    RE: what distro for asus eee
    You could try using Mint, I'm using that on an Aspire One and it works great for that kind of usage. I also had some problems with Skype on this however, to do with receiving and sending audio, there are a couple of good posts that a quick google will point you in the right direction for to fix this though. Hope that helps

    RE: UK Linux & Unix developers/partners
    Hi Andrew, are you asking what specific skillsets are needed by the 3rd party, or how to identify whether they are the right party to choose? I guess it really depends on the exact nature of what you are asking of the 3rd party with regards to what skills they would need. Can you be more specific?

    RE: How to install OpenSuse 11.4 KDE iso through USB
    Hi, do you have internet access on the host box you are trying to do the installation on? It might be a good approach for you to try installing OpenSuSE over http from one of the OpenSuSE mirrors, you will need the Start-CD-image, but maybe you can get this to boot from USB as its only a minimal OS. If you think thats something you might want to try, I can post up some more resources on how to accomplish that. Hope that helps regards Matt

    RE: Surevys / Reviews for Server Versions of Linux
    Hi, I've found that most popular for Enterprise class seems to be RedHat EL, SuSE SLES, and depending on the requirements of the environment, certainly for cloud environments many people are hosting using Ubuntu,Debian or Amazon Linux. Also, I'm pretty sure you can pick up some stats on distrowatch.

    RE: Facing problem when logging in as "root"
    I agree with mfillpot, and you could verify if that is the issue by specifying the absolute path to the binary as root. If it works, then thats what the issue is. regards Matt

    RE: Minimal linux distro
    Sorry! missed the Virtual environment requirements there. DSL prob not suitable unless running something like UML.

    RE: Minimal linux distro
    Hi, you could take a look at DSL (Damn Small Linux). It has a really small footprint (50MB ) and runs on just about anything. take a look here:http://www.damnsmalllinux.org. It can be run as a LiveCD or installed and run on Physical or Virtual hardware: I've run it successfully on Qemu, VMware Fusion, and LiveCD, all of these were great and reasonable fast. Hope that helps Matt

    RE: Full text search engines
    Hi atreyu, have you checked out SoLR?? I've had a brief play with it and its pretty quick/powerful. Some pretty big sites use it behind the scenes too. - They've got a list of named users available and case studies. Its got some cool features, caching (pretty important if speed is an issue), replication(awesome), distributed search, and it comes with a good suite of APIs for use with database integration. http://lucene.apache.org/solr/

    RE: imac power pc g3
    Hi, I agree with mfillpot would be better to source a replacement cd drive from ebay, unless thats not an option for you? not too sure on PPC G3 arch and if it supports Target disk mode but if it does... If you have another mac, you could try starting the broken one in target disk mode so that it appears on the desktop of the 'other' mac. If your using OSX you could then use something like 'dd' and install the OS as an image (SuSE have suse studio which allows you to create your OS online and then download the HD image to push to a disk device. Hope that helps.
