  1. hey dudes!


    I got this old laptop from a friend of mine.

    it;s a p3 500mhz with only 86mb's of ram.

    Would it be possible to run a linux with graphical interface on it?

    Reason I am asking is cause I actually don't want to put windows 98 on that machine....even though it would let me run some programs and old games which xp and up won't run....

  2. I want to stream stuff from that pc to the internet from the soundcard input.


    It will be like this:


    HAM RADIO RECEIVER ==> PC_Line-In ==> Linux with streaming software ==> internet


    Internet==> PC (for example @ work) ==> Speakers so I can listen to my ham radio receiver at work.

  3. I have an old pentium 2 mobo and stuff just sitting in a box doing nothing so I want to try something with this?

    I was wondering if it was possible to put a NIC into it, a soundcard and some software into it to make it an audio streaming server.

    What I mainly wanna do is connect it to the speaker out of my HAM-Radio box to make it stream my qso's and qso's that I receive on it.


    I was gonna try this, but if anyone can help me out a little with this, please do.

  4. Hey dudes!

    Is broadcom support native nowadays?

    I want to install linux again, but I want to know if broadcom is supported natively.


    Also my question is, is the Intel 915GM supported properly yet?

    So far I have tried several distro's but none of em support lower resolutions, which I need to play some windows games. (Vice City and The Sims mostly)

  5. Hey peepz

    I have an old celeron 433 with a Geforce 2 32 mb videocard with tv-out.

    I was wondering, since the regioncode didn't have to be changed..can I make that stuff a dvd-player?

    I mean one I can connect to a tv set.


    it would be nice.


    put a NIC in it for internet video and such.

    A region free dvd player for watching all-region dvd's.


    Would kaffeine run on redhat 7 on a cellie 433.

    it only has 64mb ram



    I have a barebone PSU so I can fit it in a small (custom build) case , which is cool.

  6. well, they spent a lot of time on the paint and trim but what is under the hood?


    I just looked it up for you.


    About PCLinuxOS

    PCLinuxOS is an English only live CD initially based on Mandrake Linux that runs entirely from a bootable CD. Data on the CD is uncompressed on the fly, allowing up to 2GB of programs on one CD including a complete X server, KDE desktop, OpenOffice.org and many more applications all ready to use. In addition to the live CD, you can also install PCLinuxOS to your hard drive with an easy-to-use livecd-installer. Additional applications can be added or removed from your hard drive using a friendly apt-get front end via Synaptic.

  7. Hey peepz!

    Why am I having a hard time on getting wireless to work, when I am trying out different distro's?

    The only distro I got it to work on so far is FC6.


    I tried Ubuntu...no luck.

    Tried Mepis.....same story

    Tried some live distros....(KANOTIX & KNOPPIX) NADA!!!


    What am I doing wrong here?

  8. Hey peepz!


    I just got this old Celeron 433Mhzmachine which has 64 mb of ram.

    I was wondering if it would be possible to get a Linux on there with a desktop enviroment (GNOME, XFCE, KDE, whatever!)

    I also want to to stream image+sound from a TV-Card over LAN.

    I heard I can use VLC Media player for that.


    What Linux Distro should I use on this old machine, which will run quite smooth and stable?

  9. thanx dude! now I can play around with it :D


    Well....got it working, now it can't find the damned plugins!




    Well I found an RPM, but it has the same problem.....NO PLUGINS and I can't configure it with the plugins that are there....it simply says there are none.

  10. Hey dudes!


    I am using FC6 for like a month or so and still I find it hard to install stuff when they come in ".tar.bz2" or such formats.

    Take my latest find for an example, "mupen64-0.5.tar.bz2".

    It's allready binaries so I don't have to compile it (like I have to do with a source.....which I really don't understand :P)


    In mepis this should be easy....you just unpack and click the Mupen64 file.

    But since I run FC6, I have to install it.....and that's where I get stuck.

    I still don't know howto do that.


    Could you guys help me out here?

    I wanna play some N64 (Zelda, Perfect Dark, Mario64, Mario Kart 64, Wave Race) on my laptop while I'm sitting in the train.

  11. Hey fellow linux users!


    Since monday I installed Xubuntu in a DUALBOOT configuration at work.

    Now I need Xubuntu to get NTFS support, and it would be great if it automounted at boot-up.

    Could you guys help me out here?

    Gimme a step by step and such.

  12. Hey fellow linux users!!

    Since a week I have my laptop fully running Fedora Core 6.

    Fedora Core 6 comes with the "Sound Juice CD-Ripper" which I couldn't get to rip to MP3.

    Since I have a PSP and I would love to rip my cd's to MP3....this is how I do it now:


    Tools I use are:


    - K3b (yeah the burning software)

    you can get it by going into SU mode in the terminal and typing:

    yum -y install k3b

    yum -y search k3b mp3


    After that's done, download and install this:



    After that is installed FEDORA CORE 6 will tell your there is 1 new update. install that, open up K3b.

    Open the "Settings => Configure K3b" window and goto the CDDB settings.

    Change it (if it isn't like that allready) to access the external cddb (for titles and such)


    After that open a new AUDIO-CD project and in the upper-left navigator click your cd-rom/dvd-rom station where your Audio-cd is inserted in.

    After that, select the tracks you wanna rip, goto "Projects => Convert Audiofiles"

    Change the "WAVE" into "MP3 (lame)", choose a destination folder and your all set!!


    Press the start button and let it run.
