hoshi411so how is crux on ppc? anywhere i can get some reviews or screenshots?11:51
hoshi411ive got debian and opensuse dual booting on my powerbook g411:52
hoshi411and debian is screamin11:52
hoshi411so i was curious if im misding out on some other great distros for ppc11:53
frinnstcruxppc is sort of a separate project11:53
hoshi411frinnst, but theres no seperate chanel for it right11:54
frinnstyou might be right :)11:55
frinnsti think acrux is pretty involved with it11:55
hoshi411how is crux on the newbie ease of use side?11:56
teK_CRUX is a lightweight, i686-optimized Linux distribution targeted at experienced Linux users.11:57
frinnsthard to say.. if you never used any gnu/linux distributions before you will be over your head11:57
frinnstbut if you really want to learn, its a pretty optimal choice11:57
teK_but I guess if you can read nad use a search engine you will get along with CRUX, too ;)11:57
hoshi411hmm welp im dual booting opensuse and debian on a ppc machine so im not a newbie to linux but if i have to compile kernels to install it i might have problems11:59
frinnstyou do need to compile your own kernel, unless you want to run the kernel from the install medium11:59
frinnstbut honestly, compiling a kernel is not hard at all11:59
hoshi411frinnst, what DE / WM do you use with crux12:01
frinnsti use fluxbox12:01
hoshi411but gnome runs fine on it right?12:01
frinnsti guess12:01
hoshi411and firefox and gparted etc?12:02
frinnstbut if i wanted to run a DE i dont think i would use crux for it12:02
frinnstfirefox seems to work, havent gotten that many complaints regarding it :)12:02
frinnstparted/gparted is not included on the iso, only fdisk/cfdisk et. al12:03
hoshi411i see12:04
frinnstif youre hesitant, why not try it in a virtual machine first?12:04
hoshi411thats a good idea12:04
hoshi411ill do that12:05
