I have a Lexmark X5650 I want to install on my Slackware 13 desktop server, and I would like to share it on the network. I want to be able to print to it from any PC - the scanner can just...

I would say that for every elitist troll on any given tech forum, there are twenty members that know just as much, if not more that choose to remain in the background - "lurkers" if you will.

But if it doesn't happen in safe mode, that tells me it's likely an auxiliary Startup process.
What sort of keyboard and mouse? USB or PS/2? Wireless?
If it is wireless, you pulled the...

Hey nihil - thanks for your feedback.
I agree - that's why CCleaner (as well as Auslogics Registry Cleaner) are part of "Phase 3," which comes before "Phase 4 - Defragment and Update". Although,...

If you've been repairing computers for as long as some of us have, you have probably come up with your own methodology for what you do when a user complains of a "slow computer".

Can you boot in Safe Mode? Or Safe Mode with Command Prompt? If so, you can attempt a system restore from command line: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/304449
What OS? When's the last time you...

Obviously, the HDMI would get a better picture - in theory...
Hard to say. Why don't you give us the specs of your computer and display device. Also, what problems are you having w/ your VGA and...

Just what I read on Wikipedia a minute ago. What do you want to know? Try Haiku: http://www.haiku-os.org/
I may check it out myself this weekend just out of curiosity. I have an old lappy I need...

DVI. You can buy a DVI to VGA at Best Buy or wherever for like $10-$15 or buy it online for even cheaper....

Just make a folder called C:\Temp or something and put all your crap in there, delete the faulty account and create a new one. Easy as pie. How is it that you're not able to do that? :confused:...

If you're able to log in w/ your girlfriend's account, I would just delete your account and create a new one. I'd back up your personal files (i.e. Documents, Pictures, Music, etc.) to somewhere else...

What caused it to do that do you think?
Can you boot into Safe Mode? Or does the same thing happen?
Does it happen in the other accounts?
If you can boot into Safe...

The fact that he has issues with the machine behind a switch and a second computer connected to the router lead me to believe it is a hardware error or conflict.
January 7th, 2011, 02:39 AM
Well, you have two computers going through a switch to the router - one works fine all the time, the other loses connectivity. A third computer, hooked straight into the router, loses connectivity...

SUSE, OpenBSD, FreeBSD and Mandriva have all been mentioned.
Why have you decided to go away from Ubuntu/Debian?
I personally liked Debian when I tried it many moons ago - but, iirc, it was a...

Meh. Less is more IMHO. Especially on a desktop. I won't even use desktop icons anymore, opting for a dock instead. I certainly don't need an animated wallpaper!
My Slackware 13.0 desktop server...

Wired or wireless?
When you have connection issues, what happens if you release and then renew the IP on either machine? Can you ping Google from either machine?

I added "software picks" section to my website. Do you mean something like this? http://www.jeremydeanonline.com/picks/picks.php

I've tried several other distros, but I always come back to Slack. It's what I know. It's basic, stripped down Linux with everything you need to run a secure web-server...

But was it a PCI card? :confused:
At any rate, I've decided that I'm just going to upgrade the system. I don't care to try my luck with another PCI video card. There's just too many good...

Get a Linksys router from Best Buy and enable logging. Then, if you must, use one of the many free AVs out there. I recommend AVG or Avira, though I myself have not used an anti-virus program in many...

That looks like an OK setup for the price. I found an ASUS I liked better on newegg.com, but I couldn't find the same thing for an equivalent price in the UK.
You might try your...

Merry Christmas to you too my friend! And all of AO! Thanks for the help, the advice and the smart-ass remarks! See you in 2011!

Not at all! You simply shared information. Again - if I or anyone else feels like you were condescending them, well, then that's their problem isn't it? Don't worry so much about what other people...
