Debian woes
Somehow, I got the Debian (3.0r1, woody) base system installed. But I can't get the X server to start!

Collapse )

The video card, by the way, is an NVIDIA GeForce 4 MX 440 (in case you didn't catch that in the log) with 64 MB of RAM. Only using the stable apt sources for now.

I'm contemplating grabbing version 4.3 of X, building a custom 2.6 kernel, and installing the official (non-free, closed source) NVIDIA drivers. Would this help, and how would I go about installing these things "the Debian way"? (Alternative solutions welcomed, naturally.)

Thanks in advance!

When I attempt to connect to the ftp server in Active (PORT) mode, it again pauses at the "LIST -aL" command and half the time, the connection times out at that point.

Is a 1290/219 (Kbps) too slow for an FTP server? Is my school's network slowing everything down? Or is my FTP server configured incorrectly? Ahhhh...
Does anyone know why the fan seems to run at high speed when running linux on my HP laptop? When I am running windows it speeds up when I am using a great deal of cpu power, but low speed when just sitting idle. With linux it seems like the fan is on high speed all the time even when it is sitting idle for a long time.
installing gtk
I'm having an issue with the gtk+ configure script recognizing my XFree86 libraries. I get this error when I run the compiler.

checking for IceConnectionNumber in -lICE... no
checking for XOpenDisplay in -lX11... no
configure: error: *** libX11 not found. Check 'config.log' for more details.
[nachobel@taco gtk+-1.2.10]$

I don't know what to do.
