Hi, I recently installed a network consisting of a server and seventeen desktop machines, all running CentOS 5.5, in a private school. The network spreads over two floors. Three machines have printers connected to them, two in the basement, one on the first floor. Is there a way every machine can - ...

rt61 PCI Wireless: freeze upon shutdown with static IP confi

Hi, I have one desktop PC I'd like to use as a jukebox. It's installed in the basement as a black box, with only SSH access, and it has got a minimal CentOS 5.3 install with MPD and NCMPC. It's connected to the hi-fi in the basement, so I can stream music to it when I'm downstairs. Since I didn't wa...

Re: Thunderbird vs. Evolution ?

Thanks. You confirmed my suspicions. Unfortunately Sunbird has been abandoned some time ago. I understand folks have to use the Lightning plugin for Thunderbird.

Thunderbird vs. Evolution ?

Hi, I'm a happy CentOS user since 4.2. Normally I'm using Thunderbird as my email client, for the one reason that before CentOS I've been using it with Slackware before. Lately I just thought, hey, what about Evolution ? I'd like to have your general opinion about Evolution as a mail client. How doe...

CentOS 5.3 extremely slow

I've already seen GNOME becoming extremely slow when the system's hostname was not correctly set. You might as well give this a try. It's a classic.

Static configuration for wireless card ?

Hi, I have a desktop PC with CentOS 5 installed, and a wireless card that's working well via NetworkManager. How would I configure the wireless card statically, e. g. by editing /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wlan0? This would be something like : DEVICE=wlan0 BOOTPROTO=static ONBOOT=yes IPADDR...

Re: Resize root partition of existing install?

I downloaded the GParted LiveCD, booted it, deleted hda5 to hda10, and then simply resized hda3 with a simple drag-and-drop. Took a few minutes and worked like a charm. (Yes, I made backups before...)

Thanks!

Resize root partition of existing install?

Hi, I have CentOS 5 installed on a PIV 1.4 GHz, whose sole function is that of buildbox, e. g. compile software to distribute in on other computers. When I first performed the install, I didn't use the whole disk. The install is on hda1 (swap), hda2 (/boot) and hda3 ( / partition ). But the disk als...

Re: CentOS 5.2: system painfully slow after hibernate/sleep

No, it's not a DNS issue. And when I'm setting up a desktop, I deactivate any services I don't need (which results in a quite responsive system). But I just found the problem. $ cat /proc/cpuinfo ... tells me that my PIV runs at 600 MHz, although it's meant to run at 1.4 GHz! So I disabled a daemon ...
