    Also, MX is another MEPIS derivative that is now based on antiX rather than MEPIS. MX is more user and desktop oriented; it uses the Xfce desktop. AntiX is lighter, using window managers (IceWM,...

    In 2007 that was a great choice. In 2019, one rarely mentioned distribution that descended from MEPIS, and uses a Debian packaging scheme with stable versions of it's own software builds is antiX.

    Here are the rough details

    sda = (hd0)
    sdb = (hd1)
    sdc = (hd3)
    sdd = (hd4)

    Notice the "zero offset" numbering convention used by GRUB. The partition numbers are the same, e.g., sda1 is (hd0,0), sda5 is (hd0,4) sdd1 is...

    I am using an XFCE session running with Sidux, a Debian Sid based distribution, and I am using it with a HP 2.7 GHz desktop system with 1 GB RAM instead of my Dell Dimension 4100, a 996 MHz system...

    If we want to make this a "Use this" or "Use that" post, I think that there are three or four distros that would be really easy for you to set up and use, and they all offer KDE for an easy desktop. ...
  7. Good tip

    I actually use KDE more often than not, but for quite a while I used XFCE and liked it a lot. Even when using XFCE, like you, I frequently invoked KDE apps, particularly k3b and Konqueror. The...

    Marcel believes in transitional software

    Marcel believes in free as in freedom. He is a huge Linux advocate, and he believes in sharing, and porting software to other platforms is a way to share and advocate. Not all of the programs are...

    Stuff can be used and reused, but only if the source code is shared

    Any programs ported to other platforms can be used, but not hoarded. If the programs are modified, according to the terms of the GPL, that code must be shared unless confined only to personal use.

    Recommended Advocacy reading

    I've always enjoyed reading the informative and often amusing articles from Marcel Gagne in his regular column at Linux Journal. I have not subscribed to that publication in a while - I tend to like...
  11. Suggestions good, ... but - there's always a "but"

    I think you are absolutely right, if your objective is to save yourself grief and aggravation. You are totally right that dist-upgrade is not recommended except in cases where you really want to do...

    Interesting to see a few variations out there

    Obviously each of the surviving commercial Linux companies must have SOME business, but it is good to see that some of us can actually see more than one vendor out there selling stuff.

    I did not...

    Yes, you said it clearer and in fewer words!

    That was what I was getting at, yes. In financial institutions, for example, I don't know that anyone even LOOKS at anything other than Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Our company recently certified RHEL...

    IF you are talking about securing an enterprise job where Linux is used on servers, then in the US, Red Hat is a clear winner. SUSE is a second place finish, and Mandrake/Mandriva is a distant...

    Actually, in the interactive, hierarchical, ASCII, evolved to UNICODE space, it was MULTICS, not UNIX, that started things off. UNIX is a castrated version of MULTICS. Modern Linux kernels actually...

    Sticky: Liked the feel - almost like a return to yesteryear

    Way back when I started using computers in 1973, there was such a thing as a microprocessor, but microcomputers had not yet become common.

  22. Slackware is good

    Slackware is a very good distro, it was my first distro way back in 1995. I still try it out pretty often. However, I find downloading packages from the Debian distribution to be a more effective...
  23. Re: Maybe switching

    If you like KDE better than GNOME, definitely try out SinplyMEPIS (and maybe Xandros, too). If you're more of a plain window manager guy or a "try 'em all" kind of a guy, then try out Libranet. To...

    ftp.debian.org has been flaky

    I'm not sure about now, but a day or two ago, ftp.debian.org was acting up. Whether http.us.debian.org was or is also acting up is a possibility. However, I checked both of them and they gave me...
