It could be a while - my time remaining is bouncing between 29 & 30 minutes. Much longer than the previous start (around 15 minutes), but I expect it is because I am installing more stuff.Bruno, I realize that it's getting late for you AGAIN. Bruno

I'VE GOT GUI!!! All I needed to do on the last install was go ahead & take care of configuring the graphical interface, but I was afraid that I would mess something up. Oh well, live & learn!! BTW - it's not using my video card, I believe that it is using the on-board video - not a problem.No error messages on this install. Very strange - those error messages. I assume that depends on which packages that you install and their interaction?-----------Quint - where are those fireworks? B) :) -------Got to take a break to watch the Belmont Stakes. GO FUNNYCIDE!! We may have a triple crown winner today! B)-----------Running by 6:10 PM EDT - ahead of schedule!! :)

SiebGo to the control center that pops up when you boot up. On there is a link to update your mandrake and most of the things to get you started. I would give you exact details but I am not in Linux right now and it's not the best time to stop everything and change.If you join the Mandrake Club they give you a better update site.

Sieb,UPDATES:Click on the little screen with the wrench on your toolbar, you´ll get a dialog to fill in your rootpassword.then a new window will pop up:Go to Software management and click on mandrake update, it will search for a list of mirrors, pick one of the two last US ones, and it will get a list ( takes time ) .If after you want a faster mirror: click on ¨software Sources Manager¨ and select ¨update source¨ and ¨edit¨ delete the url in there and paste this one in:ftp://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/os/Linux/distr/Man...pdates/9.1/RPMSThat´s a very fast Dutch ftp site !Updates now will be around 200 MB !! Do not install them all at once take a couple at a time, download, install, download, install etc.B) Bruno

Name: webminVersion: 1.070-1mdkSize: 20902 KBSummary: An SSL web-based administration interface for Unix systems.Description: A web-based administration interface for Unix systems. Using Webmin you can configure DNS, Samba, NFS, local/remote filesystems, Apache, Sendmail/Postfix, and more using your web browser.
Webmin also requires a web server to be operational! :DCongratulations! :D Sorry I haven't been following the play-by-play all afternoon. (Too bad about Funnycide :( ) I've been trying to figure out why my server certificate could not be signed by my self-signing Certificate Authority. This is probably all Greek to anyone not trying to setup a secure web server from source. The distros do it for you easily but I need to learn how to do this so I can build a customised secure web server for work.

I never understood why Mandrake wanted to install it in the first place Peachy, we did a minimum install, go figure . . :( :D This was a very weird install anyway !:( Bruno
