Great show eb! Are you planning to do an opensolaris install in the near future? BTW, is wireless networking easier or more difficult to setup in opensolaris or any of the BSD varients?

Please correct the url for episode 51. The correct url is: http://thelip.net/podcasts/thelip-51.mp3 Case sensitive file name is causing failure. Please either rename the file, or change the url in the feed. Thanks for the podcast. -ED

I am listening to this episode again. I'm really glad things are allowing you to resume the podcast Ed. I do have to shake my head at the people who whined so loudly in the comments during the hiatus. Podcasts are a labor of love for most of the people who do them. I really missed thelip during all this time but it never occurred to me to come here and suggest that Ed just give it up. Thanks for the new episodes and thanks for the ones on Slackware (one of my favorite distros.) Take care.

Thank you for your high praise, Kevin. The only reason this podcast is different from others is that I'm lazy and don't bother much with preparation. I just do what I would ordinarily do and record it. The fact that people find it entertaining or even instructive is a great mystery. As far as what distro is best, it's all personal. Whenever people talk about unifiying Linux into one grand distribution, I just can't comprehend why anyone would want that. As far as I'm concerned it's the choice that makes this phenomenon so interesting.

Glad you see you are back to podcasting. CrunchBang is an interesting little distribution. Conky (with it's RAM monitoring) really shows you how lean the system is. Mine showed under 256 megs of use with both Firefox and Abiword open. That is a pretty lean operating system. In comparison, my Vista box (using it's memory gadget) shows memory usage at 1.2 GB just idling.

Hi Ed, Glad to hear you again after a 6 month break. I hve been listening to you for some time, and enjoy listening to your install pod casts. I have been a Linux user some time now, and really enjoy the uniqueness of your methods and how different it is to all other pod casts. You have helped me tremendously in how you take the step by step approach to installing a distro. I usually don't install a new distro when I listen to you , but later on. Sometimes I listen to them several times before I try an install first, and a lot of your suggestions help me out tremedously. I presently run Ubuntu 8.10 on my main computer, and before that Slackware, and Arch. I seems as though Ubuntu works for me, but enjoy trying new things out in test computers. Thank you again for your dedication to Linux Thank you again for your pod cast. Sincerely, Kevin

Thank you Ron, I have no idea why the audio quality would be so high. I run puppy linux off a memory stick on an old laptop and I use rox-gui to record it. I salvaged that laptop because it's the only one with any decent audio quality for recording. Even so there is an audible background hiss.

ed, podcasts 49 & 50 have excellent audio quality. the volume level is also high. I rate the audio #1 over any other podcast. maybe you can do a podcast on your audio set up, software and production techniques? keep up the good free open source work. it's much appreciated. your voice sounds much better and more positive too. thank you, -- Ron

I'm glad you asked, Michael. I played it at the end of one of my episodes, I forget which one. But the instrument is a theremin. The first electronic music instrument ever created. (Patented by Leon Theremin in 1928). Unfortunately, it's very difficult to master, and few people have. It's been mostly relegated to scifi movie sound effects. But a few people still take it seriously. The intro to the 1951 movie "The Day the Earth Stood Still" which I used as the intro music to this podcast, used it. I found a web site where Peter Pringle, a theremin master, publishes some of his recordings. The one I used was from "The Pavane" by Gabriel Faure and performed by Peter Pringle. It almost sounds like women's voices but it's a theremin. Listen to it here.

Welcome back! I have been an avid listener for a number of years and I am really pleased to see you have revived the podcast -- you have missed! I was even more pleased when I realised you were installing CrunchBang! Thank you. :)

Is ben still your co-host. He has not been helping you with the podcasts. Anyway, I'm glad to hear your back. But, please let us know if you plan to take some time off. Most people though that you had abandoned the show. Happy New Year!

Well I'll take that as a compliment that you rely so much on this podcast. There is more to the story, but it's all rather personal and I'd rather not go into it. Because of these reasons I wasn't monitoring the site email, but I am now. If you'd rather email me at my personal email address it's ewl at gnu-linux.us.

I'm sure it's none of our business, but is there any more to the story than "I apologize for the long delay?" Lots of people count on some regularity of this podcast, and it just seems rather 'flipant' to pop in and say that. During your absence, I attempted to find a way to contact you. It was pretty apparent that you weren't reading the comments here via email. The only email I could find on the net was a defunct one going to 'labonte.com'. Is there an email address or method of contact that would have give one a reasonable expectation of getting thru to you?

