|Let me be the 1st to say......Linux may kick ass, and I'm all for geek love, but corrupt image files SUCK ASS!! :)|
For reasons only understood by me...and my inner geek, I had steeled myself to finally take the plunge. I was my friends.....going Linux! Granted I've tried this before, dipped my toes in the puddle......but damnit....I'm ready for the wading pool now!
The Zig house is kinda a complicated place, rarely a time when there is fewer than 3-4 PC's running at once. Most have been migrated to Win/XP, because it mostly works,,,,and I'm a pussy, but for this endeavor, I chose my baby...my Win98se box.
After tinkering with a few live cd's....I finally settled on Ubuntu. The cd booted and saw all my relevant hardware....self knackered the home network, I could surf the net, play music, view my digital pics......all was good......then I chose to install. (insert scary music here)
Win98se box is a good box. We've been buddies for years now. She's got the hardware, she has the guts, she has all a good pc needs....except it seems, an affection for Ubuntu!! :)
Several repartitions later......and reinstall of 98se, and then a couple more repartitions...I still have no native Linux on this machine.........I'm rather pissy about this.
On a lighter note, the kids are still cleaning the living room........largely under duress, it's amazing what a combinatin of kindness....threats, and bribery will accomplish...:)
Happy sunday goofs and friends!!
