13:30 binOp hello
13:31 binOp d
13:34 willthechill hello
13:34 binOp hi
13:34 binOp so i install
13:34 willthechill binOp: I assume you are jcynth AKA snopp doge?
13:34 binOp yes, yes i am
13:34 willthechill okay great, it is 7:30am here so I will be going to sleep soon
13:35 willthechill I have been awake working all night long
13:35 binOp ok... no problem i am always online...
13:35 binOp yes.... programmers...
13:35 willthechill so first things first, you must start with fresh Ubuntu or Xubuntu, only v14.04 or v16.04 is supported by me
13:37 binOp i have linux
13:37 binOp linux lite,
13:37 willthechill okay I've never heard of "Linux Lite"
13:37 willthechill anyway, after you have Ubuntu installed, then use the new RPerl installer script
13:37 willthechill https://github.com/wbraswell/rperl/blob/master/script/rperl_installer.sh
13:38 willthechill follow the directions carefully, do not just hit "yes" for every answer, it will require you to actually read the directions and make sure you know what you are doing
13:38 willthechill on a fresh Ubuntu install, the RPerl installer script should work fine
13:38 binOp ok... so i really need to install ubuntu?
13:38 binOp ok ok...
13:38 willthechill no, but I can't help you if you choose to use something else
13:38 willthechill I only provide tech support for Ubuntu or derivatives
13:39 willthechill because I only USE Ubuntu derivatives myself
13:39 binOp ah... ok
13:39 willthechill so I can't help you with something which I do not have myself!
13:39 willthechill if you have an apt-based distribution, then the RPerl installer script might work
13:39 willthechill or it might not
13:40 willthechill so like I said, choose a good distribution, like Xubuntu
13:40 willthechill then run the RPerl installer
13:40 willthechill then let me know
13:40 willthechill I will be happy to help
13:40 binOp ok... xubuntu
13:41 binOp i have linux lite for 5 years, maybe it's time for change
13:44 willthechill well with so many containers and virtual machines and whatnot today, you usually don't have to perform a full re-install, but hey you do whatever you like
13:44 willthechill I only use Xubuntu v16.04.1 on my own computers
13:45 willthechill according to wikipedia, Linux Lite is based on Debian and Ubuntu, so that is good
13:46 willthechill also from wikipedia, Linux Lite is primarily meant to be used by Windows users, not so good
13:46 willthechill so in theory you might be able to use the RPerl installer script with Linux Lite
13:46 willthechill but it sounds like any real Linux programmer would not use such an operating system to begin with
13:47 willthechill so again, either way it is up to you
13:47 willthechill now I must get going
13:47 willthechill come visit us here on IRC, if I am awake and available then I will always answer
13:50 binOp ok great! sounds good
13:53 binOp i'll just set up a VM then, I'll start to dive in RPerl
13:53 binOp thanks for the help though
13:56 willthechill sure a VM is fine
13:57 willthechill you're welcome
13:57 willthechill talk to you later, and good luck!  :-)
