Tony, Rob, Colin and (Mike)
Tony showed off his ‘geek box’. This is a tobacco tin filled with usb sticks installed with various distros and apps, extension usb cable on a reel, mini screwdriver set and other items.
Rob talked about his experience with MythTV.
Rob had opted to use MythBuntu to make things easier, but still found that ALSA needed manual setup and upgrades tended to wiped out the previous manual configuration.
The recent review of MythTV by Linux format said much the same thing, a very capable piece of software, but let down by the poor configuration features.
Colin wants to migrate a working XP system to Virtualbox on Linux using clonezilla.
We didn’t have time to look at clonezilla properly, maybe next time, but this task is easily accomplished with Acronis disk image.
