    Re: Are you a Linux geek, using Linux without X?

    I almost always have a installation on my oldest computer that runs something with commandline oly. I had minix without x. debian lenny and now it is a FreeBSD installation.

    I use x in that and I have xfce installed but I boot into a console only. sometimes I dont start x other times i do. I use elinks as browser and nanao as texteditor. I mainly use my computers to learn programming.

    or I use them to record music and I also have a single computer i use to wacth televison youtube and my ripped dvd collection.
    it is the only one that is important to me that it has all the codecs installed.

    Re: Are you a Linux geek, using Linux without X?

    While I can get around fluently and do everything without X or my desktop. I am a sucker for eyecandy!

    I keep 2 terms open on my first desktop just to do many things I only know how to do on the CLI. I also use IRC on the terminal screens.

    I use Debian in a headless server via SSH.

    It is not a workstation or desktop.

    I don't want to stereotype or categorise.. but generally.. dyslexics do it with pictures.

    Re: Are you a Linux geek, using Linux without X?

    I combine working in text consoles and the X server. I usually want to compile source code on a text console because of all the text output, for example, plus that I like the feeling when it's just black and white.

    All my servers run Debian - without X (apart from 1) and all run from the command line - usually via ssh from my (ubuntu - running X) laptop.

    Re: Are you a Linux geek, using Linux without X?

    What I have done just for the hell of it is to get my wife to monitor my KDE desktop, and, while remotely logged in via SSH, issue 'sudo /etc/init.d/kdm stop' and she immediately phones me up and says 'hey, your screen shut down and changed to text'.



    Thats the closest I've got to non-X usage.

    CLI versions are for servers, not desktop PC's at home ( answer: no, all my machines are running w/ X ). Let me guess .. I'm not a geek ?

    Browsing the web without a good browser does not make you a GEEK.
