    Re: RCP -- how does it work?

    The first thing I found out in 9.10 was that it did as you said, rcp is just a symbolic link to scp. So it doesn't work.

    But the question still stands: does rcp use telnet login? rlogin method?...

    RCP -- how does it work?

    I'm trying to figure out the requirements for rcp. Does it lean on telnet login? rlogin? rsh? Or is it a self-contained shell program? Is it a NFS client?

    Well, I'll post what I've found, and what I believe is correct.

    Compiled from source programs don't need the line: only ones that are installed via something like APT, using sudo apt-get install...

    Hi,

    I am compiling some software from source. Specifically, Netatalk. Also, I'll probably have to compile Engima from source.

    Do I need this line after I have run the sudo make and sudo make...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: Cannot Change Screen Resolution (Due to not being able to SEE THE BUTTONS)

    You say you loaded it to a flash drive, perhaps you could describe what version it was? 12.04? 12.10? 13.04? ...?

    I will assume the keyboard works on another computer? Mouse available?

    Perhaps...

    @ Sector11

    The regular line vnstat -i eth0+wlan0 -m works now. Perhaps I failed to communicate that in the post. =)

    Re: Help a windows user switch to ubuntu?

    Seconded on the live CDs and the dual-booting. Or, VMs.

    There are at least a hundred different types of Linux but you'll want to stick to the main types. Distrowatch has the most popular ones.

  13. [all variants] Re: New Linux Install - Large Number of Updates Typical?

    It's not unusual at all.

    The .iso is issued at a certain time, and then afterwards updates trickle down the pipe. After some time, a large number of the install .iso packages are out of date.

    Please pull up a Terminal command line and type

    ifconfig

    You can also paste the results of

    iwconfig

    Use Control + Shift + C to copy text outside of the terminal.

    Yeah, I was poking around small distros last year and came across two likely candidates: PuppyLinux and DSL.

    I think you are right from memory that DSL does have a conky script by default.
