i know debian hits a little hard on the newbies life, specially when using woody
and installing new software from source as you always have to update a lot of packages...
but is the best distro to really learn from, installing Mandrake 10 or something has turned out
to be very GUI and Windows like ( of course we all like that) but i really want to understand
whats going on backstages. i tryed slackware at first and then Mandrake 9.2(iguess) and
went back to debian to find out it was somehow similar to slack as for the dificulties that
setting them up properly represents for newbies.
anyway ill keep searching for the solution to my problem even though im gonna try a diferent
aproach: apt-pinning to sid.
i know this has a lot of disadvantages and that it creates an very unstable system
but me being kinda newb means i dont need hardcore security nor stability, and that
i can do a fresh install as many times as i need to learn something.
of course i know thats a wrong aproach to solve the problems cuz in a future
fresh install wont be an option so ill wait and check on this thread hoping
someone would aid me on this subject.
btw im not using the Binaries for Firefox .9
im also doing the apt-pinning to test out the nvdrivers and the whole install process
cuz i had an issue with the headers on woody
