Hi. napansin ko lang may ilang peeps na interesado sa linux. I'll try to help as much as I can. Maybe we also have guys here that are very much experienced with linux so we can help them help us as well.

dude, i have a feeling opening this thread is no longer necessary as there's an existing linux thread, not to mention the other Open Source thread.

no offense meant, pramis -_-

OK lang bro, no offense taken. Dun sa isang linux thread kasi, its more of a newbie discussion. Dito ang pwede maging range of audience is from newbie to expert. Madami akong nakitang linux experts sa ibang thread. Maybe we can get them to contribute/answer questions here, kung meron.

Also, I dont mind if the mods close this thread kung wala naman talagang questions o problems na pumapasok. Its just an initiative on my end.

HOWTO: Setup a Linksys WPC54G v3 Wireless Card on Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft

Ubuntu Linux have a come along since it Warty Warthog days. The desktop is now really really refined and its packages despite some being bleeding edge, are very very stable. While Ubuntu 6.06 or fondly called as Dapper Drake is known to have Long Term Support (hence the LTS in its name), I still prefer using the latest build, in this case, is Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft.

Now, while most of the functionalities of my laptop, worked out of the box, I found out that my wireless PCMCIA card, a Linksys WPC54G version 3.0 card, did not work out of the box. So i triffled through the Ubuntu Community Support Forums and I found this entry -- How to: Broadcom Wireless card.

I've been using various linux distributions since 1998.
How much are people willing to pay for linux installation services?

Try Red Hat. It's easier to install and configure. Ubuntu is not bad but lacks many features.

Hi I'm just an average Redhat Enterprise user. Anyone who knows how to do clustering in linux?
I can be a big help with many things regarding Oracle.

I personally implemented a linux clustered router (+firewall serving 6 high traffic segments) back in 2003, using the theories from Ultra Monkey and the boxes are still doing their gob real well. But then that was 4 years ago and i think things has improved a lot.

I guess the most popular (and comprehensive? ) implem is the Linux High Availability Project.

been a while since i touched the subject :P

Can anyone suggest a nice Linux distro for a total newbie that's easy to install and handle? Preferrably, one that can run Office, Y!M, and games... sawa na ako sa kaka-reinstall ng Windows XP every 30 days (oo na, cheapo, lol) :D

I cant help but point you to http://www.mslinux.org/

Seriously, i recommend Xandros, Linspire/Freespire. They have built in Open Office which is as good as MS Office, they have built in games, and instant messengers which connects to ym. If you want to run windows based applications like MS Office, windows games and windows version of ym (there is a linux version) you might want to take the circuituous route of installing cedega or crossover (xandros) or the native wine and hopefully you may be able to successfully configure them. Check the list of windows programs successfully run under wine here http://appdb.winehq.org/

I would suggest though that before you spend time configuring windows based programs, try their linux equivalent and youll be pleasantly surprised. Check here http://wiki.linuxque...indows_software

If you want to make your desktop look like windows xp check this http://www.kde-look....hp?content=1499

Good luck.

Anyone have any luck at installing ffmpeg with centos 5? I'm trying to setup a lamp box to serve videos ala youtube but ffmpeg is giving me grief. Already tried installing rpm, binary, svn repo and compiling from source, di tumutuloy sa make. Got to install mplayer and xvid, ffmpeg lang talaga ayaw, and the docs sa webpage are pretty useless.
