PostX 0.3 first beta release date and timetable

As I am currently working towards making the next PostX release, which will have some extensive changes, I am pleased to announce that the first beta release will become available on Monday 31st of August. Before the given date I will try to push all the remaining things, which came with the previous PostX version, to my website for a larger public. I will also do some updates to the PostX 0.2.5 base, which will include at least:

A more recent kernel, a more recent audax-programs package and possibly some artwork tune-ups. The plan is to do a more robust kernel, which will be included to both PostX 0.2.5 and 0.3 versions. The audax-programs package will also continue be as identical as possible between the releases. Also, the plan is to continue maintaining a more active approach to kernel building once PostX 0.3. is released. I will try to find time during the next weekend to build a new kernel, which I will then push to both current and beta repositories of PostX

The schedule looks like this now. Read more →

Below you will see a list of screenshots, which will clarify how to use the program

 

Copy the program to /usr/share and run it with the command above.

Copy the program to /usr/share and run it within a terminal using the command above. You can change the location path but then you also need to tweak some lines within the program (this is easily achieved).

Integrated graphics card and PCI graphics card: the problem of dual output

My summer break is over and it is time to return to the awesome world of Unix systems. Today, I am going to talk about an annoying problem which I faced with the new UEFI Bios a while back: the problem of dual output.

Why is dual output a problem? Well if you happen to have a computer, which supports simultaneous outputs (meaning: bios lets you choose to use both graphics card outputs at same time) you will more than likely encounter a notorious Xserver crashing issue, which prevents you from getting to your desktop altogether.
