Mixed Bag

Posted 08-17-2011 at 06:14 AM by brianL

SheevaPlug
Tried again and failed. Still getting that mass/mess of letters and symbols after loading the kernel message. Looks like it's reading the kernel rather than loading it. Did find someone with the same problem, but he used Windows to solve it.

Very reluctant to go down that road. I'll try again sometime, when I'm in the right mood.

Desktop computer knackered
Hardware problems. First the DVD...

Brian's new toy

After months of dithering, I acted. Bought a Nokia N900, to use more as a mini-computer rather than a smartphone. Keeping my fingers crossed that I don't **** this up like I've (maybe) done with the SheevaPlug. I'm finding "swiping" takes a bit of getting used to. Might have to upgrade my fingers. Installed Easy Debian successfully.

Future Plans...maybe?

Posted 01-24-2011 at 05:10 AM by brianL

Two awesome, momentous, earth-shattering events are imminent. OK, that's a bit of an exaggeration. The release of Slackware 13.2 (or will it be 14.0?), and Debian "squeeze" becoming stable. This will mean major reorganisation here, on my computers. These are possible options. Out will go XP Pro from my laptop, replaced with "squeeze", giving a dual-boot Slack + Debian. On my desktop, Slackware and Arch. I've recently tried Arch in VirtualBox, and liked it. And I might keep Ubuntu...
