    So this is kind of amusing.

    People are always bitching that vista is such a resource hog.. then i see how poorly compiz runs for me compared to the vista desktop stuff :)

    Well, with Linux, you can cut all that shit out and use Fluxbox if you want. :p

    Compiz ran like butter on my laptop with 1.4ghz celeron and integrated graphics until the motherboard went kaput. Vista classified my laptop as "street scum" at the time.

    Vista runs smooth for me on this laptop

    2GHz dual core, 2GB of ram and nvidia quadro NVS135M I think

    Compiz is.. now turned off :) I'm still loving this swtich to linux, I've wasted half my week at work just customizing stuff.

    Now to find a good linux alternative to objectdock

    Argh, So I downloaded the Kubuntu 7.10 alt install CD and that doesn't work either. Takes me to a blue screen with a mouse cursor and no further. I guess it just wasn't meant to be. :(

    Try using a regular Ubuntu disc, and then if you can get it installed, sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop

    I'm thinking of installing Ubuntu on this laptop as it isn't the fastest thing around but I'm such a bleeding edge whore that I want to install to 8.04 Alpha 5 which was just released, so I'm wondering how stable/non-buggy this build is?

    The reason I'm even remotely considering it is that I've tried a ton of alpha/beta versions of Ubuntu in the past and I more or less never had problems with them.

    Try the latest alpha version, the newest kernel has lots of fixes.

    I've been wanting to try Linux for a while now, and just found out that my C+ class assignments are going to require a unix environment, so rather than using VMware or something, I figure I'll take the plunge. I have two hard drives, one 20GB IDE and one 200GB SATA. I'm thinking maybe I'll just dual boot Ubuntu and Windows on the SATA and save the IDE for a backup. My big question is: is there a way to make certain files accessible across both OS's? I like to listen to music whenever I'm using my PC, but I'd rather not have a duplicate of ~20GB of mp3's on each partition.

    Also, how much space should I be allowing for Ubuntu? I'll only really be using big applications (mostly games) on Windows, and I can't really imagine most of the basic utilities I'll use on Linux being very big.

    Linux/Ubuntu can mount and read/write NTFS. Also you can install an EXT2 driver for Windows, which will allow it to mount EXT3 partitions (just without journaling).

    So, I'm trying to install Kubuntu 7.10 and its not going well. I've installed Kubuntu before but it was dapper drake and it went fine. This time I want to try gusty and its not going so well. I'll explain:

    I downloaded the 7.10 x86 Live DVD. I boot from said DVD and get a list of options. If I try either the "Start or Install Kubuntu" or the "Start or Install Kubuntu in safe graphics mode" I get taken to a loading screen that sits there for a long time (10 minutes or so) before going to a black screen with a blinking cursor and nothing happens, ever.. I just have to reboot. I've also tried the "install in text mode" or what ever and that goes well until it gets to the "Select and Install Software" step in which it gets to 6% and errors out. No specific error, just says that it has failed.

    So My question is, does anyone know of any boot options that I might be able to try in order to get this live cd to start properly?

    System Specs:
    Nforce4 based mobo
    Nvidia 7800GT
    2gigs RAM
    4000+ AMD64

    Should be x86_64 for this CPU type.

    No 32bit can run on an AMD64 just fine as I've run 32bit Dapper Drake on this fine (not to mention 32bit XP and Vista). I tried the Hardy distro and it installed just fine, wifi even worked "out of the box"

    I'm running a 32 bit version of Ubuntu on my AMD64 bit machine.

    You'd be a fool to do otherwise, as the number of apps maintained in 64 bit repositories sucks. When I first installed Ubuntu the number of steps to get FLASH working in a browser for a 64 bit machine was in the double digits. Even now you just hack a 32 bit browser to run on a 64 bit machine.

    I'd advise avoiding the hassle. The 64 bit repositories are getting better, but they have surprises you wont encounter if you install a 32 bit kernel instead.

    trying 7.04 now

    Didja try ndiswrapper? It took me like three days to sort that shit out because Dell uses some crappy broadcom 43xx wireless mini-card. Disregard if you've already went back to 7.04

    Also yeah, getting certain things working in 64-bit Ubuntu reminded me of back in the days of DOS.

    Really, at this point Adobe Flash is the only problem, and that's because Adobe won't get off their lazy asses and make a 64-bit version of Flash Player.

    (and GNU Gnash, while impressive, is still in its early stages, unfortunately).

    Ah, my mistake. I've never even tried it, to be honest (installing the 32-bit OS on my AMD64, that is). For me everything worked out of the box except Flash, DVD playback and my scanner. The first two were easy to get going, but I have yet to get the scanner working. In the 9 years I've been using Linux, scanner support is the only thing I've ever had a problem with (sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, and there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to it).

    Well, good luck with your endeavor anyway.

    DVD playback never works out of the box because of stupid DMCA-related reasons. You need to find and download the libdvdcss2 package, and it's not in the repositories.

    If it were me, I would split the 20GB in half and install windows on one and linux on the other, and use the 200GB for media storage.

    That's what the Medibuntu repositories are for. They have libdvdcss2, plus non-free codecs and other fun stuff like Google Earth.

    If you do that, and don't want to bother with enabling write permissions later, format the 200GB as ext3 and install this in Windows. Then your Linux partitions will show up on My Computer in Windows too.

