Virtual Richard M. Stallman

Postby Gerd50 on Fri Dec 16, 2011 1:16 pm

I have no problems with running non free software. But just found the Virtual Richard M. Stallman vrms package.

Code: Select all
vrms

says this:

Code: Select all
Non-free packages installed on rudi-ratlos

24 non-free packages, 1.7% of 1451 installed packages.
13 contrib packages, 0.9% of 1451 installed packages.


There are some non-frees i really don't need and if i delete them, i'll come a little bit closer to RMS idea of free software :lol:

I see the vrms package as a joke. But as joke with a background worth think about.

In my testing system i use sgfxi and the result looks much better than in my sid.

Code: Select all
            Non-free packages installed on rudi-ratlos

unrar                               Unarchiver for .rar files (non-free version)
w32codecs                       win32 binary codecs

             Contrib packages installed on rudi-ratlos

flashplugin-nonfree                   Adobe Flash Player - browser plugin
ttf-mscorefonts-installer           Installer for Microsoft TrueType core fonts

  2 non-free packages, 0.1% of 1378 installed packages.
  2 contrib packages, 0.1% of 1378 installed packages.


Hah, this shows me i don't need firmware-realtek in sid. I move over to clean up at once :lol:
