Migration to Mepis 8.0 Complete

Filed under
Linux

Mepis 8.0 is working out just fine. I finally got VLC to play my media files, although Kaffiene and mplayer still just show a blue screen. And I’m not sure exactly what it took to get VLC to working. I uninstalled all the codecs and media packages, flushed apt-get and reinstalled everything. Then it just worked. I have a feeling it was just a small bug in the system that is still partly there.

At any rate! I am now using Mepis as my fulltime/main desktop on my laptop.

I was also able to move my Gpodder configuration over from Sabayon (gentoo based) with no glitches. And move my Sylpheed configuration files over from Slackware 12 which was running Gnome SlackBuilt, also with no glitches.

rest here
