Debian on NSLU2

Posted 12-04-2010 at 10:54 PM by Caysho

I have a spare NSLU2 (no longer sold) which I had originally intended to use as a backup to one I use as a fileserver (running OpenSlug).
I have been wanting to put a torrent client on it as well.

Ubuntu has an installer, but support has since been removed.

Initial install.
So I go with debian. The device has 32 MB RAM, so the oom killer kills the disk formatter.
Partition the drive separately - I have a 4 GB USB stick:
  • Primary partition 3 GB

Ubuntu Unity Interface

Posted 12-03-2010 at 04:46 PM by sturg_nz

What promised to be a good interface seems to be limited by it's lack of flexibility, I worry that Canonical will not support users wanting to use Gnome3 as their desktop.
Will wait and see how this pans out...

A story aobut FS/OSS in Libya

Posted 12-03-2010 at 04:46 AM by malghwell

FS/OSS activities in Libya is progressing. I embossed in the company I'm working with, as an IT Office Manager, I embossed the Linux as a platform for all IT activities. Also, I tried to embossed the usage of OpenOffice for all employees, even though I didn't succeed fully (only few from other than IT personnel).
During a conference that will be held at Bengazhi (the second city in Libya) Garyounis University, Mr. Richard Stallman will be a Key speaker and he will be in Libya for 9 days....

Why I still have Windows installed

Posted 12-02-2010 at 02:02 AM by Gaidal

* iTunes. I have an iPhone (3GS) and don't know of a way to sync it from Linux. There seems to be support for iPods but not for the iPhones. According to what I've read when googling the issue, iTunes doesn't work satisfactory under Wine either.

* VPN. I decided to live in China for some reason, and until I figure out what to do about that, I'm stuck with restricted (and assumedly monitored) internet. Windows has this app called Freegate which lets me access youtube and get my share...
