<ShawnM> The important part is the ability to share outlook appointment scheduling, as an exchange server would. if i can't find a suitable linux equivolent then the company will end up using MS Exchange which neither of us wants.
<_syn> userme, you need to setup a cvs server, aka "cvs -pserver", and then the developers can setup their eclipse to connect to the cvs server.
<kaos01> _syn, can i ask whay sort of problems you have encountered ?
<userme> ok to do "cvs- pserver" i should go to the server that cvs installed right and do that command
<kaos01> userme, i think on fedora you just edit /etc/xinetd.d/cvspserver
<_syn> userme, you should find a pserver howto
<_syn> userme, be careful, there are many cvs howtos that do things many different ways, so remember, you want pserver, so don't get distracted.
<userme> pserver ??? is that version of cvs
<userme> does RH9 come with that
<_syn> kaos01, yeah. when the cvs clients would use extssh:, getting cvs on the server side to use a group friendly umask
<_syn> userme, it's an option of the `cvs` command.
<_syn> userme, but it must be started carefully, normally using a script and such.
<_syn> userme, it should be started by a non root user, maybe even chrooted
<userme> so when i do cvs -pserver basically i am installing if i can say that a special version of the cvs
<_syn> because, the cvs pserver, is just as powerful as a shell, your basically giving out shell access
<kaos01> _syn, cant you just set the sticky bit on the repository directory and create a group say cvs ?
<kaos01> userme, my guess is, for red hat look in /etc/xinetd.d/cvspserver
<_syn> kaos01, possibly. could you try it and let me know?
<kaos01> is there a past e bot or something around ?
<kaos01> _syn, i think thats what we are using
<userme> thanks syn i appreciate your help so much
<userme> thank you kaos01 for the help too
<kaos01> userme, i was gona paste you my config file
<ShawnM> btw http://www.openexchange.com/
<`russia> i hate xinetd
<`russia> inetd > xinetd
<RedACE> in soviet russia, xinetd hates you
<_syn> does anyone have any comments on running cvs as root from xinetd?
<_syn> I mean, cvs -pserver ?
<_syn> as root?
<ShawnM> that's what i do. *shrug*
<_syn> asking for a root compromise, http://www.gentoo.org/security/en/glsa/glsa-200312-08.xml
<AlexB> There's no sane reason to do that.
<AlexB> And pserver should only be used for anonymous CVS-access. Combine it with SSH for everything else.
<_syn> how do I make cvs work for multiple users over ssh using the extssh: option ?
<kut1> anyone familiair with oidentd?
<kaos01> _syn, why would you run it as root ?
<_syn> kaos01, I was looking at your xinit.d config section
<kaos01> _syn, i think what I told you about setting group permissions and sticky bits should do it
<_syn> kaos01, ok. I'm gonna try it again.
<RedACE> shake harder, boy!
<Idle`> Phaid: I found out that theres methods already being built to add mice, etc, on the fly to X
<Idle`> xorg 6.8.0 and forward have DMX, which as far as I can tell, does just that. :D
<Idle`> I just need to figure out how to add the dmx extensions....
<Idle`> RedACE: what?
<RedACE> oops, nm
<RedACE> that was something else
<Idle`> hmm, may have found it...
<Idle`> 1 sec
<Gecko> no record for 'md0' in database
<Gecko> Kernel panic - not syncing: I/O error reading memory image
<Gecko> i get that after a reboot on a fresh install
<Idle`> what the deuce!?
<Gecko> i'm doing software raid where md0=swap and md1=/
<Gecko> the install appears to go fine during install time, on reboot... grub loads and then BAM! :P
<RedACE> hahah deuce
<Idle`> holy fsck... I'm installing Xdmx at home.... this looks sweet
<Nicpon> what is <CR><LF>.<CR><LF> on the keyboard
<Idle`> its <enter>.<enter>
<Idle`> you reading the 'mail' manpage?
