PeanutHorstt35t0r: no, but against SuSE i have ;)
ManweMit`, Monkeh : okay thanks.
PeanutHorstcruxeternus: the ability to get things done at a reasonable speed.
dopplemit: i did.... i module'd alsa, and the driver for my sound card
mac_minii keep geting Fatal server error:
no screens found
rulliecruxeternus, compiling with not needed code cuts file size of an executable, which means less ram space and fewer clock cycle. I don't think this has a significant impact, but it'll definite boost some* speed
cruxeternusPeanutHorst: Guess I'm just trying to manage expectations again. If you're coming here because RedHat is too slow, you may be disappointed with the results.
Mit`a config error then mac_mini
look back up through the logs
joriyou just both the card or etleast never runned it before in that machine ? or did you ever get it to work ?
PeanutHorstcruxeternus: um... i don't use RedHAt
mac_minii used xorgconfig
cruxeternusPeanutHorst: Or SuSE :)
ManweMonkeh: will i have a bit less speed if i run a 32 bit gentoo instead of 64 bit on my c2d ?
MonkehManwe: If you want flash to work, go with 32-bit, 64-bit may or may not work (last time I tried it just segfaulted silly). Otherwise there are few or no reasons to not go 64.
PeanutHorsti used RedHat-based or SlackWare-based
cruxeternusrullie: I agree that it's possible. I'm just saying its a marginal reason for switching to Gentoo, overall.
joriMit`, you just both the card or etleast never runned it before in that machine ? or did you ever get it to work ?
MonkehManwe: I'm not aware of any significant difference, but it depends on the program.
Mit`jori, ? i used to have a Compro DVB-T200 cpature card, it all worked fine apart from that card wasn't good with the weak tv signal I get here... so i changed it for a Hauppauge Nova-T
MonkehManwe: Some things could run significantly faster on x86_64, most little to no difference
PeanutHorstMandrake, FC3, FC4, Mandriva, FC5, SuSE 10.0, ZenWalk 4.0, openSuSE-factory (currently on my P4) <-- my history, sporadic instances of slackwares and bsds in there too
rulliecruxeternus, of course. =) switching to gentoo because it's faster is only true when we talk about load up time, cuz there's less to load
Cisienis there any program which will "ping" a udp port to see if it's up?
Mit`jori, the sound is onboard - i can't change it - but it works fine without the Nova-T in
PeanutHorstMit`: hardware interrupt conflict?
cruxeternusPeanutHorst: Well, now that you're aware of the situation, get started. :)
Mit`PeanutHorst, I'm not sure - have a look at the dmesg outputs - http://tim.igoe.me.uk/files/tv.txt and http://tim.igoe.me.uk/files/notv.txt
dopplethis sucks
ManweMonkeh: okay, i see. well, i think i'll go on my x86, because i used to watch a lot of youtube's movies.
MonkehManwe: More likely to get stable (ish) flash that way, yeah. Good luck :)
joriMit`, try a old sound card if you have any and disable this 1 in the bios if posibel
MonkehManwe: Don't be surprised at crappy flash performance and stability though
Mit`jori, I can't - its a media PC, so i don't have case space for 2 PCI cards
PeanutHorstcruxeternus: wait till i find the stage3 cd and a spare CD-RW
ManweMonkeh: thank you. ;)
Mit`i'm stuck with the onboard sound
PeanutHorstand a floppy disk to put some sort of bootstrap on
this thing doesn't boot from CDs
