23:55 <+DoppelGanger> where did you get the source from
23:56 <+DoppelGanger> and last but not least
23:56 <+DoppelGanger> did you cd into the directory of the extracted source
23:56 <+DoppelGanger> after you cd into extracted source dir
23:56 <+DoppelGanger> did you do make menuconfig
23:56 <+DoppelGanger> then config the kernel
23:56 <+DoppelGanger> after that save config
23:56 <+DoppelGanger> then issue the proper make commands based on arch

16:04 < guiton> hi !!!!
16:04 < morphology> howdy
16:04 < guiton> i need help about fdisk !!!
16:04 < morphology> please explain your situation
16:05 < guiton> i can't access my disk with windows
16:05 < morphology> which disk?
16:05 < guiton> but i can with partition magic
16:05 < guiton> a storage disk
16:05 < morphology> hda1?
16:05 < morphology> oh...
16:05 < guiton> no , hdb5
16:05 < morphology> right
16:06 < guiton> hdb1 , sorry
16:06 < morphology> you cannot access hdb1 from windows... so what would
you like to do?
16:06 < morphology> reformat?
16:06 < guiton> no !!!
16:06 < guiton> fix it
16:06 < morphology> as yet I cannot tell what is broken
16:06 < guiton> it's not a big problem , i'm sure
16:06 < morphology> is the disk accessable from linux
16:06 < Kluster> what fs ?
16:07 < guiton> of course !
16:07 < morphology> then you seem to have a windows problem
16:07 < guiton> yes but i just re install it
16:07 < morphology> reinstalled what exactly?
16:07 < guiton> windows !
16:07 < Kluster> guiton, what file system ??
16:08 < guiton> NTFS with old windows
16:08 < Kluster> you know windows is dumb and won't read ext2 and other
good fs unless you use a special program
16:08 < guiton> but now RAW
16:08 < guiton> !!!!!
16:08 < morphology> the storage partition must be formatted as NTFS or
FAT before windows can read it
16:09 < guiton> i fill this disk for 5 years in ntfs but yesterday ,
when i re install windows, i 'm not able to access
16:09 < morphology> if it is indeed NTFS, and windows cannot see it...
this is likely a consequence of the new windows install
16:10 < morphology> yes, the fresh install of XP doesn't know of the
existence of this partition
16:10 < morphology> XP must be configured to see that partition
16:10 < guiton> with acronis partition suite and partition magic , i can
see all my files!
16:10 < morphology> tragically, that is an XP problem
16:11 < morphology> this happens to be a linux channel, so we may be of
limited help here
16:11 < guiton> that's why i would like to fix MBR !
16:11 < guiton> only linux can save my drive
16:11 < morphology> :-)
16:11 < guiton> that's why i come on linux channel
16:12 < morphology> linux can see the drive.... so technically nothing
NEEDS saving since the drive is in fact accessable
16:12 < morphology> just not from windows
16:12 < Kluster> guiton, I would call Bill if I were you
16:13 < guiton> lol
16:13 < morphology> sorry if this sounds a bit prickly guiton, I'm just
struggling to appreciate the nature of the problem
16:13 < morphology> :-P
16:14 < Kluster> ooh I fully appreciate this problem.. and I blame
Windows. feeeeels good
16:14 < Kluster> and that brings us to question number two: why in hell
are you using windows ??
16:14 < Kluster> I thought you were cured from that disease
16:15 < guiton> because of compatibility , of course !
16:15 < Kluster> windows isn't even compatible with itself..
16:15 < guiton> lol
16:15 < guiton> you're right
16:16 < Kluster> the only thing they fully support is their trademark,
16:16 < guiton> unfortunately
16:17 < guiton> then ,
16:17 < guiton> can you help me about mbr
16:17 < guiton> i'd like to fix it
16:18 < guiton> or format it
16:18 < morphology> I'm not real sure that I see how the mbr is the
solution... Kluster ?
16:19 < Kluster> can't be.. the partition works
16:19 < guiton> i had a linux partition in hdb before
16:20 < guiton> i deleted it to gain free space
16:20 < guiton> and since ...
16:20 < guiton> since then ...
16:21 < guiton> and i know lilo and grub modifies MBR
16:22 < morphology> but your storage drive is not bootable... so this
should be moot
16:22 < guiton> does it means something to you : "Bad attribute position
in file record"
16:22 < Kluster> guiton, did you ask in #windows ?
16:23 < guiton> no , i know linux softs are great
16:23 < guiton> but i will try !
16:23 < Kluster> you have a problem with windows
16:23 < guiton> that can be solved with linux !
16:23 < Kluster> you're damn right !! by removing windows and
16:23 < guiton> that's why i ask to you
16:23 < morphology> mount /dev/hdb1 /mnt/myStorage
16:23 < morphology> problem solved
16:24 < guiton> what does it makes ??
16:24 < guiton> i'm a newbee !
16:24 < guiton> i want to learn !
16:24 < morphology> that's just the command for mounting your drive
16:25 < guiton> i can see it in my desktop
16:25 < guiton> i have an icon
16:25 < morphology> Ah... you have access to the drive...
16:25 < guiton> it's already mounted
16:25 < morphology> remind me of the problem again?
16:25 < Kluster> ok guiton here's a recap of what morph has been telling
you: If you use it with linux, the partition is OK and doesn't need to be fixed
16:25 < guiton> windows can't mount it !
