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....

15-year-old desktop kept alive with Debian 9 and Xfce (but not GNOME)

Posted 06-29-2018 at 11:25 AM by flshope

I have a 15-year-old Pogo Linux Altura desktop machine using an AMD Athlon(TM) XP 2400+ 2GHz processor. I call it Pogo2003. The machine has 1 GB of RAM and two 120 GB hard disks. Despite its age, the machine shows no indication of hardware deterioration. So it has become a bit of an obsession and hobby of mine to keep it running with a current operating system. It serves as one of two backups to my primary machine (Pogo2011), which is only seven years old.

Until recently, the machine...

Installing Linux on a new SSD (in a desktop PC with a second hard drive)

Posted 02-08-2016 at 09:31 AM by beachboy2

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!

Posted 05-18-2015 at 06:28 AM by beachboy2

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...
