    I did this with Gentoo linux, and it works great.
    I've also done something similar with linux mint, installing to a USB drive, but it was very unstable due to lack of swap space on a lot of...

    Is it a full install on the hard drive?
  4. [all variants] Re: Re-installing Ubuntu and not sure on which flavor I should try next

    Consider giving Bodhi a whirl, or even doing a minimal install and building your own desktop from the repositories.

    Re: What can Windows do that Linux can't?

    Windows can do this!

    int main(void) {
    long array[1];
    int i;
    for (i=0 ; i<=1000000 ; i++)
    array[i] = 666;
    return 666;
    }

    Re: Major Linux Problems on the Desktop 2013

    I'm personally of the opinion that linux is, ideally, not properly capable of being a 'Desktop' OS in the sense most people mean it.

  7. [ubuntu] Re: Ready to make the switch... last couple question on partitioning

    If you only plan on using Windows for games, here's my recommendation.

    Back up music, videos, data, etc. to an external drive and uninstall and delete anything you do not need anymore. Defragment...

    [ubuntu] Re: /etc/fstab

    Is there an entry in /etc/fstab for your NTFS partition?
    If so, you could post the fstab and we can have a look at how it's being mounted.

    [Debian] Re: Does Such a Distro Exist?

    You'd probably be looking at about ~30 hours of compile time.

    Alternatively you could compile on a faster machine for the netbook and then install on your netbook.

    [Debian] Re: Does Such a Distro Exist?

    I think Gentoo might be just what you're looking for, if you don't mind the effort of the install.
    Gentoo defaults to 'stable'(Which is bloody stable), but you can easily install 'unstable'...

    [other] Re: where to start

    A very small UNIX clone is minix. It's pretty simple, and you could get it up and running in virtualbox easily. It's a bit... of a drag if you get a bit used to linux first, but it does what it's...

    [lubuntu] Re: lightweight and heavyweight linux

    I'm not so sure this is a good idea.

    On the one hand, Lubuntu will(relatively) zip along, but once you get into the VBox... Man alive things will be slow.

    I'm also not sure that adding a load...

    Re: Filesystem Keeps Going Read-Only

    Well, you can simply edit your fstab and remove errors=remount-ro to have it not remount read only, I believe.
    This isn't the ideal solution, though.

    You should definitely check the filesystem...

    Can you post the contents of /proc/mounts and /etc/fstab, the output of 'df -h', and 'dmesg | grep -i mount'?


    EDIT: I see Larry the Cow. Nice to see such taste. ;)

  20. Re: Why doesn't someone do to Linux what Apple did for Unix?

    Market breakthrough at this stage is next to impossible.

    Further, I'd argue that, as far as making UNIX all that Apple did, doing the same to Linux would give you exactly the same product.
