I hope this works for you.

Re: [LINUX_Newbies] What computer should I buy?

 

I bet you get a lot of replies to this one.    There are may opinions and things to consider. 

I like the Dell brand.   The reason is simple.   Dell comes with excellent diagnostic utilities built-in.   Often, if problems arise, it may be difficult to separate hardware issues from software issues.   With Dell, it is often very easy to spot hardware problems by pressing the f12 keys --- and let the computer spot its own hardware problems.  

By pressing the f12 key when you see the Dell  logo- a dell computer will go into a diagnostic mode.  You can run a variety of diagnostic checks and quickly spot hardware problems.  

Today, I was having a trouble hearing the sound out of an old Dell Dimension 4600.   I pressed f12 and ran a sound diagnostic.  I immediately heard a sound in the speaker.   This eliminated hardware problems and told me to focus on software.    I found the problem  a short time later.

Hope this helps

Justin

Subject: [LINUX_Newbies] What computer should I buy?

 
 
I would like to devote a single computer to Linux only.  Not sure what distribution I'll go with yet.  But my first problem is what hardware should I buy to use as my Linux station.
 
I do NOT want to build from scratch.
I do NOT want to pay a small forturne for the best PC out there.
I DO want a PC that works well as a Linux workstation.
I DOUBT I will do much graphics and such and definitely won't be doing gaming or other CPU demanding work.
I WILL likely be using other programs that deal with audio processing.
I plan to use this workstation mostly for learning Linux.
I would prefer to buy something locally, at Best Buy, Frys, etc, rather than online.
Whatever I buy should be ready to go.  I don't want to have to start removing and adding anything (hardware wise).
 
These area bout the only requirements I have at the moment.
 
Suggestions on a computer?

Re: : [LINUX_Newbies] VLC in Mint 17

 

UEFI, if you haven't dual boot with it, can be very hard to get it done. Android is Linux but with an Yes and No.
You can not run Linux programs on Android or Android programs on Linux. It can not be done without hours of loading what is needed. Some one who does not know how or what is needed will be lost.

Again with Windows UEFI, some one who does not know how or what is needed will be lost. And that is why Apple gets away with what they do. They give you all the tools you need to dual boot. Windows UEFI and Android don't.

[LINUX_Newbies] VLC

 

Folks, this horse isn`t dead yet. I`ve tried,tried,tried,.................. My point ? VLC and Youtube are widely used in business as tools for presentation to business clients. Windows plays VLC and Youtube videos very well.
I can use my Macs also in this endeavour. Sigh! One of my four AsRock computers works well with VLC and Youtube. Three do not. Maybe,just maybe,there will be a solution for this. Meanwhile, I do what I must do.
I have Linux, Microsoft,and Mac. I use that which works. I`m still here. I don`t give up easily. I continue to to try.

If you want to go very inexpensive, newegg.com usually has good refurbs some even less than $100.
