Hey man, i logged out of KDE and clicked on restart X server, but it didnt
work, so itried again and still no gnome in menu selection,
I am running suSe Linux 8.1 professional. Thank you for trying though:) anyone
else know how? i mean i know i could if i reformatted and reinstalled Linux
but i really REALLY dont wanna have to, because iv put so much into my
system, and i do have a nice uptime going right now and iv updated and
everything soo im up to date also and im really enjoying Linux alot:) also if
i reformate i dont know if Linux would find my souncard again, i had this
problemm with it and so i bought a Soundblaster but the tech who installed it
said that he used a driver of theres i think, so i dont know if Linux would
find and configure it or not, anyway enough of me babbling lol im hoping
someone else can help me, again though thank you all for reading, and also
Thank you all for being so helpfull all the time, it gives me great pride
knowing that im involved in a community that takes care of each other, most
countries cant even say that lol, so everyone, give yourself a pat on the
back :)
