On of them was the onboard Modem. It took me more that 4 hours to figure what was going wrong with the slmodem. I tried a lot of versions up to 2.9.10. First of all if you are using kernel […]

Yes sendmail DOESN’T support maildir format. But if you use procmail here is the solution: Create a Maildir directory on your home folder using maildirmake. If you don’t have it you can try the following: mkdir $HOME/Maildir mkdir $HOME/Maildir/cur mkdir $HOME/Maildir/new mkdir $HOME/Maildir/tmp And create a .procmailrc using only that rule: :0 /home/yourhomedirectory/Maildir/ If procmail […]
My DNS server (bind 9) was writing on the syslog quite often the common error message: [b]lame server resolving[/b].

Solution: You can turn […]

I am playing with gentoo on my laptop for about 3 months. Today i decided to do an emerge system. It is really easy to update it: emerge –sync followed by a emerge system (you can also use emerge –pretend system first in order to see what it will be updated) and finally a etc-update. […]

My hotmail account upgraded from 2 MB to 25MB. To be honest a friend sent me a trick in order to do it. It appears that hotmail upgrades only the accounts that have, as a Country United States. Mine was Greece.
