i have been using Linux since minix days (first PC Digital Group Z-80 in 1977) first Slackware, then Mandrake, Mandriva until i could no longer use KDE 3.5 then switched to Ubuntu 9.04, now Pardus.
1. when i close Firefox it seems to exit properly, but when i try to start it up again, a box pops up and says it is already running and i must stop the process or reboot. i have to kill the process, and then Firefox will start. i notice that there are a couple of zombie kmserver processes that i cant seem to kill. i am using XMarks, adblock+ and StumbleUpon plugins in Firefox.
2. i have a DNS-323 NAS which works well in Dolphin. However,
i cannot select it as a repository for downloads in Firefox, nor can i save or load images from Gimp or other graphics programs. i think i need to mount it permanently in fstab using an smbfs filesystem. In the Dlink forums a user has suggested this for Ubuntu, but when i put my setup in fstab, Pardus freezes during the boot process, and a hard boot and repair with an outside resource [system rescue CD] is required. Other distros will exit the boot process and give you a command prompt so you can edit the fstab file.
is the suggested entry for fstab:
//192.168.0.199/Pessoais /media/lua cifs guest,rw,uid=1000,gid=1000,nounix,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0
and here is how i modified for my setup (smb://192.168.1.119/Volume_1/ <- working in dolphin)
//192.168.1.119/Volume_1 /home/cmallam/dlink cifs guest,rw,uid=1000,gid=1000,nounix,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0
i am trying to mount the drive in a non-existant directory called dlink mounted under my home directory. i am making the assumption that this subdirectory should not exist before fstab creates it and mounts the NAS there.
thanks for offering any insight into these two problems.
