From Mars to electric sheep and everything in between. Failed installation tip from the show notes of Going Linux episode 15. You, like Larry, may have decided to upgrade your existing PC and not to buy a new Linux ultrabook with a super-fast solid-state drive. When installing a solid-state drive in your Linux machine, there are several things you will need to do to optimize Linux to get the best performance from the drive.

My non-listed printer doesn’t play well with Arch, and the contortions needed to port a .deb driver to a PKGBUILD is ridiculous. Waiting for the money to buy another printer that’s on the list. After setting up the printer in this way, you’ll definitely want to print a test page to confirm that the printer driver you selected worked properly.

Shit just tends to get thrown around and left out by my computers because I’m constantly pulling stuff out and fiddling with things. Anyways, here is my triple 24″ monitor setup. Its Linux here running on a Core i7 920 with 12GB of RAM and dual NVidia 9500 GT cards.
