mepis 7

Posted 11-28-2008 at 07:36 PM by olderone

I have recently used the liveCD for Mepis 7 & found that I can play mp3's, jpg & even movie shots taken from my camera, copying from a CF card on the USB. I am very new to Linux & I would like to be able to connect to the internet wirelessly as I do with XP. So far no go. I have a Speedtouch 121g wireless adapter plugged into a USB socket. Can anyone tell me how I can do this, or is it not possible without having to install it on the hard drive. The router is WEP encrypted.

No matter what distro you use, I think we can all agree that Roy Orbison is the coolest guy who ever lived. With the 20th anniversary of his untimely death coming up next Saturday (6th of December), I implore you to go out and buy a Roy Orbison CD and celebrate his life.

Anyway, once you've done that, get back to work.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Yes Happy Thanksgiving, even to M$ users. I just had one thought before going to Turkey dinner at my Moms:

How many people said/will say they are thankful for open source at the dinner blessings tonite?

Does that seem weird to you? I dont know what to make of it. Sounds a bit 'nerdy' to be talking about at the dinner table, but if you think about it it makes sense. People donating time and effort to create free software and more people donating more time to teach new...

Hello, I would like you to help me make a list of some features of LINUX: the good stuff about it, the bad stuff and the interesting ones.

If you want, you can enumerate what you consider to be the best about linux (THE POSITIVE ABOUT IT), the worst about linux (THE NEGATIVE) and the Interesting about it...

For me, as a newbie and absolutely not skilled in programming or anything:

The positive about linux is:
  1. There are not viruses, or at least
