Hi All

As a complete Linux nOOb, but with a pretty keen interest in anything that potentially gets me away from Windows, I was initially delighted when I received a Speedtouch USB from my new ASDL ISP yesterday since I soon discovered it was Linux compatible.

I'm pleased to report that having (carefully) followed the instructions in this thread, I'm now writing this message from the Linux world.

For the record, it wasn't necessary to edit the latest (dated 10-Nov-2004).....

The installation was completely painless - but only because people take the time to provide advice in Forums like this.


P.S. Hopefully my next move is to get Gnomad (for my Zen) and pySoulseek (P2P) which time 'bye-bye Bill' becomes a real possibility :-) Suffice to say I'll be checking elsewhere on this site in order to attempt this !

Thanks tredegar it's good - make that great - to be here :-)

The learning curve is steep - but the satisfaction of getting things to work is worth the time......I got Nicotine up and running but Gnomad2 is doing my head in today....(allsorts of problems - for me at least :-) - get ting the CVS libnjb1.3 to work with it).......but we shall prevail. Eventually. By Xmas at the worst!
