    Thanks Devils Casper!

    I am running Slackware 13.1 and just replaced my old PS2 keyboard with a USB one, but couldn't change selection in Lilo. Enabling legacy USB support in BIOS solved it.

    By rights this should be posted in a new thread. But anyway, which live distro are you using? To change file permissions you have to be a root user, and you have a couple of options:

    Perhaps open source may be too much to hope for at this point, but it's still good news I think.

    Even if they released the drivers in RPM format and set up a repository, would it really be so bad?
  8. Good news for ATi users - better driver support promised

    In my opinion this can only be good news: Slashdot | AMD Launches New ATI Linux Driver

    I eventually sorted this. I opened a terminal as root and used the command:
    smbpasswd -a [username]

    I have now wound the security down tightly and have a fully functioning network server.

    Thanks for that! Adesklets looks good, although I think I'll try karamba first. I have now seen the karamba section in kdelook, so it was under my nose all this time!
