Just to balance the reports from people with troubles, I want to report that
this installation (from the cdrom version) went smoothly ... and has assumed
the role of desktop in my shack. My machine is not state-of-the-art ...
being a 1.3 MHz pentium with a 40 gig hard drive, a 64 meg video card, 256
Meg of RAM ... and its own cd-writer (52 speed). For extras I have a USB
scanner ... and a set of amplified speakers plus a HP 5L printer on the
Everything has worked from the outset ... requiring very little fiddling ...
I have downloaded additional software using automatix2 ... and a couple of
amateur radio programs. For personal preference I replaced OpenOffice with
Koffice. My screen is a Samsung brand LCD ... which gives me a handy 1024 by
768 by 24 colours.
I have downloaded a couple of updates using Adept ... with success.
Now if I could remove KWallet without taking the desktop ... I'd be really
happy. This beast sits behind a firewall on my router ... and I am prepared
to put a software firewall on it as well. I am the only user ... so
KWallet's nagging is a pest and an abomination ...!
I am very pleased with 6.10!!
My other desktop is a **slower** iMac (350 MHz) ... and the ppc version of
6.10 was working smoothly there too! It's just a bit too slow writing disks
at 4x on the USB writer! The usb to parallel interface works the 5L printer
