Trying Mepis

Posted 05-08-2009 at 04:52 AM by uinseann

Well, I got hold of the DVD from Linux Format Magazine yesterday. I decided; out of interest and after making a disk image of my system (on my Toshiba Equium laptop which is nothing special but works fine) using "ping" to install PCLinuxOS. The DVD comes up with a menu to boot PCLinuxOS live CD, Mepis live CD, well actually a few different ways of running Mepis, a standard way and one that let you run Mepis by letting it use all your ram if you have 1GB and over.
