I don't mean to be rude, but... What are you asking?

Sorry, but I was unable to decipher your post.

Do you have a particular problem?

I would recommend using shorter sentences explaining directly what the problem is.

If you make specific questions, you will get specific answers.

If you have unrelated questions, create separate posts.

If you want to rant against windows, go to the appropriate forum. you don't have to excuse yourself for using it.

You should also try to throw some commas and periods around your sentences. They will make your message clearer.

Here are some examples:
If you don't know where to start you can write something like the following:

How do I install software in Xandros?

I am new to linux. I have just installed Xandros. How can I install applications in Xandros 1.6?


If you have already tried to install and found problems, you can write something like the following:

Error 'Invalid authority' when installing Xine.

I am new to linux. I have just installed Xandros and now I want to install Xine.
I downloaded the rpm from
When I try to install it with the following command

rpm -i xine-gui

I get the following error

'Invalid authority'
