Re: UNIX Newbie seeking help
I'm fairly new to the *nix world but would like to try my hand at
setting up a stand alone unix box with KDE desktop support. I would also
like to take a stab at programming and have been searching for languages
to learn. I was hoping to find something extremely powerful but easy to
learn and have ran into Walter Bright's D Programming Language
(http://www.digitalmars.com/d/) and its GCC port
(http://home.earthlink.net/~dvdfrdmn/d/). Seems to be able to do the trick.
What does all this have to do with you? Well, I was hoping someone would
point me in the right direction of how to setup DFBSD so that I can
connect to the internet, and download the KDE desktop and how to the GCC
version of D. Additionally, I was hoping for some guidance of the best
way to set up my box I can experience the power of unix with a GUI
safety net just in case I loose my way.
Thanks for your understanding and support.
I see that you are in the seek of the ultimate handbook!
Luckily DragonFly can provide one :-)
