frugalware


Any SLACKERS using or trying out Frugalware? It has been for 2 mo+ as stable as SLW10.1 and more so than Xandros3, Libranet3 and Vector 5.1 on both my pcs. And everythng works after following SLW setup guide lines- like for example xorg.conf. It even comes with 2.6.12 kernel and recognizes my scsi zip disk; and cdrecorder and dvdrecorder are working after 1st boot . It also comes with Nvidia driver install script. Easy. (Cant get Nvidia to work in Sarge or SLW yet.) Pacman is easy to use and learn.
If someone is using FW, have you been able to login to their forum? I am a member of FW forum but cannot login. Maybe some file is setup improperly that prevents login. And you can steer me in fight direxn?. I use Verizon DSL.
Something to make you say hmmmm.
