Time Event
I'm running fedora core1, fresh install last night.

before I left for work today, I started a "yum upgrade" on the system to bring it up to date.

now I'm SSHed into the box, I can see the process running, (pid:3938, ppid:3883) and I'd like to bring it to the foreground of my ssh window so I can keep an eye on it.

root is still logged in locally at home (hey, it's a blank install, I'm not worried about security yet).

Is there any way I can take over the process, or the entire login session?
I thought "fg 3938" would do it, but that returns "no such job"

full 'ps' listing is:
root 3938 3883 0 0657 tty1 00:00:11 /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/yum update

any thoughts welcome!

email events
I want to setup an account on my box that will run a script whenever it receives an email from my other email addresses. I'm not sure where to look or what to search for to find resources on this, though. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

[Edit: Mmm.. sendmail aliases. Sometimes the answer is so obvious you don't even consider it.]
Authenticating user logins against active directory
I've been wrestling with this for a couple days.

I'm trying to get a Fedora machine to allow logins against the active directory accounts.
It's a pretty simple network we have here.

We have one Win2k DC, and the DC also holds some shares that contain user files.
We don't even have anything fancy like "true" roving profiles. Users usually just save their work on the local machines, and if they want to have it backed up, they ship it up to the shares on the DC.

What I want:
Let's say there's an account "weegan" on the DC,
And there's no such account on this fedora box.

I want to be able to punch in the login "weegan," and have access to the network shares that I have
permission to access on the windows DC.

It seems like it should be easy. But i've been having no luck, and it's taking way too long.

inputdevices in X
I have a powerbook (builtin keyboard, trackpad) with a USB wireless keyboard/mouse (seperate USB devices, not a combo). They both work, even with only one inputdevice section for keyboards and one for mice. However, I would like to get them to all use seperate inputdevice sections so I can configure them seperately (for instance I want to reverse the buttons on the USB mouse, and the USB keyboard has extra buttons I want to configure).

My XF86Config-4 has two inputdevice sections for each, but the second ones aren't being used (when I take ZAxisMapping off the first mouse the USB mouse no longer has it). Anyone wanna tell me what I'm missing/doing wrong?

**UPDATE**: I got it to recognize the two mice seperately. Now I need to reverse the buttons on the second mouse, but I'm not sure how. I don't think xmodmap will work because I need the first mouse to stay the same, and that's all my searching has turned up so far.

PS - I finally got that weather thing I was looking for, found it in an easily digestible format at NOAA. Perl is coming along well, you can see my taskbar picture here (on the bottom right). WARNING: it's a huge file.
Apache ...
I'm trying to set up my web server but I'm having a problem. I'd like to be able to type the URL to my page and not to have to type 'index.htm.' It seems to work with 'index.html' but not .htm. I tried to change it in httpd.conf.

Something like this:
# DirectoryIndex: Name of the file or files to use as a pre-written HTML
# directory index. Separate multiple entries with spaces.
IfModule mod_dir.c
DirectoryIndex index.html

All help will be apprecciated.

Current Mood: aggravated
