Debian

Thanks Void... The testing/unstable Distro of Debian might not be the most intriguing thing for a fisrt-time Deb user. Once you go into Sarge/Sid (testing/unstable) you *ARE* going to find yourself in a world of sh***t. I'll bet my weekly $110(US) freelance web-design paycheck on it. (No, I am not d...

" There's something they don't teach you in schools..." And I am the one who believes that this type of stuff should be taught in every North American school.

A site totally devoted to unofficial Debian packages. Make sure that you are using the packages from the right version of Debian that you have, or else you are seriously going to mess up some libraries.

Plenty of American non-porfit oganizations use Linux to fuel thier servers, and their businesses. Of the government agencies that I know of, the FBI implements their own form of BSD (they pay some of the contributors to construct encryption techniques, and to re-write the system), and most of the la...

Apt should automatically install it for you if you do apt-get install alien), it will give you an error message when you try to run *.rpm in the traditiona...
