    ive heard a little about needing new nvidia drivers to run games in linux. could anyone tell me more about that?

    exe files

    btw, it kinda repaired itself after awhile. since then, though, i caught sasser and reformatted with rh9.. and here i am again.
  3. got sasser on my Xp, so i reformatted linux. i'll be using it as my single home-based thing from here on out
  4. Apparently the disk a friend burned for me isnt bootable...

    Here's to crashing together! ::toast::

    exe files

    I have an idea. Could someone who's running xp look in the registry and tell me the entries for the following folders: HKEY_LOCAL MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Classes > .exe HKEY_LOCAL MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Classes > .exe > PersistantHandler

    exe files

    So I finally decided to switch back to my xp harddrive and battle the viruses. I cleaned them up thanks to www.trendmirco.com but they've left a little damage. Exe files wont run anymore without circumventing some things... Double-clicking an exe file, using a shortcut to it, or attempting to run it from the run dialogue gives an error "Windows cannot find '[file]'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search." However, I can get around this by right-clicking it, using "run as" and using any setting in there. I have no idea whats up with that, I'll probably end up reformatting it anyway, but I'd like to fix it first--it would save me the trouble of trying to burn a xp copy and install it under a seperate partition on my good (linux) hardrive. Any tips here would be appreciated.
  8. ive never seen concole text move that fast before in my life. i gazed at it for a few minutes, then went to make myself some eggs. thanks for the info about how to get wine setup for gaming!

    Transplant Ish

    My harddrive used to not be able to shut down from gui. I would have to go to lengths to get it to shut down peacefully, but when it went through the text-displaying process, it gave a couple kernel errors about inability to flush idde devices... or something. I solved it by auctually screwing the drive in place securely, and it hasn't acted up since. It might or might not help for you, but it's worth a check.

    My work

    No matter how cool your incredibly awesome server rooms are, I have a ("a" being one--the only one I own) computer that has to have its ethernet cord duct-taped to keep the plug securely touching the contacts in the adaptor. Your computers may be much bigger, much badder, and far more numerous, but I have one with character. I'll take a pic as soon as my likewise ghetto webcam finally decides to start working again.

    Whoa. I didn't know it was even possible for windows to run that long.
  12. There's something to be said for making tasks harder so you have more of a challenge, though. It's called masochism.
  13. ....I suck... (works now, btw)
  14. It could be that you're creating a new partition when you go to install Linux, and that it isn't large enough. Aside from that, anything else I can think of is exceedingly unlikely such as the quality of your cd burner.. (Edit): Good job taking a pitcture of your monitor with a camera, by the way.

    I am a testiment to the patience of the members of this site. The reward for most console errors off a fresh boot goes to MEEEEEE!
  16. I was about to post asking where wine put the "c drive" folder, but then I found this post! It looks like wine by default puts the c-drive folder at /home/yourname/.wine/c/ This could save you the time of doing the updatedb and listening to some rather scary sctartching noises as the command hits your hard drive.

    Kernel help

    And only in 16 minutes, too. Good job.
  18. i already ran the update though...
  19. im almost certain it refers to your ethernet card. if you're getting internet through cable, dsl, or a network, that's what youll be using.
  20. [root@nads thing]# apt-get install snyaptic Reading Package Lists... Done Building Dependency Tree... Done E: Couldn't find package snyaptic Same "couldnt find package" when working with mplayer, but it did get xine, so it's all good! ::general rejoicing:: Thanks, guys.
  21. hijinks: I've got that one installed, and it seems to begin to run fine, but whenever it goes to start the video, it stops with an error message about missing Xvideo support for my video card. anyweb: How does that work? I guessed that's a console line, but it came up as an unrecognised command. (using Redhat9)
  22. My number one grievance with having converted to linux is that I can't seem to get to my videos. Here's how far I've progressed so far: - downloaded divx and unpacked it to a folder - tried in vain to install divx with "./configure && make && make install" - downloaded various parts of mplayer, a promising-looking app with codecs that runs off rpms - installed all packs it calls for to be able to run: -- mplayer-vidix-nvidia-1.0pre3.20040125-0.1 -- mplayer-1.0pre3.20040125-0.1 -- mplayer-vidix-1.0pre3.20040125-0.1 -- mplayer-codecs-win32-1.1-1 -- mplayer-common-1.0pre3.20040125-0.1 -- mplayer-codecs-win32-mjpeg2k-1.0-1 Here are my obstacles: - divx doesnt have a config file to run, "make" returns a no target found, and "make install" only turns "install.sh" into "install" --both of which copy files to a few directories but not in a way i can call divx from a command line - mplayer returns one warning and one error when i call it from console: -- Detected cache-line size is 64 bytes CPUflags: MMX: 1 MMX2: 1 3DNow: 1 3DNow2: 1 SSE: 0 SSE2: 0 Compiled with Runtime CPU Detection - WARNING - this is not optimal! To get best performance, recompile MPlayer with --disable-runtime-cpudetection. -- vo: X11 running at 1024x768 with depth 24 and 32 bpp (":0.0" => local display) It seems there is no Xvideo support for your video card available. Run 'xvinfo' to verify its Xv support and read DOCS/HTML/en/devices.html#xv! See 'mplayer -vo help' for other (non-xv) video out drivers. Try -vo x11 Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device. It is a rather ardous and tedious task, but believe me when I say that I would not have posted it if I had means to solve it on my own...
  23. neither checkinstall or divx had a config file to run, and neither of them installed with those commands... I give up.
  24. THANK YOU ...now could someone explain how i use it? I tried the readme, but it only confused me since I didn't know/understand the process originally *sigh*
  25. I removed all cookies, set the an accept dialogue to come up, and re-logged. The information displayed for the cookie i got straight from this site had "expiration: session close". Guess ill have to go in and work on modding the cookie file. Where are they stored?
