Re: xscreensaver, 'new login' and DPI set to 96x96

I would not handle this with gdm, because it is not an specific thing for gdm to switch DPI, it is more an X point.

Re: live-CD no video no audio

Flash? What about testing a real sound/video file with a player? Flash is ever causing problems with GNU/Linux. Flash 10 works beautifully on my Debian Squeeze but that's not the point. What I want to know is, how do I make the video and audio work on the live CD which I downloaded from this site? ...

For a few reasons I'm not able to install many distros on it, but for whatever reason the *buntu alte...

Re: network manager

nano /etc/conf.d/net :D Works best and fastest and I get the results I expect. Every manager seems to have some differences with my box and is preventing me from connecting.
