    Rather than reinstalling a system from scratch, my method of ensuring that a system is clean is to create statically compiled binaries of chkrootkit and store them on a separate drive (typically a...

    Linux N95 Bluetooth Connection

    Hi Guys,

    I'm back and out of the dribble-factory but I've not been inactive. I've successfully managed to get my Nokia N95 talking to my laptop over Bluetooth and I can engage the modem remotely....

    From your description, this would prompt me to make a call about a hardware fault. If badblocks has passed then there is not a problem with your hard drive. If memtest (available on the Ubuntu live...

    I don't use badblocks, but I do use encryption. It's dead easy on Lenny since there's a command for generating the keys (AES256 v3 - 65 different keys) and you can pipe the output of dd through...

    I run an encrypted system that boots HDA1 natively into XP and the Linux partitions are hidden from view by not even being referenced in the partition table. Linux itself, on my laptop, boots from...

    Far from being the oldest, but 8 years isn't a bad time. God only knows where I was when I joined here! And I don't want to know, either!

    I've tried to do this stuff ages ago and I had no problems simply doing the IP_FORWARD stuff. However, I've also tried it recently and it doesn't seem to work anymore.

    I suspect that changes have...

    I'm using an Atheros AR5212 under Debian Stable (Lenny) and after ripping out the crap Intel card that was in there and rebooting, it was up and running automatically.

    That's all with the stock...

    You could evade the problem and use XFS which I'm now using since ReiserFS is too dated for a modern system (IMHO) and won't get updated after Hans Reiser is (ahem) "being punished".

    So far, I've...

    Not sure about Yahoo! accounts, but some mailservers reject e-mail from ADSL connections and dynamic IPs because of the Spam problems. I use my own mailserver and it works perfectly. I've never had...

    Not entirely sure if this will work. Anyway, it's inadvisable for the same reasons people argue about logging in as root.

    I think the Linux security model will prevent anyone without an effective...

    I've had this problem before as well - it's NOT recommended, but the only way I could mount an NTFS filesystem RW was to use the --force option. I never experienced any problems but I do suspect that...

    I run my own mailserver and I'm running a Core2 Quad Q6600 system with only 2GB of RAM.

    The spec you've put out for is ridiculously over the top for even 20 mailboxes. You could run your system...

    I'll echo techwise and say that trying to get an identical hard drive and swapping the boards MAY save you in this case.

    I don't want to sound condescending here, but I've had a LOT of hard drives...

    I've had this one before. I use a Lenovo/IBM T42 (just got my T42p today!!!) and the problem is the hard drive.

    As happybunny said, Linux cannot be infected by Windows viruses. As a "normal" user (as opposed to root), the worst you could do to your system is flatten your own homeshare.

    Nothing in your logs springs to mind, but the "Message Rejected" because of "Relaying" permissions indicate that you are not authenticated nor sending a message to a domain that the server hosts.

    OK. After cat'ting 1 billion copies of "Test" into /var/log/syslog I managed to get the file up to 2.2Gb. It never went over your 2.5Gb "limit" but the staggering amount of logging information really...

    You could also create your own DNS server or your could add your DNS resolving servers statically. The file in the latter case is /etc/resolv.conf - editing /etc/dhcpcd.conf allows you to prepend,...

    OK, I'll bite.

    I'll cat 1 billion lines into /etc/syslogd and see if that makes any effect on my system. The system is coming down and moving tomorrow anyway, so I can clean the logs up and carry...

    True comments - the motherboard itself uses the Intel ICH8 controller. I appreciate that simply using AHCI doesn't mean that hot-plugging will work, but if anyone uses the ICH8 chipset for the SATA...
