Rats --- don't know what I was smoking yesterday, as the problem is back now. :(

All I did was reboot, start/stop gdm a couple of times, and change a greeter theme for a look see

I also tried a different VNC client, but the problem is still there.

This is driving me nuts :evil:

A bit of a guess here, but I remember reading somewhere that v1.6 xboxen do not work the same with respect to fanctl/temperatures, when compared with those models that came before.

Not 100% sure what the difference are. Perhaps v1.6 xbox doesn't report the temperature?

Anybody care to confirm?

Ok, problem solved. I just upgraded to gdm version gdm-2.6.0.9-r2 Emerging config was a bit of a nightmare especially /etc/x11/gdm.conf. I generally went with new config options. However it looks like my config needs some tweaking still - I want to put back xvkbd on login screen for example. Could b...

Firstly let me say that the whole X11, VNC (server, client) thing confuses the heck out of me. <snipped> Is the problem is that gdm is a display manager and not the X server?!? Well I'm still confused, but providing more info: Doing a ps -ejH is slightly enlightening, viz: 3815 3815 3815 ? 00:00:00...

Auto-fscking when improperly shutdown

Firstly apologies to Shallax, with whom I have already annoyed with an email about this! ;) However, I thought it was a good enough suggestion to warrant a post here allowing others to comment, and potentially so it doesn't get forgotten. What I would like is for there to be an automatic (ie forced)...

Help requested: VNC display corruption after gdm restart

Hi, Firstly let me say that the whole X11, VNC (server, client) thing confuses the heck out of me. :? So with that said... Has anybody else noticed that restarting gdm causes VNC's display to corrupt? (Yes, I know you loose the connection, but I'm talking about the image when you reconnect). FYI, my...

Change 'magic' to give help without network access

Hi all, This is a request to improve magic's friendliness to n00bs, like myself. 'magic' should have a command line option (e.g. help, --help, -h, --h) that tells you briefly what 'magic' is and how to use it. Why? Well there is no help otherwise, and typing "man magic" will definitely confuse you (...

Notes on Apache install

Hi, Just thought I add some comments regarding nobspangle's updated HOWTO, but from a Home 4.0 perspective. As of the 17th July 05(*), only apache2, php, and mod_php are required to be installed as Home 4.0 already comes with the following preinstalled packages: - mysql version 4.0.24 [*up-to-date] ...

Make 'magic' cache and utilize unpatched kernel source

Hi, My suggestion is to modify the kernel patch script so that it stores "virgin" 2.4.22 kernel source (archive) somewhere, and then uses this 'cache' whenever a new patch is required by copying the source to /usr/src/, then applying diffs and compiling as always... Currently, everytime there is a k...

Magic and Kernel patches... Installation issues

Hi, I'm confused over what should happen when you use magic to install a kernel patch, by just typing "magic". Every time I run "magic" (on a Pro1.1 install; software "mod" only), magic wants to install a new kernel. Is this normal? [Yes, I understand that when patches are released a new kernel need...
