Re: Improvements?



I just permanently deleted FC forever. You are better off with SUSE or Slackware.

Well, the Everything option was a way to get EVERY package on the
discs (not just what's shown). If there's a way to get the extra
packages through pirut, but not the web, that would be great. Pirut
kept crashing on test2, so that gets annoying. I'm on wifi, so yeah.
The Ndsiwrapper was a side question, and I could not get it to work.
I'll try again.

So is there a way to do this with Pirut (or other util)?
