Saving money the techie way...part 2.

Posted 07-01-2011 at 10:59 AM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

Hevithan commented on my Roku blog post yesterday, so while I was responding I'd realized that in the original post I hadn't even mentioned one of the coolest features we use heavily on our Roku: Roksbox. Here's the "top level view":

Roksbox is a channel for the Roku...just like Hulu, Netflix, Pandora, Amazon Prime, etc... you access it with the same ease and speed as the other channels. (Note: there's a one-time "registration" fee of $15 USD for Roksbox...and...

GNOME 3 (Fedora 15) -- background and other tweaks

OK now! Have upgraded to Fedora 15 and GNOME 3!!!

Well it's not so bad, though definitely different. One good thing I've always been looking for is a clean desktop space -- this has been achieved. A very different look and feel of the desktop has its positive sides, too. Never liked GNOME, but now I feel better about it.

Not to say that there are no problems running GNOME 3 in Fedora 15. I'll share here just solutions to the problems I haven't found yet in Internet....

Upgrade to Natty Narwhal aka Ubuntu 11.04

Posted 06-30-2011 at 07:42 AM by bhupendra

The upgrade to Natty did go smoothly, but Unity
was broken. Had to do a fresh install. Everything
works now. There has been a lot of controversy
regarding Ubuntu's move to Unity. As far as I am concerned,
it does not make much difference whether it is Gnome 3.0 or
Unity, so long as it works. Even KDE is good. Once you get
familiarized however the desktop is organized matters less so long as it is Linux.
I like Ubuntu and will stick with it. For that...

Kernels & version numbers.

Posted 06-30-2011 at 05:07 AM by rich_c

I just managed to find a Liquorix kernel that works for me! My crusty old antiX laptop has gone from a Mepis 2.6.36 kernel to Liquorix 2.6.39 courtesy of the famous smxi script. Usually when I try this, my wireless adaptor stops working or something similar.

On the subject of versions and kernels, personally Linus' move from 2.6.nn to 3.n for the Linux kernel is a good one. To me, the old system wasn't reflective of the changes between versions. On the other hand, Mozilla have...
