More eeepc fun IdentD
We're using IdentD as part of our filtering/security setup on laptops and workstations...just turned it on to find the minibooks' internet is now screwed...downloaded a linux package for identd, but Xandros doesn't seem to have the Make command that the install needs..
anyone got any ideas how to get round this...i mean anything...but maybe not involving a hammer or a blow torch...
not having make is a symptom of not having a compiler installed. You probably need to install gcc. How you go about doing that on an eeepc I'm not sure.
Can you not find a .deb for IdentD?
If you're missing Make you'll probably find you're missing a bunch of other bits, too - on Ubuntu these are combined in the package "build-essential". A Google search for something like "Xandros build essential" should hopefully turn up some useful information.

seems to have done stuff but not sure what.
how to i install the .deb file?
added debian sources to sources.list
installed build essential
then followed this
only problem is it doesn't run the identd on startup. you need to issue the command
$ /usr/sbin/identd -d
as sudo bash before it will work
any ideas on how to automate this?
not sure if its the same but i use
rc-update add identd default
to add identd to the default runlevel so it starts automatically
mmm don't seem to have rc-update...where could i get it from?
its probably not a valid command for that distro.. Ill have a look see if i can find the equivelant
it could be the update-rc.d you need to edit
sorry i dont' follow
can you explain what i need to put where .... (be nice now!!)
