This week, in our Linux Page (in Spanish) we added a post about a new fantastic online service to manage and add software sources to your Sources List (System – Administration – Software Sources). Adding the right repository sources in Ubuntu is essential for a more practical and fast management of your OS. In fact, using the correct sources list you can be sure that your system is always updated and safe. RepoGen has been created for all these reasons. It also automatically compiles all the necessary GPG keys and you have just to add them (one by one) running the suggested command in the Terminal. We tested RepoGen on two different PCs running both Ubuntu 8.04 & Ubuntu 9.04 and were able to update our Software Sources in less of 15 minutes and without discovering a single problem. To conclude we strongly believe that RepoGen is an online service that can help you to save a lot of time and keep your Ubuntu always up-to-date! Strongly recommended!
This week in our Linux Page (in Spanish) we decided to add a short review about LCD (Linux Distribution Choose) a very basic but (we think) effective on-line test which allows people to better choose the most effective Linux distribution for they specific needs. The on-line test starts with few generic questions about your HD partition, Linux skills and if you want to install Linux on a desktop or a laptop. LDC continues asking you some more information about your favourite package management and the preferred desktop environment. The last key answer is about the hardware (you can choose between Mac or PC) and finally you will receive your personalized suggestion about the ideal Linux distribution for you. Simple, useful (for beginners) and fast test. Recommended!
