2 Operating Systems, 1 user folder.

I normally have 2 User Folders. 1 for Windows and 1 for Linux.

Usually this is because I have a nicely sized partition for Linux (50GB - 100GB on a 200GB drive for instance). But due to circumstances earlier mentioned in my previous blogs, and partly to do with my laziness, and also due to my inquisitive nature, I've decided to give my Linux partition a small piece of the pie on this drive. About 18 GB, quite inadequate for the kinds of files I download have the user folder to be...

Reinstalling Linux due to a slip up Part 2.

Posted 07-02-2009 at 03:53 PM by Seph64 (Seph64's Lair)

It's been months since my last posting. But I finally got around to reinstalling Linux.

I went ahead and reformatted the windows partition to lower it's max capacity by 18GB (for Linux).

The home dir is binded to the Windows partition, specifically, the Users folder. So the Linux user home directory is shared with the Windows User directory. So there's no need to back up both places, since they are shared. This is accomplished by NTFS-3G.

I personally can't wait for Google Chrome to get a Linux version.

Because I don't like Opera (something about it just feels weird to me), and Firefox 3 has some features I really do not like.

For instance, in the url bar, it now has the tendency to search through the titles of pages you visited instead of the url you are trying to type. If I wanted to search through titles, I would use the frickin' history list. I WANT THE BROWSER TO SEARCH BY URL NOT BY TITLE WHEN I TYPING STUFF IN THE URL BAR!

Samba issues fixed and all relevant folders are now shared, OpenSSH up and running. Now I am upgrading the OS. This machine has been offline for several months, boy is that a lot of packages.

I just hope the software upgrade goes alright.
