sidux points of clarity

Posted by: Anonymous [ip:] on October 11, 2008 09:11 PM
This was mentioned by another poster, but I want to highlight a few things for accuracy and completeness.

1, People seem to use the names Sidux and sidux interchangeably here. According to the sidux site, the correct product name is sidux with no caps.

2. sidux is sensitive about package managers because of the volatile nature of the project. Several of the founders strongly discourage the use of kpackage, aptitude, synaptic, or any package manager other than dpkg or apt-get. Furthermore, smxi is a highly recommeded tool, but it is not included in the sidux installation because of "software freedom" principles. sidux adheres strongly to free software and all that it entails.

3. Do obtain smxi as documented elsewhere in this thread - you can also find the information in the sidux online documentation.


Return to Sidux grows on you
