Post by <pa.. » Mon, 30 Sep 1996 04:00:00


i just have a few questions,

first off is there a place were i can get info on using the svgalib's
. I can't seem to find info in the man, how-to's or what not..
I also would like to ask all of the the matox users out there, if there
is a way to "upgrade" svgalib to work with my matrox mga? i use seejpeg
and it always gives me a message about the chipset and then the res is
very bad.

and finaly,
how can i set the permisions for i/o to the screen, when i try to use
abuse, seejpeg and what not it dies with a cannot get i/o permisions.
I don't want to just try a bunch of permions. What do i have to chmod it

thanx a ton,

1. QUESTION: Getting ready to use Linux, but I have a few questions...

        Alright, well first, for anyone who is taking the time for
reading this, Thank You. Even if you can't help me, it is still a good
thing that you try. Anyway, I'm getting ready to install Linux on my
system, mostly out of general frustration bordering on hate for
Windows and Microsoft in general (gotta give 'em points for dumbing
things down for the layman, but I'm not a layman anymore). Yet, as I
have a new computer, I have more than a few issues with doing this.

1)      I have a 8.4 Gig. HD, but it is in Fat16 format, so that
should be okay, right?

2)      With my HD, I can use the program fips to partition it without
having to format it in the process, but the problem I have is that the
drive is split into 4 logical drives, as a result of the 2 Gig limit
on Fat16. So my question is, can I partition a logical drive, and if I
can, how? (and if I can't, then what are my options...?)

3)      Will Debian Linux (and X-Windows) be compatible with my
Diamond FireGL Pro 1000?

Once again, thank you very much for any help that you might give. If I
have, in any way, broken the laws of this group or have annoyed anyone
with this post, I sincerely apologize, as I have not come here before.
