  1. how to make a installation setup file?

    you can check out too.
  2. Gnome themes and root

    that's because you're still "acting" as the normal user, for instance the $USER env-variable is still the normal user. Use 'su -' instead to fully become root.
  3. How is this Deadlock?

    Quote:Original post by Erzengeldeslichtes Why would it release the locked objects? You haven't told it to, and you might use it again after your wait returns. You may also want to prevent people from changing your number because you're making an assumption about it later on. The system isn't psychic (yet), so it can't know your intentions. Make your intentions clear by unlocking objects which don't need to be locked. actually it does release it: Quote:from the javadoc of Object.wait() The current thread must own this object's monitor. The thread releases ownership of this monitor and waits until another thread notifies threads waiting on this object's monitor to wake up either through a call to the notify method or the notifyAll method. The thread then waits until it can re-obtain ownership of the monitor and resumes execution. Further I can't see any deadlocks in the code, however it will never terminate since the TurnPrinter will end in a wait-state. /Nico
  4. Setting up a network

    Quote:Original post by Palidine equipment: you'll need either a hub or a crossover cable to connect the XP machine and the Linux box (a standard ethernet cable will _not_ work to connect 2 computers directly) actually almost all newer NICs doesn't need crossover-cables, they have automatic crossover detection, and will do the cross internaly. /Nico
  5. VNC Server on Fedora Core 5 issue (regarding X/gnome)

    Gnome has, as the AP says, a remote desktop feature which uses VNC. You can turn it on through: Desktop->Preferences->Remote Desktop /Nico
  6. SSH Help!!

    Quote:Original post by Telastyn Note that modern ssh generally comes with two protocol versions, 1 and 2; and they use different keys. IIRC rsa is for version one, and would then require the Protocol line to read Protocol 1,2 to try 1 and fallback to two. not that this will add much to the OP, but the order of the versions on the Protocol line does not matter. from 'man sshd_config': Protocol Specifies the protocol versions sshd supports. The possible values are '1' and '2'. Multiple versions must be comma-separated. The default is '2,1'. Note that the order of the protocol list does not indicate preference, because the client selects among multiple protocol versions offered by the server. Specifying '2,1' is identical to '1,2'. /Nico
  7. Linux and Laptops

    I have a ThinkPad T41, and everything works perfectly, except for TV-out.
  8. Functional programming books.

    I found Simon Thompson's Haskell: The Craft of Functional Programming to be an excellent book. And I could recommend both Practical Common Lisp and ANSI Common Lisp, especially the latter that's the one that I used when learning lisp. /Nico [Edited by - NicoDeLuciferi on December 21, 2005 7:22:57 AM]
  9. It sounds like a harddrive error. check the output of 'mount', I'm guessing the hardrive is actually mounted as 'ro'. If it is try remounting it as rw, like this: 'mount -o remount,rw /dev/hdb1' /Nico
  10. Must return a value

    You can use '-pedantic-errors' but that implies '-pedantic' which you might not want, but I will convert warnings to errors. /Nico
  11. Linux C++ Using Emacs -- Need compiler

    Quote:Original post by RichardS As someone who uses emacs a lot, ... then the advantages of a console editor diminish a bit. I highly suggest you start out using a GUI editor ... Well, emacs is a GUI editor.. Quote:Original post by nethackpro And I couldn't help but notice you are only using cout. It's good practice to using namespace std that way you have access to all the iostream functions. this is necessarily not true, why "include" the whole namespace when you only need one function? /Nico
  12. Neural networks: hidden Layer Bias

    the bias is needed to be able to solve problems that is not linearly seperable. /Nico
  13. Linux Media Player Suggestion

    no it has a gui, well can have at least it depends on the compilation options. You run it with gmplayer, if that symlink doesn't already exists, create it. /Nico
  14. Getting bash to clear the command line.

    ctrl-l is clear screen in bash, and it's redraw-screen in ncurses. /Nico
  15. Linux Media Player Suggestion

    mplayer, is the way to go
