    RE: N64 emulaters
    Peterson, I don't think anyone is hating. It's good to hear that you've come to trust the linux community for intelligent answers to questions but that doesn't mean there are people with vast knowledge of Windows N64 emulators lurking on Linux only forums. That being said, what is your specific problem? I know you said you've tried several different programs, but I have no idea what they are or what games or what errors or issues you're having from your post, that makes it difficult to help. Taking a random stab at helping you out: I know several people have used [url=http://code.google.com/p/mupen64plus/]Mupen[/url] to various degrees of success on both Linux and Windows, so that might be a place to look if you haven't yet. -MM

    RE: Help for noobie please
    Sonns, If you're using Wine right now you've already discovered the best way to play windows games on Linux. If you're curious as to what has been confirmed to work and what hasn't check out the wine appdb:[url=http://appdb.winehq.org/]http://appdb.winehq.org/[/url]. Aside from ratings that will let you know whether something works or not there are also usually helpful configuration tweaks and howtos on the individual game pages. Past that you might want to look into simply running a windows VM if your system can handle it. Wine does a great job but 100% compatibility with every game is not something you're going to get. -MM

    RE: How to modify /etc/services?
    Semantics semantics Marc :P But yes that could differ, someone would have to let us know what distro they were using before we could help further though :P -MM

    RE: How to modify /etc/services?
    tommy, You would edit it manually with a text editor such as vim, nano, emacs, kate etc. Like many other aspects of UNIX-like systems Wikipedia has a decent quick reference page on /etc/services (inetd): [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inetd]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inetd[/url] -MM

    RE: Alliance CAD tool problem with opening file
    naserco, I'm having a hard time finding any documentation on Alliance to reference for you, so I'll try some general advice. Have you attempted to use a full path for the file name just to make sure that it can't be a pathing issue? IE: [code]asimut -b -c /home/naserco/cadfiles/mux[/code] Hopefully someone with more knowledge of the software will stumble across this topic but please do tell me if anything comes of that and I'll do my best to get you up and running. -MM

    RE: Screen goes to sleep before install
    Great Ape, I did a quick search on this for you ( future reference: "site:ubuntuforums.org monitor power save mode boot from cd" in google ). It seems other people are having this issue. This thread contains some insight: [url=http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1463294&page=2]http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1463294&page=2[/url] I would go tinker with a few of those solutions and see what you can come up with. If that doesn't resolve the issue, please come back and post what you've tried and as much other info as you can about your setup and I'll do what I can to help you further. -MM
