"le TAR noeveau est arrvé"(*)

Posted 09-09-2011 at 01:18 PM by ButterflyMelissa

Well, installing TAR was an easy one...snag...I've been at it for some time not that "I dont knoz zhere the keys qre qny,ore", but that'll pass ... I hope ...

TTYLinux is configged in QWERTY, hence...

Persisting on a stick may not be the way forward. I've got something that could help with the remastering, but a full install is not wise as not every PC can boot of a stick, at least not the ones I've got...

So, wised up, I'm looking for an empty...

If you have internet connection then .. You will have no problems at all for installing any new software in debian. But sometimes internet doesn't belong to you due to various reasons like::

Living the Slackware, and LOVING IT!

Posted 09-08-2011 at 07:18 PM by Z_Tagr

Thursday, Sept. 8th, 2011

I have been learning the "ropes" of Linux AND Slackware now since around the first of July, and am coming along quite well, I think!

I have been studying many different kinds of bash scripts, leaning heavily towards the "Slackbuild" scripts, as I was a tad familiar with the:

"./configure --prefix=/usr", "make" and "make install"

The main plan

Posted 09-08-2011 at 02:10 PM by ButterflyMelissa


Every project needs a roadmap, so does mine. Just a checklist so as not to skip/forget anything

- boot the PC with stick & CDrom
- get networking up and going
- make a user
- set the root pass
- make a symlink from the /home folder (in memory at that time) to the /home folder on the stick - the user already existed...
- change to the user
- do the ./configure and make of every dependency
- become Root

Linux Family

Posted 09-08-2011 at 12:11 PM by blogfan247

I like linux and applaude all that contribute to the "linux cause" meaning any progression toward linux success!!!
I may be a newbie but, that really matters less now than it did before I learned more about the opensource;free software foundation;windows 7 sins and the many strides programmers in conferences have educated/shared the knowledge with more fans of this movement. Share your thoughts with me if you would those love linux. I can't wait for the bright future that awaits
