it seems fine.
But when screensaver is turned on, it is easy to hang...
Don't know why... :?:
Does anybody have the same problem with me?
So far, I have been using Windows based EDA tools.
I am beginning to explorer the power offered by Linux. I chose Redhat Linux 7.3 distribution. I have soome newbies questions.
Q1. Do I need to upgrade my Linux installation with the latest upgrade packages for this 7.3 release? Is there a readme on how to upgrade these packages on an existing Linux installation?
R1. Look at the EDA tool vendor´s website, and look for the recommended patchlevel. This is the same as for windose, you should stick to the vendors recommendation about service-pack.
Q2. Where do I find the upgrades for Redhat Linux 7.3?
R2. the up2date tool is available from the start menu. In the default redhat gnome-taskbar, an up2date applet a flashes a _big_ _red_ _exclamation mark_ icon when you have updates available. There again, the exact same thing as with winXP, except in more obvious.
Q1. Did you ever log in a redhat box ?
