Re: Linux distributions.



Hi Jonathan,

My be you misunderstood my question about RH.
I am perfectly confident with Slackware. Your are right,
I have colleges using Debian and SuSe and they all say
Debian is good but SuSe is better from security point of view.
SuSe has also turned out to contributed a lot to XFree86.

modeprobe.

No, this not strictly related to X in any way. It is supposed to find
out what "modules" to be inserted into the kernel. It is normaly
defined in /lib/modules/... depending on the installation.
char-mayor-226 tells it should be a device /dev/... Can not currently
find the standard allocation of device mayor allocations. I have it.
Just can't locate it just now.

Hans.
