Re: Dream Linux Hardware Comp?

Hi all! Well I've downloaded the live SL4 DVD which works perfectly, but I've been living in Sidux since (end of Nov) changing to an nVidia GTX280 GPU. A really major problem for me was dealing with the LVM partition that SL makes, no live CD (knoppix etc) could read it, as it was an unknown/corrupt...

Re: Blue-Ray support?

Hi BlueJayofEvil!
Thanks for the advice, even better to know the drive works well 8)
Maybe in the next release, with Blue-Ray drives becoming a commodity item, there'll be support then?

Thanks again :D

Re: Blue-Ray support?

Hi red.hell,
Don't mind not being able to watch Blue-Ray on my PC, just want to know if anyone's been able to burn data (backups).

Thanks :D

Blue-Ray support?

Hi all,
As part of my PC upgrade, I've upgraded from a DVD writer to 'LG GGW-H20L Super Multi Blu-Ray Writer & HD-ROM Reader inc Lightscribe Support'. A Blue-Ray single disc came with the unit, wondered whether any of you had any experience burning Blue-Ray in SL :?

Thanks :D

Re: Dream Linux Hardware Comp?

Hi red.hell!
Tried just that 'xdriver=vesa' & then I'm brought to a blank screen (no cursor). As I can't install SL, I'm installing Sidux (Ourea) right now. You can be sure I'll be coming back to SL when there's out-of-the-box box support for GTX 280's :D

Thanks,

Re: Dream Linux Hardware Comp?

Hi all, I'm writing this from fedora 10 KDE, as I just can't boot into SL :cry: I just don't know what to do next, don't like fedora 10 but at least I was able to boot into a GUI! I know there are cheat codes, just don't know when to apply them or at which stage. I just want my SL back, I've wasted ...

Re: Dream Linux Hardware Comp?

Hi red.hell!
How would you go about installing the latest nVidia drivers in cli onto the live DVD, I'm writing this from my wife's XP machine (she's gotta have something ultra-reliable) :?

Thanks.

Re: Dream Linux Hardware Comp?

Well I've got my nVidia GTX 280, now SL boots into a multi-coloured CLI asking me for my logon credentials :? Any ideas where to go from here :?:

Thanks!

Re: 64 bit Flash: On it's way

Just noticed that in Firefox, some websites are asking for 'application/x-shockwave-flash'. So re-emerged 'nspluginwrapper-1.1.4' & the Firefox 'missing plugin' message dissapeared :D

Re: 64 bit Flash: On it's way

Hi chcikpea! Have verified which version of netscape-flash I've got on my SL 3.5.1 64bit, because I didn't have to un-mask anything?
