Linux,,,now what

Recommended Posts

OK, got the full Suse Linux 7.2 on an extra computer,,

its goddamed confusin if your used to Window$

 

just like Redhat3 i couldnt figure out how to shutdown

if i logout i goes back to the login

in redhat u coulnt get the gui working on a 166mhz/64mb/1.9GB

but was able to get the gui working in Suse on 73mhz/128mb/15GB

in redhat ctrl/alt/del shuts down all the processes after logout but it would just go to rebooting....

in suse you can logout but it goes to the graphic login screen,

ctrl/alt/del just starts the reboot, if i turn it off it forces this linux verison

of the scandisk, i forgot what its called exactly but it runs thru the drive with a % progress....

 

anybody know how and where to configure the firewall in linux??

 

any suggestions or ideas from linux geeks?

thats just how unix based systems work, if you login as say root or whatever and get to the prompt youre in the basic command line shell before you load up the pretty looking window manager.

 

i havent fucked with that shit in years (i ran slack with the 2.0.30 kernal heh...redhat 5.2...etc)...so im a little rusty.

Search for some ebooks on basic linux use. O'reilly publishes some good ones. That's the only good way to learn Linux. As far as the firewall is concerned. IPChains is a good one that I can think of off the top of my head.

lindows is on the market?

i thought ms was holding it up in court.

how is it kilo? i was rather interested in it once i heard about it.

 

i hear you can get a new lindows based system for like 1/3 the cost of a windows based system.

Whoa. Linux is crazy. I tired to work with it once and I just couldn’t get it. I’m so conditioned to work with widows its ridiculous. Although I do hear that linux is easier to use. It’s just different from what we are used to.

actually the reason people use linux is because it's a lot more stable than windows (which is the reason osx is based on a linux kernal).

my boy can play mp3s, chat on aim and irc and surf on a p133 that he got for 25 bucks (with a monitor) because he does it through linux command lines (it'd crash w/ xwin).

it's sad when you get linux, install it on a "box," and never use it, just showing it off to your irc friends for bragging rights .

thanks,,it does seem to be more trouble than its worth,

its not a problem having a KVM switch, Hi Speed, a main server and Router...

as for the 'BOX' its a perfectly good 800mhz computer someone decided to throw away,,,if you live in nyc too many people throw out perfectly good computers..computers and TV's are always sitting out at the curb

i got a drawer full of simms,dimms, CPU's, and a stack of HD's with win3, 95,98, xp, unix, and dos,,all working and full of dumb hack novels, poetry and stoopid jpg's...

this weekend i actually got one of these running DOS for $3 at a stoop sale
