Sabayon Linux

Filed under
Linux

The other day I met Gentoo, I tried to install it, and finally did it after four tries, and the one using the minimal installation did not work. I finally manage to install using the Live CD but only using the Networkless option one on VMWare and one in another partition of my disk.

Well this introduction about Gentoo is to talk about Sabayon I decided to try it as I have read it is like Gentoo but easier to install, I also wanted to try its OOTB (Out of the box functionality).

Sabayon is an Italian Linux that is user oriented, and it is based on Gentoo.
Ok the first thing you will see when start installing Sabayon is Anaconda, as I am a fan of Fedora, this was great for me, as Anaconda is a great installer.

It asks you all the needed info to start installing the system, its disk partitioning tool as most Fedora users may know is really easy to use, you also have flexibility to install Grub, (I needed it to install it on a Multiple Linux boot schema).

Beer and open source with Untappd

Greg Avola loves beer and coding. He loves beer so much that he made an app, Untappd, where users track their favorite brews. He loves coding so much that he wrote a book about mobile web development. According to him, if it weren't for open source software, his app—and the projects of many other developers—simply wouldn't exist. Read more in my interview with Greg about his open source journey, his favorite beer, and why check-in apps are still relevant. Read more

What is Docker, Really? Founder Solomon Hykes Explains

Docker has quickly become one of the most popular open source projects in cloud computing. With millions of Docker Engine downloads, hundreds of meetup groups in 40 countries and dozens upon dozens of companies announcing Docker integration, it's no wonder the less-than-two-year-old project ranked No. 2 overall behind OpenStack in Linux.com and The New Stack's top open cloud project survey. This meteoric rise is still puzzling, and somewhat problematic, however, for Docker, which is “just trying to keep up” with all of the attention and contributions it's receiving, said founder Solomon Hykes in his keynote at LinuxCon and CloudOpen on Thursday. Most people today who are aware of Docker don't necessarily understand how it works or even why it exists, he said, because they haven't actually used it. “Docker is very popular, it became popular very fast, and we're not really sure why,” Hykes said. “My personal theory … is that it was in the right place at the right time for a trend that's much bigger than Docker, and that is very important for all of us, that has to do with how applications are built.” Read more

Another great experience in Fedora bug reporting: Wine font fix solves my web-browsing problem

Fedora‘s motto is “Freedom. Friends. Features. First.” I’m here to tell you Fedora lives up to that billing. Why do I say this now? I’ve just had another positive experience with Fedora, this time in finding a bug in my system, adding my information to an existing bug report and now seeing updated packages pushed to the Fedora 20 stable repositories and onto my system, where the problem has been fixed.
