Have you considered a HP Microserver you can buy these for less then £200 pounds and they sometimes come with cash back offers, i currently has the hp nl36 & nl40 and use them on a daily basis for storage & media playback ..
forgot to add i use # on one and # & win7 on the other..
hi guys, I been using crunchbang for a while now--maybe like a year?--and I absolutely love it. And I especially love how supportive you guys are. I have been to other hacker forums and you couldn't believe the amount of mudslinging and insults they hurl at each other. you'd think it was a bunch of monkeys in a jungle fighting over bananas.
I know there are probably very few girls who use linux, but I am not your typcial american female. For one thing, I am not american; I work on wall street; I have a ba from an ivy league school; and I am fluent in Python and Java!
"sexy and smart" , just like sugar and spice...but looking twice as nice.
need to change your thread title if you've got probs booting into windows (primarily)
have a gander here?
easy bcd seems to be useful.
you can only mount as root, maybe set the type =
sudo mount -t ntfs /dev/sda2 /media/windows.
i stand corrected.. :-P
Thanks for the effort.
I had tried this one before, hence the use of an older driver. Retried it anyways just to give it a go, but still not working.
Not surprised, by the way.
I have a popup telling me : "Your graphics adapter is not supported by this driver. Installation will not proceed."
I can, however, "Generate Distribution Specific Driver Package", but this is way out of my league.
I'll keep inverstigating, thanx again!
might seem a silly question but do you have the linux headers for your running kernel? i'm running the latest amd-beta drivers on my hp-microserver with no problems
but from what I can gather up to now the open source freedom is very exciting :-)
just had to quote your line , yups open source very exciting.. and full of frustration & immense enjoyment when thing get fixed and work as you wish. enjoy yourself with the experience and dont get to disappointed if things dont work, there are a lot of folks here who would be willing to help you out i'm sure.
I use crunchbang because
#1 - Debian based (Secure and stable)
#2 - Fast and comes with the snappy Openbox Window Manager
#3 - It will run on almost anything and is great for netbooks
#4 - Has a great community for solving problems
#5 - It's cool and provides a modern yet minimalistic desktop experience
i have to agree its a dream to use..
It's a MSI X79A-GD45 (8D) and an Intel 3820. I didn't really care about getting a socket 2011 but I just got the motherboard because it has a better NIC in it, an Intel one. My old Realtek 8111/8168 was acting up in Linux and I just got sick of it and sold it.
oooo thats a sweet mobo + processor for sure.. (just been looking over the mobo specs)
