Who here runs linux?

I use PCLinuxOS 2007. I don't know what kernel. I use it for everything except gaming (win XP dual-boot). I love it and would have entirely trashed M$ long ago if it weren't for the games (and with Cedega, I may trash M$ yet).
Here is an Ubuntu 7.04 user too. I use it mainly for programming. I'm forced to keep winXP and win2k for games (HL2), for DVDs movies, and to activates my WIFI USB dongle (Ndiswrapper fails to activates it on linux startup. I'm forced to boot to WinXP, and then to reboot to Ubuntu ...)
Who force you?
Things have changed since 2007-08-27.
- Ubuntu 7.10
- Ndiswapper now works with my wifi USB dongle
- I don't play HL2 (till Episode 2 is available alone in my commercial centre and at a nice price)

However, DVDs still crash sometimes ...

I've got rid of Win2K, but I still keep WinXP just in case.

Her ?
@'However, DVDs still crash sometimes ...' What Linux do you use? @'I've got rid of Win2K, but I still keep WinXP just in case.' I have dualboot too. Also Windows XP and Linux. @'Her' *lol*
> What Linux do you use?

Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy) with Kernel 2.6.22-14-generic.
GNOME 2.20.1
I play DVD movies with Gxine 0.5.11, and sometimes, in the middle of a movie, it stops playing and display an error message.
This generally happens with copy protected DVDs.

Upgrade to Ubuntu 8.04? For DVD look for libdvdcss, libdvdread and install both.
> Upgrade to Ubuntu 8.04?

I'm generally not very lucky with upgrades .... (don't know why), I generally end-up being forced to reinstall from scratch.

As long as 7.10 works correctly and is stable enough, I will not take any risk ;oP

> For DVD look for libdvdcss, libdvdread and install both.

I have both installed. libdvdcss2, and libdvdread3.
Maybe it comes from my computer (too slow) or my DVD rom (too old) ? =o/
I mainly use it for work (and web) anyway so it does not really matter ...

Never touch a running system.. :)

I sent for their DVD just because I haven't the time to spend on downloading and fooling about with it to create a DVD myself :-) ( the newest version of Ubuntu I mean ). But it takes 4-8 weeks to get it here :-(
