It seems to me that this group needs a FAQ.
It's too annoying to me to read 'where to get Adobe Acrobat for Linux'
and 'There SHOULD be freeware Motif' articles.
I dislike killfiles and I don't want to kill anything from this group,
so my suggestion is to write a FAQ.
If you want, I would be a maintainer. So, post me your Qs and As!
Here's a beginning Q and A-s. Correct me and my english if I'm wrong.
Q: Where to get Adobe Acrobat for Linux?
A: Adobe doesn't think Linux is an OS, so it doesn't want to
spend money for developing Linux version.
PDF files may be read by GhostView/GhostScript and by freeware
PDF viewer called xpdf. It can be found at ftp.x.org and on sunsite.
Q: Where to get freeware version of Motif?
A: Nowhere. Motif is still commercial. There is a project called
Lesstif (www.hungry.com ???) to develop freeware Motif clone.
Q: Why gcc fails with fatal signal 11
A: It's because your RAM chips are too slow (70ns on Pentium).
gcc is the VERY hardnut application and it tryes to get all from your PC.
Other apps may continue to work when gcc fails.
The only known solution is to upgrade your SIMMs to 60ns ones.
More to come.
Waiting for your comments....
