    Re: What Linux distro do you prefer and why?

    I'm using RHEL, but any RHEL clone (CentOS, SL etc) would fit the bill.

    I started out on Red Hat Linux here on this very forum and then migrated to Fedora Core and subsequently Fedora, but soon...

    Hi Spanky,

    These days I tend to run any needed Windows instances in a VM (vmware is still popular, and kvm is a great native choice too). Saving work off to a networked drive on the host allows...

    Re: Ubuntu 10.04LTS is Here!

    We have seen this (or a very similar) issue on RHEL/CentOS too if folks run the latest Mozilla binaries for Firefox. (The native RHEL/CentOS packages are unaffected as they still run 3.0.x, and only...

    What's your output from 'uname -r'

    Hi folks,

    Just looking for a little feedback from others here. It looks as if the behaviour of the output from 'uname -r' in Fedora has changed sometime recently (well, between F6 and F12), and...

    Re: linux on my new lappy

    hehe, sounds like they're beta testing this on Windows users :D

    Still, we can do it manually (or even scripted):


    init 3
    rmmod some_intel_drv.ko
    modprobe some_nvidia_drv.ko

    Not on Java per se, only the Java plugin :)

    In other words, Java applets should be able to find your installed Java just fine.

    Ah, yes, SUN's Java is a bit of an exception in that new RPMs are installed alongside existing versions, rather than upgrading. This is not dissimilar to how Java behaves on Windows. Don't get me...

    assuming it's called topcat6.

    Yeah, not sure how the 5400 rpm drive in my laptop would fair, but not as fast as modern 3.5 SATAII/III drives for sure.

    It's a really common fault for the power connection on the motherboard to fail. Sometimes it's solder-able if you're feeling brave. Lets hope it's not that :)

    Re: The Penguin Bar

    Is anyone using Thunderbird 3 yet? If so, what do you think of it?

    I tried it out briefly a while back when it was released but didn't like it so reverted back to 2.0.x. Has it got any better?
