Review: antiX M8.2 'Thasunke Witko'

Filed under
Linux

antiX is billed as a fast, lightweight Linux distro which is ideal for use on older hardware. It includes two window managers - IceWM (the default) and the excellent Fluxbox - plus the facility for using an iconified desktop through the Rox-Filer application.

Now, I would like to start with a warning: When you first run the live CD of antiX 8.2, make sure that, once the boot screen has loaded, you quickly hit the F2 key to select your language, then the F3 key to select the correct resolution for your display.

If you do not do this, then go on to install antiX to your hard drive, you will be stuck with the default 1024x768 desktop, and will be faced with some fiddling to correct your oversight.

Once you have set that resolution via F3, it will 'carry over' to your installed system.

Eclipse Luna for Fedora 20

If you are a Fedora Eclipse user, then you're probably saddened since the release of Eclipse Luna (4.4) because you are still using Eclipse Kepler (4.3) on Fedora 20. Well, be saddened no longer because Eclipse Luna is now available for Fedora 20 as a software collection! A software collection is simply a set of RPMs whose contents are isolated from the rest of your system such that they do not modify, overwrite or otherwise conflict with anything in the main Fedora repositories. This allows you install multiple versions of a software stack side-by-side, without them interfering with one another. More can be read about this mechanism on the software collections website. The Eclipse Luna software collection lives in a separate yum repository, which must be configured by clicking on this link to install the release package. Read more
