  1. What frog script?

    Do you have a link?

    Happy holidays :-)
  2. The frog script is...well...a script that installs a lot of things :p, nt much science into it, but is a little bit more comfortable :p, similar to ubuntu's automatix

    here's the link:

    According to the wiki it doesn't work with FC6 yet and probably will not work with any x86_64 version anyway.

    Quite frankly you do not need frog at all, it's just a front-end to yum.

    You can use yumex, or "add/remove software" instead, both of which have a GUI.


    You probably want to install http://rpm.livna.org/rlowiki/UsingLivna

    GL :-D
  4. While a "macro installer" script is nice sometimes, I usually find it's worth the time to ensure that you have just what you want on your system and nothing more. Of course, this is my personal preference (and why I choose Gentoo and the ilk) and the "one size fits many" approach may be just what the doctor ordered, hence the beauty of choice.

    To both you and linux_0, Happy Holidays! Now back to playing with my new printer and pair of 285's :D
  5. bmouring: Great advice as always :-D

    Happy holidays to you as well!


    How's your printer working? Is it Linux / BSD friendly?

    I'm sure your 285s are kicking %^%* :-D
  6. I'll add my voice to the festive greetings :)

    Hope you all have a nice break. I'm back to work in the morning :(

    ... but only 3 days to new year :twisted:
  7. Yep the printer's Linux friendly, made sure to get one with full PCL network capability and such, works great over network or USB (Dell even included a PPD file in their install cd so to let those who don't want to just blindly run an installer get things working).
  8. Awesome :-D

    Good to hear.

    I hope the toner is reasonably priced.
  9. Yeah, I also made sure that third-party toner was available for a reasonably price: $50 per color 4k cartridge and about $30 for a 4k black ain't bad, especially considering what ink costs :)
  10. Good to hear it's reasonable.

    That's pretty good considering ink is 50-60 bux a pop for a few hundred sheets.

    :-D
