  How to Install Multiple Linux Distributions on One USB
Posted by: Oroshi - 2018-06-06, 10:44 AM - Forum: Just Starting Linux - Replies (1)

Can't decided which Distro to choose. 


Don't worry! there is plenty of choices. You can always try out those popular Linux such as, Fedora, Debian, Ubuntu, SUSE. More list of Distros


Step 1

MultiBootUSB is a free and open source cross-platform application which allows you to create a USB drive with multiple Linux distributions. It also supports uninstalling any distribution at any point in time, so you can reclaim space on your drive for another one.

Step 2
The recommended filesystem is FAT32, so make sure to format your USB drive before creating a multi-boot USB stick.Step 3
Download the ISO images of Linux distributions you want to install.


Step 4

Once you have everything, start MultiBootUSB.


[Image: 1.png]


The home screen asks you to select the USB disk and the image file for the Linux distribution which you want to put on your USB.

MultiBootUSB supports persistence for Ubuntu, Fedora and Debian distros, which means that changes made to the live version of the Linux distributions are saved to the USB disk.

You can select the persistence size by dragging the slider under MultiBootUSB tab. Persistence gives you an option to save changes to the USB drive in runtime.

Step 5

Click on Install distro option and proceed with the installation. It will take some time to complete before showing a successful installation message.

You can now see the distribution in the installed section. For another OS, repeat the process. This is what it looks like when I installed a copy of Ubuntu and Fedora.

Step 6

Next time I boot through the USB, I get the option of choosing either of the distributions.


[Image: VirtualBox_Ubuntu1610_23_09_2017_14_16_05-1.png]


You can add as many distros as you want and your USB storage allows. For removing a distro, select it from the list and click on Uninstall Distro.
Final WordsMultiBootUSB really looks handy for installing multiple Linux distribution on a USB stick. With just a few clicks.

  Getting started with the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL)
Posted by: anyweb - 2018-05-10, 08:02 AM - Forum: Linux News - Replies (1)



The Windows Subsystem for Linux lets developers run Linux environments, including most command-line tools, utilities, and applications  directly on Windows, unmodified, without the overhead of a virtual machine.

You can...

    Choose your favorite Linux distributions from the Windows Store.

  •     Run common command-line utilities such as grep, sed, awk, etc.
  •     Run Bash shell scripts and Linux command-line applications including:
        Tools: vim, emacs, tmux

        Languages: Javascript/node.js, Ruby, Python, C/C++, C# & F#, Rust, Go, etc.

        Services: sshd, MySQL, Apache, lighttpd
  •     Install additional Linux tools using the distribution's built in package manager (apt-get, for example).
  •     Invoke Windows applications from the Linux console.
  •     Invoke Linux applications on Windows.
So let's see how this works, for this guide I tested this on a Windows 10 Insider Preview build version 10.0.17661.1001, however all you need to test this is any version of Windows 10 from Fall Creators Update (or later), and that means any version after Windows 10 1703.

Step 1. Add the WSL feature

In Windows Control Panel, select Programs and Features, select Turn Windows features on or off. Scroll down to Windows Subsystem for Linux, and enable it.

<a class="ipsAttachLink ipsAttachLink_image" href="<fileStore.core_Attachment>/monthly_05_2018/post-1-0-37844800-1525938546.png" data-fileid="1417">[img]<fileStore.core_Attachment>/monthly_05_2018/post-1-0-37844800-1525938546_thumb.png[/img]</a>


Reboot when prompted.

Step 2. Open the Microsoft Store and search for Linux

<a class="ipsAttachLink ipsAttachLink_image" href="<fileStore.core_Attachment>/monthly_05_2018/post-1-0-71642000-1525937727.png" data-fileid="1413">[img]<fileStore.core_Attachment>/monthly_05_2018/post-1-0-71642000-1525937727_thumb.png[/img]</a>

Step 3. Select a Linux Distro in the Apps list


Select a Linux Distro in the apps list or click on Show All to see all available

<a class="ipsAttachLink ipsAttachLink_image" href="<fileStore.core_Attachment>/monthly_05_2018/post-1-0-25356200-1525937963.png" data-fileid="1414">[img]<fileStore.core_Attachment>/monthly_05_2018/post-1-0-25356200-1525937963_thumb.png[/img]</a>

Step 4. After selecting a Linux Distro, click on Get

<a class="ipsAttachLink ipsAttachLink_image" href="<fileStore.core_Attachment>/monthly_05_2018/post-1-0-89553600-1525938065.png" data-fileid="1415">[img]<fileStore.core_Attachment>/monthly_05_2018/post-1-0-89553600-1525938065_thumb.png[/img]</a>

Step 5. Pin to start or Launch


After it is installed, you'll get a toast notification stating it's installed and ask you to Launch or Pin to Start. If you choose Pin to Start the Distro will be listed in your start menu.

