    Any suggestions

    I'm pretty sure that nero can do that for you when you burn an audio cd. I think it works by removing anything thats equal on both channels, which isn't going to give you the best quality result. I suggest you just download the instrumental version of whatever songs you're looking to use for karaoke... or go to a store and buy some karaoke cds like we do.
  2. I happen to have Quake 4, Doom 3, Unreal Tournament 2004, Knights Of The Old Republic 1 and 2, Need For Speed Underground, Age Of Empires, and Starcraft. I'm always oh so bored with my linux distro.

    I don't understand why they'd use pre-rendered graphics this time around. The regular graphics are already amazing and they've always been big on showing off what the engine can really do. This must be Microsoft's influence...
  4. Just to let you guys know what kind of nastiness I have in store! http://www.pcpitstop.com/techexpress.asp?id=QAJDFWTE8YWSWYUC 2.4B fx5600 1gb DDR! RAWR! For anybody that's been keeping tabs... yes... there's been some downgrades. Damn power company killed my 9800pro and wouldn't pay for it! The nVidia card works better in Linux anyway though. I'm gonna see what kinda tweaks I can do to my VMware setup to get that score higher. I wonder if I can get it going from the commandline....
  5. I might have to dust off my voodoo card and show you wippersnappers a thing or two!
  6. This thread has just convinced me that I am officially old. I definitely can't see spending that much money on any console and the idea of arguing about it seems even more troublesome. I'm gonna go find a blanket, watch Quantum Leap, drink some ensure, and take a nap.
  7. We don't say it doesnt work. We say it doesn't work well in 3D applications. I had a 9800pro and it got the job done, but the fx5600 (a considerably slower card) i'm using now spanks it in linux.

    Since when did Ubuntu become a distro that uses RPMs? I think you need to stop for a second and consider what you're doing.

    It probably thinks that its a real player media file, which is why uninstalling realplayer is always one of the first things I do after I install a distro. I've never seen mplayer pull that crap before though. I'm sure a change in file associations will fix that for you.
  10. I had to install mozilla-nspr-4.6.3-6.1.i586.rpm and mozilla-nss-3.11.3-3.1.i586.rpm from the same server I got FF2 from. I've had FF2 for a good few weeks now. And you can uninstall those translations if you don't use them.
  11. He said he installed it through SMART. That means rpm and suse. His distro is also in his sig.
  12. "Microsoft is entering into an unusual partnership with Novell that gives a boost to Linux, people familiar with the companies tell WSJ.com. From the article: 'Under the pact, which isn't final, Microsoft will offer sales support of Suse Linux, a version of the operating system sold by Novell. The two companies have also agreed to develop technologies to make it easier for users to run both Suse Linux and Microsoft's Windows on their computers. The two companies are expected to announce details of their plan today at a press conference in San Francisco. In addition, Microsoft won't assert rights over patents over software technology that may be incorporated into Suse Linux, the people said. Businesses that use Linux have long worried that Microsoft would one day file patent infringement suits against sellers of the rival software.'"

  13. It is definitely the worst bittorrent client I've ever used. Sub 10kb/s speeds for the most part, not connecting to as many people as it should. I'll see if I can get Daddymac to post his experiences with it too.
  14. Oh man, it's been a great week for gaming... I got Quake4 a couple days ago and it SPANKS Doom 3, its just loads more fun with a whole lot less jumping outta your chair. I also just added Knights Of The Old Republic 2 to my linux repotoire (via cedega) and it seems to be running great too. I've only finished the prologue thusfar though. Don't think I'll actually play through this game, I've beatin it like twice back in the days when I still had Windows. Gonna go through my game discs at home and see what else I've got left. Gotta find my racing games...
  15. Remastered? They went back and fixed the blaring inadequecies in the OS?
  16. Got it installed, everything works flawlessly this time. And yes, it does run better than it does in Windows.
  17. Nice. I'll have to make an effort to get it installed again then. GREAT! This is what I've been looking for. There's gonna be some X-Men arcade game playing goin on.
  18. Gaming is one of the biggest things I hear people complain about when it comes to Linux as a desktop OS, but from my experience, the situation is nowhere near as grim as it's made out to be. So I'm curious what kind of gaming, if any, you guys do on your linux boxes including the games you play, if you used a compatibility layer or a game installer (like loki makes), and how difficult it was for you to get it installed/running. I'll start.... Considering Suse (10.0) is the only OS I have installed, I had to make sure I got my gaming situation settled. I started with UT2k4, which is a native linux game and found that it actually gave a higher framerate than it did in Windows. I was downright amazed by that game's performance. I also installed Doom3, another native Linux game, which worked, but didn't have sound for me. I tried a number of different things, but nothing seemed to work. I played the game anyway, and everything else seemed great, but that sound issue really kills the atmosphere. Both games had similar, not-so-user friendly install methods. Not satisfied with the small number of games I had, I broke down and got Cedega. I've gotten Age of Empires 2, Knights Of The Old Republic, and Starcraft installed with that, and I'm pleasently surprised by how good the program is. Starcraft had some oddness (played though, even had a lan game with my roomies), but the other two were great. Knights of the Old Republic was actually a game I had known to sometimes crash when I played it on Windows, but I played the game from beginning to end in Linux with Cedega and it only failed on me once. So now I'm looking for more games that work well and to know which games to avoid, based on others experiences. I'm especially interested in the loki installers as I haven't tried one yet.
  19. Make sure you're using the newest version. I believe guru has it. I know my version was incredibly outdated before I got a fresh one.

    Linux Sub-Forums

    Not if its a collection of links to other threads that would otherwise be buried deep within the archives. Or links to Bruce-style flash tutorials. Or a combination of the two. Just need someone with the free time to maintain it.

    Linux Sub-Forums

    How bout a sticky how-to thread. Subforums are useless with such a tiny amount of people. Look at all the other sub-forums, almost completely empty.

    *gasp* Slander! j/k, but I never said Mepis was the best. I haven't even had a chance to use it yet. Thus far Suse has been my favorite, though.
  23. Thank you, sir. Can I have another?
  24. ..o...k.... I'm done here.
  25. You're making the mistake of using a dictionary definition in the literary sense and applying it to an aspect of computer technology.
