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.

The latest stable release Sabayon 3.4f

Episode 37 Arch Linux part 1

Posted in Arch Linux at 7:43 am by ewlabonte

This week Ed LaBonte installs Arch Linux with the 2007.5 ftp installation cd on his new Acer Aspire 5100 laptop. He will install the basic system with the cd and then install X, fluxbox, and firefox with Arch’s package manager: pacman. And he will configure the ati video card on the laptop using the open source kernel module.

Note: I’m sorry it’s so late. I’m struggling with the new laptop which I used to edit it. The sound quality is not as good as past episodes, I don’t know why.
