    RE: trouble with c
    I not so good at C but I think this is the problem: You type more than what getchar takes and put in s. the rest needs to be flushed. http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/smartfaq.cgi?answer=1044873249&id=1043284392 edit: Newer mind this I did read it wrong [I not so good at C but obvious line 29 don't do what we want it to do. I think the best thing to do is to use the lim value so you newer add to much chars to the s array in the first place. Your not getting any out of bounds error messages?]

    RE: I had a thought the other day.....
    If I understand it right copyright/licensing and patents is not exactly the same thing. Read this if you are interested: http://softwarefreedom.org/resources/2011/debian-patent-policy-faq.html I don't know how it works but is it really so that a patent made on a later time can win over free/open code that was released long before the patent was filed? While the patent system maybe is no good for software (As argued by FSF: http://endsoftpatents.org/), there is still lots of work done to protect free and open source software with the current system.

    RE: Cant boot from CD
    What do you see when you try to boot? Is it no output to the screen at all? Or at what step does it not work?

    RE: Source code
    It's here: http://kernel.org/ Edit: I noticed now that they recently got a security breach. It can be a good idea to wait a few days to let them sort it out. Just to be 100% sure.

    RE: Does New Mandriva 2011 (Hydrozen) make sense??
    This maybe have something with to do with the major changes in Gnome 3. Im not a user of Mandriva and I like Gnome 2.x a lot and I like to chose but I still think it a good move as the developers can put more focus on that desktop.

    RE: Mirrors for a new Linux distro?
    I think using http://sourceforge.net/ is the easies thing to do, they have lots off mirrors and developers can care about what matters. Also check out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_open_source_software_hosting_facilities I checked out my "University mirror" http://ftp.sunet.se/ and yes what do I see they are mirror providers to sourceforge! Edit: Btw I have seen distributions that only have there ISO-files on SF and it's enough for world distribution. So you only have to put one download link on the distro page :D (you can always go with torrents to)
