I've been using mandrake linux 10.0 for a little while now... its really easy and all, but it just wont take any apps I try to install via source code...
./configure, make, make install just wont work on it.. (I'm guessing this is because its an RPM based distro)
I'm looking for something that's as easy as mandrake to setup and get running, but I would like it to be sourced based, I've had enough of this RPM based system now..
I've tried GENTOO, but I cant get past the installer since its still way out of my league.. I just simply dont have the linux know how to install a good system (yes, I was using the handbook and got pretty far into it, but i still have no clue on what modules to load, how to configure the kernel etc.. its just out of my league)
or if somebody can give me a really nice, simple to understand guide of how to install apps from source code into my mandrake linux I'll settle for that too
