03/2011 Linux SIG

linuxWe now have a Dell SIG computer courtesy of Jim Cook. It is setup with WindowsXP Pro and LinuxMint 10.

At the March SIG for new users I demoed UNetbootin to properly burn the ISO file to a USB memory stick. I demoed two safe Linux installs on a Windows computer that safely preserves Windows:

  • using wubi
  • using the embedded Linux installer for a side-by-side install


Grrr… I discovered maybe MythTV is less than what I thought for receiving and recording HD Video from Bright House cable. Seems cable only passes over-the-air channels in HD quality. I’m not sure I want to invest in recording American Idol and football games<g>. Please check this site and email me if you have a work-around or suggestions.
