18:37 -!- HyBriDJoKeR [UPP@dialup-4.152.111.196.Dial1.Atlanta1.Level3.net] has joined #linuxbeginner
18:39 * HyBriDJoKeR is pissed off at Linux
18:39 * HyBriDJoKeR for f'ing up his harddrive, with all his music, downloads, albums,everything
18:39 < stormrider> Linux didn't do that, I assure you.
18:39 < stormrider> YOU did that.
18:40 < heinola> i did it too at first
18:40 < HyBriDJoKeR> well, how would i do it?
18:40 < heinola> i lost 1.5 gigs of Mp3's downloaded on a 56k conn lol
18:40 < HyBriDJoKeR> try 4.7=
18:40 < HyBriDJoKeR> 4.7+
18:41 < HyBriDJoKeR> im not sure actually how much
18:41 < heinola> did u back up to cdrom's
18:42 < HyBriDJoKeR> some of it
18:42 < HyBriDJoKeR> maybe 2/3's is on CD
18:42 < HyBriDJoKeR> when i realized all my stuff was gone, i was more shocked than pissed
18:43 < HyBriDJoKeR> ive been trying to recover everything but the software im using isnt doing a good job
18:43 < HyBriDJoKeR> how would i done it stormrider?
18:44 < HyBriDJoKeR> cause i definitely just installed Linux, rebooted to Windows so i could remember how to set up my NVIDIA driver in Linux, and when i was gonna play music, it was all gone
18:44 < HyBriDJoKeR> whole drive
18:45 < stormrider> HyBriDJoKeR: How could linux have done it?
18:45 < HyBriDJoKeR> i dunno
18:45 < HyBriDJoKeR> lol
18:45 < stormrider> You probably wiped the drive
18:45 < HyBriDJoKeR> do i look like Linux
18:45 < HyBriDJoKeR> nah
18:46 < HyBriDJoKeR> i assure you i didnt, cause theres two physical drives, the drive with the music and all has two partitions...now the partition with the music was the only one that was wiped, not the other
18:47 < stormrider> What partition had music on it?
18:47 < HyBriDJoKeR> first partition on the second physical drive
18:47 < stormrider> Ok.
18:47 < HyBriDJoKeR> second partition was just random files i had
18:47 < stormrider> type df -h
18:47 < stormrider> (in the command line interface)
18:48 < heinola> Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
18:48 < heinola> /dev/hda4 4.7G 3.4G 1.3G 73% /
18:48 < heinola> /dev/hda2 3.8G 387M 3.4G 11% /home
18:48 < heinola> /dev/hda1 9.4G 5.6G 3.8G 60% /fat-c
18:48 < heinola> /dev/hdd1 20G 1.3G 19G 7% /fat-d
18:48 < stormrider> not you heinola lol
18:48 < HyBriDJoKeR> well its a little hard cause i just installed it again, and i need to get Linux to read one of my drives which has my driver to install it, then after that i need to configure KPPP to connect to the internet
18:48 < HyBriDJoKeR> lol
18:49 < stormrider> What partition did you install linux to?
18:49 < HyBriDJoKeR> well heres the set up
18:49 < HyBriDJoKeR> Linux physical drive, other physical drive
18:49 < HyBriDJoKeR> Linux physical drive had 4 partitions
18:50 < HyBriDJoKeR> other physical drive had 2
18:50 < HyBriDJoKeR> Linux physical partions where for boot, swap, root, /home, and /usr/local
18:51 < stormrider> perhaps you accidentally made /dev/hdb1 a linux partition.
18:51 < stormrider> Who knows? Doesn't reall matter anymore I guess.
18:52 < HyBriDJoKeR> yea
18:52 < HyBriDJoKeR> all that matters is recovering my data
18:52 < heinola> i think i pulled my man muscle owwch
18:52 < heinola> brb
18:52 < HyBriDJoKeR> and installing my driver and configuring KPPP
18:54 < stormrider> configuring KPPP should be no problem.
18:54 < HyBriDJoKeR> do you know of any good recovery programs for Linux?
18:54 < heinola> oowwww
18:54 < heinola> im in pain
18:54 < HyBriDJoKeR> sorry heinola, but do you know of any
18:55 < stormrider> I don't know of any.
18:55 < stormrider> heinola: Thanks for sharing.
18:56 * HyBriDJoKeR is sad
18:56 < heinola> np will update on my condition
18:56 < stormrider> heinola: lol

