Samsung ML 1210 Laser Printer
Was given this about a year ago by a neighbor. It didn't pickup the paper most of
the time. Just had to clean the roller a bit and push a plastic sheet a bit inside
that was interfering with the feed mechanism. Issue resolved.

Here are related helpful links for this printer. Was easy to get drivers and install via Cups.

I truly love the CLI OS. It helps to focus on what is more important without the other distractions from bells, whistles, images etc., Now I see these are more noise.

On a different note, I have had the same experience with BSDs, thought it was just me but I am not alone:
I could not get it to boot on my desktop hardware, a problem I typically have with FreeBSD-based projects. I can often work around little issues when trying a new operating system, but only if it will boot.

Yes, the Debian installation images get stale pretty fast, but you can still access the distribution if you can roll an installation iso yourself. For example, http://archive.kernel.org/debian-archive/debian/dists/

You just point your sources list to the archive and the package system will happily use the old store. As I'm pretty slow to uprgrade myself, I've had to point my sources file to the archive a few times. I fact I was away from Linux/GNU for some time and when I recently came back I had to go back to the archives to get up to speed for a recent release.

GhostBSD is available in two flavours, MATE and Xfce, and is currently available for 64-bit x86 computers exclusively.
Could be why you have trouble, only available for 64bit systems.

I think NetBSD & OpenBSD are better for a CLI system.

Very helpful to know, thanks for sharing. Yes if no one DLs then it is removed what time.

Good to know that NetBSD and OpenBSD are better for CLI systems. I tried the BSDs a year ago, they were 32 bits. Never got too far with any BSD, just my luck I guess.

Lots to learn on LinuxBBQ wiki and forums. I bookmarked and DL a lot, will be learning slowly, same with the basics of CLI also. When it comes to retro computing a lot depends on the OS. Some customization is quite needed. Learning CLI is very valuable, I strongly suggest this to all into retro Linux computing, do a little daily or weekly, please don't ignore this aspect. With LinuxBBQ my max. ram use was 60 Mb approx. when I had several terminals open, usually it is around 15 Mb or so. I gave only 3Gb for this partition, for normal use in text mode this is quite sufficient. However, for trying different things, learning etc., give 10 to 15 Gigs are needed. I am quite happy with CLI now, can even use a P2 or a P1 PC with ease, tx to CLI Linux. Until I came to LinuxBBQ I prefered P4. Now I am mostly using a P3. All the images, videos that are on web are too distracting. CLI helps to get good focus on things that one really needs. Best wishes to all.

i have used usually old pc's as a openbsd bridges, filtering traffic at my network.

i have unused box atm, Intel® Core™2 Quad Processor Q9300 (6M Cache, 2.50 GHz, 1333 MHz FSB) && 8gb of ram && 1tb of hdd.
i could install openbsd on it and honeypot, like thug : https://buffer.github.io/thug/ im not sure though if you can install thug at openbsd box.

Why the CLI is vital in 2017:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4G-936Op2es

Wish I had seen stuff like this in the long term past. I only saw what I wanted to see back then. Using CLI, this man is even able to use older tablet PCs. Another reason to go CLI.

Haha, your unused computer is better than the fastest computer that I own. My main desktop computer is a core2duo 2.3GHz with 6GB RAM. I built it at the end of 2007. It's pretty old now, and I'll probably upgrade within the next few years. But even though it's over ten years old, it still does everything I need it to do - something that'd be unthinkable ten years ago. Ten years ago, iso pippeli, a ten year old computer would be obsolete to the point where it'd be almost useless.

There are some great buys to be had on Thinkpad business lease returns if you know what to look for and are looking to buy at just the right time.

I have 7 laptops, 5 of them Thinkpads that came with either Win7 or Vista, the most powerful being my W520 with Intel Quad Core i7-2760QM @ 2.40GHz, 8GB RAM, HDD @ 7200RPM and NVIDIA Quadro 1000M with 96 CUDA cores and Optimus.

However, the one I'm using now and prefer over them all is a T61 with Intel Core2 Duo T7300 @ 2.00GHz, 4GB RAM, HDD @ 7200RPM and Quadro NVS 140M I paid just over $50 for on ebay. It looks and runs like new, has a 15.4" 1680x1050 (WSXGA+) widescreen with a beautiful picture, and running FreeBSD 11.1-RELEASE-p4 with Fluxbox has more than enough power for general desktop activities.

Thinkpad: The only laptop certified and to have flown on the Space Shuttle, Mir and International Space Station.

This P3 is so great to learn on, as long as one is not in
a rush and is not pushed for performance, this is excellent
to learn and try new things on. I didn't know that CLI is still so popular, wish I had started learning it earlier. Now this P3 is pretty much my main PC, I go to P4 only if I need to watch a video. Even the C2D is too fast for me. This P3 has 512 Mb ram but I rarely use more than 25 Mb. Once I get
really good with CLI, even a P1(Pentium 1) is sufficient for me for routine use altho I don't have one of those now.

I used to have Linux running on an old 20MHz 486sx, (IBM PS1), so anything else will be faster.
