    RE: Wanting to make a Linux Based Desktop
    I'm currently running Debian 7.3, if your new to linux Ubuntu would be the best route to start with though. If not, I recommend Debian 7.3 (wheezy)

    I currently have steam running great on Debian 7.3 (Wheezy), to be honest it's running better then it did on Ubuntu, however was a bit more complicated to setup.

    Also, you can literally drag and drop any .deb file onto the Ubuntu software center to use that to install it easily for you. I do the same in Debian.

    Steam runs natively on Ubuntu 12.04 and is your best option as far as games. If you plan on using wine I recommend www.PlayOnLinux.org and using their version of wine as well as installers, for the most part they just work (or don't). Let me know if you make some progress.

    Enabling Multi-Arch in Debian 7.3 [SOLVED]
    I've looked at the guides and I simply don't understand what to do. I recently switched to Debian from Ubuntu for more stability and now I am in the process of changing debian to fit the parts of ubuntu that I liked however until I get this multi arch thing figured out I'm not able to do that. Was hoping for a step by step on how to do this, which I wasn't able to get out of the wiki. Thanks for the help! SOLUTION: in the terminal run: sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 then sudo apt-get update

    Question, HP Z600 server workstation Crossfire X Ubuntu 12.04 64bit
    Hey everyone, currently I've switched to a HP Z600 server workstation Crossfire X Ubuntu 12.04 64bit with two Xeon intel processors 2.8 GHz quad core. As such I felt it needed to link my two graphics cards together via crossfire which I have not done before. I have a radeon hd 6770 and a hd 4850. Their connected but I can't seem to find a amd program that regulates or controls the two. Catalyst control ceneter just acknowledges the two, claiming one is disabled, why? Any ideas? I'm new to this but have had diffuclty finding out info via bing or google. Plus I havn't post here in a while, but with Steam being so Ubuntu friendly I've been able to finally make Ubuntu my primary OS. All help is welcomed thank you =)

    Steam for Ubuntu
    So I run Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, downloaded steam recently (it had some issues when it was new, at-least for me it did. Not only does it work great but some great titles have been made to work natively with Linux(Ubuntu specifically). Paradox has some good games, I bought one and it runs great (Crusader Kings 2 by Paradox). Left 4 Dead 2, Counter-Strike etc... I highly recommend checking it out if you haven’t in a while.
