A new version of DebEX Barebone 64bit “Jessie” is ready!

Posted 12-20-2013 at 06:23 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

NEWS 131221
The DebEX Barebone ISO is now a ISO-hybrid, which means that it can very easily be transferred to a USB pen drive. You can then even run DebEX Barebone from the USB stick and save all your system changes on the stick. I.e. you will enjoy persistence! Read this INSTRUCTION. NetworkManager has been removed. It doesn’t go together with Wicd when it comes to configuring wireless networks. I’ve added the applications GParted (partition editor), AbiWord, Icedove (Thunderbird) and AlsaPlayer....

The decline of Linux boards.

Posted 12-14-2013 at 11:27 PM by Randicus Draco Albus

It is painfully easy to see. Look at almost any Linux users' forum and the obvious jumps out. Almost no knowledgeable members. This is true of all pan-Linux boards: LinuxQuestions, LinuxForums, LinuxFormat, Linux.org, etc. It is also true of many distro-specific boards.

The Cause
In their drive to attract Windows users, the people who manage most boards have enacted policies of enforced "politeness". "Read the manual and ask questions about the parts you do not...

"AccelMethod sna" seems to fix some issues with intel 82G33/G31

Posted 12-13-2013 at 07:26 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

On Debian testing/wheezy, I was having some video issues (video players, VLC and mplayer, would cease to work every now and then, and I'd need to restart X to get them to work again) with the new intel driver (2.20-something, I guess; the last one to work with no issues was 2.19, if I recall).

A new version of PuppEX (Puppy Linux) is ready!

Posted 12-12-2013 at 02:28 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

PuppEX 14.1 5.6 32bit is a remaster of Puppy Linux Slacko 5.6, released on August 12, 2013. Kernel 3.10.5 is used. PuppEX uses the LXDE Desktop interface. Unlike the original Puppy Slacko 5.6, which uses JVM, Fvwm95 and IceWM as Desktop interface. PCManFM and LXTerminal are more useful ROX-Filer respectively RXV, I think. The ISO file is on the whole 317 MB, which is due to me including LXDE and compiling tools (devx_slacko_5.6.0.sfs). Slacko 5.6 original is of only 165 MB. PuppEX is despite this...
