15-year-old desktop kept alive with Debian 9 and Xfce (but not GNOME)

Posted 06-29-2018 at 11:25 AM by flshope

I have a 15-year-old Pogo Linux Altura desktop machine using an AMD Athlon(TM) XP 2400+ 2GHz processor. I call it Pogo2003. The machine has 1 GB of RAM and two 120 GB hard disks. Despite its age, the machine shows no indication of hardware deterioration. So it has become a bit of an obsession and hobby of mine to keep it running with a current operating system. It serves as one of two backups to my primary machine (Pogo2011), which is only seven years old.

Brother HL-2140 B&W Laser Printer under Debian 9 only prints blank pages: a fix

Posted 07-04-2017 at 05:28 PM by flshope

I recently installed Debian 9.0 on my primary machine (Pogo2011). This installation is dual boot with Ubuntu 16.04 and each OS booting from a separate hard disk, each with its own Grub installation. The machine had Debian 8.8 previously. I decided to do the Debian 9 installation as a clean install (rather than as an upgrade) because the 8.8 was a bit messed up (let me not go into that here). The Debian 9 install was done from a netinst CD. It appeared to be a textbook-successful install. The post-install...
