    Yeah, sounds like the same bug. I ended up just chunking the board and ordering him a new nForce4 Socket 939 board... EPoX again, but I really can't be bothered to look up their completely...

    Problems with 8RDA

    Hi all,

    My brother's 8RDA has been acting up lately. This is a system I built several years ago and functioned quite well at first. However, it began to exhibit some odd symptoms, e.g., long...

    Re: Firefox .09?

    It's working fine for me. It's quite snappy in response, loading, and rendering. The default theme is quite ugly, but it's also very clear; I find many apps that look "beatiful" to be less...

    On my computer (Gentoo), such icons live in /usr/share/icons. YMMV, good luck!

    Re: time to put linux on my lappie

    Are you going to continue to use Mandrake after you install Gentoo? If not, I don't see why you wouldn't want to install from something like Knoppix. You'll still have a functioning distro while...

  8. Re: ATI fglrx 3.9.0 released (for newer radeon cards)

    That performance is surprising to me. The only thing I can think of is that somehow the driver has installed correctly but is not being used. What does your XF86Config (or xorg .conf, whichever is...

    Re: I'm back to Linux, got few questions

    Use Eclipse for Java if you want a full-fledged development environment... if you're just hacking code, stick with VI, or, if you're using KDE, there's KDevelop which I find works pretty nicely. ...

    Re: I'm back to Linux, got few questions

    Oh, RE Java, you might want to consider using the Sun VM in any case; it gives very detailed error messages at both compile-time and run-time. I found it to be a major boon when programming!

    Re: ndiswrapper (wireless)

    I haven't, Navin. I was going to look into it, since my Linux box now has three (3!) network adapters, and use it as an IP masquerading box. But, it seemed more trouble than it was worth. I am...

    Finally rolled out wireless in my house. I have (for the time being) a cheap Trendnet card with the Realtek 8180 chipset. Since Realtek hasn't released any updated drivers for Linux (most recent...

    Re: FC2 3D Support, 9800 Pro

    Afaik, ATI's 3D drivers do not function properly with xorg, which FC2 uses. I think you'll have to wait for a hack or attempt to install XFree86 instead; that could be tricky.

    Re: Linux actually crashed?

    It *should* work, as long as X itself isn't borked, because no application can trap that particular escape sequence if it is running on top of X. But then, you never know! If the kernel is borked,...

    Re: Linux actually crashed?

    Although for many intents and purposes it's the same as rebooting the box, you can try Ctrl+Alt+Backspace, which kills the X server. Your system will, depending on how you have it set up, then bring...

    It appears that your grub.conf file was not working because you accidentally deleted the line telling it where to find the initrd.

    Just FYI, gcc 3.4 includes *MUCH* better support for x86-64, and I think that probably within a week or two it will be fairly stable over the Gentoo system; right now, there are only a handful of...

    You can also download Knoppix and use it boot to a prompt. Then just mount your boot partition and edit the .conf file.
