    Then why are you using Windows? assuming you're a long time windows user.
    not all Windows software runs perfectly on Linux.

    Judging by what he said he would prefer the opensource alternative.

    I am because I have not discovered Open-Source operating systems like GNU/Linux before, but I still have hundreds of games on Steam.

    For the download speeds, try and see if your package manager can select different mirror servers. As for the missing packages, you could probably request them, or even manually install them with a tarball (manual installation isn't recommended though).

    After several weeks of using arch linux, I am satified with it. It's a good fucking feel that every day you update you are always on the latest kernel and apps, and it doesn't break. The system is incredibly responsive on 99% usage on my shitty single-core cpu, not like on Win7 where you have to use the taskmanager, and some more stuff like that, and the bash is a powerful thing.
    I find it sad that computer illiterate people, even some IT teacher in my school don't know jackshit about Linux and its distros, and those are the people who say linux is shit even if they haven't use it. I want to punch them in the face.

    You forgot to say that it's open-source and most distros are also built on mostly open-source software, but I guess long-time windows users don't find it important, while it really is.
    That was what I meant by free.

    Edited:

    Not true..
    Not completely true and somewhat unfair, given a second consideration, I agree.
    Windows doesn't always break after updates and Linux doesn't always not break after updates, but I do personally see a trend in such directions.

    Help.

    I'm currently tryingto install Reaver

    However, when I try to run ./configure it tells me

    "checking for sqlite3_open in -lsqlite3... no
    error: sqlite3 library not found!"

    But "apt get install sqlite3" tells me I already have the livrary installed.

    What do?

    You probably don't have the headers. In a lot of distros the library binaries and the headers are kept separate.

    The package is most likely called sqlite3-dev or some variation of that. You could do a search for sqlite3 and it'll show it to you.

    I don't think it's an issue with headers there, as it says it's attempting to link against the library and failing

    I searched around for a bit and it says that the old sqlite2 used that sqlite_open thing that is mentioned there.

    Seems like a mistake on that reaver programs end, no?

    I tried 1.1 instead of 1.4 and it works.
    The newest version would be better though since it has a fancy tool that shows whether the AP has WPS enabled or not, now I have to try them all manually...

    Fedora 15 is pretty horrible, can anyone recommend me a distro? I'm pretty comfortable with the terminal and linux in general and stuff. I was thinking maybe Debian? Arch Linux seems a bit daunting.

    Arch Linux is actually pretty nice and you should try it.

    The Wiki describes the solutions to most of the problems you might encounter, and several installation guides.

    Well I got arch all setup with conky, xfce4, compiz and a bunch of other stuff. Really gonna put some effort into sticking with linux now and I think I'm falling in love the only problem is there are just a few little commands I forget. Like what is that command/package that displays the arch symbol and all this information about your system?

    Basically it does this:

    Basically it does this:
    Code:
    iwlist [interface] scan
    Replace [interface] with your wireless card's name. Usually something like wlan0, but could be something else.
    You can use iwconfig to find the name.

    Yes, there is. If you have iwconfig, I think iwconfig wlan0 scan or similar should do that

    Haven't done that for over a year, though, 'cause I'm not using my old laptop anymore, so not sure.

    Yeah, ignore me

    Every distro I have ever used has installed just fine, and given me the choice to install a bootloader or not.

    I think the problem, is that this option is hidden so that clueless users don't get frightened. The option should be there tho...

    Unless you are VERY bound by older software, you should almost use the latest.

    It's a shame a terminal that accepted ex commands would essentially just... Be ex.

    Have any of you tried running vim as your login terminal?

    They make aliases to :q and :e in bash (The default command-line interpreter in most distros) to exit the current session and launch vim (An interactive command-line text editor)
    The thing is that they're formatted like vim commands (colon followed by a specific character or sequence of characters)
    And I probably should use less parenthesis
