lol, this system is beginning to bug me, it all worked fine yesterday. I log out. woke up this morning and now I cant log back in to my account. I can log in to all other accounts for the rest of the family, I can also log in as root but when I use my account it just freezes after loading the windows manager. so I used root to delete my account and group and recreate it but no, still wont work. Does RH8 have a problem with people called 'chris' ? Also whats the difference between gnome and kde. I use gnome as it recommends it for beginners.
I'm supposed to be starting my Java programming course today, and I thought I would at least have this working so I could maybe write the first essay. Looks like I'll have to return to windows to do the job.
Flash doesnt work either. After installing netscape, it doesnt create a plugins direcotry in usr/lib/netscape/plugins. it puts it in usr/local/netscape/plugins. so I copied the 2 files there. typed 'about
: plugins' into netscape and it confirms it is installed but it dont work.
I think I could be up for my 6th install of RH.
Maybe if I use a workstation install rather than desktop? I dont know and dont understand this, its hard to learn when you cant even login.
