Is it me or there seems to be a fad going for Knoppix? So what’s new?
From Distrowatch I found it uses the debian dep and it runs directly from CD without hard disk installation. How is that done?! How is that different from just a simple bootdisk?
Debian are known for being outdated. Is Knoppix any better?
Pros and Cons with ports vs deb anybody? (I’ve used neither so I don’t really know what’s going on.)
I am thinking about my next server system. I’m currently using RedHat 8.0 with an old version of Postfix as mail server. It isn’t too difficult to set up I guess because more documents on the web are tailered to RH more than anything else. But I’m thinking of updating a new version of mail server and I’m afraid to run into RPM hell. Gentoo seems to have a good package management but building from source is beyond my ability I’m afraid. I’ve heard that it offers pre-compiled binary, but is that easier to manage than RPM? And how does Knoppix and deb come to play?
