I didn't see this covered in any of the posts I could read in the Mozill
groups, nor the FAQs, so here goes...
I am trying to import email into Mozilla 1.0. I tried importing from
Eudora and got the account settings OK, but did not get the entire
address book (notably distribution lists) and couldn't get all the
email. I received no error for the address book, but did get an error
saying "cannot create proxy object for destination mailboxes" about half
way throuhg the import, at which point all the folder that were created
were moved to Trash.
I decided to try Outlook just in case the Eudora code was messed up, I
first imported from Eudora into Outlook, but I got the same problem.
In both cases, I get the impression that the import code can't do too
much with nested information (email distribution lists and mail folder
that contain other folders), but Mozilla seems to be able to get started
without any trouble. Then again, there is a lot of email involved and
I'm also wondering if there are some limits set somewhere in the code
before it gives up...
Anyone have any suggestions?
Well, I thought everything was working, but sendmail won't receive mail.
1) Doing a status on sendmail says its running
2) dig says that named is running on that server and returns all proper
3) I had saved the WORKING access, local-host-names and virtusertable files
before replacing the bad
hard drive and had copied them back into /etc/mail and done a make, so
I assume they're good
4) I just restarted the mail server, which logged the following:
Sep 3 19:03:39 boron sendmail: alias database /etc/aliases rebuilt
Sep 3 19:03:39 boron sendmail: /etc/aliases: 40 aliases, longest 10

I have three similar servers (the other two still RH7.0) and I have never
touched the sendmail config - only the access, local-host-names and
virtusertable files on any of them.
Has something changed between the versions of sendmail on RH7.0 and RH7.3
or have I missed something. The lack of any message on the receiving server
puzzles me. Or has something changed in named relating to mail?
Heh...somehow SpamAssassin flagged this as a Viagra spam :) Interesting,

I second that instinct. I've run across a couple of CD's that my wife's
sony stereo wouldn't play, but I could rip with cdparanoia and then created
a "real" redbook CD that worked fine.

My first instinct is to load up cdparanoia and see what it says. Judging
from the mass media interpretation of the copy prevention scheme... ie.
"Invalid data track crashes windows" part of me thinks it would just work,
since at no point would you be automounting an invalid ISO filesystem.
On the other hand, it might be an invalid TOC, which means you might have
to send cdparanoia some options. But if the CD works in a CD player, the
TOC must be valid "enough" to point to redbook data that can be ripped.

Now that I have your attention (almost), my Dad recently bought one of the
so-called copy-protected audio CDs and he is unable to rip it. As he
regularly uses both a Rio while running and has a Rio receiver hooked up
to the downstairs stereo, that's a real pain. I haven't looked at the CD
myself yet so I don't know if I can use the
Sharpie-over-the-corrupt-data-track trick, but has anyone else run into
this and come up with a good solution? There's been a million Slashdot
stories on the problem with no real resolution that I can find. I figured
there would be an answer on this side of the pond if nothing else, but a
Windows workaround would work too. Any ideas? My suggestion was, of
course, to return the CD and write a nasty letter to the company about
selling something labeled as a Compact Disc that does not conform to the
Red Book standard, but that doesn't really fix the problem. Thanks in

I'm considering getting a laser printer (I'm tired of buying all those
ink jet cartidges that my kids burn through), and I'm interested in
recommendataions for low-cost models. (I'm running RedHat 7.2.)
HP has a model (LaserJet 1000) for $250 retail. It has a USB
connection that the HP web page says is for "window only".

Well, I've got the ETH1 and DHCP issues resolved (Thanks, Charles). Did not
need to do anything with modules - had misinterpreted the install dialog
and ifcfg-eth1 had BOOTPROTO=dhcp. eth1 should have been static with DHCP
running from there.
One unresolved issue - when I issue an IPChains command, the first time I
get "IPchains incompatible with this kernel" and thereafter "IPChains
protocol not available". The IPChains command is there, as for example
"ipchains -h" works. But I haven't got masquerading or firewalling yet
because of this.

I have a RH7.0 server which has been giving me regular unrecoverable
disk errors since 6-8 weeks ago. I figured today I had enough time to
do something about it.
I also figured that as long as I had to rebuild from scratch (after
installing a new hard drive) I'd upgrade to RH7.3 -- but I have a few
more problems that I figured on.
The server is dual homed - eth0 (DEC 2104x 10mbps tulip driver) goes
to DSL, eth1 (Realtek 100mbps) goes to internal network. Was running
IP Masquerade / IPChains / Apache / sendmail / DNS server fine under
I have the following problems:
1) During startup eth0 comes up but eth1 does not. My notes on the
previous installation [year ago?] don't show that I did anything
special when I installed the Realtek (was previously also DEC 2104x)
but that doesn't mean I just didn't write it down.
2) dhcpd won't run, but I assume that's related to #1. Was surprised
that dhcpd wasn't loaded during install, as I flagged eth1 as dhcp.
3) how do I know whether IPchains or IPtables is active, and how do I
switch. Considering the time involved so far, I think I'd rather
delay switching to IPTables and use my existing IPChains firewall for
now. Can I still hook it in at the end of rc.local?
4) During install I did answer some firewalling questions (set to
medium, custom) -- where is the results of that dialog?
5) If I can use my existing IPChains firewall, that will take care of
IP Masquerade -- if not can I have some guidance as to what direction
6) httpd comes up but says "cannot resolve hostname, using 127.0.0.1"
- what did I forget to configure? (I haven't touched httpd.conf yet.)
7) issue and issue.net used to be set from rc.local, but no more --
where are they set? I'd like to patch that out and be a bit more
I'm definitely unconnected until most of these Q's get resolved.
Thanks to any who can assist me.
Sometime around April I bought a server from Dell. The plan, at the
time, was to make it into a webserver and host Wormtown.org and
whoever else I could split the bandwidth/hard drive with at a hosting
facility in Marlboro.
However, it was also in April that I lost my job and then determined
that the donations that Wormtown.org collects are not nearly enough to
cover the cost of hosting.
So, now that I've been unemployed since April. I'm feeling the money
start to tighten up and I think it's about time to sell this server.
It is a Dell PowerEdge 1650
It is a 1U rackmountable server.
It has one PIII 1.13 chip in it
It has 512M of RAM (2x256)
It has one 36G drive (U160, 10K RPM)
The rest of the specs are standard.
I've got all the CDs including the Dell Drivers CD and the
Red Hat 7.2 Discs that came with it.
I've even got Rack Rails.
And it does have the cool blue Dell logo that lights up on it.
It's been run for about 15 hours total.
I believe I paid a bit over $2100 for it. I just priced the same exact
machine for $2071 (plus tax and shipping) at Dell.com. I will, of
course, take the best offer I can get. I don't want to go any lower
than $1500 if I can help it, though.
If you're interested, or someone you know might be, contact me.
