Time Event
1:18a
Apache 1.3.26
Does anyone have a location to grab the redhat rpm? I've check RedHat, Up2date, Apache, and Rpmfind. I can't seem to find it except in source form.
7:20a
"could not start process pop3"

Is this a common kmail error? I'm on my way out the door to go to work so I haven't had a chance to google out an answer.

This is on a fresh RH 7.3 install.

Usernames that start with numbers?
Is there any particular reason that a username can't start with a digit? I'm migrating a Windows web server to linux and I have some users with usernames starting with digits. If I add them with useradd I get the following error:

:adduser 12person
adduser: invalid user name `12person'


If I etc /etc/password manually it seems to work just fine. Is it a bad idea to have usernames that start with digits? Is there any way around this? I don't want to do external authentication (AAA, LDAP), it should be local to this box. Any ideas?
