View Full Version : Questions after F6 setup, network, some crashes, misc

19th May 2007, 01:22 AM

Some years ago I used a lot Slackware (7 to 10.1), got used to the pkgtool, doing everything manually etc.

I gave a try on Slackware 11 which I didn't like because out-of-date software, some libs, lack of support of 64bits and a headache to get the system setup. For the first time in my life I tried something other than Windows/Slackware/FreeBSD... I tried Ubuntu x86_64, had many problems because it wouldn't support many 32 bits applications, and it was just too easy, I don't like it too automatized *lol*.

I finally installed Fedora Core 6 x86_64, the main problem I encontered was the nvidia driver that is incompatible (nv VS 6600gt), but its all solved now. I googled a lot but I do still have some questions :(

#1 - Network

I couldn't find a easy way to configure my network, unfurtunally I lost a neat guide on how to configure IPTABLES. I need to port forward some ports to another computer connected to mine.

Cable Modem > Fedora PC( > ( 2003 Server (HTTP, Game Server, SMTP, MySQL)

I need to forward some ports to this computer... 27017 TCP+UDP, 27020 UDP, 25 TCP, 8080 TCP, 2035 UDP. I tried to do it with Firestarter but couldn't figure out how to do it. I also need the rules to be set when I start the computer, which I used to do using a script on Slackware.

On Fedora my external IP starts with 189, on Windows and other distributions it starts with 201 or 200 :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused:

How can I get the Gnome Network icon on the traybar like Ubuntu? I've downloaded gnone-netstatus package but I can't find how to add it there, it's really useful to me as it glows when there is some network activity.

#2 Graphics

I installed the kmod-nvidia modules for x86_64 but with some beryl settings like Snapping Windows the computer freezes, not only the X, I need to restart it all. The rest of Beryl is working fine!

#3 Games

Running Quake 3 and Doom 3 great! I also run Steam on wine playing Counter-Strike, the performace isn't that great but still playable, can't play source games on wine though.

My main problem comes to cedega, I downloaded and compiled it from CVS, everything runs fine except that when Half-Life or Counter-Strike is loading the game or downloading the sounds it freezes and I need to kill the X with ctrl+alt+backspace. Is there a way to make a hotkey that kill all cedega processes on Gnome? Or even solve it? (Later I downloaded the version 6 rpm on eMule and got the same problems).

Is there a way to use alt+tab with full screen games? I'm really used to it, as I like to be on messenger or listening music while playing. Doesn't seem to work on Gnome.

Here is my Xorg file:

I'm sorry if any questions above were discussed before, I solved many problems using the search tool on google and forums but I'm really having these problems that I couldn't solve yet. Thank you
