Hello

Post by JAFOLou » Sun Oct 07, 2018 12:51 pm

Hello after reading many years and trying Iearn... I mean attempting to use Lunix I finally have a laptop I've donated to the cause. My old tower is still traumatized with trying to use other distros. So I'm sure in time I'll have questions. I just used gparted to get a fresh ext4 format and broke it into 3 200gig partitions. Next the install attempt.

I always enjoyed all the information as I browsed these forums. In the end I just want to at least set up one program I use for work on here. I'll be sure I'll ask that later in time.
