With Debian, you only install once! 2002-10-21 11:53 pm … that you can actually make it past install. I’ve tried and failed to install Debian twice, so who cares if it runs like a charm and apt-get rules if you can’t get X to work or pppoeconf makes your computer spontaneously reboot or kernel panic? Is it that hardware auto-detection is EVIL, or do they just think that it’s completely unimportant? 2002-10-22 12:43 am Is it that hardware auto-detection is EVIL, or do they just think that it’s completely unimportant? — It is evil. Installed Windows XP for my parents, and detected their Dynalink modem as an Askey, result? it doesn’t dial. Installed the correct one, now it works. However, everytime they reboot, it is detected as an Askey again. Userfriendly my ass. How about this, once it has been detected, DON’T BLOODY WELL REDETECT IT!!!!!!!!! 2002-10-22 1:44 am Or at least several developers do: http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2002/debian-devel-200210/msg01… I’d be totally geeked (pun fully intended) if this sort of thing got off the ground. 2002-10-22 3:16 am They went and wimpified Debian. Real Men (and women) use command line! :^) Actually it’s good to have a choice. 2002-10-22 3:25 pm Real Men (and women) use command line! Yeeeeaaaah you are correct and I think “people all over the world should be hunting with spears for their meal” because it is the way during the stone ages.
