  • Ugh.....

    I just upgraded my computer again. This time it is to Red Hat Linux 9.0...

    Anyways, I forgot to back up my Mozilla Firebird profile because it is hidden by default. Because of that I lost all of my bookmarks. Going to be doing a lot of searching trying to rebuild them now.

            I bought one XP license for my wife. But, I use Linux exclusively. I have for a long time now.

              It is good... Much nicer than Red Hat 8.0 which I was using previously. Almost recognized all my hardware "out-of-the-box".. Only had to compile a driver for my network card.

              We have two XP licenses in the house right now. Will most likely keep at least one Windows PC for games for the forseeable future.

                Im using Mandrake on almost everything now. It even saw and configured my wireless network card on install on my laptop.

                  Mandrake had problems with my graphics chip (Gefore 4 MX) and the board chipset (NVIDIA nforce 2). Tried both 9 and 9.1 and neither could get into xwindows no matter what I did. So since I had a DVD with Red Hat 8.0 on it, I installed that. Had to compile drivers for the video chip, general chipset support, network and sound with that version.

                  Last night, I downloaded the ISO's for Redhat 9 and installed that today. Been thinking of trying Suse on my next machine. Not sure if it is worth the $40.00 when I already have Redhat though.

                    Suse is pretty nice, a little bloated here and there. However, pretty soon Im going to try Gentoo on one of my boxes and see what the fuss is all about.

                      I'm amazed that anyone is running Redhat 9.0 as there is no such thing - it's Redhat 9, no more .0 releases from Redhat

                      Redhat 9 is really just Redhat 8.1 with the bug fixes

                      One thing we have noticed is that Redhat 9 gives 1.5 times the performance of Redhat 7 on identical hardware. The other nice thing is that the system is still reponsive even when you have a load average of over 100 (as we do during load testing).

                      It's all good

                        The .0 is habit more than anything else.

                        The no more point release theory is just to make Redhat look better than other Retail Distributions. People will think that since it is on version 25 and Mandrake or Suse are only on 9.7.5, that Redhat is better.

                          yeah fair point - although 9 isn't like any .0 release I have ever seen - it is pretty much bug free as it's 8.1 under the hood

                          I can't deal with Mandrake anymore . . .
