benn92649yeah Trelard I took a while for my to get working but afte rthat it seemed to work I think if you have kapersky or a firewall maybe it does something
WhitePandafine only cuz it took me damn near a week to install video drivers
eilkerit depends on your graph. card, but most probably xgl

arideseWhitepanda: great! learn C/C++
Trelardbenn92649: thanks
benn92649there is nothing left sacred you can tweak everything in it and it loads 50X times faster than windows uses about a 1/5 of the disk space and about a 1/10th of the CPU to run it under full load
nexousAnyone know how to install PCF Fonts?
arideseWhitepanda: linux isn't mature enough for most hardware configratuions, maybe in a couple of years
CodeBansheebenn92649: software like anti-virus and firewalls doesn't load if you're not booting from your hard disk
sdrevheh, me either, i'm trying to use aiglx and compiz, as soon as i start up compiz i just get logged out
WhitePandaworst case scenario is a complete reinstall
arideseWhitepanda: worst case scenario is you're stuck with a broken linux install
WhitePandaok whats a new harddrive cost
arideseWhitepanda: around 50-70
benn92649but I have yet to try and install any windows type stuff

kelsinkevCast: you can download them from sites like gnome-look.org then drag them into the "Perferences->Themes" window to install them, then use that window to change them
archvillebut i'm not sure it will work, so try it before with a few files
benn92649ok now Who wants to be my savior and help me to do a flawless victory on Wine install :-D
