Re: post install tidbits? [was Help with Linux selection please?]
Andrew M.A. Cater spoketh:
Linux hearts card game on Google shows two good entries at the top.
One appears to be a project started this year: the other is about 9
years old on freshmeat. Those might be a good start to look at.
Mike McCarty spoketh:
Google is your friend. Searching for
+linux +hearts +card +game
got *several* hits.
I had googled and did again, and the only "hit" I find that is anywhere
near close is hearts-1.98
which when I tried to build it dies in the ./configure with something
about X paths not found. When I do this sort of thing on my Mac I know
where everything is, how to add to PATH/env variables, etc. Since one
does not get up to speed overnight, I guess "hearts" will just have to
wait until I do (unless someone has already installed it and wants to
hold my hand =-O )
Mike McCarty spoketh:
look for a line like this:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.12-1-686 root=/dev/hde1 ro
and make it more like this:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.12-1-686 root=/dev/hde1 ro quiet splash
That's certainly clear enough - thank you. But it didn't help - as was
previously noted the display log is most likely post grub. I think
someone mentioned something about X windows config - I'll look for that.
Andrew M.A. Cater spoketh about switching between Gnome and KDE:
If you have a boot manager (gdm/kdm) running - select under Session
and Mike McCarty spoketh:
Not precisely. But one can shut down the window manager and restart the
other. Or change the user preference. Or have two user logins with
What I did was select KDE at the graphical login screen. I could even
pick a Mac OS X style :-) :-) In the Desktop configuration GUI there
were settings for power management that I don't remember seeing for
Gnome. In trying such it has gotten as far as standby so far and come
back reliably. Have to wait another 30 minutes to see if it handles
full monitor power down and back. So at least with KDE I'm closer to
resolving that issue :-)
What I don't like is that the largest screen resolution I can set is
800x600 :-( How can I get back to 1024x768 that I selected during install?
Have not got back to numlock yet.
Gotta get back to reading,
