In a openSUSE linux system we can edit OS selection Screen with animated penguins.


Animated Penguin GRUB splash Screen


Procedure
  1. Create a temporary new directory in your home folder. (You can create it anywhere, but for simplicity, I will say the path as the home folder and the directory name as new).
  2. Now copy the file message from the /boot folder in this directory using the command, ‘cp /boot/message new’.

So I've got all these fancy blog posts planned. But it's also been a busy couple of months, so nothing's really ready yet.

To make my schedule even worse, I kind of sort of got myself a little bit addicted to the writings of this one blogger. Normally I can't frigging stand blogs, including my own. Everyone always asks me what blogs I read, and I reply: "Um... do books count?" Which of course is greeted with blank stares, since nobody seems to read books anymore these days....

The "doh!" recursion

Posted 12-02-2009 at 01:25 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

Linux in a Nutshell review

Posted 12-02-2009 at 09:46 AM by jaymarting (The messy world of technology)

Users of free Unixes won't agree with the title of Linux in a Nutshell. The fact is much of the book is actually focused on GNU or BSD utilities and not specifically Linux. The book begins with just over 100 pages of general user commands. Next you get info on bash and csh/tcsh, on emacs and vi/ex, on sed and gawk, and on gcc, gdb, and the like. A perl quick reference is followed by an overview of system administration commands and a final chapter on ways of booting Linux. Here's the odd part, it's...
