PCLinuxOS 2008 ‘MiniMe’

Filed under
PCLOS

fareast.linuxdiary: Is a minimal version of PCLinuxOS that comes with just the bare bones, allowing you to install exactly what you need; the liveCD is a very fast boot, and true to its Mandriva roots is extremely easy to configure through the Control Centre.

Consumer Darwinism and the Rise of FOSS

Filed under
OSS

Linux Today: One of the recurring themes that keeps popping up in the Linux community is this pressing need to get Linux on the desktop. I have often pondered in the past that such a goal is indeed worthy--once we actually figure out just exactly what "desktop" means.

Review: Mandriva 2008 Flash

Filed under
MDV

reddevil62-techhead.blogspot: I've probably tried every one of the top 20 distros in the Distrowatch rankings – and a good few outside it - and I have to admit that few have impressed or surprised me as much as Mandriva 2008 Flash.

My Favorite Linux Tool

Filed under
Software

certcities.com: While I rarely get excited over free applications, the KDE news-feed reader Akregator is proving to be an exception to the rule. This simple tool has made my life so much better that it's difficult to talk about it without sounding like a late-night infomercial for OxiClean.

PCLOS

ruminations: Two tasks remained under the heading Sharing: settting up file/printserver and setting up a share. The first task ran into a snag quickly with an error message that the name ‘localhost’ wasn’t correct for a DNS server. Setting up a Samba share wasn’t error free as well.

Daniel Robbins Offers to Return to Gentoo, Renew Charter

Filed under
Gentoo

Daniel Robbins: Several days ago, the Gentoo community discovered the unfortunate news that the Gentoo Foundation's charter has been revoked for several weeks. I have received permission from my employer to return and serve as President of the Gentoo Foundation, renew its charter, and then work in some capacity to help to get Gentoo going in the right direction from a legal, community and technical perspective.

Review: TinyFlux 1.0

Filed under
Linux

raiden's realm: TinyFlux (aka PcFluxboxOS) is a remastering of PcLinuxOS done in much the same way as TinyMe, but with Fluxbox as the window manager instead of KDE. It's the new kid on the block in an ever increasingly crowded world of Linux distributions.

Find the items you want with GNOME Do

Filed under
Software

linux.com: Blacktree software's free Quicksilver Mac OS X utility won over users by letting them start typing the name of the file or app they need, and popping up the best matches in a launcher. Quicksilver went open source recently, but you don't have to wait for a port to start using it on your Linux machines. Two clones already exist: Katapult for KDE and the newest competitor, GNOME Do.

That OpenSUSE Tablet So Far Is A Dud

Manjaro 17.0.1 Gellivara (Che Guevara) - Pretty decent

It is time to arch our backs and explore the distroverse some more. That's a horrible pun, I admit, so I'll chase to the cut. Manjaro. It's a nerdy operating system, powered by sacrificial goats, curdled blood, enthusiasm, and heaploads of nerdiness. But then, over the years, it has slowly grown on me, becoming almost usable on a daily basis. A new version is out, carrying the numerical identifier 17.0.1, and there are several desktop flavors available. In order to test the progress and change in Manjaro, I decided to continue with the Xfce version, and so we can compare to previous editions. Now, the system has a rolling update nature, so I could have just upgraded the installed instance on my Lenovo G50 box, but I decided to go for a full, fresh experience. We commence. Read more
