Samba Problem Fedora 3



I cannot print from a winXp machine to a Fedora server? Smb.conf has
public = yes and guest ok = yes. On the same workgroup with no domain. I
can clearly see the file shares which are also public. 
Log files show WERR_ACCESS_DENIED over and over. 

Help please!!! 
Thanks

I just tried to run "yum update" this evening and this happened:


There was a problem importing one of the Python modules
required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was:

   /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/cElementTree.so: undefined symbol:
PyUnicodeUCS4_DecodeUTF8

Please install a package which provides this module, or
verify that the module is installed correctly.

It's possible that the above module doesn't match the
current version of Python, which is:
2.4.1 (#2, May  3 2005, 17:14:18)
[GCC 3.2.2 20030222 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.2-5)]

If you cannot solve this problem yourself, please go to
the yum faq at:
  http://wiki.linux.duke.edu/YumFaq


Any ideas?

Alastair

I'm having problems with Tvtime, and would like to take a screen shot of
what 
Tvtime is displaying, but can't remember the incantation to take the 
screenshot.

This is on FC2 using KDE.

Have you tried KSnapshot, assuming it is in FC2's KDE

Thanks for the feedback Anne. I installed xawtv on FC2, havn't created 
a .xawtv file in my /home/user directory yet, but even though it has
created 
a menu item in KDE, when I click on it I don't get anything, just a
bouncing 
cursor which fizzles out. I'll continue working on it. 

What I'm mainly concerned with, is why, having screwed up Tvtime, when I

remove it, and reinstall it, it's still screwed up, and as far as I can
see 
all config files were removed when I removed it, and the reinstall is
done 
from the RPM that is in /var/cache/apt/archives, which should be clean
and 
untouched. 

It's a bit annoying that if I want to watch TV on the computer, I have
to use 
that other OS. Of course, I could just go upstairs and watch the TV, but
it 
would be nice to get it going on the computer.

Nigel.

The syncing/unmount is a bug and is being worked on.

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=194296

I had a major problem with a trashed file system on a memory card due to

this bug.

You need to access the web interface in the router. For Linksys I think
it is at 192.168.0.1. One of the options should tell you the IP of the
router.

With permissions 750 only root and member of the root group could run

I suspect the asking for the root passwd is a function of the program
run not its permissions.

The suggestion is that you use sudo not su which are different things.
Using sudo it is possible to have specific users be able to run root
executable programs, while other users could not.

As I said, I don't have a tv card installed.   I was using xawtv for
video 
capture from my analogue camcorder.  I've just fired up tvtime, and it
does 
look very similar.  I'll try to find time to set up a capture and see
whether 
I can get it working.  I'll report back, but I can't guarantee that it
will 
be tomorrow.

Subject: RAID-5 making big partition fails

Hi,

I have a 12 disk RAID-5 hardware RAID with an ARECA card.
This is under FC5,  2.6.17.6 kernel. The areca driver correcly reports
5Tb diskspace on this unit, shown as /dev/sdc:

# fdisk /dev/sdc
Disk /dev/sdc: 4999.9 GB, 4999998341120 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 607881 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System

-------
However, when I am trying to create one big partition with 5Tb size:

First cylinder (1-73183, default 1): 1
Last cylinder or +size or +sizeM or +sizeK (1-73183, default 73183):

It does allow me ONLY to create a 560Gb partition.
Anyone knows the reason?

I also tried 'gparted', but the same problem.

I see the following logs in dmesg in the meantime:

sdc : very big device. try to use READ CAPACITY(16).


My kernel config is at:
http://www.cfa.harvard.edu/~gbakos/cf7/config

Help appreciated.

Cheers,
Gaspar

Hi Colin. Thanks for that. it takes a snapshot ok, but the snapshot
doesn't 
look like what I am seeing on the screen.

Tvtime usually has a blue screen, and this is what the snapshot shows,
but 
what I am seeing on the screen, is a screen composed of bluey green and
pink 
horizontal lines, and probably the bottom 15% of the screen is a green
pixel 
soup. I've no idea what I've done to screw up Tvtime. Removing it and 
reinstalling it just brings up the same mess.

I'm beginning to think that as Win XP was the original preinstalled OS
on this 
this machine, that it has jinxed it, so that I can only watch TV on it
using 
XP.lol

You've gotta just laugh sometimes, otherwise you'll go nuts.

Nigel.

It would be interesting to know the real answer to this question. Advice
distributed usually say have one location be a soft link to the other.

I am still not sure what your problem really is. If you are connected to
the Internet what are you trying to determine? But if you are trying to
find out the ip address to the modem and or router it seems to me using
a traffic monitoring program like tcpdump, nmap or tethereal would allow
you to find out the ip of machines you machine is communicating with.
One of them must be at the ip of your router. You router should have a
web interface that will tell you the ip assigned by the DHCP server of
your ISP.

That the technical people of your ISP can't tell you how to do this is
very strange. Chauvinism would make me think that the CS department or
the Computer Center at the Technion could help you with this.

That sounds like your monitor may not be able to track some
resolution change that's taking place.
