  1. Well, hello again, linux-noobs. It's been a while. I figured I'd come back to the best linux help site for, well, some help! I just installed Core 5 (a few times, actually) over FTP because I don't have any blank CDs left. It all works very well, just not very fast. Fast forward to the real problem, whenever I shut down after logging in the first time, upon reboot it takes about 3-4 minutes to start sendmail and about a minute to start sm-client. WTF?? That, I can live with. The really bad part is, after it boots, it freezes when X is supposed to start. So, I switched to single
  2. What would you suggest for me then? Having used both Ubuntu and Fedora, I'd have to reccomend Fedora for your first time. Don't get Fedora Core 5 yet, though. It was just released 5 days ago, and it's still pretty buggy. I'd say go with 4 until Core 5 gets some more updates and etc. Also, there is a Linux version of LimeWire, since it's java-based. Also, welcome, from a poster who was on hiatus but is having problems with Core 5 and will post that elsewhere!

    I wouldn't exactly call myself a complete linux noob (huh,,,irony!) but I use Ubuntu since it's fast, clean, and I don't have to worry about anything going wrong. I've got a box for that...and I've got my work box, which needs to, well, work.
  5. I tried Gentoo for a little bit, and it just didn't feel right. I now use Ubuntu, since my machine is nothing more than web/email/IM.
  6. Ubuntu, without a doubt. Well, unless it's my shoutcast server, which will be running Gentoo in a weekish or so.

  13. Mmk, here's what worked for me in FC2 (Tettnang) to get XMMS and Gaim Sounds to play nice. Firstly, I use GNOME, so (currently) that's all the help I can provide for all. Sorry! Ok, first enable your sound server by going to Main Menu>Preferences>Sound. Check "Enable Sound Server Startup" and "Sounds for Events" Now, in Gaim, press Ctrl+P for preferences and click "Sound" on the side. Make the sound method "ESD." Click "Close." Next, open XMMS. Open the Preferences. In "Output Plugin" select "Esound Output." Click "Apply." You should be good to
