Quick linux install ? - Page 2

post #11 of 40
If you're going linux it isn't fanboyism - it's straight up intelligence

Even though it is entirely possible to run linux w/beryl on ATi I urge people not to. If the vast majority of the linux community uses nvidia that gives ati much more incentive to be more linux friendly. It's a growing community that the (currently) foundering ATI/AMD really doesn't cater to at all. They do what they can to lose that market share :\\

This is a Wikipedia explanation of Beryl and Kiba-Dock is a docking program similiar to that of Mac OSX (just to give you an idea of what it is).

I think it should be the other way around. There is no real money to be made on the open source community directly, so the big guys could care less if we use their cards or not. Why do you think nvidia is so popular in the Linux world? They gambled (initially) and once they saw the widespread acceptance of their cards the support followed. Very few Linux folk use ATI cards, and the ones that do only ***** and whine, and send threatening letters to AMD (I have read them) to "fix it or I buy nvidia", so AMD has little incentive to provide other than the minimal support. If more people started using them, then it would be a different story.
The way I see it, you can either use Linux and have a good time doing it, or you can attempt to improve it. There are more than a few daring folk out there that are constantly trying to improve the hardware compatibility of Linux. I have met people that use "blacklisted" hardware and constantly break their heads trying to make things work. These same people throw out petitions to hardware manufactures to let them know that "Hey, we Linux guys are using your stuff and want better support".

Edit: Developments such as Dell including Linux on their PCs are good on so many levels, since if successful, will urge hardware developers to increase their Linux support.

Max, I think when using Nero you're supposed to "Burn Image to Disk" when burning the ISO. . . I can't remember though, I alway use Infra Recorder, well, ever since Ubuntu's guide suggested it ^_^ lol.

Thread Starter 
Well figured I would just post here instead of starting a new thread. So I finally got my disk burned correctly and started the install or tried to anyways. This is on my quadgt/6400/crucial all watercooled, some hdd's and dvd rw. So I boot from the disk and it goes to ubuntu and loads up from the disk and then you have the option to play around in there or install.

So I pick install and pick language and time all that stuff then it comes to the partition manager and starts out but it doesnt seem to recognize any of my hdd's, I tried a couple of them raptor/wd250/maxtar , the partition options screen is ther ebut theres no hdd to choose from .

I know the mobo finds the hdd because it tries too boot from a old install of linux I had that was on a am2 system.

Any ideas. Thanks

This seems like a common problem here on this site, people with pretty new systems (C2D) are not having the hard drive reconized. mariogreymist is having the same issue it seems, and Tippen Out had the same issue (or similar). I believe Tippen got it to work, if so, hopefully he has some advice then.

does 'ls /dev | grep sd' give you anything?
