Reading some mails on the GIMP mail list, I ran across the procedure
to install some more fonts for not only Gimp, but the system and
StarOffice to use also. Well, I installed the fonts, went to the
shell and issued the command xset fp+ <font directory> and then the
rehash command and all fonts are there! Ok, that went well, but each
time I restart the system, I have to do it all over again? Is there
a way to make it permanent and read the new fonts like it does the
ones the system installs or is that a no-no?
end of line
xset fp+ <new font directory>
xset fp rehash

I don't remember seeing this problem on the list.
KMail print on screen is clear and most letters are
separated. When I print out a mail, some letters,
particularly the "t", the "si" and the "sk" combinations
are scrunched together with adjoining letters.
I am printing to an HP 2200D laserjet. The
typeface on screen (and on paper) is a
sans-serif font. Even on screen, it is slightly
scrunched in spots. "ri" and "ti" and "tt" and "th" are
too close together.
While attempting to stop a video playing on Macro Media Flash Player 7,
I managed to lock out everything. I could not move the mouse cursor,
the arrow keys and the rest of the kb didn't work, ctl-alt-del did nothing.
None of the function keys did anything. (The video was something downloaded
from the 'net via Firefox.) I wound up pulling the big switch, as us hams
like to say. Is there anything else I could have done?
I'm trying to put Linux to practical use, and this is the first time I've seen
10.0 crash, so it's good, but not fool-proof. (If something can be broken,
this fool will break it!)
I have a 4-year old DELL desktop with a heavy CRT monitor that I'm going
to give away soon .
I also have a 2 month old laptop. Both computers run Linux/SuSE.
I would like to buy an external disk to save most of my s/w
development now residing on my old desktop.
But I would like to be able to use it also with my laptop.
Both computers have some USB ports so I daresay an external USB disk
would be fine ..
I'd appreciate some suggestion about a USB reliable, large capacity but
portable, external disk or
any alternative solution.
Thank you in advance.
I have a fileserver running SuSE 8.0 with 2 IDE Drives and a
SCSI RAID (RAID5). The system boots up to one of the IDE drives,
and the SCSI RAID drive runs as a mounted filesystem (/dev/md0).
(all filesystems are REISERFS).
The SCSI RAID drive has crashed (won't boot up), and I need to
recover it (repair it, through some utility).
The software does not seem to want to mount the disks, even though
the SCSI BIOS (Adaptec) recognizes the disks, and they are listed as
I tried to repair the disk(s) (with reiserfsck), but it produced an
reiserfs_open: bread failed reading block 2
reiserfs_open: bread failed reading block 16
reiserfs_open: neither new nor old reiserfs form found on /dev/md0
The literature suggested that this error message is hardware related
(either a disk is physically damaged, or maybe the RAID isn't
recognized), but again, the disks are recognized (and therefore,
so is the SCSI Card).
I tried to boot up with SuSE CD 1 in Recovery mode, but not sure
what to do there (i.e., after the root prompt - just run reiserfsck?).
Literature suggests there are plenty of tools to handle disk recovery,
and especially RAID support, I can't find reference to them
The installation of the RAID was trivial (using the YAST2
partitioning GUI window on startup), and yet recovery seems to be a
mystery. This can't be right.
Does anyone know where there are "decent" and "usable" recovery tools?
OR ... does anyone know what "specifically" to do in this case? Can
I re-partition without formatting, and recover the existing data?
Any help is appreciated - I'm sure I'm missing something "obvious", but
can't find "obviously" what to do in the literature, docs, etc.

What are people using for anti-virus software? I've got BitDefender
running on my machine, but I'd like to find something zero-cost that
has a nice GUI so that when I set up boxes for friends and family,
they can use it.
Regularly (and automatically) updated virus definitions are a must,
I need a command line based packet sniffer. (I would use tethereal but
this system has no graphical stuff.) ALl it needs to do is collect raw
packets for analysis by ethereal on a different box.
