So many distros...

Posted 08-13-2008 at 08:11 AM by Eredeath

Ubuntu-->Slackware-->Arch...

I started off on Ubuntu and got to know Linux in what I feel is its least complicated form. Everything was nicely compiled for me from after downloading from the universe, almost never had to touch the console, nice GUI to log in with and shutdown with… utterly boring! I learned very little.

So off I went searching for a distro that I can learn Linux on, and found Slackware, the oldest running Linux distro. Slackware does not have...

Introduction

Posted 08-13-2008 at 07:41 AM by Eredeath

Since I have a blog on here, it makes sense to make some use of it. Never having a blog before this is going to be very experimental. I plan on structuring this blog as a journal of my Linux experience. Hopefully people will find this blog helpful and/or entertaining reading about my struggles and triumphs.

Enjoy

David Tangye's Linux blogs

Posted 08-13-2008 at 06:17 AM by DavidTangye

Instalation

Posted 08-12-2008 at 06:07 PM by budulay

I think it's logical to start with instalation issues. There were just a few of them, but still...
BTW, here is the step-by-step instalation guide.

A)Live CD
The first thing I did before installing Vector is downloaded and burned VL Live CD to make sure VL is what I need. After running Live CD without problems on my main box - Dell Latitude CPI A366XT(P2 366 MHZ, 128 MB RAM, 6 GB HDD).
But, when I tryed to run it on 3 other mashines, on two of them it has problems...

Telnet to Windows from *nix

Posted 08-12-2008 at 02:47 PM by grepmasterd

I've had varying results, but in some setups I've noticed that I cannot
invoke a usable telnet session to a windows telnet server (running
Microsoft's native telnet server). The return key doesn't work and the
characters I type are sent in chunks. I've mainly run into this behavior
when I've configured the windows telnet server to run on a non-standard
port, like port 923.

To address the issue, update /etc/telnetrc or a .telnetrc in your home...
