Re: [trinity-users] What is WRONG With TDE PClinuxOS???

All this bruhhah about PClinuxOS has caused me to sit here a few minutes 

I ran it on this box for about a year, but some might call me a power 
user.  My parting of the ways was when I needed to build something for 
the 3rd or 4th time, but the libraries to built it were not avaiable in 
the repos, AND Texstar refused to add them.  Net result was I installed 
the kit I needed in the form of a wheezy based iso put up by the 
linuxcnc crowd.  I haven't had to do searching since as it uses the 
wheezy repo's except for a pinned kernel.
