Subject description: an in-depth look into video, sound and networking problems and fixes


Linux newbies are faced with a learning curve and are faced with some common and not-so-common problems, this guide will walk you through some fixes for video, sound and networking problems.

samba the easy way :

Conclusion :
This last section is a bit of a "catch all" for everything not covered above. Meaning if you have a question not addressed already, you can use the following tips to get the answer you need. Ready? Here we go.

1) Provide useful information about your affected hardware when seeing assistance. For example, which do you think is more useful? "I can't seem to load any webpages with my Atheros wifi card even though I'm told that the connection is successful." vs "My wifi isn't working." Guess which question is more likely to be solved? The first one, any day of the week.

2) Google for a solution before asking. Look, most of the issues people experience with Linux, Windows or OS X has been examined at length. So use a search engine and try finding a solution before flooding the forums with a redundant question that may have already been answered.

A quick look at some of these.

Not so good for Puppy. Shocked

Puppy is Linux, but Puppy does a lot of things, the Puppy way, using Puppy specific programs and scripts.

Ubuntu troubleshooting is good for Ubuntu, not Puppy. Exclamation

Thanks for trying to offer help for Puppy troubleshooting problems, but most of this info is not going to work in Puppy. Exclamation

The things they do not tell you, are usually the clue to solving the problem.
When I was a kid I wanted to be older.... This is not what I expected Shocked
