Re: Problems Linux 12 Booting

You think grub became corrupt on install?

Re: Wine and program shortcuts

Have you tried right clicking on the .exe and clicking the "Make Link" button? Then just move the link to your desktop. I had this same problem before, and this worked. Tell me if it helps :)

Re: What are your top tips for a Newbie?

I would definitely say use Google Chrome. It is faster than Firefox, and your web experience will be more enjoyable!

Re: Having a bit of trouble.

Sounds to me like this post should be in the "Hardware Support" section. Might want to move it there.

IMO this sounds like a driver issue. Did you look at the manufacture website and see if the USB transmitter supports Linux?

32 Bit vs 64 Bit

Now days, 64 bit is really the only way to go. But I have had problems with 64 bit flash, enough to keep my using 32 bit. :(

Re: Considerations before you install

Hello, I am new here.

Have you ever sat back and thought about the old days of Unix? How long it took to get one system set up and configured? The last Linux install I did took about 10 minutes on a new system. I am blown away at the progress that has been made in the past years.
