I am 60 but my heart issues were not caused by cholesterol /diet issues
mine was due to long term stress and high blood pressure ( very stressful job in a factory and a phenomenal number of twits for managers)
gained about 30 pounds since the first heart attack due to limited activity But working it off now.
anyhow back the topic
cent os was decent but i switched to univention corporate server.
registered Linux user number 505431

miracle (mere-ack-ull) :
the aspiration of the indigent, the expectation of the indolent, and the inspiration of the ignorant.

Im so old even dirt was my apprentice!

https://www.univention.de/produkte/ucs/
and that's all is easy installed ... do you know Grammm , it's also well for using in the Family, as example for one of the Apps by side of blog software or other addins for UCS .. but UCS is interesting but is a all in one solution.. and not really my thing..

I think I prefer the good old solid Centos since that is what I use for my server. But then again I dunno enough about the alternative to be sure


Viking, I've just come across this.

a important word is, "RPMFUSION" so, there be all unofficial rpm-packts into what you need,
also the nvidia rpm packages with all what's need !

rpmsystem with dnf and dnfdragora (rpmdrake)
then install NetworkManager-tui and you have a very well network-configurator in ascii like in mandrake (also kann ich nur empfehlen!)
i load up my install skrip's for you and link it here..
https://www.blackysgate.de/files/folder ... all-scrips
may be not really perfect, but so far functional for Fedora 32
and : https://www.server-world.info/en/note?os=Fedora_32

and if you want make a update/upgrade, it's easy "dnf -y upgrade" the -y at dnf can you use for "let's run through(the whole command)"
also well for rpm-packet commands.. do you see in the scripts.


Doesn't even have my wireless driver, and my laptop is just over a year old.

diabetes is a tricky issue to deal with (not so much maintaining but remembering to mention it to any dr's you deal with.
as it can cause a whole host of problems including masking many of the key markers of cardio vascular conditions)
both chemically and neurologically!
My first heart attack was silent because of diabetes. (no pain at all)
and i have to watch my feet carefully for injuries
I don't feel minor skin injuries due to constant tingling in my feet from nephropathy.
but i keep my glucose levels within normal ranges with diet and exercise ( and the medications of course)
I dont need injection insulin yet and hope to be able to stay away from it for a while yet


I am now 61 (yep, already), and am suspecting heart issues and at the least pre-diabetes. My feet literally feel like they have stakes going through them, and of course, my back issues in general, lots of neuropathy and radiculopathy. Also have developed breathing issues. I'm going to get lung x-rays soon as I have the guts. Although I cut way, way back, I never could completely quit smoking. I've tried some 6-7 times. Life has been way too stressful.
Anyway, enough of that. This is a Rocky Linux thread.
