Making a bootable Live-DVD under Ubuntu

Posted 11-19-2013 at 07:49 PM by flshope

A recent article from ExtremeTech at the following link

http://www.extremetech.com/computing...ually-live-for

got me to worrying what I would do if my main boot disk failed. I keep my data files on a second hard disk, which I back up to an external drive on a weekly basis. I don't back up much of the boot disk.

Certainly something I should have is an alternate method of booting the machine. Although I know there are several...

How does the US fix it's nonfunctional Congress?

Posted 10-02-2013 at 07:08 PM by flshope

While this issue is not typical LQ material, we LQ users do represent an international set of geeks and nerds, perhaps with some intelligence advantage, but certainly with some capability for independent thinking. How do we fix the US Congress?

- term limits?
- more restrictive educational requirements?
- math-based law restricting gerrymandering?
- random selection of members every decade or two?
- incorporate some characteristics of a parliamentary system?...

Installation problem with Opera on HP-2133 running Ubuntu 12.04

Posted 05-24-2013 at 11:04 PM by flshope

I recently installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my HP 2133 Mini-note PC, a small laptop. Gradually I have been installing the applications software that I use on my desktops. Today, I installed the Opera browser, but with considerable difficulty. As of this date, the current stable version of Opera is 12.15. Opera is not an application that Ubuntu offers from its repository; so installation is not just a matter of running the Software Center (SC) and clicking on an install button, since Opera does not appear...

Computers do not produce high-fidelity music, do they?

Posted 04-25-2013 at 09:27 PM by flshope

Since my early 20s (40 years ago), I have been interested in high-fidelity equipment for music reproduction. To me, "high-fidelity equipment" means powerful amplifiers (100s of watts rms per channel), heavy big-box wooden speakers (several cubic feet each) capable of reproducing 30 hz to around 20 Khz with a flat frequency response and a bunch of other acoustic characteristics, and high quality devices to play music media. I am not into high-end equipment, where each component costs O($10^5)...

HP 2133 Mini-note PC crunching along just fine with Ubuntu

Posted 03-29-2013 at 04:42 PM by flshope

After about a month since I installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (overwriting SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10) on my HP 2133 Mini-note PC, I can report that the machine has not crashed once with Ubuntu. Under SUSE, it crashed several times during on a session. If you have one of these machines with SUSE (a vendor installation) and yours crashes repeatedly, I recommend you consider installing Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. The process is a standard installation from an external DVD drive (I have an LG GP40, which is plug...
