Time Event
Anyone used the KOffice suite? Specifically, KOrganizer & KMail. I'm wondering if they're usable enough to replace Outlook XP. <insert anti-MS rant here>
Does anyone know whats the best laptop for linux? I mean one that works best with linux. Or know of a place to find out?

More importantly, a laptop that Everything works on. (I.E. modem, nic, sound, usb)
Media down loader
Im looking for a good media downloader(mp3,mpeg,avi) for linux. I would really like a clone of WinMX. Right now im using gtk-gnutella 0.9. But it dosnt do multi user download, and I cannt search for an artist/band and the song name. I REALLY want that. It would also be great if it had something so I could select the media type (mp3, mpeg, avi, ect)

While im on the subject of media...

I have a Turtle Beach Santa Cruz sound card. I have sound but its not for my sound card. So surround sound dosnt work. I would really like it to. There page dosnt have the drivers for linux or the source. So if anyone knows were I can get the drivers Id be very great full.

Ill keep looking for both and post if I find anything.


Current Mood: nerdy
Sound Card
As I said in the post before me I was looking for some Turtle Beach Santa Cruz sound drivers. In my search I came across OpenSound. You have to pay for it but I installed the trial and it worked. But I am still looking for a free sound driver even open sound warez. I think that after I spent all this money on a sound card I shouldnt have to pay more for the drivers. When I first installed red hat 7.3 I had this problem. I would get this error message every once and awhile saying

Sound Server infomational Message:
Error while initializing the sound driver:
device /dev/dsp can't be opened (No such device)
The sound server will continue, using the null output device.

I would usally just reboot agien(this only happened when I started up) and then it would be fine. But since I installed open sound it wont go away. I uninstalled opensound and it will wont go away. I was talking to my dad (who also runs rh 7.3) and he said he heard that its a kernel problem. Is there a way to fix this?

Current Mood: pissed off
