Re: Installation issues and concerns

Ditto on using gparted from the menu before launching the installer.
Been doing it that way since I started using Mepis, MX predecessor.

Old Unix Videos

I ran across this old video about UNIX from Bell Labs.
I was struck by how articulate these guys were.

Re: Please suggest which ram should i use

I use Crucial or Kingston ram.

But for older hard to find ram, try 18004memory.

Always use matched sticks in pairs.

Re: Total beginner looking for LiveCD instructions

There was an XP Pro 64.
I never knew that.

One of the things I like about this forum.

Re: Total beginner looking for LiveCD instructions

Or a 64 bit OS running on a 32 bit computer.
Did you get the right install media for that computer?

Re: Total beginner looking for LiveCD instructions

I am a bit confused by this post. I never heard of XP running on a 64 bit computer.

Re: MX Commercial product registry

When buying peripherals for Linux, Google "Linux Compatible plus the make and model."
This usually works for me.
You probably already knew this.
I just thought I would throw it out there.
