Whats up with my Linux systems

Posted 08-01-2008 at 09:18 PM by stickleback

I have been running Ubuntu Hardy Heron on my 5yr. old P-4 and windows XP on the first HD. On my 10yr. old NEC P-2, 168mg. of RAM, I run LinuxPCOs. It runs really well on this old machine. The only problem I've had with Ubuntu Hardy, is that of trying to play a video from a web site. Some of them will not play. And the ones that do, sometimes have a problem with buffering. (You Tube) for example. Other than that I think it has come a long way. I have noticed on the LinuxpcOX system, that it came...

I recently bought a Dell AIO 810, mostly for the scanner, as I had 30 and 40 year old pics I wanted to backup to CD. Unfortunately, I didn't do my preparatory homework. LQ and other forums told me that no one had ever made that model work with Linux. I boxed it up and took it back to WalMart. Well....... It seems that Dell put one serial number on the box and a totally different one on the unit. So here I am, arguing with the manager, who is looking at me like I am trying to pull some kind of scam...

I have tried (latest version, and yes, I have an official and "stable" copy), AbiWord, and a few others.

Yet Another Blog?

Well, I may as well say a few things about myself, I guess.

1. I've been using Linux for about 8 years now, unless I'm remembering entirely wrong (and this is possible, as my concept of time is terrible). I don't know how, but I haven't even touched a computer with Windows on it in almost 4 years. Working at Lowe's a couple of years helped with that (they use Linux on every terminal).

2. My favorite distribution is Arch, and I love KDEmod....
