    Dear, All PCLinux Friends

    I'm Nguyen from Vietnam.I'm a beginer for Linux. I have some
    problem, I hope someone can help me.

    1. How to change "Computer Name", "Workgroup" and
    "NetBIOS" like we do on Windows?

    I don't know why my
    Username in console is [[email protected] ~]$ and root is [[email protected] nguyenntt]# CONGHN is the computer
    name of my staff.

    Username: nguyenntt
    I want to edit my host name to

    2. I try to install XVNKB ( Vietnamese Keyboard ), but
    its appear error below:

    > [[email protected] ~]$ su
    [[email protected] nguyenntt]# cd /home/nguyenntt
    [[email protected] nguyenntt]# rpm -ivh
    error: cannot get shared lock on /var/lib/rpm/Packages
    error: cannot open Packages index using db3 -
    Operation not permitted (1)
    error: cannot open Packages database in /var/lib/rpm
    [[email protected] nguyenntt]#

    3. On Ubutu, we can install or remove soft by command
    line "sudo apt-get install axel". Its will automatic
    install. But I dont know how to do this on PClinuxOS ?

    I hope I don't take more time of you. Please help me.
    And after, I'm sorry for my English skill.

    I'm not completely sure how to do this on PCLinuxOS, but we can try to figure it out. Is there a file /etc/hostname; if so, what's in it? What's the output of
    ls -l /etc/init.d
    ls -l /etc/sysconfig

    It seems there's another rpm process running. Have you tried to reboot the system?

    It should work the same way because PCLinuxOS uses apt as well.
