Another New Toy to Play With

Posted 01-08-2015 at 05:36 AM by brianL

Well, a refurbished one. Although it looks good enough to be new.
A Lenovo Thinkpad T410. With an i5-520 CPU, 8 GB RAM, and a 320 GB HDD, all for 219. Seems like good value for money to me, considering I paid about 199 for a new eee pc 1001ha a few years ago. The T410 has Windows 7 Professional installed, and the C:\ drive (/dev/sda2) is sandwiched between a system partition and a recovery partition. I resized C:\, tried to install Slackware, but had a problem with lilo. So I tried again...

Internetless

Posted 08-16-2014 at 08:46 AM by brianL

Due to a 'phone line fault, I (and others in this area) have been without internet and landline 'phone for about a week. Shut off from civilisation. Thrown back into the Dark Ages. Anyway, it's fixed now, just before the withdrawal symptoms were getting unbearable.

Me and Debian

Posted 08-21-2013 at 11:42 AM by brianL

Every few months or so, I get the urge to dual-boot with Debian, and I've done it a few times. But I never keep it for long. Why? Can't say for sure, maybe it's something to do with the feeling of being constrained to do things "the Debian Way". Anyway, it's gone again, and I believe I've finally lost all interest in dual-booting and distrohopping (except, possibly, for LFS sometime). I'll stick solely to Slackware. I've never said any other distro was bad, only that they didn't suit me....

Aye, aye, My Pi!

Posted 01-28-2013 at 09:45 AM by brianL

Been having tons of fun with my recently acquired Raspberry Pi, and a few ounces of frustration. So far I've got three distros to play with: Raspbian (based on Debian "Wheezy"), that came ready installed on an SD card; Arch Linux Arm, and SlackwareArm, which I've installed on SD myself. It's a bit particular about SD cards, the Pi. Some work, some don't. That was a source of some of the frustration. Another was because Arch has changed to systemd, which made some online info obsolete....
