18:39 < LiteHedded> is menudrake a mandrake only thing?
18:39 < LiteHedded> sounds like it
18:40 <@Hawkwind> Yes
18:40 < ldb> ok
18:40 < LiteHedded> what about my friend on suse?
18:40 < LiteHedded> is there a universal way to do it on KDE?
18:40 <@Hawkwind> I couldn't tell ya, I don't use KDE

23:03 < noobtesting> moonie: yes I am
23:03 < noobtesting> moonie: it is formatted in ntfs if that makes a difference
23:03 <@moonie> noobtesting, shouldn't, what tool are you using? (mcc, parted what)
23:04 < noobtesting> moonie: I am in the console rooted using fdisk
23:05 <@moonie> noobtesting, why not use mcc, works great from cli

damaging the other OSs? will it update my GRUB? or will it recreate it? if yes, will it include my SuSe, too?
10:25 < SporcusPorcus> will it cure cancer anyone
10:25 < cbpye> random slackware user here, just saying that so far, I'm very impressed with Mandrake.
10:26 < SporcusPorcus> cbpye: you scare me
10:27 < cbpye> well, it is rather nice so far... I kinda miss having to configure xorg.conf by hand...
10:27 < cbpye> wait, no I don't...
10:28 < SporcusPorcus> cbpye: and how long have you used slackware
10:28 < cbpye> about a year.
10:28 < cbpye> maybe longer
10:29 < SporcusPorcus> maybe you don't even know how long your using something, anyways why the switch if you don't mind me
10:29 < Osato> no idea about multiple boot??
10:30 < cbpye> not a switch or a multiple boot scenario here. I'm still using slack at home, I'm just trying a different desktop distro

11:43 < SporcusPorcus> he eh we2by um dunno
11:43 < we2by> LSD`, isn't it used if u have multi cpu?
11:44 < we2by> like a p4 with htt?
11:44 < LSD`> we2by: why not roll your own kernel instead of installing didgy shit from manrape?
11:44 < SporcusPorcus> ha ha
11:44 < tank__> lol
11:44 < we2by> roll my own kernel. u mean recompile it?
11:44 < we2by> :\
11:44 < LSD`> we2by: yeah, it's not hard
11:44 < we2by> I'm a newbie
11:44 < LSD`> and it'll probably work better than that manrape kernel
11:44 < tank__> yes just grab the latest from kernel.org

11:45 < LSD`> kudzubane: mandrake
11:45 < kudzubane> LSD`, ah
11:45 < SporcusPorcus> well considering how mandrake functions it might have many problems with a vanilla kernel

anyone know of unusual procs that may be slowing me down? any advice would help!
13:55 < illogic-al> N30M1k0, yes
13:55 < illogic-al> openoffice
13:57 < illogic-al> N30M1k0, I advise you get more ram
13:57 < N30M1k0> i use this business so i need some typ of software to do those things
13:57 < N30M1k0> agreed on ram
13:57 < illogic-al> N30M1k0, it's as fast as it's going to go if you're going to be using OO.o
13:58 < N30M1k0> is there something else you'd rec
13:58 < illogic-al> you can increase your swap space if it's < 512 mb
13:59 < N30M1k0> its worth a try
13:59 < illogic-al> and if you're using KDE or Gnome you can try switching to fluxbox
13:59 < illogic-al> or openbox
14:00 < illogic-al> or any of the other *boxes (window managers) out there
14:00 < HauntedUnix> and try not to use 256k of ram, that's really not alot ;)
14:02 < illogic-al> N30M1k0 agreed on ram :-)
14:03 < N30M1k0> whoa i just realized what i typed its 256 mb not k
14:03 < SporcusPorcus> 256 is alot of ram imho
14:03 < illogic-al> N30M1k0, lol
14:03 < illogic-al> SporcusPorcus, um. no.
14:04 < SporcusPorcus> ah ah um yes
14:04 < illogic-al> "alot" of ram is > 1 gig
14:04 < SporcusPorcus> 256 is a lot of ram
14:04 < illogic-al> a sufficient amount is 256 mb
14:05 < SporcusPorcus> i think he means 256 mb not k
14:05 < illogic-al> SporcusPorcus, that the minimum requirement for lots of apps nowadays so it isn't a lot by any stretch of the imagination
14:05 < SporcusPorcus> since no p3 would be shittping with 256kb
14:05 < SporcusPorcus> doh shipping
14:05 < illogic-al> lol
14:05 < HauntedUnix> SporcusPorcus: I said k.

22:07 < bobbyd> ok thanks
22:12 < bobbyd> is there an easy way to install the source for my current kernel?

22:15 < SporcusPorcus> bobbyd: what kernel are you running
22:15 * SporcusPorcus plays a game
22:15 < Grangin_> you can tell what kernel you're running by typing uname -r

22:22 < bobbyd> I choose the latter
22:22 < cyborg> I can ssh to my computer that works fine
22:22 < bobbyd> cyborg: sshd
22:22 < bobbyd> if you're running sshd then scp should work
22:22 < bobbyd> what happens?
22:23 < bobbyd> SporcusPorcus: were you suggesting I don't know what I'm doing?
22:23 < cyborg> i couldn't connect, im not really familar with the scp program but ill have another try
22:23 < bobbyd> SporcusPorcus: because that's a decent assesment
22:24 < bobbyd> cyborg: if you ssh like 'ssh you@yourbox' then you would scp like 'scp some_file you@yourbox:./'
22:25 < cyborg> yea the scp i downloading is a gui
22:25 < bobbyd> cyborg: try it from the command line, if that works then it's the config of your GUI tool

ability to edit a text file is not good or bad. It's ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY. And the ability to do so does not make you any better or worse
than anyone else. It just makes you a Linux user.
