Posted 06-25-2009 at 01:08 AM by Shingoshi

Ok. So I told you about this project that just drove me nuts. And now I'm having to start all over again. In the process of doing that, I'm having to make some essential decisions. The first item on my agenda is, "what do I intend to do with this new system I'm in the process of building?

I have been wanting to build a system which would allow all the developers of a single distribution to build all of their applications in a single unified environment. That means that every application...

Updated 06-24-2009 at 11:57 PM by Shingoshi

I want to introduce some of you to a system you may not be aware of. The system is called Nix. It has it's own package manager, which in some ways may behave/perform like Gentoo's emerge.

How to Install Tuxonice in Ubuntu

Posted 06-24-2009 at 01:16 AM by sridhar11

TuxOnIce is most easily described as the Linux equivalent of Windows’ hibernate functionality,but better. It saves the contents of memory to disk and powers down. When the computer is started up again, it reloads the contents and the user can continue from where they left off. No documents need to be reloaded or applications reopened and the process is much faster than a normal shutdown and start up.
