Sunday 9th June - 21013

Spending so much time away from home (booo) means I have to get smarter and remoting into things with SSH & VNC, rather than rip off others work I will just post a link to a rather comprehensive information source:

https://wiki.edubuntu.org/Lubuntu/RemoteDesktop

...... when I have completed all of the above I will report back on how it went :-)

Just found out that Fuduntu is no more ... Jupiter is not being developed ... these things sadden me, Fuduntu was a great OS and it inspired me to spin Lubuntu to look like it for reasons I have done to death and Jupiter has been my number one package on numerous EEE PC 901's ... Fewt what is going on?

Lubuntu 12.04

Updated 10-16-2013 at 05:34 AM by markyd

In my never ending quest for the distro that does everything, is easy to use and uses zero resources (going to be a long quest) one distro always comes back time and time again, Lubuntu.

Been giving Lubuntu 12.04 a spin on my media PC (ASUS AT3IONT based) and a Dell D600 both installed ok, main gripe was the need to add "smbfs" so I could access my music and movies on my XP based media server ... and the reason for that is the need to mount these drives in /etc/fstab as...

Fuduntu - Dell D600

Posted 04-02-2012 at 04:33 AM by markyd
Updated 10-16-2013 at 05:37 AM by markyd

After a mostly favourable installation within VMware it was time to take Fuduntu 2012.1 for a spin on my Linux Donkey Test machine, an old Dell 1.8Ghz, D600, 2GB RAM and a PATA SSD, yes you read that right took a lot of hunting to find that baby!

The intall was smooth, no issues and up and surfing within 10-15 minutes, the "updates" took forever and the "porgress/how long do I have to wait indicator" did not leave me very well informed, minor gripe but still, as...
