wamukota.blogspot: One of the remarks I often read is that PCLinuxOS is an English only distro. While that is true when you download the iso, the road to make a localized remaster in another language is not so difficult for a somewhat handy linuxer.

Filed under
Ubuntu

kmandla.wordpress: You can reinstall Grub to the drive, but the 8.04 rescue mode doesn’t give you the option to pick a different partition as the destination for Grub. Next thing I know, Ubuntu is installing itself again. I broke out of the installer, praying that it hadn’t destroyed four hours of work. It had.

easys, some Slackware guys, and the GPL

Filed under
Linux

beranger.org: I thought I am the only fundamentalist who notices when a distro is not GPL-compliant, but it seems I was wrong. I'd like to see that newcomers are not being referred to a parasitic distro like Easys, but instead taught how to use Slackware itself.

pclinuxos2007.blogspot: Users are right when they say linux is not ready for desktop. And they are right when they point to some rough edges of linux. I would like to add a small point that many others have missed out.

Black Duck's Free Tool Digs Out Open Source Bugs

The main advantage of such tools is ease of use. The main limitation is that a tool is only as effective as its creators' list of vulnerabilities.
