If, like me, you have a lot of data and a suitable conventional hard drive (HDD), then I recommend that you just buy the smallest, good-quality SSD you can find.

30GB or 60GB is more than enough to accommodate a Linux distro.

6 SSDs to consider:

NB Do bear in mind that cheaper, smaller capacity versions of the these drives are available in addition...

siduction tips for beginners!

From its outward appearance, siduction may appear to be just another Debian-based Linux distribution, but don't let that fool you. Here be dragons!

I have put together a few short, but essential, tips for newcomers wishing to install and use siduction which is a full rolling Linux release based on Debian Unstable (sid).

Tip #1:
As an absolute minimum, it is essential to read the siduction Quick Start Guide before even thinking about proceeding further.

Android KitKat 4.4.4 x86 Exton build for laptops

Posted 03-02-2015 at 03:01 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)
Updated 03-20-2015 at 04:33 PM by exton (Added info)

I have compiled an Android x86 system (KitKat 4.4.4), which can run live (from CD) or be installed on almost all laptops (and some Desktop computers). For example Acer, HP, Samsung, Dell, Toshiba, Lenovo, Thinkpad, Fujitsu, Panasonic and Ausus laptops. The Android system is distributed in the form of an ISO file as the rest of my Linux distributions. I.e. you must (as usual) burn the ISO file to a CD if you want to run the system live on your computer or install it to hard drive. Read about how...

Installing the Graphical Window System ( and the Default Desktop Environment on CentOS 6

Installing the Graphical Window System ( and the Default Desktop Environment on CentOS 6

Performing the default "Minimal" install of CentOS 6 does not install the graphical subsystem (the server) and the desktop environment (e.g. GNOME or KDE). Such OS install is nice for building an optimal system from scratch, setting up a headless server (no monitor, keyboard and mouse) and other purposes; but for one reason or another, you may still require a graphical...

Tags hdd, install, mepis, mint

New PC:-
Blank HDD - the shop actually used FreeDos to test the HDD
& gave a leaflet on how to Erase that & install W7.

But- that didn't happen

so into the DvD drive went a Puppy4 cd & thus create four new partitions & erase the FreeDos

and then:- the Mepis11 onto sda3 & /home on sda6
followed by Mint10 onto sda1 & /home onto sda6
with sda4 in reserve, for future use.

works well ...
