Let's face it.. I'm a n00b. Everything you reply with here, should be said so that even your 3 years old daughter who knows nothing about computers would be able to understand it
I looked at Lycoris ( b4 known as Redmond ) and asked here if that was worth a try, and was actually told to smack those who suggested it. Is the opinions about Lycoris still the same ? I have to say that their GUI looks great ( except that stupid bar which all Linux distro's seems to have ).. and.. well.. I know that GUI just is something, but I'm weak when I see something which looks great.. I just have to have it. Though if it's to bugged, I wouldn't dream of installing it... ppl here said it was, so... well is the opinion the same ?
Ok... due to the opitions said by many of the skilled ppl here, I decieded to use ( that is, IF the opinions about Lycoris hasn't chanced ) Mandrake as my first try.
There's a few thing which I need to get straight though. And here I ask you to remember the stuff about me being a n00b.
I'm going to download the Mandrake 8,2 RC 1 and install that.
But when that's done I need to:
1) Setup a internet connection, so that I can get at the net as fast as possible.
2) Get Wine ( is WineX a part of Mandrake 8,2 ?? Anybody who knows ? ) compiled, so it can be used. I know it's not the best, but it's said to run Baldur's Gate 2, and that's ALL I'm using.
3) Find a good IRC chat to Linux. Any who have a good URL ?
4) Learn to use the GCC compiler-thingie. Especially where I have to click to load it up, and run it.
5) Get other good stuff, so that I can make it all good looking and user-friendly.
I would appriciate if somebody could give a good Step-By-Step
guide to my above stuff. I know it will tale long.... perhaps ages to answer in a good step by step way, but think about it.. you'll be able to sticky this topic at the board
and save allot of time when the next n00b pop's out and ask the same (probably stupid ) questions.
Ow.. I saw that you could have Wine start when you boot. Is that something which it does automaticly when it' installed.
