Anyone into the Doors I really suggest reading 'Wonderland Avenue', its about a 12 yr old boy who becomes Jim Morrison's protégé. Later becomes the Doors manager, then lives with Iggy Pop (Iggy makes Jim Morrison look sane/boring). The front page was done by Ralph Steadman (so you know its going to be good..)

A proper band.

The advantages you mention are not really advantages for BSD over Linux.

i.e ZFS, most users will not care in the future thanks to BTRFS (which in some ways blows ZFS out the water), it is already the default FS in openSUSE

100% Os encryption is possibly now in Linux, Jails can be done in a container level.

Also regarding the installation of software see this plan for potentially what we will be using in the future (requires BTRFS) to install software - i.e the ability to never break the OS ...

Hardware support would have to also improve on BSD (i.e Nvidia/Ati) to be a contender.

As I have used Linux for a decade I cannot myself see any need to test BSD

(i'd prefer BSD over Windows however.)

The first band I saw live !

Hi - really liking the look of LXLE 14.04.

However I cannot get the 32bit revisited .iso to boot at all on my Samsung n150 netbook... (which would be better due to low ram)

I have downloaded via torrent twice - if I dd the image to USB stick it doesn't boot at all (I have tried multiple usb sticks also) - using dd works fine with 14.04 iso.

 if I wipe the usb stick and make a vfat partition - then use the usb startup disk creator (from kubuntu) - I get the grub bootloader (missing when I use dd) however after  a few seconds I get

(Initramfs) mount: mounting /dev/loop0 on //filesystem.sqashfs failed: Invalid argument
Can not mount /dev/loop0 (/cdrom/casper/filesystem.squashfs) on //filesystem.squashfs

How can I get the 32bit revisited iso to boot?

Very insightful stuff.

Looking forward to V.5

Kubuntu 13.10 is broken for UEFI installs. You will just get the grub2 cli after reinstall..

Which a really easy fix - you just need to copy the kubuntu folder in the efi directory to ubuntu.

I.e - install kubuntu - it won't be able to boot (just grub2 cli) - load up kubuntu live cd - mount the /efi partition then

sudo cp -rv /boot/efi/EFI/kubuntu /boot/efi/EFI/ubuntu

Will 'fix' it.

What happened to Q+A?
