Episode 45 Blag 70000 part 2

Posted in Uncategorized at 8:37 am by ewlabonte

This week I do the follow-up to the Blag 70000 installation. Some of it has the background hiss and some is clear because I managed to get my old Dell laptop working with puppy linux on a usb flash drive. I use it to record the intro and email sections. Future episodes should be much clearer. I cover installing totally free versions of flash (aka gnash) and java, adding a user account with command line and gui tools, and the installation of kde and enlightenment DR17. Oh yeah, I also read a story.

Episode 44 Blag 70000 part 1

Posted in Blag, Fedora at 2:53 pm by ewlabonte

The Lip is finally back. I’m sorry for the delay, the computer that I was recording on died and I had a hard time finding something to replace it with. I purchased a usb sound card and that’s what I’m using for this podcast. Unfortunately it isn’t a perfect solution. There’s an audible hiss in the background, but I wanted to get a podcast out so this is the best I could do.

This week I install Blag 70000. Blag is a distro I’ve been using on and off for two years now. It’s one of only six distros recommended by the Free Software Foundation because of it’s dedication to free software. I install the main system and get wireless working.
