HI, i am a newbie to Linux i have RH9, running on my laptop, and thus far aint got no problems. Just wondering are there many Linux users on this site? Can you suggest a good place to find info on how to do things, like i tried to load up a screensaver, got to ./configure and that's as far as i can get. Tried to save a file in KDE and gave up, had to switch back to Gnome!!!
Also do i need anti virus protection?
I assume that there are nasty things out there that will happily atteck my nice new install of Linux.
Guess that will do for the minuite!!!!! Thanks Kitz E Kat 100% M$ FREE Kat!!
Thanks Technodimwit(if that's your real name!!!), and huggyg71, more info than i can throw a mouse at!!!! One question left , do i need virus protection ? Was also kinda hoping there were more than two linux users,,
Hi Gaz thanks, you don't think that the firewall on RH9 is up to it? Do you ? And if i get another firewall should i disable the RH one, eh HOW? I ask cos i tried to disable the firewall on RH9, without any joy,i wanted to set up RH 9 as a webserver,with 2000 as a client, and with no internet access, this is in the interest of science!!!! However i could not disable the firewall, i even did a reinstall set the firewall off in the install, but when it finished the firewall was set to high. I gave up!!!!!!!!!!!!! Its a good OS and will stick with it. Kitz E
I tried Linux(Suse/RH/Mandrake/Lycoris distros)and can see its potential,but the learning curve was way to steep for me,I reverted back to Wimpdoze,where I at least can understand(more often)the errors.My grey cells were dieing far to fast to continue trying to learn Wimpdoze and Linux. :-)
