EeePCLinuxOS: Custom PCLinuxOS build for Eee PC

Filed under
PCLOS

I've never spent much time playing with PCLinuxOS, as it doesn't work very well on my primary computer. But EeePCLinuxOS looks pretty interesting. It's a custom version of EeePCLinuxOS designed for the Eee PC with a couple of tweaks that will improve its performance on the tiny laptop.

First off, EeePCLinuxOS is easy to install even if you don't have a CD/DVD drive plugged into your Eee PC. You install it by downloading a disc image to any computer, burning it to a disc and restarting that computer to boot into a LiveCD. Then you can quickly create a LiveUSB install by plugging in a USB flash drive. This should all be very familiar to anyone who's tired installing eeeXubuntu.

EeePCLinuxOS also helps keep the install size down through file compression.

7-Way Linux Graphics Card Comparison With Civilization Beyond Earth

The performance of Civilization: Beyond Earth on Linux is quite demanding. The OpenBenchmarking.org test profile of Civilization Beyond Earth uses roughly the high image quality settings and for this article the tests were done at 1920 x 1080. As the results are about to show, even with modern graphics cards, it's quite a chore putting out a decent frame-rate at 1080p for this strategy game. Read more
