I'd like to discuss how to take an LMDE install and tweak and customize it to make it your own. I could cover topics like upgrading to Sid and what to look out for once you do (apt-listbugs, our non-standard forum thread, how to file a Debian bug report, etc.) I'd also like to cover custom kernel compilation (both and apt-get source of linux-liquorix-2.6 as well as downloading and compiling the vanilla 3.0 kernel from kernel.org). I'd also like to cover additional repositories I've added for things like GnoMenu, VirtualBox, EDuke32, etc. This would appeal to listeners of the podcast with an intermediate knowledge of Linux, who may be a bit timid in taking the next step without guidance such as would be provided in this proposed podcast.
An idea I had further to this point (perhaps for a separate podcast episode) would be to discuss how I use my customized LMDE as my operating system 100% of the time. As such what programs I use, how I use my computer, etc. Might also be fun to get a bunch of the people posting in the non-standard thread:
Get a few of us together in a round-table discussion of what software we consider essential (that isn't included by default in a Mint install), and what we use that software for. New users listening to the podcast would get the benefit of hearing first hand accounts of software used that they thought perhaps only existed in the Windows world, unaware that there is a suitable Linux counterpart.
...but they have to know how to use the command line, too.lmintnewb wrote:Hot women +bikini's or scanty dress = success.
