Hi Alexander,

Thanks very much for all the info - I figured this would be a build-from-source situation. I remember the good old days of having to build most things from source and I don't mind doing so today when necessary, but personally I enjoy the modern convenience of package managers and well-stocked repositories. So I probably wouldn't switch to a distro like Slackware (or, I've also read Gentoo is similar in that everything is built from source, an I've met people who swear by it); at the moment my preferred distros are Debian-based ones. (Update: I don't mean to imply there is anything wrong with building stuff from source; just stating my current personal preference to use precompiled packages.)

Anyway, not to get too far off-topic, I'm still curious what exactly Linicks compiled / installed :-)

Thanks, Regards,
-- Hauke D

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
