Linux Problems? I might be able to help.
If anyone needs any Linux help, I'm yer guy. I don't claim to be an expert, mind you, but I have extensive experience running Linux (specifically Red Hat and Fedora Core) and I'm willing to help as best I can.

I may take you up on that at some point, I've got a 50gb partition that's been waiting for me to drop Linux on it for a while. I've used various distros off and on over the years but it always falls by the wayside eventually.

I'd be glad to help! Did you have a distro in mind?

Slartibartfast 10-25-2006 01:26 PM

Not sure, was leaning towards Fedora (used redhat in the past) or maybe Ubuntu, as that seems to be the latest distro of the month. Ran gentoo for a while on a dual celly 366, but I sold that board. I've been meaning to do some research since I can get a massive discount on O'Reilly press stuff, including No Starch, so I thought I would look for a book that came with a distro and work from that.

Whatever I go with, I'll need a 64 bit kernel ;)

Well, I'm pretty biased towards Fedora Core/Red Hat myself. That's where most of my experience lies. Start a torrent for the 64 bit dvd iso now. I d/led the 32 bit last night. took forever cuz the servers were getting HAMMERED.

for some 64bit info and caveats: <-- really good stuff <-- for FC5, but a good read nonetheless

I downloaded the 64 bit Fedora DVD ISO a few months back, still sitting on my hd. Should probably get a newer one...

I had a problem getting software raid to mount on reboot but a friend helped. None of the howto mentioned this magical line:

dpkg-reconfigure linux-image-`uname -r`

fyi for those who care - I was able to get linux up and running wthout issue on a p965 board (asus p5b-e). Well one issue the on board lan is not yet supported. I think 2.6.19 will support it (not 100% sure - saw indication a patch was submitted but couldn't find it being accepted in the kernel change log). I'm running 2.6.17-10. Fyi if you have a tv tuner you will want or newer.

I'll be the token slackware guy.

Why torrent the ISOs? I always download Debian or Ubuntu ISOs straight from the mirrors. Heh, sorry didn't realize the bot above me spammed this ancient thread. Feel free to delete my post.
