Time Event
Hrmmm... okay, I don't know what I did, but I seemed to have screwed up gnome somehow... I'm running Gnome 2, and I futzed around with something (my cd burner, trying to get it to work, played with the /etc/fstab, rebooted) and X came up and started to load gnome but stopped and locked up. I shut down the X server and ran startx from the command line, but same problem. So I rebooted the system and it launched just fine into X and loaded gnome. One problem -- I lost the gnome-panel. I can launch it from a terminal from within X just fine, but I or course need to keep the terminal open, which isn't a very fun option. Question: What the hell did I do, and how do I get the gnome-terminal to launch with the rest of gnome?

Is there any way to do packet-writing under Linux?

The only thing I've found is the packet-cd patch, which is based on... well, 2.4.0-test10.

My box has a TDK VeloCD 24x12x10 ATAPI CD-RW drive set up with the kernel (2.4.18, fwiw) SCSI emulation for cdrecord.

If all else fails, yeah, this box theoretically has Windows on it (haven't loaded it since I installed a new hard drive in January, so who knows)... but all my mp3's are on a reiserfs partition (aaaugh).
Recently got a SiPix Stylecam Blink - very dinky, but I can't seem to find any way of downloading pics to Linux. I've done searches for drivers but can't find any, and SiPix aren't any help.

Does anyone have any suggestions or do I have to boot up Windows to load them?
XFree86 listening on only one interface
# netstat -nap | grep :6000
tcp 0 0* LISTEN 2148/X

I want X to only listen on eth1 (, not on all available interfaces (

The closest I can find is -nolisten tcp, but I don't want to stop it listening on everything. I still need to connect to it within my network.

Possible alternatives:

xauth --- no, I don't even want X visible remotely.

iptables rules --- yeah, that'd work, but I'd rather do it with X, if possible.