16:25 < morphology> ^^^^^^^^
16:25 < Kluster> then you have a PROBLEM WITH WINDOWS
16:26 < morphology> problem identified
16:26 < guiton> windows saw it well before ?!
16:26 < morphology> Sorry guiton, but I am woefully ignorant of the
workings of windows
16:26 < Kluster> yeah, but windows is windows
16:26 < guiton> with softs under windows i can see it
16:27 < morphology> I suspect that the new install doesn't know of the
16:27 < Kluster> it's perfectly normal for windows to stop working for
16:27 < guiton> i explain :
16:27 < morphology> there is a way to configure windows to detect
partitions ( I think)... I just doen't know what it is
16:27 < morphology> I don't use windows, you see
16:28 < guiton> with partition magic , there is a browser,but the path
is like : //./disk/local4...
16:28 < guiton> not : /e:
16:28 < morphology> I wouldn't fool with partition magic guiton, as this
is not a partitioning problem
16:28 < Kluster> guiton, call the makers of partition magic, with your
license they can support you
16:28 < guiton> you know what i mean ?
16:29 < morphology> the partition exists, the partition is intact, the
partition is accessable
16:29 < guiton> license ???
16:29 < Kluster> yeah you pay for partition magic, then you call THEM so
they can support you
16:29 < morphology> I still don't think it is a partitioning problem
16:29 < guiton> money missing me !
16:30 < Kluster> me neither, but he's stubborn..
16:30 < Kluster> guiton, you're french, right ?
16:30 < guiton> yes, sorry for my bad english !
16:30 < Kluster> no worries for the english..
16:31 < morphology> your command of the language is acceptable
16:32 < guiton> i know there is no problem with partition but how
windows detects it , morphology !
16:32 < Kluster> still, let me just put in words you will understand:
Le putain de probl?me c'est Windows, et non la partition.. Ici on
supporte Linux, et on pourrait aider ? r?gler des probl?mes de partition,
mais si tu peux y acc?der avec Linux, c'est pas ?a le probl?me
16:32 < guiton> and i know there are great capabilities with fdisk !
16:33 < Kluster> guiton, you could copy everything on anotehr partition
THEN format it and restore the data
16:33 < guiton> d'accord , j'ai compris !
16:33 < morphology> yes, fdisk is a powerful tool. I'm just not
convinced that it is the appropriate tool in this situation
16:34 < guiton> ok !
16:34 < guiton> i will stop boring you with my problem and go to
16:34 < morphology> best of luck guiton, I hope you find a solution to
your problem :-)
16:35 < guiton> thank you very much !!!!!!
16:35 < guiton> bye !
16:35 < Kluster> good luck, remember you can alwasy backup adn restore
16:36 < guiton> thanks guys !!

12:27 < desklamp123> Hi Khalee
12:28 < desklamp123> ok. off to read them.
12:28 < khaleel5000> desklamp123: I cant help you with this problem
12:29 < khaleel5000> have you asked at #redhat?
12:30 < desklamp123> yeah, I know, I'm installing the devil I know,
before I upgrade to the devil I don't.
12:30 < desklamp123> I wanted to to get my redhat working, before I
12:31 < desklamp123> khalee, thanks for the red hat idea, I didn't think
12:33 < khaleel5000> its ok, (btw its khaleel , you can type kha and
press tab key with usually should complete the name)
12:35 < desklamp123> khaleel: (looking sheepish)sorry
12:35 < desklamp123> cool! the tab thing works!
12:35 < khaleel5000> it was just for info about tab thing (basically)
12:36 < khaleel5000> desklamp123: did you hear a beep or see this line
in a differetn colour?
12:38 < khaleel5000> desklamp123: how did you determine ur redhat was
12:40 < desklamp123> khaleel5000: let's see (grin) New accounts appeared
in users and the home page was turned into an ebay phishing site.
12:40 < desklamp123> And it was sending spam at a rate of 2000 returned
emails an hour.
12:41 < desklamp123> I was at a convention, used an unsecure wireless to
log into my webmail, my email account had root access. I was
12:43 < khaleel5000> dude I am a very very n00b , but you say you are
INSTALLING REDHAT , then how do you determine your echo ting is not
starting in services
12:43 < desklamp123> khaleel5000: so I couldn't find the backdoors, so I
did a scorched earth
12:44 < desklamp123> Ahhh....
12:44 < desklamp123> I installed redhat 3 years ago, with a freind's
help. got it work and prompltly forgot about it. it was stable and
12:44 < desklamp123> why mess with it.
12:45 < desklamp123> So I thought I could pop the install disks back in
and reformat and it would be easy to repair everything.
12:45 < desklamp123> Ha!
12:47 < khaleel5000> so you are using that SAME 3 year old redhat
12:47 < desklamp123> so I'm a semi newbie, just enough skills to get me
in big trouble.
12:47 < desklamp123> Yes. If it worked before, I thought I could get it
to work again.
12:47 < desklamp123> And I could repair all my email and backed up
12:48 < desklamp123> The software was not the problem, the problem was I
gave them my password and root access.
12:49 < desklamp123> I'll migrate to fedora after I get this to work.
12:49 < khaleel5000> desklamp123: you might consider using Pclinux or
Debian (imho Pclinux)
12:51 < desklamp123> I will, and install firewall and all that good
12:51 < desklamp123> But I need to get my eamil back.
