Cool oh help me god! lol


ok I've installed fordora core 3. had some problems finding information and installing and checking things out.my first problem was trying to check the md5sum at the web site they failed to mention you have to download md5summera complier for windows to check the iso md5sums , how ever i didn't find in the forms but in the faq for noobie installers, everyone is saying check the md5sums against the downloaded iso files. so for those who are in charge of the web sites please add that bit in there!any how my system is an amd 64 althon 939 pin with an asus a8v delux motherboard 2x 512 of ddr400 ram sampson, ati video card powercolour 9250 for a cheap card works really well. logitech 700 cordless mouse, keyboard, sceptre x5s iguana 15" ldc, logitec x530 speaker system, flight stick and dual gaming pad, the system is not overclocked dvd rom and a cdrw 120gig maxtor hard drive 80gigwindows. and the rest for linux. than we installed partition magic and were almost their untill my friend found out it was the demo version, than the hard drive was not installed, programe to find the hard drive, boot windows up, than my hard drive had and extra 30 gigs on it tried system restore, no restore points reformated the drive, reinstall windows download and burn iso 64 images droped linux in checked the cd media all failed, installed it after reading that the cd media checker is waste of time. lol installed great rebooted got to the end and hung up dam! so close, thought hummm perhaps i need to up date my nero 5.5 up dated and burned 3 iso images tried to reinstall and had more errors than the first set of disks hung up, reinstalled the first set of cds, and it worked i was amazed, up dated got it going was playing with it, reset the colours from 256 to 1000 see what the difference was. big mistake after rebooting get to the end and hangs up back were i started. lol i'm learning the hard way and yes i did burn my iso images at 4x, md5 check sums on the money my viedo card makes changes as it finishes trying to get to the log in screen the lcd is good for 16 million colours, i also had problems slecting the generic lcd driver or any diver the ok button would not work i don;t have a driver for the lcd its always adapts, also after downloading the bios update it still comes up as an error, yet it still booted up. my friend tried to do a rescue got inside but did'nt know the command for the display, my friend has a redhat book 7.1, its more of a starter guild, Is this a simple cure or should we do another install,
for all those who are starting out the end result is worth it, KDE is sweet !
just have to play with it get some of the language and your rolling in no time
I think most of my trouble rests in my video card, it works quite well with my games, i like the idea of having parts that are adaptable, shows that ati lacks intrest in the market tends, going to a blog march 2 that should be good as well so is thier a sweet nivida card that works well in the linux?

WOW! You might hurt your fingers typing stuff like that. You know there is a Enter key on the keyboard which can be used to leave blank lines in the text. There's also a spell checker on the submit page.

Ant it's Fedora not "fordora".

Anyway, all that writing for one tiny question?

Glad though that you call it "the linux".

To manandmachine,
I assume that man does the thinking and machine the typing? Because, wow, I just can't keep up with you!

Go to nivida homepage (look for nivida forums on google), they have all the drivers you'll need there. They say 'linux users please search for your answers do not post' but you have to sign up to search. kinda annoying.

. . . not to mention the Shift Key and proper punctuation!

isnt it annoying 2 hav 2 sit thru idiotic posts typed in kiddie speak where folks jst typ on & on without worrying about making posts readable 4 u? I am disgusted by what i see here hence my signature for u aol users to read (assuming you CAN read) and hang ur heads in shame.

I couldn't resist another chance to slam lazy typists today.

All the nvidia cards work in linux really well, esp tnt2m64 and up. GF 1,2,3,4 FX's and the 6xxx series. I have some of all of those except the 6xxx's

YEA I know that its typed the way the rock writes.lol
I was too tried when i wrote it, better now with 12 hours.
i was looking at the amount of words and was thinking i was over the limit so I started hacking away at it, lol then i realized it was 25000 not 2500. Opps lol

