Me and Debian

Posted 08-21-2013 at 10:42 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.

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....

Ch...ch...ch...changes!

Posted 04-14-2012 at 04:04 PM by brianL

Over the past few months, I've made a few changes to my desktop hardware. Transplants really, though I might have been better off building a new computer from scratch. Boosted the RAM from 4 GB to 8 GB, more scope for virtualisation. Then a new graphics card to replace the integrated graphics. This is where I slipped up a bit. I got a NVidia 560Ti, but found it was too long, the drive cage got in the way. But since I can't recall seeing the physical dimensions of it anywhere, only the tech. specs,...

Thought it was about time I had another go at trying to restore my Sheevaplug to its original state, but with the same results as last time. Included a screenshot this time.
