K. Mandla, archon of the wonderful blog Motho ke motho ka botho suggested, when I inquired for help installing CRUX, that I try installing Arch Linux first & use some of Arch's system-querying stuff to help with the kernel configuration stage of the CRUX installation.

And so, I wiped the partition that was causing me headaches and re-created it, and installed grub via Arch since lilo just didn't seem to be able to handle two Linux installations.

What Drug is in Ubuntu?

Posted 05-04-2009 at 07:23 AM by vectordrake

So, I've tried so many distros that i can't remember them all. I still have 2 spindles of CDs and DVDs with older copies of various ones on them. When I found Ubuntu, I thought of how nice it was to be able to get Debian with a bit extra.

I've tried a lot more distros since I found Ubuntu, but its been the main one and has resided on my hard drive as the king of my computer. In fact, I believe that this computer is running an upgrade from 6.10, which was upgraded to 7.04,which...

Posted 05-04-2009 at 12:13 AM by SrDorothy

I've been running Mepis 6.5 on a couple of computers that are 'in-between'--not the slowest but also not the fastest. And generally it has been a good choice. Once I figured out that I had to unmark the non-free flash plugin when I did updates, the multimedia worked fine.

Ramblings

Posted 05-03-2009 at 05:06 AM by brianL

So, according to Microsoft, Windows 7 will require 15 GB disk space. I thought it was going to be slimmed down compared to Vista? Looks like the diet pills aren't working. When you consider that a full install of Slackware 12.2 takes around 4.8 GB, and has loads of varied software included, it makes you think, huh? I mean, Notepad and the few other odd'n'sods of basic software you get with a default Windows install can't take up a lot of space. I had no interest in using Vista, and the same applies...
