Update to Mini 9 Odyssy

Posted 12-30-2008 at 10:29 AM by PresGas (President Gas is President Gas again.)

Well, after a pleasant holiday and a car accident on X-mass night, I am recovered enough to post a continuation of my Mini 9 observations.

Thanks to the helpful commentary of Hangdog42, I discerned that the wireless drivers that I mentioned were the same. I still completely freeze in our university environment which is 802.11g wpa2-enterprise, but am fine on my wep 802.11b router. I had one complete freeze on another test wpa2-personal 802.11g router, but I was not able to reproduce...

Educating myself 1

Posted 12-30-2008 at 04:27 AM by moonbeam5

Started reading my book from the beginning again. Got through the preface.

Started chapter 1. Reading through the GNU-LINUX CONNECTION. There was mention of the GNU Hurd. Went to the web pages mentioned. Skimmed over some of the info.
This from about 3:40 am to about now.

I will leave for work in an hour. Now I will play.

AntiX M8.0 Public Test 1 is now available

SimplyMEPIS 8.0 now has a Release Candidate!

Posted 12-29-2008 at 12:48 PM by masinick

SimplyMEPIS 8.0 Release Candidate 1 was quietly made available a few days before Christmas, then publicized a few days later. This software is based on Debian Lenny software, which is also in Release Candidate status. Both Debian and MEPIS represent some of the most solid, stable software that you can get on any system at any price.

I recommend this software, released or not, for anyone who wants a solid, pleasant, efficient, usable desktop system.

sidux 2008-04 has been released

Posted 12-29-2008 at 12:45 PM by masinick

Just before Christmas the sidux 2008-04 collection of CDs and DVDs was released; the Preview 1 test had been released just about a week beforehand.

sidux is a cutting edge desktop oriented system that features the Debian Sid software, containing only DFSG (Debian Free Software Guidelines) approved software on the official media, but firmware and other non-free software is well explained in their documentation, and optional tools are made readily available for those who choose to extend...
