Networking :: How To Use DNS Server To Reduce Netbios Broadcast And Speed Up Browsing?

May 11, 2011

I am on a 172.16.x.x network with about 60 Windows XP home and Vista home clients in a peer-to-peer workgroup that uses DHCP to assign addresses. About half the traffic on my LAN is netbios broadcast. I do not want to do a WINS server because I do not want to have to manually change the registry on every machine. This is only for local name resolution and I do not have any web servers or e-mail servers. I do not have access to a Windows server to use as a DNS server. I am on Debian and using BIND but am open to other suggestions.

General :: Browsing Pictures On A Mac?

Oct 12, 2010

After many years using linux, I decided to buy a mac. Now my main problem is: how do I synchronize pictures within my linux machines and the mac?

I have been using digikam in linux, and I like it because I can just browse the pictures directly from my directories (and it is easy for me to keep directories synchronized within mac and linux).

I have been testing iphoto and aperture, which are quite nice but if use them, my understanding is that I have to import all the pictures into these softwares, and this doesn't seem to be the ideal solution for me. I tried picasa, but I don't find it as good as iphoto and aperture. On the other hand it allows me to browse directories, without having two copies of the same pictures.

General :: Browsing Files On Device Through Kde Bluetooth

Jun 1, 2010

I use fedora12-Gnome as my major desktop OS. Every basic need was fulfilled , until I tried Fedora12 KDE. The problem is with Bluetooth connectivity to my cell phone device.It connects to the cell phone and set trusted but I can't seem to see any option of "Browse files on Device".Does that mean in KDE I actually can not browse my Bluetooth connected devices?The same thing happened with Mandriva2010-Kde and Fedora13 Kde , I mean I guess It's related to KBluetooth app.

General :: Browsing With Linux Much Slower Than Windows

Jan 1, 2011

I have a big archive with about 10000 documents in a usb stick. What I have noticed is that browsing of that archive with gnome is much slower with ubuntu than winXP ( dual boot , same PC ) where it is almost instant.I have disabled assistive technologies and installed Thunar file browser. It improved things but again the lag is important. Linux is in general much faster than windows, so I wonder why is it happening ?

General :: Apache Threads Being Kept Around After Browsing On A Local Development Machine

Sep 21, 2010

So I have apache running on my local computer. When I open up local development sites in tabs in my browser, apache threads are started. That's as it should be. However, when I close the tabs, close the browsers, and then run system monitor/system task manager, I get a long list of apache threads that are sleeping, waiting around for god knows what. How do I get these apache threads to stop hanging around?

General :: Enabled Directory Browsing And Could Watch Files In The Browser On PS3?

Sep 22, 2010

Not sure if this was the right place to post this. Recently installed Ubuntu Netbook remix on my netbook. On Windows I used IIS and pointed my website to a directory full of video files all in .avi containers, enabled directory browsing and could watch files in the browser on my PS3.

I'm wondering how I go about doing this in Apache? Since there isn't any GUI to do it for me like in IIS :P.

Fedora :: Browsing Bluetooth On KDE

Nov 5, 2010

Dolphin does not currently browse bluetooth devices, and they are not automatically mounted or seen as potentially mountable. [As an interesting aside, I ran into a snag pairing my phone: I can initiate pairing for the first time, with pin and all, from the phone, but I cannot initiate such pairing from the computer. This behavior is identical under KDE and Gnome. Does anyone have a clue why? Both devices were bluetooth visible, so that isn't the problem.]

However, it is still possible to browse bluetooth devices, provided they have been paired, by executing obexfs -b <bluetooth address> <user-writeable mount point>. Unmounting is done through fusermount -u <mountpoint>. Now it seems to me to be very easy to extend Dolphin's functionality (and the device detecting/mounting application) to include the above behavior automatically. Case in point, Nautilus has no problem doing all that.

So, I'd like to file a bug report and prod the appropriate instances, but given that google searches on this issue bring up mostly old pages, I wonder whether anyone know whether (a) this is a KDEBluetooth issue, (b) a Dolphin issue, (c) a Fedora packaging issue, (d) other (please specify).

