01 May 2013 - 08:11 PMWow, the release schedule feels so much faster when you're not involved in it. Seriously though, I'm thinking of getting back into Bodhi for an older Pentium III PC, it would probably suit that quite well. Wasn't too keen on E17 though, I'll probably plaster XFCE on top, I've found that the modules on that desktop seem to be more reliable. I originally switched because I couldn't maintain the Enlightenment desktop long enough for a hard drive recovery to complete.
05 March 2013 - 11:25 PMWell I hope no one minds me posting a non-Bodhi desktop here. I sadly had to switch to a more stable OS in September, very sorry but there's still an awful lot of work to do with the Enlightenment desktop environment. However, I will admit that its probably the most beautiful I've ever used.
Anyway, I've been happy with the OpenSUSE XFCE combo so far so, here it is:
23 August 2012 - 12:16 PMThere's not really much point in the app center if you already have Internet access, as Synaptic works just as well. Its just that an installer with all the dependencies required are useful for PCs without Internet access can be useful and time-saving.
03 August 2012 - 01:50 PMWith nothing else to try, I have decided to properly wipe my internal drive as it wouldn't reformat properly when I accidentally created a Partition Table. I will need a new external drive that I can perform a proper recovery of my slightly damaged external drive to.
Its been a traumatic experience but its turning a corner right now.
02 August 2012 - 06:50 PMI CANNOT COMPREHEND MY LUCK! I ran out of space on my main partition for the recovery to take place, so I had to extend my partition over the ones which I no longer use. I used a Puppy Linux Live CD which happens to include GParted as part of its software lineup. What I had hoped was that I could remove all data from one of the unallocated partitions by creating a partition table, but the stupid side of me did not realise that I WOULD ERASE MY ENTIRE DISK BY DOING SO! ;( ;( ;( So now all I have left is a corrupt external drive with unreplaceable data and a completely empty internal, mostly full of music which will take a long time to restore.
Maybe this is the way my life was planned. I will have to start my PC life from scratch with one internal partition with Bodhi Linux 2.0.1. Maybe this time there will be enough space for everything. But I am still deathly shocked that something on this scale could happen to me.
This is most probably the strongest forum post I have ever made.
