05/2011 Linux SIG


The May Linux SIG might have interested Windows users too. We explored hard drive partitioning using Parted Magic, a great open source improvement to the old Partition Magic.

We also explored some grub/ partitioning problems and repair strategies using Parted Magic tools and Rescatux.

Can’t decide which flavor of Linux to install? I showed the SIG an online Linux distribution chooser and we attempted to try-out giver, a relatively unknown free Novell package inside Ubuntu and LinuxMint.
