a "n00b" since suse 6, my first post here


I'm not exactly a noob,

but we can definitely say I'm a chronic flounderer (sp) :-)

I can most definitely say I've made enough mistakes of my own to be willing to ask questions.

I run many distro, mostly familiar with debian (:sigh but have had some (HAPPY!!) experience with ARCH and and looking to Gentoo.

My FIRST question is, WHERE to apropriately post my questions, say I'm having a pickle in ARCH, where do I post that question so as best to get prompt informative response?

ditto please for respecting distro's.

Thank you so much for allowing me aboard. I hope to eventually be able to contribute help to others...

THANKS

Some well meant advice: Degrading both Debian and Ubuntu will not help you in getting better replies(...and sounds a bit childish).
Keep those things for your personal blog instead of your profile.

good advice jens,

cannot help my sorrow with regards to Debian. Actually, I've found a little known distro that I'm pretty impressed with (sparky) ... my "angst" is with regards to, when searching the interwebs for reference to solving my frequent problems, all to often the "results" are swamped with references to "ubuntu" which I just wont run. And all to often the solutions regarding ubuntu do not really pertain to PURE DEBIAN...

I'm pretty good with search engine operators, but have yet to derive how to omit all results with "ubuntu" in them ...

::sigh::

no offense intended. I'll now refrain from any further opines.

All the bes...

Thanks Shadow,

I'll ask my ARCH ?? there.

I'm not utter n00b with Arch, I love it. I've run Netrunner, didn't do to well with BlueStar.

I'm thinking my best bet is to go with PLAIN Arch since I'm determined to learn it.

Thanks again
slowride

minus sign, no space

search keyword query -what_you_want_omitted -what_else_omitted

This is the only "advanced" search feature I have ever remembered. It may be different in other search engines, but if you use google, that's the trick.

I've tried a few distros over the years. But I always end up back on debian eventually. I even tried arch, and it was nice until X crashed in the middle of gaming in under 2 hours. There was also some weird font issue if you booted to the command line. X almost never crashes in debian so back I went. I started on SuSE with version 6.1. That was a nice distro, until you wanted something not provided by the distro and nothing on the TLDP applied because of all the administration scripting. And then version 7 came out and it wouldn't install on my vaio laptop because it locked up when it probed pcmcia. Mandrake 7.2-ish at the time failed for the same reason. Which put me in the direction of debian. A couple floppies and push enter 50 times and off to the races. I did eventually get SuSE 7 to install by using the floppy disk and the older YaST tool, but debian was so much nicer for me. Especially back in the dialup days.
