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 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.

LIP 28: Gentoo Summary

Posted in Gentoo at 4:26 am by serge

Our grand adventure with Gentoo must, alas, come to end with tonight’s show. Given the time required for the emerge-download-compile dance, we had to leave three of our four distro checks for the last Gentoo show. So tonight we set out to get Gvim vimming, wireless wired, and sleep sleeping. Since it is the fourth of four episodes for Gentoo we also wind down with a summary of this grand distribution.

LIP 27: Gentoo Linux – Getting X Up and Running

Posted in Gentoo, X at 5:56 am by serge

We continue on with our Gentoo adventure, setting out to get X11 configured. But first we are forced to detour to revisit network configuration. After that scenic trip, we get even more familiar with emerge and the compile machine that Gentoo is. We are rewarded with a visit back to one of your host’s favorite (but long ignored) window managers: Icewm.

LIP 26: Gentoo Part Deux

Posted in Gentoo at 5:33 am by serge

After what appeared to be success with the LiveCD install last episode, we
learn that our early optimism was unfounded. Bascially the install didn’t
quite finish the way we thought it had, so we got a chance to get more first
hand love from Gentoo. Like 8-9 hours worth of love.

Tonight’s show captures the last of many attempts to get Gentoo installed. Did it work? Well, you have to tune in to find out now won’t you?

LIP 25: Gentoo – Initial LiveCD Install

Posted in Gentoo, Initial Install, Live-cd at 2:46 pm by serge

We kick off our seventh distro of the show going with a live cd install of Gentoo Linux. This ubergeek distro greets us with a very slick graphical installer that surprises us given what we’ve heard about Gentoo’s close to the metal nature. We emerge from the installer with a new respect for this distro and look forward to more exploration in the coming three episodes.

Also discussed are portable music players and Linux as well as a tip for Konqueror users.
