Not much going on I guess. Not too much to talk about
till the release version of FlameHawk comes out.

I'm very happy to report that both my daughter's laptop and my granddaughter's desktop are running Linux Mint. Both old machines had been running Windows XP. Linux has brought new life to both. Both machines run much faster now. Smile

Well I've tried Ultimate but didn't like it too much. I am using ArtistX, which is based on Ubuntu 8.04, which is a very full distribution, aimed at artistic work, obviously, but I have found it very good, stable and generally superior to anything else I have tried.

I did a dist-upgrade from 8.04 to 9.04 without any problems at all although doing this took over 3 GB of downloads. I was able to save the .deb files and repeat the process on a number of other installations, none of which had any problems. I haven't bothered to go to 9.10 as it is all very stable and up to date.

I now use Ubuntuzilla to keep Firefox, Thunderbird and Seamonkey always at the latest version, so these keep up with development and security issues easily.

I'm just wondering how things are progressing with PhoenixOS. Any word on this front?

Thanks Ray, good news. I'm looking forward to your offering when it is ready.

Can I make a special request for the .zsync file to be posted alongside the .iso file?

Thanks, Ray [NZ], using zsync in the CLI may seem difficult the first time or two but once you know the ropes it is quite straight forward to use. Smile


As to creating the .zsync file, this is rather easy too.

In the same directory as the .iso file, run the following command -

Code:
zsyncmake name-of-file.iso -u name-of-file.iso

The '-u name-of-file.iso' option tells zsync to find the ISO file in the same directory as the .zsync file without specifying any particular URL. This makes the file easily used with multiple download mirrors which are specified at time of downloading with the '-u' option [or multiple '-u' options].

Here is an example of creating a .zsync file -

Code:
paul@paul-ArtistX07:~$ cd /media/Spare/DownloadedISOfiles/klikit-linux
paul@paul-ArtistX07:/media/Spare/DownloadedISOfiles/klikit-linux$ ls -l
total 1217344
-rw-r--r-- 1 paul paul 1245085696 2009-11-19 08:55 klikit-linux-0.3-BB.iso
-rw-r--r-- 1 paul paul        58 2009-11-19 12:53 klikit-linux-0.3-BB.iso.md5sum

paul@paul-ArtistX07:/media/Spare/DownloadedISOfiles/klikit-linux$ zsyncmake klikit-linux-0.3-BB.iso -u klikit-linux-0.3-BB.iso

paul@paul-ArtistX07:/media/Spare/DownloadedISOfiles/klikit-linux$ ls -l
total 1219724
-rw-r--r-- 1 paul paul 1245085696 2009-11-19 08:55 klikit-linux-0.3-BB.iso
-rw-r--r-- 1 paul paul        58 2009-11-19 12:53 klikit-linux-0.3-BB.iso.md5sum
-rw-r--r-- 1 paul paul    2431986 2010-03-04 19:08 klikit-linux-0.3-BB.iso.zsync
paul@paul-ArtistX07:/media/Spare/DownloadedISOfiles/klikit-linux$
[Note : to avoid errors in typing in the CLI it is good to get into the habit of typing the first few characters only, then the 'tab' key, repeating as necessary. The line will be completed for you with available data this way and you can be sure that it is correct. If it will not complete this is an indication that you have already mistyped the command. e.g. for the above I typed 'zsyncmake k[tab] i[tab] -u k[tab] i[tab]]

Then upload the .zsync file into the same directory, on-line, as the ISO and its md5sum files.

Paul

PS Another Wiki on using zsync to download an ISO file, that may clarify the method if you are having difficulties, is at Get Dreamlinux using zsync
