600mhz Alpha with 384megs of ram. On board sound and LAN.
This is a REAL AU model, with the qlogic SCSI card and the powerstorm
video card(in case you wanted to run OpenVMS). I would recommend using
a different video card or using the serial console for anything BSD or
I believe it has a 9 gig SCSI disk in it, but I've suplemented it with a
50gig IDE drive on the IDE chain. I've also replaced the IDE CD-ROM
with an 68-pin SCSI CD-ROM(yes, thats right, 68-pin).
I also have all the original docs with it.
I was running FreeBSD 5.3 on it until a week ago when I upgraded the
machine. Nice little hobby system.
$200 bucks or best offer. If anyone has any questions, or wishes to
haggle, please reply to me(and not the list, they hate that).
Thanks for the input I recieved here, I've bought an Epson R300 color
printer for making photos. Once I figured out that the debian package
for libcupsys has the permissions borked for the files in
/usr/lib/cups/backend so that they aren't executable, all is well.
I've been happily browsing images in 'gqview', then loading them into
gimp 2.0, then printing them.
But I'm having issues with scaling images. I have to guess how/where
to crop the images so that I can get the maximum amount of the picture
onto the paper. It's a real pain, with lots of back and forth.
Is there a tool out there, or a gimp plugin, which allows me to take a
picture, select a paper size and gives me a template to crop/scale the
image to fit that paper size nicely? Any hints on what tools/packages
I should be looking at for this type of work?
For example, I've got a picture of my nephew and son which I wanted to
print out. I also wanted to zoom in a bit (or crop the image down to
get closer to them) so that when it printed, I maximized the use of
the 4x6 stock. A real pain in gimp 2.0, but since I'm just using the
standard Debian install, maybe there is a plugin to help with this?
Figured I'd throw this out there.
I am working on a project that requires me to push .ldf files from a
linux server to a window 2003 server. Basically creating the same
accounts on the linux system onto the windows system.
Does anyone know of linux program that is equivalent of the windows
"ldifde" program? It needs to be able to create a secure connection with
Thanks in advance,
Recently I've begun considering migrating over to the amd64 platform (my
motherboard just died on my athlon xp system, much to my chagrin) and
figure this is a good place to ask for users experiences. I'm not worried
about my video card drivers, since NVIDIA has great amd64 support, at
least, so I'm told. My main concern is that I need to install some 32-bit
emulation libraries and kernel modules, so I've read, to compile 32-bit
apps, and that some compiled 32-bit apps will only work under a 32-bit
environment, requiring me to setup a seperate environment to chroot into.
I'm running gentoo and I'm up to the task, just wondering if anyone has
any experience in this specifically and anything I should be concerned
about or not to worry too much about. Thanks.

Quick question I can't seem to find a google answer on.
I've got a machine that gets it's IP via DHCP. Now on our network, the
DNS name is pulled off the machine and auto registered. However this
machine won't push its domain name.
Any ideas where a) the setting for this might be b) any manual step you
can use to update the DNS name?
I looked at the nsupdate command, but I'm not sure that's the right
Talking with the network guy, he recalls there being a graphical tool
for Linux that would let you do this.
We had a discussion about swappiness at the last meeting. Here's what
my system defaults to:
Fedora Core release 3 (Heidelberg)
I don't see this being changed in any of the init scripts, so the
default is most likely changed in the Fedora kernel from 100 to 60.
If you want to tune it, you should be able to just stick this in
vm.swappiness = <new value>
Here is more information on what this is all about:
When and where can these be looked at? I'd be interested in a couple.
