Time Event
Fluxbox Error:
Ok so here's the deal:
I was at Panera Bread (complete w/ free wireless) before work today. I was crunched for time and i lack a internet source @ home for my laptop running Gentoo** so i just downloaded fluxbox-0.1.14 (instead of emerging it) from the fluxbox website to my computer. Once i got to work i extracted the files to a folder i made named "fluxbox" then in the fluxbox-0.1.14 folder i ran the ./configure command. That ran fine. Then once i ran the make command i got the following error:

fluxbox.cc: In member function 'void Fluxbox::save_rc()':
fluxbox.cc:1976: error: 'B_EuropeanDate' undeclared (first use of this function)
fluxbox.cc:1976: error: {Each undeclared identifier is reported only once for each function it appears in.)
fluxbox.cc: In member function 'void Fluxbox::load_rc(BScreen*)':
fluxbox.cc:2324: error: 'B_AmericanDate' undeclared (first use of this function)
make[3]: *** [Fluxbox.o] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory '/root/fluxbox/fluxbox-0.1.14/src'
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory '/root/fluxbox/fluxbox-0.1.14/src'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2
koolaid fluxbox-0.1.14 #

According to the read me file, i needed to run make, then make install after the ./configure and i would have been good to go.

Anyone have any clue as to how to fix the error, so i can get fluxbox running on my laptop?

All help's appreciated.

**I got a Linksys ethernet card for my laptop the other day and i looked in a ethernet install guide and the driver is named "tulip" where can i find it, or would anyone be able to help me so that i can load it as a module, so i can get my cable internet @ home to work w/ my ethernet card and laptop?

Once again, Thanks.
Jukebox Hero?
I've finally upgraded my file server to the point where I can put a realistic jukebox system on it, rather than using command-line mpg123. Unfortunately, there's an embarrassment of riches in choices for this. Can anyone recommend web-controlled jukebox software? Running Linux, obviously, apache 1.3. I've got perl and python installed on it now, those being my strengths, but I'm completely cool with a php route.
Thanks for any suggestions..
Backup server
Alright, Linux newbie here. Been messing around with computers for a while now, PC/Windows tech for a living, but never touched Linux.

Now, I need to build a backup server to store client disk images, and I decided to use it as my platform to get into Linux (the other option is to use Win2K with Symantec Ghost Corporate Edition, which, um, cost a good deal of money).

I need a solution that will let me make a live CD compatible with a bunch of various network cards to boot the client systems from, dump the hard drive image onto server or restore it from server, then boot the client back without actually installing anything. An option to extract single files from image is a nice bonus.

Any tips/pointers? Am I being too ambitious, should I maybe start with something simpler?

Edit: thinking about it, server-side, a Samba server would be plenty good enough. What I need to do, is when a system comes in, make a full drive image of it so that if I screw something up while trying to fix it, I can always go back to square one and start over, armed with knowledge of what doesn't work. It's the client-side portion I have problems with - I could use Ghost I suppose, but it's a real pain with network card drivers, and many modern cards don't have DOS drivers at all.
upgraded kernel, lost X
Okay, I upgraded my kernel to 2.6.5, running slackware 9.1 with dropline gnome. As soon as I upgraded the kernel, I lost X. When I try to run it, I get an error about my screen.

I can't seem to work out how to cut and paste into links, so I have uploaded the error file to my webpage. Sorry about this. I know it is a clunky solution.


Thanks for any assistance you can provide.
BTW, this is a Dell Inspiron 2100 laptop. Thanks.

EDIT - Fixed. Thanks all.

Current Mood: confused
