Re­quest for ar­ti­cles on NuTyX and LFS

OpenSource For You - - YOU SAID IT -

I have been a long-time sub­scriber of LFY/OSFY and I have pre­served all the is­sues, right from the very first copy.

I am happy to note the con­tents of the April is­sue of OSFY. The ar­ti­cles, ‘A Be­gin­ner’s Guide to Linux,’ and those cov­er­ing the Z file sys­tem, GRUB, etc, will be help­ful in at­tract­ing the new­bies, es­pe­cially stu­dents. Pe­ri­od­i­cally, I’ve no­ticed that there are al­ways some re­quests for ar­ti­cles for be­gin­ners.

The cur­rent is­sue of Distrowatch has a news item on NuTyX Linux and points to nutyx.org. The 64-bit ISO is only 243MB in size and we can eas­ily make a bootable USB us­ing the dd com­mand. The sys­tem loads in a few min­utes in an Atom board with 2GB RAM— the fastest I have ex­pe­ri­enced. The only is­sue is that it is bet­ter to have a sep­a­rate hard disk. Ini­tially, we get only the com­mand mode and though the doc­u­men­ta­tion refers to xfce4, I am yet to try this.

With the ex­pe­ri­ence gained from your magazine, I tried LFS5 some­time back and man­aged to in­stall both the con­sole and GUI modes. Now I have man­aged to in­stall LFS-7.9 in con­sole mode with­out any problems, just in two days.

Hence, I wanted to re­quest your editorial team to give some at­ten­tion to both LFS and NuTyX so that more Linux en­thu­si­asts are won over. The way Rasp­berry Pi has at­tracted stu­dents, hack­ers and hob­by­ists should be an eye-opener for us. —V. S. Na­gasayanam, [email protected]

Thanks a lot for the feed­back. It re­ally makes us feel good to know that you like the ar­ti­cles pub­lished in the magazine and have pre­served all is­sues of OSFY. Know­ing how read­ers have ben­e­fited from the con­tents of the magazine is very re­ward­ing and mo­ti­vates us to come up with even bet­ter is­sues of the magazine. We value feed­back from our read­ers and al­ways try to im­ple­ment sug­ges­tions that would in­ter­est most of the read­ers. So do keep read­ing the magazine as we will soon fea­ture ar­ti­cles on NuTyX and LFS.
