LFA (Linux for All) – build 140306

Posted 03-07-2014 at 02:15 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

Version 140306, 13.10, 64 bit, with Mate and four other Desktop Environments
The system is a remaster of Ubuntu 13.10 – codenamed Saucy Salamander, released on October 17, 2013. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Unity 7.1 (Ubuntu). I have added LXDE, Mate 1.6.0, Razor-qt 0.4.1 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...

Starting a new chapter

Posted 03-06-2014 at 07:40 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

The time has come for me to bid farewell to San Antonio. I accepted a position at Amazon's Seattle office so I could get my wife closer to her aging Dad (who we haven't seen since our wedding over a decade ago).

It's a real bittersweet time for me. My team at Rackspace is (and will likely be for a very long time) the coolest group of people I've ever had the pleasure of working with...and on top of that, I had the best customers a Linux tech could ask for. Sure, the occasional...

A new and better version of MeX Linux with Cinnamon 2.0 is ready!

Posted 03-01-2014 at 02:42 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)
Updated 03-01-2014 at 02:43 PM by exton

MeX Linux is based on Linux Mint. (I.e. Linux Mint 16 - codenamed "Petra", released 20131130 and on Ubuntu 13.10 - codenamed "Saucy Salamander", released 20131017).

NEWS 140301
All packages in MeX Linux have been upgraded to the latest version by 140301. Cairo-Dock has been added. The most important change is that I have replaced the install program Ubiquity with MeX Installer. The installation to hard drive is now so simple that a 10 year old child can...

Mint 16 Best 64 bit KDE Desktop for G945/i915

Posted 02-28-2014 at 09:11 AM by rainbowsally
Updated 04-19-2014 at 11:33 AM by rainbowsally (abandon ship!)

Update: I'm reverting to a 32-bit system. I may install some 64-bit libs but trying to get everything working that I need in a 64-bit system is not worth the time.

I'll leave this post in case it's of any help to anyone, but it turns out that THE solution to the graphics speed provblem here may have only worked by chance. Meanwhile, my 64 bit system still has all the graphical effects working, but everything else slowed down and several apps ported from non-mint distros no longer...

Building Arch Linux Package from precompiled Binaries.

Posted 02-28-2014 at 05:03 AM by s.verma
Updated 04-08-2014 at 01:01 AM by s.verma

This article shows how to create an Arch Linux package
1) when you have got pre-compiled binary files available
or
2) have debian/fedora .deb/.rpm packages available and you have extracted them and got usr/, etc/, etc. directories with installable files in them. Hence want to convert deb/rpm packages into Arch Linux packages.

For this you have to create a directory structure let say
~/foobar/src
Also create ~/foobar/PKGBUILD.
