Install AntiX 8.2 Final on External Flash Drive on Asus EEE 900

Posted 07-31-2009 at 02:29 PM by rokytnji

I made up a how to install tutorial with screenshots on my Google Blog site. Anybody interested in doing what I did can view it at Yet Another Technology Site.

I am just a Knuckle Dragging Tattoed Harley Riding Biker that just happens to prefer using Linux instead of Windows.

So take that into account when reading the article.

Broken IBM 390E Now runs Antix

Posted 07-23-2009 at 11:30 AM by rokytnji

I own a old IBM 390E, 14.1 inch LCD Screen, Pentium 2, 366mhz, 64mb of ram, 3 gig hardrive. It had been collecting Dust in the computer room. It had been dropped by the previous owner on the left Hinge corner breaking the corner of the base to where the Hinge snapped loose and there was no plastic on the base to attach the hinge and screen to.

Back up Your Gnome Desktop and all Settings in Gnome.

Posted 04-06-2009 at 04:53 AM by rokytnji

Neat little tool. Yourgnome allow users to backup all things relative to Gnome on your Linux Machine. Packs everything into a tar.gz into your Home folder. Also includes the tools to extract the tar.gz file so you can restore your Gnome Desktop to a your previous saved state. I've used it and it works. I used the non GUI version when it first came out. Easy to use. Kudos to Abu Yusuf for taking the time to make it. There are 2 versions. A non GUI version that just runs in terminal. And a 2nd edition...

Dual boot install on Compaq 1540 DM

Posted 12-04-2008 at 06:53 PM by rokytnji

Compaq Armada 1540DM running Windows 95 and Linux Puppy 2.15CE
L4Linux has been wanting me to post some kind of article on here and I think I finally came up with a rare one. My Wife picked up a Compaq Armada 1540 DM , Pentium I 144mhz, 64 or so mb ram, and the hardrive is 2gig . Google Compaq for the specs.

Windows 95 is the main 0/S. The laptop has a bootable Floppy and a unbootable cdrom because bios doesn't give cdrom as an option, (even with compaqs firmware upgrades...
