A few weeks ago, when Linux Mint Debian Edition Update Pack 4 was released, Clement Lefebvre said that a new set of ISO images including the latest update would be available "in the coming days/weeks". Today he made good on that, with the release of LMDE 201204, with both Gnome and Xfce versions.
Jamie's Mostly Linux Stuff
Various thoughts and adventures, including but not limited to Linux, assorted bits of hardware new and old, and occasionally Windows XP/Vista/7.
I started working with what we called "analog computers" in aircraft maintenance with the United States Air Force in 1970. After finishing military service and returning to university, I was introduced to microprocessors and machine language programming on Intel 4040 processors. After that I also worked on, operated and programmed Digital Equipment Corporation PDP-8, PDP-11 (/45 and /70) and VAX minicomputers. I was involved with the first wave of Unix-based microcomputers, in the early '80s. I have been working in software development, operation, installation and support since then.
Not quite a year ago, I wrote about acquiring HP Pavilion dm1-3105ez. At that time I found two significant problems with it - the Ralink WiFi adapter and the Synaptics ClickPad touchpad.
Another Linux distribution with an upcoming release I have been looking forward to made a Beta release. Mageia Linux 2 is on a fast track now, with the final Beta released a few days ago, the Release Candidate due in less than two weeks, and the final release due two weeks after that.
Nokia's financial results for the first quarter of 2012 are out. They lost a stunning $1.
How about something different for a Friday? Dream Linux is a distribution which I was watching some time ago, but it seemed to stall at release 4 Beta 6.
Easter Weekend brought good news for Linux users. The much anticipated (by me, at least) release of Linux Mint Debian Edition Update Pack 4 arrived on Friday.
My intention today was to write a short piece about having loaded the latest Ubuntu Precise Pangolin pre-release onto various of my computers. Not much commentary, because I don't want to "review" software that is still in development, and not much detail because I'm honestly not much of an Ubuntu user any more.
I wrote a few weeks ago about the approaching Update Pack 4 for Linux Mint Debian Edition. According to a new Mint Blog post, the release is getting near, and there is lots of good news about it:- Lots of updates, of course.
With the newly announced Vector Linux 7.0 Light you not only get to a lightweight Linux distribution, you get to choose how light you want it.
Sometimes you just lose, lose, lose, which is the kind of day I have had today. It started out with the stupidity of Windows Update.
