Just recovered from a crash

Hi everybody, I haven't been here for a day or two, just had a major crash on my RedHat machine, I was kind of expecting all this, 'cause I had the most recent developemnet kernel with 75% packages compiled from source, rpm database got crippled, and on top of that on Friday night my floppy, cdrw and dvd-rom refused to mount, and USB support went kaboom, so I took the advantage of the crash and installed slackware on it. Now, I just need to get everything I had on RH system, I just compiled 2.4.19, I think I'll wait for the next stable release, I'll recompile 2.4.19 with preempt patch, not a biggy. So, what I was trying to say was that mixing RPM's and source tarballs is not a good option. At least I learnt that lesson And Slack is sweet, so is gentoo, I'll never go back to rpm based distros full-time anymore.

Sweet d00d, always a bright side to every jacked up situation. At least it wasn't a complete suprise for ya. I am thinking about throwing on Mandy onto a blank partition I have been reserving for it, but that'll mean leaving slack for a while when I am setting things up, and I'll feel so lost again I guess no big deal, I can always just reboot into my Slack, and feel good and comfy again.

Anyway, good luck getting everything back up to where you were. Have fun!
