XP Reprieved

Posted 03-13-2009 at 08:47 AM by brianL

I've decided to keep XP Pro on my laptop. After all, it's never given me any trouble, it might come in useful, and I've loaded it up with Cygwin and other non-M$ stuff. I have no objections to the OS, only to the gang who make it.
I've gone back to using Slackware 12.2 after my little experiment with Slackware current. Chickened out, don't think I know enough yet to handle it.

update on external hardisk

today I took the disk (see previous post /questions/blog/robertvi-358970/problems-with-new-external-hard-disk-1711/) back to the shop with my receipt, and a helpful attendant plugged it into a windows laptop there, and noticed that it said "this device can perform faster" meaning that it was only working as a usb1 device (uhci, not ehci) under windows as well. so i swapped the disk for a 320GB one, after she first checked the new disk by plugging it into the windows laptop.

at home, I can...

Restoring the KRDC menu

Posted 03-12-2009 at 10:32 AM by drask

The company I work for is a windows shop. Since I'm a Linux guy and telecommute most of the time, I rely on KVpnc and KRDC to connect to my remote desktop when I need to work with company Windows Only applications.

I recently had a problem with KRDC version 3.93 in OpenSuSE 10.3. When I first started it up, I was playing with the menu options and either clicked on "Settings->Show Menu Bar" or typed CTRL-M to see what would happen. What happened was my main menu disappeared,...

Posted 03-12-2009 at 10:07 AM by bjrn64 (And the winner is.)

my initial interest in computers came about because i gamble on horses but i have to sift through large form books

so each time i looked through a good days racing, it takes all night i didnt mind i enjoy it but i knew i would have to do something about it.

XP Xterminated?

Posted 03-12-2009 at 07:54 AM by brianL

Ever since I got this laptop (about 6 months ago), I've been dithering about what to do with the XP Pro that came pre-installed. Keep it, just for the sake of variety? Get rid of it, because I hardly spend any time on it? When I deleted XP Pro from my desktop I never missed it - not for even a nanosecond. That space it's taking up, 30 GB on a 160 GB HDD, should be put to better use. Something else I can't make up my mind about: whether to just scrub XP by installing another distro in that partition,...
