  New topic proposal - Linux 
 Date Written

As I take my first faltering steps into LINUX I'd like to suggest LINUX as a new main topic. It seems to be increasingly popular and personally I'd find it benifical to have all LINUX issues in one place for quick reference.

Although there are many other Linux forums about, I think it has a place in Hardware Analysis and it would be benifical for uses and for those considering LINUX as an option.

What does everyone else think?

Yeah, great idea! I'm installing Red Hat 9 in the next week and I'm sure it won't be trouble-free. It'd be great to have HWA to fall back on.

I like this idea too. Please create a forum called "Linux" or something along the lines of Alternative OS's. It will be appreciated.

It is said that when it comes to life, those who feel see it as a tragedy. Those who think see it as a comedy.

After 2 days I now how the following running under Linux

Nvidia Nforce2 Lan
ITE Raid
Ti4200 with Nvidia drivers
Deskjest 5552
Nvidia onboard sound

This has all been very hard work.... I'm begining to think XP is the easy way out. Now everything seems to run ok, I'll have to see what the included apps do. I'm dreading trying out my DVD writer.

Just an interesting idea that I had to post.

Personally, Linux is in my targets, I just havn't committed myself to installing it.

I have a few copies of linux, but I have yet to find any articles on how to set this OS up. What do you guyz think about setting up a Linux installation party or something of that nature and writing a public FAQ to post on hardware analysis?

It's good to see so much enthusiasm toward alternatives to Windows. Personally I've been in love with Linux for about a year now and I'm glad more people are trying it out. Linux is great, but the best thing you can do is TRY it first. Download Knoppix or Morphix to give Linux a spin without actually installing it. Mandrake has all the A7N8X series drivers built in, so you should try it after Knoppix. Please remember, BSDers are people too! Have a BSD section if you make a Linux one! No Mac though, until it's ported to X86 (any time now...).

Done :)

As someone who has been running Linux since 486 days I can only suggest that everyone should try either RedHat 9 or Fedora 1 freshly installed on a recent PC. It may not be the best multimedia or gaming environment but definately makes for a very powerful workstation.

I noticed a mention of Mandrake having support for A7N8X boards.. yet when I installed, it didn't notice everything right off.. for me RedHat did the job of seeing all of the equipment.

..Come to think of it.. I think only the 3Com was active. Oh well. :)

ASUS A7N8X Deluxe PCB 2.00 w/ BIOS 1005 (cause? Dunno.. ATM)
AMD XP 2800+ @ 0.0 GHz 0MHz FSB (overheating for no appearent reason)
(2) - Corsair XMS512-3500C2 (5-2-2-2T) @ 0MHz
ATI Radeon 9700 Pro @0
Enermax 500W p/s (ok.
