A few people on here use linux so i thought - why not?

Post a screeny of your desktop (tidy or otherwise) what distro and window manager your using and the systems specs - if it isnt in your sig. Throw in what ever else you care to tell us about ur tuxbox.


Im installing Ubuntu with KDE as i type. Ill post mine in a couple mins.

I uninstalled when I got my new rig, but...
Was running Ubuntu on a 454mhz Pentium III coppermine, and a beastly 256MB SD RAM, with a nVidia Riva TNT 2 M64 card =)

As noted earlier, it's really not that hard to install.

A screenie from way back when I had gentoo + e17 and cedega too. I want to install gentoo again, it's just time-consuming. That's all. However, let it be known that if I have gotten anything of out linux, it's learning how it all works, with Gentoo. FreeBSD might be worth a dabble methinks. Time to learn why I didn't like it.

Fedora, don't even remember when I had that. As you can see, doom3 was installed.

To be edited: Was playing css (first time in months lol), brb with a ubuntu/gnome screenshot.

Woo..FC5 rocks! i got mp3 support working. Next task is to get it to mount my data partition - although I may just convert it to FAT32 and save the hassle.

Take a gander.

FC5 with Gnome and Darker Theme from Gnomelook.org
Standard Icon Set
Custom Desktop-ish

you just have to download the ntfs rpm for your kernel and then edit your fstab and mount it in terminal.

with ntfs you can read but not write though anyway which is a pain in the arse so I always have a FAT32 partition to shared files between
