what do you need fixe d?
(Action) wonders what a tunepimp is and why it just got updated on his big emerge
Gwydion-
the mail method you suggested
there's no man page for aliases.db
theBear
oh that... yeah... you caught me on a good day
umm... k... lemme just login to the machine
try man aliases :)
Gwydion-
ah ha
super
theBear
oh .. thats right (he said after scrambling his terminal) ... there is some command or little util that converts the flat text aliases to aliases.db and etc for the otehr files
Gwydion-
yeah, new aliases
err
newaliases
theBear
oh... my one looks like the default one... lots of stuff for the rfc like news: usenet
usenet: root
Gwydion-
yeah, I have all that already
theBear
oh... i did it all in virtual on that machine...
wow.... i set up a whole dynamic dns domain for junkmail and forgot about it :)
i haven't looked at this thing for years :)
model name : Pentium 75 - 200
Linux kent 2.4.18-27.7.x #1 Fri Mar 14 06:58:54 EST 2003 i586 unknown :)
Gwydion-
hehe
theBear
last non-gentoo machine i've even got access too currently
Gwydion-
can I see j00r config and aliases file?
theBear
ok then.... i'm gonna have a nap (late night work today and tomorrow) ....
oh....
         

Gwydion-
okee
theBear
i suppose maybe... lemme look at it
Gwydion-
have a nice nap :D
theBear
hmm...
k... you can see the short version of main.cf if you don't try to use it aginst me... and err
my aliases is 100% unmodified
Gwydion-
lol
theBear
half the reason i don't like this system is 'cos it uses local users for local domain, and virtuals ONLY for virtuals, but i'm sure EITHER pam or a sneaky fake-virtual delivery postfix setup like i use now could get around it....
Gwydion-
well, thanks for the help :)
theBear
on new systems i'm setting all deliveries as virtual agent, then (from memory) that means that the user database (in this case postfix,) gets used for ALL the users, not just virtual domain ones, and therefore you can keep your system clean with only 1 postfix user rather than one for each client you want locally... but of course i'm sure pam can do that with the setup i just shower you
mmm.. good luck... i'll be back in a few hours

I'm having a few problems here. If anyone could help, I'd be grateful. It's been a while since I used gentoo, and last time everything went smoothly. This time, I'm having issues with ipw2200 and ati-drivers.
The ati-thing first. I've done everything described in the howto and the various troubleshooting guides I've found, but fgrlxinfo still reports the damn Mesa libraries being in control of OpenGL.
if I try opengl-update --get-implementation, it reports ati.
Isn't "eselect opengl set ati" supposed to knock out the mesa libs?

Welcome to our next contestant, traumahound!

I got the system to boot. I had to play with several differant CD-ROM readers, AND get the termination proper.
...of course, I forgot to plug the hard drive power in, and I took it out to verify the jumpers... and then... I dropped it.
...and it's a quantum, so you can do the math.
traumahound
i shouldn't have a problem with an 8x agp card in a 4x slot since its 3.0 compliant? i mean only worry with agp is voltage right? and if its 3.0 compliant it should do 0.8 just fine?
zia
try and fry
traumahound
its not my box i don't wanna pay for it.
bios says its agp 3.0 compliant. its a cheap ass biostar board.
but it can only do 4x max
its got a fx5500 in it though.

shh Spion-, it's quiet time now

i need to allow someone shell access to a remote gentoo server to do web developement on an apache install, but dont want to give him root - any advice on the proper methodology to go about this?
Psych
a bush
traumahound
http://www.tjw.org/chroot-login-HOWTO/
and i'd also consider putting them n a group so they can write to the dirs in the web root.
alephnull
yeah for some reason i thought /var/www/localhost/htdocs/ was root:apache and id just slap him in apache
but its not that simple, of course
traumahound
you'll have to change the perms on the web root
give the group write access but not everybody.
alephnull
in addition to that article?
thanks for the advice, btw
traumahound
that article is just how to do a chroot login. that is only gonna stop them from surfing the disks.
and they may need access to other sh*t so unless you wanna clutter up your webroot with it i'd scratch that idea.
still half asleep.
alephnull
all he should need access to is mysql and the webroot..
in practice its not a huge deal if he goes elsewhere - its a fresh install; but the princeple and the idea of it isnt appealing.
traumahound
mysql should be pretty straight forward.
alephnull
yea
that page sounds like a long way around the http://www.jmcresearch.com/projects/jail/
traumahound
i'd just chown the web root to a group, put them in that group, give them write access in that group, and let them have at it. then change it back when they are done.
just don't make things world writable.
alephnull
that sounds like the practical thing to do to me
traumahound
if its a fresh install shouldn't be anything sensitive they don't need to see.
even if they have access to the drive shadow is still safe. only thing i'd really be worried about... other than maybe their code.
