  1. what is the question... do you want fail over?
  2. just on battery. and it is an issue on all OS with specific hard drives (Ie Windows..) . not just Ubuntu, as these are the default setting from the hard drive manufacture.
  3. is it slow running from a captured partition on a NTFS partition ?
  4. did you choose LPT #1 as your parallel port in setting it up, remember that a parallel port is not plug-n-plan. windows sees the printer because you installed the driver.
  5. PXE is a standard for booting a OS from a network, and most BIOS are already setup to do this http://syslinux.zytor.com/pxe.php http://www.2x.com/pxes/ (this has the server in it)
  6. there are many languages and any would work, I would use a Pic processor to grab what ever information and send it over serial (need usb to serial converter) then pick a language you like java, mono(C#, VB, ironpython, boo), c++, objective C would all work, just pick one and read up on it.. this may help it uses java to read a serial port.. as for drawing graphes.. that is after you can do this much.. http://java.sun.com/developer/Books/javapr...cookbook/11.pdf
  7. http://www.cs.binghamton.edu/~reckert/360/7.html here is clipboard information for C# System.Windows.Forms.Clipboard.GetImage() should work
  8. did you install M4? http://www.gnu.org/software/m4/m4.html and if so then what program are you trying to build?
  9. Marty ,email makes no difference,your used to the way windows email clients can receive scripted email. there is no , and I mean no email program for Linux that you can do this with. also to do anything to your system the program would have to run sudo and then have your root password. as for finding K-Mail or Konquror open command shell and type the programs name in like kmail.. if that works you can then create an icon like hitest wrote before and for link just put the name of the program.
  10. this project is simple. you can use a basic stamp mac software for it http://www.muratnkonar.com/otherstuff/macbs2/ or just the microchip pic processor http://www.mactech.com/articles/mactech/Vo...ller/index.html in either case you have the "processor" send its output to a file, I would save it as csv then its up to you, but you could use excel at lest to graph it from a csv file or use nay other programing language to graph the output.. I say easy because use pic processors all the time , but hopefully I gave you enough information to get started. ps this is written with the mind set
  11. clamAV you can use the kbuntu install software and search for it, check it and install we need to know which email program to tell you how to integrate. since there are no know active viruses for Linux, you can put your mind at rest that your system will be ok, but its always good practice to help protect anyone from you forwarding on an email with a windows virus good link http://librenix.com/?inode=21
  12. try a live linux cd and run fsck on the disk.. it should fix any issues. you may have to run the fsck for your format type (fsck.ext2 for example) Name fsck - check and repair a Linux file system Synopsis fsck [ -sAVRTNP ] [ -C [ fd ] ] [ -t fstype ] [filesys ... ] [--] [ fs-specific-options ] Description fsck is used to check and optionally repair one or more Linux file systems. filesys can be a device name (e.g. /dev/hdc1, /dev/sdb2), a mount point (e.g. /, /usr, /home), or an ext2 label or UUID specifier (e.g. UUID=8868abf6-88c5-4a83-98b8-bfc24057f7bd or LABEL=root). Normally, the fsck pro
  13. I think that would be sdb1 (first partition on the drive ) also I think its vfat for fat 32 msdos is used for fat16 and older
  14. Deaf Girl, we need more information on which wireless card are you using? here is some starter reading http://www.linuxmint.com/forum/viewtopic.p...=wpa&t=3296
  15. I think its -f for Linux NAME tail - output the last part of files SYNOPSIS tail [OPTION]... [FILE]... DESCRIPTION Print the last 10 lines of each FILE to standard output. With more than one FILE, precede each with a header giving the file name. With no FILE, or when FILE is -, read standard input. Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too. --retry keep trying to open a file even if it is inaccessible when tail starts or if it becomes inaccessible later -- useful only with -f -c, --bytes=N output the last N bytes -f, --follow[={name|descriptor}]
  16. try this under media create a folder then try to mount it to that folder mount /dev/sdc1 /media/foldername at the same time tail -v /var/syslog I think its v anyways .. or maybe that is just unix.. you can try it with out the -v..
  17. would you not do a mount and see what the drive mounted is named then grep for the other.. also if the bigger drive is NTFS, I do not Believe that NTFS driveres are loaded by default in Ubuntu.. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=217009
  18. that is why I moved to http://www.beryl-project.org/, as if that happens you right click the diamond and tell it to restart the windows manager. it does not kill X but it does give you back window control. the issue is that computz is still alpha and crashes, but the default way of install gives you no way to restart cleanly.. also beryl lets you turn it on and off, useful for video player that have problems with the 3d desktop
  19. yes.. it runs on windows.. and has been rated as one of the top scanners.
  20. is it in /etc/rcS.d ? somethings like S19firestarter
  21. hmm, that could be the problem. the system does not start things in /etc/inint.d it runs scripts in the /etc/rc.d/ folder depending on startup level RC3 is normaly network for Linux so it would be /etc/rc.d/rc3.d also your script Should start with a "S" to signify startup as "K" is shutdown and a number to show boot order example S29FireStarter would execute at startup after script < 28 when firestarter what installed it should have put in a boot script and then you softlink it to /etc/init.d note ubuntu and debian use /etc/rcS.d/ as its initiation folder so you may be stepping on the
  22. try this command when it looks like it is not running udo /etc/init.d/firestarter status
  23. I see the downside of this.. Since it installs as a file not a partition, Which sorry to say, used to be Computers 101 if your windows partition fails you loose windows and Linux, also it will be slower than a partition as you are using a file that the OS handles writes and not a partition the Drive handles. your file can become fragmented making it much slower, while a Linux partition using modern File systems do not fragment as much as NTFS and even if it did the entire partition would not fragment unlike the file.
  24. ps -ef as root or just see of firestarter is running ps -ef | grep firestarter top will also show you processes, but if firestarter is not in the top 10 - 15 you may not see it.
