I see Ubuntu is really popular last time :)

I have a CD-box version of Ubuntu. In the small box there are 2 cd's inside: livecd & install cd.

On LiveCD we have preinstalled apps and Gnome

But on InstallCD, after finishing all setup process I'll get only shell without any window manager :p I need manually download kde/gnome and then setup it manually too? :)

AUDIGY 2 USERS:

Install the linux-headers package that suits your kernel. I am running kernel 2.6.10-5-386

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-2.6.10-5-386 linux-headers-2.6.10

cd /usr/src

sudo wget ftp://ftp.alsa-project.org/pub/driv...r-1.0.8.tar.bz2

tar xvjf alsa-driver-1.0.8.tar.bz2

cd alsa-driver-1.0.8

sudo ./configure --with-cards=emu10k1 --with-sequencer=yes <----------GET TO HERE

sudo make

sudo make install

sudo nano /etc/modules

add in

snd-pcm-oss

snd-emu10k1

After executing the above line (marked)

sudo ./configure --with-cards=emu10k1 --with-sequencer=yes

This is what I get??

I'm unsure about Ubuntu itself but usually in 2.6.xx kernels with alsa drivers you just need to unmute "analog out" on alsamixer. Did you do that? (note: if you have more than 1 sndcard (onboard+audigy?) use "alsamixer -c *card number".

I've solve the problem (asked at irc ubuntu chat)

For some reasons, my "X" is not been installed.

So I am:

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

now all ok :happy:

And I have more troubles :p

1st: Can't configure my Internet Connection. I am using VPN in Windows. So, at Linux I've installed pppto packet, but I don't know, where I need to enter my server/username/password, etc.

2nd: Can't make 100Hz refresh rate to my monitor. I am configured at console x11config but I don't know what horizontal/vertical sync to enter :)

Oh. And I think, I need to ask this at ubuntuforums ;)

Ubuntu owns :yes:

I really wish I chose Ubuntu as my first linux install rather that spending hours on other distros and not even getting some of them to work :p

@ XDViPeR is that Windows XP? Because it looks sooo close/accurate to XP that I don't think it is just some Linux theme. But the weather gadgets make me think it is Linux. So if you don't mind could ya explain what WM and theme and icon set you are using. Thanks. :blush:
