People want their problem solved, not another distro.

Posted 02-17-2017 at 08:57 AM by goumba

I've really been trying hard not to post this. Really, but it gets harder each day.

One trend I've noticed growing on LQ lately.

Newbie posts their problem. "I can't get X working on distro Y."

How to build LibreOffice 3.6.7.2 in Slackware 14.2 (in 2017)

Posted 02-15-2017 at 11:34 AM by Yury_T

This build was done on Slackware64 14.2 with some additional packages installed. Considering the build instruments in Slackware, this should be replicatable on any non-Slackware installation.

Install a Linux system to a USB stick and get perfect persistence!

Linux to USB – Installation methods
Many people like to run/test a Linux system without touching/changing their hard drive. There are a lot of installations programs out there for both Linux and Windows. Most of them doesn’t offer persistence though. Very little is written about the fact that the “ordinary” installation program for installations to hard drive (in some cases) also can be used to install a Linux system to a USB stick. Using such an installation method will of course give you...
