17:48 < achandrashekar> hello. does MDK have an easy way to configure cups, banners and allow lpd jobs to be accepted by the cups server?
17:49 < irbdavid> achandrashekar, you can do basig config from mandrake control centre
17:49 < rickest> achandrashekar: you tried localhost:631?
17:50 < irbdavid> kde control centre has a good admin tool for cups. but in my experience it doesnt detect printers very well
17:50 < achandrashekar> heres the deal, i had a RH box, and the config tool steps all over the port 631 install, rewrites the darm file each time. I
gotta get one that is easy for winblows guys to use easily.
17:51 < achandrashekar> and adding ppd files- does the admin tool via web and config tool see the same added ppd file?
17:51 < Nate_Grey> achandrashekar download mandrake and try it
17:52 < achandrashekar> be glad too..but i got a time crunch. just needed to know if some one has setup cups to accept remote lpd requests and doene it
17:52 < achandrashekar> easily defined- not having to mess with files and use gui..yeah i know...
17:56 < danc3> achandrashekar: yes I've done it a hundred times

23:15 < Zotnix> Many told me running gentoo on ~x86 (unstable) is bad but it isn't that horrid at all.
23:16 < bomber> 1st i hear that Zotnix
23:16 < Gumby`> ditto
23:16 < bomber> i hear raves all the time
23:17 < Zotnix> Hrm. See 10.1 is coming around.
23:18 < dewey> Zotnix: I am testing 10.1 rc1 with cooker updates :)
23:18 < dewey> so far so good but I would not install it on a production puter yet.
23:20 < Zotnix> Ah... how up to date is the software?
23:20 < Zotnix> I remember usign Debian and even in unstable a lot of packages were way behind.
23:22 < DESmack> i like the fact th mandrake has a big focus on good hardware support..
23:26 < dewey> Zotnix: it is update as much as possible~!
23:28 < Zotnix> okay. I've used several distros. Just trying another now ;)

15:20 < ruslug902> I want to install rh8 on my laptop.. Ive been able to install rh9 and suse9
15:20 < ruslug902> but not rh8
15:20 < ruslug902> cus its get stuck when it checks the hda partition
15:20 < ruslug902> is there a way around it checking the hda parition?
15:23 < ruslug902> hello?
18:23 < ruslug078> how do i see my hard drive paritions?

00:06 < greatscot> Any idea why my file associations keep getting reset to the defaults?
00:09 < DoppelGanger> file associations isn't that a windows thing

00:16 < mlalkaka> hi
00:16 < mlalkaka> how can i browse my network for nfs shares?
00:17 < mlalkaka> is there a program for that (preferably gui)?
00:17 < crash3m> nmap-fe and hit the nfs ports
00:17 < crash3m> I dont know of a way to list shares
00:17 < Haesslich> mcc has a module for it
00:17 < Haesslich> and konqueror will do it
00:18 < Haesslich> but the preferred way is of course to mount those shares into your fs
00:18 * DoppelGanger shakes head ah linux users today
00:18 < mlalkaka> Haesslich: how can i do that?
00:19 < DoppelGanger> man mount
00:19 < Haesslich> mount -t nfs server:/path/to/share /mnt/whatever
01:29 < aguzman> ok the other question was, If I dont want to launch the graphic environment when the system starts, what is the command if at a later
time I want to bring up the graphical environment?
01:30 < crash3m> startx starts the gui yes, but not on boot
01:31 < crash3m> I probably misinterpreted your question
01:31 < aguzman> no, is that im not an expert
01:32 < aguzman> ok so I changin the runlevel from 5 to 3 will boot with no graphical environment
01:32 < crash3m> correct
01:32 < aguzman> then how do I start x windows if I want while im doing something
01:33 < crash3m> startx
01:33 < aguzman> ok

10:12 < Alakazam> yea
10:13 < Alakazam> i have a lot of problems with freebsd it seems.
10:13 < irbdavid> HauntedUnix, can always use as opportunity to rip higher quality
