Video: MontanaLinux F22 Preview

| |

Here is a preview video of the upcoming Fedora 22 release (running in a KVM VM). This is my personal remix (with non-Fedora provided rpmfusion-free packages, google-chrome-stable, and flash-plugin added) and I haven't bothered with the branding nor customization at all... and I don't really publicly distribute it.. but I'd be happy to share my kickstart file if anyone wants it.

In the video I show the install process, and then show all of the desktop environments that are pre-installed which include... GNOME 3.16.1, Plasma 5.3.0, LXQT 0.10, MATE 1.10, XFCE 4.12.1, and Cinnamon 2.4.8. Enjoy!

Please Note: The official Fedora live media always automatically logs the liveuser in... but on my personal remix I haven't bothered to set that up so I have to put in "liveuser". Again, the Fedora media is NOT like that.

There are a few bad spots in the video that I attribute to an SDcard going bad... and yeah, there is some hiss in the audio (internal mic rather than a wireless one)... but overall, very watchable. Enjoy!

Video: FOSDEM 2015 - What's new in systemd

| | |

Quite a bit was written about this talk when it was first given (Feb 1st, 2015) but the FOSDEM folks just released the video today as a non-streamable MP4 file. They say a webm file will come later. I downloaded it and uploaded it to YouTube but they still haven't converted it to webm yet either. Update: They have webm'ed them now.

Anyway, here's a lower quality (not much to see) webm for you.

Just in case you haven't seen it yet:

They recommend a power supply that can deliver 2 amps.

Update: I ordered one a couple days after the release from Newark. I just got an email the other day (Feb. 19th) saying that it has shipped. I ordered a case later but I think it is coming from the UK and will take a bit longer. I also found a way to get Fedora 21 running on it.

Update 2: See also this.

Video: systemd as a sitcom from Canada

|

I just discovered this sit-com from Canada done by CTV... who obviously don't mind sharing their show on YouTube because they have (at a quick glance) every episode of all six seasons posted. Watching the first episode of season 1... for some reason I was reminded of systemd. Have a look for yourself. Enjoy, eh? :)

Oh, and... you're welcome!
