    Why do most of the Linux Distros have a crappy GUI?...I mean it's nowhere comparable to XP...except for Redhat and Suse.

    The main reason why i didn't like that screenshot, bcoz i saw something like voltmeter. I hv been using cubase/cakewalk, so i felt it musix interface, a bit odd.

    But still, I will try it. I am waiting for others to comment if they have used it.

    ^^ agree with u here.. i dont expect the freeware tools provided with it to be as pro as cakewalk ...
    the voltmeter-like thing is a meterbridge

    and u can see the To do list includes:

    Dwnlded it. It has a severe problem. If you run it, you won't be able to see any files on your hard disk(Alas! I cannot even play the music!). No problem with the sound and vdo drivers. The interface is poor and Right click does not work on desktop..
    Sound quality is excelent (Again! I can not even play the musics stored on HD:cry1:).
    Is there any tweak available to the problems??

    yeah you donot see the hard disk files bcoz musix will not 'mount' it ((its not a severe problem ... its intended to be that way)
    a possible tweak here will be to:
    1. find out the device name of your hard disk
    2. mount it

    for 1 run:
    dmesg|grep hd

    >> u mite get somethin like /dev/hda1
    in the oitput

    now for 2 (mounting):
    create a mountpoint:
    i)mkdir /mnt/xp
    mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/xp

    If the above command succeeds, then you can view ur hard disk files under /mnt/xp

    hope that helps ...btw that reminds me i've to burn the downloaded image into a cd!

    Hey 6 string, just wanted to tell you that i finally got Fedora Core 5 up and running. Sound is working, net is working and yum is working...yummy.

    sugata .. there's an easy way to get ur hard disk files listed:
    Just click on the desktop icon: 'mount all devices' :)

    woww congrats dennis! :beer:

    I installed musix and ....whoa was much better than i'd expected! -- umm everything worked at first go: sound, video, tv and even bluetooth gprs. I'll post some screenshots ..this distro has a plethora of recording, editing, drums, keyboard, music notation, guitar tutorials/self-test tools.... i liked it to the extent that I over-wrote my SuSe10 desktop on the hard disk and installed musix persistently!

    It has robust soundcard config tool -- supports multiple soundcard configurations at a time!!!!
    the negatives i think is: the distro is more of a spanish one ---so dont be surprised if you get some messages in spanish :) ...[to boot into english -- select english at the cd boot prompt...but still some spanish influence remains!]
    <<I'll post some screenshots ... later>>
