I've been interested in Linux since 2004 with Suse 9.0 (actually paid for it at Best Buy). Tried Mandrake LE2005, various Mandriva's, openSUSE up to 11.1, but have been with Ubuntu seriously since Dapper. Have tried KDE's in various distros but I have been using Gnome since Heron.

Error opening /dev/sdb:Permission denied

What distribution are you using?

So, instead of typing `program-name --argument' to run your program as a normal user, you'd type `sudo program-name --argument' to run your program as the root user, and then everything should be dandy.

I have been using fossil scm for the last half year and I am very pleased with it.

Being a longtime svn user, you need to get your head around it but eventually, I believe this tool is just great.

I actually started with git but due to the fact that installing more than just the basics did not work out, I switched to Fossil, partly also because I am a big fan of Sqlite which has been developed by the same person.

A question answered.

Well, ever since I first heard of Hannah Montana Linux, I wondered if there was any mileage in themed remasters.

In order to get some idea myself, I remastered PCLinuxOS Zen Mini with some cosmetic changes for a dog owner forum. Generally not very tech oriented people at all...

I tried to provide as much easily accessible information as I could, including info for using Live CDs etc. but the underwhelming response I got was it was still all too much for them to understand......
