My computer

I got my computer about a year ago and assembled it myself. Though I like playing around with hardware from time to time, I’m always really glad when it’s all done - and working! So here’s what I have (only main specs):

 

Ubuntu and SUSE

As I already mentioned I recently changed from Ubuntu to SUSE. Why? To sum it up: I was up for a change! :-) And I liked the way SUSE integrated 32bit Software into their 64bit OS.

 

Linux and me

With “SuSE Linux 5.3” I gave Linux the first try. I just got quite familiar with Windows 95 and was up for something new. I didn’t really know what I was doing but the installation went pretty well - but no X-Server was working with my system… OK, that was it! …until “SuSE Linux 6.3”. I actually got X working and even my soundblaster. For the latter I had to “recompile” the kernel. Again, I had no clue what I was doing, I just followed some instructions I came across via Google. I still preferred using Windows for every day work. This changed a bit when I bought “SuSE Linux 7.2”, which worked out of the box! The follow-up version 7.3 was a disappointment, I had a lot of trouble with it and the same goes for 8.x, so I switchd to “Mandrake 8.2” (which is Mandriva today) and that did hit the spot!

 

Getting started...

So, now I started this blog. Let’s just wait and see what kind of wisdom it’ll bring to the world. To be honest, I already know: it’ll be mostly about computers and stuff! ;-)
