[QUOTE=silverblu;31102849]Do you have Tahoma and Lucida Console?[/QUOTE] Not sure, how would I install them? winetricks?
[QUOTE=Banana Lord.;31102896]Not sure, how would I install them? winetricks?[/QUOTE] That would be one way to do it.
[QUOTE=ASmellyOgre;31098452]Yes, probably the best one to be honest. It should work perfectly out-of-the-box.[/QUOTE] So it detects windows and makes it dual-boot?
[QUOTE=BlueYoshi;31108600]So it detects windows and makes it dual-boot?[/QUOTE] I'm not sure if you're talking about GRUB. However, if you are, then no. You need to edit it's configuration file and add the Windows partition to it.

Usually it detects it automatically. I know ubuntu does this pretty well. Mint should do the same. If mine is using the same autodetect scripts as ubuntu you don't need to worry.

Augh, dwm looks so sweet but I can't seem to configure it properly and to my likings (probably because I never used tiling window managers). :suicide:
Awesome is a great tiling wm to start with.
I've been using Ubuntu for a while now, but recently I decided I want to try out another Linux distro. Is Fedora a good one, or do you Facepunchers recommend something else? I'm looking for a distro with the least content, but with something I can use to get software ala YUM.
Arch [editline]14th July 2011[/editline] I mean that's the first thing probably anyone here will answer
Look at this article: [url]http://www.hikaro.com/linux/dns/why-would-you-choose-windows-over-linux.html[/url] The grammar is perfect, its arguments are [i]completely[/i] valid and backed up by real facts. This guy is a retard...
Falco if that's not a troll just leave him alone

Honestly, can't people just collectively decide that both OS's serve different purposes and audiences?

And that is a ten-year-old product from Microsoft. (yeah right)
Well, I tried installing Arch on my actual PC, instead of just using a VM. I did everything right, but I messed up when I tried to install the bootloader, so instead of going to GRUB and giving me a choice, it just boots straight to Windows.

If you put the arch CD back in you can fix this fairly easily. You should be able to start the grub command line utility [code]grub[/code] From there you'll need to run these: [code] root (hdX,Y) setup (hdA) [/code] Here's you'll need to swap A for the disk you want to install grub to (usually 0) You'll also need to replace X and Y by the disk number and partition number of your /boot partition (if you don't have one use the / partition) Remember that grub counts disks and partitions starting from 0. So sda1 is (hd0,0) and so on. If you're unsure of the partition number you can find it in the grub command line utility [code] # If you have a /boot partition find /grub/stage1 # otherwise find /boot/grub/stage1 [/code] You can run this before the stuff I posted above (in the grub command line util) you then need to replace (hdX,Y) with what the find command gave you. Also, you'll probably want to replace (hdA) with (hd0) since its you'll most likely want grub on the mbr of the first disk. This may also help, if my explanations are confusing: [url]http://orgs.man.ac.uk/documentation/grub/grub_3.html#SEC9[/url]
Oh wow, I tried to google "arch linux wiki" but I ended up by googling "arch linux wii", here's the result: [url]https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Wii_Tutorial[/url] :pwn:
Bloody hell, can't decide what distro I want to run on my laptop. I honestly like to stick to familiar package managers, so I'm thinking something Debian-based. Crunchbang is great, but I couldn't get wireless working last time. Does anyone know the name of that package on Ubuntu that handles the proprietary driver installation? [editline]15th July 2011[/editline] Spent some time on Google, it's jockey-gtk. Hopefully I can get that working in Crunchbang.

[QUOTE=Sir Whoopsalot;31132645]I'm running Crunchbang on my laptop, ees nais.[/QUOTE] I think 90% of us wind up settling on either Arch or Crunchbang.
For some reason Crunchbang's installer is fucking up at installing the bootloader. [editline]15th July 2011[/editline] Bloody hell, can't get it to work.
I hear there's also Archbang which is basically Crunchbang but arch. From experience I can say that if you can handle using the CLI for a bit pacman is so much better than apt
Too late I herped the derp and installed Linux Mint for the first time in my life. The good news is, the installer didn't fuck up the installation of GRUB.
Going to get an APT repo going on my VPS and then get puppet configured. [editline]15th July 2011[/editline] Later.
