Amarok can run on Gnome Desktop (which is Ubuntu default desktop maanager) too but if you want a KDE based Ubuntu, get Kubuntu.

What kind of error? Didn't have problems with mine.

mkv files? Use MPlayer or VLC but make sure you got the gstreamer codecs installed.

not sure what error... but after reboot ubuntu can install already...

i tried various players like totem-gstreamer, totem-xine, mplayer and vlc to play mkv 1080p video but all have some stutter problem during playback. Playback on the same rig but in XP was smooth. Its like the players cant maximize my cpu and gpu performance during playback of 1080p. Is there any workaround for this?

Strictly speaking, you are a Fedora user, not Fedora-Core user. Starting from Fedora 7, Fedora Core and Fedora Extras repositories are merged.

Or are you using Fedora Core 1 - 6??  biggrin.gif  biggrin.gif

of course Fedora bro.

What's wrong with 'sudo'ing? I dont see any harm there. In fact I see 'sudo' better than 'su'.

Haha..me too have problems with using sudo. When I tested ubuntu, I really hate the need to sudo with every command. As you might have guessed, that is because I come from using redhat based linux and very used to using root user. So, I end up enabling root user in ubuntu and use root to login to my server.

Don't tell me about the security problem because redhat has been doing that for years and no problem with it. As for making mistakes using root directly? Non so far with my 8 years of using root user in linux.

The thing is, sudo might be good if you don't use command lines a lot. But when you need to type tons of commands daily, imagine the amount of time to type sudo. Let's say 1 sec to type sudo everytime. 1 day you might be typing like 100 sudo commands. That's 100 secs. You work 5 days a week, that would be 500 secs a week and 2000 secs a month.

You have wasted 2000 secs a month just to type sudo? That's 33.33 minutes.

if i know i'm going to be doing a lot of root-y stuff i just do sudo bash. not quite sure if there's any downside to it vs su but i haven't run into any so far.

Use 'sudo su' if you want to keep root access in BASH.

You won't be able to run MS Office on Ubuntu, you can try using wine to run it but I have never tried that myself. Most Linux distros includes OpenOffice for your word processing and financial spreadsheets requirement and it is compatible with MS Office documents.
