What happened to Xmms?
I recently decided to upgrade my desktop PC from Etch to Lenny and seem to have lost Xmms... There is now an Xmms2 but it seems to be 100's of plugins and is very confusing and xmms2 itself seems to be command-line - Now, I've no issues with that, but I have a GB of my own CDs ripped into ogg format and xmms used t... 4 Dec 2008 08:31

Asus EEeeee etc -- granny friendly?
Wotcher all, talk of the Asuses has got me wondering. Is the linux install fairly granny friendly? My mum's in her 60s and not particularly adept with computers (to put it mildly), I was thinking of getting a linux version of the Eeeeee and seeing if it's suitable for her, and if not, using it for myself. I get ... 3 Dec 2008 16:26

Parsing ELF ... Done <REBOOT> (lenny 2.6.26-1-486)
Since upgrading to lenny I've got one (old pentium 60) that will not boot with kernel 2.6.26. It's booting fine with 2.6.18 from Etch. It gets as far as Parsing ELF... Done and then it reboots. I don't think it's even printing "now booting the kernel". Anyone got any ideas? Tim. -- God said, "div D = rh... 25 Nov 2008 19:45
