    Old Dell with no OS, how do I get Linux onto it?

    If I remember correctly you like to keep about 100 browser tabs open permanently. If so, I'd love to see you try and get by with only 256MB ram. It could be like a sort of wife swap type TV show!

    Old Dell with no OS, how do I get Linux onto it?

    Yeah I was gonna say the same but I thought I’d wait for someone more knowledgeable. I am running debian Xfce with 3gb of ram (and could do it with 2) but I think I’d need to be quite clever to do it, especially with less. I suppose if you are not using a browser/etc and the brewing software is...

    Linuxnub here :P

    Weirdly obvious as soon as you started to explain. I’d always thought of it as done on live sites. I kind of naively imagine that if I was a kali expert I could break into neighbours WiFi and stuff. I suppose that’d be possible with enough knowledge (and poor enough neighbour security) no...

    Old Dell with no OS, how do I get Linux onto it?

    Wow, you are making my computer look brand new! You have 256mb of RAM, you can upgrade but only to 1GB. There are probably some OS you can get but it will be a real struggle with only 256mb of RAM. Certainly no Ubuntu for you on that! Even if you upgrade the RAM to max...

    Linuxnub here :P

    Certainly not a distro for beginners. Probably only for people who are going to do penetration (oooh) testing! Definitely not for me as I am wondering how you do penetration testing with network services disabled!

    Red Star OS

    Apparently it's really easy to switch to Bad Korea OS but once you've installed you can't switch back to Good Korea OS. If you are willing to put in extreme effort you can sometimes upgrade to China OS. I suspect it will be as popular (and good) as the music made by the Westboro baptist church.

    Layered Sandbox Filesystem for Linux?

    Is there any maintained applications which provide a layered sandbox filesystem for Linux? Similar to what Sandboxie does in Windows. Here is an example of what I am talking about, not updated in 5 years. In simple English, I am looking for something that would allow me to install packages...

    Flatpak Is Not the Future

    Well it tells you the last modified date which is what you are looking for. You can see it hasn't been modified since August.

    Flatpak Is Not the Future

    Yeah even if you managed to make zsync file for existing appimages, you'd need to download the new file to create a zsync for that which would somewhat defeat the purpose! I presume the zsyncfilemaker works on the Appimage which I suppose is more like a gzip or iso than a deb package. ----...

    Flatpak Is Not the Future

    Surprisingly easy to try but unfortunately it didn't work. I might contact the guy to see if he'll put up a file with a list of the apps and their respective hash/or last update time. Then I could check against that simply enough and download the new file. I am very intrigued by the...

    Flatpak Is Not the Future

    Ha ha - I was learning bash scripting for the first time yesterday while I was doing so I am not sure I would be the best person to help! I had a feeling the icon is in the appimage as it shows up when you run it, but extracting something like Chromium would be more hassle than its worth...

    Flatpak Is Not the Future

    Appimages are way better than snaps. I've not used flatpak as it requires installing something. Snaps are a nightmare that I wouldn't go back to. I am sure some are useful but forcing stuff like chromium on people as a snap when it exists as a .deb, or the non-sensical drive to move system...

    Advantages of running newer software versions using AppImages?

    I actually installed ungoogled-chromium from there yesterday but then realised most of that stuff hasn't been updated in 2-3 years. At least the browsers anyway. I think it depends on how the AppImages are built. If they are built from packages (like .deb) then they are more bloated...

    Advantages of running newer software versions using AppImages?

    Has anyone seen or used apprepo? They have a lot of AppImages that are difficult to find otherwise, or at least not on other listings (e.g. Zap). From looking at the Github it seems a lot of the applications are regularly updated (maybe automated from packages). I installed Chromium 98 today...

    appimage flatpak ,snap or other

    Although it is a neat idea for appimages, it unfortunately involves (I suppose) installing all the snap background guff. It also increases the possibility of erroneously installing a snap package in a drunken stupor.

    appimage flatpak ,snap or other

    Have you tried this? It updates AppImages as well.

    Can anybody suggest to me a distro for 2022

    I suppose it is maybe stretching the meaning of "enjoy" but if you are trying out a new distro just for the kicks then you might wanna think about trying out something less beginner friendly than what you used previously. Or trying something that isn't Debian based. Much like your original...

    OP why do you wanna change from using Linux Mint?

    Can anybody suggest to me a distro for 2022

    Go right to the roots and choose Debian itself.

    Creating your own ISO

    I suspect like most of us, I enjoy fiddling with an OS I install until I make it as I like it. I amend the appearance, usability, and applications. I would like know the options for creating an ISO from an existing installation. Purely for personalish use obviously. My reasons for asking are...
