Ok, what's the deal?!

Why do I suddenly not have the option to post with Public privileges? I had to create the post, submit it as Friends-Only and then edit it to change the privs to public. During the initial post creation, "Show this entry to:" has "Everyone (Public)" greyed-out and not selectable :/.

I can happily confirm that Veritas NetBackup's RedHat2.6 client installer works absolutely perfectly for Slackware 12.1 (tested with a 2.6.26 kernel). So all of you who are stuck with Veritas NetBackup can rest easy.

1. Run the installer
2. Delete the symlinks it creates in /etc/rc.d/rc{x}.d
3. Move /etc/init.d/nbclient to /etc/rc.d/rc.nbclient
4. chmod 755 /etc/rc.d/rc.nbclient
5. Add "/etc/rc.d/rc.nbclient start" to /etc/rc.d/rc.local
6. Add "/etc/rc.d/rc.nbclient stop" to /etc/rc.d/rc.local_shutdown
7. Configure client & server policies on the server.

Worth noting that I use this config for the Slackware clients at the moment:

SERVER = [server-name]
CLIENT_NAME = [client-name]
USEMAIL = [e-mail address]
BUSY_FILE_ACTION = /* repeat 2
After much arguing, this laptop and I have come to a mutual agreement about how to have Slackware 12 configured on it, and I thought I'd let you all in on the secret.

Beware that I'm really not completely done on this, and there's bits I'm not happy with and bits I don't know, but behind the following cut is everything you could possibly need to know about the hardware on the laptop and what has been done to Slackware 12 to make EVERYTHING work. (I didn't say "work well" - I said "work").

I also know that this isn't the best way or place to present the data, but it will do for now.

There is a LOT of information behind this cut. You have been warned!Collapse )
