14:24 < Taz> Src stands for what?
14:24 * foureyes779 sits here and watches Q-collective sit there
14:25 < Taz> hey foureyes what does Src stand for?
14:25 < foureyes779> Taz: more than likely it's Source
14:25 < Taz> that is what i think as well
14:25 < Taz> what about Bin?
14:26 < foureyes779> where are you seeing that at ?
14:26 < Taz> i am trying to setup Cygwin
14:26 < jinXKat> ah ha
14:26 < foureyes779> fun...
14:29 < Taz> yeah i will install all of it
14:29 < foureyes779> the nice thing abt Cygwin is the porting of linux/unix commands
14:30 < Taz> yeah last time i was trying to use make and i then found out that i hadnt
14:30 < foureyes779> you can also run KDE with Cygwin now
14:30 < Taz> yeah but what is the command
14:30 < foureyes779> startx
14:31 < Taz> hmm...
14:31 < Taz> how do u go about using cygwin as in how do i go and find out about the
14:31 < Taz> is there an online manual?
14:32 < jinXKat> www.google.com
14:32 < jinXKat> :-)
14:32 < Taz> lol
NB: Translation: Use the SRC Luke
14:40 < Taz> in linux how do u change the drive that one is on?
14:40 < jinXKat> huh
14:40 < jinXKat> get a screwdriver
14:40 < jinXKat> or was that drink a screwdriver
14:40 < Taz> from C drive to D
14:41 < Taz> hey
14:41 < Q-collective> jinXKat: a what?
14:41 < jinXKat> a screwdriver
14:41 < Q-collective> .google screwdriver
14:41 <@Sydney-Bristow> http://twig.screwdriver.net/
14:41 < Taz> hey tell me mam
14:41 < jinXKat> http://www.drinknation.com/drink/Screwdriver
14:42 < Q-collective> jinXKat: heh
14:42 < jinXKat> forget you ruined the entire pun of both sentences
14:42 < Taz> so how to u change the drive then
14:43 < Squall`> Taz, Linux does have a 'c drive' or a 'd drive'
14:43 < Q-collective> doesn't*
14:43 < Squall`> err, thanks
14:43 < Taz> as in change the partition
14:43 < Taz> on the hard driven
14:43 < Taz> drive*
14:43 < Squall`> your hard disks are located at /dev
14:43 < Squall`> they start with /dev/hda
14:43 < Squall`> and go down from there
14:43 < Q-collective> /dev/hda1 /dev/hda2 etc
14:44 < Taz> i am confused
14:44 < jinXKat> thts why you should use linux not cygwin
14:44 < Taz> yeah
14:44 < jinXKat> he he
14:44 < Q-collective> linux doesn't have a seperate tree
14:44 < Q-collective> it has 1 tree
14:44 < Squall`> a is the first hard disk, 1 means the first partition
14:44 < jinXKat> well a distro anyways
14:44 < Taz> what does dev stand for
14:44 < Squall`> device
14:45 < Taz> oh now i get it all
14:45 < Q-collective> Taz: however, /dev are just the devices, you don't write to them.
When you want to use the partitions, you can mount them
14:45 < Taz> what about file:/ ??
14:45 < Squall`> file:/ is a URI
14:45 < Squall`> not a location
14:45 < Taz> how do i change the directory in the shell to that URL then
14:45 < Q-collective> /dev/hdb4 is a location
14:46 < Q-collective> :)

22:34 < DoppleGanger> how strange a download manager
22:34 < DoppleGanger> DieRatte: sure do
22:34 < DieRatte> well, what else do you need then
22:35 < jedi0473> well i used the 1 that comes with mozilla
22:35 < morph_> jedi0473: please explain what exactly it is you are looking for... we
get easily confused around here :-)

22:36 < DieRatte> works fine in opera
22:36 < morph_> I have no problems with firefox
22:36 < jedi0473> so i have to start all over again
22:36 < DoppleGanger> sounds like a fedora problem to me
22:36 < jedi0473> perhaps i need to reinstalled
22:36 < DoppleGanger> how did you install firefox
22:36 < jedi0473> yep
22:37 < jedi0473> it seems s
22:37 < DieRatte> jedi0473, there are very few things in linux that requiere a reinstall
