    Whats your favorite distro of Linux??
    By Sergeant Tux April 23, 2001, 11:24 PM

    Personally I like Mandrake, im gonna install Mandrake 8 on my new system.

    By anfpunk April 24, 2001, 12:01 AM

    I like Debian, Slack, and Mandrake(for ease of use).

    Slackware 7.1 with major modifications and upgrades is what runs on my computer. I keep the kernel up-to-date and other things such as KDE/Gnome/and Xfree. It all works great.

    Well, I'm lazy and I use RedHat 7.1. It's what I know and it works for me. That plus my ISP has a mirror of RedHat's ftp server, which makes all those upgrades and updates pretty easy.

    I too, dig RH7.1, More so than Mandrake 8. BTW, for those interested, i got the nvidia drivers running with the tar gzips in RH7.1.

    I like the one with the little red, green, blue, and yellow flag on it. Err, wrong topic...

    I like redhat 7.1 and mandrake 8, I have both, but I am using redhat right now. I also got the nvidia drivers working but
    I used the source rpm's and did an rpm --rebuild on them, that worked fine too. I'm sure that would work on mandrake, so I may install that one and try it out.

    It didnt work for me---i got a lot of header errors or something. I tried every rpm on that page and the tar gzips, but there was always an error with the NVdriver file. Nobody i have talked to with Mandrake 8 has been successful with getting the drivers installed. Work great on RH7.1 though. Since its almost the exact same distro (minus some apps, an an slightly earlier kernel [2.4.2[) i really have no reason to go back to Mandrake. ;-)

    Slackware and SuSE I like.

    By Nightbringer April 24, 2001, 09:12 PM

    Caldera OpenLinux 2.4!. I have used Mandrake 7 also but Caldera's is just more straightforward to use. I configured my DSL internet connection in a snap while in Mandrake I couldn't (I don't know, the network section in DrakConf was a little complicated).

    By drhead April 24, 2001, 11:11 PM

    Am using SuSE7.1 and Mandrake7.2 cause they are newbie friendly,but I like Libranet1.9 also

    By mikek147 April 25, 2001, 07:01 AM

    I personally like Debian. I've been with Debian since 2.0.32. I like the ease of upgrading with the combination apt-get/aptitude. Further, from what I've seen, Debian's configuration most resembles Unix. FWIW. -mk

    By tigger__666 April 25, 2001, 08:47 AM

    I personally use SuSE 7.0

    Probably because of the amount of software you actully get with the full distro. Saves me my internet phone bill in the long run.

    By jimmt April 25, 2001, 10:33 AM

    I prefer Caldera and Slakware.

    I'd definately recommend getting a deluxe version of Linux Mandrake. I have version 7.1 and am very happy with it. The installer is able to partition your hard drive, detect and setup hardware, and setup a dual-boot very easily. Another reason I really like it is that it comes with tons of software! In total it's 7 cds of which 2 are source code.
