Episode 52 Fedora 10

Posted in Fedora at 9:26 am by ewlabonte

This week I install Fedora 10 from the live cd installer. It’s a single cd installer compared to the traditional 3 cd or 1 dvd installation method. Anaconda, the Red Hat installation program is accessed through an icon on the Gnome desktop. My atheros built in wireless card was automatically detected due to the 2.6.27 kernel. All in all a very impressive release.

Episode 51 Mandriva 2009.0 xfce

Posted in Mandriva at 11:49 am by ewlabonte

This episode I install the xfce version of Mandriva 2009.0. It’s a very user friendly distro and great for people who want to avoid the command line. The artwork is also very well done. I didn’t have much to say so I skipped the intro.

Episode 50 Upgrading Slackware

Posted in Slackware at 6:46 pm by ewlabonte

Well I got this one out in record time :). Upgrading slackware from one version to another has a reputation for being intimidating, but it isn’t. It’s not as easy as “apt-get dist-upgrade” but the instructions are relatively simple and straight forward. In this episode I upgrade a 12.1 slackware installation to 12.2 using Pat Volkerding’s “preferred” method. I hope you enjoy it.

The section where I reconfigure the configuration files in /etc was originally long and boring so I truncated it after a few examples and went right to the end.

Episode 49 #!Crunchbang

Posted in Crunchbang, Ubuntu at 7:54 am by ewlabonte

Well, the Lip is back. I apologize for the long delay. This episode I cover the installation of Crunchbang Linux. Crunchbang is based on Ubuntu Intrepid and uses Openbox for it’s window manager. You also get to hear my wife and I sniping at each other as I try to get her to participate in the podcast. Great fun for the whole family ;) I hope to be more diligent at getting these out in the future.

Working on a new podcast

Posted in Gentoo at 2:12 pm by bcheever

Hi, I know it’s been a while since Ed or I have done any shows or even posted on here. I wanted people to know that we are still alive. However, we both have just had lot of really important things in life come up right now. I’m working on a podcast for installing Gentoo Linux Beta 2008.0 on a home server that I have.

I only have about 30 minutes worth of content recording so far, so not quite enough for a whole show yet. But I wanted to let you guys know that we are trying.

For those of you that aren’t sure what it’s like trying to get a show out in a timely fashion when there is no pay or sometimes even no thanks involved in it. I welcome you to try doing a podcast :)

Thanks!
- Ben

Episode 48 Gentoo part 3

Posted in Gentoo at 11:55 am by ewlabonte

The Lip is finally back after a month’s delay. I’ve been struggling with gentoo but I finally finished recording and editing this episode. This week I install Xwindows, I get wireless working with wifi-radar, and I set my printer up. There will be a part 4 also. I still have to install gnome and another window manager. This is a bit shorter than most episodes, sort of in compensation for the 2 hour marathon last episode.

Episode 47 Gentoo part 2

Posted in Gentoo at 4:08 pm by ewlabonte

This week I do the second Gentoo episode. I configure and compile the kernel and do some system configuration and finally get to boot into the new gentoo installation. All this takes almost 2 hours. That’s long for a podcast but I wanted to get at least that far by the second episode so that I can cover XWindows installation in the third. I recorded the episode around the time that the mailman comes so you can hear my dog barking in the background for about 10 or 15 minutes. I didn’t realize at the time that the mic would pick it up so clearly. Hopefully it’s not too distracting.

Episode 46 Gentoo part 1

Posted in Gentoo at 5:37 pm by ewlabonte

I begin installing gentoo in this episode with the 2007.0 minimal install cd. This will be the first of several episodes on gentoo because installing gentoo is a bit tricky and takes more time than most distros. I install the stage 3 tarball and download and install portage, the gentoo package system. The episode ends just before I install and configure the kernel. This should be a very educational series of episodes.

Episode 45 Blag 70000 part 2

Posted in Uncategorized at 8:37 am by ewlabonte

This week I do the follow-up to the Blag 70000 installation. Some of it has the background hiss and some is clear because I managed to get my old Dell laptop working with puppy linux on a usb flash drive. I use it to record the intro and email sections. Future episodes should be much clearer. I cover installing totally free versions of flash (aka gnash) and java, adding a user account with command line and gui tools, and the installation of kde and enlightenment DR17. Oh yeah, I also read a story.

Episode 44 Blag 70000 part 1

Posted in Blag, Fedora at 2:53 pm by ewlabonte

The Lip is finally back. I’m sorry for the delay, the computer that I was recording on died and I had a hard time finding something to replace it with. I purchased a usb sound card and that’s what I’m using for this podcast. Unfortunately it isn’t a perfect solution. There’s an audible hiss in the background, but I wanted to get a podcast out so this is the best I could do.

This week I install Blag 70000. Blag is a distro I’ve been using on and off for two years now. It’s one of only six distros recommended by the Free Software Foundation because of it’s dedication to free software. I install the main system and get wireless working.

Slightly longer hiatus

Posted in Uncategorized at 7:03 am by ewlabonte

I’m sorry, the break that I’ve been taking from the show is longer than I anticipated. I won’t be able to get a show out until after the first of the year. If there is anyone out there who would like to record an installation, or any other install-related content, email me at thelip@gnu-linux.us and let me know. If it’s really good then you can be a co-host.

Short hiatus

Posted in Uncategorized at 9:31 am by ewlabonte

I’m sorry I haven’t been able to get a show out in the past two weeks or so. I’ve been involved with something that has been taking up my time. But take heart! I haven’t abandoned this podcast! A new one will come out soon.

Episode 43 OpenSUSE 10.3 part 1

Posted in Uncategorized at 10:36 am by ewlabonte

This week I will be installing openSuse version 10.3, just released. I will install the Gnome single cd version. I’ll get the system up and running on my Acer laptop and I’ll investigate installing packages through Yast. I’ll also get wireless working after much frustration and beating my head against the wall a few times.

Episode 42 Slackware 12 part 3

Posted in Slackware at 10:11 pm by ewlabonte

This week I’ll be finishing up with Slackware 12. I’ll get wifi-radar to work for the regular user through a button in the kde panel. Then I’ll get cups to work with my printer server. I’ll also investigate slackpkg, the tool for updating slackware. And I’ll install wine and set up the windows version of AcrossLite to work with it.

Episode 41 Slackware 12 part 2

Posted in Slackware at 8:26 am by ewlabonte

Today I’ll be doing the follow-up to my initial Slackware 12 installation. I’ll get Slackware working with my wireless card using wifi-radar, and I’ll explore the various ways of getting packages installed on Slackware. I’ll explore using precompiled packages from LinuxPackages.net and Slacky, I’ll use checkinstall together with compiling from source code in order to create Slackware packages and I’ll use the slackbuild scripts at slackbuild.org to create and install slack packages.

Episode 40 Slackware 12 part 1

Posted in Slackware at 10:10 pm by ewlabonte

This episode I install Slackware 12 on an Acer laptop. I get the main system installed along with kde, and I install the synaptics touchpad driver. I’m anticipating investigating the different ways to install software on Slackware, especially the new Slackbuild website. Ben had to take this week off. He will follow up his Sabayon installation either next week of the week after.

Episode 39 Sabayon Linux Part 1

Posted in Compiz Fusion, Gentoo, Sabayon at 12:39 pm by bcheever

This week I’m covering Sabayon Linux. This distribution of Linux is based off of Gentoo Linux. It aims to be newbie friendly. But it’s also great for customization and tweaking. You compile all packages from source using a BSD ports style package management system.

Stay tuned to hear all my screw ups and rants.
