  1. i cannot find support for the sound blaster 128 pci card with ensoniq 5880 chipset. lspci: Multimedia audio controller: Ensoniq 5880 AudioPCI (rev 02) i've read that es1371 supports it, however, although it seems to initialize, alsa errors out with it. it's my presumption that this is not the right module. anyone have this chipset working in linux?
  2. haha. i didn't think anyone would pay any attention to the poll much less vote. i think it's just great.
  3. okay, i'm going to take a guess at this for fun. whether i win or not is irrelevant. my guess is: 2 minutes, 45 seconds.
  4. that's some nice hardware. i do have other machines here. three are XP though. they're used by other users and they're entitled to their own OS. the other systems here are as follows: p4 3.0ghz ht/1gb ram (sold) p4 2.4ghz/1gb ram p4 1.7ghz/512mb ram p3 550mhz/256mb ram p2 350mhz/128mb ram dual p2 300/384mb ram ipp166mmx/64mb ram
  5. just for general reference.. this machine is running Windows XP Professional Corporation SP2: Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe Motherboard AMD Athlon XP 2100+ (1.73GHz) 1024MB DDR2100 (266MHz) RAM 120GB Samsung U-ATA 133, 7200RPM, 8MB Cache HDD 60GB Maxtor U-ATA 133, 7200RPM, 2MB Cache HDD 80GB Maxtor U-ATA 100, 5400RPM, 2MB Cache HDD (Storage Only) server running Slackware Linux Kernel 2.4.30: Asus A7V133 Motherboard AMD Athlon XP 1700+ (1.5GHz) 512MB DDR2100 (266MHz) RAM 4.5GB WD U160 SCSI HDD/Adaptec 29160UW SCSI Controller 40MB Maxtor U-ATA 133, 7200RPM, 2MB Cache HDD (Storage/Backup
  6. never! on servers at the data center, i'd used mainly redhat/fedora because they're very quick set up for that type of quick-paced environment where uptime and the time it takes to put customers' servers online (especially when you have to build them first) count most. everything's pretty much automatically set up these days from first boot. i use slackware. i live it, i love it. i wouldn't ever change my personal server to another distro.

    Favorite Donut

    french/honey crullers are awesome. so fluffy and melt away in your mouth. it's almost not even a donut, but some sort of dessert delicacy.
  8. lynx! nothing hacks lynx! haha.
  9. Other: Depending on the machine and its video display, either 800x600 or 1024x768, and they're all console.
  10. i think one of the poll answer should have been, "i use console". 'cause, i just use console. i chose "other".
  11. i'll be 25 in september. yay me. nerd (nerdX/nerdXX)
  12. okay, i'll post a couple 'cause i don't look the same all the time.. "take your picture for me. just put your hands on your side and take a picture." so i did and now i look like a serial killer: now this is my real serial killer picture. len (darkfires) calls me a columbian druglord: one of the very few times i had hair over the past 6-7 years: nerd (nerdX/nerdXX)
