linux: raped by a pack of n*ggers

why the fuck can't installing a program under linux ever fucking be easy.

Windows: download, install, run.
Linux: 12 pages of sudo, aptget, chmod and shit at the end of which even odds are you typod something and shit isn't going to work anyway. This is why linux will never be viable.

Thread title was potentially offensive. Is now certainly offensive. -- mobi

I masturbated a guy to death with my own hands
 
I quit thinking of linux as a good operating system years ago when I had issues with it thinking a 120 gig hard disk was a 4 gig hard disk... no matter what I changed with the hard disk manager, it still thought it was 4 gigs only....

Community was no help, I gave them all the info I had, the make of hard disk, all my hardware inside, etc. All I would get is "balalalalala linux is better then windows!" and that was it.

It's never going to be a real operating system until it matures, and that's far far far away

If you want to learn how to do it faster, open up mIRC and type in "Windows is better than Linux because you can install things faster on it". You'll have 35 Linux nerds showing you a better way to do it in a quest to prove to you it's superior.

Bah, just open Ubuntu software center, search, click install, done

Or if you've downloaded a .deb package, right click select install, its done.

So stroke one out over it?

If it so great why aren't you running it on your main rig? You're running Windows 7 on that one right?

Linux is great for a lot of utilitarian purposes. I understand the raw power of the OS, but I don't want to have to go through a page of script every time I want to install something.

You'll more likely get 35 nerds arguing with each other over which of 4-5 different open source packages best suits you, for a bunch of reasons you won't understand, and zero help.

Funny how you post this thread and don't say what distro you're using or what you're trying to install. Maybe then we could help? Dunno.

Funny, I dislike Windows for the same reason.

Switching soundcards on Windows:
1) Uninstall old driver
2) Download driver cleaner, because you know it's not completely gone
3) Boot into safe mode and run the driver cleaner
4) Hope it actually works
5) Turn off computer, switch sound card
6) Hit up Google for new drivers
7) Hope it's in English
8) Close 30 windows that pop up after trying to download driver
9) Finally download the driver
10) Extract the driver
11) Install the driver
12) Reboot
13) Hope your new card is working


Doing the same thing in Linux:
1) Turn off computer
2) Switch sound cards
3) Boot up
4) OS tells you that your new card is ready to use and asks if you would like it to forget about your old sound card

This was with a rather recent card (Asus Xonar Essence STX). A friend and I each got one, and he shared with me the nightmare which was switching cards. Apparently the Creative drivers made life difficult.

I didn't even think about running into problems. I expected to turn off the computer, switch the cards, turn on the computer, and have it work immediately. That's exactly what happened.

i would reply with help with your problems, but i'm too busy organizing a project plan for a fourth linux sound driver package, this one will only be for amigas, commodore 64s, and tandy 1000s. the only thing it will have in common with the other linux sound implementations is it also does not work.

Linux is pretty easy... Maybe if you posted details someone could help, but it probably makes you feel better to just complain.
