To whom it may concern,
The article seems to be nice. I tried to work out the same. I configures PERL5LIB variable as
PERL5LIB="/home/galaxy/perl5/lib/perl/5.8.8:/home/galaxy/perl5/lib/perl5:/home/galaxy/perl5/lib/perl/5.8:/home/galaxy/perl5/lib/site_perl"and I put MyConfig.pm file in the /home/galaxy/.cpan/CPAN/ directory. I made editing in LIB and associated things in the MyConfig.pm file And I tried to install some modules that time the perl is looking to install in the default system wide directories not to the assigned locations by the user galaxy. I allocated a place in my home directory thats is
/home/galaxy/perl5 The Error message is *Warning: You do not have permissions to install into /usr/local/lib/perl/5.8.8 at /usr/share/perl/5.8/ExtUtils/Install.pm line 114. Cannot forceunlink /usr/local/lib/perl/5.8.8/auto/Bio/Graphics/Browser/CAlign/CAlign.so: Permission denied at /usr/share/perl/5.8/File/Find.pm line 886 make: [pure_site_install] Error 13*It will be great if you can suggest me a way to overcome this.

Hello The Answer Gang,
I have a question about the following article: http://linuxgazette.net/107/tomar.html
I did the following:
"Delete everything between the first and second colons, so that the line looks like:" root::12581:0:99999:7:::
"Save the file and exit your editor"
"Type 'reboot' to reboot your system"
However I can't complete this step:
"Now you can log into your system as root with no password. Make sure you change the password immediately."
When I try to login through putty, it asks me for login name, I enter root, then it asks me for password, I just hit enter, and it says the password is invalid.
How exactly do I login with no password?

Dear Víctor Luaña,
I just saw how you drew these labels of the angles in Fig. 1 on page http://linuxgazette.net/133/luana.html . Could you tell me what gnuplot code you use to do so??
Thanks very much in advance!

How does a socket(sock.net/sk_buff.net) is configured with underlying ethernet device structure. I mean at what time the net_device structre is exposed to the socket/sk_buff structure.
