[OT] - Macbooks.

My wife has recently got an iPhone and the thought of "jailbreaking" it 
to get it working on Linux is unwelcome.

She has been using Ubuntu for a while and doesn't want to go back to 
Windows. Hence Mac.

I've never used one and she will only use:

* iTunes
* Some photo program
* A web browser
* Some form of office suite

Any hints for a novice Mac shopper? Any recommended shops in Adelaide?

I apologise if this post is too off Linux for you.

Cheers

Piers

Sendmail + Clamav + MIMEdefang + Spamassassin + Procmail

Hi there!

CentOS 5

What I am trying to do (In order):

* Scan for viruses - clamav
* Remove undesired attachments - MIMEdefang
* Scan for SPAM [and mark the message] -- MIMEdefang
* Delete / move / remove from users eyes spam messages [X]

Email is successfully being marked with a spam score but I cannot delete on it at [X].

# Procmail

:0H
* ^X-Spam-Score: \*\*\*\*\*
/var/spool/mail/spam


# sendmail.

......
MAIL_FILTER(`clmilter',`S=local:/var/clamav/clmilter.socket, F=, T=S:4m;R:4m')dnl
define(`confINPUT_MAIL_FILTERS',`clmilter')
INPUT_MAIL_FILTER(`mimedefang', `S=unix:/var/spool/MIMEDefang/mimedefang.sock, F=T, T=S:1m;R:1m')

I have tried using:

But it doesn't work.

Any pointers appreciated.

Re: [MLUG] Postgres Authentication On Fedora 7 - AMD64

Using version 8.2:

Server configuration parameters virtual_host and tcpip_socket have been
replaced with a more general parameter listen_addresses. Also, the
server now listens on localhost by default, which eliminates the need
for the -i postmaster switch in many scenarios.

.....that answers that part!

Thanks

Postgres Authentication On Fedora 7 - AMD64

Hi there!

I am having trouble with PostgreSQL (which is very new to me).

I want to set it up so that every user from any host requires a password
to log in. I am trying to use an admin tool: phpPgAdmin

http://phppgadmin.sourceforge.net/index.php?page=faq

It states that I need to add the line:

"
....
To enable this, edit your postgresql.conf file and change this line:

	#tcpip_socket = false

to:

	tcpip_socket = true

and then restart PostgreSQL.
"

When I do this PostgreSQL will not restart. My Googling just points me
back to this page. Surly there is something I am missing?

Any pointers?

Thanks

Piers

Good ideas, if I had a spare high end PC, I'd be interested in building a
MythTV box. :)

Once I get myself back on the road, I'll be able to return to the meetings.
That should happen by the time of the next meeting.  As for things to talk
about, I haven't done anything particularly interesting, except more
esoteric stuff such as Samba - Active Directory integration, though my
recent conversion of a Mitsubishi R100 router to run DD-WRT might be of
interest. :)

MLUG Administrator Announcement to All Lists

Hi All

Please remember there is no meeting in December.

Some of you have noticed the MLUG site has been very slow lately.
It was due to a large number of Exim processes running.
I seem to have fixed the issue, but if you notice the site is slow
again, please let me know.

The November meeting was interesting with lots of discussion of many
topics.
One of the things we decided on was to create a blog here -
http://linux-mlug.blogspot.com for easy project co-ordination.
There are 2 projects proposed for next year. 
One is a Linux From Scratch (LFS) project, which would be great for
learning the nuts and bolts of Linux.
The other is a MythTV entertainment console project. This would give
those involved a fully functioning entertainment system at the end.
There will be more details on the blog soon.

For the last few months meeting attendances have been low, averaging
about 7.
I would like to get this number back up to the average 30-40 we used to
get at Fitzroy, so I am working on getting some interesting talks
organised for next year. I will post a schedule in January on the MLUG
site.
I think the old format of a 10 minute How-To and then a longer talk on
an interesting topic was good so I will try to set that up again.
If anyone would like to volunteer for a talk please let me know.

Regards

Cambo

POP3 from command line

Hi,
I'm looking for a tool that can connect to a POP3 server, download
email and save the email as files. It must be possible to configure
everything through a config file and/or on the command line. If the
tool parsed the emails and split them into header, body, and
attachments would be great but is not crucial.
Basically I look for something like fetchmail just that I want emails
to go to a directory as files and not run another SMTP server. I have
though about still using fetchmail and access its Mbox or maildir
(whatever it uses) but this is not really what I want.

Anybody knows a tool that roughly matches my description?

Cheers,
Christian

Problems with Yum FC6

I'm trying to do a yum update, but when I do yum download all the
goodies to install but then spits out this message

Transaction Check Error:   file /usr/lib/libxvidcore.so.4.1 from install

How do I find the packages that need to be removed to allow the update?

Wine Question

Hi All,

Just a quick one, is there a way for Wine to appear as Doze XP Service
Pack 2 instead of just plain old Doze XP?

Server Migration W2K to Linux

Hi All,

I'm looking for some advise in migrating a small SOHO network from a
Doze backend (Win 2K with AD) to a Linux one.

In brief my client has been running a 2K box since 1999 until now with
very little problems, only one was running out of HD space on user
drive.  They have a nice new server ready to go, but do not want to pay
for Doze 2K3, as all the server dose is domain auth and file and print
sharing.  Front end PCs are a mix of Linux (FC 4 & 5) and Doze XP,
(Needed for some apps)

So here is my list
Needs:-
1. Domain Controller (if I can migrate users from AD great if not only
small user base, never done this before)
2. File & Print sharing (my SaMBa knowledge is up to this)
3. No noticeable change for end users

Wish List:-
1. Exchange style shared address book & calenders
2. Centrally monitored Virus Control (Currently using Symantec Corporate
Edition)

Cheers,
Chris
