My linux - how sweet it is
It seems to me that Its been some time since I posted here at LQ. And I'd like
to tell you why.

I have 2 distros installed - Slackware 10.1 (semi-currnet) and Gentoo 2005.0 (semi-current). And in a nut shell.... I have NO problems.
(spend majority of time in gentoo now-a-days)

I can do what I need to do
I do not have any software problems or glitches (spelling?)
My uptime is great (only power down for the occasional electrical storm)
My performance is just fine ( on a medium powered computer - AMD 1800)
My network (including network printing) is secure and stable

The only downside is I've forgotten some things about linux - since once its
setup, it just runs and runs and runs.

I'm not asking for any help - just happily anouncing I have moved on to the
group of quiet linux users who just 'use' it.

Best regards to all

All quiet on the linux front :D Yes, it feels great to just 'use' it...

Same here - my uptime is starting to measure in the "months" now with a Slack 10.1 LAMP setup... It. Just. Runs.

Your lucky, I can't just use it!! I have to find someway to screw it up then get it working again.

Hmmm sounds a little to much like marriage... Guess some people are never satisfied...

Guess I'll go see what I can rm from the /bin directory again.

I have plenty of problems to be solved in linux..
I would divorce linux if I could just use it.
Not being able to just 'use' it is the reason i fell in love with linux
in the first place..

HA HA.. believe me... I spent years LOVING the fact I had to learn/tweek/fix/modify linux.

Hence my reference in the original post of:
".... I have moved on to the group of quiet linux users who just 'use' it. "

Enjoy your learning... and have fun.

I feel the same way with Debian. It's so rock solid and fully configued that I feel I'm really rusting away my knowledge.

That's why I keep myself on the button by tinkering with various other distros installed on my system to experiment with.

I always get bored when it just "works" ;) .
then i always install some useless app and play around with it for some time.
But sometimes you can be lucky. A friend of mine had a Dell laptop with Debian on it. He'd got everything working, so anturally he got bored.
Then, luckily, his WLAN card stopped working :P .
Sorry for my useless post.

Kind Regards Bjerrk
