Network eth1 reconfigure

Published by:

i have two lan card on my pc. one is onboard and the other is on pci.
i use the pci since my onboard card seem stupidly not working.
so linux will identify them as eth0 and eth1.
so my pci lay on eth1 while the eth0 is for the onboard one.
in the installation procedure i already put the ip and mask address of my lan pc configuration. but the eth1 seems undetected.
when i went to kde, i try to reconfigure the network from the setting menu. but the eth0 or eth1 looked disable. i pressed the enable button, but nothing happen.
then i read again in the forum (i forgot the forum), i have to reconfigure the address by checking the ifconfig status

#ifconfig

and yes the eth1 not detected. only eth0 and lo configuration stated. so i need to configured manually the eth1.

#nano /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf

the command is trying to write down manually the configuration of the eth1. so i wrote it down again the ip and the net. and check below the conf for the gateway. after all correct, i restart the inet.

#/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 restart

then i have my network back. after i log in to kde, i turn on the network monitor so i can see whether the net is plugged of not. and yes it is plugged in. but the internet still not working. i dont know why. but i tried to reconfigure again all the step above. restart and activate the rc.inet1.conf and boom after restarting suddenly the internet worked.
but still i dont know what was really happen.

install ntfs-3g slackware 12.1

Published by:

i got the information brom bayu blog wordpress

firts u should download the package ntfs-3g from the site http://www.ntfs-3g.org

then install the package

#installpkg ntfs-3g

clik Y when prompting

here is the step making the ntfs drive could be written by your linux

#mkdir /mnt/{winc,wind}

#ntfs-3g /dev/hdb0 /mnt/winc

#ntfs-3g /dev/hdb1 /mnt/wind

or

#mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/hdb0 /mnt/winc

#mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/hdb1 /mnt/wind

if you want your linux read the ntfs on booting type this in your /etc/fstab (at the end is ok)

/dev/hdb0 /mnt/winc ntfs-3g defaults 0 0

/dev/hdb1 /mnt/wind ntfs-3g defaults 0 0

install nvidia mx4000 geforce4 driver to slackware 12.1

Published by:

i got the nvidia driver package from www.nvidia.com for my nvidia geforce4 mx4000. i think nvidia gave me the same driver from several graphic models. the package called Nvidia-Linux-x86-96.43.05-pkg1.run
From the other site i got the info that run type file is a original group of file that still need to compile on linux. So I try to search other clue bout how to compile them. Then i found one in walecha site (this is the person who wrote the info). Here’re the clue i try to run:

# i put the Nvidia-Linux-x86-96.43.05-pkg1.run on my home folder /root/home
# make sure you log on as root and initlevel 3
#tar -xvzf Nvidia-Linux-x86-96.43.05-pkg1.run #unzip the package and produce Nvidia-xconfig folder
#./configure –opsi1 #didnt work, it was for knowing the script configuration
#make #making something i dont understand
#strip –strip-unneeded -v /usr/lib/*.so
#strip –strip-debug -v /usr/lib/*.a
#makepkg Nvidia-Linux-x86-96.43.05-pkg1.tgz
#installpkg Nvidia-Linux-x86-96.43.05-pkg1.tgz
#startx #to test the x-windows

but the test said nvidia driver not found. i dont know whats going on yet.

how to read password from windows mail export account

Published by:

hey i found something useful here. if you forget your email password that you filled in the windows mail accont, since that the password written in asterisk, u can go to http://www.motobit.com/util/iaf-password-recovery.asp.
but first u have to export the email account and ends up with iaf extention. then u go to the url.
and whala u reveal the password.
in this version u cannot read the user name account, only the first letter of your account revealed.
be satisfied, it’s free.

install igos linux through xp sp2 – edit grub

Published by:

i thought i could install slackware on the laptop but something wrong with the cd so i tried igos linux and it worked. i read in the booting log and it written the linux based on red hat nash version 5.0.32.
well dont really care about that, i continue installing the os. then i want to configure the grub, since the os using grub for boot manager (bm).
so quite easy to edit them coz it really looks like debian linux. i just edit the grub then automatically install into the boot loader. different with lilo, that needs to re-start to load in to the boot loader.
so what i want is to change the name of XP os that written Other and use the default boot to it. instead of igos as default.
here what i do :
i try to find the grub configuration in /boot/grub and yes there is.
i copy the menu.lst file into menu.lst.old

#cp menu.lst menu.lst.old #just in case something happen i still have the original file

then i m using nano to edit it.

#nano /etc/grub/menu.lst

i change the title i want and the default to numer = 1 or 2 depends on how many your os are.

and i save it by pressing ^O and the ^X to exit.

then init 6 to restart the linux. and there the boot loader change.

manually install samba on slackware 12.1

Published by:

well this is my first use on samba actually. So there’s a lot of things that i dont know about this OS. One of them is connecting my slack to windows OS. I read the articles made by other that Slack needs to activate samba first so the linux OS appears on Windows Network.
But Slack, not like windows, need to activate the samba manually. Here are what i ve got from the guys from the net.
check first just in case samba is already defined during booting:

less /var/log/packages/samba*

if any, try to download the samba first from anyplace that you can find by google. there are plenty of those. then install them. i found the samba version 3.0.23c-i486 in tgz format. here is to install it:

# installpkg samba-3.0.23c-i486-1.tgz

then remenmber you have login as root here.
then edit the samba.conf in /etc/samba

if you cant find the samba.conf , create one

# touch /etc/samba/samba.conf #this is for defining the time format for file (if i m not mistaken)
# nano /etc/samba/samba.conf #this is to write the file with simple editor text

write inside this code:

[global]
workgroup = WORKGROUP
server string = foo
security = user
load printers = yes
log file = /var/log/samba.%m
max log size = 50
socket options = TCP_NODELAY

[home]
comment = My Home Directory
path = /home/someuser
valid users = someuser
writable = yes

Directives explanation:
[global]
workgroup – Enter here the NT Domain Name or Workgroup Name currently set for your network.
server string – Used for showing a description related to the Linux server.
security – Sets the Authentication Mode to user. You will gain access to Linux shares only when using a username and password. (We’ll set these later).
load printers – Set this to No if there are no printers connected to the Linux server.
log files – Defines the file that will store Samba events, alerts and errors.
max log size – Sets the maximum size for the log file, in Kb.
socket options – Specifies the options set on the client socket. The TCP_NODELAY option was reported as the option that makes the biggest difference in performance for most networks.
[home]
comment – Used for showing a description related to the user share.
path – Defines the shared directory.
valid users – Sets the users (see /etc/passwd for a valid user list) allowed to access this share.
writable – Allows valid users to write to this shared directory.

then reboot your samba by typing this:

# /etc/rc.d/rc.samba start

then you have your samba now.
