Mythbuntu 9.10 (karmic)

Posted 11-06-2009 at 05:24 AM by Caysho
Updated 11-07-2009 at 12:37 AM by Caysho

I have been running mythbuntu for a few days on a Gigabyte EP45T-UD3L motherboard, Hauppauge HVR-2200 and nVidia GeForce 9400 GT, and it performs nicely.

It is housed in a SilverStone HTPC case, which is currently sitting on the floor waiting to be migrated into the TV display "cabinet".

It is controlled by an MS USB MCE remote.

I did get some tearing with VDPAU, but fixed it by disabling the composite extension in xorg.

There...

Phone calls from Microsoft

Posted 11-05-2009 at 03:26 PM by pereb

Pretty funny stuff, in a sad sort of way.

I can't believe that people fall for this. Why would Microsoft call someone to tell them they have a virus? Although, the script they use is somewhat humorous.
"Are you online now?" - followed by "Is your computer running slowly?"

The sad part is that I have a mother in law...

"Slackware Linux assumes you're smart."

Posted 11-05-2009 at 02:56 PM by Lufbery (The Slacker's Blog)

I use Slackware Linux at home, where I play systems administrator for my wife and me -- and eventually our child(ren, after the next one is born in December). I'm going to quote an interview with Alien Bob to explain why I use Slackware:
