Re: Debian vs Ubuntu base philosophy

Dataman says: I could not tolerate the php running at Debian testing. Not sure what you mean by this. PHP + HTTPD is not a big overhead if it must be running. Perhaps you could elaborate? And what did you mean by a testing level distro? The quality control / testing standards are what attract me to ...

Re: Debian vs Ubuntu base philosophy

That's not much of an answer clfarron4. WHY is that the case?

Long term support schedule

Updates, upgrades & versions

I installed Mint 13 last year, used it for a month or so and haven't used it again until now. So I did an apt-get update followed by an apt-get dist-upgrade which ran to completion, no errors noted. And yet after I rebooted the system & logged in the sysinfo panel summary still says Linux Mint 13 Ma...

Re: Accessing my grandma's computer remotely

I'm trying to prototype / test a remote setup I can use to do tech support accros the internet. The problem I'm having is that I'm not getting a bi-directional connection. I'm using a Mac and Linux Mint 13 running as a virtual machine on the Mac. I created an RDS key pair for ssh to tunnel VNC throu...
