I have finally completed building my new primary Workstation. The system that the Gurulog is hosted on a dedicated server again. I apologize for the long wait. I had a serious cold/flu for two weeks. Then it took a day to get the new workstation assembled and the operating systems installed. Workstation Hardware and Software… Continue reading Primary Workstation completed!
There is a new kernel release for Fedora 10 released. It is readily available on the public mirrors. I highly recommend it. My initial tests show a 5% performance increase using the 18.104.22.168-170.2.56.fc10.x86_64 kernel.
Another benchmark test this afternoon. Results were consistent with the previous results. An Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 outperformed an Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9650 in several tests Quad outperformed in the SciMark2 Composite (by 20%) and Super Pi v2 (less than 1%) tests.

After a great deal of time and effort, I found revisor to be completely inadequate. It has numerous issues that prevent it from performing the intended functions. I used liveCD-creator as the tool to create the custom LiveCD iso images that I need instead. I was able to create a custom built package set and… Continue reading Revisor part duex
This early AM I was fighting the good fight with revisor. Revisor is a Fedora unity application for creating custom software package sets for LiveCD, LiveDVD and LiveUSB application. A LiveUSB allows you to boot a computer from the USB drive directly to Linux, without modifying the computer hard drive. I ultimately had to uninstall… Continue reading Revisor
If you are experiencing really slow web browsing but downloads seem to be at normal speed, you may be a victim of a DNS (domain name service) cache poisoning attack. This can affect any operating system connected to the Internet. Many of my professional clients have been impacted by this recently. It is becoming a… Continue reading Slow browsing
