People want their problem solved, not another distro.

Posted 02-17-2017 at 09:57 AM by goumba

I've really been trying hard not to post this. Really, but it gets harder each day.

One trend I've noticed growing on LQ lately.

Newbie posts their problem. "I can't get X working on distro Y."

A response from certain (many senior) users, "You don't want distro Y. You want to install distro Z. It's super fantabulous, lightweight, based on distro ZZ, and oh by the way nothing I have to say here solves your problem."

How to build LibreOffice 3.6.7.2 in Slackware 14.2 (in 2017)

Posted 02-15-2017 at 12:34 PM by Yury_T

This build was done on Slackware64 14.2 with some additional packages installed. Considering the build instruments in Slackware, this should be replicatable on any non-Slackware installation.
