Litrix 6.0 was released a few days ago and as a big gentoo fan, I was very anxious to test this livecd and install. Tuxmachines tested version 3.0 and figured 6.0 would probably be the cat's meow! Despite many pros, I'm afraid the cons overtook our experiences with Litrix this time. Here is our report.

Ubuntu Drapper Drake Installation from Live CD

Filed under
Ubuntu

After booting the Live CD, the desktop contains some shortcuts - one of which is to start the installation. When launching the installation, the first screen is a warning about Dapper being beta. It specifically notes that the installation may involve resizing partitions - something you don’t really want to do with beta software! Since I’ve nothing on these disks to lose.

Yellow Dog Linux Installs Neatly on an iPod

Filed under
OS

The concept's great: what would it be like to have a pocket-size device that I could plug in to just about any Macintosh and by simply rebooting the computer be running a full-blown Linux installation? I had a spare Apple iPod, a first-generation 5GB device and I was assured by the folks at Yellow Dog that I could squeeze YDL into as small as 1GB. So, one afternoon I decided to take the plunge.

Music Collection Sharing With Rhythmbox

Filed under
Software

The traditional way of sharing a collection of audio files across a local network is by sharing the directory that contains them, so that everybody can access these files. This works well, but I guess it’s time to move on to the next level of music sharing through the Digital Audio Access Protocol (DAAP).

Tips and Tricks: Using GRUB with XFS

Filed under
Software

I've installed Breezy quite a few times already, and I know that by default it chooses GRUB as its boot manager. So I was really surprised when I found that LILO, rather than GRUB, wound up on my friend's hard disk. Was I hallucinating? Had I been kidnapped by aliens, and they were now controlling my brain with radio waves? Perhaps, but even after I put on my tinfoil hat, LILO was still there.

The Increasing Importance of Community

Filed under
OSS

Community has always played a central role in the Open Source landscape, and the term 'community' is bandied around almost as much as 'Web 2.0'. Unfortunately, as with 'Web 2.0', the term 'community' has become a vague descriptor for a collection of principles that represent similar things.

Linux vs. Windows Vista vs. Leopard

Filed under
OS

2008 will be a critical year for Apple, Microsoft, and the Linux contingent. If Apple can't significantly expand its presence by then in the PC market it is likely going to be finished with this segment. Its likely path in that case will be to focus more aggressively on the consumer electronics market it currently dominates.
