Starting a new chapter

Posted 03-06-2014 at 08:40 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...

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 10:11 AM by rainbowsally
Updated 04-19-2014 at 12:33 PM 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...

~/foobar/src
Also create ~/foobar/PKGBUILD.

Posted 02-27-2014 at 01:09 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)
Updated 03-01-2014 at 03:51 AM by exton

NEWS 140227
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 doesnít go together with Wicd when it comes to configuring wireless networks. Iíve added the applications GParted (partition editor), AbiWord, Icedove (Thunderbird) and AlsaPlayer....
