    RE: Please give me some advice
    Well i just switched over to linux from xp a few days back coz i needed to learn it a lil bit. Not being pretetious, id' say that it is quite a nice os. The one major difference i noticed was, my system is much more faster, i have an old p4.Also, it's much easier just plugging in your ipod, not like windows where it wants to restart. I started with fedora11 and also installed ubuntu later on. i like ubuntu better coz fedora's a lil bit more complex to handle( i may not be doing things the right way...), i was looking for mysql 5.1 installation and the x86 generic files did not install on fedora, im still finding how to do that. they installed at the first go in ubuntu. and you cannot login in fedora11 as root, You'd need to do things thru the shell. If something doesn't work well, its' quite a task for a newb. Plus one more thing i like about linux is that you have multiple desktops. And one added bonus is that my frnds and me do not have a computer science backgroud( we are biologists), i call them over and i spam something in the shell in front of em. Even tho im fumbling with the most basic commands, it looks cool to them coz' they cant make any sense out of it. :side: If you'r not a hardcore gamer or a windows lover, shifting to linux is fun and easy.

    [Resolved] Just started with linux, help please.
    Hello I am a student, just completed my graduation in biotechnology.Need to learn MySQL and familiarize myself with the linux platform, will need the skills in my masters in bioinfo. Had downloaded the live iso but when making an usb image from live-usb creator, i got this error: "Error: The SHA1 of your Live CD is invalid. You can run this program with the --noverify argument to bypass this verification check. fedora error" .I've started with the embedded download, but could someone please explain this error. Just started downloadin the Fedora11 live iso from the live-usb instead. Is it good enuf or rather simple enuf for a complete newb to use?(It does look awesome tho, microsoft needs to work harder.) I've been going through the basic tutorials on linux. I need to learn the command line and try them. Should i do this as the root user or should i create a new user? Thanks for your time. Pranav.
