You are yet to get it all

There was a period of around 12 years, I used Windows-based system, even a HTC handheld with Windows installed. I thought, and perhaps think even now, that Microsoft treats you as a teenager and act like a 'big bro' which is good when your primary business is not with devices.

/dev/dsp permissions

Fixed sound for my regular users (sound worked fine for root in KDE). Was a simple matter of adding user to group audio, which I did through KUser.

Fixed disappearing eth0... maybe?

Posted 03-30-2009 at 03:43 PM by shannonbay

I added the following lines to /etc/rc.d/rc.modules:
Code:
alias eth0 tg3
modprobe tg3
Will see whether that works - eth0 has stayed put through two reboots.

Here is a compiled list from a LinuxQuestion posting (will be update accordingly):

6. Surf the internet, download files, pick up email without fear of the computer becoming infected with viruses, malware, etc. Linux - yes. Windows - it is possible to run as limited user which can limit malmare, but from my experience, it is difficult to use a Windows system as a limited user, and most people probably don't.

5. Ressurect old computer and use it as firewall, server, etc....
