yes, it's live linux distro, aimed toward multimedia production...

Yes, I know, I did check out the website, but is it like a regular linux? because I also have SuSe 9.1 I Love it but I can't get some things to work, like Gnome, or Point2Play, WineX, and other programs, thats why I want to try some other versions of linux, do u guys have any other suggestions of some
"easy" linux distros?


Thanks,

no, it's not like a "regular" linux... it's a live cd, it doesn't need installation...

why don't you give mandrake a shot:

Is there a lot of things missing in mandrake like in SuSe 9.1 personal? Like gcc and make and stuff like that? and is it easy like SuSe, I mean does it support most of the hardware?


Thanks for the reply

all major distros come with gcc...

i think suse probably doesn't install it by default or something, but i'm sure it has it available (look in your yast)...

mandrake comes with a lot of stuff:

ftp://mirrors.secsup.org/pub/linux/m.../Mandrake/RPMS

ftp://mirrors.secsup.org/pub/linux/m...Mandrake/RPMS2

ftp://mirrors.secsup.org/pub/linux/m...Mandrake/RPMS3

I wish Dynebolic ran smooth as a kitten, but it doesn't. It's network finder can't find my ethernet card, so I can't do something as simple as get on the net using Firefox. Suse 9.1 however, has no problem finding the ethernet card. If you have any suggetions to remedy this problem with Dynebolic, I'd love to hear it.

This is an answer to myself, thanks to Dynebolic-lab.dyne.org, I found the answer to getting it to find my ethernet card. It's a Novell 2000 and the "lab" said Novell cards are a problem. It suggested running the following command in the X terminal "modprobe ne io=0x300 & pump". It found it and now I can agree, it runs smooth as a kitten. Hope this helps anyone else with this same problem.
