Did a fresh install of RH 6.1 onto my machine, and am mightily
1. How do you stop netscape from automatically displaying that RH
help page? I can't find anything in netscape's settings that would
cause it, eg home page setting, yet even if i start it from the
commandline, it still comes up with that page.
2. Why in the name of god can't RH keep the system group and password
accounts consistent between releases????
i have a RH6 machine which mounts some stuff from the 6.1 machine,
and most of the bloody gid's are different!! Even some of the uid's
like that for xfs are different!!! I'm going to have spend ages
merging the different gid's and uid's and checking/changing existing
Do they choose the numbers at random? and don't they even conceive
that this might cause problems with nfs+nis??
3. Documentation: Why have redhat decided to stop installing man
pages? And why is the /usr/doc stuff so inadequate?
Loads of rpm packages don't install man pages anymore, even though
the original source has them, eg xntpd!! Other packages are woefully
badly documented, eg gdm2, esd ... etc. Where is the documentation on
how to configure gdm? I know it exists, cause i remember reading it
when i installed gnome by hand ages ago!!!
