    Re: Konqueror vs. Firefox - your take?

    <off topic>

    You could try to fix that by selecting to use "konqueror" as the main browser in kcontrol > KDE components > Component chooser (might be other words, my KDE isn't English...).

    Re: request: Amarok 1.3

    I don't think it's a good idea to backport a beta version (considering that the amaroK devs themselves consider beta1 to be of _alpha_ quality). AFAIK, beta 2 will be released this weekend, and it's...

    Re: HOWTO: Enable DMA for a device

    Be a bit careful with enabling DMA on older CD-players, they can (and probably will) break, or just not work right.
    Enabling DMA on my CD recorder (I would guess it's about 5 years old), seem to...

    Re: Hotwo: avoid having to reboot!

    Some quick notes:

    1. A lot of the init.d scripts also have a 'reload' action (e.g. "sudo /etc/init.d/samba reload") which just reloads the conf file. All of them doesn't work without restarting...

    I thionk that Gnome is more lightweight in terms of memory usage, but I'm not sure. For me, KDE is the only choice, because of some annoying performance problems with gnome/gtk, the nvidia driver and...
