We were very happy to have the forum here.

Helping our users is a big priority for us.

As alot of our "new users/Slackware users" are already familiar with LQ it was a logical choice.

I remember when I depepended heavily on the Slackware forum here in the past and I was never disapointed with the great amount of helpful people here.

LQ is a great place with friendly people and Jeremy is a great guy.

I saw that. I was looking around the Zenwalk Website and Saw that your contribution was tremendous AxXium. I am trying to get my linux skills up to par and hopefully I can start making major contributions.

Linux skills come with time and work. The fastest way to sharpen those skills is to throw fear out the window. A computer is a machine. Try to break it and then fix it, hehe. Volunteering for testing, reading forum posts and building software packages is where I got my start. Also, I find that I actually learn things by helping others.

You can learn to build packages from the information pages at our latest website http://users.zenwalk.org where we have listed howtos, package rules and other goodies. If your interested in building or have already built packages, email me for an FTP account and submit them. That may be the chance to get your foot in the door.

As far as games go, I run the gaming site. I am in the process of moving my Zenwalk Linux gaming site http://www.zengamer.tuxfamily.org/ to a new site http://tuxgames.net/index.php

The reason for the move is that I can host several distros to create a "Linux" gaming site offering game packages and information to as many distros as possible. Remember, not all distros have major game repositories and we actually have games that Debian doesn't have because they do not have a "D" comppiler. (I read their public gaming mailing list)

Thanks

This is asked a lot on LQ - a good way to start is to find an existing project, preferably one you have an interest in, and see if there's any help they need - contact the devs.

Alternatively, if you feel the program needs extra functionality, write something and then contact the devs to see if they are interested in it.

Really, the best way to do it .... is to do it!

Well i lost my fist impression about zenwalk flavor when i tried to install it on my system since it didnt had any eye catching GUI support for intallation process like suse or mandriva supports, so i didnt installed the os at all.
I think developers should provide agud gui for zenwalk to make it more interesting to use as well as attractive.


Thanks xavierP, that was a valuable suggestion and i apolozie to post that qs here instead of putting it on LQ forum. By the way i also wanted to ask rather also its my curiosity to know, is there any way a fresher who is passed out from graduation college with out any working experience able to get into an open source company for job viz. suse(novell), redhat, mandriva, etc. if so then how?? and as i am residing in india.
Thanks.

That is what makes zenwalk so great. It has a pretty quick install due to no overhead of an installer. Why give up? Have you asked for Help yet? The installation process is easier then you might expect.

just pop the cd in.
when it boots up to where it says boot: press enter.
then take the defualts of the keymap if you live in the us.
it should then say login as root.
after logging in type fdisk /dev/hda (hdd)
or fdisk /dev/sda (for scsi or Sata drives)
then use n
enter p
then 1
then specifiy the begining number. Then say +512M
then use n again
enter p
then 2
then use the rest of the disk for the root partition.
then hit t
then 1
then use code 82 for swap.
then use w to write the partition table.
then type setup.
go to addswap.
after it formats then it will make you click enter on /dev/hda2 for the / partition.
then just choose full install. the rest is pretty simple. Need more help just ask on this forum.
