Episode 35 Kubuntu Feisty Fawn part 1

Posted in Kubuntu, Ubuntu at 8:01 am by ewlabonte

I am postponing my Ubuntu Feisty follow-up podcast for another week. This week co-host Ben Cheever will be installing Kubuntu Feisty Fawn on his Dell Latitude laptop. He will setup wireless, install Automatix, and go over some of the features of KDE that make it such a popular desktop environment.

Episode 34 Grub and Lilo

Posted in Bootloaders at 5:38 am by ewlabonte

This week I cover trouble shooting the boot manager, both grub and lilo. Configuring the boot manager is an important step in any linux installation. Though most new distros make this step easy, it is still possible to run into problems, especially if you are dual booting with Windows or another linux distro.

I create the problem by uninstalling the boot manager from a system dual booting debian and zenwalk. I then reinstall first lilo and then grub using the installation cds to access the system, and set them up to dual boot the two distros. Another fun filled, mistake filled episode of the Lip.
