13:24 < Woody> MacDan: there is a guide inh the Mysql docs online for how to defeat the root password
13:24 < MacDan> *never use mysql*
13:24 < crash3m> postgresql ;)
13:25 < Woody> postgresql is more robust but a bigger pain in t\he ass
13:25 < MacDan> oh no
13:25 < MacDan> please don't tell me to go to damn documentation
13:25 < MacDan> i can't make heads or tails of it
13:25 < MacDan> and EVERYONE is telling me to do that
13:25 < Woody> MacDan: I can't remember all of the steps
13:26 < MacDan> i just want help from someone who has done it
13:26 < Woody> and the docs tell you exsactly how to do it step for step
13:26 < MacDan> ok...
13:26 < MacDan> which ones?
MacDan> MySQL said:
14:00 < MacDan> Cannot connect: invalid settings.
14:00 < shat> MacDan: 'service mysql status'
14:00 < MacDan> it says its all running
14:01 < Roobarb> it may be configured to use a unix socket instead of a tcp one
14:01 < MacDan> it is
14:01 < MacDan> because when i type 'mysql'
14:01 < Roobarb> well phpMyAdmin a) needs configuring to use the correct server and b) is designed to use tcp sockets
14:02 < MacDan> i get "ERROR 2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket 'var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)"
14:02 < shat> Yes, and phpMyAdmin is simple enough to configure, as long as you have MySWL configured properly
14:02 < MacDan> how do i change it to TCP Sockets then?
114:03 < shat> MacDan: good question :)
14:03 < Roobarb> MacDan: in the mysql config file
14:03 < MacDan> roobarb: wheres that?
NB:translation: Um I think its a file somewhere

13:38 -!- Stefan [~S@D5E0846D.kabel.telenet.be] has joined #mandrake
13:39 < Stefan> question, why I can't urpmi to kernel 2.6.5 or higher?
13:39 < HauntedUnix> Stefan: I believe the newest MDK kernel is 2.6.3-11? I'm not sure, mind
13:40 < Stefan> yes that's the one I have
13:40 < HauntedUnix> Stefan: that's the newst you can get via urpmi
13:40 < Stefan> but for my xawtv I need to use a patch
13:40 < HauntedUnix> if you just need to patch your kernel - you can recompile/
13:40 < Stefan> and that I can't have one with 2.6.3 ...
13:40 < Stefan> there are only patches from 2.4 or 2.6.5
13:41 < Stefan> or higher
13:41 < HauntedUnix> Stefan: then you can either use a 2.4 kernel, or you can upgrade manually to 2.6.5?
13:41 < Stefan> manually, yeah sure
13:41 < Stefan> I will use a 2.4
Stefan> patch
13:41 < Stefan> ah, kernel
13:41 < Stefan> no
13:42 < Stefan> I must upgrade my kernel to 2.6.3 so I can use gpl
13:42 < Stefan> from my nvidia graphic card
13:43 < Stefan> so I don't wanna go back
13:43 < Stefan> thx for the answer, I will wait until urpmi kernel 2.6.5 works

15:44 < dylan> chevdor: Mandrake...
15:46 < dylan> chevdor: what about making a toggle?
15:46 < dylan> so it runs one way the first time, one way the second
15:46 < dylan> then the first way again
15:46 < chevdor> dylan: whats the goal ?
15:46 < dylan> chevdor: my .asoundrc is incompatible with some games
15:47 < dylan> so I need to rename it, and kill the sound server
15:47 < vern> dylan: if you are trying to make a script then #bash may be of help too
15:47 < dylan> then game audio works
15:47 < dylan> but I want to go back when I'm done
15:47 < dylan> OK
15:47 < chevdor> dylan: why do you need to rename the file ? just stop the sound, start your game and start it afterwards
15:47 < dylan> chevdor: the .asoundrc needs to be renamed
15:48 -!- dylan [~dylan@c66-235-41-64.sea2.cablespeed.com] has quit ["Leaving"]
