If you had used the very useful search function, you would have found this thread that answers your question.

Search is usualy crap, if the search you do dosen't contain just the right words then no results. any way my "why is there no pclinux section" turned up nothing, so my thread.

You know, when you post a thread, there's a button that says, "Click here to find similar threads" and guess what? It works.

The search function works fine. I found two or three threads similar to yours within seconds when I searched for "PCLinuxOS forum". Also if you look at the bottom of this page there are threads similar to yours and one of them already has the answer to your question.

Since the search function works quite well, it could be that its a bit difficult for you to choose the right words or phrases to search for. I used to have the same problem until I figured out how search engines work and how to refine the words I am looking for so that I get better results.

Didn't notice the thing, however I did do a search first and it found no results. Sorry to offended some to the point of sarcasm. The threads shown from the posted links only seem to dance arround the subject anyway, so would seem there is no answer,at least from any who know. Thanks anyway for the replies.

There are quite a few sites dedicated to this distro, in addition to the official one. The MyPCLinuxOS site working on specialist projects around the distro (including the magazine), TheLoveOfLinux on PCLOS Hardware Compatibility. There is also a little-used "Advanced Hacks" forum at GeekTimeLinux. But for most purposes, the official forum is more than good enough.

Since there is already one of these here: https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...d.php?t=496191 and that one is in the most appropriate forum, this one is closed.
