slow, but the HTTP traffic I really wish could be given some sort of 
    "high priority" so that I don't have to shut down the rsync transfer 
    temporarily when we're really using the Net at home.
    So really, happiness right now is just priority service for HTTP traffic. 
    Go to the head of the line, and all that, since everything else can take an 
    extra week to download without causing us any inconvenience.
    I have heard some terms thrown around, but have no knowledge yet. Is this 
    possible (I assume it is)? Is what I want traffic shaping, or quality of 
    service, or TCP flags... what is it? And, of course, is there something 
    somewhere that will tell me how to make it work?
    Thanks for any pointers,

    I played around with rsync sometime ago and remember that it has an option
    for 
    limiting bandwidth. I don't know if it really works, or how good it works, 
    etc. I tried it really quick for smaller bandwitdh and did not notice any 
    difference yet, but I might did something wrong. I had to drop the 'play 
    around with rsync' since other priorities came up. But you might want to
    take 
    a look at it, if you haven't. Of course, the FM is : man rsync
    I don't know 'bout Kazzaa though. 
    I'd like to know if the rsync option works for you, and would appreciate it
    if 
    you give us report back on what you do to achive this at some point later, 
    for the rest of us to learn :)

    You want QoS (Quality-of-Service) with PRIQ.  Check out the Advanced
    Routing HOWTO if you're a glutton for punishment, or the OpenBSD/PF/ALTQ
    FAQ if you really want it done with as little pain as possible.  ;-)
    I use this at home to a) prioritize upstream ACKs to optimize downloads,
    b) prioritize outbound DNS requests, and c) prioritize interactive SSH
    sessions.  Everything else brings up the rear.  Here's the relevant
    section from my pf.conf:
    ### Queueing ###
    altq on $ext_if priq bandwidth 225Kb queue { std_out, ssh_out, dns_out,
    tcp_ack_out }
    queue std_out           priq(red default)
    queue ssh_out           priority 4 priq(red)
    queue dns_out           priority 5 priq(red)
    queue tcp_ack_out       priority 6 priq(red)
    altq on $int_if cbq bandwidth 2Mb queue { std_in, ssh_in, dns_in }
    queue std_in            cbq(default)
    queue ssh_in            priority 4
    queue dns_in            priority 5
    Check out the following doc.  Even if you choose to use Linux's QoS
    instead, this will explain it much better than anything else I've seen.

    Reply-To: redhat-list@redhat.com
    i have my httpd.conf set up like this:
    <snip>
    # Custom ReWrite engine stuff
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteLog "/var/log/httpd/rewrite.log"
    RewriteLogLevel 9
    <snip>
    <VirtualHost host.mydomain.com:80>
    DocumentRoot "/var/www/html"
    <Files index>
        ForceType application/x-httpd-php
        RewriteEngine on
        RewriteRule (.*) /index.php?action=$1
    </Files>
    now, this works fine when i go to http://host.mydomain.com/index but when i
    browse to http://host.mydomain.com/option i get a page not found error.
    i'm pretty sure i've got the RewriteEngine working since Apache has created
    the rewrite.log but it's blank, and it's not working.
    anyone got any ideas what might be wrong?
    cheers
