Hi cb88, welcome to our forum!!
Auto mounting alone IMO is a bad idea... I feel out of control without a gui (I can get by with the CLI if need be) sure I want vector to DETECT my drive but I'll mount it in my own sweet time thank you....
I agree, but most people seem to prefer it if everything goes wizardy automatized.
How do you find pakages online without gslapt? I know slakware has a search tool that you can find apps online where is the Vector equivalent
rbistolfi made one some time ago, but I don't think there is one for vl 5.9 yet.
* The Headacher hopes somebody will read this and create a package search tool for 5.9 (and a link to it on the mainpage)
it seems Vector lacks a fortran compiler needed for R compilation from source
Our gcc comes from slackware. You can use Slackware's gcc-g77. Apparently, you know where to look
NO COMPIZ by default ... come on people at least offer it! Its the way of the future!
If that abomination is the future I'll take the past thank you. I'm glad it's not on the .iso, there's hardly enough room for what's already on it. I'll take useful programs over eye-candy every day.
I am cb88! also known as THE MIGHTY LAPLACINATOR and THE BROW (<-- courtesy my math proffesor)!
Man, if I had such nicknames I most certainly would've taken "The Mighty Laplacinator". I take it you're quite good at math huh
