Agreed, BLAG is the best distro I have tried, and I’ve tried a few now! I think I have a bit of an odd system as very few distros would install with as much functionality, every step was a nightmare, BLAG was a breath of fresh air as most everything has worked nicely, the only thing I have trouble with is printing but as my work is still based on win2k it matters not yet, however I have found my missing app, (Dia, to do my wiring diagrams) so I will soon be seeking to iron that prob out.
as for Gaim, after trying Kopete on mandrake, my first taste of Linux, (a distro that fought me well and won) I am left hankering for a chance to get back to it, kopete that is. i did try to install it on BLAG 10k but failed miserably, probably due to it being compiled for another kernel, or is it a KDE only app? Anyways, just thought I’d sing its praises, not sure if it does the IRC thing but it worked nicely with my ICQ and msn allowing me to send files to friends, mainly snapshots of my desktop showing off Linux, this I have never managed with Gaim.
Well best I stop babbling but thanks again for BLAG.
