    I cant seem to install AMD radeon software

    @BigCapitalist - I would defer to friend @f33dm3bits 's question first, if you respond to that. The likely answer to your question, is with the syntax of your folder structure. Linux does not like spaces. Rename your AMD Drivers subfolder to either AMD-Drivers or AMD_Drivers and repeat the...

    I cant seem to install AMD radeon software

    G'day @BigCapitalist and welcome to linux.org :) I may not be the one to help you but I'll ask a couple of questions that may assist others to help. What Linux are you using, and version, eg Ubuntu Desktop 20.04.1, Linux Mint 20 Cinnamon? Can you give us the specs for your rig, eg brand name...

    First observations and some heresy

    Reasonable questions :), best asked and answered in Forum, rather than here, so that all may benefit. If you have a small number of similar questions, you can start a Thread in General Linux, and if you have questions on the Command Line (Scripting would be included with these), then Command...

    Repository Issue with LMDE 4

    A quick Google reveals that Fedora 32 has Xiphos 4.2.1 available to it, released May this year. When I look at it, I can try converting the .rpm to .deb using Alien and see if it gets indigestion. Wiz

    Repository Issue with LMDE 4

    I can take a look through Fedora between now and the end of my weekend, if it will help? Alex, what is the oldest version of the product that you will find acceptable? Wiz

    New user saying hello :)

    Damn, that wrecks my pun - "which does not bow-day well" :D, scratch one for the Wizard. Wondered with your career, and particularly COBOL, whether you had any involvement with the Y2K influence on programming? Wiz

    BTW - I have no idea what a bodeplot is ... but then I have lost the plot, which does not bode well. (I could have helped that)

    G'day Jason from yet another Aussie - I am from Stanthorpe (Applethorpe) in the curly bit of the QLD/NSW border. I approved your Nighthawk Thread the other day when it came across my desk for some reason. Had I known you were Aussie of course I would have rolled out the red carpet ;) We hope...

    Any free course on SQL database managing through command line on Linux?
