Upgrading the Kernel in Vectorlinux

Posted 06-28-2012 at 03:40 PM by stretchedthin

Vectorlinux uses gslapt for software installation (and yes it does dependency checking :-)), but Vectorlinux does not use the package manager for handling kernel upgrades.
Kernel upgrades are made available on a regular basis in the form of txz packages that are manually installed.
What the video to get a clear idea of the steps involved and maybe come away with an understanding that this is not as difficult as you may assume.

Watch the video here.

Introductory Review Fotoxx photo management.

Posted 06-08-2012 at 12:37 AM by stretchedthin

The recent release of Fotoxx 12.05, had me take a look at this for Linux only photo management suite. After having played with it for a number of days, I think you should take a look at it too. You should also have a look at the video's the author kornelix has put up on Youtube for this application as well. Some real highlights for me are the Panorama and HDR stuff.

Sneek pick at Vectorlinux 7.0 Soho. The KDE flavour of VL sporting KDE 4.8.3. Admitedly, this is more like a 3 minute and 44 second commercial.

xfce4 version 4.10 preview before final release.

Posted 04-21-2012 at 09:09 PM by stretchedthin

I built xfce4 version 4.10pre2 from the source provided on the site and thought I'd do my bit to help the upcoming release and give give it some much deserved promotion . Disclaimer, Xfce4 is my desktop environment of choice, as most of you know. I don't like giving up performance for the sake of bells and whistles but thanks to Xfce4 I can have both.
