  1. Hello world!

    This is my very first post at this blog and it is tradition to start things the following way:

    Stay tuned!

    Love & bruises,

    Unfortunately although aaa_base may provide /etc/profile it does not seem to actually write it.

    (@nrickert -- I did check for the presence of a .rpmnew or .rpmsav before copying from profile.)

    This is what I just did:

  3. Installing openSUSE LEAP-42.2 on two EFI PCs

    by , 25-Dec-2016 at 06:09 (oldcpu's meandering thoughts on Computers, GNU/Linux and openSUSE)
    I installed openSUSE LEAP-42.2 on my Toshiba Z930 laptop, and also on my Core-i7 custom PC over the Christmas break. Both PCs use EFI and I am not very experienced with EFI, so I thought that this might be a good learning experience.

  5. Musings on the logic and discussions that lead to openSUSE LEAP-42.1

    by , 24-Nov-2015 at 13:42 (oldcpu's meandering thoughts on Computers, GNU/Linux and openSUSE)
    This post provides my current views on openSUSE-LEAP currently at v.42.1.

    I originally composed a version of this as a reply to an openSUSE user's questions, and decided to modify it slightly and make it into a 'blog post'.

    This is the 1st of 2 parts.

    This is my thinking as to the logic and discussions that lead to openSUSE LEAP-42.1. It is not original thinking but rather it comes from reading many posts of many other people far more knowledgeable and far ...