<a class="ipsAttachLink ipsAttachLink_image" href="<fileStore.core_Attachment>/monthly_05_2018/post-1-0-24209800-1525938312.png" data-fileid="1416">[img]<fileStore.core_Attachment>/monthly_05_2018/post-1-0-24209800-1525938312_thumb.png[/img]</a>

Step 6. Launch the Distro

On first launch you'll see the Distro is installing


<a class="ipsAttachLink ipsAttachLink_image" href="<fileStore.core_Attachment>/monthly_05_2018/post-1-0-35368200-1525938852.png" data-fileid="1418">[img]<fileStore.core_Attachment>/monthly_05_2018/post-1-0-35368200-1525938852_thumb.png[/img]</a>


If you get "Installation Failed! Error: 0x8007019e", then make sure you've completed Step 1.


After installing the Distro, you'll be prompted to enter a username and password


<a class="ipsAttachLink ipsAttachLink_image" href="<fileStore.core_Attachment>/monthly_05_2018/post-1-0-03767100-1525939205.png" data-fileid="1419">[img]<fileStore.core_Attachment>/monthly_05_2018/post-1-0-03767100-1525939205_thumb.png[/img]</a>


and it's done !


<a class="ipsAttachLink ipsAttachLink_image" href="<fileStore.core_Attachment>/monthly_05_2018/post-1-0-08881200-1525939299.png" data-fileid="1420">[img]<fileStore.core_Attachment>/monthly_05_2018/post-1-0-08881200-1525939299_thumb.png[/img]</a>


it even has vi !

<a class="ipsAttachLink ipsAttachLink_image" href="<fileStore.core_Attachment>/monthly_05_2018/post-1-0-88432600-1525939334.png" data-fileid="1421">[img]<fileStore.core_Attachment>/monthly_05_2018/post-1-0-88432600-1525939334_thumb.png[/img]</a>

  Wayland to be replace xorg (Maybe!)
Posted by: Oroshi - 2018-05-10, 07:41 AM - Forum: Xorg Problems - Replies (2)

Hello Folks,


They may be possible to replace the Wayland from Xorg. Fedora already start using Wayland. 


more information can be found on: https://wayland.freedesktop.org



I am currently runs Fedora 28. I find Wayland is much faster than xorg and much smoother, only downside that you may not be able to install driver such as nVidia etc.. In the future they may bring out the driver for it. I have not test any gaming with Wayland yet due to lack of time lol. When I get around with it, I can give the update.

  Fedora 28 release
Posted by: Oroshi - 2018-05-03, 07:31 AM - Forum: Fedora - Replies (2)

Fedora 28


Release date: 1st May 2018


What's New

  • Third-Party Repositories
  • Improved battery life
  • GNOME 3.28
  • Thunderbolt support
  • Improved emoji support
  • GNOME Photos
  • VirtualBox Guest Additions now default
  • Streamlined Installation
  • Much more..
Upgrading Fedora 27 Workstation to Fedora 28


Using the command line
This method is the recommended and supported way to upgrade from Fedora 27 to Fedora 28. Using this plugin will make your upgrade to Fedora 28 simple and easy.
1. Update software and back up your system
Before you do anything, you will want to make sure you have the latest software for Fedora 27 before beginning the upgrade process. To update your software, use GNOME Software or enter the following command in a terminal.
sudo dnf upgrade --refresh

Additionally, make sure you back up your system before proceeding. 
2. Install the DNF plugin
sudo dnf install dnf-plugin-system-upgrade

3. Start the update with DNF
Now that your system is up-to-date, backed up, and you have the DNF plugin installed, you can begin the upgrade by using the following command in a terminal:
sudo dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=28

This command will begin downloading all of the upgrades for your machine locally to prepare for the upgrade. If you have issues when upgrading because of packages without updates, broken dependencies, or retired packages, add the ‐‐allowerasing flag when typing the above command. This will allow DNF to remove packages that may be blocking your system upgrade.
4. Reboot and upgrade
Once the previous command finishes downloading all of the upgrades, your system will be ready for rebooting. To boot your system into the upgrade process, type the following command in a terminal:
sudo dnf system-upgrade reboot

Your system will restart after this. Many releases ago, the fedup tool would create a new option on the kernel selection / boot screen. With the dnf-plugin-system-upgrade package, your system reboots into the current kernel installed for Fedora 27; this is normal. Shortly after the kernel selection screen, your system begins the upgrade process.
Now might be a good time for a coffee break! Once it finishes, your system will restart and you’ll be able to log in to your newly upgraded Fedora 28 system.

