09:41 < garo> Does openbsd have the same kernel as freebsd, just like all the linux distros have the same kernel ?

10:02 < voidz0r> ok,
10:03 < voidz0r> now i made an extra partition 'd'
10:03 < voidz0r> and it asks where to mount it, and defaults to /home
10:03 < voidz0r> as i entered in disklabel
10:03 < voidz0r> but pressing enter or typing '/home' just makes it ask again
10:03 < voidz0r> so strange
10:03 < cuga> type 'done' like it says

I'm using linux all the time (as a root) and no one can use my computer
other than me that's why I found typing my user name (root) and the
password too boring can you give me the way (if there is )for using linux
without typing them
Thank you

THE TOPIC ON THE FORUM: uh-oh, I think something bad happened to my slack box...
George Harrison wrote: Now this could be just my fault or I might have been cracked, I haven't any idea at this point. Lemme start off at the beginning though: Things were going great for me, I found my home with Slackware 10.1 and I put on slapt-get and things were going quite well. Then I sort of figured out how to use pkgtool, I went to linuxpackages.net and I downloaded firefox 1.0.6 for i686 and I went in as root and did makepkg firefox.tgz and installpkg firefox.tgz and it looked like it was going well it then asked me if I wanted it exclusively have this package under "root.root" or something, I was doing this resonably late last night so I said yes and it was finished afterwards I went to bed (forgot to turn computer off). I wake up this morning and click on the terminal on the kicker to try to launch Firefox from it but it just says "cannot open /home/commandercool/kicker/terminal it has been malformatted" (example, and no my user is not commander cool, I just thought it would be funny to put that in there). It seems as though all the kicker icons were malformatted and I everything from the start menu refused to launch. I kill X, exit out and try to log in as user "cannot cd into /home/commandercool" umm.. ok now I'm getting worried, so let's try root
"login: root"
AHH!! In a panicked rush I format and threw Debian on my box, I don't know what happened. Was this my fault for putting everything as root for the pkgtool question? If so why was I not able to log in as root? I was not running a server at all, I dunno what happened here.

bigtomrodney: I would imagine sharing /home as long as there are seperate users would be okay, as long as you used a filesystem that both could read (ext3 maybe?). As for sharing /usr/local....I'm not sure. If all of an application was completely contained it may work, but I think it would be more likely to break something else.

I decided to log out to end the session and start over, but when i tried to log back in KDE wouldn't start and i got this:
Could not start kstartupconfig. Check your installation
I logged in using KWFV (i think thats what its called) as the session type and created a new user. I could then log into KDE as this new user but couldn't figure anything out.
Is this royally messed up or what? How can i get my profile back, and log into KDE? If anyone can point me into the right direction as to what i can do, i would be eternally grateful. I'd even buy someone a car if i could afford it!
