    RE: Slackware
    This thread has reinspired me to get back some Slack. I will do that tonight on my laptop. I am thinking Slackware 13, Kernel 2.6.31-rc6, LVMs with Btrfs v0.19... Mmm, mmm, mmm.

    RE: ati-catalyst 9.6 on kernel 2.6.30(x86) Crash!!
    I should add; FGLRX and 2.6.30 do not work together... at least the last time I tried. However, I think ATI supports the 2.6.29 kernel series.

    Here is another great howto for builing an rpm kernel. It is the way that I do it. http://linuxdork.org/var/archives/15-kernelstduserrpm

    RE: More software for Enterprise Linux - the EPEL repo

    RE: Linux Desktop Wishlist
    Only thing I wish... To the developers; keep up the good work. :) Ok, perhaps I have another... Seeing Linux break into the Enterprise workstation area would be great. The problem is that many enterprise level businesses are so deeply in bed with some of those evel software companies that they get scared to take a leap in good direction (even in the server area). Here is hoping... they keep on keeping on and waking up....

    RE: RHEL or CentOS?
    In my opinion it all comes down to vendor support and TCO requirements.

    RE: Trying to install..
    Your Ubuntu disc is bad or your CD drive is... Lets assume that its the disc as that is more likely the case. Firstly, I want to inform you that you may rest assured; Ubuntu will install over your "messed up Windows". Secondly, you need to get a new install disc; one way would be to download and burn it at a friends house (good to burn at a slow speed (I always use half of the burners maximum)). Also, you can request a free install CD from the Ubuntu website. Hope this helps. :)

    RE: RHEL AS 3 Kernal booting error
    Did you read the syslog and dmesg output? Either way; as per that error message you need to do that as well as check the modules.conf and modinfo to see what parameters can be are and can be used.
