    SANs - Anybody have a good link for a n00b to them?

    Been a long time since I've been here (12-22-2004 according to the last visited). Anyway, looking at implementing a SAN at a plant down in Kentucky. I'm a n00b when it comes to SAN's though. Can anyone recommend some good primers on the different technologies (iSCSI, fibre channel, whatever...

    Managed to snap two lightning pics...

    Managed to snap these two pics the other night of a lightning storm we had going on. Sadly, they were the only ones that actually got any bolts: And Just wanted to share them, as well ask for advice on trying to take pictures of lightning. In this case, it hadn't started...

    What window manager? Also, what file manager?

    Wondering what window manager and file manager you guys are using... Currently I'm using fluxbox for my window manager (absolutely love it), but haven't found anything that I really care for yet as far as file managers go (not that I've been looking real hard either). So looking for...

    Annoying Bootup Problem...soft of

    Hi everyone, Okay, the problem is annoying, but it's not really a boot up problem. Rather, it's a logging into the system problem. When I turn the box on, it boots up normally, then it goes into the graphical login, in this case kdm. After logging into the system, it automatically opens...

    Gentoo Desktop

    Just got done setting up a Gentoo Linux desktop system the other day, and I must say, I love it. This is really the first time I've gotten into the graphical side of Linux, and I rather enjoy it. It still can't replace my Windows box completely yet, but so far I'm liking it enough to make it...

    Finally up and running on Gentoo!

    Just wanted to say that I am finally completely up and running (sort of) on Gentoo. I've had the console done for a while now, but I just got the X/KDE done tonight. What a pain in the arse. Had mouse and KB problems, then I had to get the settings right for the resolution on the monitor...

    MySQL on a SPARC Linux?

    Hi guys, Maybe someone can answer this question for me, since I'm new to SQL and all this stuff. I was looking on the website to download MySQL 4.0 for my Gentoo box on the SPARC platform. Only trouble is, it's not there. Yet, from what I've been able to digest, it's supposed to exist...

    PowerDVD only allowing 2 speakers?

    Hi everyone, I just did a reinstall this week. Upgraded to Windows XP Pro from Windows 2000. So far, everything has been going relatively smoothly. There's bugs here and there that I'm working on trying to figure out. Anyway, one of them at the moment is with PowerDVD. When I had it...

    Okay, so Folding@Home won't work...

    ...on my Ultra 10 running Gentoo. So, other than Seti, what out there is worthwhile that I can crunch on that would work on Linux on a SPARC platform? While I believe other life forms are out there, I'd rather dedicate my CPU cycles to helping mankind, even if that means helping the scum of...

    Gentoo - Hopefully almost done!

    Wow.. What a debacle! I've spent most of my weekend compiling Gentoo on my Sun Ultra 10. Current specs for the box are UltraSparc IIi 333 MHz processor (think I got that right), 256 MB of RAM (looking to increase) and a 20 GB HD (also looking to add another). Using onboard NIC and video...

    Sun Ultra 10 - Which Linux distro?

    Hi guys (and gals, although I imagine there's few out there), Just picked myself up a free Sun Ultra 10. It's got an Ultra IIi 333 Mhz (or something like that), with 256 MB of RAM and a 20 GB HD. It's all IDE, as far as I can tell. Anyway, I am not a big fan of Solaris for some reason...

    Desktop Mods - How'd they do that

    Been a while since this thread has been up here, so I figured I'd give it a bump and thank everyone for the links and information. Should make my Windows experience a lot better.
