Hello, long time reader first time poster. I am currently using Ubuntu (best distro with Ati support, and based on debian, always a plus
I have 3 questions I hope you guys can help me with:
1. I have installed Doom 3 correctly, but I am getting an OSS and MMAP error. I really don't have a clue what this is. Am I missing a library of some sort relating to OSS? I can't find much information on google, I searched on here but the solutions people have posted don't work for me as I don't think I have OSS in the first place. I did a search on Synaptic and found some OSS related packages. But they seem to be installed. Maybe someting I need to install or configure?
Also I am having another problem on the subject of installing, I have pretty much conquered rpm's, deb's, and using alien. but how do I properly install TAR archives? for example I am trying to install Kino:
First I extract it:
tar -xvzf kino.tar.gz
Then go to the Drawer:
And it goes all nuts at me, can't find file or folder...my ubuntu if it can't, because it is definetly there, I am doing this all as root, but I just can't do the ./configure, never have done, in any distro!
Last question (thank you for bearing with me for this long
you god of a linux user you!) I don't have a Root account as such. I can get SU in a terminal window, but I can not actually log into root, from the main logon screen.
I hope you guys can help me,
