a nice fresh install of redhat 9 later
Posted 25 July 2003 - 07:04 PM
533 mHz celeron
64 megs sd ram
30 gig hdd
10/100 dlink nic
integrated 8 meg video
integrated generic sound card
i've run accross a few problems, the first being that even after a bunch of tweaking the system still runs like an 80 year old with hip problems (no offence to the 80 year olds), and the second is that i will double click on an icon to get a program to run, and the cursor will turn into an hourglass for a few minutes, and then change back into a regular pointer and the program won't load, it just stops. should i try an older version of redhat? or is there some obvious thing to do that im missing?
aside from those problems, i have to say, the install was one of the easiest things i've ever done. point and click all the way. it was a real shock, after trying out debian. *shakes head while memories of kernel recompiles and vi editing swirl around*
