SystemRescueCd 1.3.1 Includes Filesystem Benchmarking Tools

,----[ Quote ]
| SystemRescueCd creator FranÃois Dupoux is committed 
| to keeping his distribution running on the latest and 
| greatest software, because yesterday he released 
| SystemRescueCD 1.3.1 and, as everyone is expecting, 
| it is powered by version of the Linux 
| kernel. Along with that you will find a 
| alternative kernel, a fresh NTFS-3G, 2009.4.4-AR19, 
| and PartImage 0.6.8, which allows you to disable SSL 
| at runtime.


My Slackware 13 review

,----[ Quote ]
| Well Slackware 13 was released a few weeks back and I 
| had a chance to install it on my laptop. I ran 
| Slackware as my main Linux distro for about 2 years. 
| Itâs reputation as being stable and solid are well 
| earned. If you run Slackware for any significant 
| amount of time you will learn the intricacies of how 
| Linux works. The packages that come by default in the 
| latest version of Slackware are pretty up to date and 
| an official 64 bit distribution is now available. 


Which Linux do you tell n00bs to use?

,----[ Quote ]
| Depending on the type of person who asks me I 
| generally recommend either Ubuntu or Pardus. Those 
| are both the most well known (here at least) and 
| targeted for those new to Linux. I have also heard 
| of, but never tried, MintOS and PCLinuxOS. They also 
| have the reputation of being easy to use. I would 
| never recommend a Linux distribution like Fedora, 
| Debian or Gentoo unless someone has some experience 
| with Linux. Never mind that all Linux distributions 
| are pretty much the same under the hood. What hooks 
| people is the desktop experience, not the technical 
| elegance of how a Linux distribution is put together.

| the tiny Gentoo-based operating system for systems administration and data
| recovery, as it now has a new desktop environment, Xfce4, and it is powered
| by the just released Linux kernel Without further introduction,
| let's have a detailed look at the main features of SystemRescueCd 1.2.0...

SystemRescueCD 1.1.1 Introduces Support for Ralink Wireless USB Adaptors

,----[ Quote ]
| A new version of the SystemRescueCD is out and it brings important updates
| for various packages, new network drivers, the most awaited rt73 firmware for
| Wireless USB adaptors powered by the Ralink chipset, and a handful of bug
| fixes.
| A day after the release of SystemRescueCD 1.1.1 on November 10th, the

Build a customized SystemRescueCd with your own kernel

,----[ Quote ]
| SystemRescueCd comes with four kernels which are rescuecd, rescue64 (standard
| kernels) and altker32, altker64 (alternative kernels). Anyway, you may want
| to compile your own linux kernel just because you need another driver, or you
| want more recent sources, or just different compilation options.


Essential Linux Tool: SystemRescueCd

,----[ Quote ]
| SystemRescueCd 1.0.3 is an amazingly handy tool that's essential for system
| administrators and IT technicians. However, it's also very easy to use that I
| think even a regular Linux user can handle it. I'm so glad that I found
| SystemRescueCd because it has all the tools that I need to keep me from being
| paranoid of losing all of my essential files.
