The Linux Crusade

Posted 10-15-2015 at 10:00 PM by Randicus Draco Albus

It is encouraging that the Linux religion is thriving. The contingent of missionaries embarking on the crusade to convert the computer heathens to the one true operating system continues to grow at a healthy rate.
(In case there is any doubt, yes, that is sarcasm.)

From what I see on various fora, it seems that the mentality of the Cult of Ubuntu is spreading vigorously throughout the rest of Linuxdom. Missionary zeal used to be restricted to the fantasy of a world dominated by...

How I got my microphone to work in Arch Linux and How you can save time and frustration

I am writing this to help any poor soul who like me has spent hours trying to get his microphone to work. I am an Arch Linux user and Arch has excellent support. For instance the following website offers all kinds of help to get sound and recording to work: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php...roubleshooting

Another website that I found quite helpful is: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1703092

What to do when one of your installations goes missing on a multi-boot BIOS system

Posted 10-14-2015 at 01:06 PM by donatom
Updated 10-14-2015 at 01:26 PM by donatom

I have several multiboot systems (Arch, Fedora, Mint, Ubuntu, etc.). On each I have chosen to make Fedora the "master" distro; that is the distro that controls grub. On occasion, after a system upgrade when Fedora updates the kernel, I "lose" one of my installations -- usually Arch Linux. What I mean by "lose" is that the distro is still on the grub menu but when chosen, booting fails.
