Ah, this is what I missed for all this time.... a sense of community! LQ has shown me the way again, after years of Windows slaving, it is time to return to the fold. I even got me very own blog now!

A brand new distro will be downloaded, and it will be installed.

I ran across this a while ago and was reminded of it recently. I'm placing it here for safe keeping in case I ever need to do a full install of gnome to compile a program just to find the 26 specific dependencies it needs so that everything else can be uninstalled (did I say gnuCash? you lie! it works on all modern OS's... well except for slackware

objdump -x $1 | grep NEEDED

First blog, First Linux, 32 years of computing!

Posted 12-02-2008 at 11:30 PM by DarkFlame

Being that I've done about 32 yrs of computing, & I'm delving into Linux for the 1st time (& using OpenSuSE), & that this website has been so helpful to me, I thought I'd blog to post my thoughts about this journey.

1st, I'll say I've always thought Blogs were trivial & Bloggers had inflated egos. Me thinking my thoughts are important to someone else is a prime example of my own over-inflated ego. So, it is doubtful I'll allow any comments on my Blog, tho I'll read...

Another Go at Arch

Posted 12-02-2008 at 07:30 PM by vectordrake

I'm going to try and install Arch Linux again. I really enjoyed having it on my computer before. It was snappy and relatively easy to install. I had first installed it with Fluxbox and quickly moved to XFCE, which I had for a short while. After that, I gave the KDEmod a try and I really liked what that could do. But, I am really liking Gnome lately for the reasons that I liked KDE before, so I might try to get a Gnome system running. Perhaps, I will see how functional I can make it, as far...
