Are you into Linux?

Then you may be interested in the episode today on Hacker Public Radio pod when I talk for a few minutes under the summary A frozen Linux computer can safely be rebooted with the reisub key sequence.

Welcome to tune in and listen!


Twenty seven years of Linux is a good pod show episode on Hacker Public Radio. It gives me, among else, several new softwares to look into. By @climagic

I must tell the world: Three months passed with Linux LMDE (Linux Mint Debian Edition) as my daily computer driver. It works very well.

Coming from macOS (and long time Windows), but been playing with Linux for a few years and Unix as job daily driver back in the days.

Is it a bad idea to use a laptop as a Jellyfin media server? Is it far better to use a desktop for that?

Two months with Linux as my daily PC driver. I do not regret it.

I have walked from Microsoft Windows via Apple macOS to LMDE Linux Mint Debian Edition.

Most of my computer software, operating system as well as applications, are free and open source software.

Do you use Borg backup with Vorta GUI on Linux? Should I install Borg first and then Vorta, or is all managed if I install Vorta from the repository (LMDE--Debian)? I will find out when I try of coiurse, but if anyone know, and if you think Borg is a good or bad b/up solution both for local external drive and remote?

One week with Linux Mint Debian Edition (LMDE) as my daily driver!

Linux Mint Debian Edition LMDE lacks the driver manager that standard Linux Mint has. This is a drawback. My laptop has in addition to the Intel graphics also Nvidia graphics. If I want to use Nvidia, I am on my own (with forums, wikis etc) to find out best way to manage.

You know the buttons at the top of windows to close, minimize etc?

On macOS they are at the top left. On Linux Mint they are top right.

I have been jumping btw those OS. Finally, I changed settings now in Linux Mint LMDE Cinnamon and moved them to the left like on mac. Very easy to change in settings.

Now I wonder how long it will take until I remember I have them up in the left corner.

Jag ville stoppa in Sveriges radios kanaler i musikspelaren Rhythmbox som jag har på datorn. Det gick alldeles utmärkt med SR:s länkar från denna startsida för länkar:

Do you also use Calibre? Or do you use any other free and open source software (for Linux) as e-book library?

When I migrate files from macOS to Linux LMDE (Linux Mint Debian Edition) with ext4 file system, I have the drawback to be limited to 255 characters in file name. Some of my files have to be renamed, e g shortened.
