frugalware


Hope this is ok forum. For 2 mo I have been trying Frugalware 0.2. It has been stable; programs work out of box with little editing--including NVidia driver install and setup. And I can watch dvds and listen to cds straight off. My scsi zip drive was setup during install. Having SLW10.1 and learning from it about fstab and etc/rc.d, etc made the transition to FW easier. Pacman has been pretty good too and easy to learn.
FW forums are helpful. There is ample documentation, help files and review articles. The only problem I have had is being able to login to the forum after setting up acct. Confirmation email never arrived but I am listed as member. Maybe it's a problem with Verizon and how mail is address. I noted one FW member's email address had name_at_provider instead of name@provider. Dont know.
FW is run by young students/pros in Hungary. I think they respond to help requests by others aptly.
My main interest in writing this note is to encourage more FW users and to maybe setup a forum here at LQ.org where ha-ha I can login easily.
Let me just add SLW stays on pc. It hasn't crashed yet and everything just works. Along with X3 and L3. Thanx

If I read that right, you are requesting a Frugalware subforum. We only start a distro forum if the distro themselves are willing to support the forum - this can just mean having a team member sign up and help answer questions in the forum.

I would suggest that you politely email the Frugalware team and ask that they approach Jeremy with a view to setting up a sub-forum in the Linux-Distributions forum.

Strictly a guess, but it looks like that site uses cookies, and your PC may be rejecting them. Clear any cookies you have from that site, clear your browser cache, and give it another shot. Again, this is strictly a guess on my part -- J.W.

FW f/up

Thanx for cookies hint. Tried banning cookies after clearing cache and allowing cookies under firefox and konqueror but no login to FW. After banning cookies could not login to linux questions either. Go figure.
Thought maybe the miltary grade encryption is problem. Any Verizon Dsl users out there that can login to FW forum?
Did sent developer email regarding subforum for FW. Thanx.

This thread is also going in the Slackware forum, so I'll close this one.
