A linux blog entry, written on a MacBook Pro

Posted 03-03-2009 at 08:04 AM by glomph

Don't shoot me.
Even though I'd probably be better off.

Were it not for my wonderful friends in Seattle & Hamburg, life would be unbearable.

Back to the topic:
The numerous Apple Fanbois (and -gurlz) in my life finally convinced me to stop spending my free time getting Linux to work on various laptops. I'm on my second MacBook Pro, and my wife & two daughters have Macs as well. I was the final convert, although I use mine as a terminal to administer...

Video Editing in Linux, Part 1

Posted 03-03-2009 at 07:51 AM by arioste

I don't know what you know about video editing in linux, but I have just made the first steps, and I thought I would mention what I have discovered in case it comes up.

We have years of video recorded onto VHS-C tapes on two successive Panasonic camcorders. Once in a lucky moment at the flea market, I got a real steal on some quality video editing equipment from someone who did not know what he had, and I have edited all of it with titles, transitions, etc., onto DVDs for family distribution....

There's so much here, and I've learned so much about fixing any Linux related issues that I have. Maybe I should write some stuff to help... I hope that I can contribute something to make these bits worthwhile.

Installing ATI drivers in OpenSUSE 11.1

Posted 03-02-2009 at 11:37 PM by phoenixrising (Learning Something Everyday about Linux)
Updated 03-02-2009 at 11:43 PM by phoenixrising

I was trying to install/enable drivers for my ATI video card in OpenSUSE:

1. In my case the typical 1-click-installs didn't work

2. The best way (I guess) is to do it the hard way -- download the driver from the ATI site and manually configure/build/install it; This guide worked for me. Note: for openSUSE 11.1, instead of 103 use 111)

3. All the desktop effects are working now and as a welcome side-effect, openoffice.org is not crashing anymore like it...
