Linux Application Tip Thread 2.01

I was going through two old Linux threads and thought I would compile the useful stuff into one.

Here are the original threads:
thread one.
thread two.


So, just add anything useful you find or ask if someone knows of a good program, and I'll compile it again if it gets way off track.

Now, on the the useful stuff:

Wine:

vmware:
http://www.vmware.com/


Useful Links:

Installation helps:
Automatix
This is great for one-click installation of Firefox plug-ins, such as Java.

Time to necro this thread. Anyone have any good themes for Fedora Core 5? I'd like to get ride of these gray title/panel bars, and I don't like any of the default options.

I've not used it, but I've heard it's the best way to go for gaming.

I've talked with several people in various forums who use it, and it seems to be the way to go.

I'm not aware of a free version that competes with it.

Damn. I'm not sure it's worth $5 per month to not have to reboot. Thanks though.

What game are you trying to play?
I know it is the recommended app for Guild Wars, and that plain WINE apparently doesn't cut the mustard. I just dual-boot, myself, since I'll have to keep Orifice on-hand for use every so often.

My contribution: K9copy. Clean, easy, no complaints - my equipment is a little shaky, but this app overcame the problems easily.

I've got Fedora Core 3, and a book with it and I still don't understand how to do samba or nfs or vsftp or make it into a simple fileserver, the book assumes you already understand what's goin' on and i don't.

Well, here's something that may help you "grok" the subjects:
Linux is like an erector set - you only bolt on what you want. You may have to bolt on more than one assembly to get the first part to work the way you want it.

Windows is like a rubber band ball, with more than you'll ever reasonably use all wrapped up in an entangled mess (I generally prefer the term "snotwad").

When you're first running setup, you should be able to include the modules you want and it will do all the 'cobbling' for you - I know both SuSe and Core 5 did. Why run Core 3, if I may ask?

I did include everything, I went through it on the custom setup and I picked most of the server utilities, like ftp daemons, samba, and whatnot; the part I have trouble with is the configuration of how to make it work. I set up the samba so that it has a server name, and it's viewable by one of my windows machines. Maybe my machines ride the short bus, but one of them can't see either machine and the other can see the samba server but won't allow itself into it.


The reason I'm using core 3 is because it was given to me. Back when I was in high school I was in a Cisco course (which made me into a CCNA) and there's a nation-wide competition to see who's got the best skillz. It's called Skills Canada. My teacher signed me up for the networking part of it and so we were told we were using fedora and he went out and bought a fedora book, which came with CDs and a DVD. I have this book because I forgot to give it back and found it again and used it. I have Gentoo somewhere in my cd collection but I'm too daunted to use it. I have several copies of Ubuntu flying around. Only fedora has that wonderful, confusing book though.
