Episode 33 Ubuntu Feisty Fawn part 1

Posted in Ubuntu at 8:39 pm by ewlabonte

This week I install Ubuntu Feisty Fawn. I will keep the episode as accessible to new users as possible, meaning I will forgo dealing with advanced issues and just cover the basic installation.

Episode 32 Zenwalk 4.6.1 part 2

Posted in Zenwalk at 9:07 am by ewlabonte

This week I’ll get the printer server working, set up ssh, download the sourcecode for and compile j-pilot, and set up my Palm Z22 to sync with it. I’ll also take a look at netpkg, the zenwalk package manager. This will wind up my look at zenwalk. Next week will be a newbie friendly episode. I’ll cover the installation of ubuntu feisty fawn, with step by step instructions for new users.

Episode 31 Zenwalk 4.6.1 part 1

Posted in Zenwalk at 7:30 am by ewlabonte

This week I install Zenwalk 4.6.1, a lightweight Slackware derivative. Zenwalk installs from 1 cd and uses xfce for it’s default desktop environment. I install the main system, add zenwalk to the grub menu, get networking set up with networkconfig, and fix a buggy environment by rebooting ;-). Catch another error filled episode of the lip.

Episode 30.5 Feedback and New User Help

Posted in Debian at 6:46 am by ewlabonte

This fractional episode will cover email feedback that I received. In response to one email I will devote the rest of this episode with going over some concepts introduced in the last two episodes that might be confusing to new users.

Episode 30 Debian Etch part 2

Posted in Debian at 3:11 pm by ewlabonte

This week we continue with installing ssh on Debian Etch. After that I set up printing with Cups over a printer server. I then install alsa, and fail to install Automatix2. In lieu of installing Automatix2 I install flash and Java directly and that finishes up our look at Debian.

Next week:

Zenwalk 4.6.1

Episode 29 Debian Etch Part 1

Posted in Debian at 5:19 am by ewlabonte

The Lip is under new management. My name is Ed LaBonte and I’ll be taking over for Serge. The first episode (#29) is up and ready for download. This has been a learning experience and that’s reflected in this episode. It’s a bit rough around the edges, but I wanted to get something out after the long delay. I cover Debian Etch, the installation of the basic system using a minimalist method with the netinstall installation cd. Next I install X.org, gnome, and Iceweasel. The format for the podcast is still up in the air and I hope that I can get feedback from listeners to help me make this podcast useful to the community.

I want to thank Serge for letting me use his website and storage space for putting out this podcast.
