I would check if there is any additional proprietary drivers are listed: Click you mouse on "System" then "Administration" and then "Additional Drivers". See if the is any video drivers listed. If at least one driver is there, you would like to install it.

Hope this will be the case

What are the issues about Linux Operating System


There are MANY Linux operating systems. The main ones known are Ubuntu, Fedora, PC Linux OS, OpenSUSE, Cent OS, Linux Mint and Debian.

Debian is the mother or what Ubuntu and Linux Mint is built from. Debian is considered to be stable. Ubuntu is also supposed to be stable as is Linux Mint. The advantage of these two are ease of use. Debian, Linux Mint and Ubuntu are using .deb packages for applications to be installed.

OpenSUSE uses .rpm packages. It is also considered as stable, but not as widely used as Debian (and the other two) CentOS and Fedora.

CentOS is mainly used for Server purposes. However, in the installation, there are many types of installation options, including Desktop. CentOS is based on the Enterprise version of Red Hat. This is what mainly more and more websites are running off of as it is extremely STABLE and FAST!! So Cent OS is the free EXACT version of Red Hat. Fedora, is the test bed for Red Hat , carrying the LATEST technology being made available to anyone for free.


ALL of these operating systems, except Red Hat, are for FREE. All applications are for FREE. Just to let you know, Google also is using a Linux version for their phones now as well called Android, which you can also acquire for FREE.

The only disadvantage that used to exists until recent is that you could not play all the latest and greatest games on Linux. Now with Steam, you can play anything.

There is a myth that you could not install Windows applications on Linux. You can use Wine on Linux to install Microsoft Windows Applications. If you are having a problem, you are probably missing some files for wine to make it work properly.

Linux is also being used in cars. Check out Toyota and Mercedes Benz that is using Ubuntu. Linux is big and amazing.

Hope that answers your questions.

How can I download and open to install Yahoo messenger please?


empathy for ubuntu works with most messenger formats including yahoo. empathy is installed along with linux on ubuntu 10.10 so may already be installed on your system. ubuntu 10.10 is free and I guess you must now be out of your 60 day included support.
you might want to check out the ubuntu forums on the correct syntax to download and install programs in ubuntu
http://ubuntuforums.org/
the valusoft offering appears to be ubuntu 8.04 which is way out of date as we're on 10.10 which is the latest stable release and includes a software installer.

My model is gigabyte g41m-combo motherboard i want linux os which linux os is best support tell me about kernel verstion ?


Hi,
Its your good decision to try linux.
I would like to suggest you to try Ubuntu linux as this supports most of the hardwares.

Download latest ubuntu for the below link
http://se.releases.ubuntu.com/10.10/ubuntu-10.10-rc-desktop-i386.iso
After downloading, write the ISO image to a cd which will be a bootable cd.

place the disc in your drive, restrt you machine.
Boot your pc from this ubuntu cd.

you will get the live ubuntu (no need to install) or even you can install if you want.

Kernel is common for all the linux and it s core operating system file.

I hope this is useful to you
please rate the solution provided.
thanks

No sound


When you go from Windows to Linux (Ubuntu) you will have problems as the hardware and drivers were made for Windows and not Linux. Ubuntu does not always automatically pick up your hardware. Here's what you can do to make it easier. The latest Ubuntu is 8.10 so you need to download the latest version. Then once that is downloaded you need to look at the top bar, there will be a red arrow asking you to download the latest patches. Take those steps as it will bring you current version and current software and may allow your sound card to work.

Don't forget to vote on this solution.
