Debian Live and multiple (related) architectures

(This is my first attempt at writing some sort of how-to, if anything is unclear, please let me know!)

This was more of an exercise of "can I?" rather than "is it really necessary?".

At work, there are some PCs with Pentium 4 processors (32 bit) and others with Core processors (64 bit). I have Debian Live on a USB stick, and I got to wondering, rather than using the lowest common denominator (i386) if I could create a Live image using both architectures....

linux in old computer: from DSL to LinuxfromScratch through SLAX and ConnochaetOS

Posted 09-19-2013 at 05:10 AM by translator1111 (CLI is your friend)

RIP: bad value: NULL

Posted 09-18-2013 at 08:57 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

Spent a few days debugging what I thought was a bizarre kernel bug on a RHEL 6.3 box. We had crash utilities installed and I'd gotten incredibly comfortable with analyzing kernel crash dumps.

Posted 09-18-2013 at 01:03 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

The system is a remaster of Ubuntu 13.04 - codenamed "Raring Ringtail", released on April 25, 2013. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Unity 7.0 (Ubuntu). I have added LXDE, Mate 1.6, Razor-qt 0.4.1 Cinnamon 1.7.4 and XBMC 12.0 (An award-winning free and open source (GPL) software media player and entertainment hub for digital media) as alternatives, so that everyone on the spot (during live operation) can compare the different six Desktop Environments.
