LinuxMint LMDE 6 Released

The Linux Mint team has released the latest version of LMDE (Linux Mint Debian Edition) and it is the most polished operating system in the Linux ecosystem! Seriously, this release now puts the question before me, as to whether even continue with this project! After test driving LMDE6 for a couple of weeks, I am still impressed but the Arch base still offers more choice and better driver support. So onward with DeLinuxCo!

Test drive it for yourself, I am thoroughly impressed by this release!

Install Linux on intel iMac, MacBook or MacBook Pro

Do you have an intel iMac or MacBook that Apple no longer supports? Well breath new life into it by installing Linux!
You can try it out using live USB to see what works and what does not. As an example, we recently installed DeLinuxCo on a 2011 iMac and it works great! The only item that we did not test was the IR remote.

You may need to install a fan control application called mbpfan-git from the AUR in order to silence the fans of the iMac or Laptop.

Boot to the USB drive, usually holding the “Option” key at boot should allow you to boot from the USB drive.
If needed, upon installing DeLinuxCo, from a terminal run “yay mbpfan-git” and install the package. mbpfan setup…

In this tutorial, we will be going through the steps to get Virtual Machine Manager, also known as “Virt-manager”, installed on an Arch based system. Visit the Virt-manager project page here for more information.
