Reply thobin A January 12th, 2017 You haven't tried Mint then. I'll have to wait for a new .iso dph948November 14th, 2007, 03:13 AMWhile I selected "worked flawlessly", I lied. After a while I discovered it wasn't crashing, but rather once the cd installer loaded it switched the video output from my primary video card to the secondary card. Hardware can struggle after a few years. http://tenten10.com/dual-boot/about-dual-boot.php

All have to do with how much lazy is the user. Sure, just turn off the key repeat in your desktop config. http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f10/dual-boot-quirky-sata-and-ide-possibly-to-blame-467154.html

So, my upgrade scheme was to create a 3rd boot with Gutsy Gibbon, keeping my rarely used WXP and my beloved Feisty Fawn. jdurandNovember 12th, 2007, 11:01 PMThis is a desktop server system, no battery. I can get the screen to rotate (even with my script), but I cannot get the rotated display to be truly rotated. Verizon, SBC and Bell South are running fiber-to-the-premises pilot products and are/planning to shortly roll out services to (pretty) limited areas with a year.

I ran "modprobe -l" for my 386 and generic kernels and noticed that I had ext3 for the 386 kernel but not for the generic kernel. All right, now you can use the comments below to yell at me.  I also highly recommend you share this post on Twitter, Facebook,  and Google+ with as many rude and Would like to upgrade to Gutsy again but only after the bugs have been fixed. If you really want speed, you can try a different distro that's not as resource intensive, or upgrade your computer." FFS!  I feel like an iPhone salesman apologizing for an iOS

Probably the most professional, well-organized, and best part of Linux, it's kernel, is heavily invested in by companies like Red Hat, Intel, and IBM.  And subsequently, most of the kernel is http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/248958-32-dual-boot-sata Well, for the most part everything works except a few things. 1.

Linux, on the other hand, is a mixture of code, some of it 20+ years old, from millions of developers of varying talent, working on whatever the hell they feel like. Upgrade failed initially; reinstalled and it worked! likewise my five years old Thinkpad still runs like new (with Windows 10 startup improvement over 7 it felt even faster, but even faster is Ubuntu. I am using an older ati radeon 7500 card...

Well there I've said my piece, now I got to get back to why my freaking nvidia dkms isn't loading after the latest update from manjaro - WEE! Also, I see the ‘installation is hard' argument as suggesting someone a hacky approach to something and then complaining about the difficulty. Thanks to all who make Ubuntu possible! I had installed the basic mail server before the upgrade but hadn't configured it yet.

This is not an insignificant hurdle for many people.  Good Linux users are good because they experiment and seek more information.  If you are unable, or unwilling, to learn and work check my blog For instance if Facebook stops maintaining messenger on windows phone 8.1, I'd loose my most used app. I re-installed Postfix which removed exim4. However, my wifi is still a hassle to set up, and this is rather irritating.

And 99% of the users want everything on the plate. I am using a Ultra brand laptop with a 2.8 GHz P4 and 1 GB of RAM, set up to dual-boot Ubuntu and Windows XP. This is why people will keep their hardware longer.A lot of hardware upgrades are now coming from when the hardware no longer supports the latest OS. this content Windows vs OS X vs Linux.

This is anecdotal evidence at best, there’s no way to back this up.// So … your 2nd point refutes your first. This leads to the odd situation where my oldish phone is more secure than my wife's much newer Xperia C3 running a stock 4.4.4 distribution...which reminds me I have some more Try window game with Microsoft gpu drivers and then… Basically this post shows how much lazy you are.

I later upgraded that machine to use an SSD, re-enabled the pagefile, and was back to smooth running.Is bloat the problem?

the 3D effects still don't work, and messed up my video experiences instead. To quote from another reply I made to someone else: Nearly every time Linux experiences a shift toward acknowledging and rectifying shortcomings, it is immensely well-received outside of [Linux purist] echo Don't want to waste energy endlessly tweaking my system and I also don't want to waste it trying to bring people to the Linux camp. I probably would.c627627 07-13-2011 05:51:23 PM (UTC)You mean PCI card?

To install a program, you use "apt-get" on a command line or something. I have 4 year old Nokia Lumia that still runs fine and with an average 1.5 days of battery life (it used to live 2 days, it's aging). Reply Lopo Lencastre de Almeida January 14th, 2017 On 8) people should take a ride by https://www.gamingonlinux.com/. have a peek at these guys It's too bad that a lot of people in linux communities do not feel that most of these are issues.

The system is stable, I have all the software I like reinstalled, Compiz works flawlessly, internet pops right up, etc. I set it off and it got stuck part way through the installation. I didn't worry too much about it since I have been wanting to try a fresh installation using manual partitioning (just for the learning experience), so I grabbed the live CD The installation went without a hitch, a couple of hours work got everything configured to my liking, a couple of hours on dial-up got Thunderbird and a few other apps, and

There is no floppy drive. but when it actually starts making them it fails on the .ext partition Leo_the_oneNovember 17th, 2007, 04:15 PMInstall - got many problems that i've not been able to solve The installation When I tried to upgrade from Feisty to Gutsy using the alternate CD the upgrade failed twice.

If technology companies (Apple in this case) made an effort to push technology along, then it'd raise the standard and user experiences would be richer due to allowing programmers to increase Then see if your battery life is even half what it was on the original operating system. Windows 3.51 to Windows NT 4 introduced a massive UI change with mammoth software incompatibilities requiring most companies to create separate versions of their software for each platform. This is the version that caused my problems.

I have several macs, one of which is an older mac mini with a traditional hard drive, which has become less usable as OS updates come in. Because, unlike any windows starting from xp, you cannot simply press the install button and let os to do everything by itself. I then installed the gui desktop onto the server version (obtained from another post), several hours later, I had a fully operation server with a gui front end. Long format may detect them but not always as the example above has shown.

I'm not going to get into a religious war, but here are a few good points: 1. The problem with his machine is repeated with the latest Mandriva and SUSE distros.
