OK, let's start off with easier questions.

Maybe I am the only person in the world to have had the problems in my lead post. Maybe others have but there is no solution. In any case, let me simplify it for starters. First, what SHOULD the contents of /usr/java/jre1.6.0/plugin/i386/ns7 be? I don't have another CentOS box to check. If anyone do...

Firefox/java problem

It worked. It used to work. It doesn't work anymore. Java no longer works in Firefox 1.5.0.12 (yes, when it was working it WAS working with this version). The only remotely related thing I did that I can think of is that I installed Opera and got Java working fine it it (and it still does). The prob...

Nevermind, got it.

/etc/X11/xorg.conf. There's a line in the Monitor section that says

VertRefresh 50.0 - 120.0

I just changed 120.0 to 60.0 and it now comes up at 60 Hz when I reboot. Anyone else with the problem can take note.

Monitor refresh rate won't stick

Centos 4.5, usually using Gnome. The computer had a multisync monitor that worked OK, but it quit working a few days ago so I replaced it with one of several spares I have. No go. Borrowed a multi-sync monitor temporarily and discoverd that the refresh rate was set to 75 Hz, which my spare monitors ...

Re: Found something, but doesn't work.

No, I didn't do either of those things. But then, I didn't do either of them on alpha either, and it works fine. I don't quite understand why two installations should end up working differently. Certainly when I access alpha from an XP box I don't need to enter a username or password. Indeed, beta d...

Found something, but doesn't work.

Thanks. Found a difference: the one that works (alpha) has workgroup=workgroup in it, the other (beta) did not. So I added the line and restarted samba. Sadly, it still doesn't work. I must be missing something, but after about 10 days of pulling teeth to get CentOS working I'm quite discouraged. An...

Re: Can't access share on new CentOS install

Thanks, I can do that edit, except that I don't know where to put the "workgroup" entry or what the format is. Any idea about that?

Can't access share on new CentOS install

Just did a new installof CentOS 4.5 on a box where the HD had died. I have another CentOS box with a very similar installation. Both are on the same LAN with a bunch of XP machines, both have samba and lisa running. On the older box (call it alpha) everything's fine. I can go to an XP machine and se...

Multiple VNC servers?

Running CentOS 4.5, usually with VNC for remote access via my LAN. The file /etc/sysconfig/vncservers has a line with VNCSERVERS="1:accountname" This lets me log in to IP:1 as that account and brings up Gnome. However, security is not an issue (I live alone and the computer is only accessible via th...

Dual Boot - XP and Centos 5

My apologies if this has been asked before, but the state of my health severely restricts my available computer time so I can't go through older posts and other forums without exceeding my physical limits! I have a (very nice, and VERY quiet) workstation in my home office. It is currently configured...
