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. I can also say that I'm intimately familiar with a few features of the Linux kernel that I didn't even know existed before.

If you know much about kernel debugging, you probably already know the fix (due to the subject line). See, when you analyze a kernel crash dump, you get certain information,...

LFA (Linux For All) 13.04 64bit with Mate and five other Desktop Environments

Posted 09-18-2013 at 02:03 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).

Got X11 working.

Posted 09-17-2013 at 10:07 PM by ReaperX7

Finished the main chapter of X-Windows for BLFS today and fired up the twm (tiling window manager) that is more or less a very basic desktop environment with a few X-Terminals (xterm) open, and got a few more packages built.

I'm now working on the X Forms Common Environment (Xfce) UI to give me a basic desktop environment to work from and after that I'll be looking into the Xfce applications as well.
