Linux – Sweet!

Lessons – I thought I would share this with everyone – and hopefully someone can learn about Linux.

 I had to travel to Ireland for the week so I took my laptop along.  For reasons that I am still unware of the OS went belly up with a corrupt CONFIG/SYSTEM file error on boot. 

Nothing seemed to fix it and I didnt have my OS disks with me – although I suspect it would have been a rebuild anyway.

So I went down to local book shop and bought a copy of Linux Format and Linux User.  The Kilkenny Bookshop is an excellent shop if you ever find yourself in Kilkenny with nothing to read.

They always have a distro handy, so I booted Open SUSE 10.2.  Within an hour, I was online with Wireless, had figured out XINE so that my kid could watch a DVD and was able to work on Excel and Word documents. 

Shall just keep SUSE on – seems better anyway and I can blog away too.

  1. I personally was initially researching for strategies for
    my own blog site and stumbled upon your own
    article, “Linux – Sweet! Daves Blog”, will you care in case I
    personally apply a number of your suggestions?
    Thx -Brent
