Tabula Rasa

[ #4611 ]
Fed up with Suse's lack of gcc, my TV tuner failing under Windows, and the screwed up file associations in BeOS, I did what any fed-up computer geek would do - I wiped the hard drive and reloaded everything.

Windows 98 didn't like things so much the second time around. We'll see how it goes. I can honestly say the first time around I didn't see a single BSOD. Hopefully, that trend will continue. I'm a bit concerned, though, since now I don't seem to be getting sound in the TV tuner.

Suse 8.0 was replaced with Mandrake 8.2. The TV tuner seems to work. I accidentally had the VCR on, so at first I thought Mandrake had stuck some kind of jingle in the startup, but it turned out to be a TV commercial. Oh, and I have a copy of Suse 8.0 for sale - cheap.

I'll be re-installing BeOS tonight, which shouldn't take long. I'm gonna take it easy on the software this time, and only install those apps that I know I'll use - Process Controller, SoundPlay, StripZilla and BeShare.
