Six year hiatus and Where I am Now

Posted Today at 11:00 AM by stureedy

It seems I've accidentally taken a six year hiatus from blog posts on Linux Questions. That was not my intention. I just have three other blogs and they have taken precedence.

So, now I'm running Slackware64 on all our servers. I retired the last Slackware 12.2 (32-bit) box earlier this year. The date was May 14th, for those keeping track.

Yesterday we retired our last Drupal 6 box and now use WordPress as our CMS. I still have a lot to learn about WordPress, but we're...

CruxEX 3.2 64 bit Linux Live CD/USB is based on CRUX 3.2 (latest version, released 151123), which is all Linux enthusiasts/nerds favorite OS. (CRUX 3.2 is a lightweight Linux distribution for the x86-64 architecture targeted at experienced Linux users). CruxEX 3.2 2016 uses the LXDE Desktop environment. I have replaced the original CRUX kernel with my special kernel 4.3.0-x86_64-cruxex, with support for extra everything.

Kernel etc
Kernel 4.3.0 is the latest available stable kernel...

This feature, exclusive to Ubuntu Server Edition, is available at the time of installation.The LAMP option means you don’t have to install and integrate each of the four separate LAMP components,a process which can take hours and requires someone who is skilled in the installation and configuration of the individual applications. Instead, you get...

No sound in Oracle virtualbox

Posted 11-23-2015 at 07:24 PM by WestCoastSunset

I run oracle virtualbox to run XP for one program for which there is no comparable Linux equivalent. I use to have sound working when I had debian 7 installed. But with debian 8 sound on a prexisting image does not work the virtual device is only recognized as a pci device which means XP's plug and play feature will not work.

The problem? I was using the K desktop and just about everything I have ever seen in linux is usually developed with Gnome in mind. The solution? Install Gnome...

I woke up this mourning to find over 3" snow fall today. Too much too early, just playing a round of golf here last week and it was 60° with slight wind. Now its 30° expecting another 1" or more. Glad I got most of my outside work done earlier this week. Since my move from the farm into town it seems that my to-do list is bigger than anything while on the farm. I had a routine on the farm to get all the chores done so there were not many minor to-do that accumulated....
