stable Linux. Truth or Myth?
location: linux.com - date: October 11, 2011
I want to know if there is any such thing as a stable desktop Linux distro, or is it just a myth? Since I started playing with Linux I've probably tried more than a dozen different flavors on about a dozen different platforms. I can't be real specific because each one had its own problems; but for example, I've just re-installed Linux Mint 11. Within an hour, Firefox crashed without warning or explanation and shortly after that, The OS itself crashed hard and I had to restart the computer. These are typical problems I've had with Linux since I started playing with it more than 10 years ago. I would really like to use Linux to replace my Mac, but so far I haven't found one that I can count on. Is there a reliable distro? Or is there a way to make a buggy distro more reliable? So far I've tried most of the popular ones: Red Hat, Fedora, openSUSE, Ubuntu, Mint, Linspire, and a few others that I can't recall at the moment. Of all of them, Mint 6 was my favorite, but each suc
Burning or converting ccd, img, sub to CD?
location: linux.com - date: August 3, 2009
Ok so I'm the kind of person to do his reasurch before asking questions but now I'm just stuck.
I can't really find a way to burn a CDimage that's made from cloneCD so if anyone has an idea I'd apreciate it.
Just as info I'm running xubuntu/ubuntu desktops and I've already tried using ccd2iso and K3D to make an iso. I've also tried finding a .deb package for ISOmount but no luck.

New Linux GUI optimised for Tablets

First of all, let me tell you something: If it is money you want to start helping me, then you will get a fair share of any profit.
So, Picture This:
I am a 12 year old, dreaming in bed, and in my dream I have inspiration (where else would you get it from?).
My inspiration is for a new Tablet-Oriented GUI. I do NOT have a lot of money, and as such do not have a tablet, nevermind one that could think about running Linux. However, I am saving up for one, and the one that has caught my eye is ¬£350. *gulp*
Forget about Tablets for a second.I do not have hardware capable of dual booting, that's how much memory I have used up with damned Windows. I don't want to sacrifice windows, I have Flash MX 2004 running on it and have lost the disk. Therefore, I cannot test builds on my own machines.
Ok, Remember Tablets now. I am not doing a plea for a tablet, but I am still going to go through what this tablet will need to have.

I was just wondering ... I think Linux should design a computer some what like the iPad from Apple. I know I would buy one, and I'm sure everyone that uses Linux would as well. While purchasing one the customer has the option to choose what operating system they would like.
Apple software vs Windows software on Linux...
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 25, 2003
First, is it possible to install Apple software on Linux? If so, since Apple's OSX is based off of Linux(correct?), would it run any more smoothly than Windows software? I'm just thinking, perhaps for things like WarCraft 3 or maybe even Photoshop, the programs would run more nativly than Windows software...
Why headphones work with Ubuntu, Fedora and Scientific Linux but not Debian Wheezy?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 28, 2013
I am trying to figure out why my headphones work with Ubuntu 13.04, Fedora 18 and Scientific Linux 6.4 but not Debian Wheezy? With the others all sound is fully functional out of the box.
Basic speaker sound in Debian works although it is a little tinny.
I am trying to install on a late 2011 Apple Intel iMac 27 inch model. For every other distro other than Debian the headphones work outside the box. I would prefer to run Debian if possible.
Is it something in the Kernel? Would copying the .config from Ubuntu and using it to compile a new Debian Kernel work?