11:47 < himalaya> pls can anybody help me with a link to the sybase client for mandrake
11:49 < himalaya> how do i get a sybase-ocsd package for mandrake??
11:51 < traveller> himalaya: have you tried urpmi
11:51 < himalaya> whats that? a link??
11:51 < DoppelGanger> someone didn't rtm or google
11:51 < traveller> www.urpmi.org/easyurpmi <- check it out
11:51 < himalaya> ok
11:52 < traveller> himalaya: i assume you know how to use urpmi
11:58 < himalaya> traveller: no i dont
11:58 < himalaya> the link you gave me fails anyway
11:59 < Hawkwind> himalaya:http://linuxfordummies.org/index.cgi/Using_20Urpmi_20And_20Rpm_20Effectively
11:59 < himalaya> between: i am unable to ftp on my server. whats the equivalent of inetd.conf on mandrake 9? ( sorry i am new to mandrake, more used to freebsd)
11:59 < Hawkwind> himalaya: Try reading that page there, it will help you understand Urpmi/RPM quite a bit
12:00 < himalaya> ok hawkwind, how do i allow ftp on my mandrake box?
12:00 < Hawkwind> himalaya: You will need to run proftpd or something similar.urpmi proftpd
12:01 < traveller> himalaya: http://www.urpmi.org/easyurpmi/ <- i copied that from my browser...i can connect, strange though
12:01 < himalaya> urpmi: sounds like my ports collection tool on freebsd
12:02 < himalaya> i miss freebsd
12:02 < traveller> himalaya: what makes you do the change?
12:02 * DoppelGanger knows configuring ftp server on bsd is damn similiar to linux
12:03 < himalaya> are you kidding?? all i need to do is remove a comment in /etc/inetd.conf
12:03 < himalaya> and off course, allow remote access in /etc/hosts.allow
12:04 < himalaya> traveller: i am using linux because i have some problems making an odbc connection from freebsd to a remote syabse Db
12:04 < himalaya> i am told the sybase client tool was written for linux
12:18 < himalaya> i dont have proftpd on my mandrake cd.. i have lftpd, ncftpd, ftp, gftp.. and some other ftp rpms
12:18 < himalaya> which can i install to allow me ftp into my server remotely??
12:18 < DoppelGanger> gftp
12:18 < DoppelGanger> or lftp
12:19 < DoppelGanger> or ftp
12:19 < himalaya> i did ftp
12:19 < himalaya> i installed ftp rpm
12:19 < himalaya> but i still cannot ftp
12:19 < himalaya> even locally, it fails
12:19 < DoppelGanger> using terminal
12:19 -!- dams [~dams@krotkine.idm.fr] has joined #mandrake
12:19 < himalaya> yes
12:20 < DoppelGanger> then install gftp
12:20 < traveller> himalaya: did you start it?
12:20 < himalaya> start it in /usr/bin?
12:20 < himalaya> i did.. but it ended up with '>'
12:20 < traveller> ah.....i know why
12:20 < traveller> that's a client
12:20 < traveller> not a server
12:20 < DoppelGanger> well thats what he said he wanted above client
12:21 < traveller> look for packages ending with a 'd'
12:21 < DoppelGanger> which can i install to allow me ftp into my server remotely??
12:21 < traveller> oh...client? i thought he wanted server...
12:21 < himalaya> no, i want a server..
12:21 < DoppelGanger> proftpd
12:21 < traveller> hm...
12:21 < himalaya> i want to ftp into my mandrake box from my workstation
12:21 < himalaya> i dont have proftpd on CD
12:21 < DoppelGanger> if your ftping into something then you need a client
12:22 < DoppelGanger> a server runs
12:22 < DoppelGanger> you ftp into server
12:22 < DoppelGanger> must i go through this
12:22 < himalaya> i know!
12:22 < DoppelGanger> 12:21 < himalaya> i want to ftp into my mandrake box from my workstation
12:22 * DoppelGanger doesn't see it
12:23 < himalaya> I-DONT-HAVE-PROFTPD-...SOOOO-WHICH-OTHER-SERVER-MIGHT-I-INSTALL-FROM-CD-RPMS-COLLECTION11//
12:23 < traveller> DoppelGanger: i think he means he wanna ftp into his server, so what shall he install on the server....
12:23 < himalaya> SHE
12:23 < traveller> ok
12:23 < traveller> himalaya: sorry
12:23 < DoppelGanger> urpmi proftpd
12:23 < himalaya> IS GFTP OK/
12:24 < himalaya> /
12:24 < DoppelGanger> it is on teh cd for server
12:24 < DoppelGanger> gftp is an ftp client
12:24 < traveller> i think gftp is a client
12:24 < stew_b> himalaya: do you only have 1 cd or something?
12:24 < himalaya> 3
12:24 < stew_b> then you have it
12:24 < himalaya> and none of them have proftpd
12:24 * DoppelGanger gives up
12:25 < stew_b> himalaya: then you have different cd's than the majority of users
12:25 < himalaya> how do i install this urpmi??
12:25 < DoppelGanger> rtm
12:25 < DoppelGanger> how many times must i say it
12:26 < DoppelGanger> its there already
12:26 < DoppelGanger> accessible as root
12:26 < DoppelGanger> see garrick's faqs in channel topic
12:26 < DoppelGanger> and start asking more clearly defined questions
12:26 < HauntedUnix> z/whois himalaya
12:26 < HauntedUnix> oops ;)
12:28 < himalaya> I-DONT-HAVE-URPMI BY DEFAULT
12:28 < HauntedUnix> Mm..
12:28 < HauntedUnix> himalaya: Would you perhaps rather take this off channel, I'm willing to help you with it if you would rather.
12:29 < himalaya> sure.. i need to get this stuff working today
12:29 < HauntedUnix> Alright :)
*later I receive this pm*
12:35 < HauntedUnix> Wasn't using urpmi.
12:35 < HauntedUnix> er, she wasn't using Mandrake
12:35 < HauntedUnix> SHe was using Redhat
12:35 < DoppelGanger> she certainly knows how to make sense doesn't she
12:36 < HauntedUnix> cat /etc/mandrake-release
12:36 < HauntedUnix> no file found
12:36 < HauntedUnix> uname -r
12:36 < HauntedUnix> 2.4.20-8
12:36 < HauntedUnix> which drakconf
12:36 < HauntedUnix> not found
12:36 < HauntedUnix> ...
12:36 < HauntedUnix> wtf?
12:36 < DoppelGanger> ah ah
NB: translation: I feel sorry for freebsd that just got its good name fucked over by a fucktard like that, goddamn shes stupid, sheesh, and doesn't know how to use the ftp command, come on now thts just bullshit fucking liars, runs bsd my ass.

Yes, they are accessible but you just have to use different server
names to access them:
Incoming server: webin.loftmail.com (webin not webmin)
Outgoing server: webout.loftmail.com
Check out some screenshots here:

Also make sure you put your entire email address for username.
Let us know how it goes.
