I went out and shelled out CASH MONEY for CND 1.0... I thought it would be a nice investment. Well, in some ways, it was, but there were some things about it I just didn't like.
I have been working on recompiling the kernel for a while now. Why? Because each time I do, I get an error (or 100) that there's a parse error in this file, this other one came down with a serious case of malaria, yet another decided to move south for the winter. The long and short of it, I have to edit all these files to correct the syntax errors that are in them.
Well, that's only part of it. Heaven forbid you should compile, and then at another point, need to compile again... ALL OF THE HEADER FILES ARE WIPED CLEAR OUT OF EXISTENCE!
I've taken it to the point where I have a backup copy of the kernel source in its own ACCOUNT so that I should be able to retrieve the original files if this occurs... Don't worry. Still doesn't work.
If I'm the only one out there with this problem, I apologize for *ing and moaning like this. It's just extremely frustrating. If you're thinking about going CND, I post this as a warning.
After the $100+ dollars I spent on this *FREE* OS (between the Previews and CND 1.0), I have decided to do the "right" thing and go back to Slackware within a few weeks.
Oh well, had to get that off my chest.
