  8. OMG that is awesome. I wish i had thought of that. If it wouldnt make me feel like a complete poser ganker, i would add a section like that to my site.
  9. ok y'all, open up a term and type 'uptime' post it here. mine is 09:29:07 up 1 day, 15:46, 1 user, load average: 1.23, 1.11, 1.02
  10. that's from your /usr/local/etc/kismet.conf the fatal error is that kismet cant open up the log that you are trying to write to... This usually means that you logtemplate is incorrect. mine is always /home/bland/stuff/kismet_logs/ so that would be logtemplate=%h/stuff/kismet_logs/%n-%d-%i.%l hope that helps also
  11. nah, this isnt a big deal at all. sometimes when a program runs, it runs as a user's level. So if you're running, say, xmms, gnome, and aterm, and you hit users, its likely that you would get your user name 4 or 5 times.
  12. i got rid of some of the extranious packages on my slack 9.1 full install, i thought i would share the ones i got rid of just in case yall wanted to thin out yours as well a2ps-4.13b-i386-2 - adobe to postscript converter abiword-2.0.2-i486-1 - bloated word processor amp-0.7.6-i386-1 - command-line mp3 player apsfilter-7.2.5-i386-2 postscript printing software aspell- - spell checker aspell-en-0.51_0-noarch-1 - spell checker bitchx-1.0c19-i486-4 - irc client cdrdao-1.1.7-i386-1 - cdr tools cdrtools-2.00.3-i486-1 - cdr tools cups-1.1.20-i486-1 - printer stuff curl-7.10.7-i486-1 - command-line http put prog dvd+rw-tools- - dvd rw tools enscript-1.6.3-i386-1 - text converter fetchmail-6.2.5-i486-1 - mail client frozen_bubble-1.0.0-i686-4jto - game gnopernicus-0.7.0-i486-2 - gnome for blind people gnuplot-3.7.3-i386-1 - plotter software gv-3.5.8-i386-1 - pdf viewer ispell-3.2.06-i386-1 - spell checker jed-0.99_16-i486-1 - text editor jove- - emacs clone lftp-2.6.10-i486-1 - gftp clone mc-4.6.0-i386-1 - file manager mpeg2dec - mpeg2 tuner mt-st-0.7-i386-1 - tape drive software mysql-4.0.17-i486-1 - uhhh, its SQL nail-10.6-i486-1 - command-line mail sender ncftp-3.1.6-i486-1 - ftp software netwatch-1.0a-i386-1 - sniffer newspost-2.1.1-i486-1 - netews poster nn-6.6.4-i386-1 - netnews poster p2c-1.21alpha2-i386-1 - pascal to C converter pengaol - aol for linux (testing a package i made for someone) pilot-link-0.11.8-i486-2 - synch prog for palm devices popa3d-0.6.3-i486-1 - pop3 server procmail-3.15.2-i386-1 - mail reader rdist-6.1.5-i386-1 - distributed file system tools rexima-1.2-i386-1 - curses-based audio mixer sendmail-8.12.11-i486-1 - uhh... sendmail sendmail-cf-8.12.11-noarch-1 - yes, that sendmail seyon-2.20c-i386-2 - X11 phone tool slrn- - newsreader tin-1.6.1-i486-1 - newsreader trn-3.6-i386-1 - newsreader workbone-2.40-i386-3 - command-line CD player xfig-3.2.3d-i386-1 - grapics editor xv-3.10a-i386-1 - image viewer

  14. well, i know 2 qwest customers: dual, and zapperlink. One of them is, well, displeased with his qwest experiences (listen to RFA tonight). And the other wants to firebomb them... so im pretty sure theres some sort of catch in there somewhere.
  15. ttttttttttttttttttrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiiiiiittttttttttttttttooooooooooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
  16. first off, i pinned this thread so people can see it better I also moved it to general hacking, becuase it is. i would totally LOVE for this to happen. Let me know what i can do.

  18. yeah, i was going to say.. "how come 'telnet to port 80' isnt on here?" thats my browser of choice
  19. d a l l a s up in this piece
  20. correct. cfdisk is what i use for all of my linux partitioning needs, and as long as you tell it to write the changes, everything works like it should.
  21. in all honesty, i've been answering this question for a LONG time. The first person i had to answer it to was myself. I have tried just about every major and minor non-server distro, and i like slackware 9.1. I also like redhat 9.0, but redhat will stop supporting it in like april. "What's the best linux distro?" == "what's your favorite song?" It's one of those questions that you have to answer for yourself man. Just play with a bunch of them and see what you like best.
  22. well, it looks pretty good to me, but there are some things you need to consider before you just start plugging packages into your box. CAVEAT: I dont know how 1337 you are with nix / slack, im not insulting you here if i talk under your knees, im just answering a question. make sure that it is compiled how you want it. Sometimes these things are just straight compiled with no frills to make sure it is optimized for a broad amount of machines. Example, I have gnome installed on my box, but not KDE. So when i compile flux from hand, i compile it --with-gnome --without-KDE (or however the syntax goes, i dont have TFM in front of me). also, some of the more elegant compile options may be lost on a flat package. --with-x and --with-render are very good features (allow transparency in menus and what not). but not all systems will run well with these options, so they are a bad idea when making a package for the masses. At its heart, flux is made for systems with less than bleeding edge hardware, so all of the cosmetic compile options are not default. I do not claim to know everything about package management or anything, but im sure there is a way to create the makefile how you want, then make yourself a package to install. The benefits of going through all that headache are that next month when the next devel version is made, all you have to do is removepkg -fluxbox then you are ready to rock for your new version.
  23. ill take option 2. and if you need stress testing, i have 2 boxen that i can hook up for however long you need
  24. i scoured the earth for about 6 months looking for a hard copy of these books. If you know where to get them, tell me now.
  25. <mr rogers> can you say tasty? I knew you could </mr rogers>
