zcat[1]godlygeek: almost everything is availableas packages, you just have to find a few nonstandard repos!

javescigarette, good idea
Terminusjaves: it becomes even more interesting when some piece of code will require a particular version of a lib. >_<
MerlinZShellhello guys
javesoooh
godlygeekzcat[1]: i trust nonstandard repos less than building from source, and if i build from source, i try to use 'checkinstall' - installs in a sandbox and creates a .deb out of the binaries

tom_kelleherPriceChild, if you could can you take a look at this and tell me what I seem to have done wrong? http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/20310/
zcat[1]./configure && apt-get install libfoo-dev && ./configure && apt-get install libsomethingelse-dev && ...
javesi found a site that explains alot about the command line and creating scripts, i think thats my next read
ceinif only it were that easy, eh?
zcat[1]godlygeek: well at least you do it right, I guess :)
PriceChildgodlygeek, checkinstall is BAD!!!
godlygeekPriceChild: why? :)
PriceChildgodlygeek, it does nasty things when making the deb, breaks things by assuming too much
aftertafjaves: yeah, good call... Not being afraid of not understanding is a good step forward... as long as you know that sometime you may have to start afresh... ;) good attitude dude :)
PriceChilddoesn't do checks that it should
godlygeek, use at own risk :)
MerlinZShellhow can i install ntfs-config synaptec cant find it
?
javesyeah this laptop is just for fun now
aftertaf"does nasty things when making the deb, breaks things " - i thought that was standard debian practise? ;)
zcat[1]javes: just for fun is good...
javeslinux isnt going anywhere near my macbook pro
aftertaffor now ;)
javesnot yet atleast
godlygeekPriceChild: well, i'd have to guess that a broken deb is still easier to uninstall than the results of a 'sudo make install', so until i find something that works better... lol
javes: works great on my macbook, nearly perfectly out of the box.
MerlinZShellguys can anyone help me setting up my ntfs-config ?
ceinanyone tried gobolinux?
Terminusjaves: once you get a handle on things, you might want to check out slackware/gentoo and once you're tired of all the inconvenience, come back to ubuntu. :)
javesyeah i bet beryl would be alot smoother on it
its got some issues with my nvidia card
aftertaf"why isnt wifi working?"
Terminusoh yeah, don't run gentoo on a pentium classic. you'll probably have to wait a year to get a working system. =D