    That driver has always been buggy for me. Just format your shared drive as FAT32. Windows will read and write it; Linux will read and write it, you'll be fine.

    most distros now either support ntfs out of the box, or have ntfs 3g in their repositories. It's better to just format it as NTFS

    Seconding this. In my most recent repair/resinstall of Windows I wasn't given a choice to use FAT32, but can still read/write it perfectly.

    I can never seem to properly install Ubuntu/XP together, as whenever I pre-setup partitions on a drive, Ubuntu says it's can't do jack and then it wants to just format the entire drive.

    So, what would be the most beneficial/cleanest setup for the following situation: 2 drives, one IDE 250 GB and one SATA 300 GB. XP & Ubuntu, XP being the primary operating system for Word, XNA, Games, etc.

    Suggestions would be very very welcome.

    Somehow I've managed to utterly break my X server, seems like a font problem but I have no idea how to fix it, it won't even start in VESA mode. :(

    Log file: *snip*

    I don't know what distribution you're using, but you appear to be full of fail :P The first link I found on google by searching for the last two lines in your log gave me a probable solution, though one of the hints is a bit off.

    I compared your output to mine (I run Ubuntu), and my guess is that you screwed up the files section in xorg.conf. Here is what I have:
    Section "Files"
            Fontpath        "/usr/share/fonts/X11/misc"
            Fontpath        "/usr/share/fonts/X11/cyrillic"
            Fontpath        "/usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi/:unscaled"
            Fontpath        "/usr/share/fonts/X11/75dpi/:unscaled"
            Fontpath        "/usr/share/fonts/X11/Type1"
            Fontpath        "/usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi"
            Fontpath        "/usr/share/fonts/X11/75dpi"
            # path to defoma fonts
            Fontpath        "/var/lib/defoma/x-ttcidfont-conf.d/dirs/TrueType"
    EndSection
    

    The relevant part of the page I linked is:
    Somewhere (pretty much at the beginning of the log) there is a message:
    Could not init font path element unix/:7100, removing from list!
    

    This message tells that the Xserver is trying to contact a font server which appearantly isn't running. So you need to get your font server up and running before you start X. How this is done depends heavily on the OS and/or the distribution you use. Please contact your vendor support on how to do this!
    Please note: The use of the font server xfs is deprecated due to several bugs in it. It is recommended that the Xserver loads the fonts directly. To do so add at least the lines:

    That part in the code tags is above the message I searched for, and where my logs show:
    (**) FontPath set to:
            /usr/share/fonts/X11/misc,
            /usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi/:unscaled,
            /usr/share/fonts/X11/75dpi/:unscaled,
            /usr/share/fonts/X11/Type1,
            /usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi,

            /usr/share/fonts/X11/misc,

    Yours shows:

    You'd probably need to manually setup the partitions when you install linux. I've noticed that the defaults for the installs are usually to partition the largest available space regardless of what's on it. Just partition a good size space NTFS for your WinXP install and install windows first. Then install linux and when it gets to the part where it wants the partition information select manual and then setup your ext3 and swap partitions where ever and how ever you like.

    I'm sure someone with more experience will be able to give you better info as far as mount points and the like as I know some put the "/" mount point and "/home" on different partitions.

    Does glxgears crash, too?

    Was all of your xorg.conf created by nvidia-settings?

    You have a lot of options and the differences are mainly cosmetic. What you'll choose depends mostly on your personal taste and the way you usually manage your media(video, audio, games).
    First off, you may encounter a problem with the SATA drive recognition in Linux. If you do, google is your friend.

    What I would do with your setup is:

    Installing XP before Ubuntu & using included installers with both OS-es to partition.

    IDE: 10GB XP/20GB Linux/2GB swap/Rest of IDE drive NTFS.
    SATA: Any number of NTFS partitions you're comfortable with.

    I have to ask though, if you're planning to use XP for pretty much everything, why do you need Ubuntu at all?

    I would have to agree. The thing is, whichever OS you delegate as your primary will be the one you are in basically all of the time making the second OS relatively worthless. Unless you have a specific delineation (EG: Ubuntu for normal desktop use, XP for XP-necessary games) that you keep up with constantly you'll end up using one and not the other from now until forever, basically.

    In fact, better than dual booting I'd say is using two computers, for instance a laptop with Ubuntu and a desktop with XP. You can get the desktop souped up and use it for games and have your laptop always running with Ubuntu for your other tasks.... and you can link them up with Synergy so you can use the same keyboard and mouse and basically use them like one machine.... and then you can get up and walk away and keep IMing your friends. Badass.

    I just run linux full time and vmware with winxp for the 1 windows app I need (damn lack of a good quicken alternative in linux)

    I autostart xp in the background with vmware, and use 2x application server then run the linux client so i get a windows app or desktop published into linux.

    Horribly memory inefficient, but it works :)

    Because I plan on edging into Linux by slowly using it for everyday things like word-processing, etc. I would ideally like to transition to using it all the time for everything except pure windows-programs that do not run in Linux, WINE & vmware be damned.

    Thing is, I can type "wine gw.exe" and tada.... Guild Wars is running... on Linux... no reboots necessary. Pretty handy. Don't go damning things that are useful, especially in your stated goal of transitioning to Linux. :)

    Haha. The last time I tried to run steam through WINE it gave me errors. I'm sure I was doing something wrong, but being able to play my games without having to delve into the terminal is one aspect Linux does need help with.

    You should make sure to add the Wine repository and use the latest versions of Wine. Gutsy for instance only includes 0.9.46, and the current Wine version is 0.9.56... ten versions different.

    Even worse, there's only a version every two weeks, and there has been loads of dx related fixes the last two months.