Hello Folks [img]<___base_url___>//public/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.png[/img],


I don't expect any of you would remember me (I would be surprise if you do)... I was previous known as Vemon. I am deaf lad and used to hanging out in #Linux-Noob on EFNET. 


I would say hello again as it been so long since I had my life upside down. All has been changed back in few years, I am married, got four kids... I am hardly to use community such as IRC/Forums.


And you may remember that I am a fan of Apple products - Last year it all suddenly change of heart LOL... I am starting dislike Apple, I been with iPhone for 8 years, now I have switched over to Android. I still got MacBook Pro from 2009, it getting slower now LOL... I tried to run Linux on MacBook Pro and it not well stable especially WIFI!. After Christmas this year I am going to buy a new laptop NOT Apple! I will have Windows 10 pro on half of partition for my daughter, she can do homework on it. Other half is Linux.. intentionally to use Fedora 27 because I won't have time to build from scratch on Gentoo (Still love the Gentoo LOL). I got Fedora 27 on my USB stick so i can use live on any machine till I get a "proper" laptop. 


I will return to share the knowledge & support. 


I am looking for a good App for Android to use IRC, so I can hanging out on IRC now and again. :)

  wine windows xp microsoft access runtime
Posted by: JensenBreck - 2017-11-17, 12:30 PM - Forum: Wine - No Replies

Hi all,


I've been trying to get something to work in WINE that is the only thing of mine that currently doesn't work under Linux. I have some other programs installed in WINE that run fine so I've ditched Windows. The one thing I haven't gotten to work is the Windows portion of GedStar Pro, a program which extracts the data from some genealogy files and creates a database that can be used as the input to a fantastic viewer - again Gedstar - on my Android devices. 

The program wouldn't even start until I installed the runtime package(s) for Microsoft Visual C++ for 2005, 2008 and 2010. This allowed the program to start. I also had to set the Wine configuration to Windows XP or a portion that let's you select the database to extract would fail. With that much done it will run and process and gedcom file. Trying to open one of the supported genealogy program's database files results in an error. It appears to need the Microsoft Access runtime but I haven't gotten it to work with the only ones I could find weren't just for 32-bit Windows like Windows XP. I've tried the 2010 version but it still fails. 


I have had email contact from the developer (the program is frozen and may disappear altogether) with the suspicion about needing some database runtime package(s) and was told that would make sense as that database is an Access compatible database. So, I've been trying to find a version of the Access runtime that is for 32-bit Windows, in particular Windows XP compatible with the hope it will work. Just given the error and when it occurs it has to be when the program first tries to connect/open the database file. I could really use some help on this if someone has experience getting programs to run in WINE. 

I've check the WineHQ site but can't find anything to help. It looks like I have gotten further with this than anyone has before. I feel like I am SO close. I had to use Windows XP in WINE or the database file selection doesn't allow me to even select the database for extraction. It will at least let me get that far using either Windows XP or Windows 2003 - but not higher - in the WINE config.


I know this is WINE "thing" but I'm hoping that it's ok to post this here and hope for help. If it makes any difference I'm running 64-bit Linux Sara.


Thank you!!








<div>I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

  Can't properly configure client mode on Tomato router
Posted by: Logomachist - 2017-07-25, 12:43 AM - Forum: Wireless - No Replies

Dear Internet,

     I just installed Tomato firmware on my Buffalo Airstation G54 router.  My goal is to use it in wireless client mode to give wireless Internet access to an old PC that doesn't have a wireless card.  To that end I configured it according the directions at [Wifi-planet.com][1].  But it's not working.

The Tomato "status" is perpetually "Renewing..." and I can't access the Internet (see attached screen grab). You guys think you can tell me what I've done wrong?

Much thanks in advance!
