I'd just like to share my joy in fixing my first 2 linux problems!

Problem 1: Ethernet initialization failed.

Problem 2: Sound device not supported.

Fix: I swapped in an extension card ethernet, extension PCI sound card, as well as a new video card which (now that I have internet on linux) I can download new video drivers for better 3D support! Yahoo!

I am on linux as I type!

Enjoy linux. I have a dual boot running Mandrake, I cant wait to learn everything I need to know about Linux, so I dont use Windows as much.

Guys! This is sooooo cool! My new OS couldn't detect parts of my motherboard. What a rad program!

Leeman - you should just make a "Leeman's Linux thread" and quit making new ones every 6 hours.

gcc for C
g++ for C++

I think they come with any distro of linux.

You should have emacs and vi as editors. Both are good, I use emacs, it has synax highlighting.

I'll have to wait and see until I finish re-installing :(

I tried to get 3d acceleration for my 3d rage pro card and somehow deleted modules needed to start x server. now the module is gone, can't start x server, so....that sucks

Really, never knew that.

I havent really used it much, so I wouldnt really be able to compare. Are all of the commands, shortcut keys?

my friend is try to partition his drive to have linux and windows, but he can't seem to figure it out. he'll probably be showing up on here sometime for help. Is Linux easy to learn (is it anything like c++)?

They're too completely different things...

And it depends on what he wants to do...if he just wants a decent-looking GUI with some programs, no sound, no internet, no printer support, no anything else support...then Linux shouldn't be hard at all to learn :)

Otherwise he'll become quite good with man pages and the -h switch.

Ohh common, re-installing because X didn't start?
Configure it again by yourself, edit the /etc/X11/x86config file or just type as root: xf86config, and answer right to the questions.