Hey Ed! Is it possible that I could give it a shot at producing podcasts? I will gladly give it a shot, since I install many, MANY different distros all of the time... Send me an email! Thanks

Is there any chance of you guy doing a show on eLive? I just got the enlightenment 17 (&16) CD, and am brand new to Linux... sort of, I already use Firefox and Open Office, and am looking to make a complete change-over soon. Thanks for the podcast - it has been an excellent help so far!!

It's good to know you're still around, Ed. I am wondering why Ben hasn't been dropping notes to keep us updated. Is he still riding shotgun with you on this?

I'm sorry, for some reason the comments weren't getting forwarded to me and I fell behind. I've got a hardy heron install that I can put together. I'm had some personal problems that have sapped my motivation for getting the podcast out. I will definitely get that one out soon, and we'll see how it goes.

Why don't you guys just end the podcast if you don't want to do any more.

Mon, 11 Aug 2008 01:37:31 +0000

Ok, what's going on here? I can't seem to leave any comments, and the podcast is going nowhere. Should we just drop it from our catchers, or are there some plans in the works to keep it going. I don't think it's very fair to the people who have been listening since the inception to not give some sort of indication that you're still working on this podcast on a predictable basis.

I'm not trying at all to be rude or demanding, etc., but do you think it might be time to see if someone else might like to pick up the podcast?



Comment on Working on a new podcast by Thomas

I don't mean to sound harsh, but if you guys continue to run this podcast in idle mode, this podcast' will eventually die out.

By the way, if anyone has had problems getting through to thelip@gnu-linux.us it's because I inadvertantly let the domain lapse. I'll get the email back up as soon as I can.

Yeah, I want to thank Ben taking up the reins. As far as I'm concerned *anyone* can contribute to this podcast who wants to. Just let me know by emailing us at thelip@gnu-linux.us or even posting on this blog. We'll arrange something.

I agree. I've never had or try to do a podcast, but I know it's alot of work and costs i.e hosting fees, buying extra bandwidth and most important time. Larry serge and both of you did a fine job with this podcast. We know this podcast isn't going to last forever and ever, so as a fan and like many others we appreciate the time and effort you put into each podcast. Anyway, looking forward to your next podcast. - Cheers

Ben to the rescue?Thought you were long gone.Sorry to hear Ed is having troubles-I don't blame him for not doing any new casts.Maybe The Lip should adopt the format of Hacker Public Radio,with many people contributing content[of linux installs of course]?Or maybe that is not workable,I don't know.Just a thought. Cheers

I'm sorry, I'm sort of in limbo. I'm kind of burnt out from some things that have been happening in my life and I just haven't put the time and energy into putting out a podcast. I will eventually get one out. I'm sorry for the delay.

Sun, 18 May 2008 18:21:16 +0000

Sorry to hear about the accident! You didn't mention any injuries so I'm hoping you came out unscathed. I have really been enjoying the Slackware and Zenwalk episodes. I'll check out Debian Etch next. I like Vince's suggestion of covering mini distros. I would also love a BSD episode. So far I've not had the courage to try even the slick "spins" like PC-BSD and Dragonfly. I have far too much to learn about Linux to try them out right now. At any rate I'm glad I found the podcast and I'll watch for new episodes. Don't let the complainers get ya down. It's a lot of work doing a good podcast and we all appreciate it.

Have you ever considered doing a re-management of your website? Starting fresh with your personal theme to the website and dropping old episodes and adding sponsor links and a payapl button. I like the Comments blog, so when you do an episode, maybe the listeners can post some additional tips about the installation and leave comments for corrections. as well. Anyway, a great show.

I've got one recorded, it just needs editing. I got into an accident with my car. I got rear-ended by a tractor trailer and the car was totaled. So I had to buy a new one. That whole process has been taking up all my time.

I don't know what the problem was with genkernel. The first time I successfully installed gentoo it was with genkernel. I think at that point I was starting to take shortcuts because I wanted to get a podcast out and I did something wrong, and then I didn't have patience enough to try to figure out. Including the mistakes in the episodes is instructive so long as it leads to a resolution, but if the whole install is a big %$$# up then it's not worth including it in an episode. I do like gentoo, but to do a podcast about the installation really requires more familiarity with it than I have.
