dave, yes it is expect for stdin/out.

there is for example elza for http/html

you also can use the selenium ide to automate firefox.

Got a link to elza then? I'm stuggling to find anything.

So I've "upgraded" to the latest version of Ubuntu 9.20 (karmic) and I am having nothing but troubles.  Flash doesn't work properly, random crashes of Firefox, random crashes of X, kernel panics....you name it.  Any one else having fun stuff like that happen?  It's not hardware.  I've tested that and WIndows still runs perfectly or as perfectly as Winows ever gets.

Well, I don't know about Ubuntu 9.20, never tried that. I was unaware that there were 20 months in 2009...

But, seriously, Ubuntu 9.10 has been good to me. I'm sorry to hear it's not working well for you. I know that Karmic came with a fresh new version of the Linux kernel with lots of new goodies that unfortunately broke some stuff. Firefox has always been a bit buggy and slow, that's just the nature of the beast. Flash too, though I've had no trouble installing it with the flashplugin-installer package. Chromium, though still a beta app really, has been faster and mostly less buggy than Firefox for me. Random X crashes are likely a video driver problem, which if it's a proprietary driver, Ubuntu's attitude is (rightly) "not our problem", simply because they can't do anything about it. Although, recently I've had some issues with Linux kernel-mode graphics and X both not working on an old Intel video card, with open source drivers too. Kernel panics are normally caused by buggy drivers too. My wifi card (several years ago, back in the days of Ubuntu Gutsy) used to cause kernel panics when attempting to connect to secured networks. Solution was to use ndiswrapper, until the Intrepid release when they finally got some working Linux-native drivers for my pos rtl8185 card.

Probably best course of action is to try one of the forums and address individual problems. Or, you could try the distro-hopping thing. See if Fedora, or Mandriva, or Debian, or Arch give you the same problems. They may, they may not. They may have other problems. Generally I don't distro hop, and instead just fix the problem on whatever distro I happen to be on (mostly Ubuntu). It's not like they're that different, after all. Just different choices of software and releases of software, and some generally minor differences in the configuration. The real differences in the distros is the custom configuration tools and the like, which actually Ubuntu has very few of compared to Fedora, Mandriva, or SUSE.

Anyway, hope this helps.

upgrading to 9.10 caused me problems too.
flash has the problem of being 32 bit and your os is probably 64 bit.
There's a shim that allows it to work, there's articles on how to fix it.

nAH....I have 64 bit machine, but I have never been able to get a 64 bit distro to work adequately.  So I stick to the the 32 bit distros.  I find it hard to believe it the video driver, as Ubuntu stays well behind the bleeding edge.  The repository only has version 185 of the Nvidia drivers..the current version from Nvidia is 190.  I'm am going to install the latest one manually and see if that helps at all.

like suicide driving a friend of mine suggested removing the airbag from cars and replacing it with a spike aimed at the driver.

Because of things like Flash etc. I am generally sticking with 32-bit Linux for desktop use. 64-bit is working great in the server universe, though.

Cool. I just installed OpenVZ on my server. It rocks. Soooo easy to install and configure containers.

I'm gonna put in separate containers for dev, test, and prod.

Subject: SMTP- Relay - Smarthost

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Just trying to get my own citadel server setup as a test. I come from a windows  world, so I am still learning. but I installed the citadel suite on ubuntu server 9.10 and tried to setup a smart host under Administration> Domain names and Internet mail configuration>Smarthosts. My isp(verizon) obviously blocks port 25, so I tried to send out the verizion smtp server on port 587. So my smarthost entry is username:password@outgoing.verizon.net:587 but when I try to send an outgoing email, it comes back with a Must issue a STARTTLS command first. I have also tried using gmail with the same issue and a hotmail account with invalid/host-not-in-DNS return address not allowed

Any thoughts?

thanks,

Jeffrey Showalter

you're in the wrong room.

citadel doesn't support TLS for relaying.

maybe stunnel and port 465 can help you out?

So, it's been around 2 years since I looked at calendaring on linux.. now here I am once again, with an exchange server and a linux desktop. I would like to use Lightning or Sunbird, but they still say no Exchange support.
Is there any way around this that has come up in the last few years? I am open to any solution (including web based if necessary) as long as it runs on linux and can work with the Exchange server.

It's been a while since I've used it, but doesn't Exchange's Outlook Web Access (OWA) let you get to the calendar? Or is it e-mail only?

For whatever reason, they don't have the exchange web interface here, they are using squirrelmail via IMAP, even though it is an exchange server.

Evolution can supposedly connect to the groupware features of Exchange.
