it's been two weeks (or more - time flies) and paldo performs amazingly well each and every day.
I am just re-installing paldo-testing-32bit after running "unstable" for a few days. I wanted to see what is to come and it was worth the experience as GIMP 2.5 looks very promising.
I do have a quick question and would value the communities input. What "other" software packages do you install after the basic setup?
For example, I add:
firefox + flash_player
acroread (becasue i read/create a lot of pdf documents)
blender (to get the dependencies so that blender 2.47 form blender.org will run)
bluefish + phpmyadmin + apache (only on one machine)
yafray (for high end renders or some of my blender scenes)
VirtualBox (to run/create flash content on (virtual) Windows XP)
recordmydesktop (to make video tutorials/screen captrues)
filezilla (ftp transfers)
freemind (not tried this yet but liked the demo movie)
scribus (desktop publishing)
skype (only on laptop)
vlc (to play tutorials and the animations we create with blender)
What i'm especially interested in is:
make-iso/make-disk-image ... anybody have comments on those?
Last. I'm not interested in compiz stuff as fast performance is top priority (over looks). Also not interested in security stuff like nmap etc...
But if anybody has a useful application that i didn't list, please take the time and respond
P.S. VirtualBox could not be installed on the "testing branch".
The error message is:
The following packages have been skipped as no binary is available yet:
Something doesn't seem right here?
