So you're saying that Mandrake sux for development . If you have to give the exact path for every library, is not a problem of Mandrake, it's YOUR problem, you doesn't know how to add simple instructions to gcc for search libraries.KillerShots said:Yeah, Mandrake and Fedora are probably your best bet. However, if you want to do any serious development, you probably won't touch Mandrake with a 10' stick - the environment is royally frelled. You have to give the exact path to each and every library you decide to use (instead of simply -lSDL, say), and the debugger... just plain and simply doesn't work (gets lost on "hello world"). However, the setup for the OS in general is really nice and easy - really hard for the user to screw themselves up.
you have to change the owner of the folder to your username....Reichfuher said:Ok, I webdev on my windows machine. My linux machine runs apache. I run samba just fine, and would like to share my www root over it so its easy to copy files to the server. I setup the samba user under my normal user account, but cannot get access to wwwroot without going SU of course, so how do I let my user have full access to a certain folder? I tried to chmod the folder to 777 but that didnt work. Thanks
Ah, thanks kirby-sanKirby said:you have to change the owner of the folder to your username....
chown owner linuxhq
(owner = the username you want to give ownership to
linuxhq = the directory/file you want to apply)
another way is to make a new group, add the user to that group, and add the directory to that group:
chgrp group hello
(group = group name
hello = the directory/file)
You are correct, I do not know how to add library paths to gcc without screwing up the few that it knows to begin with. I've tried to -L to the path, but then it forgets about where iostream.h is. Really gave me a lot of problems, and I found the best solution was to simply supply the library file in the command line.Scar_T said:So you're saying that Mandrake sux for development .

And the debugger doesn't work??????, I really don't know what debugger you use but "GDB rules".
Live CD means Linux will boot off the CD and will never touch your HD. All you need is around 256MB of RAM. With a distro like SLAX, you can send all the content of the CD to the RAM and be able to remove the CD.dhkimboa said:what you guys mean with the live cd?
I dont wanna be a developer
I just wanna be a regular linux user
damn... so much trouble for a linux
