We can see that the memory used when you simply boot to a console and log in has changed very little all the way back to Fedora 13, released 2010-05-25. We’re doing a fairly good job of keeping our base system from bloating excessively. 19 and 20 are both 30MB worse than 17, but then, 17 was 25MB better than 15.
RasPlex is a custom Linux distribution based on the popular (and awesome) OpenELEC Raspberry Pi port. Rather than installing XBMC on an RPi, however, RasPlex installs the Plex Home Theater application. Granted, the Raspberry Pi does struggle with menu speed in Plex until the cache of thumbnails is built, but with a developer focusing strictly on making Plex work for the RPi, those caching issues will be solved soon!
Ok so I'm new to Linux been wanting to try it out for months now. I downloaded Linux Mint 16 Petra KDE and burned the .iso to a disk in disk utility. I ran it after partitioning my Mac drive in disk utility and installed Linux Mint using the ubiquity -b command in Kommand/Terminal. I also had rEFInd installed. But after the installation rEFInd does not show Linux as a bootable option and whenever I try booting windows I get a missing operating system black screen. I really need help because I'm frustrated after about 5-8 hours working on it and I really just want to be able to dual-boot it easily. Please anyone help lol. Thanks in advance.submitted by Brazilian_jp14
I always liked the look of those Open Pandora mini-linux computer things. However, they range from $400-$600 which is perpetually out of my price range. However, I did come across some of those windows ultra mobile pc's that were made about 5 years back. Some of them are only about $80. They aren't the fastest computers in the world, as you might expect, but they have all of the basic components, like full keyboard, built in mouse, touch screen with a stylus.
So would it be possible to turn something like this into a mini-linux pc with all of the touch screen functionally remaining intact and being able to actually install emulators and whatnot?AgActual
I'm trying to get into the community here and would love a little education. Joli OS was built on Ubuntu and used a Gnome interface, in case you aren't familiar.
