|alleycat||I haven't looked in SME for a couple of years|
but at the time, whatever you did without their interface had to announce the effects to their scripts
otherwise you risked having your work undone at the next trigger of their scripts
actually it was pretty nice... as long as you were confortable with THEIR way of doing things
after 2 years I switched to fc1. and then to centos 3
help, i don't know why my FireFox suddenly have started to send new opened windows to the background!!
when i File->New Window
|drbair_laptop||thats a WM option i believe|
|zLinux||it opens the window but behind the current window|
i'm using kde drbair_laptop
|drbair_laptop||pretty sure theres an option in there for that|
|zLinux||but in all other apps the behaviour is very normal|
including gnome apps and kde apps
gtk+ i mean
for example, XChat
|drizze||is there any other or better way to check if u got a certain package installed from command line instead of yum search <string> ?|
|zLinux||only firefox's behaviour has become like this now!!!|
draven, rpm -qa|grep -i packagename
oops i mean drizze
drbair_laptop, but it's not the option you're talking about
drbair_laptop, the problem is ONLY in firefox!!!
drbair_laptop, even Mozilla SeaMonkey is normal!!!
now i have tried to enter About:config it has broken!!!
|DocHolliday||how do i set the time on a centos box?|
|peerce||ntpdate is my favorite way :D|
ntpdate -b ip.of.some.ntp.server
then, put that and maybe a few more ntp servers in /etc/ntpd.conf, and service ntpd start && chkconfig ntpd on
and that will KEEP the time synchronized within a few milliseconds
|DocHolliday||peerce, how can i set it for EST though?|
peerce, i dodnt currently have an ntp server set?
err an ntp.conf file either
|peerce||oh, the time ZONE. um, use the system-config-date tool is one way, otherwise manually, um, (from memory, I might have the paths a bit wrong)... cp /user/share/zoneinfo/EST5EDT /etc/localtime, then edit /etc/sysconfig/clock and set the timezone variable there to also read EST8EDT (or, AMERICAS/New_York or something like that)|
ah, its America/New_York
you may have to yum install ntpd ... let me double check the syntax on all that.
|DocHolliday||ooh dumb me, hwclcock was set wrong|
