Well, that 2 am remaster caaused me to lose my memeory. Wrote up a wrong report later in the day.
The first effort to fix the problems failed, but a later effort yesterday evening succeeded.
I now have a knoppix with some programs removed to make space, with an infant's program that I wrote for my son (in python) installed, and a link to the same on the desktop. Also, a link on the startup webpage in konqueror that points to bslug.org which is our linux users group here in the Bahamas which we are finally getting well off of the ground.
Spent too many hours yesterday working on a winxp BSOD registry problem. Knoppix to the rescue allowing the backup of long un-backed up client files prior to the fix attempt. Decent success on the fix, ran out of time. Gotta go back this morning to finish up.
Will be very happy when the apps are there which will allow me to push harder for my clients to adopt linux wholesale. Now it is mostly for servers. I find replacing their accounting apps with free software to be one of hte biggest holdups.
I know I could go to non-free on linux and at least be a little better off, but it is hard to recommend doing all the work needed to move out of one lock in position only to move into another lock in position.
SQL-Ledger may get there with the release of the POS module. I need to get in motion and make some progress with my project on savannah as well.
