One of those might possibly explain how that virus got on there.

I'd recommend a rebuild; you have a system here whose previous admin
has either been running untrusted (or compromised) binaries as root, or
not keeping the box secure.

kernel-image-2.4-k6 will always depend on the latest 2.4-series kernel
for the k6 in stable.  For now, regular upgrades should keep you
up-to-date with the kernel too (I say for now, as I don't know the
status of 2.4.x support in etch).  All you'll have to do is reboot after
the install.

Of course, if the name of the new kernel package has changed, an
'apt-get dist-upgrade' would be necessary.

Very old posted HP DESKJET 932C complaint

I have two HP Deskjet printers (722C & 940C) that have stopped 
printing yellow. It's not the cartridges and it'snot the computer. 
There are hundreds of postings about this problem on the Internet, 
and no solutions. HP itself insists it's the cartridges, even if the 
cartridges work just fine in other printers and even if you've tried 
half a dozen from different sources. If you discover how to fix the 
printer, I'd appreciate knowing how you did it!

Yes, you have.

Usually kernel is actually pretty easy to upgrade -- after everything
depends on it, rather then other way around. And moreover, this package was
after all created by Debian security team.

No, according to the above shown output of apt-cache you have just plain
Debian kernel.

It shouldn't -- Debian is able to upgrade kernel without problems. No idea,
what it doesn't work.

Apache2 Manhattan Virtual Classroom

I guess either no one can help me with this, or no one wants to. Fine and
dandy then, I will just go download another distro and start over there,
eventually I will find the needed help, if I have to frigging "pay" for it.

Subject: Apache2 Manhattan Virtual Classroom

Good Day all Debian folks!
I am at my wits end! YAAAAA! I have been trying for nearly a week to get
this Manhattan Virtual Classroom to work on my Debian 3.1 Server with
Apache2. According to the installation instructions for Manhattan I am to
place these lines listed below in the "appropriate place"
ScriptAlias /manhat-bin/      /home/manhat/manhat-x.x.x/bin/
      
        AllowOverride None
        Options +ExecCGI -Includes
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all

      ScriptAlias /manhat-sbin/     /home/manhat/manhat-x.x.x/sbin/
      

        AllowOverride None
        Options +ExecCGI -Includes
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all

Thanks! 

I don't have USB devices in fstab, but solved adding 
to  /etc/dbus-1/system.d/hal.conf

  <policy group="plugdev">
    <allow send_interface="org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume"/>
    <allow send_interface="org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume.Crypto"/>

Well, there are a few things that you should know.  First, Debian is a
community-based or community-supported (or whatever) distro.  For
example, see http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=community&db=*
(definition 2a, specifically).  Second, no one in this forum is paid to
support you.  Thirdly, please feel free to find yourself another distro
where the free support team will welcome your abusive tone with open
arms.  If you are in need of some quick turn around help, consider
hiring a Debian consultant.  There are plenty of such people/companies
listed on the Debian website (http://www.debian.org/consultants/) and
many also frequent this list (reading some of the archives will give a
good idea of who they are).

That said, I think your problem is twofold:

1. You do not mention that you have setup proper DNS entries or
/etc/hosts entries for these domain names you are using.  If you have
not, no matter how hard yo utry, you will not be able to view the pages.

2. You mention creating the virtual host configuration, but you don't
mention whether or not you restarted Apache.  I know this is simple, but
it is also easy to overlook.

Now, a few recommendations:

Difference between xfree86-common and x11-common


The difference between xfree86-common and x11-common packages is?
and why they conflict?

Is one x11 stuff version 3 (old video cards) and the other version 4?

Thanks
