I am currently in the process of switching from a very well known Microsoft operating system to a Linux Distribution.
A friend of mine said I should try Red Hat, so I downloaded Red Hat 9.0, which installed flawlessly.
I loved the nice look
My problem: It is unstable, I have no Idea why or whether I did something wrong or not, but every second time I ran a program it hanged up
So I downloaded Red Hat 7.3 (The Same friend told me this distro was more stable)
Well So I downloaded it, it installed flawlessly (again
) and a important thing:
Wine was preinstalled, Wine didn't work for me with Red Hat 9.0
Red Hat 7.3 looks pretty stable, but I don't like how it looks (yes yes I know that is a silly reason), could someone either explain me:
1. How to make Red Hat 7.3 (using KDE) look like Red Hat 9.0 (also KDE of course)
2. What I could do to make Red Hat 9.0 more stable (I would like this one more)
As you may see from the way I'm writing this text I am not a professional at Linux, I startet 2 days ago, so I am a total beginner, but I've already learned a bit about Linux.
Maybe the Red Hat 9.0 was unstable because of one of my Hardware Components:
Msi Ultra Kta3
Amd Athlon 2000xp+ (1.666 mhz)
512 mb ram (333)
2 80 gb hdds (those from IBM)
Geforce 4 Ti 4600
If Red Hat 9.0 wouldn't have been so unstable I would choose that one over 7.3 so hopefully someone has an idea
btw. I did a complete update with that up2date tool (including the Kernel)
Thank you in advance for any help you could give a Linux-Beginner
