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.

PCLinuxOS Day 7 - Control Center Part 2

Filed under
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.

PCLinuxOS Day 6 - Start with the Control Center, Ending with Webmin

Filed under
PCLOS

ruminations: The next few days/articles I will spend time in the PCLinuxOS control center. It is a central hub for all kinds of system-related tasks, which at least means you need to have administrator rights.

PCLinuxOS Day 5: Alternative Graphical Environments

Filed under
PCLOS

ruminations: One of the nicer things about *nix systems is that even your graphical work environment, the GUI, is a matter of choice. In this article I will explore how easy it is to add both GNOME and Xfce to PCLinuxOS.

Look at PCLinuxOS 2008 ‘MiniMe’ Edition

Filed under
PCLOS

linuxlove.org: The 2008 MiniMe edition it’s just a little preview of what will be available in the final release. It’s name suits this release very well as it’s indeed small. The ISO is about 200MB in size, it provides a very basic KDE 3.5.8 desktop and ALSA 1.0.15 running under a 2.6.22.15 kernel.

PCLinuxOS

garbledzombie.wordpress: PCLinuxOS is a Mandriva fork that seemingly shot up in distrowatch’s top distros list. I was more than a tad surprised at this, seeing a world where nobody ever mentioned PCLinuxOS as much as say, Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora or OpenSUSE. Intrigued, I read more about this distro and decided to give it a shot.

PCLinuxOS Day 4 - Extending the System

Filed under
PCLOS

ruminations: PCLinuxOS comes with a decent set of basic applications. OpenOffice.org, Thunderbird and Firefox are all there, GIMP for graphics, K3b for burning your cd/dvd’s, Amarok and MPlayer in the multimedia department. Synaptic is the tool to extend the range of applications and graphical environments.

Ubuntu vs. PCLinuxOS: a new winner?

Ubuntu

koplowicz.com: I’ve been using Ubuntu (or a derivative) for two years now. I was amazed at how polished and user-friendly it is. It doesn’t come out of the box with a lot of the software I want, but it’s super easy to install whatever I want. But then I noticed the new cool kid: PCLinuxOS.

PCLinuxOS Day 3 - Exploring the Desktop

Filed under
PCLOS

ruminationsonthedigitalrealm: I have used the GNOME desktop for most of the time in the last year and a half, but the series about PC-BSD and DesktopBSD did a lot to build up appreciation for the KDE desktop. PCLinuxOS is running the KDE 3.5.8 desktop (after updates) and let’s see how it is organized and what applications are delivered by default.

Quadcopter drone packs first all-Linux APM autopilot

Erle Robotics launched a ROS-enabled, open source “Erle-brain” autopilot that runs APM directly on Linux. The device also powers an “Erle-copter” drone. Over the last year, Spanish firm Erle Robotics S.L. has been working with 3DRobotics to develop an open source BeaglePilot autopilot for drones that can run Linux on 3DR’s popular, Arduino-based APM (ArduPilot Mega) platform. The APM Linux port was developed by both companies, as well as several academic institutions. The BeagleBone-based “Erle-brain” autopilot is built into the $490-and-up Erle-copter quadcopter.

Seven Tips To Get The Most From Your New Android Smartphone

With applications able to run in the background and sync as they see fit, Android can rapidly eat through your cellular data allowance if you are not careful. While it’s fine to let the data run free on wi-fi, you’ll want to restrict your data usage when out and about. Short of switching off mobile data (which defeats the purpose of a smartphone), look under the options in the Data Usage part of the settings. Here you’ll find my wallet’s favourite Android setting of ‘restrict background data’. Now when using cellular data, apps will only pull down data when they are in the foreground and you can see them doing so. If a smartphone is all about being in control, this is the option that gives you confidence. Read more
