Quote from: Bregalad on April 04, 2018, 04:13:33 PMThere is no such thing a a "flavor" of linux. I don't know wher you got the idea such a thing ever existed.If you mean "desktop" or something like that ?KDE is rather nice but is bloated, Cinnamon is nice and closer to Windows in how it works, so I use either of those two. I don't like the other desktops much.
Quote from: FAST6191 on April 04, 2018, 05:17:03 PMFlavour is a pretty common slang term for variation, one I see used often enough with such things. In this case it would stand for distro/distribution.
Quote from: Bregalad on April 09, 2018, 02:40:55 AMBUT sometimes you'll encounter software only available as a binary RPM, and then trying to convert it to a Debian package is futile, so using Fedora is the only viable alternative.
Quote from: Jorpho on April 09, 2018, 06:46:06 PMWasn't there a program called Alien that can be used to convert RPMs to DEB? Or does that not work very well?
Quote from: Kiyoshi Aman on April 11, 2018, 10:45:15 PMBinary-only software is a blight, and should generally be avoided.If there's software you need which is only available as a binary and not shipped solely as RPM/DEB, feel free to post it here and, if possible, I will test it against Adelie's gcompat support library.
