Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Technical support, how can I help you?

My brother called and wanted help installing Linux on his computer. Since I had read several positive opinions on Ubuntu, which also is based on Debian that I am a member of, I recommended that he should try it out.

Guiding someone through the installation of a Linux version I haven’t tried myself, over the telephone, was an interesting experience, but it seems that the installation was successful, hopefully everything will work out fine. Nice to be able to attract more people to the right path, just too bad that what was needed to provoke it was a crashed Windows installation...

Du måste ju medge att jag inte är alltför obegåvad vad det gäller att komma på lösningar för hur jag skulle göra....

Nåväl... Jag har fått det att snurra igång, men det är inte lika intuitivt gjort som Knoppix-Exton och Adios-Exton som jag körde från CD, detta beror antagligen på att de olika cd:na var fullpackade med program och funktionalitet som jag själv nu skall kunna skapa i Ubuntu.

"Adios Exton" låter som någon spansk-engelsk film om att ta examen från en högre skolutbildning.

Tjaa... vad ska man säga... namnet till trots hjälpte det mig att backa up det jag behövde från hårddisken.
