    This is a thread for your silly little questions that don't deserve a thread as well as general discussion.

    I've never heard of it before, and after looking it up, it looks EXTREMELY bare-bones. I would go with Awesome or Openbox (seeing as how this is tiling/floating) out of popularity and extra features (compositing, on-the-fly reloading, multiple monitor support, etc.). If you want to try it, go ahead, but it looks to be either in heavy development or just a bare minimum.

    Just got a free inspiron laptop with a pentium4 in it. Still deciding on the distro, I'm just excited I have something to test distros on and not have to worry about destroying my windows partition. First up is arch.

    Trying to get Postfix to work, but am having a little trouble here. Apparently /etc/postfix/body_checks is not found, but I have no idea what I should do to get it there.

    Here's the relevant part of the maillog:
    May 30 03:29:11 NEON-TEMP1 postfix/postfix-script: starting the Postfix mail system
    May 30 03:29:11 NEON-TEMP1 postfix/master[758]: daemon started -- version 2.3.3, configuration /etc/postfix
    May 30 03:29:11 NEON-TEMP1 postfix/cleanup[762]: fatal: open /etc/postfix/body_checks: No such file or directory
    May 30 03:29:12 NEON-TEMP1 postfix/master[758]: warning: process /usr/libexec/postfix/cleanup pid 762 exit status 1
    May 30 03:29:12 NEON-TEMP1 postfix/master[758]: warning: /usr/libexec/postfix/cleanup: bad command startup -- throttling
    Any idea what I should do? Running CentOS.

    EDIT: Hmm, apparently it didn't find the file for body_checks. Disabled that line for now and Postfix seems to work. Except for a database file that prevents some of its functionality now...

    I'm looking for an alternative to CentOS as a web server because the packages are not kept up to date enough, anybody have any suggestions?

    I don't really have suggestions, but for CentOS you can use alternative repositories, such as remi which has up-to-date versions of e.g. PHP and MySQL.

    I already use remi for PHP and MySQL, I don't really want to build every single out of date package either, I think Debian packages are kept fairly up to date, unless I'm misinformed?

    Got the previous Postfix problem solved (solution in the problem post), but am having a different one. For some reason, I can't use receive mail (something related to TLS, apparently), as Postfix is unable to find a file called "smtpd_scache.db".
    I did a find for this, and apparently it's not even present - where and how should this be generated?

    Exact error from the log:
    fatal: open database /var/lib/postfix/smtpd_scache.db: No such file or directory
    And the line in the config:
    smtpd_tls_session_cache_database = btree:/var/lib/postfix/smtpd_scache
    (The .db is apparently appended automatically)

    Anyone have any experience with Postfix and/or ideas how to fix this?

    Edited:

    Also getting this when trying to send mail to the server:
    Transcript of session follows.

    Out: 220 <insert domain here> ESMTP

    Scientific Linux. It's based of RHEL 6, and CentOS is at RHEL 5.6

    Is it me or does CentOS really have the reputation of "running old shit" instead of "running stable programs"?

    That's to connect and what not.

    If you need to setup the drivers and what not you're out of luck.

    netcfg, setup a profile and add net-auto-wireless to your daemons

    It took me only a while to figure out but I didn't have proper drivers for half a year or so (Only got proper ones when I started experimenting with packet sniffing)

    Just installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my Macbook Pro after deciding I need a non-virtualised Linux machine.

    Dropped a SandForce-based SSD and some extra memory in there before I started, and hot DAMN it starts up quickly. Are there any tweaks I can do to get even more oomph out of the SSD? First time I've used one with Linux.

    Not for Ubuntu but it will probably still apply, there's also info about Mac based computers:

    I heard that Fedora 15 with systemd starts up even faster on SSDs, but I don't have one to test.

    I have Ubuntu 11.04, and I think it's messed up. Whenever I try to install a game, I get the message that there is no install CD inserted. There's nothing wrong with my CD-drive, so I assume the game is just looking in the wrong place for the CD?

    I figured it out thanks to this thread. I didn't hit enter immediately after I input my admin password. I'm glad I figured it out though. This is what I love about the Linux kernel, and one of the main reasons why I'd ultimately like to develop for this shit.

    It tells you what it'll remove before the upgrade I believe..
    Usually it only does upgrades and only removes deprecated shit

    Broadcom b43 or whatever its called. I got a free dell inspiron e1505 from uncle so I decided to use linux on it. I'd like to really give arch a go but the only thing holding me back is this network driver and setting everything up for the network wireless. Everything else is going smooth. I'd give more info on the nic card but I'm blanking on the command that gives all that info.

    I think that most broadcom cards are now supported.

    You need to figure out what driver to install.

    You'll need to install the broadcom-wl module.

    You can follow these instructions:
    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php...ss#broadcom-wl

    Note that I recommend you install the module from AUR (http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=19514)
    This download is listed in the article. It gives you 3 choices or something and this one is the least troublesome.

    If you don't know how to install from AUR just look up AUR on the wiki or ask here. I'll be glad to guide you through.

    If shit goes wrong somehow, you can look at these:

    I'm glad I didn't make another one of these.

    I fixed a weird issue today. Some guy on IRC was trying to `cd` to a folder in his home directory, and he couldn't. No errors, nothing. Tried changing permissions along with a million other things. For whatever reason, though, `cd ~/folder` didn't work, `cd /home/username/folder`, but `cd $HOME/folder` worked just fine.

    As long as you aren't overwriting your Arch install it'll work exactly the same way as if you used a live CD.

    I pretty much figured that after the half ass install I did last time (I quit just before compiling the kernel). Currently, I'm still in Arch with a shell chroot (I did go out for the day; so I'm actually about 5 hours into the install). I'm liking the method that Gentoo uses, but wow is emerge ever slow.

    Currently updating packages 2 of 82 so far.

    I've stopped the package update and removed the gentoo install. It's taking way too long to finish on this comp. Once I get something more powerful I'll pick it up again, but for now, I just don't have the time.
