    Compiling a Kernel, general/generic KISS method - am I crazy, am I stupid, am I wrong?

    Hint. You need to have the appropriate C-devel packages and libs installed to do this..

    Configuring and compiling a Kernel "the old way"/KISS way..

    Hint. Many distroes is missing the appropriate c-devel packages, including ncurses (menuconfig) and some devel-libs to be able to do this. You have to work out the quirks for your distro.. Even things like GCC and make..

    Keep us posted on any reviews from individuals who have used a Tuxedo Computer or other notable items you want to bring out.
    There are 3 reviews of a well known testing page called notebookcheck.net of tuxedo computers.
    Newest:

    All seeming to land around 80-85% positive review, but with some negative notes.. Not that I've read it all, the reviews are extensive, but one of the noted issue was the speakers.

    I had exceptional speakers on my last laptop, and it's quite a downgrade on sound to use my current machine, so I find that good speakers can life the overall quality of the machine, without being the most important thing. For me personally, this is more on the lightweightness, battery time and sound the machine makes.

    It looks impressive and professional, and I think it is well worth it for GNU/Linux people to support something like that.

    A word on partitioning and permissions (for newbies)

    Well, if the disk is empty anyways, it does not hurt to try and learn the first time around. You don't break anything by trying as long as you don't touch the EFI boot.

    If you don't succeed the first time and break the boot or something, you can try again. Besides, the post is not meant for ultra newbies, but generally people who don't know these things already. It's generally more dangerous to use auto-partitioning than to fail at manual partitioning.

    The contradiction here is; the utter newbie does not know enough to make the choices needed when partitioning manually. I remember being a newbie and doing it manually and completely trashing everything.

    SystemFree (aka sysf), the systemd replacement

    I do not have the programming knowledge, nor experience, in giving you intellectual or practical input on how to program a replacement for Systemd with a SystemFree init system. But, I see the need for a SystemFree init system of some form to replace Systemd. So, I am behind the concept and will try and keep abreast of the work by you and others. Keep us informed by your blog or through threads here on LQ.

    Sounds like a good idea. Maybe your init will do to systemd what systemd did to sysV: just appear out of nowhere and take over without anyone knowing why. Works for me.
