    Might sound stupid, but I just gave up RH for Red-Flag

    I though it was based on Red Hat and used the rpm package manager ?

    yeah, but I think it is better to compile software, right?
    since RMP dependcy is a pain in the neck.

    Why is it better ?
    There are advantages and disadvantages to both.

    I hardly have any luck with compiling software, there almost always seem to be errors which lead to more errors and more errors. Scarcely has anything gone smoothly, that's why kickstart is a dream come true.

    I dunno man, many books I have read suggested it is always a good idea to compile software than using RPM packages and There is always sth to learn from compiling a software. I think I am learning bit by bit from installing stuff. ha ha. I suppose I am going to become a Linux Installing expert rather then a truly Linuxer
