I have been running lenny on a p4 box. I want to be able to encode using avidemux and x264. Apparently lenny and their derivatives have some dependency issues when trying to setup an encoding box using the latest apps, mainly mplayer, avidemux and x264. so if i am going to have to compile a bunch of crap anyway i will use Slackware and rely heavily on

  • updated Slackware
  • added dri intel i810
  • fixed scroll

why is it that some distros seem to have everything you want, like plugins and flash, and other distros dont. I find that even some later distros dont have these extras already programed in and ready to use. We are not all geeks and some of us are still struggling to download and get packages up and running.I have just this week installed Suse 11 onto my computer.Have had lots of crashes since installing this distro.

I am not new to Linux, using it for about three years now. But still learning. I tried several distributions. Started with Suse, tried Fedora some time, then Debian and settled for Ubuntu. Now I installed Fedora 10 and Suse 11.0 alongside Ubuntu (8.10). Not without problems though. The first time Suse refused to let me visit the internet or do something with my email, but it saw my router and I was able to ping an external website.
