    Hates Microsoft
  1. Day 2 Spyware Spyware and more Spyware. My computer was really slow so I decited to run spybot and ms defender. This is what I got. Also keep in mind I havn't used the web much on this pc.
  2. I never really used vista or windows for that matter. I decided to bite the bullet and give vista a try for 30 days. Day 1 I have a friend who gave me Vista Ultimate DVD. He said this will give you 30 days until you have to activate it. Perfect I don't even have to buy windows to try it out. I took the dvd and put it in my test computer and sat down and got ready for 30 days of vista. Installation seemed pretty easy if you know how to click a t.v. remote then you can install vista. I had some free space on my hard drive so I installed vista on that. I had Fedora 8 on this computer and wh
  3. This will walk you though how to install mp3 support to dvd playback and everything in between. First thing is to install the Freshrpms and Livna Reops Freshrpms 32 Bit rpm -ihv http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/7/i386/RPMS.freshrpms/freshrpms-release-1.1-1.fc.noarch.rpm Freshrpms 64 Bit rpm -ihv http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/7/x86_64/RPMS.freshrpms/freshrpms-release-1.1-1.fc.noarch.rpm Livna 32 bit version: rpm -ihv http://livna-dl.reloumirrors.net/fedora/7/x86_64/livna-release-7-2.noarch.rpm Livna 64 bit version: rpm -ihv http://rpm.livna.or
  4. If you just installed fedora 7 and have issues using older firmware drivers. You need newer version firmware for your wi-fi card to work in native mode. Here is what you need to do to get the latest firmware and how to make it work. be sure you are root to install the packages and run the commands below 1. Install bcm4300-fwcutter yum install bcm43xx-fwcutter 2.Download the 4.x broadcom firmware wget http://downloads.openwrt.org/sources/broadcom-wl- 3. extract the package tar xjvf broadcom-wl- 4. run the bcm-43xx firmware cut
  5. this is what sucks about ati. They have suck ass support for linux. Sorry to say that your chances of getting that tv tuner to work is almost next to none. try to get a tv card that is linux compatible unless ati makes a tv tuner driver your not going to get it to work.

    Well windows can't reconize and respect other oses like others can. now that is out of the way this is what you have to do. Get a dos disk that has fdisk. if you don't have a dos disk laying around you can get one at http://www.freedos.org/ . Run fdisk /mbr then run fdisk agan and delete all non-dos partitions then create a large fat32 one. then you should be able to Install windows. Whats happening is that windows can't understand the grub bootloader and the ext3 partitions. once you remove them you can install windows xp again.
  7. I hate vista. It seems like this is the biggest pofs miscosoft has ever come out with. Loaded with tons of useless resource hogging eyecandy that will bog down your system. Yea they give you options that will help with the resouce hogging but like any stupid ass windows user they want it all or nothing. so now the have a nice dual core cpu that runs like a 386. Why do you want this? you see people say oh vista is fine. Thats fu**ing bs I seen vista run on a dual core system with the lattest video card and still its fu***g slow. Pro vista users are living in a dream world. all vista is offering

    I just think its stupid to have pdf format. and evern a differnt site all together. Like I said who cares if they copy your stuff and take credit for it? i don't, as long as someone learns from it somehow. I got a real job so I don't need to be bothered to think if someone stole my how to, and if you really care about it that much then your more in to making your self look good then helping in the linux comunity.

    Why are you so concerned about if people copy a how to and or tutorials. Linux is about sharing and even helping people so what if your little but gets taken and people use it. I think sure we should have a site for how tos but make it so ppl can copy it. To me linux-noob is to help not fame and glory.
