Hi, my very first post here
I don't know where to post this. Probably a lot of place that I could. Anyway here goes.
I am very frustrated today. I have tried PCLOS. I like it, I get everything working in it except that it won't see my Western Digital 'My Book' external hard drive. I have it connected via firewire. In Mepis, it sees it as removeable storage, like a flash drive. In Ubuntu, it picks it up just fine.
Now I have Ubuntu 7.10 installed. But for some reason I cannot get my ATI Radeon X1950 Pro (PCIe) card driver installed properly. When I had it before, everything worked. I used the restricted driver, and did something else, but cannot remember what it was, and I got Compiz working fine, with the cube and all.
Personally, I would rather use PCLOS, but I just can't sacrifice it not seeing my external hard drive.
If someone can help me with either of these 2 problems, I would be very grateful as I am very frustrated and want to get my system up today.
