#470779 Low Sound?

Posted by nadha on 05 February 2009 - 09:02 AM in Linux

I have my volume turned all the way up but i still can't hear anything. In Windows it isn't loud but I can at least hear it. Anyone have any ideas how I can make it louder other than putting in head phones?

It is kind of a killer for Linux so far.

The low sound may be because of the Speaker. If the speaker is ok then try the upgrades of software to sound. It must become normal

#470777 Linux Speeds vs. Windows

Posted by nadha on 05 February 2009 - 08:57 AM in Linux

Hello.

Can anyone guide me to benchmark tests and results that are comparing Linux vs. Windows, in terms of speed?

I'd like to know whether or not Linux is an overall faster operating system, with faster processing and rendering speeds than Windows.

If anyone can give me a link to a benchmark test, or maybe even share me your feedback regarding the speed comparison of Linux and Windows, that'd be great. :)

You don't need an expert or a survey to find out which OS is fast . I would close my eyes and inform you it is Linux. It is faster and safer than windows.



#470774 KDE Background unchangeable

Posted by nadha on 05 February 2009 - 08:54 AM in Linux

I can no longer change my KDE 3.5 background. I go into "Configure Desktop", select a new background, apply, ok. The background does not change. I refresh the background and it is the same.

I go back into "Configure Desktop" and I can see it has the background I chose but that isn't the background I see on KDE. I reboot, same background..

Any ideas short of re-installing KDE?

I think it some thing to do with your installation. You find all the information on the CD you use to install .. Just re install the software and find whether there are still problems.

#470759 Transform any Linux OS into a server?

Posted by nadha on 05 February 2009 - 07:40 AM in Linux

No, that was not my question... my question was not on the hardware side.. but on the software side...

There are so many server distros out there... so why not just install a normal OS, like Ubuntu and make it act as a server, instead of creating all those server OSes?


Can anybody inform what needed to be done while making our PCS in to server.. I mean Linux pcs.
The question is not yet answered.. While we install Linux we install all the softwares mentioned.
