    FTFY. We can't rip on the BE&C Rant users too much, being a relative "safe space" and all.

    Pfft, budgeting is a function which is abstracted through the synergy with financing to bring upon the organisation a disruptive method of increasing cost efficiency

    wintermute000 which one are you?

    You missed 'jack of all trades, master of none' in the list.

    Everyone believes everyone else is incompetent.

    Fuck Boxbe and any kind of Opt in spam control rubbish that doesn't work. People who use this service probably thinks they're smart. I can imagine the type. You'd tell them how things actually works, they'd come up with a way that they think it works. And no, I'd never whitelist myself on stupid service like Boxbe. If the person wants my email, they can go whitelist me or fuck themselves.

    Just to dig this up, you're bang on it was a third party dpkg file and that sorted it out nicely, learned something new about dpkg and apt-get :thumbup:
    Sidenote, why on earth does debian base 8 install not come with curl, I would have thought that was like, *nix default?

    APT still takes the cake for package management. I know a lot of folks who sing the praises of YUM, but honestly APT let's you fix almost any system in any state and get yourself up and running without hours of manual dependency tracking.

    Don't get me wrong - I love RedHat's paid support. But Debian remains my preferred "Linux for sysadmins" for a reason.

    Yeah, it's one of those "whose idea of default is right?" type questions.

    I'm currently dogfooding KDE Project Neon for work (more or less up to date KDE on a Ubuntu LTS base), and it's missing a tonne of stuff that I would consider "default". They keep it pretty bare bones, even for a desktop (the KDE text editor "kate" didn't even get installed).

    But hey, that's why we have Puppet, right? :)

    Haha yep absolutely. I honestly thought curl was a unix command but a quick google tells me I am completely wrong.

    I was going to spin up centos to get a handle on yum and all that, being so commonly used, but I just couldn't get the darn thing to boot correctly. Debian was enough of a pain, have to set nomodeset just to make it boot on my system to install nvidia drivers, then do the same again because the drivers never actually did it themselves.
