Re: Distro-hoppers Anonymous

hi ew,
when you run visudo, it always edit sudoers.tmp, then edit the master file.
but you can run
$ su
$ password:
# vim /etc/sudoers

but i don't think your sudoers file is wrong..

Re: Distro-hoppers Anonymous

Really liking Mageia 2 right now (with Gnome 3, not KDE).

It's missing some packages - cherrytree, kazam, frogatto - but some things it does really well and smoothly for beginners. Like setting up a LAMP with Drupal or WordPress. Easy as pie and with all the permissions set up correctly too.

People argue about whether its position on Distrowatch is justified and whether it is a reflection of anything more meaningful than hits on pages. But still, if I knew someone who wanted to start using Linux and I had to set up a PC for them, I'd probably put Mageia on it rather than Ubuntu or Linux Mint.

Re: Distro-hoppers Anonymous

So now I have to ask... how is LinuxBBQ different from siduction, aptosid, and semplice (besides the baconator), or vice versa?

Re: Distro-hoppers Anonymous

^I've read it wink Hence my questions wink
I started way back when Kanotix was based on SID, so SID doesn't scare me;)
Just wondering about any differences... like siduction has towo's kernel, which performs well, and in some case seems to perform better than the liquorix (for vm hosting).

Re: Distro-hoppers Anonymous

I think they look pretty different/cool too.

Much to choose from and there are community config contributions.

I like the whole tobaccy spittin' bbq vibe of the place.

Re: Distro-hoppers Anonymous

Thanks to Ivan, the Minister of Propaganda smile

@Hinto: to answer briefly without 'hijacking' the hopper's thread - key differences are that the spins come with zsh (with grml's huge configuration file) for bash, a different installer, our own realtime-kernel for 64bit (optional), systemd for sysvinit, an own set of BBQ tools like an upgrade warnings notifier, Roaster browser and the Cookbook manual, and no locales except en_US. Some other minor tweaks. The aim is to provide a minimal base on which you apt-get your applications instead of downloading the same old 'default apps' that are packaged in 'the big distros' (GIMP, LibreOffice, ...) again and again. Just as comparison, the XFCE spin weighs 400MB, Openbox is somewhere are 396MB. Siduction's no-X is ~320MB, BBQ weighs around 235. Other than that, desktop-wise there's a MATE base system, GNOME3 as ivanov already wrote; some special editions like "Rocks" (audio home studio), "Stud" (edition for students), "Latex" (contains the fontsetting apps) or "Burgoo" (DOSbox on a stick with a bunch of games), this month follows "Milf" with CDE (the old Unix desktop env.) and a CPC emulator on a stick with 2966 games.

About kernels:

Towo's kernel is perfect for virtualizations, that's why I prefer it over slh's (not that aptosid's kernel is bad or something; it's really just about workflow or usage). Liquorix might be good for other tasks, personally I didn't have 'excellent' performance with it, though compared to the latest Debian stock kernel (3.2.xx) it shines! Still, I found Ikey's 3.0.0 kernel brilliant. He seems to have removed all unneeded crap (debugging?) from it.
