I just installed RH 8 on my system (dual booting w/Win2k). The main reason I use Linux is for a particular program, ArahWeave. I dl'd and installed just as the instructions on the page suggest: http://www.arahne.si/installAWeave.html
I created the demo user, etc. and after installing it, I got the icons on the desktop and so forth. But when I click on the icons, it does nothing. Unfortunately I don't have a lot of Linux experience -- I only worked on it in the past (for this same program, only a previous version, which ran flawlessly on RH 7.x).
In the event anyone has successfully installed this prog (unlikely, but possible. . . ), can you give me some pointers?
In the alternative (i.e., "And now for the laughs"): I'm willing to go back to the old version which I have on a floppy. But I lost all my notes on mounting the floppy -- I have moved since I last installed the prog. I go into /mnt and it lists the floppy but if I click on the floppy icon, it does nothing.
I feel like I'm just clicking on things and nothing happens, no matter what. Can someone kindly help me, without too much ridicule?
Thank you in advance!!!
