I just have a lot of respect for anyone who maintains,develops or just has the passion enough to learn,the demands of trying to understand all the various compatibilities and idiosyncracities is quite a challenge ,i was simply empathising.
However,the difficulties of getting a context across in text based communication are well known, also differences in irony,wit and sense of humour (in my country they dont even HAVE a sense of humour,unless you judge 'kill the pariah' funny
Also,i understand ..various quips across the forum ..makes it difficult for moderators and users to help each other in technical problems .
Apologies,i didnt intend to be a pain..but im aware i could be interpreted as so .. im just enthusiastic and trying to be friendly and fun.Ill be more thoughtful in the future.
And everyone ..enjoy SalixOS ..and technology ...its crazy fantastic
PS- With regards to WICD ,it seems to be a reoccuring issue for most of all distros,and appears to be something that relates to the brand and/or configuration of the wireless chip...a simple precaution beforehand would be check http://www.wicd.net/
however currently their Hardware Table link manifests as HTTP 404
.maintaining websites is difficult too?
Ergo-SalixOS recognised ALL of MY hardware,so im a happy bunny
