Cutting Edge Linux

Linux information, reviews and opinions.

Everything is changing. Faster and faster progression.

Everything is changing. Faster and faster progression.

The new site does not look pretty at the moment but I want to get the domain pointing to the new site make development easier.

I currently have a front page, it is nothing fancy and simply has a redirect to the current blog after moving it to the hosting solution. This means that not all links will work correctly at this time. I am probably going to create a bug tracker simply to have the…

A small update.

I’ve been working on the sub domains for Cutting Edge Linux the last few days. I am in a mix of the planning, testing and implementation stage of things. I have 3-4 services at the very least installed and tested whether their basic functionality is operational. I have not delved in deeper to do any fine tuning.

I have not worked on the look and feel of each site at all. They are basically just…

Site status.

To be honest I was not sure what was going to happen when I switched the hosting over to the new site. I purchased the hosting but did not transfer the domain over. I find this to be the best outcome at this time because then this can be my temporary site and I can work on redesigning a new framework and layout.

I can easily point to both sites at the same time by pointing to the new site in a…

I am switching to a hosted solution vs There may be interruptions in due to this. I plan on moving the site as it is and then doing an entire redesign. should redirect back into the old as a temporary measure. This does mean the CSS of the site may break temporarily until I get it migrated over. I am planning on…

Cutting Edge Linux Manjaro Remix will not build on the KVM.

Cutting Edge Linux Manjaro Remix will not build on the KVM.

I keep maxing the capabilities of these VPS’s. So the KVM VPS has enough space to work with a net iso. The Cutting Edge Linux Manjaro Remix fails to build due to space limitations. This is unfortunate. It means a Cutting Edge Linux Manjaro Remix in on hiatus until I get a Local setup going of Funtoo.

I am planning on doing a local of Funtoo Linux install both on bare metal. Once I have a…

The current plan.

Well I currently have all the stuff for the Manjaro build server developed on the KVM based VPS. I can login via SSH and run a single script to do the entire build of Manjaro. It operates very cleanly and works quite well.

I have been tracking the Parallella project for a while now, I thought I could do something extremely interesting with them so I asked some friends for their opinions. One of…

Build server info & more.

Build server info & more.

Okay so my host kindly upgraded my inode count by 10% which enabled me to use 275k inodes. I still am not sure whether this is going to be enough to create an ISO. I was also advised that if I increase my space on the VPS that the inodes should increase accordingly and if not to ask them again for more inodes.

The error message that occured when I would run a pacman -S from within the chroot has…

build server inode issues!

build server inode issues!

I am having inode issues with the VPS that I am setting up for the build, I contacted my host to see if I can get the issue resolved. The issue is that I have maxed out my inode count when creating the chroot so it does not finalize correctly and Leaves no inodes for building the images.

I currently have used around 220k inodes and the cap is 250k inodes, it takes around 40k just to create the…

Manjaro build server progress!

Manjaro build server progress!

Yesterday on my day off I went and had breakfast and coffee. I brought my chromebook with me to do some work or at least some research on getting a working Manjaro build server that ran on another Linux distribution. At first I was a little confused at what was required.

Originally I was advised that all I needed was pacman. Great I thought, pacman is in my repositories, I’ll get pacman installed…

manjaro crouton renamed celce

Since I need something that is current in order to fix my crouton build (which I am considering doing soon.) I need to have access to a working install with merge tools and such.

XFCE + KWIN howto.

XFCE + KWIN howto.

This is going to be a general how to that does not go into extreme detail. I am writing this because I mentioned running XFCE + KWIN in a thread a friend posted about the KDE framework being upgraded to use QT5. He showed interest in this setup and desired to know a bit more about it.

I will be explaining which packages are needed and some of the challenges of running cross-de software like this.…

Wrong jumper!

The jumper I got is way too big for what I needed to coreboot my chromebook, I am going to have to keep an eye out for a jumper that will work!

Thus being the case when I have time I may work on manjaro crouton still. I am not happy about this though.

Expansion on Arch OpenVZ VPS plan.

Expansion on Arch OpenVZ VPS plan.

I want to expand on my vision of what the OpenVZ server will do, I am pretty sure it is possible to get manjaroiso working on something with access to pacman.

The reason I am setting up this server is upon request, nobody asked me to set up a server but people did want me to update my Manjaro respin, This videocaused a whole bunch of people to request an updated spin. I do not see the demand for…

Gentoo VPS - installed, waiting on reboot.

Gentoo VPS – installed, waiting on reboot.

I have completed the handbook a second time for the Gentoo install verifying that everything should be correct.  I am going to wait on a reboot due to the possibility of getting locked out of the server while at work.

At least I can use it from the ISO via a chroot and work on getting required software compiling!

I’ll post more info when I have some!

Idea for the OpenVZ Server.

Idea for the OpenVZ Server.

Since OpenVZ did not do what I wanted I needed to get the KVM server. That did not mean I wanted the OpenVZ server to go to waste. Here is my plan for the OpenVZ server.

It will run Arch Linux and be used for manjaroiso building and hosting. Having the host build the image makes sense to me because then I do not have to upload them and thus making more frequent builds would be a possibility.
