I have Slackware 7.1 running on a an AMD 133Mhz box with 32Megs RAM.
This is my webserver, shell server, Ip MASQ box, and it locks up alot.
It seems to lock up when I'm downloading on a box in my network behind
it. I am runnign Kernel 2.4.0 on an ADSL line. I have had this problem
with all kernel compiles I have done. I used to run FreeBSD,
then OpenBSD on this box with no trouble. I did not, however, have ADSL
then, so those boxes were just using a dial-up. I think IP MASQ is
lockign the box up at some point. There are no messages in
/var/log/messages, it just stops cold. My PPPOE client, when running
top, never appears to use more than 10% of my CPU. I do not think the
problem is in the pppoe client because the box does not seem to lock up
when I'm downloading on it. (as in ssh'ing in and using lynx). Does
anyone have any ideas on this?
My name is David Dondero and I am looking for someone who can help me set up
a Red Hat Linux server that can:
Use the apache webserver to set up hosting customer's webpages as well as my
Run RealServer basic for streaming audio and video live and on demand
Run Darwin Streaming server for streaming audio and video live and on demand
Run a Shoutcast server for live audio streaming
I currently have a Duron 650 with a 15 and 20 gig hard drive 7200rpm with
128 megs of PC100 memory.
Anyone interested please get in touch by either e-mail:
This is a friendly reminder: the next WLUG meeting will be held on Wednesday,
March 14th at 7 PM in Kinnicutt Hall at WPI in Worcester, MA. Directions can be
found on the WLUG website:
WLUG members Doug Waud, Stephen Daukas, and Chuck Anderson have been working
together on the presentation for this meeting (at least that's the story I've
been given). They will be discussing their experiences with home networking.
Check out the WLUG website for a more detailed description of the focus of their
talk. I expect that this will be a good meeting for someone who might not have
setup a home network but is considering it.
After the presentation, if time allows, we'll open the floor for a general
question and answer session.
At the conclusion of the meeting, a group of us will head over to the Boynton
Restaurant for some pizza and beer.
As always, the meeting and the post-meeting festivities are open to anybody who
is interested in Linux. No secret handshake is required. :-)
See ya later,

I am having a problem setting the date/time on my Linux box.
I set it using date 030310152001 for 3/3/2001 10:15. Everyting seems fine
until I reboot the box. At that time it changes to some other time. I
checked my CMOS and the time is correct. What am I doing wrong?
thanx for your help.
