Mine hasn't altered since the last time, I am still a dedicated gentoo user. I do take time to experience the other distributions but I always my daily use desktop which runs gentoo.

Xandros is the only one that's working for me, I hated Solaris 10 and had problems with Suse 10 and they finally fixed some stuff in Xandros 4.

 

Hi Anyweb thanks for the past email to come back here, so Hi I'm back and using Xandros 4.1.

So far most of the problems I was having before are fixed by the latest upgrade. Music doesn't hang or lock up and xine is work in and amaork is alive and well.

Wish my lighted keyboard was included in that but not.

 

Can anyone tell me how to fix evolution to load and run minimized after boot-up?

 

Thanks and Hello again.

Total newb alert (regarding myself).

I've been bouncing arround trying different distros for about 2 months now, and have more or less settled with fc6 although DSL is kinda nice for an anywhere anytime distro. I'd also like to take the time now just to say to everyone, and that this probably wont be the last time I'll be posting on this forum. So far I'm pleasently surprised with linux and am looking forward all the stuff I can learn using it.

Peace :P

I use Fedora 7 at the moment. It is pretty simple, good looking distro. I think a lot of people think 'blah, this is GUI, everything is with gui, it has yum, it sux' but the truth is you can compile everything and you can do everything without gui like in other distros. But there are some things which makes me nervous... On example I tried to install xvidcap in yum, but it said i need mplayer as a dependence... But I had already compiled mplayer by myself, heh.

Thats the annoying thing with most distros, to install things via yum or RPM there are dependancy errors constantly. I'm not too sure how to fix these erros either which doesn't help, but back to the point, the main reason why I prefer Ubuntu over other distros such as Fedora and SuSE is that to install something all I need to do in most cases is <i> sudo apt-get install *software*</i>. The APT package managment save a lot of time and reduces stress!

 

Same goes for source codes, 90% of the time, install from source fails. I type the usual "./cofigure" and get errors saying this or that failed therefore I cannot continue and do the "make","make install" commands.

 

As you probably guessed, I have voted for Ubuntu.

Started on DeadRat5.2/6.1, progressed onto RH8 for my home server and Mandrake7.2 on a leased server, tasted SuSE9.1 then upgraded my home machine to FC4 - being mostly comfortable with RPM-based systems.

 

A works machine started life as SuSE9.1, moved to FC4 then piecemeal upgraded all the way to FC7.

 

Another leased machine runs FC5.

 

I've played with Debian and Ubuntu but not in great depth. Most people I know with those don't know it as deeply as I know Fedora, so can't answer some questions I'd like in migrating (hell, my RPM-based knowledge has helped *them* in times of difficulty!)

 

Oh, and I teach AIX, HP-UX, Solaris and Linux admin (FC8) courses.

 

Currently, I'm taken with CentOS - looking at putting v5 on my new home boxen.

 

I wouldn't say I like Fedora the best; just that I'm probably more comfortable with it (I know SuSE is much better-organised).
