Anyone running Open Suse as their Primary OS
mhbell posted a topic in Bruno's All Things LinuxIs anyone in the Forum Running open SuSe as their Primary OS or Distro? I ran the commercial versions of Suse from 4.2 until 10.0 around 2006 when I switched to Ubuntu until Ubuntu went to Unity. At that time I went to Mint and been with mint ever since. I am seriously thinking of going back to Suse or maybe Fedora. Give me your input pro and con. Thanks Mel
Arch Linux vs. Slackware vs. Ubuntu vs. Fedora
abarbarian posted a topic in Bruno's All Things Linuxhttp://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=arch_2012_linuxdistros&num=1 This shoot out is almost a year old but I thought it would be of interest. I hesitated posting as Arch is not a clear cut winner by any means. Though it does in the main kick Ubuntus butt, well it is more of a playful kick in the pants really.
"su -" instead of "su" ?
saturnian posted a topic in Bruno's All Things LinuxI've been running Fedora since Fedora 14, but I still don't quite understand why Fedora documentation recommends using su - instead of su. I don't recall ever using su - in any distro other than Fedora. Anyone know the reasoning behind this? I've looked over man su in Fedora, and ran info coreutils 'su invocation' and took a look at that. I also found an old FAQ page, http://www.fedorafaq.org/basics/, where it says: That makes sense, but... still, I haven't needed to use su - in Debian and other distros. I also took a look at this, in Fedora 18: steve[~]$ su Password: [root@localhost steve]# echo $PATH /usr/lib/qt-3.3/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/sbin:/home/steve/.local/bin:/home/steve/bin [root@localhost steve]# exit exit steve[~]$ su - Password: [root@localhost ~]# echo $PATH /usr/lib/qt-3.3/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/root/bin [root@localhost ~]# The differences seen there probably explain things to someone who understands this stuff better than I do. I know that when I run the same commands in Bridge Linux, the PATH variable is exactly the same both times. Same thing when I run the same commands in Debian Wheezy. But in Fedora, you get a different PATH with su - than with su.
