    Ubuntu 8.10
  1. I definitely plan on installing it and using it for awhile - I've heard nothing but good things about it. Now, whether or not it works with my hardware is another thought all together.
  2. I like to consider myself a guru in some aspects, but I'll be the first one to admit there are still many things I don't know.
  3. My favorite distro is Gentoo, but I've been using Ubuntu lately.

    Hey - I'm prime

    Hey everyone - I'm prime. I'm a senior in highschool who happens to have a lot of experience with Linux, Windows, servers and programming. Web dev is my specialty, but I can run a server pretty well, too. I've got quite the resume and am trying to get into MIT for the next fall semester. I'm hoping to share some of my knowledge here on these boards.
  5. I'm downloading the Fedora 10 iso right now. I'm thinking about trying it in a VM first to see how I like it, then maybe switching my desktop from Ubuntu 8.10 to Fedora 10.
  6. Honestly, I'm not sure if you can compile and run a 32bit application on a 64bit OS. Maybe you can get it to run in a 32bit VM. As for the RAM, yeah, that's a problem. 32bit OSs can only see so much ram. I think there is a way to patch this - at least with Windows XP, though I may be wrong.
  7. I believe there is a problem with the GRUB configuration. If you had a bit more knowledge I would suggest you to check your GRUB configuration files and kernel locations, however, since you say you are a noob with Linux, I suggest reinstalling Ubuntu. If that still doesn't work, let me know and I'll see about running you through a check of GRUB.
