FunnyMan3595: one more thing, should i maybe install kde instead of xfce?
|FunnyMan3595||brokemyX: Careful. That kind of question can start a holy war.|
|brokemyX||FunnyMan3595: lool.. word. well i'll go with xfce for now maybe if i don't lik eit i'll try kde as well :P|
|FunnyMan3595||brokemyX: Given your video card, you've probably got a reasonably new system...|
brokemyX: So you should be able to handle every WM known to Linux.
|jkeith||brokemyX: depends on your needs|
|brokemyX||FunnyMan3595: yes, amd athlon 3500+ 1 gig of ram.. this video card i just bought.|
FunnyMan3595: i noticited though when i hit startx, it takes a bit to load..is this common?
|FunnyMan3595||brokemyX: Right. At that point, it's up to your preference. I run Gnome+Beryl, I know people who swear by KDE, I've got a friend running XFce because the comp can't handle Gnome, and from what I hear, fluxbox is popular among Gentoo users.|
|brokemyX||FunnyMan3595: yes eventually i want to run beryl as well, i would like an interface like sabayon..thats wha ti was using.|
|FunnyMan3595||brokemyX: If you've got the disk space, you may just want to install a bunch of them and test 'em out.|
|brokemyX||FunnyMan3595: but sabayon was slow an di heard xfce is fast, and it iwll work with beryl as well..|
|jkeith||brokemyX: I flip back and forth between gnome/kde/xfce|
|brokemyX||FunnyMan3595: ok i have 200 gigs :D hehe|
|jkeith||brokemyX: they all have their good and bad points|
|brokemyX||lol im just happy it works now!|
thanks for all your help i'll be back with my results :D
hopefully with a working gui!
|TheFueley||Hello all. Have a Q. Is there a .NET equivalent in *nix?|
|pl0x||Anyone familiar with crip? CD ripping program for Linux. Emerge can't seem to find it|
|RobbieAB||pl0x: it probably isn't in portage then.|
no support for forms though, iirc
|FunnyMan3595||pl0x: There's a grip and a rip.|
|kasyx||Hi. I just followed the docs for installing Alsa, and everything seems to have installed fine, but I get no sound, and I don't know where to look or how to solveit|
|RobbieAB||Kasyx: have you unmuted the speakers?|
|kasyx||RobbieAB: yes, I used alsaconf.|
|FunnyMan3595||Kasyx: Run alsamixer yet?|
|kasyx||RobbieAB: and that was the first thing I checked ;-)|
FunnyMan3595: that's run as part of Alsaconf, but just to make sure, yes I did
|RobbieAB||Kasyx: Always start with the obvious...|
|kasyx||RobbieAB: indeed. That particular one caught me out a few times already :-D|
|tuxick||pl0x: you mean grip ?|
