I've taken programming classes and learned the hard way that the only way to ensure that my software worked correctly on the teacher's machine was to have a matching development environment. In practice, this can be very expensive and/or time consuming to achieve. Fortunately, matching the Linux distribution make, model, and version was sufficient. Now there are more options -- notably, virtual machines. I suggest that you ask your instructor to pick a free VMware Linux virtual appliance and that the teacher and students all use that: http://www.vmware.com/vmtn/appliances/directory/cat/45 HTH, David _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
