  • Installing Slashcode is a NIGHTMARE. The documentation is TERRIBLE. Even the "idiot's guide" is hard compared to the Drupal or PHPnuke install. I will be running a webhosting service soon on a dedicated 1.5ghz server with 1gb of bandwidth. If you are interested, contact us at spam@paradoxpoetry.com.
    • What kind of crack are you smoking?

      How hard is "make install" then "install-slashsite" ??

      Just because a system doesn't have the software that's required by slash to install, that's not slash's fault.

      That's like me bitching about having to install crap to get live journal installed and running.

      Yeah, it'd be nice if the distro's came with better LAMP setups out of the box...

      • suggesting we come up with just that - a "slash" friendly distro distributed by iso image.

        It wasn't accepted. :-)

        • Not that I'm got a lot of experience building distro's...

          but I don't find it all that hard to grab the tarballs to perl, mod_perl, apache and mysql and install.

          Honestly, the most difficult problem I've had with it, that I can even recall, is a library problem on redhat 9 after I installed perl from the tarball (after removing the rpms). Apps were missing libperl.so.

          Redhat's pretty close. W/ v9 and 8.x you could get away with firing up cpan and installing the modules it was missing.

          I can't vouch for any
