Re: Hardware needed to play DVD's??

Ok, I'm pretty sure it's the old graphics card that's in the system. Did a System Monitor while a DVD was "playing" in VLC(I say playing because it was very, very slow) and out of the 512MB of RAM only about 230MB were allocated. I'd bet if I ordered a newer PCI Graphics card with a faster...

Re: Hardware needed to play DVD's??

Checked out the link, thanks. The "odd" thing is that DVD's play fine on my Laptop and it has the same version of Point Linux installed on it. Is there a certain amount of RAM needed(doesn't seem like it should matter but who knows) or something I'm missing here? Again, thanks for the link.

Question about Grub on start up.

I've noticed that every time I start my laptop I get the Grub menu prompt. Is this normal or should I do something so it'll automatically go to the first line of the prompt and boot to that without me needing to tell it to boot to the first line? Thanks, great Distro so far. ;)

Hardware needed to play DVD's??

I have a question about what's needed to play a DVD with VLC using Point Linux. I recently set up an older Dell L866r desktop computer for my daughter and grandson to use with Point Linux. It has a Pentium III 866MHz processor, I upgraded the memory to the full 512MB and installed my old 60GB hard d...

Re: proprietary nvidia drivers?

If you have a way of watching Ep. 290 of Category 5.TV Robbie touched on this very "issue" and how to resolve it. Looked like a pretty easy fix, just go into Synaptic Pkg. Manager and look for nVidia and you'll find help for installing drivers. Didn't seem very hard at all. Hope this will ...

Re: Like this distro

Thanks, TNFrank! P.S. I love this movie! ;) I watched your interview with Robbie on Catagory5.TV again(Ep 290) and I now see why Robbie was so excited about this Distro. I've not only got my daughter's old Dell L866r desktop running Point Linux OS(866MHz Pentium III, 512MB PC-100 RAM, 60GB Hard Dri...

Re: Like this distro

Ditto on liking the Distro. I've only been running Linux for about 4 months, started out with Ubuntu 12.04LTS, it was ok but as I got more familiar with Linux I wanted something I could do a bit more with so I moved to Mint 15 MATE about a month and a half ago, it's been nice but support for it will...
