yes, which I've used extensively but it too isn't complete and this looked
like a likely place (pointed to from those forums) to ask questions. I
guess I just stumbled into a rant in a bad time. I still feel that we are
mostly working with the same core apps (apps, not the OS) and the
discussion is relevant. If the apps have different configuration
formats/options based on OS flavor beyond location of files, then things
have diverged far worse than I would expect. I've also been using Linux
professionally back to Slackware in the 1993 timeframe, as well as RedHat
and MkLinux and chose KnoppMyth as a reasonable place to start for this
with much of the configuration being automated. hell, I've done graphic
board drivers for X10.4 and up in my professional life but that doesn't
mean I need to config something like this from first principles. Eventually
I'll customize the sources and contribute back but I would think people
would want feedback of HowTo inconsistencies, in fact, many of the files
I've downloaded and threads, ask for it.
