Some of them are well-known and popular, like XChat, Konversation or Irssi, and others are not so widely used or known, but nevertheless, they deserve mentioning.

How To Move Linux to a New Hard Drive

Filed under
HowTos

penguinpetes.com: It's been a busy week for me. It's been one of those weeks where all the machines in the house gang up on me and demand attention at once. One of the computers ran out of hard drive space. So I had a bigger hard drive with four times the disk space handy, and swapped them. The steps:

Mandriva 2008 - Best Linux for Laptop

Filed under
MDV

blog.earneasypro: I tried all major Distros like Ubuntu, OpenSUSE, Fedora, DreamLinux etc. But most of them didn't detect my wifi card. Few of them did detect my wifi card correctly but still there was no option to Configure or to make my WLAN work so that was useless. I finally tried Mandriva Linux One 2008 Spring.

dannychoo.com: I just wanted to share with you all my life changing experience. I always trusted Microsoft and Microsoft only. For the life of me, I couldn't figure out why people talked of Linux as though it were the best thing since the Tenga devices. Finally, my curiosity was peaked and I purposed in my mind to install a dual boot.

Distro Development: Rescatux and Bodhi

  • Rescatux 0.40 beta 9 released
    Many code in the grub side and in the windows registry side has been rewritten so that these new features could be rewritten. As a consequence it will be easier to maintain Rescapp. Finally the chntpw based options which modify the Windows registry now perform a backup of the Windows registry files in the unlikely case you want to undo some of the changes that Rescapp performs. I guess that in the future there will be a feature to be able to restore such backups from Rescapp itself, but, let’s focus on releasing an stable release. It’s been a while since the last one. UEFI feedback is still welcome. Specially if the Debian installation disks work for you but not the Rescatux ones.
  • Bodhi 4.0.0 Updates and July Donation Totals
    Late last month I posted a first alpha look at Bodhi 4.0.0. Work since then has been coming along slowly due to a few unpredictable issues and my own work schedule outside of Bodhi being hectic over the summer. Bodhi 4.0.0 will be happening, but likely not with a stable release until September. I am traveling again this weekend, but am hoping to get out a full alpha release with 32bit and non-PAE discs next week.
