Time Event
ximian gnome 2 is a-crashin'
So, this morning I get the bright idea to update Gnome on my RH 7.2 box at work. I use Red Carpet for my update needs, and I get the most recent developer snapshots for Gnome 2. I restart X, and when Gnome runs, it spawns dozens of copies of Nautilus, each of which crashes and coughs up errors. When I clear those, more windows open up.

I disabled Nautilus in /usr/share/gnome/default.session, and restarting, it seemed to work. This time, though, gnome-panel would often reset whenever I clicked on a pull-down menu for more than half a second. This makes the program quite a bit less than usable for me.

And then there's the third problem of certain Gnome programs (Galeon, Evolution, etc.) taking forever and a day to start up in KDE (read: 15-20 minutes on a 1.4GHz Athlon). But that's currently a side concern.

Anyone know of ways I can deal with these problems? This is really frustrating me and eating away at my patience.
Video Card Question
I'm a little non-plussed with my current video card set-up. (Let's just say that the Voodoo3 isn't cutting it anymore) So, I'm in the market for a new video card that works with Linux - I've had a number of bad experiences with PNY-brand nVidia cards. (and I should know better, to be honest) Needs? - 3D acceleration is a must, and TV capture would be nice. Other than that, just looking for "better" (whatever that means) than a Voodoo3.

Thank you in advance for your help.
I have been scourin the internet for the last past half hour for neo magic "MagicGraph 128ZV Plus"
video drivers for my slackware laptop. To my suprise even on the liux section of google, I get
very few results most of them leading me to places that I rather care less about. Anyone who
has any clue where I can find the drivers please inform me. Thank you.
network trouble
EDIT AGAINnevermind. i swapped the NIC in slots on the motherboard. it works now. damnit.

I'm setting up a new box. Redhat 7.3. It detects the NIC. I get a link light on the card + hub but no netowrk connection. it says it's inactive. i can't ping my router or anything other than localhost. any ideas?

edit: it does this with three different types of NIC's.
