Linux

New Hard Drive

The new 80GB Seagate Barracuda finally arrived. It is installed and the only time it failed to boot was when I tried using the old drive as a slave.

I installed OpenSUSE on a dual boot setup and have been using it almost exclusively. Linux is as much of a headache as anything else computer related. I have been pretty much going about my business just fine and only booted up into Windows to update the antivirus.

I was happy to fine that PocoMail runs under WINE, but it does behave very strangely. I also run Firefox under WINE. I wanted to try the newest version, but it is not available from the SUSE update and I couldn't figure out how to install it with the tarball. I am not able to find these programs using the terminal so I have to navigate through the file manager. bummer.
