    RE: Arch Linux in Virtual Box
    I also noticed you are using the root account. You did not create a user account. In the shell type: cd / This should to the beginning of the file system which is the root directory. Then use "ls" and tell me what is listed

    RE: Arch Linux in Virtual Box
    Interesting. Give me the YouTube link so I can have a look at. In the meantime, I am going to download that ISO file and examine the installation process. Try not to rely on YouTube videos. It is best to read the archlinux wiki. It gives better instructions on installation.

    RE: Arch Linux in Virtual Box
    Is it possible you can give us the version number of arch linux and the site you downloaded it from? I would like attempt an install of this system on my virtualbox. The idea is to see what you see and what errors could occur.

    If you get any error messages, write everything you see plus your previous steps and copy them here. With Linux, the choice is up to the user. You pick whatever you feel comfortable with. From there you can begin your journey into the GNU/Linux realm.

    RE: Live CD Knoppix
    The reason you see multiple files is because there have been multiple iso images made spanning from 2001 to 2013. Whenever a new iso spin is made it is posted on the main download site with the version and date. the file that you downloaded should work fine. The other files like the .MD5 and .Sha1 are used to confirm the iso is the authentic. This assures that you did not download a fake copy. You need to download these files, but is recommended that you check to make sure you have the right one. What version of linux do you have; ubuntu, fedora, mint, debian..etc? Ubuntu has a native program that will allow you to burn iso files. Xubuntu have xfburn, Ubuntu has bresaro or usb-startup. You can download both from the repositories. If you are using windows you can download, inetbootin: [url=http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/]inetbootin[/url] You do not have to extract anything. Just download and burn.

    RE: Hello World!
    Thanks for introducing yourself. Thanks for a history background of your experience with Linux. I would like for you to keep us posted on your project of SPDX. This project, as I could understand, will better explain the licenses on distributed programs. The easier it is to explain the licenses, the better knowledge the user will have of using the software or development. This is my best summary of the SPDX project. If I need to be corrected please do so. I have a similar idea to the manpages of a linux system. I believe they can be improved with better comprehensive wording. Not only that, and this is open source, any user of the system should be able to modify the manpage database, rewriting the man pages to something that they can better understand. I have came across a few man pages that could use some improvement. Not all programs and system functions come installed with manpages. This will be a future project. Please keep us posted on your event and blog about what you spoke about.
