Pulling my hair out!


After 2 and a half hours of downloading the gentoo ISO`s I find out my darn CDwriter is not working all of a sudden, so i am now redownloading them onto my win98 system cuz i know the writer there works imagine that, LOL. Gentoo, Debian, Mandrake witch one? and does anyone here think Suse will be around long or go the way of RH?

I think you should install which ever one you like the most. I tried SuSE and don't really care for it too much. I would rather use Redhat. I don't really like to use Redhat right now, so I'm using Slackware. Debian.....Never tried it....so I don't know. Gentoo I tried but it doesn't seem as stable as Slackware and it takes too long to install. I have a life therefore I don't have time for Gentoo

My 2 cents....

From other responses and other posts i have viewed, Isnt Slack more command line based and not very GUI friendly or is that just a misperception? I see that theres a lot of people that swear by Slack so there must be something to it.

There just isn't as much GUI "preconfigured" off the get go like in Redhat or SuSE or Mandrake. You just have to config it yourself. I got KDE up and running on Slackware 9.1 in a matter of about 20 minutes.

If the 2 computers are networked, wouldn't it be quicker to send the isos from 1 comp. to the other?
