Your newsreader seem to work. Now, how about your sound card?

You haven't? On my system, Ubuntu was a big piece of **** to get it
working. Gentoo? No dice. RedHat, sUse, Fedora, all crap. I got it
working in Slack.

I've got other fish to fry first before I tackle sound. It worked ok with
OpenSolaris But 5.10 is a bit different. I'm just trying to waste some
time and further my education anyways. I might try 5.10 in Win 7 Oracle VB
too. I like to be able to test this **** out without a permanent
commitment.

Let me know the score. I always found getting sound to work in *nix a
bitch.

Best card unfortunately is an old ISA Sound Blaster 16. The newer nix
flavors are catching up slowly with PnP stuff but still woefully
inadequate. Solaris 10 uses a funny mix of Gnome and Java for a desktop
environment. Or you can use the CDE. I think Solaris 10 is perfect for an
enterprise solution and it comes with a full suite of A/V apps. Flash
video from Youtube was smooth and glitch-free even at full screen. NVidia
support was also present as are 2 and 3D acceleration.

For what I do, Solaris would be an easy migration to. Would have to see
if I could get Pan to compile on it or use Oracle VM box on it and install
Puppy Linux inside just for Pan. Fun stuff for sure.

I installed Be back in 2000, everything worked. Didn't **** with that
idiotic Haiku. I have everything working in FreeBSD, OpenSolaris and
haven't ****ed with Solaris 10's sound yet. **** you and your ladygirl
bullshit and get back to me when you've installed real operating systems
like SCO, Novell, Solaris etc..as I have, bitch.

The Fedora version actually works (pulse audio?), but coders only
managed to deliver two settings -- ear-splitting blast and 'dead silence'.

That describes quite well what I meant. My test box is running Slack
right now, and I managed to get everything to work *reasonably* properly.
Even Skype works now.
