I'm looking for an old(ish) Linux breakout clone. I believe it came installed by default with Redhat (??) and/or KDE. This would be around 10 years ago, give or take. [more inside]

I miss aptitude.

Okay, all you Red Hat / Fedora hackers - please, please explain to me this probably-very-simple aspect of the way the YUM package manager works. How do I just uninstall something without trashing everything that package touches? [more inside]

Why won't my Linux machine play nice?

Red Hat Linux won't correctly mount USB flash drive. Also cannot send email. (Although I can log into Gmail, just not send email, chat is also blocked.) FTP from Linux machine to other computers is ok, but we cannot FTP into the Linux machine from Mac or Windows. Are these problems related? Help? [more inside]

Cox Cable Webstar Modem with Redhat Linux or Alternatives?

My father-in-law (retired blue-collar aluminum worker, widowed, fixed-income, screwed out of health benefits when his former corporate employer filed bankruptcy) has an old Win 98 computer. Last year I installed major upgrades and switched him to Redhat Linux. All was well until Cox Cable swapped his old cable modem for a Webstar that is not Linux compatible. Can I get him back on Cox Cable with Redhat Linux without having to buy a new computer? Would a new cable modem work and if so, what brand?

Why won't my RH linux play my shoutcast music stream?

At work we use Red Hat linux and I've used Shoutcast to stream music. Today, I tried it on a different computer than normal and got an error reading something along the lines of "digital rights conflict with mpeg1/mpeg2/mpeg3 and Red Hat will now allow you to stream music." Thinking it would still stream (silly me), I clicked the "Do not show me this again" box and now I can't stream anything off any website and can't see that error message to give better details. I also use xmms. Anyone heard of this or know what's up? Also, my normal computer is in use so can't test that one out.
