Thread: How to install a progam? :)

    Default Re: How to install a progam? :)

    and as I said, I am NEW to linux, linux != windows so... problems may arise. You are expert (let's say) in linux but if you will change to... Snow Leopard (for example) you may have big troubles too
    Anyway thank you for your answers and I understood: as a beginner, stick at the 4 repositories!

    nope, i got rid of that thing a long time ago..

    whatever you like, go for it...but, you are just making harder on
    yourself to have a stable system..

    > - microsoft word always will look bettern then openoffice's writer so

    then you should use what you like best...if it works for you what is
    the point of trying something new? Linux is not for everyone on the
    planet...if you are happy paying the price for other, then use it..

    have you asked for help with those problems also...one problem per
    post, in the correct forum, with a good subject line..

    > I made highschool, faculty and master on computers,


    with all that education you should very soon be a helper, instead of
    an asker..

    just be patient, it is takes a little time to learn you way around
    here...you might benefit from a read here:

    and, an old posting of mine with directions to more documentation than
    you can read in a day, or twelve :-) here: http://tinyurl.com/ybklh48

    oh, it wasn't my intent to relay that i think you (or anyone else)
    should be born with the knowledge of how to "install a program" but, i
    do think a trip to the search engines will find all those answers
    already waiting for you..

    > You are expert (let's say)


    you can say that, i won't.

    heck, i have BIG troubles every time i go on vacation and am forced to
    use Windows in a net cafe or library...i've not had any Redmond on my
    own computer since 1995 so i don't know how to use it at
    all....zero....every time i try i get it all messed up...it is
    impossible!!

    and, i've even touched a Mac....saw my first iPhone just a couple of
    week ago....i thought it was impossible to see the screen while
    outside....looked impossible to use to me..

    ymmv

    linux != windows but I see linux != linux: I mean yesterday I tried to put a kubuntu to start in text mode (runlevel 3, wich can be found in /etc/inittab) or init 3 (from command line) and I've seen that is SO different from suse. It has no inittab and in runlevel 3 the kde was still up

    I hope I didn't disturb anyone. I will read all the recommended articles.
    thank you a lot

    sure didn't disturb me.....and, yes there are lots of differenceds
    between the distros, all 350+ have some variations somewhere...if you
    don't like openSUSE try something else...i bet you can find something
    you like..

    as for "linux != windows" you will probably get a kick out of this

    This is a litmus question, can you explain, in any way, why you must have
    netbeans 6.9 instead of 6.5? Just exactly what does 6.9 provide or bug
    does it fix that is not provided/not fixed in 6.5?

    Yep, you are so darned new that you have no respect for the Linux ways of
    doing things. We built Linux and several exemplars such as Linus
    Torvalds contributed far more than almost anyone else, each and every one
    of us has access to the current and historical sources and can remake any
    part of it to suit ourselves. Try that with Redmond or Cupertino
    software.

    Oh my god! I didn't want to offend anyone! Sorry for that.
    And regarding to "why you must have netbeans 6.9 instead of 6.5? " well, I bet you will upgrade your opensuse to 11.3 in december! Well, I will upgrade to in 15 days
