How to install libreoffice in Ubuntu using PPA
I'd been happily using Sabayon 5.3 past several months until one unhappy update. So, I went back to my Mepis install. Then I remembered why I had to move on from it. So with Sabayon 5.4, will my KDE desktop return to a usable state?
You may have noticed the lack of updates to the site past few days, and along with my apologies comes the explanation that I've been very ill.

In my last post, i introduced some of us to the world of Linux, the advantages it offers and the status it confers.
Understandably, it is still a Microsoft world, so i wouldn’t expect you to just clean out your Windows operating system and install Linux. If you do that, trust me, you will definitely have issues, truck loads.
Although I've not seen an official announcement yet, Amnesia: The Dark Descent is ready to download - at least for pre-orders.
If any have been wondering why things might seem a bit slow around here lately, it's because I haven't been feeling well. Hopefully things should be getting back to normal in the next coupla days. Thanks for your patience.
The X Window System (www.x.org) was created in 1984 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) by researchers working on a distributed computing project and a campuswide distributed environment, called Project Athena. This system was not the first windowing software to run on a UNIX system, but it was the first to become widely available and accepted. In 1985, MIT released X (version 9) to the public, for use without a license. Three years later, a group of vendors formed the X Consortium to support the continued development of X, under the leadership of MIT. By 1998, the X Consortium had become part of the Open Group. In 2001, the Open Group released X version 11, release 6.6 (X11R6.6).

In line with its newbie-friendly tradition of providing a way to do everything via a graphical user interface, Ubuntu provides a way to do a distribution upgrade by clicking a button at the top of the Update Manager. Since version 10.04 was released on April 29, it was once again time to see how well the upgrade went. Here are screenshots of the entire process.

Last month, the Debian Live Project released live CD and DVD images of the next version of Debian, codenamed "Squeeze." They included an installer that uses the live filesystem rather than packages, so it has the advantages of being fast and allowing you to preview on the live media, what you eventually get on your hard drive. This may not seem like a big deal, since most modern Linux distributions use this installation method, but it's still fairly new for Debian. I downloaded and installed the 64-bit GNOME version.
