PCLinuxOS 2007

PCLOS

ldp.ifroog.com: I was extremely happy with Arch, and it convinced me that Ubuntu was too bloated, and that GNOME hurts my eyes. Arch randomly crashed, and I was in a distro-hopping mood, so I decided to try PCLOS.

linux-blog.org: To equip the standard PCLinuxOS user with how to change repos, we first need to understand how the repository is structured, how the developers use the repositories, and how the community should make use of repositories.

Just what is up with PCLinuxOS anyway?

Filed under
PCLOS

Why I Can't Wait for PCLinuxOS 2008

Filed under
PCLOS

junauza.com: Though PCLOS is not my most favorite Linux distro, I honestly consider it as one of the best. I have used the May 2007 stable release version and I was really impressed with almost all of its features. For now, I'll act like a fanboy and write a short list of expectations for the upcoming PCLinuxOS 2008(?).

Is PCLinuxOS Stale?

Filed under
PCLOS

kzimm.wordpress: Recently, I’ve been reading posts talking about how PCLinuxOS is “stale”, “going downhill”, or even “dying”. They point out that the “current” version of PCLOS is 2007, has an out-of-date kernel, and won’t recognize the latest hardware.

Filed under
PCLOS

lazytechguy.com: PCLinuxOS was the perfect distribution in 2007. It had all the bells and whistles to be an excellent Windows XP alternative. However, this is 2008 and almost end of 2008. A lot has changed since then.

Filed under
PCLOS

bitburners.com: PCLinuxOS is awesome. Especially I like the “2008 MiniMe” edition, which comes as a bare-bone installable live CD, and contains only the KDE desktop essentials. I have recently installed a couple of PCLinuxOS systems. Along the way I learned a few useful tricks, which I wanted to share with the public.

  • Announcing the Shim review process [Ed: accepting rather than fighting very malicious things]
    However, a legitimate criticism has been that there's very little transparency in Microsoft's signing process. Some people have waited for significant periods of time before being receiving a response. A large part of this is simply that demand has been greater than expected, and Microsoft aren't in the best position to review code that they didn't write in the first place.

Those of you using Chakra GNU/Linux as your daily drive will be happy to learn that the stable repos were filled with numerous up-to-date packages from the recently released KDE Plasma 5.9.3 desktop environment, KDE Applications 16.12.3 software suite, and KDE Frameworks 5.32.0 collection of over 70 add-on libraries for Qt 5.
  • YaST Team: Highlights of YaST development sprint 32
    One of the known limitations of the current installer is that it’s only able to automatically propose an encrypted schema if LVM is used. For historical reasons, if you want to encrypt your root and/or home partitions but not to use LVM, you would need to use the expert partitioner… and hope for the best from the bootloader proposal. But the new storage stack is here (well, almost here) to make all the old limitations vanish. With our testing ISO it’s already possible to set encryption with just one click for both partition-based and LVM-based proposals. The best possible partition schema is correctly created and everything is encrypted as the user would expect. We even have continuous tests in our internal openQA instance for it. The part of the installer managing the bootloader installation is still not adapted, which means the resulting system would need some manual fixing of Grub before being able to boot… but that’s something for an upcoming sprint (likely the very next one).

The Tinker Board also sports an integrated ARM-based Mali T764 graphics processor (GPU).
