These links are useful, and will be good to have around - thanks! Before fiddling with the MBR or any Boot-Partitions, however, I still think you should start off by checking your BIOS, most modern BIOS's should be able to handle this issue. Second alternative, I think is to boot the Live Disk with ...

Hi, The problem you have is with the BIOS, it enumerates (counts) resources in a specific order which always puts the IDE channels first. This is independent of the Slave/Master configuration and also independent of the Boot-Order. I have no experience from actual SCSI devices, but you can have trou...

I thought it was time I would test the waters with HP and see where they stood with the whole idea of preinstalled linux on thier desktops or workable solutions so I initiated a series of emails with thier customer support team. Here they are I agree with almost all that has been said, but do anyon...

Comment on Loop1

Hi, all. There have not been a lot of issues for me. Everything was much as expected, but I had hoped the RAID (dmraid) issue had been solved with the new kernel and all. I have two machines with an existing BIOS supported RAID set - one nvidia and one SiS. What strikes me is that we have a bootopti...

Hi, I don't think I have an answer but K3B does give a message at the first start that it needs to have parts running as 'root'. It seems strange, since I know that my optical drives are PATA. This is normal for burner devices, Windows does the same thing. I remember the first burners, they were rea...

Something to do while waiting. . .

I guess we need something to do while waiting. My 32bit torrent is completing in a few minutes (apprx 2.10, total) and the 64bit has been running for ½h and has 1h30 remaining. Upload speed, I am pleased to say, is flexing between 500 - 900 KB in average. So, yesterday I tried to emerge Scribus, so...

I hadn't really thought Ubuntu and Fedora would count as bases for a fork, since they are themselves derived. Gentoo is source based and I do believe that forking away from Gentoo would require a new base architecture to also be source based (not, perhaps for technical reasons, but certainly for sen...

Thanks for that quote! This made my day. We've seen this before - it takes two to Tango. I believe what is of the highest interest to this community, is to work for the preservation and development of the foundation that SL rests upon. I'm not taking sides, and I think it is probably wiser for those...

This requirement might be a good excuse for setting up a dual-boot system? Have PartImg on both and you can have it do an Image on the other at any time? Plus, having the opportunity to make Installation tests and system restore operations when something goes wrong! On the other hand, you can instal...
