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?
I am trying to install SuSE 9.3 on a dual dual-core Opteron system. I can boot into the installation kernel and do an installation, but when the system reboots it boots to a black screen with a ~2 inch horizontal green line in the upper left-hand corner. I am not sure where to start troubleshooting this, since I do not have much error output.
The things I know so far:
o Knoppix 3.9 boots fine and runs off CD.
o SuSE 9.2's installation kernel boots to the same state.
o My install of 9.3 was a basic "click next" install.
o http://www.beowulf.org/archive/2005-July/013234.html indicates there may be some issue with the initrd, but does not say what the guy did. My impression is that I am not even getting that far, though.
Any help/hints/direction would be much appreciated.
Thanks very much!
Sounds like either a promise or a 3ware card...

You can use mplayer. There was an article on it in the last Linux Journal.

Does anybody have a favorite stream ripper that they'd like to recommend?
FYI, a stream ripper (as I've very recently learned) is a program which
"listens" to a streaming audio broadcast and saves that information on
your hard drive. Streaming audio broadcasts are available on
shoutcast.com and icecast.org, and probably many other places.
I'm using a program called 'streamripper' (strangely enough) which I
found at http://streamripper.sourceforge.net/. I'm wondering what
others might be using. It has a feature where songs can be saved as
individual .mp3 (or .ogg) files, or the whole stream can be saved in one
file. I've downloaded these songs into my portable MP3 player for later
There seems to be some controversy about the use of such programs.
Frankly, I don't see it as any different than holding a microphone in
front of the radio. Granted, the quality is much better with a ripper.
Prior to learning something about stream rippers, I had been using the
Ogg encoder output feature of xmms while xmms was "tuned" to a streaming
audio broadcast. As I understand it, this involves taking the stream
source (an MP3 stream generally) and re-encoding it into the Ogg format,
