It’s as easy to read omg or Foss as they do. I have stopped listening to destination Linux (bunch of kids), this week in linux, and all the Jupiter broadcasting. All best Paul _______________________________________________________ From: Jon Subject: Last 4 or 5 shows Message Body: Gentlemen, I wanted to take a moment to pass this along. The last 4 or 5 shows have been top notch. Door don’t ever stop voicing you opinions of the state of Linux and open source. It is refreshing to hear you tell it like it is. Keep it up! Jon-KT4KB p.s I will miss 5150, one of a kind. _______________________________________________________ From: Tony Ciak Subject: Message Body: ######### via his alter ego Seth Kenlon has had his latest book reviewed in full circle #150 – ” Developing games for the raspberry pi –he would be an interesting person to interview. enjoy / tony – linux mint for us old guys _______________________________________________________ Fwd: rpm based distros on arm based hardware Hey door First of it’s nice to hear your doing the show with another person again. It’s also nice to hear Bruce again. I enjoyed when you guys did “ramble on” (I think that’s what you called it) on the distro watch podcast. This seems like it’s going to be a lot like that. So in episode 227 you made a comment that there weren’t any rpm distros that run on arm hardware.(and if I miss heard I apologize) I run Centos on my banana pi, and by the looks of it they also have build for the raspberry pi. https://wiki.centos.org/Download There are also arm builds for fedora https://alt.fedoraproject.org/alt/ Opensuse runs on many different types of arm boards. https://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:OpenSUSE_on_your_ARM_board (again if I miss heard I apologize) I installed Centos on my banana pi so I could learn how to use a Red Hat based distro. I got it running, installed docker, pulled down an image of Etherpad, and now it’s basically an appliance. I don’t fiddle with it too much because it just works, and it’s an important part of the Linuxlugcast. It is how we do our show notes. Which is good, but at the same time, because it is serves such an important purpose I really can’t do any learning with it. I guess I should install it on another SBC if I really want to fiddle and learn. Keep up the good work. I really like the direction that “Linux for the Rest of us” is going. honkeymagoo (aka Phil) _______________________________________________________ Category:ARM Linux distributions Linux distribution for the ARM architecture.

It has always rubbed me the wrong way when Podcasters pretend like other podcasts do not exist, and are reluctant to mention the names of any unless it relates directly to them. Maybe it is just me, but I have always believed that podcasting (especially in the Libre Software space) is all about community. If it was not for podcasters sharing other podcasts I would have never found some of my favorite shows I look forward to every week (this show included). Also Door, I would like to apologize for never emailing before now. You were absolutely right when you said people should write into the shows they listen to a few episodes before. It is the only way for things to grow. Hopefully you will be able to make it Ohio Linux Fest next year, it is always a treat. – Rain —————————- You Are Not So Smart is a blog I started to explore self delusion. Like lots of people, I used to forward sensational news stories without skepticism and think I was a smarty pants just because I did a little internet research.

William DuPuie!! —— Emaail Hi Door and Bruce, I’m one of those younger persons who was put on the college path for getting into IT. I graduated with a degree in computer information systems, however I’m having trouble looking for tech positions, as I find that most require previous work experience in a related field. What would you guys say is a good position to start at? Currently I work as a sales representative for a large industrial supplies company. I thought about looking for a tech job there, but I’d have to relocate across the USA. Unfortunately we’re heavily tied into the Microsoft suite of programs, including on the back-end. This is a problem for me because I’m windows-illiterate. Since it’s been a few years I’m a bit rusty with networking, and basically forgot all of the Java programming I’ve learned. Would you know of an efficient method of brushing up on these essential skills? If you made it this far through the email, I thank you for your time. As to what niche I’m looking to fill, I’m unsure. Systems administrations would be my goal, but I gotta find a way to get there. Best regards, Robby ———- 8 of the worst open source innovations of the decade Open source innovations aren’t all successes. Littered throughout the timeline, a few failures have occurred.
