I am trying to help my students understand & accept Linux(slack) more. I was Win user during my college days and now I honestly
regret. I still know Windows better though and I joined in to change that, working hard...
Now, I got brand new box :ABIT FATAL1TY AA8XE withAMD64 Athlon,1Gb,NVidia GeForce 7100GS / trying to make some useful services available.
It was kinda working under 22.214.171.124 but I knew I had to recompile it, so I upgrade it on 2.6.21. I was trying to configure new kernel (was amazed how much knowledge you ALWAYS miss
) but now I have Kernel panic not syncing: IO-APIC + timer does not work.
I CAN boot up passing noapic parameter, but
thats not it.
I really need help
, I do not want to install windows in order to use such a cool motherboard.
My idea is to start introducing students with Apache-Tomcat, Cygwin, MySql, FTP, user home pages. Any other suggestions you guys think students could pick up, please I would like to hear it from you.
Also, I have 320Gb NTFS hdd on that box as /dev/sdb1. My plan was to share some space and have some (special) users about 4-5 Gb share available. Please little help on how to achieve that goal?
Any comment is more than welcome. Thank you for your time.
