Microsoft + Novell + Wal-Mart +Ubuntu + Dell = Conspiracy ?

lockergnome: What triggered my entire thought process on a conspiracy theory is when I read that Dell is going to sell their Dimension series of computers through Wal-Mart and Sams Club. Hold on here!

Penguin Pete: Oh, my God, Linux community! Stop it, just stop it right this minute! This is sickening. Get up, dry that face, and get over here.

Thoughts on Gnome roadmap

Filed under
Software

Fabrice Facorat: I've just have a look at the Gnome roadmap. The roadmap is giving the expected features of future versions of the gnome platform ( 2.20, 2.22, 2.x, 3.0 ). There are some interesting things to note:

Konversation, A simple irc client with a few surprising features.

Software

DPotD: A sense of community remains is a powerful feature of Linux. Few tools reveal the power of open source, and none more clearly link this community better than IRC clients. Dozens of clients exist, from the small and powerful (irssi) to the complex (centericq). I prefer a lightweight gui: Konversation.

blogbeebe: Remember that iconic scene from the start of Poltergeist, with Carol-Anne sitting in front of a T.V. screen full of static and making that announcement in her high, sweet voice? That odd little feeling of dread? You don't know why, but the warning flags are going up in your mind. That's the way I feel with the official arrival of Dell's Ubuntu systems.

How to get the most out of your Intel graphics chip

Filed under
HowTos

the distrogue: It's well known that Intel's i8xx/i9xx/GMA9xx graphics chips, which are used in several types of laptops, don't bring their own on-chip RAM, preferring to pillage it from the system's memory. For most users, 4 megabytes of VRAM is fine, but gamers will clearly want more than that! Here's how to do it:

PCLinuxOS 2007 : Cool Looking Linux Distribution

Filed under
PCLOS
Reviews

linuxondesktop: PCLinuxOS is one of the finest Desktop Linux Distribution i have tried in past few years, it integrates some of the wonderful features of Mandriva Linux and adds a power pack collection of software. I have been a passionate user of Ubuntu and i can safely say if i had to recommend a Linux distro to someone new at computers it wont be Ubuntu but PCLinuxOS.

Ryan Stewart: I spent the past couple of days exploring Ubuntu and since I came away pretty impressed, I wanted to blog my thoughts.

How-to Edit Grub

Filed under
HowTos
-s

So you've just installed your second, or third, or ninth Linux distribution and it either didn't recognize all your installs or you chose to skip that phase of the install. Of course you'd like to be able to boot all of these installs. Editing the grub.conf (or menu.lst) is an easy peasy procedure once you have an elementary understanding of the basic components.

Shift Backspace: If you follow the Linux community there is no doubt you frequent the DistroWatch website. One of the greatest features of DistroWatch is how they rank all of the distributions.

Installing Photoshop on Ubuntu Linux

max limpag: Having been reared on image editing with Photoshop, I couldn’t find my way in Gimp. I’m not really a graphics person but I use Photoshop often for editing photos, editing images of screen activity for tutorials, and creating blog and website headers.

Installing Ubuntu 7.04 on a HP 510 laptop computer

Filed under
Ubuntu

Are about everything: I’ve just finished installing Ubuntu on the HP 510 laptop. Installing off the Live CD, I was a bit annoyed that Ubuntu couldn’t resize the existing XP partitions, but being able to dualboot isn’t that important for this machine, so I used the entire disk for Ubuntu.

Five reasons to love Sabayon

Linux

The distrogue: You've probably heard the constant hype about Sabayon Linux, maybe that it's a perfect distro, or maybe even rumors that it's going to knock PCLinuxOS and Ubuntu off the top spots on DistroWatch. Here are the main reasons why people love Sabayon:

Linux: Rethinking Suspend and Resume

KernelTRAP: What started as the review of a bug report grew into an interesting debate as Linus Torvalds slammed the current suspend and resume design in the Linux Kernel, "why the HELL cannot you realize that kernel threads are different?"

Apt-get remove SUSE; apt-get install Etch

Filed under
Linux

Desktop Linux: Ever since comparing seven Linux distributions on my "old thinkpad" testbed, I've remained impressed with the flexibility and ease-of-maintenance of Debian-based Linuxes. In my followup article on using Etch as a desktop OS, I pondered converting my primary desktop from SUSE to Debian. I've done it. Here's my tale...

SUSE Leftovers

  • openSUSE Heroes meeting, day 2
    After a long, but exciting first day, we even managed to get some sleep before we started again and discussed the whole morning about our policies and other stuff that is now updated in the openSUSE wiki. After that, we went out for a nice lunch…
  • Installing Tumbleweed, November 2016
    The Tumbleweed system that I already have installed had desktops KDE, Gnome, XFCE and LXDE. But for recent intstalls (as with Leap 42.2), I have been going with KDE, Gnome, XFCE, LXQt, FVWM and MATE. So it seemed reasonable for the new Tumbleweed install to follow the same path. I also added Enlightenment for experimenting.

  • LibRetro's Vulkan PlayStation PSX Renderer Released
    A few days back I wrote about a Vulkan renderer for a PlayStation emulator being worked on and now the code to that Vulkan renderer is publicly available. For those wanting to relive some PlayStation One games this week or just looking for a new test case for Vulkan drivers, the Vulkan renderer for the LibRetro Beetle/Mednafen PSX emulator is now available, months after the LibRetro folks made a Vulkan renderer for the Nintendo 64 emulator.
  • Etnaviv DRM Updates Submitted For Linux 4.10
    The Etnaviv DRM-Next pull request is not nearly as exciting as MSM getting Adreno 500 series support, a lot of Intel changes, or the numerous AMDGPU changes, but it's not bad either for a community-driven, reverse-engineered DRM driver for the Vivante graphics cores.
  • Mesa 12.0.4 Being Prepped For Ubuntu 16.10/16.04
    Ubuntu is preparing Mesa 12.0.4 for Ubuntu Xenial and Yakkety users. It's not as great as Mesa 13, but at least there are some important fixes back-ported. Mesa 12.0.4 is exciting for dozens of bug fixes, including the work to offer better RadeonSI performance. But with Mesa 12.0.4 you don't have the RADV Vulkan driver, OpenGL 4.5, or the other exciting Mesa 13 work.
