Invert Alpine listing?

Hello,
I wondered if it was possible to invert the way Alpine displays emails, so 
the newest would be placed at the top, not bottom. Is it possible?
Thanks!

Use $ when in the index for a one-time change. To change it all the time
go to the config ( M S C ), then use w to search for sort. One of those is
for mailboxen.

ciao,

where is D5 ?

Good time of the day.

Where I can download from official Debian site old stable (D5)?
I see D6 available, or up to D4 in archive, but no D5.

Thanks for Your time.

utility for drive disturbing

Good time of the day.

I want to install an utility for disturbing (writing a byte every
N seconds in order to stop it move its head to a landing zone) a mounted
HDD until it is unmounted because I have the one of those well known
green models from WD that lands its head every 8 seconds, AFAIK.
Because the disc works as external drive and it is impossible for now
to connect it directly to SATA interface, I want to bring about the
trick w/ the back grounded process (accomplishing it w/ watch and echo
a byte to the drive) until it is killed on un-mounting the drive (but
how I can find out what is the PID (being ran from a bash script)?

Before, I tried w/ another drive, another manufacturer that was
connected directly to SATA controller and hdparm did not work for it -
only the trick helped greatly.

As for the drives power management, as I understand it - there is poor
support for working/managing in linux yet, additional movements are
required as to make a DOS floppy or whatever - not directly running
from the distro...

Thanks for Your time.

my fault! I thought the "pppoe" had nothing to do with the dhclient so
I leave it out .

Here I can connect to the internet via PPPOE, so when I want to access
the intranet ,
I can cut the PPPOE connect and use dhclient to get an ip and netmask
(not at boot time)

you can find the Debian Lenny at every mirror site ,here is one
(http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/project/build/)
and you'd better choose a site near you
(http://www.debian.org/mirror/list), and in the project/build
directory .

Re: Squeeze: How to hide certain partitions in Nautilus

Nautilus displays partitions that are mounted, either manually or by an
automatic system (e.g., GNOME's volume manager, udisks, etc..).

I think Nautilus sidebar displays unmounted partitions as well, because I need to mount my Windows partitions ( by clicking on that partition and providing root pass word ) when I want to open them.
 
Run "mount" so we can see where are they mounted. Maybe they're under "/
media" :-?

When the 2 partitions I mentions are not mounted:

#mount
/dev/sda7 on / type ext4 (rw,errors=remount-ro)
tmpfs on /lib/init/rw type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,mode=0755)
proc on /proc type proc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
udev on /dev type tmpfs (rw,mode=0755)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,noexec,nosuid,gid=5,mode=620)
fusectl on /sys/fs/fuse/connections type fusectl (rw)
binfmt_misc on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)

When those 2 partitions are mounted ( see the last 2 lines: /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda2 ). They are mounted under /media
#mount
/dev/sda7 on / type ext4 (rw,errors=remount-ro)
tmpfs on /lib/init/rw type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,mode=0755)
proc on /proc type proc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
udev on /dev type tmpfs (rw,mode=0755)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,noexec,nosuid,gid=5,mode=620)
fusectl on /sys/fs/fuse/connections type fusectl (rw)
binfmt_misc on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
/dev/sda1 on /media/System Reserved type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=4096,default_permissions)
/dev/sda2 on /media/HP_TOOLS type vfat (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=udisks,uid=1000,gid=1000,shortname=mixed,dmask=0077,utf8=1,showexec,flush)

Thank you for the help,

Re: C compiler cannot create executables no good google answers

Since emacs-24 uses autoconf, you can look at the file "config.log" to
see more details about what went wrong running configure... look for the
actual error message from the compiler.

Upgrading (and then rebooting) that doesn't make any difference.

Indeed, AFAICT, gnome-terminal doesn't seem use libgnomekbd:

   $ ldd /usr/bin/gnome-terminal | grep kbd
   $

Windows can hibernate the box just fine. It is therefore possible.
