[hackdaworld] hdwlinux on google
i just googled for hdwlinux. www.hdwlinux.org is first hit (thanks to
maik for hosting) - though i would prefere the dyndns address to be first.
i recognized a cool quit message from ceduardo :))
*[22:53] -!- hioki [~firstname.lastname@example.org] has left #rocklinux ("And
HDW Linux 0.1 is officially BugFree(tm), so if you receive any
bug-reports on it, you know they are just evil lies.")
*thanks to joel maisenhelder ( http://joel.maisenhelder.net/ ) who put
hdw on his link list. as far as i can see from his webpage he was doing
stuff on rocklinux, the inspiration hdw grew up from. at the moment i
can't imagine who it is - maybe i just know him by his nickname. thanks
but there is something bad on the google results too. well, actually
what makes it that bad, is the person who wrote it!
23:36 < dr_insolito> rocklinux == hdw ?
23:37 < Mike1> dr_insolito: _NO_!
23:37 < tcr> hdw?
23:37 < Mike1> dr_insolito: hdw = poor imitation / copy of rock linux source
okay, here we go. first of all i think it is not an imitation. as stated
on the hdw-linux intro page, it is an adaption of the rock linux scripts
( actually just its concepts ) to the way lfs build a linux system. it
is NOT a copy, it is definetly poor, but not a copy! :(
i remember Mike1 ( miguel bolanos ) was involved in hdw development.
actually what he did was ... nothing! well some lousy attempts to get
colors in hdw buildscript .. which was fixed by demian (jonathan) as it
was bullshit. ah, and i nearly forgot about a perl script he tried to
merge. as he actually forgot to exchange the name "rocklinux" in the
scripts it was not applied ... and this person talks about hdw as a copy
of rock :(
and beside blaming hdw, he is imho offending the rock guys as the hdw
scripts are definetly too "poor" as to call it a copy. :(
well anyways, imho hdw kicks asses - i will use it for the rest of my life!
thanks to rock anyways - especially to clifford wolf 's brilliancy.
cu soon folks! have fun with hdw,
ps: maybe it was good to read about that - i think i will work on hdw
the weekend now :)
