feng shui of linux

Posted 04-18-2009 at 07:12 PM by emptyspaceenterprises

Since I am presently unable to help anyone out with true linux type concerns. I humbly present this to

Kidco and spinich pesto: I use this manual_labor_pablum_making_device purchased from kidco to make
a garlic_spinach_sunflowerseed_veg.oil_salt pesto spread to be applied to toasted and buttered home made
bread. I find it to be excellent.

I started to read chapter5 of the LDD. Switched over to trying to communicate between 2 c++ program...

Slammed on Slamd64

Posted 04-18-2009 at 05:12 PM by brianL

Got Slamd64 up and running. Same installation procedure as Slackware, except for all the package names of course. To compare it with 32 bit I'd have to reinstall Slackware 12.2, but like I said before I really don't want to duplicate what I've got on my laptop. I can't compare any laptop v desktop benchmarks because of processor and RAM differences.
LFS uses how long it takes to compile binutils as a unit of time. So I thought I might try that: get the source, and just run ./configure and...

Start With The Easiest

Posted 04-18-2009 at 07:41 AM by brianL

As the title implies, I started trying 64 bit distros with possibly the easiest install as far as hardware recognition goes: Ubuntu 8.04, amd64 version. No problems whatsoever. Ubuntu even managed to install a NVidia driver that doesn't ****-up everything. Yes, I'm quite pleased with the result. I could have tried 8.10, but from what I've read, the LTS versions are a safer bet - less flaky. The next candidate for installation will be slamd64. I'll keep Ubuntu, because sometimes I'm in a pointy-clicky...

Going 64 bit

Posted 04-17-2009 at 10:13 AM by brianL

I was thinking (I do that now and then, even though it makes my brain hurt ). Why don't I install a couple of x86_64 distros on my new desktop? It's got a processor and enough RAM to take any advantage that 64 bit offers (if there is any?). And I've got a few CDs/DVDs, either given away with magazines or burnt by me: slamd64, Debian 5, Ubuntus 8.04 & 8.10, and Fedora 10. So why have I merely duplicated what I've got on my laptop? That, then, is my project for this weekend: to boldly go where...