Ubuntu :: Very Slow Web Browsing

May 4, 2010

This something I have only experienced since the final install.I'm using a fresh firefox profile with NO extensions currently. The only change I have made is to disable ipv6 to see if it helped with the following problem. Browsing web pages is stupidly slow and much slower than I am used to.Downloading in firefox is normal and running at speeds I would expect.For example, I have downloaded several distro .iso's over the past two days and they have been consistently downloading at 1MB/s +This is only affecting browsing web pages and it's affecting all of them, even the basic google search page takes at least twice as long as normal.

Debian :: Too Many Nautilus Windows When Browsing?

Is there any way to configure nautilus to open new folders in the same window? Now, when I browse to a folder in my ~/ and finally reach the folder I was looking for. I have several or so nautilus windows open. Just to navigate to a specific folder in my home directory (~/). I think all those windows are a little excessive.

OpenSUSE :: Particular Browsing Unknown Source?

Mar 18, 2010

I have a problem and I havent got a clue what the cause is. Since last week, I have noticed that my TWO computers (running opensuse 11.1) have problems dealing with some websites:

1) My bank virtual office: [URL]...No matter which user/pass i put, i get a "a problem has ocurred" screen. It happens under firefox and opera. Konqueror in KDE3/4 does not even show the login box!? Try 12345678 for user and 1234 for password if you want.

2) Rumbo travel: I can search flights but if I click to start the booking process it says "YOUR BROWSER has detected an error" and goes back to front page. Same thing happens with firefox and opera, NOT with Konqueror. Both messages are generated by the remote servers (not by my browsers).

Some facts to take into account:

1) It has been happening for about one week or two
2) This problems happen exactly the same way on two computers running opensuse 11.1. The only big difference among them is the kernel (2.6.33 and 2.6.27 for the other)
3) Problems affect Opera and Firefox. Konqueror acts weird on the Bank site.
4) Problems DO NOT exist in other computers running windows or linux. Its not a problem on the websites. And they used to work well.

5) Problems persist in my computers, when connecting through different networks (university, home...), by wifi or ethernet. Other boxes do not suffer them in the same environments.

6) Yes, i have cleaned up cookies, browsers cach etc...
7) I have downgraded firefox and opera, and problems persist still.
8) I have turned off SuSEfirewall and with no luck.
9) There are no relevant messages in any logs or browser console (just some warnings about "rejected declarations" etc. but no difference of what i have seen on other boxes that actually work)

The only thing i can think that is common layer on both sites is SSL encrypted connection and javascript, and im not sure Opera and Firefox share any of that, and the problem is still there!.

Ubuntu :: Random Crashes While Web Browsing / Why Is So?

May 6, 2010

(Update 5/19: I can now reproduce the bug either booted normally or from the live CD)

I've got the strangest bug and no idea what is causing it. While web browsing, sometimes the OS will completely crash. The crash always goes the same way:

First, it shows some text on the screen too fast for me to read, but it looks like red ASCII bullet points followed by white text, both over a black background.


After doing this for about half a second, it enters some kind of loop. The top half of the screen alternates between black/white vertical bars and solid black, while the bottom half of the screen remains solid black.

The only way I've been able to get out of this is by pressing the power button, and doing so shows me the *buntu logo (currently using Xubuntu) and then turns itself off.

Here's why I can't figure out what's wrong:The crash happens in GNOME, KDE, and XFCE. I have since uninstalled KDE because I was just checking to see if it still crashed.
Both Firefox and Google Chrome cause the crash.
No other programs seem to crash this way; just the web browsers. I've played games and listened to music for hours with no problems.
Opening the same pages doesn't reproduce the crash. It happens randomly every hour or so.
Even simple pages (like tabs of JPEGs with no HTML) cause the crash.
This is a recent install from an Ubuntu 10.04 CD.
I was previously using Kubuntu 8.04 and had no issues.
