Another Linux Blog

Posted 08-21-2008 at 06:14 PM by PaladinOfKaos

Since this blog comes with my LQ account, I think I'll use it to blog about my linux experiences.

I recently finished getting Gentoo (more or less) set up on an IBM T40 laptop. I'm using KDE 4.1 on it, and it runs pretty smoothly, given how old the hardware is.

I just updated to GCC 4.3 on that machine, which is exciting for no real good reason. GCC 4.2 isn't even listed as stable yet in Gentoo, but I wanted a more recent version that has better P6 optimization (the...

Fickel mindedness

Posted 08-20-2008 at 08:16 AM by Eredeath

I switched (again) back to Ubuntu. The ease of installing programs and the large repository of programs to install makes the distro just so damn convenient. The only thing I really, really dislike about it is I canít log in as rootÖoh and Xorg (or maybe compiz?) crashes on me more often than I would like (sometimes so bad I have to use skinny elephants). I think once I buy some DVDís Iíll try out Fedora 9.
But on the plus side I really messed up my windows partition. Somehow when installing...

How to convert PDF files to HTML or XML files in openSUSE

Posted 08-19-2008 at 05:31 PM by rbkumaran

Converting a PDF file into an HTML or a XML file has been made easy by a small useful utility called PDFTOHTML. PdftoHTml is a Xpdf based tool which can convert PDF files to HTML or XML format. PDFTOHTML also supports encrypted files and support for images in the PDF file by converting to PNG images files. <a href="http://www.susegeek.com/general/how-to-convert-pdf-files-to-html-or-xml-files-in-opensuse/" alt="PDFTOHTML in openSUSE">Read at SuSEGeek.com</a>

Linux, my main hobby

Posted 08-19-2008 at 12:54 PM by Larry Webb

I started using Suse 10.2 when I was forced into medical retirement. At first it was discouraging, but as I learned the terminology it became easier. Once you learn how to use YaST (package manager) it becomes easy. I do not know if I would be using any linux distro if I had started with any other distro. I currently have seven different distros working on this computer and have made room for twelve more. I have a separate partition for data (250 gig) which is fat 32 and it shares pictures with...
