I never liked ABS, and it doesn't integrate into pacman at all. You can add additional ebuild repositories (called overlays) to portage and install stuff that wasn't in the main repository, and you don't have to use a separate program like yaourt to install stuff from your overlays. It's similar to how 3rd party repos work in other distros like Debian or Red Hat.
Arch isn't "bad", but it's really overhyped.
What would be a good remote desktop solution for my linux box?
I need something that I access from my phone?
I don't think there's a way to get x11 forwarding to work on android but I might be wrong.
Either way. If I can get it to work how can I start the app from my phone and let it run after I kill the session. Also would it be paussible to use an already running app through x11 forwarding.
To me it sounds like vnc is the better solution. I am still curious as to if this is doable with x11 forwarding.
there is an implementation of X11 for android but it's terribly slow and buggy and you don't even want to bother with it in it's current stages
just stick to a vnc
aaaa fuck wireless drivers
I went to do a debian netinst on my desktop and it turns out I have the ONE wireless card that isn't supported by the kernel without firmware and the installer seems to not want to load the fucking firmware for my card.
(If I could use ethernet in my room I would)
I've connected my galaxy note to my laptop w/ a USB cable but I'm not able to transfer files between the two, what would I need to do to fix this?
Did you enable usb storage mode? or whatever its called.
Thank you, you're massively helpful boris-b.
So what would the best distro to put on a laptop be in terms of ease of connections, power, etc. Friend's laptop needs an OS on it and he won't pay for windows, so I told him I could get him set up.
I am shifting over to Mint 12 KDE in 5 minutes.
I seriously need to get Arch soon.
Prepare for an flood of people who have never used Linux when people start receiving Raspberries.
Does someone know how to install StarOffice through Terminal?
StarOffice hasn't existed for like a couple of years, it became OpenOffice which then became LibreOffice.
I just think that Libre is to simple, i really don't like it.
Also, when i use Unetbootin to get linux mint 12 KDE 64 bit to my USB it freezes at 92% aka 175 files?
GOD! LIBRE IS SOOO... Sorry the caps, but seriously miss word.
I like Abiword.
Could someone assist me through install of KDE Mint 12?
It freezes, i am doing it over a USB.
Who found this funny?
Anyone have any ideas why when using SFML( a C++ library) on Lubuntu im getting like 135ms to render a frame, yet when I was using Ubuntu it would cap at 16ms
All that has changed (I think) is the desktop manager
Linux noob here. Only used Ubuntu. Wanting to get into Arch.
I want it to look like this for extra nerd points. I understand Arch Linux doesn't have a window manager by default? How would I go about setting it up like this:
That looks like awesome wm with some fancy configuration. See if you can get the rc.lua file from where you got the picture.
What Distro would be good for a notebook PC?
Seriously, i've been stuck here for hours now. It just freezes? I have a 4GB usb drive, and there is over 2GB left, but it just stays there at 92% aka 175 files?
Again sorry, right after i posted this it fixed itself.
I removed the image so it wouldn't take the page longer to load.
Cya when i get KDE mint installed
linuxzoo.net is awesome, right now using fedora core with android's connectbot
