does anyone know of a legitimate reason why ATT DSL does not support
I recently worked on my neighbor's a HP Ze2000. It was loaded with
Winblows XP with only 256 meg of ram. I cleansed his system of the foul
smell which emanated from his hard drive and installed Xbuntu 8.04.
has a little problem with the wifi but I got it figured out and was able
to connect to his DSL modem with no prob. got a nice ping from his ISP
so communication had been established. However when firefox was
launched for the first time the homepage was redirected to a AT&T
website saying there was a problem and that we should call tech
support....on hold...on hold....(my dinner's getting cold) sing it with
me! I take off to eat dinner and while I am gone AT&T calls back, of
course, so my neighbor handles the call...long story short the tech
support guy says that AT&T doesn't support Linux. what is there for an
ISP to support its the same DAMN Internet ARGGGGGGG!!!! I hate lazy tech
support people! Now I have to use my afternoon tomorrow to talking to
AT&T for my neighbor anyone have any ideas how to handle my next
encounter with AT&T?
sorry for the rant I hate to get it off my chest.
