Who knows, the Klingons may already be out around Uranus, but we would never know.
Its actually the other way around...the old joke goes like this..."what does the Starship Enterprise and toilet paper have in common?"

"They both circle Uranus looking for Klingons"
Beat me to it... :lol:

Re: Are You Killing Your SSD with Dual Boot ?

I´m thinking of dual booting LM MATE v19.2 and the latest version of Kali Large. I am starting with a pristine new outta box Crucial 1 TB SSD so I´m particularly interested in this discussion. I have several Linux eligible laptops so I´m debating whether or not to have a Kali dedicated laptop or du...

Egads....what a fool...

There are some programs I like to compile on my own machine. Some of them are available as packages, but sometimes they don't run correctly or are missing all the features, and sometimes it's just not available for Ubuntu or Mint. I usually use the Public folder to untar and build in, but I noticed ...

Re: Bedrock Linux

I gave up. It works, but trying to roll a USB was daunting. If I had persevered, I probably could have done it, but the ISO was HUGE! It did fit on a 16G USB stick. But I did learn a few things, and one of them was that the older programs I wanted to use were all available under the Trinity desktop,...

Re: Neptune 6 - worth checking out

Oh Noes! More new stuff to check out! :wink: However, I am a MATE fan. I really liked the Windows 95 interface, and you get all that and more with MATE. I actually liked Windows 95, and I liked Win 98 SE2, XP & Win 7. I think Microsoft had too many users for their taste and decided with Windows 8 &...

The Carpenter controls the hammer only if he understands how to use it. When all one knows is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail. However, I take your point, smgordon1259 .

Re: Bedrock Linux

Oh, and about that kernel update! Since Bedrock is the gateway to the others, if a kernel update gets incorporated into an installation of another package, it screws up the initrid file. The package manager has no idea what's going on and just keeps trying to generate a new init over and over until ...

To install Bedrock Linux: - Install a traditional Linux distro to use as a starting point. See here for reports of how well Bedrock interacts with various distros. - Download the latest installer corresponding to your CPU architecture from here or build your own from here . - Run the script as root...

Bedrock Linux

Greetings: Haven't been here for a while. For the past few days I have been playing with "Bedrock Linux". It lets you run packages from other Linux distributions on whatever platform you want as a base. Since Mint was listed as "needs more testing" I decided to install Ubuntu as the main distributio...

Re: Are most Linux Distros easily broken? Your advice please.

I manage to do it by tring to make some older packages run on a newer system. Mint usually says, "Nah" and continues on.

Arch says "Eff you you dumbeff" and breaks down totally! :lol:

Re: Buying a new external hard drive

I haven't had many issues with either, really. However, some models do work better on USB 2 than USB 3. I have been sticking with Seagate because I found a long time ago, if you FILL a WD; actually, overfill, it would start to lose sectors. As of 6 years ago I still had this issue with a brand new d...

Re: Are most Linux Distros easily broken? Your advice please.

The only way I have broken distros was to try to install something that may not run on them. Arch breaks itself that way; you get the program working, then an update gets rolled along and borks your libraries. I have broken Mint by trying to install programs meant for newer versions and trying to lo...
