    Is there a problem running Composer 2.x on Debian 10?

    I am confused by these alternatives. Composer is available as a package that can be installed with APT. It surprises me when I look at instructions for installing Composer on Debian 10, usually the Composer installer is recommended instead of the package through the apt repo. Can you possibly...

    Hypothetically, If Only One Could be available, Which One?

    Even even if this crazy situation could happen, It could only happen for a moment. If a moment ever came or only one copy of Linux or UNIX was available, it would only be a few minutes before a new version would be available fashion from the first .

    Tangential question: running slackware, do you have to install all the dependencies for packages by specifying them individually in conjunction with the command for installing a package? This is good information, succinctly stated. What more can a person hope to find? thank you! I feel safe...

    Is there a problem running Composer 2.x on Debian 10?

    I guess there must be a reason Debian 10 with latest updates installs Composer as version 1.8.6. Is it safe to assume that means Composer 2.x on Debian 10 will have problems?

    sql_mode in phpmyadmin with mariadb

    mysql is one of the best things that ever happened to me. When I started out in this line of work, I wanted to get a copy of Oracle, which at that time was a word that meant "serious relational database, not a toy," on my computer so I could see it and someday get paid for being able to run...

    Setting up Debian 10 on Windows 10

    Someday, a critical requirement likely will arise for running linux on a Windows machine. Till then, making linux run on Windows is a can kicked off a cliff, from which my back is turned and progressing forward means I won't be back to the linux on Windows if I can avoid it. Nothing is worth...

    Once I found the reference to this problem at VMWare, I rebooted, then interrupted the reboot to open the GNU GRUB Edit Menu. In there, I appended systemd.unit=emergency.target to the end of the line starting with linux. From there, resumed the boot that went immediately to emergency mode...
