Opera, multi channel sound...

Posted 11-26-2008 at 04:38 AM by linuxpokernut

I prefer Opera and so I installed that with great ease. A simple unzip and one command and it was up and running. seems stable so far, and flash and java plugins worked without any settings tweaked.

Noticed when I ran Pokerstars and Amarok at the same time I was able to hear both programs, this is the first *nix desktop that I have had that could multiplex. This will be swell if I can get ventrilo running. That shouldn't be hard, wine just needs a little help. I haven tun much in...

Distros

Posted 11-25-2008 at 08:09 PM by kezdeth

So I guess I've tried most of the major distros out there, and I can't really say that I have a favorite. But I can say that I love linux over everything else out there.

What *did* surprise me was, I ordered a new XPS M1530 laptop from Dell, with Ubuntu pre-installed, and what do you know? They got it right! Fantastic machine, killer OS, other than Dell's idea of customer service (no such thing available), nothing but a very positive experience.

Hi to every one.

I have been using Linux/BSD mostly Linux for about 4 years.

Best thing it is not windows!!! worst there are so many Good Distros.

I am using Zenwalk now and so far so good, I like being able to add bits and pieces from KDE, Gnome...

question: where is a good explation of installing from source on Slackware or Zenwalk.

Thanks
