Subject: [Gramps-users] Please, Can Someone Help with Eee PC & Gramps
Content-Type: text/plain; format=flowed
Greetings: I have an Eee PC 8G model running Xandros Linux. I would rather not switch to Ubuntu because I have heard of some people having problems with various things after doing so. I simply would like to load Gramps onto the Eee, and run it.
But I know nothing of computers except emailing and surfing the net. I see instructions for running Gramps on the Eee, but they look like nstructions that a computer whiz would understand.
Sure can. First of all you shouldn't assume that just because you can turn the EeePC on you won't need to learn anything else! ;-) Google is your friend!
Go to http://wiki.eeeuser.com/howto:beginners_guide for simple step by step directions regarding those tools you mentioned. BTW that wiki is just chock full of good information.
On the Gramps wiki you'll find more detailed directions specifically for your machine http://gramps-project.org/wiki/index.php?title=Gramps_on_the_Eee
After working your way through those references ask more specific questions here.
