WW has said he'd be moving to GRUB 2 (and UUID) with the new release.

I've been playing with the new Ubuntu and Kubuntu the last couple of evenings. Phew. Makes me appreciate Warren's work once again. Unity... sorry, that's just silly. Kubuntu, on the other hand, is pretty sweet.

But, I've got no sound in either one.


I was wrong. I've got sound, but I don't have sound from my antique analog TV card.

I don't think I've ever had to do anything at all to get this to work in any Linux I've ever installed. Just install tvtime and Bingo!, it's done.

Life's on overload, pretty much.

But things are calming down.. FINALLY!


But I am around, reading along, as always, and still using Mepis, also as always :happy:




Oh.. and upgrading regularly! That one is new :laugh:

There's an interesting message today from Modestas Vainius on the debian-qt-kde mailling list regarding KDE SC 4.8 and it's inclusion in Wheezy.

Speaking of KDE 4.8, it would probably be a good idea to make sure the Plasma-Active components are available through Mepis as well.

More news on KDE 4.8:
http://lists.debian.org/debian-kde/2012/05/msg00048.html

Quote:
KDE Plasma Workspaces 4.8.3 has been uploaded to our semi-official mirrors
(available for both, amd64 and i386, systems)...

...Feedback is highly appreciated, since it will help getting these packages into
the official archive.

Very exciting! :rock:
