Moving from Gentoo to Ubuntu for a while

riconthego.blogspot: With much teasing or coaxing from Ax, I've installed Ubuntu Linux on my Toshiba P20, replacing the installation of Gentoo Linux on it.

Should we be lesser GNUs?

Filed under
Gentoo

flameeyes.eu: I have sincere doubts when people insist on calling Gentoo a GNU/Linux distribution, mostly because we’re well versed in supporting non-GNU Free Software alternatives, even if sometimes it’s quite difficult to do so.

Architectures and Gentoo

Filed under
Gentoo

armin762.wordpress: In gentoo we support 13 different architectures. Although amd64 and x86 are the most common and popular, they are only 2 architectures of the total 13 we support, so i thought i could write about the rest of the architectures and their status on Gentoo.

Larry The Cow Graphics Contest

Gentoo

gentoo.org: Larry the cow is our prized mascot and he is not getting the respect he deserves. Just about every other Linux distribution, their mascot is adorned on t-shirts and other types of schwag, but not our Larry, he cannot even decide his gender. Please help up fix this.

wonkabar.org: Alright, so in my quest to move forward with my life, I'm going to be discarding certain projects that I really haven't been making a priority. Planet Larry is one of those.

Broken every other week

Gentoo

blog.flameeyes.eu: I’m seriously disappointed in Gentoo; even after my last post on the topic the Gentoo quality seems to be on a downward spiral, rather than climbing up. The problem is social: too many developers don’t give a f*ck.

gentoo.org: As the quantity and quality of this year's entries will attest, Gentoo is alive, well, and taking no prisoners!

OpenSUSE 11.3, the best binary KDE distribution or best KDE distribution?

Filed under
KDE
Gentoo
SUSE

linuxtweaking.blogspot: I have been using Gentoo for a few months and it has been a good experience but generally I can't see myself continuing to use it. Funnily enough, OpenSUSE 11.3 has changed some of my thoughts about Gentoo.

Would Mark Shuttleworth use Gentoo had he not founded Ubuntu?

Ubuntu

rrr.thetruth.de: Fortunately, sping said almost everything there is to say about LinuxTag. But there’s one important part missing: We finally made a peace treaty with what many call Gentoo’s arch nemesis (no pun intended?): Ubuntu.

Nouveau On Oibaf PPA Is Back To Running Well

Upstream Nouveau was unaware of this issue that was affecting my entire assortment of NVIDIA GeForce hardware so it was then quickly assumed to be an issue with the Oibaf PPA that constantly is packaging the latest open-source Linux GPU drivers. On top of mainline Mesa Git, recently there's been the the Gallium3D Direct3D 9 patches (Gallium-Nine). While none of my testing was relying upon the Gallium-Nine D3D9 support, it was wreaking havoc on the system anyhow. As of earlier today some patches were backed out of the Oibaf PPA and since getting back closer to Mesa mainline the Nouveau problems are a matter of the past. With that said, now I'm in the process of running some Nouveau Steam/Source Engine Linux gaming tests similar to today's 20-Way Radeon Comparison With Open-Source Graphics For Steam On Linux Gaming.

Red Hat Shake-up, Desktop Users, and Outta Time

Our top story tonight is the seemingly sudden resignation of Red Hat CTO Brian Stevens. In other news, John C. Dvorak says "Linux has run out of time" and Infoworld.com says there may be problems with Red Hat Enterprise 7. OpenSource.com has a couple of interesting interviews and Nick Heath has five big names that use Linux on the desktop. Read more

Kano's Alejandro Simon: If This, Then Do That

The OS has been available since February. It is open source. We tried to release a new version of it every two or three weeks. Anybody who runs Rasperry Pi can use it. So we already have users. They share content and discuss features and exchange idea on our forums. So far, we have sold 18,000 kits since last year, through the Kickstarter campaign via preorder. We are now in production and have most of the different pieces in place. We will start shipping by the beginning of September, hopefully. We do the materials and the hardware and the components and the packages ourselves. Finally, it is all coming together. Read more

Why Linux Isn't a Desktop Alternative

The year of the Linux desktop has become a joke, referred to ironically when mentioned at all. Under the circumstances Linus Torvalds showed either courage or naivete when he admitted last week at Linuxcon that he still wants to see Linux become popular on the desktop. However, neither Torvalds nor anyone else should stay up nights waiting for the event. Most users have no awareness of the possibility, or set impossible standards for it, even though, for a minority, the year of the Linux desktop happened years ago. The problem is not a technical one, as it was in Linux's earliest days. Linux desktops like KDE's Plasma or Linux Mint's Cinnamon are not only the equal of any proprietary desktop, but in many ways more advanced. Read more
