WAAAAHOOOO!October 10, 2006
After however many months of trying to bend Linux to my will and do my bidding, namely trying to get online, I have finally done it. Using Puppy Linux 2.10 to get this crippled laptop working, I am coming to you LIVE!
Sort of live, anyway.
The difference was, in fact, what I said suring my last post; the AT&T proprietary software that only works with Windows had some information I had to dig out of it.
It still took a few rounds to get Puppy to play nice with my modem but hopefully that battle is behind me. Thanks to the three of you following my trials tribulations and escapades with getting connected at home, which is such a key thing. While I got every distro to work at work, I had other things to do at work like…you know…work!
Now I’ll have to see what I can get this puppy to do. I still want WINE to work because quite frankly, Linux games suck. Frozen buble can be sort of addictive, but I’m more partial to RTS games although frozen bubble can be addictive in its own way.
