Feisty is out

Just a few minutes ago there was an official word (from whom exactly I'm not sure) that feisty is out. Slashdot already already had a story. changed homepage to download mirrors.

Ubuntu 7.04

Did you see this Ubuntu 7.04 (feisty) (p)review. Despite what I think about some the recent strategic moves by Ubuntu I am impressed by what is coming. After reading that review I was just thinking "can it get any better than this?". I mean, it's so polished that there's pretty much no real arguments left for anyone who opposes switching to the GNU/Linux desktop based on "it's hard to use" or "it's hard to install software" or anything like that.

Guide; DirectFB and ppc

This guide is mainly writen for a friend trying to help him. I needed somewhere to pasebin it, but I will share anyway..

Ok, so first we need to get the framebuffer and libs.

sudo apt-get install libdirectfb-dev fbset

Apt broke...again

Hmm, I seem to have broke apt again somehow. I seem to be good at doing this now heh.
Anyway, basically I performed an update through the 'update' tool, and woke up this morning to a tonne of errors. I re-ran apt-get upgrade and got the following;

Was talking with Teron on IRC a bit and got to the subject of Beryl which reminded me of my problem with it. While 3D desktop is not really a must-have for productivity, when everything works smooth with it except one thing I gotta wonder why that one thing doesn't.

I want to make a minimal Ubuntu Live CD for distributing my PHP/PostgreSQL Web app and letting users try it out the easy way.

Hopefully the features will be:

* 'ne' command line editor
* Standard GNU tools like tr, ls, tar, grep, sort, pspell, etc.

I wanted to try out the latest GNUStep and then possibly etoile which looks quite interesting. However trying to install GNUStep I encountered a conflict I couldn't resolve so far.


I would like to know which is your favourite music- and/or videoplayer in ubuntu?
AND what good codecs you use along with it!!!


Ubuntu World!

Hmm, the whole world seems to be going Ubuntu based!
There are millions of site's out there, designed for the users, digg is packed with their storys!
You have ubuntu cds everywhere. They are nearly as universal as the AOL beverage holder!

Hello everyone,

As you are probably aware there are things happening in the development of the next Ubuntu version, recently. In particular I am concerned about the future of the distro regarding proprietary drivers. Libervisco brought this up several times recently.

Well I found this blog post by Ubuntu developer Benjamin Mako Hill to be extremely well-balanced. I really recommend you read it.

I fully support the opinion he develops in this post, and I thought,

could make a statement to the Ubuntu development community about this?
