Just had a very nice email from Roger, W3SZ about a few issues.
You might have gotten the wrong impression that I have been pushing
Mandrake. It is a long story how I got involved with this
Distribution and the details are really not important. Because
I like the way it installs and I have seen many opinions stating
that is is very close to RH. I started to use it and thought it
should work as well as RH.
It has probably more to do with the .com bubble than the quality
of the software. There is no question that it is very nice as I
stated before, but it might well be not the way to get to reliable
Linrad installations, we are doing things with Mandrake outside its
normal use. Perhaps being installed and used on a cheap internet
machine. Not to compile Kernels Who will tell?
I rate Roger's opinion very high. He is not what I call a linux
talker, or C/C++ programmer for 10 years, Roger got his system going,
one of a few I believe, by just following common sense such as using
a proven 2 sound card driver.
Anyway I do not want to be responsible for people getting into a
lot of trouble by starting on a perhaps not such an efficient path.
I am just writing this for those that go by opinions of others to
select things in the beginning. I do at times, Roger has a proven
track record and that should count for a lot. He has had simple and
full 96 Khz wide systems with dual channel front ends, they work
and he is using it.
Then, it it getting late back east and I noticed in the back ground
of Roger's email a remark about the input functions for the
page, not working, perhaps I got it wrong.
Once in a in while I get messages with a name, a call. perhaps an URL
but no other data. Not sure whether this has been attempts to
get date into the collection. ( I have other of those kind of pages
on the net ) for inputs.
If anyone has tried to input data into the collection and felt
that the the system did not work, please, please try again.
As a matter of fact you should get back feedback when you "send"
your inputs. I just checked it, all fields work fine as they should.
Also there is no real need to use this. If you want something
on that dote you can e-mail me and I will put it on with the source.
