  1. Kubuntu Hoary with Fluxbox. Nothing too fancy, but I like it.
  2. It's a long time since last I tried, but yes, that may just be the case, I used to dual boot before, and I often stored to a FAT32 partition... I'll try tonight and get back if it still fails. Being an old DOS-user i should have known this, thanks
  3. I've had problems downloading DVD ISO's before, stopping after 2GB. Anyone have an FTP-client they know will work with this DVD ISO?
  4. Hi Guys. I'm beginning to get a little bit frustrated about SUSE, don't get me wrong, it's a GREAT distro, but I don't really feel in control... So I'm looking ahead, used Mandrake and Fedora before, are considering going back, but have heard great things about Ubuntu. Gnome 2.8, Debian-based and non-commersial sounds tempting. Anyone got any Ubuntu-experiences they want to share? Espesially interested if you are running a Nvidia nForce chipset, even better, a Shuttle SFF box. The main apps I will use on this box is Bluefish, The GIMP, Firefox/Thunderbird, K3b (or similar), OpenOffice and DVD Styler, not development, just normal desktop-use. Does Ubuntu mount USB-devices like memory-pen and disks automaticly?
  5. I've played with SUSE 9.1 Personal at the office... don't go there, what you see is what you get. No more, not even GCC... SUSE 9.1 Professional on the other hand is nice. I'm running it at home now, and it's smooth, slick and stable. ...but there is really not very much to learn, YaST is very similar to URPMI/RPMDrake only less contrib-sources available. Other GUI configs are a bit different, but not too much. It's a matter of taste I think. I might jump back to Mandrake if 10.1 Official is as good as it looks.
  6. I've put up a "button" on my website, and have links to Firefox in many of my signatures on different forums. It's a great browser
  7. Sure, I could even put them out somewhere, but where do I look?
  8. I finally got my hands on a SUSE 9.1 Pro DVD. Installed it two days ago, and used the last two nights configuring it. SUSE feels good. So far I have a feeling that it's a slightly more thought-through distro than Mandrake.
  9. I've seen that wallpaper on different screenshots, any links to download? It's soo cool...
  10. TopDog


    http://urpmi.org/easyurpmi/index.php It's a site that helps you set up urpmi-sources. Urpmi-sources it FTP-sites that you use to install software.
  11. For IM Gaim or Kopete is the same for me... But I'm not getting IRC to work any good in Gaim, so I'm using Kopete for both IM and IRC...
  12. I've supported my favorite distro by buying a book from them, The Definitive Guide to Mandrake. An excelent book! I'm also considering buying the DVD Powerpack when 10.1 or 10.2 is released...
  13. I didn't know that, thanks for the great tip. As for you guys that asked about Opera. Opera was the first browser that used tabs. It was also the first browser with several buildt in search-engines that could be used in different ways. Opera has extremely many key shortcuts too. It has a pretty good buildt in mail-client (M2) and an IRC client. It's very customizable through skins and configurations, so even though it's a heavy browser, you can customize it to be just a lightweight as Firefox. And the best thing... it's Norwegian ...allthough I must admidt I use Firefox most of the time myself.
  14. Browsing - Firefox and Opera (in that order...) eMail - Thunderbird (just gotta love it, the spam filter is working perfectly!)
  15. google.com/linux is a search engine that only searches in sites related to linux. Brilliant to use if you google for software, problems, news etc... related to Linux! Google in the browser... Mozilla - download a Googlebar extension FireFox - Built in Googlebar standard Opera - just type "g" and the search words in the adressbar, or use the buildt in search box.
