Re: [clug] Converting mailboxes to IMAP

Following from what Mikal has said....
I have also used evolution to view my local /var/spool file as a mail
account and also setup up an IMAP mail account on the destination server
in the same client. Then it is just a case of drag and drop.

Re: [clug] Converting mailboxes to IMAP

One simple way and usually the best if you can do it is to use email 
clients.  In this case get PCPine, set it up to read mail, work out 
where it stores it's local mail and drop the mailbox into the place it 
stores local mail (if it's windows we're talking about here you may 
need to massage end of line from unix to pc(on unix: perl -pi.bak -e 
's/\n/\r\n/g' mailbox).  Give the mbox a special name - like old-mail 
or something, fire up PCPine and move all the mail to the new folders.

This method never has problems with formats because it is using the 
server to do the work.

It's better if you use the old server to read the email into pine 
first!!

[clug] Xinerama with a Radeon mobile chipset


Hey follks,

I have a quite nice ThinkPad. It has a Radeon Mobility video card in it, 
which has an external video oriface. I assume that I can drive this 
separately from the internal LCD monitor -- I haven't tried yet with 
Windows. An lspci says:

0000:01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon R250 
Lf [Radeon Mobility 9000 M9] (rev 02) (prog-if 00 [VGA])
         Subsystem: IBM: Unknown device 0531
         Flags: bus master, stepping, fast Back2Back, 66MHz, medium 
devsel, latency 66, IRQ 11
         Memory at e0000000 (32-bit, prefetchable)
         I/O ports at 3000 [size=256]
         Memory at c0100000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K]
         Capabilities: [58] AGP version 2.0
         Capabilities: [50] Power Management version 2

What I want is to be able to use the latop dual head with an external 
monitor, but also quickly and easily swap back to having the external 
monitor display the same thing as the internal monitor for presentations 
(at 1024x768). All the xinerama stuff I find on the web seems to be 
aimed at people with two video cards.

I'm an XFree gumby, although I can't imagine this is too hard to do. Has 
anyone got something close to a canned config, or hints that they would 
like to share?

Cheers,
(Continue reading)

Re: [clug] Xinerama with a Radeon mobile chipset

I've got the same card in my dell 600m. By default it seems to output a 
clone of the LCD. When I'm plugged into a projector I knock the res down 
to 1024x768 and it works happily enough. I don't know about the dual 
head  -- although now that you've mentioned it I might start playing...

Cheers,

Geoff

Re: [clug] Xinerama with a Radeon mobile chipset


Have a look at:

http://www.xfree.org/4.3.0/radeon.4.html

for  descriptions od the options you can use. Specifically have a play
with Option "CloneDisplay"

And also

http://www.xfree.org/4.3.0/radeon.4.html

which as options for monitor layout, etc... 

I will track down a working config and pass that over to you.

Have fun.

Linux on Thinkpads, was RE: [clug] Xinerama with a Radeon mobile chipset

Mikal,

As someone who's in the market for another laptop (my Dell P2-366 is a bit tired), could you (and anyone
else!) please provide some
feedback on the Thinkpad?  It's quite a minefield working out what lappies work with linux, especially from
companies who loudly
claim to support it.

Common issues I've seen are: apm/suspend, cd/dvd burning, external ports (vga etc.), general device
support (built in wifi)...
