Hi!
Why all the capital? I surely can understand your enthusiams as pardus is the coolest OS at the moment.
Games like Call of duty can be run with Wine/ Cedega or crossover office 6. But there are already lots of games for Linux, most are free and are in the repository, like Open Arena or Nexiuz which are excellent FPS's. When you can only boot in the text modus, your videocard is probably not recognised.
Which one do you have?

for my nvidia 7300gt, i upgraded using the regular [not new or old] nvidia kernel,nvidia glx,and nvidia tools---followed by the nvidia xconfig method described here  http://worldforum.pardus-linux.nl/viewtopic.php?t=2  results?javascript:emoticon(':twisted:') a crispy clear display. but i dont see the nvidia console to configure sli? or to even see if both video cards are active. my screen is at 1280x1024 and i'm "only" getting refresh rates options of 50 and 54? its at 50 right now. is this cool?` ------------ Is there a command or list of commands that i should consider typing in when a login fails [as i mentioned in my first post] instesd of just reinstalling pardus all over again?? --------------------------- its the only know how i knowjavascript:emoticon(':wink:')
