  • 1. FC4: how do I change the default login gui ?
    I am running KDE 3.4.2 on a FC4 machine. After the FC4's installation I have tried to change the default login gui (blue screen with just the user name and password fields) with the kdm gui. Although I have made (as root, of course) the required changes in the Control Center / Login Manager menu, I still have the default login screen. gdm is not installed (I have removed it after installation). However, I can see that the changes took place in the background: after I typed in the user name and password, I can see the background I've chosen for a split second before the KDE desktop and logo kicks in. I've tried unsuccessfully to find help in the KDE's documentation and on fedora channel on IRC/ freenode. What do I need to do in order to have the desired login screen, and not the one that FC put on it by default? Please help. Thank you. Ferdi Badescu.
  • 2. help with vector linux boot
    hi everyone! I am installing a Vector Linux my computer with pentium 300 mhz processor, 64 mb ram and 4.3 gb hard disk. I partitioned it with REiser files system and set a swap partition. Here it goes: everything works fine. My hardware is detected and installed. But the installer missed to allow me to configure the LILO. No LILO configuration menu is offered that is why when it prompts me to restart the computer after the installation, the computer says Non-system disk. I placed my installation CD and type Linux Root=/dev/hda1 and it runs Vector linux. But I want Linux to run with my hard disk only. I think there is nothing in the MBR. Any workaround on this problem? thanks in advance, ian

size of gnome applets?

I'm looking at the memory usage of different gnome applet,
and the size is simple incredible. For example,

gweather-applet  10.7MB
battstat-applet  3.9MB
multiload-applet 6.4MB
cdplayer_applet  5.5MB
gconfd-2         8.2MB

Some of them might be justifiable (e.g. CDplayer), but 10.7MB
for the weather applet, and 6.4MB for multiload-applet???

I know they might share memory in some places, but still,
this is ridiculously bloated. Is there any way to trim
them down? They are nice little tools, but....

My system config:
- RH9, Ximian desktop 2 with metacity
