It’s that time of month again when I let you all know what you’ve missed out on while you’ve not been visiting JournalXtra. I would have posted this month’s review of last month earlier but I’ve been keeping my very active nephew busy while he is visiting us. Regular service will resume shortly. For now, without further ado (he’ll clobber me if I spend too much time on this), here’s the round up for last month (ouch!).
The stars forgot to shine on me during March and my (semi) trusty Linux system chose to fight back against me and my incessant software installation frenzies. At one point I though I would need to re-install the whole system but, eventually, a glimmer of light shone through the dark night clouds and I got it fixed. For the sake of your sanity and mine, I’ve written a guide to fixing common Linux software installation errors.
In line with software installation errors I thought I’d write a near complete guide to Linux software installation. This short reference guide covers many of the package and source code installation methods used by Debian based systems such as Ubuntu and Mint.
