PCLinuxOS! Everything Works!

Filed under
PCLOS One of the most biggest challenges with some Linux distributions is getting all the multimedia to work. It's a real disappointment to not have Quicktime movies or Flash video play from popular websites like movie trailers or

What Took You So Long?

PCLOS In my last blog post an anonymous reader asked a friendly question in the comments area, "What took you so long? PCLinuxOS isn't exactly a well kept secret..."

PCLinuxOS! Wow!

PCLOS I get excited about Linux and, day after day, shout to the world through this blog about how terrific it is! I've also been running PCLinuxOS 2009.1!

Good-Bye Ubuntu, Hello PCLinuxOS

Ubuntu After almost two years of relying on Kubuntu and Ubuntu, your editor has had enough. Farewell faithful *buntus, hello and welcome PCLinuxOS. Will PCLinuxOS work out better?

PCLinuxOS Appstore Launched

PCLOS Apturl is a web-based tool that install applications on the PCLinuxOS distribution. This is a web interface for APT, and the packages are downloaded and installed from official PCLinuxOS repositories right from your brower.

PCLinuxOS comes to my rescue

Ubuntu OK it was my fault! There I've said it and its true. I broke one of the rules for Ubuntu Linux which basically said "Thou shalt not use the upgrade feature in Synaptic."

Faceoff: PCLOS 2009.1 vs LinuxMint KDE CE 6

teqnix.blogspot: In the past few days, I was lucky to be able to test drive two wonderful Linux distributions that both promises to work "out of the box" -- PCLinuxOS 2009.1 and LinuxMint 6.

penguiniplanetblog.blogspot: Not too long ago PCLinuxOS released two versions of the PCLOS 2009 distribution. One uses KDE 3.5, the Other uses Gnome 2.24.3. So, I was faced with a decision. Which would I choose?

Back and Better Than Ever--PCLinuxOS 2009.1

Filed under
PCLOS It's been quite a while since the last update to PCLinuxOS back in 2007. While Ubuntu and other distros come out every 6 months, PCLinuxOS is considered a "rolling release distribution" that gets updated regularly as new stuff appears in the PCLinuxOS repository. So was it worth the wait?

PCLOS I switched from Gentoo to Kubuntu a month or two ago and while it was generally OK, there were several things I didn’t like. End result, I switched yesterday to PCLinuxOS.

Slackware Live Edition – Beta 2

  • Slackware Live Edition – Beta 2
    Thanks for all the valuable feedback on the first public beta of my Slackware Live Edition. It allowed me to fix quite a few bugs in the Live scripts (thanks again!), add new functionality (requested by you or from my own TODO) and I took the opportunity to fix the packages in my Plasma 5 repository so that its Live Edition should actually work now.
  • Updated multilib packages for -current
  • (Hopefully) final recompilations for KDE 5_15.11
    There was still some work to do about my Plasma 5 package repository. The recent updates in slackware-current broke several packages that were still linking to older (and no longer present) libraries which were part of the icu4c and udev packages.

Leftovers: Software

  • Resuming work on Yokadi
    A few weeks ago we started working again on Yokadi, our command-line oriented, todo list. We are now finally ready to release version 1.0. This new version fixes a few bugs but does not bring new features. This lack of new features is actually a conscious decision: we wanted to make changes under the hood, and doing changes under the hood at the same time as adding new features is often a recipe for disaster.
  • remctl 3.10
    remctl is a simple and secure remote command execution protocol using GSS-API. Essentially, it's the thinnest and simplest possible way to deploy remote network APIs for commands using Kerberos authentication and encryption.
  • rra-c-util 5.9
    A minor release of my C utility library, including some changes required for the previous release of pam-afs-session and the upcoming release of remctl.
  • Feeding Emacs
    For the past fifteen years, I have been tweaking my ~/.emacs continously, most recently by switching to Spacemacs. With that switch done, I started to migrate a few more things to Emacs, an Atom/RSS reader being one that's been in the queue for years - ever since Google Reader shut down. Since March 2013, I have been a Feedly user, but I wanted to migrate to something better for a long time. I wanted to use Free Software, for one.
  • ELKI 0.7.0 on Maven and GitHub
    Version 0.7.0 of our data mining toolkit ELKI is now available on the project homepage, GitHub and Maven.
