LIP 22: Mepis – Compling Vim 7.0

Posted in Mepis, Package Management, Vim at 5:18 am by serge

Part 2 of 4 on Mepis and we see if Vim 7.0 is in the house. Is it? Well let’s just say we get to explore the package manager (which is excellent) and test out our old-school-roll-your-own-compile-it chops.

(Disclaimer: Host is enjoying the combined arrival of a new semester and major sinus headaches (coupled with pain killing medication) so tonight’s show might be a bit more stream of consciousness-like than normal).

Posted in Fedora, Package Management at 5:38 pm by serge

We got this one recorded and posted to the feeds early, but didn’t get to update the blog here till a day after the “release” due to travel.

Fedora continues to impress as we get Vim 7.0 gui installed with the package management system, learn that sleep works out of the box and discover some cool eye candy in Gnome 2.16.

The honeymoon with Suse continues, albeit with some interesting twists, as we set about configuring the wireless card that was not configured during the initial install. In the process we explore package management with Suse and find that patience is a virtue.
