Hardware Review: Lini Desktop

Filed under
Hardware
Reviews

I occasionally read that one of the major PC vendors, such as Dell or HP, is coming out with some sort of Linux box. My bias is slightly different. I note the vendors such as SW Technology Los Alamos Computers, Open Sense Computing and many others who have thrown in their lot with Linux and subscribe to some sort of open-source philosophy. These are the sorts of vendors from whom I prefer to buy. I would be sorry to see the giants in the industry overwhelm these little guys, who are much more likely to share my Linux enthusiasm.

In fact, over the years I have ordered product from each of the three vendors mentioned above and was quite satisfied. This particular review concerns the relatively new Lini computer from Open Sense Solutions. My purchase occurred early enough that my system was considered something of a beta unit. The vendor was not informed that I would write a review, so product configuration and customer support were not skewed.

Full Review.

Fixing unperceived errors in my X Windows configuration

Last week I decided to bite the bullet and upgrade X Windows to the latest version available in the main Portage tree. After rebooting, X Windows, GLX and Direct Rendering worked fine as usual. So everything was good. Well, not quite. Although the installation was working properly, there were still some long-standing messages in the X.Org log file that indicated my installation was not configured completely correctly. I had ignored them for too long and resolved to find their causes and eliminate them. Here is what I did.
