Hi, am new to berry linux. I have the live cd 72, and it is not going online to the internet. I never had such a problem with any other distro. It looks soooo beautiful, but without being connected to the internet it will not help me. It should detect it automatic, then i tried to go to netcard and it will not get online, i use only etho1, not etho0, so what to do? it gives me kind my ip add and some other numbers and i just click ok always, and then i try to gt online, but again, it will not do this. help. I don`t want to install it, I want to use the live cd.

He has the network setup to his gateway and addy. You can edit that as root user in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 and /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1 .
Also, have a look at /etc/sysconfig/network.

Then, I would run as root the command: service network restart.

There is a tool in the kmenu for network setup but, I have not always had good results from that.

Berry Linux 0.73 is available from LQ ISO....two clicks away... It is a nice distro (LIVE)....too pretty for me. Also, I could not Copy from the Console, but that is probably something I am doing wrong.....ReaderRat

Alot of times if you highlight it in the console, and then middle click (the wheel) in the text box, it will copy and paste for you.

That's right, it uses yum by default. You can update by using the command: yum update

Your having broadband connection? You need to manually
add IP address, subnet mask, DNS settting and then you'll be able
to browse internet.

I am a brand new spanking newbie at Linux and am really excited!
I am interested in the Berry Linux but I just want to clear one thing for myself.
If I use the LIVE CD of Berry Linux, I essentially run the kernel off the cd?
Because I'm new at this I just dont want to install anything or delete any partitions. I also play alot of computer games so I am hoping I can just not load the LiveCD and boot up windowsxp as normal...is this correct?

Any information would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks,
Cupillac

Hello Cupillac,
Well, LIVE Linux can't give you 100% equal performance which an installed OS gives. LIVE Linux is a good kick start to learn linux.
To get familier with GUi interface of Linux. When you use LIVE Linux for some time, you can think of switching to installable version of Linux OS no matter which distro. I am still a newbie some how. I dont no much linux command line.

I suggest you to go for "Mandriva 2007" version. It's very user friendly linux distro. I use it from the beginning. And good thing about Mandriva is it detects all hardware devices, and installs drievrs automatically. You dont need to install drivers separately.

About games..Hmmmm..Windows based games are designed only for Microsoft Windows OS's. They cant run on Linux. But in market there are many games designed for Linux as well. in Berry Linux LIVE you get small games with it by default.

LIVE CD is nothing but linux which boots from CD. If you remove the cd from the cd rom, Windows XP will boot in normal mode.

Regards,
Amey Abhyankar.

Which linux distro your going to install? I sugegst Mandriva. Very user friendly linux distro. I am not advertising Mandriva . But it's true. Mandriva is cool and supports most common computer hardware including dial up modems

Regards,
Amey.

Hands down i diffently should make the switch.

if you want an easy newbee user friendly Linux distro, so i woud tell you only PClinuxOS all the way. I use now Mandriva 2007 for a week installed, or more, and there is not everything working like it should, and also you can`t install anything from the Synaptic, i don`t no why?
in Pclinuxos is all there waht you need, and its the best and most user friendly distro.
I Go back to pclinuxos when i can use my wireless connection, this is the only thing why I use right now Mandriva 2007, cause there i can use my wireless connection. But also in Pclinuxos is it already in the Synaptic since today. I wait till the pclinuxos 2007 release comes out the end of this month, and hen I am back there completely. From there al works out of the box.
Regards.
