    not daunting. Redhat or suse are just as "easy" to install as windows.

    Sorry to hijack the thread but since we are on Suse 10, I have a question to ask regarding to Wifi.
    Yast did see my USB wifi adapter for network (Askey ~ Airlink+ WLL013 cheap a$$ Fry Electronic brand)
    Under kinternet, it shows wifi is disable regardless whether I put in network info or DHCP.
    How can I get it to work the easy way? I read/search on linux and wifi but this seem to be way behind the windows world.
    I just hate to go thru niswrapper or similar thing that I have done years ago with U.S. Robotic modem (setserial .......... thinggy).
    I also try Fedora core4, but Suse 10 seem to be much better. Novell seem to made something right with Suse IMHO.

    Do you have a essid set up on your wlan? Do you have encryption?

    go to a shell and type iwconfig wlan0 (or what ever your wireless shows up as) and see if you are getting a signal to it.

    I tried iwconfig which list all network adapters on my system, but the one for the usb didn't in the list (only loopback, 3Com and sit0?).

    Well, I think I have to do the hardway if I want Wifi or the old way to run cable. Either way, I still hate it.

    I went and bought a linksys USB wireless G USB card (WG54USB). This works just fine with ndiswrapper.

    I think most distros have a package for ndiswrapper, just install the package and run the ndiswrapper commands.

    Debian handles ndiswrapper really nice
    "# apt-get install ndiswrapper"

    All of your modules are installed and all you have to do is tell ndiswrapper where the windows driver is. It is much nicer than setserial :P

    feel free to PM me if you want more help on this.

    There is nothing wrong with windows - if you know
    how to secure it - if not then your screwed

    I really have to think some of you dont know windows very well
    if your having problems all the time, but I have used windows for
    over 15 years - so buy now I have learned to deal with the bugs
    and problems,

    I do see people all the time with spy ware ridden computers,
    I work in a computer shop, but guess what, I never have any
    problems, why?, Because I know how to protect my computer

    you get a few programs - all you can get freeware

    (1) firewall
    (2) antivirus
    (3) anti-spyware
    (4) a program to reboot windows - use with Task Scheduler
    and set to reboot once a day

    - now that being said I use Windows XP, I dont have any problems -

    I have 8 computers,

    (1) Server, runs XP - I wish I could run linux - but I cant seam to get my
    gc83 cellular card to work under linux - but xp runs with no problems -
    I just want better networking control

    (2) My Dads computer, runs XP, 3 year old install - runs fine, - its on the net

    (3) My computer, I did have one problem, that WMF exploit, did a reinstall
    it was also a 2 or 3 year old install - I use Firefox and still got had, BTW
    WINE for linux was also Vulnerable, - its on the net

    (4)TV PVR computer - runs XP, never any problems, - its on the net

    (5) Work Laptop, P3 500mhz, runs XP, never any problems, - its on the net

    (6) School Laptop P3 500mhz, Runs Ubuntu Linux, I do like linux
    - and am taking linux clases

    (7) Laptop, 486dx 33mhz - its my Windows 95 computer and use it
    for dos games - it also runs off of 12v so its down in the storm shelter
    because there is a 12v car battery charged by solar panels down there

    (8) Compaq Deskpro P3 800mhz, runs XP, - its at work - its on the net

    out of 7 windows computers the only problem I have had was the
    WMF exploit - in years - and there all on the internet except the 486



    Now that being said I do like linux - but sometimes it seams like
    they took the security thing to far -

    In Linux
    Its like I just woke up and I have to **** real bad - but I have to enter
    a password to get out of bed, then I have to enter a pass word to walk
    to the bath room, then I have to enter a password to open the bath
    room door - then I have to enter a password to find MR Winkey
    and last but not least, I have to enter a password to ****
    and by that time, I **** all over my self

    In Windows
    Its like I just woke up and I have to **** real bad, there is a ****
    bucket beside your bed, you use it, and go back to sleep

    I gess the WMF exploit would be like steping in the **** bucket
    trying to get out of bed

    I will gripe at Microsoft - for the whole Windows ME thing

    I have swore, that if I ever meet Bill Gates, or any one responsible
    for Windows ME, That I would kick them in the nuts so hard they
    lift off the ground

    If you do use windows stick to Windows 98se or Windows XP
    And you will be fine, just be shure to protect it

    I probably a little late with this help, but the way to make your internet cards controllable by the user with kinternet is to enter yast and network devices setup. When configuring the network interface there is a dialog that has a checkbox for "user controlled". Filling this checkbox will allow the interface to be controlled with kinternet.

    Hi!
    @pkg

I don't know much about linux but i ran it for quite some time (potato, woody) on this desktop of mine (200MMX, 64MB), and want it to go into my carpc, epia sp13000... but I just don't know which linux to use. Could you, or someone help me on this? And how is GPS software going on this platform?

    Many thanks!

    Hi,

    I run both stable and unstable. Sarge is the latest "stable" build. Sid is the latest "unstable". Debian runs great on the EPIA boards. I would be happy to help you get running with deb PM me or start up a thread with what you want to ask. I did not need to do anything special during the install on my via EPIA board. The debian installer was able to do everything by default. I prefer the net installs myself, a lot faster because you only DL what you are installing.

    GPS is an interesting one. gpsdrive is the closest GPS app to the commercial stuff, but it is all 2D maps and no directions. MapFactor out of the czech republic http://mapfactor.cz has nice GPS software for linux, but only Europe maps right now (which may work for you? ).

    -Paul

    BTW, your english isn't that bad.

    GPS is the number 1 reason form me not to use linux in my car
    - my linux teacher was saying there is a free source of maps for
    linux that cover the USA - but there not that good, ether old or
    not very accurate - I may try and find them
