Have just installed pclos 2012.08 completely from scratch. It's quite a while since I did that before.
1. Went to Internet to find out how to change hostname, and it said to do "hostname newname" so I did "hostname Linux1"
Now I have lost the Konsole altogether. I cannot get to it at all. How do I get it back, and how do I change hostname once
I do have it back?
2. I need to install the NVidia driver for a GeForce 550Ti card. I downloaded the latest NVidia driver, but the filename, which is
supposed to be self-extracting, ends with .run and when I try and run it by just entering the filename, I get the complaint
that the system doesn't know the command run. (I tried it from root.)
Alternatively, I could use one of the NVidia drivers that synaptic has, but I don't know what kind of card the 550Ti is, to satisfy
the requirements of the available file--there are three! I need to do something--I'm going blind trying to read the display
without the high resolution!
All help greatly appreciated--doug
