Episode 51 Mandriva 2009.0 xfce

Posted in Mandriva at 11:49 am by ewlabonte

This episode I install the xfce version of Mandriva 2009.0. It’s a very user friendly distro and great for people who want to avoid the command line. The artwork is also very well done. I didn’t have much to say so I skipped the intro.

Episode 50 Upgrading Slackware

Posted in Slackware at 6:46 pm by ewlabonte

Well I got this one out in record time :). Upgrading slackware from one version to another has a reputation for being intimidating, but it isn’t. It’s not as easy as “apt-get dist-upgrade” but the instructions are relatively simple and straight forward. In this episode I upgrade a 12.1 slackware installation to 12.2 using Pat Volkerding’s “preferred” method. I hope you enjoy it.

The section where I reconfigure the configuration files in /etc was originally long and boring so I truncated it after a few examples and went right to the end.
