    They still have some on the site, though they're busy culling them out.
    I think it would be way more useful to generate a list of magnet links, or lists of magnet links.
    Or, if you insist on using .torrent files, generate .torrent files from magnet links.

    this should not be, my late-2007 late (as in now dead) macbook could (and did) handle it better than this.

    Yeah, that's quite the issue.
    Still, I think my performance SHOULD be better..Fuck ATI's drivers, man.

    Does having UEFI instead of legacy BIOS affect installation of a Linux distro? I was thinking of installing a Fedora x64 distro, would I have to take any extra steps to deal with UEFI or can I just download the .iso, burn it to a CD and pop it in like I would with the legacy BIOS?

    Most modern Linux systems seems to work with UEFI, but I'm not sure. if it doesn't work, you'll probably know, so I'd say just give it a try.

    Can't say for other distros but Fedora works just fine.

    I have UEFI and I didn't notice anything different when it came to dual booting Arch. I didn't even think about it until after I'd already installed.

    Edit: However, I know for a fact that PXE booting with UEFI can be a pain in the ass, though I imagine that doesn't matter for most people.

    Installed Fedora, but the screen is stretched out and won't support the maximum resolution of my monitor. I've tried using xrandr to readjust it, but it won't work. When I attempt to install Nvidia drivers, it says that I have X running, and I'm not too sure about shutting it down. Been searching up methods of fixing this all day, and none of them work. Any way to fix this?

    What do you mean? It sees your card right there. Do you need help setting it up?
    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php...guring_Network
    That should walk you through getting it working.

    You could also install something like wicd through your ethernet device and it'll configure the wireless card for you.

    this is going to sound retarded, but how can i get a files path on linux?

    Edited:

    nvm figured it out

    god damn, i can't find a single fucking simple direction set to actually get anything done on linux. It's like "reset your dbus or reload it"

    Here's my question. I made a thread for this, but it sorta died.

    I want to install Mint on an external hard drive, but don't know what to do with the installer. I downloaded it onto the drive, but don't know what to do next. (last time I tried to do this, I overwrote the windows boot block on the internal drive.)

    I recently installed the latest version of Ubuntu over linux mint 11, which was all well and good, but the wireless was godawful slow. I heard that the latest version of Mint had the same problem, so I re-installed 11. Then I updated, and bam slow wireless.

    Not asking for a guide to fix the problem, per se, but I'm just curious if anyone knows what's causing the issue.

    During the installation it should ask which HDD you want to install GRUB on, usually defaults to your main HDD.

    download and unpack drivers to /tmp
    term
    init 3
    cd /tmp
    ./<nvidia drivers>
    you might need gcc installed first so do a yum install gcc

    Edited:

    It says installation options. Not sure what to select.
    just run it in a VM

    once you get use to mint then install it directly onto your PC

    Going to attempt to install Linux on my old Motorola Droid, let's see how this works. I've got a choice of Debian or Ubuntu.
    On one hand, I've used Ubuntu (even if just a little bit) before, but I've never used Debian.

    Also, unrelated question, if I run Linux on a VM on my Windows box will it run at close to full speed?
    I tried running Hexxeh's Chrominium OS on VMWare once and it was unusable.

    Chrome sucks and isn't supported really

    You'll get about 80-90% performance, with VT-x/d/EPT, AMD-v/IOMMU, and VMtools closer to 95%. If it didn't give very good numbers virtualization wouldn't be as big as it is

    Best virtualization that runs on Linux?
    I'd go with Qemu/KVM

    Edited:

    Fedora has a package for virtman, which is a nice management tool for Qemu/KVM instances.

    ok, so i got WICD to work on my laptop, but when i click on it's GUI it says can't find any networks, and even if i plug an Ethernet cable directly into the computer it still won't connect to the internet at all.

    if it helps the laptop is an aspire one.

    Don't you have an ethernet port? You should have internet if you hard wire yourself in; it shouldn't take any configuration really.

    Sorry I have to go to bed, tomorrow I'll chat you up on steam and we'll get this figured out.

    I use ethernet with a static ip arrangement, so I don't even use dhcpcd. I find it much faster and more convenient.

    I am currently trying to install Arch on a machine without a CD drive. I'm instead using a flash drive to boot the installation but it keeps failing with "ERROR: failed to mount real root device".
    I have searched and found a lot of threads about it, but I haven't been able to find a fix that worked for me.
    Any suggestions?

    Edited:

    I think I found a solution. When creating a live USB from the Arch ISO it will be created with non-persistent drive labeling. So for the live USB to actually work it must be used on the computer it was created on. At least that is my guess, because right now I tried plugging it in my laptop (which created the live USB) and it booted just fine.
    Now the question is: WHY?! I used dd to copy the ISO to the USB so I can't really see what I should have done wrong.

    For the last 4 hours I have been working on putting Arch on a USB key and to make it run on an old thin client. Now that I finally made it work I realize the thin client has a i586 CPU which means I can't install stuff from the repo (which is i686). Well fuck me.
