Slackware, Unix, PLASMA and Nethack: A discussion-based retrospective of the 1980s to the 2010s - Pt II

Posted Yesterday at 12:08 PM by Lysander666
Updated Today at 05:05 PM by Lysander666

Earlier this month I conducted a discussion with a close companion and programmer who I will call M. M has been programming since the 1980s and has been using a host of different languages and operating systems since. Going from CP/M and Unix-based systems at work and home in the 1980s to Slackware in the 1990s and the 2000s, this discussion maps out his experiences and opinions on the world of free and proprietary software, parts of which will hopefully be of some interest. He is not, as far as...

Create a bootable USB drive with persistence using Mkusb Ė only for Ubuntu

Posted 10-12-2019 at 11:55 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)
Tags exton, mkusb

OSTechNix has written an excellent article about How to create persistent live USB on Ubuntu.

Iíve tried Mkusb today and it works perfectly well. Unfortunately not on my derivatives of Ubuntu. I.e. all ExTiX versions. Thatís because they are made with Refracta Snapshot. Youíll have to use an Ubuntu original ISO image. I myself used eoan-desktop-amd64.iso (Ubuntu 19.10). As promised I could save all system changes directly on the stick. Persistence!

After a lot of trial and error and reading of wikis and forum posts, I've got three screens running out of two GPUs with full acceleration throughout.

I'm running Arch Linux on a Gigabyte H81M-DS2V motherboard with an Intel Core i7-4790 featuring Intel Xeon E3-1200 v3/4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics.

Plugged in to the PCIe slot is an AMD/ATI RV710 [Radeon HD 4350/4550] graphics card.

I have xf86-video-ati and xf86-video-intel installed....

GNU/Linux hardware part2 - tuxedo computers

Posted 10-11-2019 at 05:08 AM by zeebra
Updated 10-11-2019 at 05:11 AM by zeebra

Not a new thing, but worth mentioning is tuxedocomputers.com, which I have known about for awhile but not really taken any note of. Last time I checked it many years ago, it was relatively small, but re-checking it was a kind of wakeup call. The company is definitely doing their own thing, and have a large range of "self-assembled" and designed systems on offer. Perhaps even the biggest and most varied.

I cannot find much information about the company, beyond being based...
