One step at a time. Personally..I am thinking of finding out; I am thinking of the distro "video linux". In my house I have linux manchine and window machine; one of the grandson likes the linux machine and the other preferred MS. My suggetion is to try it but one step at a time (like surfing and/or maybe office productivity). Have fun.
Hi all. I'm planning on dual booting XP and Gutsy Gibbon. I just have a few questions to ask. One is will my Bluetooth Adapter (Broadcom 2045/BCM2045) work natively from the liveCD or do I need to install some drivers to get it working (Links please thanks). Also, what is a good stack like WIDCOMMs but for Gutsy 64 which works very simplistic and gets the job done?
I know and have googled excessively for X-Fi Linux Support and the only thing is from Creative's "opensource" site which has beta drivers for 64 bit os only, have any of you had any luck with this or is there something better in the Synaptics package manager?
Lastly for drivers, I'm unsure how to install the nvidia drivers.run file, really confusing. I'm not at all good with sudo but I barely know what some commands are. Are there any nvidia packages for my 7600GT for hardware acceleration and Linux Games (Me likee).
Now for software...
What are some good alternatives for the following apps:
Nero (Like many burning options and not coastering at all)
PowerISO for Emulation
ffdshow (maybe a package similar in Synaptic?
KMPlayer (hardware accelerated video playback is nice)
Winamp also for iPod syncing (how would pics and videos be done btw for newer gens?
...and lastly a GBA Emulator as good as VisualBoy (I rip my games to play since my SP went dead a long time ago)
DS would also be nice but not needed.
Sorry for sounding like a n00b but all you terminal and sudo h@x0r$ need to help me out. Thanks
