This blog is to document my progress with Linux and programming in general. I started off trying to fix my computer which led me down a road of great intrigue into Linux and programming. From this, I also developed a passion to document what I do for two reason; first is to have a history of what I have done and second is leave the possibility open for feedback and suggestions or even simple discussion. Feel free to email me schulidr@protonmail.com or send me a message on here. I can also be found on twitter, mastadon, manjaro forums, arch forums, and IRC all of which I have the same handle.

distros

Posted 03-02-2019 at 07:39 AM by schulidr (An open source user evolution)

Oh man, it's been a few days but I've done some things. Installed Void Linux a couple of days ago onto the old laptop and I've got it up and running for the time being. Had some issues but they were minor. Took me a while to figure out how to set my repositories properly which then allowed me to install the proper software to get my audio working. I have sound now but no keys mapped for adjusting it so I will have to work on that.

I recently started a bash programming intro with...

customizing

Posted 03-02-2019 at 07:37 AM by schulidr (An open source user evolution)

I feel like I need to catch up on some things. The last couple of days have been pretty good as far as progress in getting my computer set up exactly how I want it. I know I have probably said this several times, my wife tells me I do this all the time, but I keep finding just one more little thing that I want to do that will make things easier or more convenient, or just cool. So for now, I have my profile(s) all setup and configured to exactly how I would like them. I am not going to use a...

Getting fancy with installs

Posted 03-02-2019 at 07:36 AM by schulidr (An open source user evolution)

I feel pretty good about where things have come in the past few days. I have resolved to setting a couple attainable goals before I continue on in any more of an aggressive manner. I have to remember that I start school in the fall which I am sure will be a time hog, but at the same time, could possibly give me my fill for learning. I guess we shall see. Onto what's been going on lately!

My focus for now has to be on continued reading and understanding the book “Code” I am reading....

Overconfidence is a killer

Posted 03-02-2019 at 07:28 AM by schulidr (An open source user evolution)

It's been nearly 2 weeks since I last wrote on here. There hasn't been much excitement until recently. I had the rare and exciting opportunity to head back to my parent's house which of course brought on questions of how to improve computer and cell phone performance. This was all well and good until I got the grand idea to set my parents up with a Linux distro. To make a long story short, I completely messed up their computer. Based on various discussions I had, a combination of a mistake...

Clarification

Posted 03-02-2019 at 06:47 AM by schulidr (An open source user evolution)

I feel like I need to clarify a few things so I don't start coming across as some snooty open-source, anti-windows kinda-guy. Don't get me wrong, from now on I will probably always suggest Linux and open source to anyone who comes to me with a computer question, but I still recognize that Windows and Apple and any other proprietary type of Operating System is useful in many cases. I can't speak for the reliability of the Apple products, hardware or software, because it's always been a little out...
