dbus-x11 too

The question is only, which package must pull in dbus-x11?

I assume blueman, because bluez can be also used without blueman.

Recommends are not Depends and blueman depends on dbus-x11

Such thing happen if someone is sitting the whole day in front of a

However, I can not find in /proc or /sys the Kernel commandline.
In the older kernels the file was named "comandline" but it is
not more there.

I was séarching for it, because I have to boot from LILO prompt in a
non-default runlevel by using


but it does not boot into runlevel 3.  It is always the default 2.

I do not know, where the error is.

In case of problems with runlevel 2 I want to boot directly into
another one and also I have a runlevel which launch a very special
environment, which can not be done trough telinit and I do not want
to do this as root.

I have still my CDs from Hamm, and on a DVD I have Buzz Rex and Bo.
Long time ago!

True, but currently anything is working fine.
Hmmm, what is the lifetime of 3Com 100base-TX Network adapters?

Long time ago, they where the best on the market and ALL of my
computers (which do not have Ethernet on board) have them...

At least since 18 years
