CentOS 7 – resizing the root partition

Recently, I ran out of space on the root partition on one of my virtual CentOS 7 machines. So, I just had to extend it – which took me longer than expected, to figure out. So, in case someone else is struggling to do this, I wan’t to make a quick guide. When having the […]

Vstarcam C7824WIP

I’ve just bought myself an IP camera, just to play with. I went for the cheapest I could find, to see if it was worth anything. So I bought a Vstarcam C7824WIP. It’s a wireless camera, 720p, IR/nightvision, 2-way sound, tilt/pan, motion detection, micro-sd slot for recordings and much more. First, let me say that […]

KDE 4.13.4 tested and the results are…

Let me introduce by telling that I’m a dedicated Ubuntu user and I’m using Unity on daily basis. But now and then I try KDE to see how it works, as it’s released in new version with new features. It haven’t been able to convert my view on Gnome/Unity as first choice when it comes […]

NVIDIA on openSUSE? Naaaah

After only a few hours of use, I wanted to install the latest driver from NVIDIA for my GTX770.

Then I looked for an alternative and it turned […]

openSUSE first boot

I’ve now got openSUSE 13.1 x86_64 installed. I took me a while; first my PC wouldn’t boot from the USB I made – it turned out it was formatted as NTFS. Then I used UNetbootin, which I’ve always used. But it failed writing the menu correct, so when I selected to only menu-item in the […]

So, CentOS didn’t work for me

Not long ago, I decided to install CentOS on my PC. CentOS isn’t quite made for desktop purposes, but it’s stability still drawed me to install it with Gnome 2 (I really hate Gnome 3). After setting up the OS and installing the latest driver for my NVIDIA GTX770, it ran absolutely beautiful. But… I […]
