    Im back.....

    welcome back
  2. here are the mp3 files I created in the early 90's to test the above
  3. you can read/write windows drives as long as they are not encrypted, linux won't install on C:\ it uses it's own file system, so I assume you mean that the C:\ drive is where you intend to install linux, if so, it will take over that entire drive with it's own filesystem
  4. did you figure it out ?
  5. i'm also interested in bash scripting as i've started working with Mac's, yes I know they are not linux but there are similarities i'm sure
  6. Well, it's true, I've neglected this site for years, for various reasons including work, my Microsoft MVP commitments, and of course the sister site windows-noob.com. You could say I've practically ignored linux-noob.com and done as little as possible to help it survive other than the bare minimum which is to keep the domain name alive and make sure the data in the site itself was protected, but the time has come to re-resurrect the site, breath new life and start afresh. So, today I've updated the site license, and will with the help of the web server admin plan to upgrade the site to

    Fedora 28 release

    thanks for posting this Oroshi !
  9. Microsoft have just made PowerShell (a programming language developed by Jeffrey Snover and available in Windows 7, 8, 10 and other Windows operating systems) open source, and available to Linux and MacOS. Wow ! I use PowerShell at work to do many things, fixing problems and checking for particular settings, it's a really great programming language and anyone with a Windows computer (or now Linux or MacOS) can try it out. It will be made available on GiThub (production version shipped in nano-server), one codebase that runs on Windows and Linux with all the benefits of open so
  10. Gabe Aul announced that there's a new insider preview available on the fast ring, and here’s what’s new in Build 14316 Run native Bash on Ubuntu on Windows: In this build, you can natively run Bash in Windows as announced last week at Build 2016. To do this, you first need to turn on Developer Mode via Settings > Update & security > For developers. Then search for “Windows Features” and choose “Turn Windows features on or off” and enable Windows Subsystem for Linux (Beta). To get Bash installed, open Command Prompt and type “bash”. For more details, see this blog post. t
  11. Microsoft has just released System Center 2016 Technical Preview 2 and amongst the features it includes are native SSH support, yup that's right you can SSH in to your SCCM 2016 box ! I'll test it shortly and report back, but this really is cool, cool to see Microsoft embracing other operating systems 'methods' of accessing systems and management, it would be like Linux starting to offer PowerShell in the kernel ! via > http://blogs.technet.com/b/systemcenter/archive/2015/05/06/now-available-system-center-2016-technical-preview-2.aspx
  12. i got irritated with this computer (it hard locked when lid closed) so i just installed windows 7 on it, i'll install fedora on another laptop instead.
  13. tried it again and again it crashes, although the time and other widgits in gnome work just fine, it's just when i click on activities maybe i'll install it on another laptop and see how it goes as i do want to see the new gnome
  14. well when gnome crashes it doesnt crash to a prompt, it bombs me backinto the desktop... i'll take another look at it tonite
  15. sorry not following you, what do you mean a virtual console ?
  16. ok I just checked and i dont have that file or directory structure as this is the i386 release of Fedora 20 (not x64)
  17. thanks Feedmebits i'll try it tonite and come back to you
  18. well i got it installed but gnome crashes as soon as I click on activities, I did a quick search and didn't find any solution, any ideas ? in the meantime i've installed KDE via yum install @kde-desktop and that does work when i switch to it, however i prefer Gnome
  19. I downloaded Fedora 20 from here, created the USB media using the liveusb creator and then started the install, it wouldn't verify my installation source (usb) and i couldn't install. I thought my HASH/md5sum was bad so i checked it. The sha 256 matched. Next I tried to input an alternative location, I chose the following as I was installing on older hardware (32bit only), http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/development/20/i386/os/ this allowed the installation to continue, so I'm posting this here incase it helps others cheers anyweb

    Hello there

    welcome to the forums !
  21. this webserver is running on Centos so I can highly recommend Centos, very very stable and easy to manage especially if you are familiar with RedHat
  22. lucky you Dave, have a great time and welcome back feedmebits !
  23. i'm not mad with fedora, just with gnome for forcing us to have to use the new interface and not allow a decent fallback, i have used it for a year or so now and honestly i prefer the original, why on earth do we need a big title bar on the top of every window when display space is limited on my little notebook
