A First Look at Pardus 2007.1 Release Candidate

Filed under
Linux
Reviews

As announced yesterday, an unexpected RC of the upcoming spring release 2007.1 of Pardus Linux was made available to the public.

Not all the cats are having nine lives, so my experiences with Calisan (the Live CD) and Kurulan (the installation CD) were pretty much different.

The LiveCD first.

As always, I had to make sure I select the "Other Languages" menu entry right after the boot, otherwise it would have continued in Türkçe.

The same languages are available: English, Nederlands, Deutsch, Español, Português (Brasil).

The first surprise was when my display announced me:
Video out of range

The installation CD now.

The same choice of languages, sync "Out of range", then the steps for License, Keyboard, and Partitioning.

That's bad, bad news. I know I had some issues with YALI when I installed Pardus for the first time, but now there is something definitely wrong: it fails to pass beyond the partitioning stage, no matter what:

A Seat at the Big Kids’ Table at Ohio LinuxFest

Ohio LinuxFest isn’t just another excuse to travel. It’s a means for us to fulfill ourselves, and to get honest, tangible feedback for what we do and for what others are doing. It’s a place where ideas are sounded, bent, crumpled and turned until they either come out of the crucible perfect…or useless. That’s what our gatherings are about. They are about excitement and promise. They​ are about making sure the next generation has a real chance to put the first human footprint on Mars. They are a chance to insure they have the tools and the curiosity to take something apart and then make it better. This next generation will cure diabetes; they will make cancer an inconvenience and not a death sentence. Read more

OpenStack Juno is out, Debian (and Ubuntu Trusty ports) packages ready

This is just a quick announce: Debian packages for Juno are out. In fact, they were ready the day of the release, on the 16th of October. I uploaded it all (to Experimental) the same day, literally a few hours after the final released was git tagged. But I had no time to announce it. This week-end, I took the time to do an Ubuntu Trusty port, which I also publish (it’s just a mater of rebuilding all, and it should work out of the box). Here are the backports repositories. For Wheezy: deb http://archive.gplhost.com/debian juno-backports main deb http://archive.gplhost.com/debian juno main For trusty: deb http://archive.gplhost.com/debian trusty-juno-backports main Read more

Video: Systemd the Core OS (no coughing)

There has been so much negative stuff about systemd on teh Interwebs lately. It is so sad. Quite a few distros picked systemd because they liked a lot of the features it has. Why do the people who like systemd actually like it? Sure, if you look hard enough, you can find those answers... but I remembered a video where the man himself explains it. Read more
