Linux

Who doesn't like, that Linux makes a damage on your bootloader when you install Linux, you could use a LiveCD or you can install Linux in a program called "Virtual Box".

VirtualBox is a computer in the computer. You can appoint to Linux different hardware with this programm and then you can install Linux on a concluded virtual harddrive.
I've installed OpenSuse 11.1 on this VirtualBox and I'm very content.
For example I made the beta test of Windows 7 on the VirtualBox, because it makes it easier to test unsafe operating systems without that your normal system will get any damage.

So for all who haven't a
partition for Linux or want to test Windows 7, download Virtual Box.

Temperature problems

One week ago, I got temperature problems with my computer.
The average temperature of my processor is 40-45°C, what shouldn't make any problems.
But from one day to the other the temperature increased to 55°C. This was too warm.
So I decided to insert a additional fan which blows cold air into the case.
But this didn't led to any success. So I had no idea what to do and I've put a big ventilating fan
in front of the open case and the processor temperature decreased to 46°C.
And yesterday I made a new install of my operating system with formating the hard disk and everything
what belongs to it. And what a surprise now the temperature of the processor stays at 40°C without the big
ventilating fan in front of the case.
So if you have problems with your processor temperature, make a new install of your operating system before you buy
a new processor fan.