Trying to get Fedora back, but she being picky, so I am going to reformat the drive, doing her again.
hey thanks for the reply on the cards!
usually I out think way past my typing, or writing. Grammar I have a hard time with, but i like quantum physics, do it like the back of my hand. I had to lose something in order to gain another.
thats why like linux its based on a chaos, to every where all at once all the time, I had to die to get it!
Energy can cannot be created or destroyed first law of physics,
you are made from energy, fractal chaos signature, the human mind works on a chaos pattern, and we use a substandard lanague in English to volley our thoughts, no wonder everyone is confused, mostly from everyone being a different energy signature pattern, and brings me back to linux being open source of information, in order to understand linux you must become linux
open minded non-conditional, when you condition it, you stop learning, you become stagnet, stuck in our own condition, its universal paradigm

Slow down man! Like you were asking something about drivers, right? Now you're teaching us physics? And the spelling of your last post isn't much better than the first one. Or maybe you're too tired again

Slow down. I don't know who's laws of physics you practice, but that is certainly NOT the first law of any physics I know. There is a first law of Newton (I wouldn't call this a first law of physics, however): An object in motion with no outside forces acting upon it will stay in motion, at the same velocity and direction. And a stationary object with no outside forces acting upon it will stay stationary...

Of course the SECOND law of Newton includes the first, which simply states that ACCELERATION equals the FORCE applied to an object divided by it's MASS.

And Einstien came up with the idea that energy CAN be created (and possibly destroyed), you trade a little bit of mass for a lot of energy in atomic reactors...

You were asking something about drivers?

i think he's referring to the first law of thermodynamics which is also known as the principle of conservation of energy-energy can be transferred from one system to another but can be neither created nor destroyed.

Einstien gave us a mass/energy conversion with E=mc^2. Not really 'creation' but rather that energy and matter are just two forms of the same thing...

Wow! You can learn something new on LQ every day. But physics lessons! What next? Perhaps we could have a dissertation on microbiology.

you missed it

I was just making a point, you missed the reference.
you create nothing in this world, sorry you can only manipulate.
your illusion of creating. There are many words that are conditioned to mean things and it comes from other people long ago, we never really add to our dictionary words, they are preset from long ago, we might add new words to the dictionary, but we really never touch the words into other meanings, having facts, factual or being with facts is a guidance of reference. facts are to make things believable, and facts are only as good as the last time you updated them, and facts change all the time.
what are you trying to create?
energy can not be created or destroyed, is it true? not talking about newton or Einstein and what physics theory's were first, what I am talking about is which law is first, without quantum physics nothing else makes sense, every thing else is assumption based on theory, and theory's are based on the tools you use to make it factual, the tools are based on the theory energy is not created or destroyed, the root of all energy is chaos based, thus the root of linux is the kernel.
What can you create, or is it really manipulation, we can make more energy with less, we do not create it, by waving a magic wand and it appearers, we have to manipulate energy to make new forms of energy, same for destroying energy, it turns into another form of energy, this is what the periodic table is about. everything else is slang.
this where anti-dark matter, quarks and quirks come from they give reference to physics laws and theory's sometimes the end result is having to change or add to the older laws from the facts based on the tools they are using.
I don't make things my ideas factual. I make points of reference so I can add to them, so they can grow make new things, new ideas and comes higher thinking patterns, thus new perspectives

How does this relate to linux, in reference to the kernel as the root, if you condition the kernel, the kernel will not have higher functions, you box the kernel and set the rules. this my disappointment with windows you have basically one persons idea of conditioning an OS, rather than 1% form a hundred people vs 100% from one person.
you can change the automation of processes, you have a smoother running of an OS.
the kernel's base is chaos based making it universal to be adaptive allows for change and growth and yes it is energy, not created but manipulated to manipulate other energy.

yes microbiology is chaos based as well, prime example of how things work, how a virus or bacteria can think, a virus or bacteria can manipulate itself, mutate into another energy form of strain, when its being attack, it shows a higher function at its root, not only will the virus or bacteria survive but will feed off of the attacker in some cases.
a good program thus begins with its root.
reference materials from Joel Arther Barker- paradigms
Quantum physics theories, classics, super-strings, color, mechanics, worlds, space time.
David Suzuki- from naked ape to super species
