I hope you have not taken offence from my earlier reply I have not taken offense. I was just wondering why you were reacting this way.

    I have not taken offense. I was just wondering why you were reacting this way. The one you talk about was just a spammer, and most probably a bot. Next time you read a suite of gibberish, you will notice that it is just a bunch of words with no precise meaning.

    >Have you tried the new release of Inact OS it works exclusively with nothing but write only memory. It has t.r.o.l.l. >features- typically random only ludicrously laughable features. I think you'd like it! Hi, I am not interested in distributions meant to just play with it a few minutes, but thanks. I typically like GNU&Linux distributions which work and are reliable. My 2 great favorites are Archlinux and PCLinuxOS, both rolling release, one for more advanced users (which forces me to make more efforts) and the other for people needing a stable and up to date system day to day. (PCLinuxOS is very stable, while having most current programs available in their latest stable version). Archlinux has many more possibilities, while some things may not always working perfectly without some work. I am not in the advanced users section, but a newbie here, registered just about a week ago. I contribute in the PCLinuxOS distribution where I brought a standalone easy to use Openbox version, the same for advanced users as a very small (Bonsai), and a few more under the shape of versions of existing ones remastered to French. If reverting back to a Mint 9 solves your problem then it is great. Maybe can you keep it until a newer one comes to fix the actual bugs that the latest has. Regards, Mélodie

    RE: Installing on several computers/making an image
    Hi, I didn't quite understand if you already chose a Linux distribution and flavor (type of desktop). I use PCLinuxOS, and can fast type in a tty in the root directory "mylivecd my_new_distro.iso" to make a bootable iso image of the running distribution which I want to install elsewhere or publish for use for other people. And many users currently use this feature with options to avoid adding files or directories which must not go into the ISO. The resulting iso not only contains all the changes performed but also contain the necessary tools for hardware detection. It is a script derived from this project: http://livecd.berlios.de/ Then, I heard about udpcast, http://www.udpcast.linux.lu/index.html used together with Parted Magic (but don't know how it works, I didn't have the opportunity to make use of it).

    RE: Just arrived
    Hi MasenM, Thank you for your welcome. One more question : how is it possible and made easy to try to help anyone on this forum, as I don't see any menu entry to look for new messages, topics, and so on ? (I am not a distro maintainer, just a maintainer of a few alternate versions... I would like to have knowledge for more but it isn't the case). Happy New Year ! Mélodie

    Hi, I found this friendly forum a pair of days ago, and registered. I started using GNU&Linux in 2004, with Mandrake 10. Then I switched to Debian during 3 months, then tried Ubuntu. I contributed to a book dedicated to beginners starting with Ubuntu, as co-autor during 5 months, then the book was published early 2006. Then I wanted to try Archlinux, which has been my main distribution during 4 years. In the meanwhile I tried a few more, such as Slitaz, Zenwalk, again Debian, and Mandriva, and a few small distros. In 2008 I started using PCLinuxOS KDE Minime, and in 2009 a member of the PCLinuxOS community created a program to localize in many languages, using a separate repository for the po/mo files. So I started to learn to remaster the different flavors available, to provide them to a French speaking community. I also started a project around the Openbox window manager as a standalone version, with sparkles of small programs and configuration files provided to make it easy to use. I am now a full contributor, with the creation of a dedicated website in French, some more joined, we created a wiki and we continue. Here is the website: http://pclinuxos-fr.org and here a presentation in English of the specifically easy and lightweight Openbox version of PCLinuxOS : [url=http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php/topic,96396.0.html][b]New Openbox Editions Available[/b][/url]. And the latest built on Openbox too, is a special version for young children : PCLinuxOS Education, that we (a group of parents from several countries) have worked on for more than 2 years. A full, up to date presentation can be seen here: [url=http://meylodie.wordpress.com/2011/12/26/pclinuxos-education-en-2/][b]PCLinuxOS Education (en)[/b][/url] I have a question related to the present website : what is the difference between the forum, and the "Linux answers" section ? I tried to answer to someone a pair of days ago when I came first, but I still don't see the answer I provided : how come ? I tried to give a good and useful answer, so I would suppose it might be published one of these days, before the person thinks nobody cares for her problem ? Regards, Mélodie
