Fedora OS is just a linux distribution orignating from Redhat, so why not?

1st off: stupid question. 2nd: Yes, I use Fedora Core 2, and DMD works just fine.

I dont think there is such a thing as a "stupid question". Just because you have a little knowledge of a subject, does not make you more intelligent than me or anyone else who does not have that knowledge. Im damn sure there are subjects that I have much more knowledge than you or anyone else on this NG(my work for instance). In fact the only usefull information that I have learnt from your answer is that, you are a dickhead. regards Phill.

Oh no? What we learn from your question, is that you havent't looked at the distrubution. It doesn't do any evil automatic installation, and if it wouldn't work... then it would just be it (although it barely needs anything, so it does). You're definately not damaging the system with it. I've tried to use Linux and dropped it. Fact is, one has to know it well or leave it alone. This relates to nearly all modern Unix distributions out there. The notable exceptions that are POSIX compatible but don't feel like Unix are MacOS-X, BeOS (which i myself use), QNX and some others. -eye

that didnt work on both windows and Linux. The problem for me was, if it didnt work I wasnt going to format my HD and all, just to find out that it didnt work. So your "then it would just be it" statement is rediculous. Phill.

I can recall the newsgroup being very helpful in the cases someone is actually not getting something to run, if this someone is able to say what he tried and what went wrong. This helpful folk includes myself from time to time. I sometimes spend an hour or two debugging code from people whom i don't know and patiently explain what's wrong with it and how to fix it. So please don't value this as being unfriendly to you, it's just that in all the years it's one of the most strange (would you say "rediculous"?) threads i'm seeing.

Oh yes, "then it would just be it" statement is very ridiculous. But your urge to format a HD instead of searching for a problem source, and placing a question without taking a look at the subject also is. :))) I think we have all spent a disproportionate amount of time on this thread, including yourself. And mind you, a new language with a somewhat less-than-perfect compiler is not something for people who are too tight on time, since one is guaranteed to run into small problems, lack of previous work, insufficent documentation, etc. It also requieres a fair amount of experience with different subjects, although given time we help one gain it. -eye the photoallergic

Ok point taken.

Id just like to say that I havent formatted my HD,
so I dont have a problem source(besides this thread).
I originally asked the question prior to reading anything
or doing anything about installing Fedora, because I
wanted to know that I can still use everything on
my machine that I enjoy.
I thought I would get a  yes or no answer, instead of
what I got.

One day i hope you have children!

OK, so you *don't* have Linux/Fedora installed yet. Now it makes somewhat more sense.
I thought I would get a  yes or no answer, instead of

You did get a clear "yes". And, well, a ton of junk.

At the time, and quiet often while I am on here my almost 4 yr old daughter was/is climbing and swinging around my neck. I was wishing that she was swinging around your neck :o)) So it was a joke, that was not meant to be posted. cheers Phill.

In defense of the question, there've been a lot of rumors of programs not working on Fedora for unknown reasons.

Sorry, I did not mean to be a dickhead. I wasn't insulting you, but rather your question. To me, it seems that the obvious answer was yes. In article <pan.2004.07.25.07.54.07.144823 teqdruid.com>, teqDruid says...

Do you use std.socket now? I have Fedora up and running now anyway. The only problem that I have is with Thunderbird and the way it displays its posts. I like how MS Outlook displays it posts in a tree for each thread, its much easier to follow a thread. Phill.

You might like to try "Pan" It's the newsreader I currently use on Linux. It works quite well and the display is quite configurable. You should be able to get it working on Fedora. Also, the newsreader that comes with kde is quite good.

Have you tried the thread view? Just click the cartoon talking bubble to the left in the list of posts. Works like a charm (although it can be (was in previous versions, at least) somewhat hard to find new posts in old threads). Lars Ivar Igesund

If you click the leftmost column header the threads should collapse to tree view just like Outlook. I use Thunderbird for my mail in Windows and love it. Another nice aspect is that if you dual boot you can share the same profile between Windows and Linux. Sean
