Re: New web site

I love the new site "look". But I am still deeply concerned that one day you (simargl) wake up fed up with having to maintain everything in alphaos. If that day ever comes, I will probably abandon linux because I won't go back to what I did before I found alphaos, using bloated gigabyte di...

Side-project / ArchLinuxARM

I'm currently working on side-project using a full blown installation of ArchLinuxARM to an external USB hard disk. From the 1st impressions I've noticed that even when the PC is idling without anything to do the hdd will spin up and down every 5 minutes or so. Then I tested booting up from pendisk ...

Re: Do you consider windows malware?

Believe me, malware/spyware and viruses are never taken care by corporate software. There is no single software that can effectively take care of > 90% of all that crap. Besides they're all CPU hogs. The only way of effectively get rid of all that is using *nix/*BSD. So yes, I find Windows to be mal...

Re: To be based on Manajro?

In my opinion, Manjaro is quite close to Arch but more stable to be a base. Have you guys (developers) think about it yet? How could it be the base if it doesn't have the rolling back machine that Arch repos have? These rolling back repos are the only way to keep using pacman. Well, to be honest we...

Re: Voyager - Image viewer in Vala

What you're saying seems reasonable but there are literally dozens of applications that can: - take a Jpeg image (lossy) - rotate it - save the result to the same Jpeg or to another Jpeg file without loosing any information when compared to the initial Jpeg image. Thus lossless rotation. There just ...

Re: Voyager - Image viewer in Vala

The only way to get a loss-less image rotated: If you have a raw file from a camera and load it into a memory buffer you get raw pixels in a loss-less format. Sorry but I don't see how that can be the only way. I've posted here a link to a page that has lots of utilities that allow you to rotate lo...

Re: Voyager - Image viewer in Vala

Here it is_ for a test Eeeer...sorry Sim but, what do I do with that code? I don't know how to compile in Vala. EDIT: then again, I've been following a tutorial and it says that if I have valac installed it can be run just by using "valac name_of_the_program.vala". Do we have valac compil...
