Drupal Upgrade

Filed under
Site News

Well, we have the site updated to 4.6.6. It was rough, but we are just about there. I was planning to upgrade to 4.7.x as soon as the modules and bug fixes caught up a little better, but as rough as upgrading Drupal is, it might be a bit longer. Big Grin

First Time For Everything

Just talk

Just thought I'd throw this out there. I registered to reply to a comment, and since I've got my own blog...

Anyway, you can check here for my adventures in Slax Linux, as well as whatever else I pick up along the way. I've got great plans for some of the old computers I have lying around, and I'll update as I learn things. I've got things to say, but I don't have so much time to say them... Oh well, that's life when you're in spinlock.

Site Maintenance and Downtime

Filed under
Site News

The site was down in the early part of this morning due to maintenance/system software upgrades. It will go down again tonight at approximately the same time and for about the same length of time as I attempt to upgrade the cms.

YaST (Yet another SUSE 10.1 RC2 Trial), Part 2

Filed under
Reviews

Installing Xgl on Suse 10.1 RC2 couldn't be simpler. It does require video acceleration; typically, that means using an nVidia or ATI graphics card with the manufacturer's proprietary drivers installed (see the Xgl page on the Suse wiki for more information).

YaST (Yet another SUSE 10.1 RC2 Trial), Part 1

Reviews

Even though I swore I'd keep Fedora Core around for a while, it only took 3 months before I replaced it with Suse (again). It's all Xgl's fault. The Kororaa Live CD is very cool. Since Xgl was created by a Novell engineer, and there are Xgl binaries for Suse, and since Suse is coming out with a new version, and (fintally!) since Xgl hasn't made it into Debian Sid yet, it made sense to install Suse to use as an Xgl testbed.

To 64 or Not to 64, That Was the Question

Filed under
Reviews

With my nice new motherboard & cpu, I've been quite anxious to test some of my new-found powers. My first thought after the hardware installation was: Gentoo 64-bit! By way of testing, I installed the 64-bit version of SuSE 10.1 rc1 yesterday and had planned on writing this wonderfully informative comparison article of it and the 32-bit version. I was expecting the 64-bit to smoke 32 and had even made preliminary reads into installing the 64-bit version of Gentoo. Since this was my first foray into the world of 64-bit, I expected to be lost and confused. Well, the former may not have come to fruition, but the latter certainly did.

fscking Drupal Man!

I pull in the rss feed from drupal.org, mainly to be sure to get security updates asap. Well this morning they had this as their opening paragraph:

With 4.7 nearing completition, it has been decided that for the next version we should look for another language as PHP is now blocks our growing. As you will read in the newsletter, we have found many very obscure language obstacles. We worked around them, but this can not go on. Also, in the IRC development channel, it was said for a long time that Drupal will be rewritten in Haskell, so that was a primary option.

tuxmachines' new rig

As many of you know, my old AMD 2800+ system popped a vessel approximately two weeks ago and a friend suggested I post a request for donations to help fund the purchase of new equipment. The response was great and we raised over 200 USD in 3 days. I purchased an Asus A8V motherboard, AMD 64 3700+ and 1 gig of Kingston HyperX DDR400 memory for a final pricetag with shipping of $439.

SUSE 10.1 Beta NINE?

OMG, I see a beta 9 directory showing up on mirrors around the world. Does this mean yet another beta instead of a release candidate? What does this mean for the release schedule?

Tuxmachines Hardware Drive

We have recently suffered the loss of our linux review test system. If you'd like to donate towards the purchase of new equipment, please click the Paypal Donation button located in the right hand column of our site. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Post/Node #111111

This is the 111111th node. It's a special number and a milestone for us. Will we have reached the 222222nd by 2030? Time will tell. Maybe Drupal won't even be around by then.

Ubuntu: Didier Roche's Interviews Series and Resurgence of Ubuntu Touch

  • Welcome To The (Ubuntu) Bionic Age: Behind communitheme: interviewing Aaron
    I’m Aaron Papin and I’m from Trinidad and Tobago. I work at an IT consultancy that specializes in open-source solutions for SMBs. I’m a technician, but I also work in designing and deploying websites and even on ads from time to time. It’s pretty freeform and fun. I knew of Linux for years, but I only dove in after a hard drive failure a couple years ago. Because why not at that point? It didn’t take me long to start using it mostly full time (games). Even though I’ve worked on my own themes in the past, I’m still pretty new to the Linux community. Hobby-wise, I really like TV, cooking, video games and keeping fit when I’m not on an “extended break”.