<Nicpon> no just testing mail server and it says to end data press <CR><LF>.<CR><LF> hehe
<Idle`> yea, :D
<Idle`> it means a . on a line by itself
<Nicpon> i did that and nothing happens
<RedACE> it's a cheat code for full health and full mana
<Nicpon> how do i end this then ?
<Idle`> RedACE: porkcharsui!
<Idle`> Nicpon: uh, .
<Idle`> like that ^
<Idle`> try ctrl-d if that fails
<Nicpon> haha nothing works it funny
<Idle`> or is it ]... can never remember...
<Nicpon> ok I lost connection now, lemme try again
<Idle`> its normally just a . on a line by itself
<Nicpon> yeah it was working this time, i dunno why it wasnt the first time. Anyway can use perl in hash file for postfix. I have helo access restrictions in hash db file can i use prel regexpr there ?
<Idle`> that I dont know... :(
<Idle`> ****... this isn't good...
<Idle`> been running my laptop for 30 mins and its 20% down
<Idle`> 07:59:00 up 189 days, 15:39, 2 users, load average: 0.07, 0.02, 0.00
<Idle`> wrong machine
<Idle`> thatd be a hell of an uptime on battery
<Idle`> 07:59:06 up 33 min, 5 users, load average: 0.08, 0.03, 0.04
<Idle`> yea... thats bad
<Idle`> a whopping 3 hours battery life...
<Phaid> that's higher than most laptops
<Phaid> 2-2.5 hours is typical
<Phaid> even with cpu scaling and drive spindown
<Idle`> I should speedstep this and spindown the drive
<RedACE> I get 4 on mine
<Idle`> Phaid: any tips on spindown'ing the drive?
<Idle`> I dont have stepping enabled right now... well, its 'enabled', just at T0
<Phaid> Idle` mount your drives noatime and use noflushd
<Phaid> and don't use a journaling fs
<Idle`> dang... reiser4 would be a bad idea then eh? ;)
<Idle`> well, too late now
<Idle`> way too late...
<Phaid> also a good idea to use the - option in syslog.conf, to keep it from flushing writes to the disk
<Idle`> I dont run syslog on this laptop
<Idle`> (forgot to add it to init, and am just too lazy to add it now)
<Idle`> besides, I rarely need it
<Phaid> see the problem is jounaling fs's flush their cache at regular intervals
<Phaid> so all those writes defeat things like noflushd
<Idle`> I know, I just didn't think about that when installing
<Phaid> you can tune the fs to flush less often, but that's dangerous and makes it more likely to lose data than a regular fs
<Idle`> I used a journaling FS cause I didn't wanna loose data in case it ran out of power... I know now that was a mistake... :P
<Idle`> ah well, stepping the cpu back to 230mhz should make up for that...
<Idle`> suprisingly it runs rather quick at that speed
<Idle`> anyhow, routing cl***... I've gotta go hold some hands....
<RedACE> I want to get just the directory from a path in a shell script.. what's the opposite of basename?
<gauze> RedACE: dirname
<RedACE> thank you
<gauze> good morning btw
<sh0rty> HOW CAN I UNDO A "RM" IN BASH?
<sh0rty> sorry caps!
<Phaid> you pretty much can't, unless you're using ext2
<Phaid> then you can use mc and try to recover the deleted files
<Phaid> which, good luck with that
<sh0rty> my god...
<SufferAll> restore from tape
<sh0rty> from tape? :-o
<sh0rty> i need those files, doooh
<Phaid> probably shouldn't have rm'd them then huh?
<sh0rty> i wrote rm insted of mv
<Mr_Z> im a bit new to apt .. i wanted to add an ftp site to it .. how do i do it ?
<Mr_Z> using debian ..
<Trey> sh0rty: hard lesson
<sh0rty> Mr_Z: apt-get install pure-ftpd
<jjshoe> mornin phaid
<sh0rty> Mr_Z: look in /etc/apt/sources
<][aDEs> can i export X displays using a command line vnc server? I'd like to be able to connect to my slackware box using vnc and have it run kde so I can see a desktop
<sh0rty> or write apt-setup
