and tell me, which professonials use pcs?? secretaries who use word to type in some texts?????
Most pros use pcs, that's how the market share of the pc/windows is much higher than that of mac, the home use of pcs can in no way account for a 90% share.

And as for secretaries, if macs are better, why didn't they get macs? Who cares what they need them for?

    You need to locate your XF86Config, sometimes named XF86Config-4 and change the settings.

    Code:
    # locate XF86Config
    /etc/X11/XF86Config-4
    # nano /etc/X11/XF86Config-4
    In the file, under Section "Screen" you should see various resolutions listed, just edit the list and change the default one. :)

    Great stuff:cool:

    thats why i put step in linux with fear.but i like its challenges.:excited:

    I've tried Lindows 2.0 and it's pretty strange really :D It installs pretty fast, sets up all your drivers, display, mouse, all the things that will normally make you struggle in Linux. It runs on Debian and KDE so you have the underlying Debian structure and functions. Once you've installed the OS and you're all set up, it's kind of like Windows, you have a start menu where you'll find settings, software etc. You also have a software distribution package, that is paying the $99 for Lindows gives you access to a wide variety of software, just click on it from the list, it will automatically download, install, configure. So it makes Linux simpler and more enjoyable I think.

    Here's a more in-depth review:

    I have a problem with arrays.

    Let's say I have arrays: 23,25,28,29,24,27

    How do I find the oldest person in the array. I have done something like this:

    public int oldest() {

    int old=arr[0]; // I know this line is wrong

    for(int i=0;i<objects;i++) {
    if (arr<old)
    old=arr;
    }
    return old;


    }

    YES! The thread is getting more geeky by the post, I like that! :devil::D

    I'm assuming you are trying to find the largest integer in the array, as opposed to its positioning within the array. I might suggest something like..

    Code:
    public int oldest() {
    
      int[] arr = {23,25,28,29,24,27}; //declare array
    
      int old=arr[0]; // looks ok to me
    
      for (int i=0;i<arr.length;i++) {
        if (arr[i]>old) // element i is greater than old, not smaller
          old=arr[i];
      }
      return old;
    
    }

      }
      return old;
    
    }
    Thanks! Just one more question. What if you don't know the numbers .

    Should it be like this then:
    int[] arr = arr

    too easy Martin, though your not very efficient....:p

    just a minor adjustment in the for loop since i'm a perfectionist..

    for (int i=1 ;i<arr.length;i++) {
    if (arr>old) // element i is greater than old, not smaller
    old=arr;
    }

    That should remove the unnessesary first check...;)

    :D

    Loppan, to declare an empty array you would have:
    int[] arr = new int[6];

    Majed, you're a jerk, I left it like that on purpose :p

    i assumed it was a compenent variable :p
    and it should have already been declarred in the constructor...

    Well, do you see a constructor? No? Well then let's TRY to keep things simple to suit the example at hand, shall we? ;)
