Bible program since I happen to use those

Hello Mark,

I wrote a package-wish here  Wink


Thank you Andreas. I tried to install from source (something I have done before) but I kept running into various missing packages in the ./configure process. I think I stopped when I could not find one in the repo's and I can't remember which package it was right now. I didn't have the time (or maybe the knowledge) to quest through dependency hell)

Thank you,

Thanks for the greeting! I know what you mean about linux. I do wish my windows games would be ported or that wine/crossover would catch up on my games or that I was a coder and could work to make that happen.

Other than that relatively small segment I am truly impressed with linux from where it has come since the redhat 6 days (my first distro back in 2000 or 2001). You are correct. it is hard to choose. Pardus does seem to offer a good balance of recent and stable. Mint is great but I couldn't even get kde to install properly for some reason this time - community 8. I have been in ubuntu derivative land for quite a while and am enjoying a return to a kde based distro and think kde 4 is finally coming up to snuff and pardus seems to be quite up to  snuff.

Compiling from source - too me it looks like I will have to do that with a Bible program since I happen to use those - haven't found one in the repos. Not entirely surprising that it wasn't there as this is a Turkish distro. It is one of the prettiest yet most professional looking kde distros out there.

Andreas - thanks for your welcome

in History my favorite periods are the early to middle 100's (300-800). Being of Irish lineage I have been studying early Celtic and Celtic Christian history which has led to a study of the early medieval period in European History, mostly after Rome really lost power. I find wriitings of the time fascinating.

atolboo - thanks for your welcome

SW - thanks for your welcome. Sorry you had to take a long flight for one day of business - hope you had more to do in the usa.

It is a nice city, alot of culture with all the universities and there was a realization, a sense of history when I first lived there of it being one of the birthplaces of America.

Of course we are still babies in comparison to Europe in the concept of history. I would love to be able to travel Europe and the middle East some day.

thanks again

Gotta say - love Pardus. It is nice to find a real good kde distro that just somehow feels right and is so responsive. I just wiped my windows partition, which means I will give up a few games I like but its worth it.

Have a good time (to quote the old SuSe line)
