If you're compiling from source, also use "make clean" after you're done with "make install"
It cleans up temporary files that were created during the compiling process to save disk space. Also, don't delete the makefile after you're done. You'll need it in case you need to uninstall the app later.
Just little things to keep in mind when using a source-based distribution
Which, 9 out of 10 times, doesn't work for me since there always some dependancy missing...
So I suggest you get hold of "apt-get" for RPM packages and use that since it takes care of everything for you. I love it.
thanks for the replys! i'm sure i'll figure this out eventually. also, is there anyway to change the resolution while in linux. i prefer 1024x760 but it set itself to 1280xsomething. thanks for any help you can give me.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
