  1. Linux to Linux Samba Help

    I was recently put in charge of implementing a new server setup to the small business I work for. It was a nice upgrade from windows soho networking, and I got everything working better than expected except for one thing.... The setup is as follows - internet enters building and into a small server running ipcop - it hands out ip addresses, etc... and shares the internet connection via a 3com 24 port 10/100 switch. The file server is running Ubuntu Debian, and is working perfectly - all users work - I have everything setup properly. From that server I can map network shares, and all other computers can access the samba fileserver perfectly well. Each PC connects fine to each others local shares perfectly as well. Aside from the server my personal work PC is hte only one that runs linux. From my pc I can share folders via samba, and access all network shares perfectly well. The problem is the fileserver. I cannot mount it - I get read_socket_timeout_error protocol negotation failed. My pc and the server are using the exact same release of ubuntu... anyone know why the two can't communicate, although communication works fine everywhere else for fileshareing? I can't get a single answer from my buddy google...

  3. Diablo 2 under linux

    Actually - I play LOD alot still on linux. Follow this link as I stated before, as instructions to get it running are found there. http://www.frankscorner.org/index.php?p=diablo2
  4. Hey all, I have a PC that I took down to move when I bought a new house - when I took it down all was fine. When I got it all up and running at my new house it worked fine still except for one thing - gmail and google do not work - just an error like I have no internet connection. What is going on here - all other PCs work fine - my router is a cheap machine running IPCOP - pluggging into a different port on the switch does not change anything - is there anything I can do to figure out whats up?
  5. WINE

    http://www.frankscorner.org/ Thats an excellent site as well!
  6. Untitled thread

    That was one of the first search queries I tried. I can find information on the card, but not drivers. HP provided drivers, but I can't find them and I doubt that they would work without the xserver HP provides, but I'd be willing to use that instead of xorg if it meant that I could use the 3D capibilities of the card.
  7. Untitled thread

    Hey all, I ran across a computer the other day - I got it for free as it was dead. Opening it up I noticed a very cool videocard. The machine is an HP Visualize X-Class, and the videocard works fine. Some google research showed me that the videcard was an HP Visualize FX5, This card according to all my research had 4 dedicated opengl accelerators, hence the 4 massive heat sinks. HP used to provide an xserver and a kernel module driver, but all links to them seem to be broken. The card simpply gets detected as a Matrox MGA200, and the performance is terrible. I need to find some drivers for this card, and considering they were designed with linux support in mind I'd think this would be easy to find, and yet they are not at all, any suggestions?
  8. Need free first person shooter

    Free linux version of Wolfenstein is available here: http://ftp.freenet.de/pub/4players/hosted/et/official/et-linux-2.60.x86.mun But I usually still play cube!
  9. Wine problem

    What is the wine version? To find out just open a terminal and type wine If it is really recent there is no config file at all, instead make changes in the winecfg program.
  10. linux redhat with everquest and bf2

    Actually you don't have to pay - cedega has a free cvs, which is identical but missing all copy protection schemes that they have added. http://frankscorner.org/index.php?p=cedegacvs Everquest is a supported game and doesn't require copy protection to run it since the game isn't runnable without a legal copy registered online. This game should run flawlessly with cedega cvs. For Battlefield 2 it might be harder. First install with cedega cvs. Then go here: http://www.megagames.com/cracks/html/c916040_0.htm and download the appropriate nocd crack and apply it according to its instructions. At this point you may be able to play BF2 as well! Good luck.
  11. Weird Wierd Sound Problem

    I eventaully got it working but today its back to the same thing - I dodn't do anything as it just started working right randomly.. not sure why.
  12. Frustrated with no Network Connecting

    Alright - I hate to do this but did anyone see the screenshots? Obviously its not looking for a connect on eth0 or eth1 because it only lists lo and sit0 both have local ip addys. I think for him the solution is simple: open a terminal and type: ifconfig eth0 up and ifconfig eth1 up then he could type either ifup eth0 or ifup eth1 if the ifup command doesn't work he could do dhclient eth0 or dhclient eth1 No idea why the config tool isn't working right, but obvioulsy the commmand line part is not reading it - I'd bet thats his problem.

  15. sound recorder for GNU/Linux

    the answer is simple, Cheat! Go out to radio shack if you don't have the right cord, - the one with the headphone-like-jack at each end, and run it from the speaker output to the speaker input. If you have a good soundcard it will have two outputs and so you can still have your speakers hooked up to hear what you are playing. If not just get a stereo splitter. Its that easy. In fact its completely necessary when recording midi files into .wav or .avi since it can't just be converted afaik. good luck !
