    Yes that was certainly a mistake. Thanks Superstoned.

    I just noticed that the sample chapter from "Linux in a Nutshell" offered on
    the O'Reilly site is about "Red Hat and Debian Package Managers" (PDF).
    I hope you'll agree that a pointer to it is relevant to this thread.

    wrong attitude

    "THATS how you learn, not by asking us... "

    This is definitely the wrong attitude, held by many in the linux community, and a definite detrement to a more widespread acceptance and usage of linux and in this case knoppix. Don't forget a lot of people are looking in on these posts, people who are considering becoming knoppix users. We don't want to discourage them with bad manners, condescending attitudes, snobbish behaviour, etc. Always be as helpful and courteous as possible, otherwise remain silent.

    If we're done flaming eachother, what I don't understand is how do you get a list of what is available to install via apt-get?

    Regards,

    I have to agree with Turbine,

    I admit I am a newbie, and I am quite sure I can be a pain in the b*tt, naggy even, when it comes to getting assistance.

    But, I love Knoppix, and I know many times, the Site Admins have pointed me to the FAQ "sticky" posts at the top of the Forum's - In fact, I was pointed to this one a day or so ago, to get information on getting and installing "packages" and downloaded programs into Knoppix/Debian.

    I LOVE to get input on finding my own answers, that is what seperates us humans from other species on this planet. But, from a newbie stand-point, sometimes us "newbies" don't "know" those "security" codes that are kept locked in die-hard Unix/Linux users minds - and we ask. Sometimes those questions are "dumb" and "simpleton" questions, but the response is important, not the attituide. Treating people with respect, and even if they don't know something that you are privy to, doesn't make them any less of a human being.

    I respond to any posting here, and may times, someone else posts right after me, with better information. I am learning though. Who knows, someday, I might actually post something that is looked at by one of the Site Admins, and given praise - I hope someday

    Linux, to me, is a bright, shinny, brand new toy - it facinates me - and am jumping on the Linux Train with my new system. I would hope that someday, I will be as knowledgable about Linux as I am about Windows, DOS, and even Programming within both those areas. But, I need a lot of work, I know.

    Just my two cents worth,
    Cuddles
    [ps] Thanks for the apt-get information - I am sure that this posted sticky is going to be read many times in the future by myself to get the information to install all the great apps that Linux has to offer

    Here, take a look at this related thread:

    http://www.knoppix.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7021

    for some apt-get examples.

    Enjoy!
