Distribution confusion

Posted 03-06-2009 at 08:54 PM by Indymaynard

Recently, I had to make a tough decision. Every Linux user will face this particular decision at least once whether they know it or not. I guess that the hardest part about it was that I didn't know if my choice would be good or bad. Even more frustrating was the fact that I believe that no one should have to face this choice.

For at least four years, Fedora has been my distribution of choice. It began when I tried Red Hat 9 for the first time. Honestly, my first experience was terrible...

svn delete huge tree but leave modified files

Posted 03-06-2009 at 05:31 PM by ciotog

In one of our projects at work, the entire kernel source tree was added to an svn repository. I needed a simple way to delete all the files that were unchanged from the original source, and came up with the following:
Code:
diff -r -s kernel/linux-2.6.12 src/kernel-2.6 | grep identical | perl -e 'while (<>) { ($Files, $fname) = split ; `svn del $fname` };'
Confession: yes, I was the one that added the kernel source

A rant of Desktop Environments + latest Desktop shot.

Posted 03-06-2009 at 12:12 PM by Seph64 (Seph64's Lair)

Back when I started using Linux, I was using Madrake 8.2 as my distro (back in 2001, maybe 2002). The default DE was KDE. And it looked different from the Windows I was used to, but that didn't scare me.

Throughout my Linux adventure, I kept switching between Desktop Environments, KDE and GNOME. At the time, I did not like the Gnome environment very much, so I would always go back to KDE (I made a joke to myself that no matter what would happen, I would always end up with KDE as...

Changes

Posted 03-06-2009 at 11:28 AM by brianL

The sharp-eyed amongst you will have noticed that Slackware has disappeared from my desktop. Don't panic! I haven't abandoned my favourite distro. I'm planning on getting a new box: one with more WUMPH!, KAPOW!, and ZZZAPPP!! (More HDD capacity, RAM, and a faster/multicore processor, etc). So I'm going back to doing a bit of distrohopping on my present one, because it's about a couple of years since I indulged in that pursuit. There's newer versions of distros I've tried before, and some not yet...

When is a blog a forum subject

Posted 03-06-2009 at 10:45 AM by Patrick-Warwick

Reading the first few blogs on the blog page for the first time I thought, correct me if I am wrong somebody, surely these are forum matters rather than comments about - well anything Linux - or Microsoft - or Mac - or any subject under the sun.

I am not a blogger or reader of blogs apart from those by political reporters and economical analysts etc. However I did read something that might be worthy of comment - or blog.

A couple of days ago the BBC reported on their...
