Somehow, I think Ubuntu and Windows users have more in common then differences, when it boils down to the masses ^_^

<leech2you> and i cannot make ./config 
<leech2you> ??
<tibidi> because it's not config 
<tibidi> ./configure
<leech2you> that's i talkin about 
<leech2you> root@Dx4#./configure
<leech2you> ./configure: Command not found.
<dlh> `ls`
<leech2you> for others it works 
<leech2you> but
<leech2you> for this one dont
<tibidi> is this a package 
<leech2you> no
<leech2you> iptables 1.2 ...
<leech2you> root@Dx4#ls -a
<leech2you> ./ extensions/ iptables-restore.8

<tibidi> that "make && make install is enough
<dlh> leech2you vi INSTALL
<leech2you> it says that i have to recompile my kernel 
<leech2you> :(
<Tekken> the point is not to screw the dude 
<Tekken> to have it static in the kernel and then {lost in translation} 
<Tekken> here i think he only need to compile it and load it as module 
<leech2you> yeah that's what i want 
<leech2you> but ...
<Tekken> well tibidi told you how..
<Tekken> make && make install
<leech2you> i try this

Wow...

It just goes to show how often people ignore software licenses; they automatically choose the 'I accept' button without realizing just how far the totalitarian restrictions on use go, only to later fail in understanding just how FREE other software packages can be.

Back in when I was in junior high, the school signed up for some deal with Apple so that every student was loaned a laptop for school assignments. I remember there was some stupid rule which stated something about students not being allowed to install additional software on the machines because of 'legal issues' (which I'm pretty sure meant licensing issues).

It's not that I had planned on installing BSD or GNU/Linux (I did fantasize about it, though), but I did break that rule pretty quickly by installing Firefox .

----
As an aside, I love how this article states that the students were "empowered as learners and producers of knowledge"; the school provided a fully proprietary environment without even simple development tools installed.

The Unix-specific programs, or at least the terminal emulator and X11, (at least from what I remember) were nonexistent on the machines, too.

Sounds pretty restrictive if you ask me.

Most people I know/meet (gnusers aside), don't care much about the license; if they want it, they take it or buy it. They don't look for programs to use, they look at what's on the other sods desktop lol.


With the exception of BIOS/ACPI, I can survive on a fully FOSS system -> free speech, free beer, and lots of code to read, and I can send people some ;-)

Imagine you actually installed BSD/Linux and put a OS X theme on it, that'll be fun!!

I am not a you-tube fan but today while looking for Sun videos on you-tube and came across this:

The man himself (Andy Bechtolshiem) giving a demo of Sun x64 systems.
(in case you are wondering who that guy is - he is to computer systems/arch what Bill Joy is to Unix):

Actually, I did install Mac OS 6.something via minivmac on my laptop.
My friends wanted me to bring my laptop into the tech helpdesk with that running in fullscreen mode... it would have been priceless to see the looks on their faces .

Ok, if there are any women present who are offended by this -> I apologize. Just heard this on 94.9 with After MidNite with Blair Garner, and cracked up.

Quote:
Queen Elizabeth and Dolly Parton die on the same day, and they both go before St. Peter to find out if they'll be admitted to heaven.

Unfortunately, there's only one space left that day, so St.Peter must decide which of them gets in.

St. Peter asks Dolly if there's some particular reason why she should go to heaven, so she takes off her top and says, "Look at these. They're the most perfect ones God ever created, and I'm sure it will please him to be able to see them every day for eternity."

St. Peter thanks Dolly, and asks Queen Liz the same question. She then drops her skirt and panties, takes a bottle of Perrier out of her purse, shakes it up, and douches with it.

St. Peter says, "OK, Your Majesty, you may go in".

Dolly is outraged. She screams, "What was that all about? I show you two of God's own creations, she performs a disgusting hygiene act, and gets in and I don't?!!!"

"Sorry, Dolly," says St. Peter, "but a royal flush beats a pair any day."

Both of these are real old ones, but what the heck.
Here they are for your laughing enjoyment:
