Ubuntu Based Media Center – Mythbuntu

Posted by Thejesh GN On June - 7 - 2007

There seems to be a series of Ubuntu based Linux distros coming out. The new one being Mythbuntu. Mythbuntu is for home user who wants use his comp as media center. The alpha release is out. You can download the live CD iso at their site.

Mythbuntu is an Ubuntu derivative focused upon setting up a standalone MythTV system similar to Knoppmyth or Mythdora. At the time, it is not a Canonical sanctioned project because of the licensing on several of the MythTV dependencies. Mainly, it can be seen as a preconfigured Ubuntu install for mythtv usage. All unnecessary applications such as OpenOffice, Evolution, and a full Gnome desktop are not installed for a Mythbuntu installation. At any time, a user may choose to install ubuntu-desktop, kubuntu-desktop, or xubuntu-desktop and add a full desktop onto their installation.

The great escape

Posted by Thejesh GN On June - 6 - 2007

Subash has been one of my heroes since school time. How can I miss visiting his home when I have been to Kolkatta all the way from Bangalore? After visiting to Kali Mandir we caught the metro to reach Netaji House. Unfortunately it was 4:15pm by the time we reached. And they close Netaji house by 4. Well everything I wanted to see was outside. The escape route, the car etc. I took few pictures of the house and the steps at the back of the house he used for the escape. I have the picture of the car too. Let me search them and upload.

Inspiring speech by a football coach. Found it on Zoomr Blog. The game in life/field is won by moving inch by inch. Or in small steps. Just need to put our effort and have faith in team mates.
