so i tryed ti figure out a way to do something for it... because I'm not a programmer I started to be a "Linux promoter"
That is an admirable and possibly a monumental task! Hats off to you.
(This may or may not directly help you with your problem - I'm just writting)
First off, I'm sure you don't want to hold everyones hand on every issue they
have or will have. But since it appears atleast to start with you will be
helping all your friends along, I'd suggest trying to keep them on all the same
distro. For #1, it'll be easier on you (as I'd guess it'd be the distro you are most
familiar with) and #2, Then they could eventually help eachother as I'm sure some
may catch on faster then others, this would take you out of the support loop.
I got Suse 10.0 I tried that one at another frend but there where no video codecs!
Also, for your future reference, here is anather site:
...an older pc (128 RAM Amd Duron@1300Mhz and 32MB S3 built in agp) I tried to install Mandrake 10.2 but there where some sound issues...
The 128MB is doable, just a little less then prefered. But just becuase there was a
sound issue, I don't think you should have replaced it. A 1.3GHz is not THAT old, and
I'm sure unless it was WAY ODD, the soundcard could have been setup to work just fine.
Just some random thoughts thrown in your direction.
Good luck !
