Fix the arrow keys in the Ubuntu Perl debugger

Posted 02-01-2010 at 12:14 PM by drask

This is just a quick note to myself.

Rethink on "Shall We C?"

Problem During Installation

Posted 01-30-2010 at 10:36 PM by kumar.manoj412

Hello Friends,

Last week, I purchased an AMD machine (Athlon II X3, getforce6100 chip set). I installed Mandriva 2009 on it. Now I am trying with some other disros like Fedora, Ubuntu, Centos, Debian, Open Suse etc. Except Mandriva 2010 no other distro detect partition on my SATA HDD (WDC). A pop come during installation and give two option 1) Ignore Drive 2) Re-Initialize Hard Drive. I can not afford to select any of these two options. I tried on some blogs, but I got NO SOLUTION....
