Re: upgrading to 12.5 for Digikam 4.0

Look here:

There is a 32 bit 14.5 version.

Maybe it fits your needs.

No AUFS in kernel - Can we do the same?

Read the announcement of a new Zenwalk version on Distrowatch and what got my attention was this: This is the first Zenwalk Live version that is NOT using an Aufs-enabled kernel but instead running Unionfs in userspace via FUSE on an unmodified Slackware generic kernel. If we (well actually sim :mrg...

Re: AlphaOS On a NVIDIA ION HTPC

ManjaroBox. It is the OpenBox version of Manjaro. At booting the CD you can choose which drivers you want, free or non-free. Non-free loads the nVidia drivers and got 1920x1080 resolution with no hiccup. Memory footprint is 150MB. As an HTPC, openbox with tint2 is pretty cool. That's why I wanted al...

Re: FireFox alternatives in GTK3?

Remember Midori's crashing days a lot...
Can't tell you what it would do on a 2 hours browsing session but 1:30 hours video streaming seems to be without crashes.

Re: AlphaOS On a NVIDIA ION HTPC

Had to go with a non- frugal linux with preloaded nvidia drivers for this. The reason being my noobness in regards to blacklist the nouveau driver and activate the right nvidia driver. If I would have seen Scooby's blacklist tool sooner I would have tried it out. However the htpc setup I have now wo...

Re: FireFox alternatives in GTK3?

Testing Midori-gtk3 nowadays and so far it's a better experience than it used to be.
Really nice, and the flash plugin works.

Re: Let's freshen this OS up!

I know you didn't ask me, but I tell you anyway:
My favorite terminal is altyo.

There is one I would like to test out that goes by the name of finalterm.
What is intriguing on that one is that it shows the return value of an application on the far left.
Neat idea IMHO.

Re: Question for efgee

Because alphaOS uses grub4dos it gets left behind when a "normal" (non frugal) linux distro is installed as well. Therefore I had to manually add an entry into grub2.cfg (section 40) of the newly installed os. If I'm not mistaken a proper grub2.cfg in a boot directory on the alphaOS partit...

Re: Move to GRUB

Using grub2 and loading alphaOS 15 with and without os-probing.
(On a SSD not on USB memory though)

Not quite sure about the validity of os-probing because it only works with proper UUID.
And it works without it.

Re: alphaOS 15.0

Tested 15.0 and besides the conman visual bug all works well. Appreciate that the web client is separate now, nice change. Because I also have a normal distro loaded grub4dos is constantly in the way. Therefore a move to grub2 would be nice, as it also would facilitate uefi systems. The GUI sb switc...
