Elementary OS beta reviewed

So as how I have reviewed Elementary OS before, I had some idea as of what I was heading in to.  However, to do the tl;dr for those that have a ten second attention span, here is the end result: It is nice, but still buggy.  Use if you want the latest, however, I would advise against it.  I found the desktop slow, and a but unresponsive at times.  Getting the LightDM to work correctly was horrible, every other login was just a black screen, I had to manually restart lightdm from virtual terminal way to many times.

However, if you DO want to try the packages, and hopefully get a better experience that what I did, keep reading below.

 So XFCE4.10 has an Official Xubuntu PPA now!  That means that we can now use the Official PPA stable instead of the previously mentioned XFCE4.10-pre release

Here is how you can do it…

Convert Ubuntu 12.04 to elementaryOS Luna

So while Dan Rabbit’s elementaryOS is still considered a “work in progress”, you can, however, with the help of Ubuntu 12.04 set up the needed PPA’s and get yourself this new Desktop Environment and play with it.  It should be noted that “luna” is considered “unstable”, but I will be honest with you, I have not really had any issues with it what so ever, or at least nothing that a sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade could not fix.

ISPconfig 3 on Debian (OpenVZ)

I discovered an awesome guide to setup ISPconfig 3 this week here:

The Perfect Server – Debian Lenny (Debian 5.0) [ISPConfig 3]

But as i am using Proxmox VE with openVZ it have some little changes to do in the guide so let get it started!

1 Configure the Hostname

At this point you should already have setup the networking here and should be all functional to be able to follow this guide

Edit /etc/hosts. Make it look like this:

nano /etc/hosts

127.0.0.1       localhost.localdomain   localhost
192.168.0.100   server1.example.com     server1
# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1     localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts

Note: The ip 192.168.0.100 is only an example you will have to put your own ip here

Now run

echo server1.example.com > /etc/hostname
/etc/init.d/hostname.sh start

Afterwards, run

hostname
hostname -f

It is important that both show server1.example.com now!

2 Update Your Debian Installation

First make sure that your /etc/apt/sources.list contains the debian-volatile repository (this makes sure you always get the newest updates for the ClamAV virus scanner – this project publishes releases very often, and sometimes old versions stop working).

nano /etc/apt/sources.list

[...]
deb http://volatile.debian.org/debian-volatile lenny/volatile main contrib non-free
apt-get updateRun

to update the apt package database and

apt-get upgrade

to install the latest updates (if there are any).
