OK. I'm old. People ask me to tell them about my journey with Linux, but it goes back further than that.

When I was a Senior in High School (1969), living in the Los Angeles area, we first heard about pocket calculators. We laughed. Who would want to pay $250 for something to help you with basic math? Sure, the idea that computing had come that far was exciting.

I went to college, Sterling, Kansas. The school had a mid-frame computer, a new thing for them, and was...

Episode 338 Complete

Posted 06-28-2020 at 11:56 PM by zaivala

We completed another episode of mintCast, the podcast from the Linux Mint community for all users of Linux. We had 5 of the usual cast (out of 7) and a special guest. I messed up my own audio by doing something on my computer during the broadcast but nobody will know it happened; indeed, I had to figure it out for myself. But we have great audio editors and lots of backups. Now the audio will be combined and then split into two shows, one released next Tuesday and the other the following Tuesday....

Not a good day...

Posted 06-22-2020 at 12:33 AM by zaivala

I tried to install Sabayon on my Kudu 3. I couldn't even get it to finish loading the live system. I downloaded a new copy in case that was the issue, but it didn't fix a thing.

It looked like I had succeeded, which is a lot farther than I got on the Kudu, but updating did not work right. I did a lot of updates using Rigo when the terminal stuff didn't work, but...

GPartEd Is Your Friend

Posted 06-17-2020 at 12:02 AM by zaivala

My laptop has now gone from a single partition to 2 to 3 and now 4, featuring Linux Mint 19.3, Pearl OS 9, Bodhi 5.1 and now Manjaro Cinnamon. The last one was just added a couple nights ago. And while I had been keeping things simple on my desktop, I had fun playing with GPartEd tonight, getting rid of an unneeded GRUB partition (the boot is from EFI) and moving things around to where I have 3 partitions and over 8 Gb of Swap, with Linux Mint, Bodhi 5.1, and... Well, I was going to try Manjaro...
