Linux From Scratch Rebuildathon: 64-bit edition Part 2

Posted 07-31-2009 at 09:13 AM by Seph64 (Seph64's Lair)

After the last attempt at installation failed (it had something to do with misplaced headers due to package management failing to pack glibc correctly), I decided to try again. Using the 64-bit LFS CD/Instruction manual to build the toolchain, Gentoo X64_86 to build the base system.

Package Management: It's all in my head. Not a very effective way of managing what gets installed, but it is my preferred method of installing LFS.

And I've backed up the toolchain (before...

2 Operating Systems, 1 user folder.

Posted 07-16-2009 at 12:36 PM by Seph64 (Seph64's Lair)

I normally have 2 User Folders. 1 for Windows and 1 for Linux.

Usually this is because I have a nicely sized partition for Linux (50GB - 100GB on a 200GB drive for instance). But due to circumstances earlier mentioned in my previous blogs, and partly to do with my laziness, and also due to my inquisitive nature, I've decided to give my Linux partition a small piece of the pie on this drive. About 18 GB, quite inadequate for the kinds of files I download have the user folder to be...

Reinstalling Linux due to a slip up Part 2.

Posted 07-02-2009 at 03:53 PM by Seph64 (Seph64's Lair)

It's been months since my last posting. But I finally got around to reinstalling Linux.

I went ahead and reformatted the windows partition to lower it's max capacity by 18GB (for Linux).

The home dir is binded to the Windows partition, specifically, the Users folder. So the Linux user home directory is shared with the Windows User directory. So there's no need to back up both places, since they are shared. This is accomplished by NTFS-3G.

18GB should...

Reinstalling Linux due to a slip up with the W7 RC installer.

Yeah, I am testing out Windows 7, because I enjoy testing new things out.

One of the irks was that I had delete all the partitions I had in order to install this spoiled child. Creating a partition in free space of 100GB of a 200GB drive (50GB was used for Linux, and another for another installation of Windows) would yield nothing but errors.

Deleting of the other Windows partition would allow me to create a partition of that space. But to create a partition in the...

I personally can't wait for Google Chrome to get a Linux version.

Posted 03-31-2009 at 11:29 PM by Seph64 (Seph64's Lair)

Because I don't like Opera (something about it just feels weird to me), and Firefox 3 has some features I really do not like.

For instance, in the url bar, it now has the tendency to search through the titles of pages you visited instead of the url you are trying to type. If I wanted to search through titles, I would use the frickin' history list. I WANT THE BROWSER TO SEARCH BY URL NOT BY TITLE WHEN I TYPING STUFF IN THE URL BAR!

Excuse my screaming.
