Re: Distro-hoppers Anonymous

If you like package managers, you'll like YUM. It's yummy.

While we're on the subject, I hope everyone running Jessie/Sid has noticed you can now use apt on its own for many things, as with Mint and Ubuntu these days:

$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt upgrade
$ apt search

The results appear in a different format so maybe it's a new tool?

Re: Distro-hoppers Anonymous

Yum is the top Linux package manager IMHO. But Anaconda kills Fedora for me - house-of-cards installer.

Re: Distro-hoppers Anonymous

lol Haven't tried Fedora, but I've been running OpenSUSE and Mint 17.1 and LMDE in VB. I like Mint 17.1 so much I decided to install it on metal. Cinnamon has come a long way. It's very polished, offers pretty much the same apps I use anyway with the basic install, and everything works OOTB. I'd definitely recommend this distro to anyone who wants to try Linux for the first time, as well as for users who've decided they don't want to recreate the wheel, so to speak, after installing. It is easily configurable, with options to tweak further if you're so inclined. I'm curious to see where Clem and crew take Mint in 2016 and beyond.

Re: Distro-hoppers Anonymous

^I've run OpenSUSE 13.1 both stable and Tumbleweed, as well as 13.2 KDE on metal. There are things I really like about it, but I have mixed feelings about KDE. Also, the distro doesn't seem as stable to me as some reviewers claim. For example, I experienced a crash when I was attempting to tweak some settings. Despite the beauty and glitter of OpenSUSE, some things work better with Debian and Debian-based distros like #!. Like you, I have second thoughts about an Ubunut-based distro like Mint and seriously considered LMDE instead (which I've tried in the past), but after comparing the two in VB,  I think the standard LM 17.1 Cinnamon version is better.

I won't make any predictions, but I wouldn't be surprised to see Mint evolve in a different direction in a couple of years.

^ Meh  neutral

OT: My Archbook didn't like Arch ( sad ), so it has SL 6 now. Yum speed... at least it's easy to purge packagekit ("Another app is currently holding the yum lock" ...  roll )

Re: Distro-hoppers Anonymous

Have any of you guys trying alpine linux managed to get alpine-desktop running on a vm? I've tried with both vbox and qemu (after running these

setup-xorg-base
apk add alpine-desktop xfce4 thunar-volman faenza-icon-theme slim

and no results,  (too lazy to open a help me thread now...).

running on jessie.
