Looking forward to seeing ye there!

Hi Gerard,
we tried fedora 17 live and we noticed a very good implementation of
gnome 3 that seemed to work great.
We also tried trisquel 5.5, so far so good just the same (except my poor
wifi-card that it didn't work with it, maybe because a reconfiguration
of the wi-fi card module it was needed).

We laughed a lot in seeing videos of the new wii-u nintendo
console...totally useless and boring at the same time.

Padraic suggested me this site to learn python for beginners:
http://learnpythonthehardway.org/

p.s. i passed today the lpi 101 exam 710/800, i can't believe it :-) ,
now i'm going deep for the 102.

Eugh...thunderbird messed up my previous email: I did 'reply to list'
to Padraic's message, and it just chose the first one, which was
091labs-public! :P

Is there a free software driver available for your wireless card? With
Trisquel being a libre distro, they go to the trouble of removing all
binary blobs from the kernel, which usually tends to be hardware stuff
like wireless cards. h-node[1] is a good place to start to make sure.
I've got this inconvenience, there are only proprietary modules for my
card, otherwise I'd be running the linux-libre kernel for fedora (it's
the only thing that doesn't work).

> Nice one! Congratulations Nicola!

I second this. Well done Nicola! :)

I recently reading a blog post about Unity vs Gnome Shell, somebody suggested Voyager which is a xfce distro based from Xubuntu. I haven't tried it yet but looking for the website it looks pretty solid.

I will give it spin once I get a change via USB or VM

Cool! :D
Paul (i hope that his name is correct, sorry) showed us Gnome 3 with his ubuntu.
I really liked his configuration of gnome 3, seemed to work better than unity too.

Thanks for the link!!
I ran an lspci -v, and i realized that module driver was the same of that one loaded by ubuntu for instance.
Then I haven't investigate so much, it wasn't my intention to install trisquel...it could be a patched  module (taken from the ubuntu backport repository) or something like that.
In my future plan there's an idea to use a free-libre distro.
Do you know musix gnu/linux ? also adapted for multimedia like ubuntu studio
http://www.musix.org.ar/wordpress/?cat=5
http://www.musix.org.ar/wiki/index.php?title=Portada_en
and the outstanding Dynebolic (it runs only live with the possibility to copy the home dir on the hd on pentium 1 64 M ram!!)

Thanks guys !! :-)

Sometime I'm still amazed by how many linux distros are out there... Too many to count..
Re: [galway-lug] Re: [091labs-public] GLUG June, tonight at 8 gerryk 6/13/12 6:24 AM
The bulk of 'distros' these days are just re-rolled Ubuntu or Debian derivitives. Not really sure what the point is, when you can generally achieve the alternative functionality from the base distro repos, but I suppose there are christian specific distributions, so why not alternative desktops too?
