I have installed tuxtype2 for my daughters to learn typing but every time I launch it the screen goes black as though it will work but not, it returns to the desktop. If I try to launch it from the terminal It gives me a message:
Load settings: Settings file doesn't exists! Settings not loaded!
Load settings: Settings file doesn't exists! Settings not loaded!
Please can anyone tell me how to fix this? Thanks a lot

Does anyone know if it is possible to use rsync to back up an ftp site
that uses a password.
I am aware of rsync://[USER@]HOST[:PORT]/SRC [DEST] but how do I
handle the password?
If this is not possible does it mean I have to use sftp?
Thanks in advance
The scp man page is not very verbose ;-) I want to copy a directory,
recursively, over the lan, but only those files that are new or updated.
MS-DOS could do this back in ...Ummm.... so I can't believe it can't be done
in scp, but I can't see how to do it.
Latest FC6 Respin installation DVD was released on 2007-01-19. Lots of
known FC6 bugs fixed and it uses the latest updated packages as of Jan
11th. If you have had install problems with Core 6 before, you are
encouraged to try installation with this new FC6 Respin DVD.
"The Fedora Unity Project is proud to announce the release of new ISO
Re-Spins of Fedora Core 6. These Re-Spin ISOs are based on Fedora Core 6
and all updates released as of January 11th, 2007. The ISO images are
available for i386 and x86_64 architectures via BitTorrent starting
Thursday, January 18th, 2007. PPC images will follow within the next 5
days, but will have had only limited testing.
This release was delayed while waiting for fixes to known issues with
Fedora Core 6 as well as the creation of a new tool for composing
Re-Spins. Previous releases were built with a homebrew script. This
release was built with the new tool called Pungi, developed by Jesse
Keating, a leading community member and Fedora Release Engineer, with
community input. This tool will be used in future official Fedora
releases and for Fedora Unity Re-Spins. We have joined in this effort to
bring a full featured tool to the Fedora community, enabling anyone to
build Re-Spins and Live-Spins now and in the future."

Forgot to mention 2 things:
1) "exit 0" is not good since the file is included in another script
(I think), so you end up skipping the rest of its parent (where dhcp
You should add something like

around all the settings via "iwconfig"
2) I had to disable ipv6 completely, otherwise my interfaces (both
wireless and cable) were not able to go up and down. They were up once
and then if-down hanged.

Anyone any ideas ?

Also, can yum pull SRPMS and rebuild them ?
I have a rocketraid 1740 controller that I want to use in a soon to be
installed Fedora 7 system. Highpoint's website doesn't have any Fedora
7 drivers, but they do provide a package that will let end users build
the rr1740x module for any 2.4 or 2.6 series kernel.
How would one build the rr1740x module for Fedora 7 if one doesn't have
a Fedora 7 system to build the driver on? Can I install the
kernel-devel package from Fedora 7 on a Fedora 6 host, and build the
module that way? Should I use a Fedora 7 virtual machine (e.g. vmware,

Subject: sandisk sansa m240
I bought a sansa mdisk 240
I can not figure out how to get a playlist on it.
I can get music on it and play the music I get onto it - but not a
I use a shell script to copy files to it - since my mp3's sometimes have
very long file names. When they are copied to the sansa they have names
001.MP3 002.MP3 etc.
It does not play them by file name alphabetical order, I can't figure
out what it does to figure out default play order.
I tried copying a very basic .m3u playlist to it -
I can see the playlist in the sansa but it reports no files when I
select a playlist.
USB settings are set to MSC
Has anyone figured out how to get a playlist onto a sansa m240?
I'm almost wondering if it is something silly like wanting the playlist
to have DOS line breaks - but before I play around too much, I thought
I'd ask if anyone else has done it.
my iPod mini broke :(
That was easy to use in Linux (gtkpod) - but I don't want to buy another
iPod until they make one with a user serviceable battery.
I have the e280 and I've been struggling with this myself.
The playlist format is a specially-formatted UTF-16LE text file. I don't like that either.
I mount mine as a plain USB disk and then use a couple of Python scripts I hand-rolled to create playlists. I actually started writing a little GUI for myself using Qt, but I didn't finish it. Maybe this weekend...
