Dreamlinux forum needs work asap!

Filed under
Others

I noticed the article in "tuxmachines" about dreamlinux after finding it by doing a google search on "compiz".From distrowatch I found the article.I have installed dreamlinux xgl and do not know how to make the efects work.I read something on the dreamlinux forum about it but it did not make sense to me,I was going to register but the langauge barrior stoped me from doing that.I think it is a good distro but without forum help it is kind of difficult.I also noticed that nvidia released a new driver for x.I would like to make the cube work but the dreamlinux forum is not much help and I am still not real good with the command prompt(console) yet.I need some step by step help!

Dreamlinux

Dreamlinux = linux for newbies? I don't think so.
Torvalds said that he install only simple distro, so he can focus his work, the kernel development.
I think that peoples that use the pc for work or for production prefer a simple distro with great functions like dreamlinux.
I suggest everyone to try dreamlinux!! Maybe through VirtualBox, like me.

dreamlinux live cd, can`t connectto the internet

I need help, I have downloadet dreamlinux and now it will not connect to the internet. with all the other linux distros no problem, I am always automatic connected to the internet. I have Etho1, and a router, buthis should never be a problem, cause I never had a problem to connect to the internet with other linux distros. helpl. Also when I put in my usb mem stick, it will not mount it at all, leaves it unmounted as much as i click on mount, it don`t helps, also no problem with other linux distros. Then i have no soundat all, so actually nothing is working, why?
thanks for your help.

dreamlinux, internet

Well, it's been so long since I messed with it I may not remember specifics. But it may not have recognized your net card. What make and model ethernet chip do you have? (Do you have more than one installed?)

type in a terminal: /sbin/lsmod and see if you see the module for your card listed if you know it. If you do know it and you don't see it, /sbin/modprobe (your_module). If you don't know it, get back to me on the above question.

If you've modprobed your module, try typing: dhcpcd eth0 and see what happens. Report back and we'll go from there.

i've got a NF-M2S abit micro atx mobo

srlinuxx, thank you for your

srlinuxx, thank you for your fast response, I am finally online on dreamlinux, I have two etho cards, so it was on etho-0 anstead on etho-1, I clicked on etho 1 and on aply twice and then it was configured and am online. Thank you for you help.

now the other problem is still, I have no sound on dreamlinux, and my usb mem stick will not be mounted, who could help me with this? Thanks again.
ilanesh.

re: dreamlinux, sound

What kinda sound card/chip do you use? You say it works in other linux distros? Hopefully it's just a matter of modprobing the right module.

as far as your usb stick, you may be stuck mounting and umounting it manually. Hopefully there's support in the dreamlinux kernel for it. Try mkdir /mnt/sda and then mount -t auto /dev/sda /mnt/sda and see what it says.

You talk the talk, but do you waddle the waddle?

I am not good in

I am not good in commandlines, I don`t no how and where to do this? I need everything automatic but not to break my head how and where to do all this things, this is not good. I don`t no how to do root also on this dream linux, is there not an easier way? without all those comman lines? this is th most difficult and confusing thing to do.
thanks for your help.
ilanesh.

re: commandline

It looks like you may be able to get away with no commandline for sound. If your sound doesn't work upon boot, it says you can use the Alsa Config utility under your home directory/utilities. So give that a go and see what happens.

If you ever want to poke around the commandline, looks like Dreamlinux utilitizes the sudo philosophy. So, any command you want to issue you can just stick the word sudo in-front of. You'd input this into a terminal and there's a terminal entry in the menu. Or to su to root, one can: sudo su Or you could set up a root password so that the traditional su would work.

About the usb stick, it says if you click on the Computer icon on the desktop, it should show you all the partitions detected. If you right click on the device, you should have the option to mount (and then unmount) it. Most usb sticks get detected as sda or sdaX. Try that and see how it goes.

You talk the talk, but do you waddle the waddle?

re: dreamlinux

Google for xgl hotkeys and you should find several listings of them. I don't recall them right off-hand cuz I only use xgl when it comes on a distro I'm testing. I can't use it all the time, it gives me a headache. I think to move the cube it's press: control and alt and either drag it with your mouse or control and alt and left/right arrows.

As far as the new nvidia drivers, just run the NVIDIA installer and reboot (or restart X). That should be sufficient. I don't think there's any special voodoo there. (I'm also not sure it'd be much of a benefit to update them unless your upgrading Xorg to 7.1.)

Thanks srlinuxx.I must have

Thanks srlinuxx.I must have a different problem because the cube is not there or is that also toggled with hot keys.For the most part there install directions are helpful.I know nothing of compiz,however there is quite alot compiz forums.

CentOS vs Ubuntu: Which one is better for a server

Finally decided to get a VPS but can’t decide which Linux distro to use? We’ve all been there. The choice may even be overwhelming, even for Linux distros, considering all the different flavors and distros that are out there. Though, the two most widely used and most popular server distros are CentOS and Ubuntu. This is the main dilemma among admins, both beginners and professionals. Having experience with both (and more) distros, we decided to do a comparison of CentOS and Ubuntu when used for a server. Read more

  • My next EP will be released as a corrupted GPT image
    Endless OS is distributed as a compressed disk image, so you just write it to disk to install it. On first boot, it resizes itself to fill the whole disk. So, to “install” it to a file we decompress the image file, then extend it to the desired length. When booting, in principle we want to loopback-mount the image file and treat that as the root device. But there’s a problem: NTFS-3G, the most mature NTFS implementation for Linux, runs in userspace using FUSE. There are some practical problems arranging for the userspace processes to survive the transition out of the initramfs, but the bigger problem is that accessing a loopback-mounted image on an NTFS partition is slow, presumably because every disk access has an extra round-trip to userspace and back. Is there some way we can avoid this performance penalty?

  • What does security and USB-C have in common?
    I've decided to create yet another security analogy! You can’t tell, but I’m very excited to do this. One of my long standing complaints about security is there are basically no good analogies that make sense. We always try to talk about auto safety, or food safety, or maybe building security, how about pollution. There’s always some sort of existing real world scenario we try warp and twist in a way so we can tell a security story that makes sense. So far they’ve all failed. The analogy always starts out strong, then something happens that makes everything fall apart. I imagine a big part of this is because security is really new, but it’s also really hard to understand. It’s just not something humans are good at understanding. [...] The TL;DR is essentially the world of USB-C cables is sort of a modern day wild west. There’s no way to really tell which ones are good and which ones are bad, so there are some people who test the cables. It’s nothing official, they’re basically volunteers doing this in their free time. Their feedback is literally the only real way to decide which cables are good and which are bad. That’s sort of crazy if you think about it.
