    Hi All,


    Well I took the plunge and move my BBS over to CentOS, bit of a leaning curve for me as I have never used it.. or anything like it.. I've always used debian, mnt, or ubuntu, and back in the day slacware and FreeBSD.

    The BBS compiled and is running very smothly so far!..

    Next project, A second BBS (MBSE) Under TahrPup.. (puppy)

    We'll see how this goes,


    I have ArchLinux and some others on Standby!

    :)

    Take Care.

    I've been setting up mine under CentOS and have had no major issues thus far, outside of some of the Sunrise doors not working properly. Hit me up if you have any questions!

    Well.. so far so good.. the new binaries and libs compiled nicely, yum made it east to get all the preresiquites i needed.. dosemu working flawlesslyly.. copied my old config onto my new build and viola. system is running peak performance.. (or at least seems to be) website even runs better. I used the development install of CentOs, don't really like the grphhical package manager, but Yum is doind what is needed.. Thanks for the assistance, I may take you up on it one day..
