PCLOS Day 9 - Wrapping up the Control Center

Filed under
PCLOS

ruminations: I am enjoying these days with the control center, but it’s time to wrap it up and move on. There are plenty of other things that need attention.

PCLinuxOS Day 8 - Between a Desktop and Server

Filed under
PCLOS

ruminations: Another day at the control center. I am impressed with the scope of tasks that can be executed via one tool. Earlier I mentioned Webmin and the control center shares quite a few characteristics with that tool (though the functions are different, of course). Let’s continue digging deeper.

PCLinuxOS 2008 ‘MiniMe’

Filed under
PCLOS

fareast.linuxdiary: Is a minimal version of PCLinuxOS that comes with just the bare bones, allowing you to install exactly what you need; the liveCD is a very fast boot, and true to its Mandriva roots is extremely easy to configure through the Control Centre.

PCLinuxOS Day 7 - Control Center Part 2

Filed under
PCLOS

ruminations: Two tasks remained under the heading Sharing: settting up file/printserver and setting up a share. The first task ran into a snag quickly with an error message that the name ‘localhost’ wasn’t correct for a DNS server. Setting up a Samba share wasn’t error free as well.

PCLinuxOS Day 6 - Start with the Control Center, Ending with Webmin

Filed under
PCLOS

ruminations: The next few days/articles I will spend time in the PCLinuxOS control center. It is a central hub for all kinds of system-related tasks, which at least means you need to have administrator rights.

PCLinuxOS Day 5: Alternative Graphical Environments

Filed under
PCLOS

ruminations: One of the nicer things about *nix systems is that even your graphical work environment, the GUI, is a matter of choice. In this article I will explore how easy it is to add both GNOME and Xfce to PCLinuxOS.

Look at PCLinuxOS 2008 ‘MiniMe’ Edition

Filed under
PCLOS

linuxlove.org: The 2008 MiniMe edition it’s just a little preview of what will be available in the final release. It’s name suits this release very well as it’s indeed small. The ISO is about 200MB in size, it provides a very basic KDE 3.5.8 desktop and ALSA 1.0.15 running under a 2.6.22.15 kernel.

PCLinuxOS

Filed under
PCLOS

garbledzombie.wordpress: PCLinuxOS is a Mandriva fork that seemingly shot up in distrowatch’s top distros list. I was more than a tad surprised at this, seeing a world where nobody ever mentioned PCLinuxOS as much as say, Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora or OpenSUSE. Intrigued, I read more about this distro and decided to give it a shot.

PCLinuxOS Day 4 - Extending the System

Filed under
PCLOS

ruminations: PCLinuxOS comes with a decent set of basic applications. OpenOffice.org, Thunderbird and Firefox are all there, GIMP for graphics, K3b for burning your cd/dvd’s, Amarok and MPlayer in the multimedia department. Synaptic is the tool to extend the range of applications and graphical environments.

Ubuntu vs. PCLinuxOS: a new winner?

Filed under
PCLOS
Ubuntu

koplowicz.com: I’ve been using Ubuntu (or a derivative) for two years now. I was amazed at how polished and user-friendly it is. It doesn’t come out of the box with a lot of the software I want, but it’s super easy to install whatever I want. But then I noticed the new cool kid: PCLinuxOS.

Understanding The Linux Kernel's BPF In-Kernel Virtual Machine

BPF continues marching forward as a universal, in-kernel virtual machine for the Linux kernel. The Berkeley Packet Filter was originally designed for network packet filtering but has since been extended as eBPF to support other non-network subsystems via the bpf syscall. Here's some more details on this in-kernel virtual machine. Alexei Starovoitov presented at last month's Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit in Santa Rosa about BPF as an in-kernel virtual machine. The slides have been published for those wishing to learn more about its state and capabilities. Read more
