About to give up... again !
It's funny how that works: sometimes, when a new distro comes out, I read the specs, the new features and the comments and I say to myself: "This is the one" ! So I install it and for the first hour it's always incredible, for the first week it's better than Windows, and after a month, I'm back to Windows !
I guess I'm just tired of spending all my evenings trying to make it do everything I need, reading all the forums I can find, searching the newsgroups and trying every suggestions anybody could give me.
It's been a month now that I've installed Mandriva 2005 LE (10.2), and I think it's about to end...
There's the only 2 things that I just can't get to work (maybe it's no big deal for some, but when it's something you use frequently, it has to work !):
-Using DVDDecrypter and DVDShrink with wine. DVDDecrypter says "No devices detected!" and DVDShrink doesn't want to install saying "Bad folder name". (I have Wine-20050930 - I tried everything I could find in the forums to get this to work)
-Printing multiple pages per sheets (I know it's possible but I don't want to have to create a ps output with everything I need to print... In Windows, I click "4 pages per sheet please!" and that's it).
But don't get me wrong here: I'd love to love Linux...
Any suggestion of another distro that would resolve my problems and not create some others !
So should I go search the forum to find out how to remove Linux and Lilo from my computer or is there some other things I should try ?
