YES ! Got my Mandrake 9.1 PowerPack


Recommended Posts

UPDATE:Slack 8.1 was not happy. Downloading Slackware 9.0 right now ! B)  Bruno
Bruno, glad to hear you're progressing, and tweaking/upgrading at the same time. When you get a spare minute, can you tell me if it's possible to install a package that was designed for Slackware 9.0, on Mandrake 9.1? Have it d/l, but it won't install. :) Getting a message in Konsole that says: permission denied. Do I have to logon as Root? Any help is greatly appreciated, TIA.

Thanks, Bruno, that's what I was afraid of. :) And yes, Linux is enjoyable even in failure. B)

UPDATE:Today I wiped the unhappy Slackware 8.1 and installed Slack 9.0 in 20 minutes flat, full setup including configuring X and internet access, could not even finish my coffee in time !Slackware 9.0 is extremely happy, has the new KDE 3.1, the Midnight Commander and a bundle of other programs. I think I could easily get hooked on this distro. :)I still have to built Slack in Mandrake´s Lilo, but will need to study the files on the Slack bootdisk, they are all in scrambled Chinese characters !I integrated Debian yesterday in Lilo and will post a how-to in the ¨Starters¨ thread tonight.For now I use KDE on all 3 disto´s, makes it easy to get accustomed to the ¨new¨ ones, later I will give each of them their own windowmanager: KDE for Mandrake, Debian feels like a bit oldfashon so will probably get Gnome, Slackware will definitely get IceWM !

Sounds like you can now kick back, enjoy the new systems and do special configurations, etc. and have that coffee ;)Sounds like a lot of fun!Having different Window Managers will sure make it easier to tell which OS you are currently running B) I generally use KDE, but on older boxes ICE is very nice! Small, light and powerful.

UPDATE: I´ve got my Lilo sorted out, all distro´s boot from the same bootmenu, adding Slackware was much more simple then I thought, my attempts were far to complicated . . . . but then suddenly it struck me as lightning . . now the job is done, I´ve got this lovely menu now:mandrakedebianslackwarelinux non-fbfailsafefloppyHereby I declare the operation ¨YES I´ve got my PowerPack¨ successful !Topic closed.:lol: Bruno
